What a great change!!!!!!!! I hope that all of the CL lounges follow along!

If I remember correctly, when we stayed at CL last week the CM told us that coffee is available outside the lounge between 6:30am-7:00am, then the lounge opened at 7am. So, yes, you can get coffee on CL at 6:30am.

EDIT TO ADD: Oh, he needs to be at TL by 6:30am. For Club Level guests, there are coffee pots and all the necessities to make coffee in your room, if need be.

Didn't see the answer as to if this test is running in the Yacht Club as well. We will be there next week, so I hope it continues. . . .

Oh, by the way, with the BC you have a 50/50 shot at a full balcony while the YC you are almost certain to get one if that is important to you.
Thanks for this info. I guess I'll write down these little differences and we've all vote, LOL. It's win win either way. Thanks!

Can I add a ditto lol? Thanks Dee for the thread and all the info. Teena, my DH is going to be psyched to hear he can get coffee earlier than 7 am!

And thanks for the pictures of the kiddie slide! My girls are going to love that.

Someone mentioned hot tubs...is there one at the QP @ YC? I am thinking not, but never hurts to ask.

Can't wait. A little over two months until our trip

Live from the yacht club! *Having a great trip! *Love the hotel . The resort delivered strawberries and a big white chocolate Mickey as a gift for our 10th anniversary. So sweet! *They also gave us buttons and everyone says happy anniversary and what reminds me I'm at Disney is that every time it sounds sincere! *

Crowds haven't been bad. *And since this is our first summer trip it was a welcomed surprise. *We went to extra magic hours at mk yesterday and had ridden 7 rides by 11:00. *It's hot of course but we expected it being august.*

We had in room dining one night and it was great. Were planning to try cape may tonight.*

Room location is nice on 4th floor have view of courtyard and were able to see the mk fireworks through the trees last night.

Excuse any errors typing away on my iPhone while my husband rides rip ride rock it.

We are leaving for the Beach Club in the morning!
I can't believe the day is almost here!

I just wanted to give a shout out to everyone who posts here, and thank you all for the unbelievable information on my favorite place! We love, love, love, the Beach Club, and I promise to post updates for those who will be arriving after us. If there's anything you think you might want/need while I'm there, I would be happy to oblige...

natebenma, if you need any other photos, just send me a PM, would be happy to get them for you.

Thanks for the info regarding club level, Teena! It's all part of this thread's conspiracy to get our family to try CL next trip instead of standard.

Thanks
Yes. Once you check in, just press housekeeping on your phone and ask for one to be sent to your room.
