Thanks for the recommendation! We have done the Cape May Breakfast on previous trips but never Tusker house which is why we chose Tusker House on this one. I agree, we really do like Cape May for breakfast, each time we go the characters tend to spend more time and interact more with the kids.

Quick Serve Breakfast

We are staying at the YC for the first time as part of a split stay. Is there a place in the YC where my family will be able to get a QS breakfast (ie. eggs, Mickey waffles, etc...).
Thanks for your input!

There is a thread titled "Concierge/Club Level Information- Part IV, July 2012" on the resorts board that has a ton on good info and pictures. I wish I knew how to put the link in here for you...Maybe I'll go look up how to do that!

OK, I'm going to give this a try...here is the link. If you take a look at posts 11 and 12 there are pics of the club level lounges at BC and YC.

We've done Tusker House (Donald's Safari Breakfast). It was a great little change from the normal character meal, kids loved it and the food was had a little flare too.

We stayed at Caribbean Beach Club 3 years ago and had a wonderful time, didn't expect to get back so soon or stay deluxe!! Probably our last trip for a while so I want to make sure we do as much as possible. I'll be traveling with DH (who's not a huge Disney fan, working on converting him though), DS 8, and my mom. Most days are park days and we will be spending three days off sight to go to Universal, June 9-11. Not sure if this is the best place to ask this, but we do want to go to the beach and wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to which ones are closest. DS 8 hasn't ever been to a real beach, we live in Kansas, definitely not an ocean around here! Also wondering about favorite activities at BC that we shouldn't miss? Thanks for any advice!
We have drove both directions to the beach. We have gone to Cocoa Beach and the Space Coast- nice, quick straight ride.

We actually had a better time going west to the gulf coast- north of Tampa/St. Pete. A state park called Honeymoon Island. It was absolutely awesome. It was a very pretty beach. We drove from Orlando on a freeway but drove back through local roads. We met someone on the beach and he recommended stopping in the fishing town of Tarpon Springs on the way back - known for its sponge fishing. Natural sponges of all kinds- very interesting. It also had the best greek bakery. We stopped there and bought a bunch of pastries. Also stopped at a Mango farm which was seeing the real Florida. It definitely would take a whole day to do all of the above.

I just joined the big girl camera club with a Canon EOS Rebel T3, (around $500 at Sam's Club, 2 lenses, camera case) but so far it is not going well. I need to really sit down with the manual and go out and practice. Or maybe reach out to my photography friends here.

I am still in love with my Panasonic Lumix point & shoot. I think it takes decent pictures, but the main feature I love is that it is waterproof to 40 feet, so I can take it with me everywhere! To the beach, pools, waterparks, snorkeling. I never have to worry about leaving it behind when I go into the water.

I paid under $300 for it about a year ago.

If anyone wants to see some of the pictures I have taken with it, you can check out my Wicked Awesome or Epic Fail trip report or the Atlantis portion of my Welcome Foolish Muggles trip report. (Shameless plug)
. I love my Lumix point & shoot too. Mine has 8x optical zoom. I got mine a year ago I think. Was also happy with Canon Elph, but only had 3x zoom. So gave daughter that. Feature for feature Lumix has a better price point then Canon, and has Ziess lens.
I think the Lumix that came out this year have even more Zoom. 16x ?

We have done a couple of trips staying at Cocoa Beach a couple of nights Pre Disney. My daughters love taking surf lessons from Ron Jon's Surf School, last time we got the same instructor that gives the lessons at TL. It took us 45 min to get tovWDW.

We also love the Gulf Coast. St Pete Beach is nice. Powered sugar fine white sand, calm waters. It's a bit further, about a 90 min drive.

Had the problems with keys again. I must be doing something wrong. We had to go through cutting 3 sets of six keys before we finally got a set that worked. Once again don’t think this is a resort problem but a tech problem. Finally went down this morning and got a full set of six that work.

We got here around 11am and our room wasn’t ready. Waited around for first sister and brother in law to arrive. We made it into Beaches and Cream by 11:30. Seated right away. I tried the grilled cheese and tomato bisque for the first time. Another first. Then on to HS.

Had a good afternoon just strolling the park. Rode several rides. Watched several shows. Ride breakdown continues. RnRC went down around 1 (as we were getting in line) and never did reopen.

We had dinner at Sci-Fi. Not something we do every trip but every third or fourth it is fun. Sister #2 and BIL arrived while we were at the Studios. So we are all settled in to 302.

Woke this morning to the sounds of the 5k rocking Epcot. Of course I hit the door around six for my photo walk around. Finally hitting my groove. Back now sitting around with family drinking coffee watching sun come up outside. (What’s more fun than sitting at BLT drinking coffee watching the sun come up? Sitting at BCV’s with my family drinking coffee watching the sun come up!)

Time for breakfast and off to Epcot. Later friends.
Excuse grammer.....Typing fast. Got stuff to do!

View from balcony about 30 minutes ago!
Nice view!! We love Sci Fi! Great sandwiches and shakes. The Ruben is my fav.
