I have corrected the list to add Bellabuddy to the swap for April 10-13, and CT Disney on the swap from April 13-20.

Bellabuddy, could you take a moment and acknowledge that you have seen this message?

Perhaps as the trip gets closer, the two of you can get in touch with one another by PM and discuss the custody arrangements and possibly even arrange a direct hand off.

Again, sorry about this!

Dee, Just catching up on the boards, I work 12 shifts Sat-mon. No worries about noodle swap, April 10th-13th are fine for us. We are happy to spend any time with "Noodles".
CTDisney, I will more than happy to arrange a "safe" handoff, he he!!
Dee, just a little note, we are not on Be Our Guest list, can you add us.
Thank you again for maintaining such an amazing place to post and learn!!!

Nine days until my wife and I arrive at Yacht Club. We've stayed at French Quarter twice before (Port Orleans and Dixie Landings or whatever it was called back before the name change). Also stayed at Pop Century. This will be our first Deluxe visit. We've got a water view room (non-concierge) so I'm hoping it'll be nice.

Debating if we should do the online check-in or not. We don't have any kids but we'll be arriving a bit later in the day (6pm-ish) so I'm not sure if it'll make a difference or not. Thoughts?

Very much looking forward to this trip. Booked it without realizing the Food & Wine Festival was going on and I managed to get us signed up for the Haunted 5K Race (would have preferred the 10 miler but oh well). But hey, what happens happens. This whole thing is a 'If I Don't Get Out Of Work, I'm Gonna Go Nuts' sort of deal.

No better forum to make your first post

I know I know... Fair weather friend I am... Haven't been on in a loooooooonnng time! But it was too hard with know BC trip planned.

After a hiatus that involved the Wilderness Lodge (nice but not our cup of tea). We'll be back at the Beach Club on May 15th! We'll be donug the first 3 nights in a studio on points. Then hopefully we'll get our trade into Brach Club for the week starting on Saturday. Either way we'll have 4 days there and DD will have 4 days in SAB!!!! Yay!!!

Great to "see" everyone again!

Thanks so much. The doctor today gave me the all clear to go (not that I needed it ... I was going no matter what) and I'm loaded down with meds in case I start passing a stone while on board.

I have had water view at BC CL twice. It is so beautiful at night! But we never sit out on the balcony, and never really look out the window after the first day or so. So this time we just booked standard view and requested something close to the lounge. I'd rather sit at the pool or walk along the water then watch out the window anyway.

You can use the lounge as soon as you check in even if your room isn't ready. Have a great trip!

Curious to know what kind of camera you have? I have a Canon 60D and I am pretty addicted to taking photos in RAW format, but I was thinking about getting one of these to use for my iPad. I'm assuming I'll have to do both RAW and JPG or just JPG alone for it to work with the iPad. I'd love to hear how it all works for you. I really don't want to take the laptop with me on our Disney trip!

I didn't realize there were only five! Now I feel doubly blessed to have gotten one for December. I'll let you all know if we get one with a daybed, but I didn't request it, since DS10 and DS6 will be fine sleeping together. (I hope, lol!)

You poor thing! I know so many people who have had those, and I hear they are awful. {{hugs}} and hopes for a calm, enjoyable trip!

Now that's MY kind of meds.

I logged into Disneyworld.com today and it told me I had 74 days to go. We booked this trip in March, so it's exciting to see the numbers get so close. Kind of scary, actually. I haven't done NEARLY enough planning!

Happy day, all!

Just finished packing up; moving to old key west tomorrow.

We've had a very nice stay, but we just didn't take advantage of all the amenities we could have. Wish we would have gotten more time here at yacht club. Also definitely wish we'd have been at beach club instead!! But the hotel has been wonderful, it's beautiful and everyone is so friendly.

Here are some pictures:


I'll end up posting more pictures at a later date, but probably more on my trip report, once I start filling it in! All in all it's been a really great trip, with great weather, people, cast members, and rides. Everything looks shiny and new, obviously a lot of work has gone into the entire resort since I was last here in January.

Hi all,
I haven't posted very often but I have received some wonderful advice and information from all the Beach Club experts on this great thread.

We finally checked in this morning for a short stay as part of our longer 30th wedding anniversary trip and we were absolutely thrilled to learn that we had been upgraded to a beautiful CL lagoon view room ( I had booked a standard GV ! ) we have been spoiled by the wonderful CMs here from the moment we walked through the door!!

We have just returned from a great MNSSHP and were looking forward to trying out the breakfast in the lounge tomorrow morning. The weather hasn't been great today, haven't had the chance to swim yet but were hoping to catch up on that tomorrow.

I'll post a loner review of our Beach Club experiences after our stay is ove
