Thanks for the suggestion! I'll look into that.

Hi everyone . I've been lurking for awhile abosorbing what everyone has to say about Beach Club. In March we stayed at Boardwalk and this March I booked for Beach Club. I love BW, but the pool at BC looks awesome so we want to give it try. We are going March 21 - 30.

I went to book some ADR's this morning and it would not let me pick the Cape May character breakfast. It has it being booked already for every morning of our trip. I did find out from a CM when I booked our trip that there were not ANY standard rooms available so we had to take a water view. Are there conferences there over that 2 week period that would take all of the character breakfasts? Thanks.

I grew up staying at CR & Poly (only hotels back then) and ended up buying DVC at BLT. I love the monorail resorts! I also love BC & BCV! Best of both worlds! I agree this board is very chatty & friendly! If you have any questions about CR or Poly, feel free to ask me.

Amanda, so excited for you! And Mickey T., a big belated thank you for the marathon advice. (I remember telling Dee I appreciated your advice as we were leaving for the cruise last month, but I needed to remember to post it here!) The cross country season is underway for our middle son, and I think that no matter how much we train, we aren't going to be able to keep up with our teenage son in the ToT 10 in 2013 or the 1/2 marathon in 2014! I'm not a big breakfast fan, but my favorites are either not available (Cape May) or not very convenient (Ohana and Tusker!) Let us know what you decide and how it turns out.

As you can see from my signature, we're fans of both too and are starting to book split stays every time! I grew up staying at Poly, but our first CR stay is coming up in a couple weeks. Any thoughts on CL there?

I stayed CR CL last October. Had booked Atrium Club but got bumped up to Tower Club on arrival. The CMs were amazing! A couple of things that stood out to me. We asked one CM if she could call and see if there was any way to move our dinner at Citricos back an hour or two. I figured there was no way, but the CM wasn't going to take no for an answer. So she called the dining general manager at GF and had her move our ADR. I was very impressed by the effort. Another lovely moment was when we were going to have friends of ours come watch Hallowishes from our TPV balcony. We went to the lounge to get some snacks and drinks for our friends and their kids. And the CMs insisted our friends come to the lounge to pick out what they wanted and set up a lovely table on the lounge balcony for us to watch the fireworks. I came away very impressed by CR on that trip.

I think you are a few days too early to make ADRs for most of the days you are there - you're over 180 days still for most of your vacation. So it would show no availability for those days (not loaded yet).

That being said - you are going during probably one of the most crowded weeks at WDW. Easter is your first Sunday there and then Passover starts that Monday. This double occurrence will mean that a large number of school districts will have spring break that same week (usually schools have to choose to align vacation with one holiday or the other). This is probably the reason for standard BC rooms being sold out.

I agree with Missyrose, the CL CM's at CR are fantastic!
We enjoy the daily food offerings. We have breakfast in the lounge every morning except when we have ADR's. We enjoy all the snacks & drinks. The CL CM's told us to feel free to take stuff back to our room and the pool. They are very kind to our children and make us feel welcome.
Sometimes we stay MKV & watch fireworks from our balcony/room.
If we are staying LV, we watch fireworks from the lounge.
Have a wonderful time!

Post 13: Be Our Guest list


Hello

My trip with family will be 11/22 -11/27. 3 generations, 4 rooms and counting at BC. I may be staying a couple of extra days to relax after being with family but will be moving to a moderate for that.

Hi everyone. I'm trying to help out a friend who is there now. They ate lunch poolside, ordered hamburger, 2 chicken sandwiches, PBJ, sushi and 5 drinks and it came to $90. They are wondering if they should have did the QS dining plan, figuring they will be spending $180 day. Could they have done better if they went into the Beachclub Marketplace? Why would this have been so much? I haven't been in touch with them for a while, so I'm not sure if this was brought poolside by a waitress or not. Maybe when the waitress delivers it it wouldn't have qualified for QS anyway??

Actually today was my 180 so I was able to and did book ADR's for my other days (180 days today and since I already booked a package I could book the next 10 days). We are there March 21st - 30th. We leave the day before Easter. We typically go the week before Easter and I don't mind it being busy. Crowds don't bother me and we do a lot of pre-planning before we go so we get our must do's done.

I got all the ADR's and times I wanted expect Cape May for breakfast. Not available at all from the 21st - 30th. Are there different booking rules for resort restaurants? I know the refurb was this past summer, but is there a way to know if a conference is going on? Maybe they took all of the morning character breakfasts for the attendees?

BLT and Missy, thanks so much for the responses! Just upgraded our CR reservation to Atrium Club today! Sorry it's a little OT here - it's one night at the end of our upcoming BC stay and it will be hard to leave BC for something that's new to us.
