Cape May in the BC is our favorite restaurant at WDW. And it is right in your resort! The dinner buffet is very good. We never miss it. You might want a night where you don't have to travel far to eat dinner.

You bring up an excellent point. Mid trip is really the time to plan a close location dinner like at a resort restaurant. At the BC/YC you've got Cape May (Seafood and more buffet), Yachtsman (fancy $$$ Steakhouse) and the Captain's Grille (Mid to upper priced with well rounded entrees to suit every taste)

I especially like the Captain's Grill. We ate breakfast there on the last morning of our trip (yes I know I need to finish my BC trip report! ). The food was excellent and the restaurant has a quiet, grown up feel. It was a nice break from the themed madness that you find yourself eating in when you have kids at WDW. Kids are welcome there however....

My impression of the Captain's Grille was that you got the deluxe dining experience and the not too deluxe prices. I said to my husband if we lived closer, the Captain's Grille would be the kind of place that we would come to regularly when we wanted a nice night out for dinner.

There seems to be a lot of new people on the thread planning trips this year. Definitely think of planning a mid trip night at one of the resort restaurants for dinner. It would be so easy to eat dinner and then plan it so that you still had time to hoof it over to Epcot for the fireworks..... and then head back for a restful night at the resort, just when you really need it.

I've been to Disney a bunch of times, but NEVER the Yacht Club Resort and I am SO excited!!! You guys seem like a great bunch and I'm excited to hang with you here before I go!

BTW, thanks for all the info on coffee- I NEED my coffee in the morning so I'm slightly concerned about these coffee pods..... But if there's "real" coffee somewhere on site, I'm going to be much happier! I'm one of those kind of crabby early morning coffee makers....

I'm so excited!! I scored a (very) last minute point rental for BCV for this week!! This is our first reservation since being extremely local I'm off Wednesday and Friday, so despite working Thursday morning--the deal on points was toooooooooooo good to pass up!!

Checking in Wednesday, 1/30 - Friday 2/1

Wednesday is looking like a great pool day, Thursday looks cold--but I have to work anyway, and I have dinner at Cape May Thursday night!!

Just a random, last minute, get-a-way. I've really had the resort itch lately--and I can't wait to be back at Storm-a-long Bay! This will be our first time on the BC side. We normally stay at YC, and I'm happy to try something new!!!

Thanks for menu at hurr hanna- it looks like many of the items come with cheese (chick sandwich, burgers, and even wraps) - can you request no cheese, or are they premade offsite? Thanks in advance!

Was it a post about the MV agency deal for Labor Day weekend? That might be fully booked, but it's not the hotels, just the special offer sold out since they only have limited rooms at those special rates.

Oops, kept reading and it was a computer glitch...this thread moves so fast, I go to bed and I fall behind!!! LOL

We chatted with the folks at HH on opening day and were told that the sandwiches are made to order. (I am not a blue cheese fan, but was told this could be left off...)

Love this thread! I've been lurking here for awhile and recently booked our first stay at the Yacht Club, May 1-4. Just a short visit before we join family for a reunion at an offsite condo. Those will be non-park days so we can really enjoy the resort. We planned this as a special surprise for DD13 who has some health issues. The past few years have been pretty challenging for her. Staying at BC/YC has been her dream for years, and she's going to be thrilled to finally be able to enjoy Stormalong Bay!

I think we would've preferred Beach Club, but I wanted to be sure we'd get a balcony. We booked garden view. I wasn't planning on asking for anything in particular, as I imagine any garden view will be nice, but I think I'll just ask not to be on the ground floor. I prefer a balcony over a patio. DD sometimes uses a wheelchair, and it seems for that reason we are always given a ground floor room, but it's not really necessary.

Now what's this about real coffee at YC? I know DH won't want to drink Nescafe, that's not coffee, but on the other hand he doesn't like Starbucks. Can he get good old-fashioned plain coffee?

Here. This should help... (From the Dining Post on Page 1):

REAL COFFEE ALERT!!!

Ale and Compass is located just off the Yacht Club Lobby.


In the morning, breakfast items are available like a DECENT cup of coffee and tea, pastries, an assortment of cereal and fruit.



Thanks, Niki in NJ for the photo!

That looks like it would suit our needs for a light breakfast before hitting rope drop perfectly. However, I was wondering if we can use our refillable mugs there. DD likes her coffee and I like my tea so DH usually goes to get them for us while we're getting ready in the morning.
