My bad......the Characters in Flight is re-opened with a new balloon. I am not upon my Disney info.....I didn't see the application notice for the Disney Moms Panel either and now it's too late!

The balloon re-opened earlier in October. My kids and husband highly recommend it! :-)

Question about Concierge Lounge Hours

Ok folks, I have posted in the CL section on page 1 that the Beach Club Concierge Lounge is open 24 hours a day (with brief closings for cleaning and replenishment) on a trial basis.

A few questions for you night owls who have been to the resort recently and stayed at club level.

Is the BC lounge still open 24 hours/day. It has been reported that the selection of drinks was very limited in the wee hours of the morning.

Is (Was) the Yacht Club part of the trial as well- anyone know if that lounge is open all the time too?

Thanks, friends!

I was in DTD this past Tuesday and it was back in action! Looks fun!

I just got back from BC CL on the 13th. The lounge is still open 24 hours. It was open when we got back from MNSSHP around midnight. I'm not positive on the drinks, but I think it's just coke, diet coke, ginger ale, and coffee that is available. There were some light snacks out (yogurt pretzels, trail mix, and Swedish fish).

Thank you! Yes, I knew it had been closed but reopened. A friend's sister just did it this week and that's how we got to talking about it. Hubby said it looked like fun and I started thinking about the great pictures I could get with my new camera from there.

The YC lounge was open 24 hours (except as noted for cleaning, restocking and changing the food offerings) when we were there at the end of August. The same items listed above for the BC were available after 10:00pm.

I am just about organised with my Adrs and been juggling to cram everything in ! Our son is 10 and really looking forward to Stormalong Bay. it was his choice to stay here . I would love to see what pool activities are on while we are there so can anyone help me on that ??
Hopefully we will see many of you out there. Looking forward to some sunshine on our backs after the long drab summer we have had here !! Thanks everyone xxxx

Hi there, we're staying at Yacht Club from a week Tuesday (30th) for two weeks and also have a ten year old son (plus an older son and younger daughter). We too are traveling from England (Cumbria) and are seriously craving some sunshine!

The pool activities sheet for October (and previous months) can be found on the first page of this thread. Perhaps we'll find one another floating around SAB?

The request for the day bed is because my teenage son don't want to share a bed with anyone, (fair enough as it would be me, my husband or my teenage daughter). I haven't told him that there's a possibility of a day bed, if we don't get one I may end up buying a blow up bed for the week.
I would put my requests in order of importance. For us it was getting a full balcony, so that was my only request.
Personally I don't like ground floor, even if there isn't a lot of foot traffic, I'd feel like I have to have my drapes closed all the time.

Last year during our stay (early Jan) they were doing repairs & many parts of the pool were sectioned off.
Thanks!
I haven't heard dates yet. Typically SAB will undergo renovations in January and February. One Third of the pool will be shut down at a time, but the rest will remain open. Then they move on to the next section. So Two Thirds of the pool are always scheduled to be operational.

As I sit here at WL I wanted to share my DH's comments from last night. He is so unimpressed with WL (except the lobby if course), he says I spoiled him with YC last month. Even though there is wood everywhere here he misses the deep cherrywood of YC, lol! Even the kids tell me how yeah they like WL but like YC better!

Guess after we try CR we will be returning to YC There was something truly magical about YC that we just aren't getting at WL.
