As I have stated before we are planning on staying at the Beach Club. We are planning on splurging for club level. When I went allears the reviews are poor to mediocre. However the rev iews for Yacht Club are att 9's and 10's. Are they really that different?

Same food ... comes from exact same kitchen. Same hours. Same managers. And sometimes same cast members.

Ummmmm.....Ninja Mom is at the Beach Club right now and she's not keeping us updated! NM, you better be having a phenomenal trip right now!

In fact, I bet she's having a grand old time with her new pal Tom Collins! Make sure he's mixing those drinks properly, OK?

I will also keep you in my thoughts. I know how hard it can be at holiday times when you've lost someone close to you.

One man's junk is another man's treasure. Everyone has good and / or bad experiences. Problem is that the rule is that if you have a bad experience you are likely to talk more about it than if you have a good experience. I always enjoy reading the good and bad about the places I'm staying then I make up my own mind based on the experience I have. If I'm staying BC because I want the proximity to Epcot and HS as well as SAB, I'll stay BC regardless of what other's have said. I just will temper my expectations somewhat. BC and YC are one big happy resort with similar casts and characters, only the ambiance is different. Have a great time planing your trip and let us know what you think after you've experienced it yourself.

By the way, did they mention they don't have phone books in the rooms at CL? If so, I can understand why you have a lower score over at BC. It's an old joke on this thread based on comments made by one person who believed he had a very bad experience at the BC CL.

My apologies for getting way behind in welcoming our new and returning friends to the thread!



(I had to use just one welcome because I had too many smilies in my original message)

I can't wait to see Tena again and eat at Beaches and Cream.
I do have one quick question, has the BC switched to the new grapefruit shampoo and conditioner? I still buy the blue kind from h2o plus. I would love to get more small bottles. I've been known to refill them.
Oh and when wil the solarium go back to normal? I think that is my DH favorite part of the resort.

Welcome!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list

Ok Miss Dee...I have been on and off the Be Our Guest list for 2012....can't help I am a hopeless changer

BUT thanks to an awesome discount (since we need to rooms) the Pas family's annual Florida trip is booked

August 25th-Sept. 1st YC SV CL!!! Hopeful we will get our connecting rooms the kiddos will be 12,8,7,6 and 4 when we arrive!

It was hard to pick BC or YC but balconies were a factor, and we stayed YC CL just DH and I and we really loved the CMs at YC ...although I definitely plan on finding Teena if she is there and bringing some Chocolate Tastycakes!!!

I just know SAB will be a hit! My DD8 & 6 can play in the sand for HOURS!! I am a MK resort lover, but the monorail gets less appealing each visit...And it'll be a whole new vacation staying on the other side of the world

So my plan is to stalk the thread to prevent any further changing
Welcome back!

I'll add you to the list.

We'll be there 8 nights so hopefully I pick up on some type of pattern. If not, no biggie...just thought it would be nice to know.
Welcome!

I'll add you to the list!

We have a few of our friends who recently returned from CL stays, so I am hoping we will see some new pictures!

We'll be staying at YC March 1 - 9. Most mornings we'll probably just grab and go for breakfast but if we decide we feel like a more substantial meal will it be a problem to walk into Captain's Grille without an ADR?

How about at dinner time? Does it get booked up?

Thanks! We're so excited about our first ever deluxe stay!
Welcome!

I'll add you to the list

Welcome!

Glad to have you here! I do have a list started for 2014 so I will add you to it.

Teena - My boys are probably going to want to pin trade with you again. I hope we can see you!

Thanks again for this great thread Natebenma Even though I rarely post, I always read!
Welcome!

I'm putting you on the list! Sounds like a fantastic trip!

Another fan of breakfast at Captain's Grille.
The cool thing is at WL ...my hubs opened the door without even taking it out of his wallet

We will do Captain's Grille breakfast!!! I must get them Mickey waffles
