OK - just determined that new Photobucket basically sucks. Doing some Googling, I found other DIS threads with people complaining about the same thing. My photos are already uploaded there and the only choices are going to be giant or tiny thumbnails. No happy medium on PB that I can see. I hate the thumbnails because they are so small, but those full size ones are ridiculous.

What say you, BC Deluxe Rooms, Suites, VP and Presidential Rooms readers?
This:


or this:

Foyer/Entryway from double entry doors

Interesting. On my laptop, those photos are two vastly different sizes. On the mobile DIS app, they look the same, both thumbnail sized. But I can click on them and get a bigger version that fills my iPad screen.

LOL - okay that is giant! I have to go look at those Photobucket options for small/medium/large - they changed Photobucket around and I don't know how to do anything anymore. You definitely don't want all my photos that large!

By the way Dee - I didn't realize you were both beachclubdee and natebenma! Very tricky.

Sorry about the issues you are having with Photobucket or as I was calling it, #%&*itbucket. I worked through them, but the changes they made were extremely frustrating!!!

I like the larger pictures better than the smaller ones.

I never did entirely solve the issue of resizing pictures in my account. I found a way and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. So I ended up re-uploading a bunch of pictures in the size I wanted. Believe it or not, the site has vastly improved since the winter "upgrade"

If you still have the pictures on your computer or other easily accessible media, and you want to email them to me, I can upload them to this thread.
The email address I use for DIS "business" is the clever beachclubdee at yahoo dot com

The BeachClubDee screen name came about for a couple of reasons- one, I have major screen name remorse. I hastily chose the natebenma before I had any idea how active I would be on the DIS and particularly the BC/YC forum. Then I maxed out my PM slots, so this other account helps (although I have since maxed that one out too)

But it is a pain to go back and forth between the two accounts, so I remain, mostly, natebenma.

This is just the backside of that galley passthrough that leads around a corner to a food prep type area and door to hallway:


Fridge - not very exciting!


This is that back area - used for food prep I would guess. It has no running water though, which I thought was so odd (guess your personal servants can handle that pesky detail for your dinner party).


Heaven - Keurig with lots of coffee and tea choices!

As you leave the living room, you cross this hallway with a separate entrance to the outer hallway:


This is looking into the Master Bedroom from that hallway:


Master Bedroom - which contains what I refer to as the "George Clooney bed". That's what I was told. There was also some mention of Mariah Carey and Rita Moreno, I think - but I only care about my boyfriend George.




Another shot of the bed I found on my Flickr account:

View from other side, looking toward Master Bath. Doors on left lead to another balcony. That balcony looks across the BC back entrance to the VP suite - I could tell from the previous photos of that suite.

Lastly, just some outdoor photos looking up at the suite, just to get a feel for how truly ginormous it is.

The 3 lighted windows at the top are all the Newport suite master bedroom/bathroom:


The 5 windows at the top here are the width of the suite - bedroom, living room, dining room, bedroom (it's the width of this whole section of the resort that sticks out towards Crescent Lake).


Those 2 lit windows are the 2nd bedroom and the day bed room door:


I think I have some more photos that are different (maybe better, not sure) in my Flickr account. If I find some, I will come back and add them.

We had a GREAT video but at the moment we can't find it. My husband says he saved it somewhere when Apple ended the MobileMe accounts, but at the moment it is MIA. I will definitely post that if I can find it.

And thanks to Neil at the BC concierge for hooking us up with this amazing room!

Syndrome provided this picture of where the X557 Deluxe rooms are located at the Beach Club.

I'll have BeachClubDee add this to the front of the post soon.
