Introduction to Disney's Beach Club and Yacht Club

A sandy white beach along Crescent Lake creates a feeling reminiscent of the lazy days of summer along the eastern seaboard. Relaxed yet luxurious, Disney’s Beach Club Resort shares an array of amenities with its “sister resort” Disney's Yacht Club Resort just a few feet away — a sandbottom pool, health club, full service marina and a beachfront promenade with direct access to Epcot as well as the unique shops and restaurants at Disney’s BoardWalk entertainment district. Classic surroundings capture the essence of New England luxury at the upscale Yacht Club Resort. Its comfy chairs, hardwood floors and shafts of sunlight streaming into a welcoming lobby invite you to linger.


The Beach Club






Thanks siouxi31 for the lobby photos!


The Yacht Club









Thanks kldmom2000 and heatherbelle for the Yacht Club photos!


The Beach Club and Yacht Club are similar resorts in terms of service and amenities, and have equal access to the shared pool complex, health club and video arcade. Both resorts have the same management team in place.

Some minor differences have been noted by guests:

Beach Club
Lighter, beachy decor in lobby and rooms
Lobby can be active and lively with families waiting for meals at Cape May
Closer to EPCOT and Marketplace Gift Shop
Approximately 50% of rooms in all room categories have full balconies. The remaining are standing balconies.


Yacht Club
Darker woods and nautical decor in lobby and rooms
Lobby is more serene
Convention attendees are more likely to be booked at YC
Closer to Hollywood Studios and Friendship Boats
Most rooms have a full balcony



Resort Map




Transportation

Motorcoach transportation is available to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach.

Water launch is available to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Boardwalk,and the Swan and Dolphin Resorts.

Each boat makes the full circuit.
EPCOT Int Gateway -> Boardwalk Inn -> Yacht & Beach Club (shared dock) -> Swan & Dolphin (shared dock) -> Disney Hollywood Studios
Disney Hollywood Studios-> Swan & Dolphin -> Yacht & Beach Club -> Boardwalk Inn -> EPCOT International Gateway

The Yacht & Beach Club boat dock was closed for refurbishment in March 2011 but is now open again.


Walking is also an option to DHS and Epcot!

The walk to Epcot takes about 5-10 minutes depending on your pace.

The walk to DHS will take you a little longer but it is a beautiful walk! The distance from the Beach Club to Hollywood Studios is a little over a mile.
Here's a suggested shortcut if you get to the Boardwalk from the Beach Club side: when you are at the Boardwalk Inn, just before the Wyland Galleries store, is a little opening that leads out to their Luna Park pool area, which you can use as a short cut for getting to the Hollywood Studios walkway and there will be a sign saying which way to go. This way you don't need to walk past the whole Boardwalk area. Alternatively, you
can access the path by walking all the way to the end of the Yacht Club and crossing the bridge there.

Here's a map created by Robo that explains the walking paths from DHS to Epcot, and places in between, illustrated in colorful detail:



Thanks, Robo, for permitting me to post this extremely helpful picture!

Taxi Cabs are readily available to guests and can be hailed by one of the valet CMs outside of the Yacht or Beach Club lobby front entrances, however...

If you are traveling directly from the Y&BC to MK, the Disney bus will take you directly to the front entrance of the park, but if you drive, or take a taxi cab, you must park/get out at the TTC and either use the express monorail or ferry boat to get to the park



Dee's tip for avoiding the worst leg of travel in the World!
Please note that the opinions expressed are those of Natebenma alone (but have been been expressed by everyone else I have ever talked to)

The return trip from Downtown Disney to the Yacht & Beach Club, or to any resort for that matter is notoriously torturous. It's bad! We have not found the buses TO DTD to be all that bad but we HATE the buses that return from DTD to BC, it takes forever since the buses often stop at a water park, or change drivers, or make dropoffs at all of the EPCOT resorts, or all of the above. And the DTD return buses are always crowded. Always.

This is what we do, and it has made our trips to DTD SO much more enjoyable. You need park hopper tickets for this, which IMHO is a great idea anyway when you are staying at BC/YC. It also requires that you return prior to the closing time for EP- either 9 PM or midnight on EMH nights.

When we are on our way back to the Beach Club, we take one of the resort boats (to POR, OKW or Saratoga Springs). We find the bus stop at the resort and hop on a bus to EPCOT, then we walk through the park, enjoying attractions along the way.

Both days we did this we planned our DTD on a morning we had been at EP, and as a double bonus, we pulled a FP to Soarin' before leaving the park in the morning, and then used it on our way back to the room.

Here are the two posts from my TR where we did this.


July 2010: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=238

July 2009: http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...0&postcount=49

A similar method works for us when we are traveling from another resort back to the BC- we take the monorail or bus to EP first.

Alternatively, a taxi back to the BC would probably be around $20. I would consider that, too!


Stormalong Bay Pool and Flying Jib Slide



Stormlong Bay is a beachside water park that offers up 3 acres of aquatic fun for the whole family. Catch currents in an expansive sand-bottomed pool or a lazy circular river, explore the "Shipwreck" and slide down one of the highest hotel waterslides at Walt Disney World Resort, or simply lie on the elevated tanning deck and soak up the sun's golden rays. With 750,000 gallons of water comprising an impressive complex of pools that range from swirling to placid every member of your family can find a place to make a splash at Stormalong Bay. Guppy Bay Kiddie pool lets even the youngest of guests in on the fun.







Thanks for the Jib Slide photo, Marlton Mom!

Enjoy a swim in the unique sand-bottom pool section. Experience the sinking sands area, which is kind of like quick-sand. Your foot sinks into the sand when you put it down. An unusual, but fun sensation!








Float along under bridges and by a beautiful windmill in the lazy river.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Epcot Resort Area Counter Service Options (BW/YC/BC)

The info below is from a sticky on the DIS restaurant forum. Thanks, TDC Nala!!!


ON DDP:
Breakfast: Beach Club Marketplace, Boardwalk Bakery, continental breakfast at Ale & Compass lounge (YC) and Belle View Lounge (BW)

Other meals:
Beach Club Marketplace, Boardwalk Bakery, Hurricane Hannas (BC/YC pool, open during pool hours, wristband admission to Stormalong Bay pool area is NOT required)

Snacks: above plus Seashore Sweets (BW) and the stores at each resort

I do not know if you can use snack credits for any food items that may be available at the Leaping Horse Libations pool bar at BW, someone else may be able to post that.

NOT ON DDP:
Picabu cafeteria (Dolphin), Boardwalk kiosks (Boardwalk Joe's, Boardwalk To Go, Funnel Cakes, Boardwalk Pizza Window)


If you have park admission, you can also visit CS restaurants inside Epcot or Hollywood Studios.
Most of these are on DDP except for a couple of kiosks at Epcot


Refillable Mugs

Refillable Mugs may be purchased and filled at the Beach Club Marketplace (self-serve station), Beaches and Cream (CM assisted service, get into the ice cream takeout line), Hurricane Hanna's (self-serve station) and the Ale and Compass Lounge in the Yacht Club resort (coffee/tea self-service, juices and soda behind the bar).





Thanks for the photos, pixarmom!


Pizza Options at the Yacht & Beach Club:

1) Flatbreads are available in the Beach Club Marketplace which is open from 11 am until 11 pm. See photo above for picture of the flatbread.

2) The Yacht Club and Beach Club In-room Dining Service will deliver pizza to your room.

In Room Dining Menu Link- from allears website: http://www.allears.net/menu/men_ybir.htm

If you are on the dining plan, you may redeem 2 Adult Table Service Credits for 1 Pizza Entrée, 2 Single Serve Non-alcoholic Drinks and 2 Desserts. According to the dining plan brochure, gratuity is included.

IMHO, this is a relatively expensive way to satisfy your pizza craving!

3) The Boardwalk Pizza Take Out Window is a short walk or boat ride away http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/dinin...taurant.ID=398

4) Local pizza restaurants will deliver to the resort.

You will need to meet the delivery person in the lobby to pay for and pick up the food.

Here is a recent thread with pizza delivery information: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2695537

I have personally never ordered from any of the places listed, but these were a few area pizza restaurants recommended by posters on the thread:

Giordano’s: (407) 397 0044

Westgate Pizza Hut: (866) 438-2507

Papa John’s: (352) 243-1800

Flipper's Pizza: (407) 938-9633

Under NO circumstances should you order from any place that slips flyers under the door of your resort room (at Disney or elsewhere).
This is a common scam where you are asked to provide your credit card number and you may be charged much more than you authorize.

Detailed balcony information on Deluxe Concierge Rooms from guests who have stayed there and reported back:

There are six deluxe Concierge rooms at BC.

2557 and 4557 have extra large balconies.
3557 has the standing room only balcony.

3691 has both a standing room balcony and a full balcony

Very few rooms have a king bed or single queen bed. These may be requested on your reservation, but are not guaranteed.

Some rooms have daybeds, which may be requested when you make your reservation, but are not guaranteed.

You may also request a rollaway cot to your room when you arrive. This is provided free of charge and is subject to availability.

There is a side entrance/exit to the Beach Club which takes you mere steps, probably 3 minutes, from the International Gateway Entrance. It is near room 1501.

This was really handy for us a couple of times this summer when it was wicked hot and when it had just started pouring.

You have to go through a lot of hallways to find it, so the best way to do this is to follow the signs to room 1501 from the lobby.

Here are photos of the exit door near room 1501, the pathway and the gate to the "secret entrance"

Frequently Asked Questions and Other Useful Information


What will the view from my room be?

Effective with reservations on January 1, 2011, the view categories at the Beach and Yacht Clubs were reclassified into 3 booking categories:

Standard view- parking lot or rooftops
Garden view- something green- trees or courtyard
Water view- lake or pool


Will I have a full balcony?

Almost all of the rooms at the Yacht Club have a full balcony. A few rooms have extra large balconies that may be shared with another room.
About 50% of the rooms at the Beach Club have full balconies with a table and two chairs. The remaining 50% have standing or "Juliet" balconies.

If you are staying at the Beach Club and a full balcony is important to you, you should have "Full balcony, please" as your first or only request.

When you check-in at the desk, ask about your balcony and if you are not happy with it, ask if there is a full balcony available. CMs will try their best to satisfy you. Don't do the advanced online check-in. This is for guests who will just pickup their key and go, no questions asked and is not designed for people who may request changes to their assigned room.


Will my room have a daybed?

Some rooms at the Beach and Yacht Club have daybeds. You may request a room with a daybed, but it is not guaranteed. You may also request a rollaway cot to your room when you arrive. This is provided free of charge and is subject to availability.

There are two types of daybeds - one that fits a normal sized adult and the other that is best suited for a small teenager or a child. There is no way of knowing at the front desk which type of daybed is in what rooms. It's totally luck of the draw and the CM can't tell you which is in your room if you get a room with a daybed.


How do I make a request on my reservation? How many requests should I make? What should I request?

You should note any requests on your reservation through Disney's CRO (Central Reservation Office) or your travel agent can add it when your trip is booked, or anytime thereafter. Requests should be made no later than 2 weeks before you will arrive at the resort.

Please remember that requests are not guaranteed.

The fewer requests you have, the more likely there will be a room available that meets your most important preference(s).

Your best bet is to request what you want in words, not room numbers. The chance that a particular room will be available during your trip is not as likely as finding a room that satisfies your room preferences. If you request a specific room, and there is someone staying in the room on the day you check in, the room assigner will have to place you in a different room. If they don't know what your priorities are, they will have trouble giving you another room that has the attributes you want.

When you arrive at the resort for checkin, you can ask before you take your keys if your requests were granted, and if not, see if there is anything available that meets your needs. Please note that you should do this through REGULAR checkin.

Online checkin is designed for grabbing your keys and going, no questions asked, so if there is a possibility you will ask for a room change, you shouldn't do this.

Requests vary because what is important to one family may be different for another family. Some popular requests are full balcony at the Beach Club, a day bed, close to lobby (or elevator or Stormalong Bay), close to Concierge Lounge (if you are staying club level) or close to EPCOT.


Should I checkin online in advance or wait until I am at the resort?

As noted in the responses above, if you don't have any questions and if you are going to just grab your keys and go, then you are great candidate for the online checkin. If there is a possibility that you will ask for a room change because you are not satisfied with the one that has been assigned to you, then you should wait until you arrive at the resort to check in.


How do I enter EPCOT at rope drop/park opening?

Guests who enter EPCOT through the International Gateway prior to the park opening time should proceed on the walkway outside of UK and Canada. Cast members are stationed along the way (bridge to France being #1) to guide you through UK and Canada. After you pass the last little cart coming out of Canada you are directed onto the small pathway that leads toward the Fountain of Nations. There you will experience a real rope with CMs and characters milling around. Across from you, maybe forty yards away, are the guests that arrived from the front entrance.

After the countdown, the rope is removed and CMs will escort you to Soarin’ in an orderly fashion. Usually, you will arrive at Soarin' either at the same time or just a moment or so after those who enter through the main gates.

If you have a pre-opening breakfast scheduled at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, you will provide your name and/or reservation to a CM at the International Gateway. You proceed through UK and Canada as described above, then continue past Mexico to Norway.


Should I take the bus from the Beach Club to the Magic Kingdom or go through EPCOT and use the monorail?

We always take the bus from BC to MK!

Bus is definitely quicker:
The ride is less than 15 minutes from BC to MK, then you just have to add in the wait. I think 15 minutes is the most I have ever waited for a bus, it is usually around 5 minutes.

Here is a very conservative estimate of the trip from BC-EP-mono-MK:
5 minute walk to International Gateway, bag check and entry at IG
walk though United Kingdom, Canada and Future World to EP front entrance, 25 min
wait for mono ?
mono from EP to TTC plus changeover to express monorail, 15 min
mono to MK, 5 min.

So a minimum 50 minutes, with a lot of walking, an extra bag check and switching monorails.

Please note: You need Park Hoppers and EPCOT must be open if you are doing this.

That being said, we often take the monorail back to the BC from MK. That way, we can enjoy a couple of attractions along the way, or get some takeout from Sunshine Seasons or one of the World Showcase restaurants on the way back to our room.


Where can I purchase and refill a refillable mug?

Refillable Mugs may be purchased and filled at the Beach Club Marketplace (self-serve station), Beaches and Cream (CM assisted service, get into the ice cream takeout line), Hurricane Hanna's (self-serve station) and the Ale and Compass Lounge in the Yacht Club resort (coffee/tea self-service, juices and soda behind the bar).

Pixarmom provided pictures of the beverage dispensers at the Marketplace.




Can you tell me the hours for Stormalong Bay pool?

I'm sorry! I can't!

I don't know what time SAB opens or if it changes at different times throughout the year. The closing time at night definitely varies throughout the year and is based on things like crowd level, weather, etc. The front desk may have one closing time that they give to guests, but the lifeguards may keep the pool open longer if conditions warrant it.

Sorry it is so hard to answer this question! I don't think the resort posts the time on the activities sheet you get when you check in because the times are subject to change.

The best thing to do is ask the lifeguards when you are there.


Can I bring a float from home to use at Stormalong Bay?

According to a lifeguard, July 2010 (and confirmed periodically):

Outside floats are not permitted for adults in SAB. Pool noodles, either from home or purchased at the pool gift shop, may be used in SAB. Young children may use floats that surround their body if an adult is within arm's reach. These rules are subject to change and may be affected by crowd conditions.


Can I use Stormalong Bay on my checkout day?

Yes! You will still have your room key after you check out, and you still need to show it to the CMs before entering the pool area. You can store large bags with Bell Services. You may also use the lockers and showers/changing room at the Health Club. There are FREE lockers available as well - get the key from PoolSide Gifts.




I'm arriving at the resort after 10 PM. Will I be able to get something to eat???

The Marketplace- Closes at 11 pm
Located off the BC lobby, enjoy salads, sandwiches and desserts from this Quick Service location.

Beaches and Cream- Closes at 11 pm
Located between the BC and YC resorts, step into this classic soda shoppe and enjoy mouth-watering burger and classic sandwiches and top it off with our famous kitchen sink dessert.

Martha' Vineyard Lounge- Closes at 11:30 pm
Located at the BC resort. Relax and enjoy savory appetizers and beverages from the full bar.

Crews Club Lounge- Closes at midnight
Located in the Yachtsman Steakhouse, enjoy a late night bite in this sailing-themed lounge that features beer and wine from the world's famous seaports.

Yacht and Beach Club Private Dining- 24 hours
Enjoy a light snack or casual meal in the comfort of your room or any public area of the resorts. Touch dining options from yoru room phone.

If you would like a full selection of menu items available 24 hours/day, consider visiting Picabu Cafeteria at the nearby Dolphin Resort. The Dolphin is a short walk (10 minutes) from the Yacht & Beach Club.

Here is a sample menu board from March (thanks, pixarmom!)- click on thumbnail photo to enlarge




Can I ship a package to Beach Club or Yacht Club for my stay?

If you ship a package to the resort, Mail by United States Postal Service, not anything else!!! If you mail other than USPS, your items will be shipped to the convention center and the shipping department will charge the recipient a handling charge, based on the weight of your package.

Disney's Beach Club Resort (or Disney's Beach Club Villas)
1800 Epcot Resort Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830
Please give to Guest, (name on reservation)
Check-in date 9/1/10 (for example)

or

Disney's Yacht Club Resort
1700 Epcot Resort Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830
Please give to Guest, (name on reservation)
Check-in date 9/1/10 (for example)

Orders from Garden Grocer are delivered to Bell Services at YC or BC, so they are not subject to the delivery fee. You can ask Bell Services to deliver the order to your room when you are there.


Can you see any of the Illuminations fireworks from places around the resort?

There are a few places where you can view some of the high fireworks from EPCOT's Illuminations show. Many people recommend watching the fireworks from the bridge between the Beach Club and the Boardwalk resort areas. You can also see some of the high fireworks from the Beach Club beach or from the Stormalong Bay pool.

From bridge between Beach Club and Boardwalk (photo by pixarmom), from the beach (photo by creativeamanda) and from Stormalong Bay (picture by natebenma):




What kind of coffeemakers are in the resort rooms?

As of October 2011, the drip coffee makers in the BC and YC resort rooms were replaced.

The regular resort rooms and club level rooms now have the Cuisinart Double Pod Machines:



Thanks for the photo, Rorey!

Please note that the suites reportedly have Keurig k-cup machines.

The coffee makers in the Beach Club Villa rooms are Mr. Coffee-type (drip) coffee makers. I think the 2 BR and 1 BR BCV kitchenettes have a 10 cup machine and the BCV studios have a 4 cup carafe.


Where can I rent a scooter, wheelchair or other mobility items during my stay?

www.KM-Rentals.com and Mobility Equipment Rentals both deliver to the resorts and both run about $125 weekly. KM-Rentals offers free delivery and pick-up ... not sure about Mobility Equipment Rentals.

Wheelchairs may also be provided free of charge to resort guests, subject to availability upon check-in.

A piece of advice about charging your scooter: Charge your scooter in your room. There are limited outlets outside the room, and if you leave the scooter to charge overnight, someone else may come along, unplug your scooter to use the outlet. The next morning, you will discover your scooter has not been charged.


What is a Bounce Back Offer?

Bounce Back is a promotion offered at selected times throughout the year offering a discount on a future trip if you book WHILE YOU ARE STILL AT THE RESORT. It is usually left on a card in your room, but if you don't see a card, you can dial #8844 from any resort phone to see if a bounceback promotion is being offered and what the eligibility requirements are.

You MUST book it before you check-out. Once you get home, you can change the dates or cancel it. However, once you check-out, even if you give them your reservation number and say you were just there, they won't allow you to book it.




What is that awesome smell at the Beach Club? Where can I purchase the bath products used at the Yacht Club?
I've never slept better in my life- can I buy the mattress?


Yes!!!

Want to feel like you are living at the Yacht or Beach Club all year long??? You can purchase the body products provided for use during your stay, you can buy the same type of mattress that encourages restful vacation sleep and you can even purchase the scent system used in the lobbies so that your house can smell like your "Home away from home":

The scent generator may be purchased at www.scentairhome.com
The scent used is green clover and aloe

Check out the Disney Resort Collection for bedding and bath products (h2oProducts, Aquatics line)
www.disneyresortcollection.com

According to cindydare you may want to check out Beyond Down Pillows by Carpenter.
One of the few places that carries them is Belk Dept. Stores in the Southeast.

Here are the direct links to the haircare and bath products

Who can I contact if I have concerns about something during my vacation, I have a great suggestion or better still, to compliment something wonderful about my trip or to recognize a CM who helped make my stay magical?

Comments, Compliments or Complaints:

You can go to City Hall or Guest Relations during your stay

or email wdw.guest.communications@disneyworld.com

or send a letter to:
Walt Disney World Guest Communications
Executive Offices
Post Office Box 10040
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830-0040

When you write or email, please include your name, address, phone number and email address.

Another excellent way to be heard is through exit surveys in your resort lobby. These surveys can only be done on the day you check-out. They start at 7 AM and are done right in the lobby ... the survey cast members usually hang out with their laptops across from the concierge desk or outside near the airport check-in. They have to get a certain number of surveys done every day and once those are completed they leave. Sometimes they are gone by 8 AM. So if you want to do one, be downstairs before 8 AM.

The surveys are reviewed at the actual resort as well as WDW with a fine tooth comb!!! It's the perfect way to get your comments (good or bad) about the resort and/or cast members and/or experiences during your vacation.

If you were given incorrect information from the Central Reservations Booking Office, or if you miss resort-specific merchandise in the gift shops or if you want to recognize a CM who went out of their way to make your trip magical, this is a very effective way for the powers to be to see your message!


Important Contact Numbers:
Walt Disney World Lost and Found: (407) 824-4245, 9 am to 7 pm

Magical Express contact number: (866) 599-0951 or call reservations

Thanks to a very generous offer by Nannette, we can once again start distributing Yacht and Beach Club pins.

Please note that this is entirely a volunteer project by everyone involved so your patience and courtesy is appreciated!


Are you staying at the Yacht or Beach Club or the Beach Club Villas and want to meet or be recognized by other DIS'ers? Thanks to a wonderful design from RustManFan of the Creative Designs Forum, and the enthusiasm of DIS'er Janloz, we now have fashionable pins available upon request and free of charge!





Postage expenses are being generously covered by Nannette!

If you would like to request one, please PM Nannette at least one month prior to your visit to the YC/BC/BCV, providing your arrival month, name and a mailing address. Please note that since we are mailing the pins, you will need to provide an address to Nannette so you must be comfortable with that arrangement. You may use an office address or even a friend's address if you prefer to keep some confidentiality.

Please note that the pins will be sent out on a first requested, first mailed basis, but if there are multiple requests in a short period of time, Nannette may delay the mailing of your pin to help spread out the postage expense, especially if your vacation is a few months away. The goal will be to send the pins no later than 3 weeks before your vacation, so please give plenty of time when you make your request.

Due to the limited quantities available, we must limit requests to 1 pin per family so everyone who wants one will have the opportunity to get one.

Dis User Name: nannette
She has a post on the next page (2) of this thread so you can left mouse click to "send PM to nannette"

Yacht and Beach Club Voluptuous Noodle Swap

Meet the Noodle Family:



Paul, Pastina, Penne and Ramen

They will making their first visit to Disney World and the Beach Club in June 2011. They have decided to take up permanent residence at the resort and will be spending time with different families as part of a "noodle relocation program"

************************************************** ********************************************

Well, after their introduction to the Beach Club/Yacht Club and Stormalong Bay, the Noodle Family has decided to stick around. The first handoff was successful!

We want to make sure that we can keep these guys around for as long as possible- so here are some suggestions

1) Apparently the noodles' skin is impervious to tattoos. The sharpies did not work. So, no drawing on the noodles- pictures are still encouraged, though.

2) Please exchange contact info with the family you are handing off to or receiving the noodles from.

3) If for some reason the noodle handoff does not go as planned OR if you are the custodians of noodle prior to a "GAP" period, please return the noodle family to Bell Services, using the pickup name "Mrs. Noodle". Bell Services will be their default "home away from home"

4) If you are picking up the noodles from Bell Services, please tip a couple of dollars. It won't take the CMs very long to figure out what is going on or to notice that the same noodles are returning again and again, but as long as everyone is polite and generous, I don't think there will be a problem.

5) If there is a problem with your handoff or pickup, or you suspect that the noodle family may be MIA, please alert natebenma or Marlton Mom by PM ASAP. If a noodle recovery team needs to be assembled, we are on it!

Thanks, and enjoy!

Please get a picture of your family or yourself with the noodles when you have them. Even better would be a picture of you AND the person you are handing them off to if possible. This is a great way to meet your fellow Yacht & Beach Club FAQ thread friends over something extremely silly!

If something happens to the noodle, it's OK... really! Just let us know and then some one down the line can try to replace it if they get the chance. This is all for fun so don't freak out if the noodles get lost or damaged. Have a great vacation and take care of the noodles with out fretting about it!

Pictures of the noodles engaging in your vacation activities are WELCOME! Say you are having a drink by the pool... take a picture of the noodle (with yourself as well if you want) 'posing' with the drink and post it on the Yacht & Beach Club FAQ Thread. Be creative! The sillier the better and an imaginative caption will help to set the scene and tell the 'story'.

The families involved in each hand-off would be responsible for contacting each other to arrange a time/place for the swap, or if the noodles need to go to Bell Services for a short vacation, please pass along the claim number to the next family and leave the package under the name "Noodle"

Lily's Pad



Princess Lily!!!

Disney (and the Beach Club’s) newest princess has arrived:





Lillian (Lily) Grace
Born 7/11/11, 7:59 am
6 Lbs, 11 oz, 20 inches


Please note that Lillian is a name truly worthy of Disney royalty as this was the name of Walt’s wife.

It also goes without saying that 7 come 11 is a great date for a baby born in Las Vegas!




Congratulations to Jeanne and Brian and to proud Nanny Teena and Pop Pop Bob!






Lily at 2 weeks old:





Lily at 3 weeks old- Tough Day at the office:





Come Dance with me- 1 month old





Breaking News: Lily likes her baths now! 1 month old:




Sister Love



Touchdown! Go Eagles! (insert your home team here)



Dreaming of Disco Dancing



Lily at 3 months old:







Lily's First Halloween- Disney-style of Course:

Lily and her parents were first place winners in the Best Group Costume Category.

Teena's grandaughter is an adorable Dalmation!




Jeanne, Teena and Lily:




I know a lot of you are new to the thread- there is a lot of history here and a lot of great friendships made in past versions of this thread, but I want to introduce Teena to anyone who doesn't know her (yet).

Teena is a greeter in the lobby of the Beach Club





Look for her on Sundays and Mondays unless she and Bob are on one of their treasured cruises to Castaway Cay or out visiting her two shining lights in Vegas, her daughter Jeanne and her first grandchild, Lily born in July.

We were all eagerly awaiting "Peanut's" arrival in the months leading up to July and even had some fun, friendly competition to guess her birthdate and whether she was a Princess or a Pirate.

Lily's arrival was a very special moment for our beloved Teena in a year that has been tough due to some health issues. She bravely shared what she was going through with all of us, once again, in an attempt to help others who may be facing similar challenges.

Teena has faithfully posted on this board and has helped us all gain great knowlege about these resorts, so many of us who hang around here can now also answer the questions that are posted here.

I will occasionally post the photos she provides to me, because, well, Teena may know everything there is to know about the Beach Club but she don't know beans about technology!


OK, intro over! Back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Dee (Natebenma)

BTW- Kudos to Cinderumbrella (July 10) and 333disneymom (July 12) who came closest in the "Is Peanut a Princess or a Pirate" pool-
Honorable Mention goes to BCV23 for having the correct date (July 11), but the wrong gender!

Subbing to new thread...I am addicted! I am on many threads and I will say that this is the best group of DIS'ers!!!! Thanks Dee!!!


I didn't realize Princess Lily was born on 7/11! I was actually at the BCV that day so I didn't have access to the thread....That is my dog's birthday and we called her Princess Bailey (course she turned 10). So I am biased as it being a great day. Congrats again!
