I Did It....I Booked Today

After thinking and thinking I finally made a decision today and had my cousin who is a TA book a trip for me.....AND I am staying at the resort that I've always dreamed of staying BEACH CLUB!! I was trying to decide between POR, WL or BC and Beach Club won.....How could it not, right?? I stayed at WL last November and absolutely LOVED it. I ran the numbers and BC was actually cheaper than WL (Courtyard View).......I have a garden view at BC. Trip is scheduled for Jan. 13 - Jan 19.....Hope I can still get some good ADRs....if not, oh well!!

I love the Beach Club! It's just so "airy" and pretty, and the location is wonderful. I love the short stroll to Epcot, and taking the boat to DHS, walking to dinner at Flying Fish, or to breakfast at the YC. It was my "dream resort" for my first stay, and "home" for my first solo trip adventure. If money were no object, it would be difficult to look at other options.

Flying Fish was great, food and service. I had the prix fixe dinner that was a Valentine's special the night I was there, but is apparently a regular fixture now. Crab cake and Caesar salad to start, for the entree a combo of the potato wrapped snapper and steak, and banana napoleon for dessert.

Enjoy your trip. The hardest part is trying to decide where to stay, at least for me!

We are doing the opposite!! Last trip we stayed at the Beach Club!! This trip we are staying at the Wilderness!! You'll love the Beach Club. We loved the location and the pool. But beings our next trip will be near Christmas...and probably won't get to enjoy the pool like in August...we decided to try the WL. Hope we aren't disappointed! Have fun!

Come to this thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3025785

...and read a fantastic, comprehensive information site about all things BC/YC/BWV. Page 1 has a ton of useful, insider tips and the people who post there will be happy to help you with any questions you may have. Mosey on over and say hello!

PS. We have a joke on the BC thread about who ever refers the most people to the FAQ wins a toaster oven. You may very well put me in the lead if you check in over there. If I do win the imaginary toaster over I will be sure to celebrate and make you an imaginary grilled cheese sandwich!
