Hi Feckless! Good to see you! It's either ToT 10 in 2013 or 1/2 marathon in 2014. I think ToT 10 is likely - we'll see how we like fall in WDW in a couple weeks!

You will love it! It's a beautiful resort and there's nothing better than waving to all the bus/monorail crowds as you leisurely walk back to your resort!

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??
That seems really high! Were these regular soft drinks or drinks with alcohol? Did this include a tip?

Let's say your friend paid $10 each for the hamburger, 2 sandwiches, sushi (1 order) and PBJ- that's $50. Then another $40 for the drinks (5 drinks, $8 each).

Here's a couple of pictures of the menu from the Marketplace (these are over a year old):







Sounds like they definitely would have been better off getting food at the Marketplace.

I know.. doesn't sound right. I don't think they were alcoholic drinks, if so it only would be 2- rest soft drinks. I guess it does cost more for poolside service. When I get more info I'll let you know.

I thought I had a picture of the prices/selection of the grab and go items at the pool, but I just searched and couldn't find it.

Hi everyone, I have been out of the loop for a few days. We are arriving at Beach Club on Monday.

We are there to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, so looking forward to staying at a Epcot resort, for the first time. We booked a standard CL view room. So is there anything new we need to know or suggestions to make the trip extra special? We will be staying for 6 nights. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Any chance the noodles are available for our stay 11/24-12/1? I think I saw someone earlier for 11/28-12/2? Would be willing to handoff on 11/28 as needed, please let me know! Thank you!!

We will be staying at Beach Club Villas in two studios 4/13/13 to 4/20/13. Please add us to the list. We would be happy to meet other adults when we are there.

This is an adults-only trip. My wife and I will be celebrating our 50th birthdays and we are taking my mother in law as well. This will be both mine & MIL first visit ever.

Advice on room requests is appreciated. We would like a full balcony for the morning coffee/evening wine. What is the likelihood our two rooms will be reasonably close?

We had poolside service many, many times in July this year and the price was exactly the same as it would have been had we walked to HH and picked it up ourselves. The only difference was the tip and the amount to tip was suggested on the reciept. You can also order using your dining plan no problem. Those cocktails are quite pricey though so maybe that could be part of it?

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

I'll add you to the list. Sounds like a fantastic family trip!

I will leave it to the DVC experts to answer your questions about the villas, but the good news is, I believe all of the rooms at BCV have full balconies or patios (if you are on the first floor)


To everyone:

Have you checked the Be Our Guest list lately?

Is your info correct?

Who will be there at the same time as you???

I will add you to the Noodle Swap for Nov 24-Nov 28. As your trip gets closer, I suggest you PM BackstoryWorthy to see when they will be picking up the noodles, or perhaps arranging a direct handoff if it is convenient for both of you.

Good morning
Friday morning DH & I woke up around 5:30am to go for a morning run! We ran around the Boardwalk which was torture smelling the bakery . After our run we headed over to MK where I tried out the new FP +, really only used it once cause we ended up meeting my friend and her family. I haven't seen her in 7 yrs!!! If we would have stuck with the original plan it would have been great. Dinner at Cape May which we all loved It was raining really hard after dinner so we decided to head back to the room for the night.

Saturday morning DH & I went running on the path to HS which was awesome!!! Can't wait to do that again. We went to AK for the morning, had some lunch, then back to the room for a nap/laundry. Woke up walked through Epcot rode Living with the Land & Spaceship Earth the. Took the Monorail to the Poly for dinner at Ohana!! After dinner we went to MK for MSEP & the fireworks !!!! We ended up staying and riding some rides, didn't get back until midnight !! Needless to say no early morning run today .

Lalabubbles- we appreciate the updates about your trip so far!

Babyberger- thanks for sharing your fantastic pictures and descriptions from your trip. That WAS a fabulous view!!! What room #?

pixarmom- check out Missyrose's TR from 10/11 (Boo to Two) for some great information about her stay at CR

To anyone else who enjoys trip reports-here is a plug for the ones from Missyrose- Absolutely amazing photos from her boyfriend Franklin accompanied by well-written commentary by Missy. Great food porn, too, if you are into that!

Can't wait to see her report after her stay at BCV!

A few pictures from Teena's cruise

Here are a few photos taken before Teena's ship sailed off. I'll post more when she sends me some after her return.
