We had a fabulous trip! Sadly we r on our way to the airport. Just talked to Teena for awhile. Hi Teena Dh says the drawing classes were his favorite. I also enjoyed them. I will give a bit more detailed report a little later but for those wondering our room was great and mouse keeping did a fantastic job

We got back late Friday night from probably our most memorable trip ever. We stayed on DVC points the first two nights at Jambo House and moved to Club Level at the Yacht Club on 10/30. When we checked in, the front desk CM pulled up our reservation and said "Oh, we have some serious magic happening today."

The next thing we knew, a bunch of CMs came out from the back with balloons a a certificate naming us family of the day. The front desk agent handed us off to a different CM who then brought us up to the 5th floor. She led us past the lounge and down two hallways until we reached a small hallway with only two room doors in it. They had upgraded us to the Commodore's Suite. It was AMAZING. Two bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a living room with an amazing view of Stormalong Bay and the Boardwalk. We could not believe it.

This trip was to celebrate the end of a terrible year for my mom who was diagnosed with lung cancer in November 2011. She spent all of the past year undergoing testing, surgery or chemo. She is currently cancer free and I planned this trip as a way to celebrate that and give us all some time to really relax. I never imagined anything as magical as what we experienced. It was truly wonderful and I am so grateful.

I have not uploaded any photos to my computer yet but I will try to post some soon.

I'll be reading on this thread and getting ideas on any requests I might want to make for my sister and me, so we can have the full YC experience.

I was particularly interested in someone's comment re: refilling the mug and having a longer walk to do so. I am a big coffee drinker and NEED my morning cuppa joe..exactly where is the Hurricane Hannah's that was mentioned to have a refill station?


Let us know when you and your sister have booked a trip.



Hurricane Hanna's is the quick serve restaurant and bar located at the Stormalong Bay pool. It is currently closed for refurbishment but I believe it is scheduled to open sometime in December.

In the morning, you can get your coffee at the Ale and Compass lounge in the YC lobby. Reportedly "Real Coffee!" In the morning, this area serves a continental breakfast.

According to what others have reported, you can only use this lounge to refill your mugs until about noon, when the A&C switches over to a bar.

That's fantastic! What a great surprise and hopefully an indication of better times ahead for your family.

Have fun with your casino night - we did one last year and had a ball.

November 17 is our "Designer Bag Bingo" this year. We're trying something new - hope it works out as well as the casino night. Good luck!
I may email you to see if you have any Casino Night tips for me.

Good luck with your fundraiser! Sounds like a blast!

As Dee said, the Ale and Compass in the lobby is a really good option in the morning for a pre-park breakfast and for a morning coffee. The coffee is great Refillable mugs; coffee, tea, soda. Breakfast; muffins, pastries, fruit, toast etc from 6am until noon.

If you're on the dining plan you can get a refillable coffee and pastry for a snack credit.

I would love it if anyone can help. We are planning our next trip to disney in oct 2013. I have been a lurker for some time and have read threw most of the thread on BC/YC. A while back someone had posted a pic of the "bountiful breakfast" being offered at The market place. Is it true or did I misunderstand the post. And was it a pic of breakfast at cape may. Eggs & Mickey waffles would be great for the kids.

My recollection is that @ DL Small world during the holidays the children sing Christmas carols. It has been awhile since I've been to DL but I liked that seasonal touch.

Yes they have a breakfast platter at the Marketplace. That's a quick service restaurant (grab and go). Cape May is a character buffet ... very expensive ... you are basically paying for the character interaction. The Captain's Grill has a sit down table service breakfast ... either order off the menu or buffet but it's cheaper because there are no characters.
