Wow - thanks for posting the video. I saw that person had some more installments on youtube. So far I looked at installment #1 (their arrival day). You should see the neat illustrations they have done with the video - FANTASTIC!!

And they were staying BC CL - they also show the lounge offerings and evening cordials, too. Check it out:

What a cute, happy couple!

I agree, I looked at the others with BC in them after this one, really cute. I love how she used Google Earth and then would go to live video plus the added animations are great. It helped me to understand how close BC is to IG and more about BC and CL lounge since we will be staying CL this trip.

I haven't looked through the photo thread yet, so maybe there is something there.

Thanks!

Here are pics of kiddie slide. Finally downloaded pics from recent trip to photobucket:

Found our way home!

And, in case it wasn't already answered: on the last page of the closed thread, there was a pearl question. I recall seeing a pick a pearl-type stand between the ship (where the slides are) and the boat dock. I think its right next to the ship, before the walkway crosses the creek out of Stormalong Bay.

Thanks for the little slide photos, Hockeymom! I think they will be a great resource for those with little kids concerned about the safety of the "big slide!" Hopefully, more families will be able to enjoy it as much as we do!

Awesome thread!

I have a dumb question - we just decided last night we'd stay at YC or BC for our family vacation (in 3 years haha) instead of WL - now how do you decide between the YC and the BC? So far the only difference I see is the color of the buildings? Am I missing something?

When was this resort last renovated? When I look at pics I see wood headboards with white spreads and some brass with pink and green. We have a standard view room what should we expect to have in our room?



Beach Club- New Lobby
Yacht Club- Exterior (especially a view from the Boardwalk vantage point, with lighthouse in photo)- I know, picky picky.
Yacht Club- Lobby
SAB-Whirl Pool, Hot Tubs
Kiddie Slide (maybe HockeyMom) and Playground
Campfire (I have one taken during the day, looking for one with FIRE)
Movies on the Beach
Arcade
Health Club

Quiet Pool(s)

Beach Club Villas- exterior

At some point I will get room photos up, but this is not one of my priorities.

PM me if you have any of these photos to put into the FAQ section. I can credit you by screen name, real name or not at all.


If you see any information that needs to updated or changed, please PM me!

Anyone know the August movie schedule and time??? I will try to keep this updated monthly.

We're chatters! I know we can't go very long without having a home thread!

Thanks!!!

It wasn't really a false alarm. There was no fire but an electrical panel behind some wall or something set it off. It could have been serious had an alarm not gone off and they found what it was. We do not ever have drills where guests are evacuated. So if an alarm goes off, leave immediately ... it is not a drill. Something is definitely wrong. Thank goodness it turned out okay.

Something similar happened six months ago but during the day. People wouldn't leave that were checking in ... I was screaming "IT IS NOT A DRILL ... IT IS REAL."

During the time I've been there (6+ years), while I was working nobody set off an alarm as a prank. The two times the alarms did go off it was because something was wrong. Obviously the system is working correctly.

We have to evacuate in cases like this ... totally for the safety of the guests.

I've been evacuated from a large hotel in Las Vegas once. That was very scary.

Thanks!

How was dinner last night?
At the BC (not sure about the YC), we have never been able to sell a CL lagoon view to families larger than 4. So it is definitely 4. The plus means a child under 3.

Dinner at Cape May with my Disboard pals was fantastic. Bob and I ate way too much though. It doesn't get any better ... a great meal with great people!

Ok, I will keep it at 4+ (the + is explained in the listing)

Just one more question (at least for now). Should the rooms at Club Level at YC and BC be listed as Water View Club Level, Water or Pool View Club Level or Lagoon View Club Level? They are listed as Water or Pool View for the regular rooms.

Since the resort is going through all of the trouble of reclassifying , I would like to make sure I get the listings as accurate as possible.

And thanks to everyone for your pictures and feedback. I really had a great starting point with all of the information and links on the previous thread, but I am so glad to see pictures again!
