I believe they are open 24 hours a day.

Lifeguard at any time?

Anything else I should know about them?

Are there Hot Tubs anywhere in either SAB or the Quiet Pools? Where?

Thanks!!!
Each resort has a quiet pool with hot tub. There are 3. No lifeguards. They are open 24/7.

Glad to hear that dinner went well. How's the DIS meets going? I'm betting they are keeping you busy.
Only had that one meet scheduled definitely. I'm hoping someone lets me know if another one gets scheduled.

For the information page at the beginning:

Martha's Vineyard now opens at 5 PM (to coincide with Cape May's new opening hour of 5 PM).

The Presidential Suite at the BC has changed it's beds. The master suite has a king, the second bedroom has two doubles and a study with a daybed, so it will sleep 7.

Thanks! I will make those changes and please keep them coming. I think the links to the restaurant menus disappeared, so I will have to add those back in.

They are running a test up on club level. The lounge will now be open with drinks and snacks all night long. So at 2 AM if you want a soda or iced tea, go for it! The lounge will still be closed during "change overs" but CMs are suppose to get you anything you need or would like during those few times that the lounge is closed for cleaning and change of items - JUST ASK! For those of you that are on club level, please, if you like this change, then make sure you tell a manager. Seek them out! Whether they are upstairs on the 5th floor or whether you need to find them in/around the lobby, make sure you let them know you like it. I have no idea how long this test period will last.

WOW, I hope this is something that stays around since my trip is still over a year away. I am a HORRIBLE sleeper and it's even worse when I'm not at home. This would give me somewhere to go in the middle of the night when everyone else is sleeping and I'm laying there wide awake. It's either that or the lobby

Can a microwave be requested in the room at the Yacht Club? I am getting a cm saying that we cannot request one but she didn't seem too sure herself.

I know that I have read they are available at the Polynesian but haven't paid attention if they were available at other resorts. Since the YC doesn't have a food court we don't have that option

Thanks

The new beds at BC are really great, I presume these are the same at YC. New mattresses as of the renovations within the past year or two. Much improved over the previous bedding!! We have also stayed at AKL and the new bedding at Y&BC is really great, no worries.

We have never requested one, but the information previously from this thread and others states you can indeed request a micorwave. Hopefully someone will chime in with 100% assurance on this.

Hi we are coming in six days and I was just wondering if anyone has any information on the t-shirt activity? I think it is t-dying. Do you have to bring your own shirt and how much does it cost? Do they know how to make those cool mickey head t-dye t-shirts? Any info. would be much appreciated

This is great news. We are staying CL next week. Do you think that the test will still be running then?
