I was going to request a ground floor( is this also called 1st floor in the US?) but didn't want to risk having a room at the front on the ground, they look much nicer on the back side of the BC.

Hope you understand me!!!!

Thanks
This will be our first time at BC but our 11th WDW trip. You can request bedrails from housekeeping.

I have pictures of the ones from the March 2012 reintroduction of resort-specific merchandise. Are these the ones you are talking about or are there different ones being introduced?

Beach Club Mug, LUGGAGE TAG (1 of 2) and Water Bottle




Note: the mug and the H2O bottle ARE NOT dishwasher safe. The luggage tag is in the middle in front of the glass. In in Feb of 2012 , The mug was $11.95, this type of luggage tag was $4.95 and the water bottle was $14.95


I don't have a picture of a YC mug (if one does exist), but these are the two designs that have been on most of the YC merchandise:

ABC Commisary

I am still chuckling about Dee's Time Out Corner by Starring Rolls. I noticed you all don't seem to like ABC (I have never tried it) but I just saw thee new menu for there posted on the Disney Food Blog pinboard...I will try to attach the picture or maybe just a link if it lets me....maybe this is a better offering?

Did some digging...

If we leave on 8/2 instead, we can get a flight for under $800 including taxes/fees. Possibly doing a night at an Allstar (Sports maybe) for $179 before 15% Visa discount...

I think we are becoming Split Stay peeps...
Dave!

So All Star Sports 8/2, then BC Aug 3-10?

I like Starring Rolls myself...but DH hates it, due to a little incident on our first trip with kids, where it was really crowded, and the tray ended up turning over and dumping everything to the floor...he let out a very loud non-Disney-like expletive and the whole place went silent with people staring at him...so he's very grumpy whenever I suggest it.

It's not a lunch place...but our new favorite snack place in DHS is The Writer's Stop (carrot cake cookies! yum!!!)
I'll take the 14 teenage boys over 10 almost teenaged girls. Bless you!

Your story is hilarious!!! Does DH know you shared it with all of us?

BUT, she's 5 and I thought about how in a few years she might not care much about the LM so we booked AoA for 8/14 and 15. Still waiting on AP discounts, but seriously considering BC or YC CL for the next 3 nights before we go to VWL. Even if we don't do CL, we'll still be at BC/YC because I think the kids will love Stormalong Bay. I love CL! DH can take it or leave it, but I think with young kids, it's so convenient in the morning. Never stayed CL at BC or YC so that's exciting too
I'll make the adjustment to the Be Our Guest list. Sounds wonderful!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list. Wishing you the best for finding some decent airfares.



Sorry, no tips from me about traveling with babies or young kids, although I do believe I have read that the childcare stations in the parks are excellent for nursing moms or parents who need a quiet place to feed their babies.

Sue, so sorry to hear about what an awful, pain-filled year your daughter has had.

Wishing you the best trip ever!!!

If so I was thinking we can load the car up before we eat and then after drive over to GF, so our kids can do the pirate cruise at 930. (It is not offered at YC this day ). Do you think this is possible to do with time with a 730 reservation?
I'm pretty sure SAB opens at 10 am every day. As others have said, the quiet pools at BC, YC and BCV will be open in the morning.

That is funny! It IS a small world. I just noticed that our dates at the resort coincide. So if you see a bigger version of Flat Ben, along with a teenager with a surly look on his face, a handsome man who looks a little bit like Anderson Cooper and a short, perky mom walking a few steps behind the others snapping photos, please say hello!

You can look up the month of your stay on the right side of the site in the Categories section. You can then read past the intro to what is going on that month and get the hours for each day of your visit. The times and park recommendations are in paragraph form so there is a lot of detailed information, but all of it is GOLD!

Josh's site is considered the best for up to date park hours as he uses a number of reliable information sources. Before I go on a trip I do my final park hours check on his site about two weeks before my trip but I pencil everything in on a master schedule weeks before using Josh's data.

The hours that the parks used last year will be different from the ones that they use this year due to changes in the Extra Magic hours. Josh already has this information factored into his schedule to the point where reliable information sources have revealed what any changes will be.

You can't go wrong when using EasyWDW!
Wow- I haven't been on that site- the calendar is awesome!!! Thanks for sharing this info.

I'm running the full marathon this year, and the finish line for the marathon is also in Epcot's parking lot. So back to the Beach Club we go. It's not cheap, but I booked Club level again because the wonderful pre-trip planning assistance. Their advice and arrangements made the Wine and Dine trip very very enjoyable.

Rick!

January trip?

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

Mike- do you still have the cup? Although warnings are included in the packaging materials (I'm told), others have been successful exchanging mugs in similar conditions to yours.

I will watch for you! This trip is just me (average size, red hair, and likely sporting a sunburn) and DH (average size, salt-and-pepper hair, tan).

We will look extremely happy because we won't have anyone else with us! I've done trips with just immediate family, with kids and both sets of grandparents at the same time, and with 100 high school students!

I asked on the beach club marketplace thread buy haven't received a response. I figure this thread gets more traffic, so I'll ask here. Anyone know if powerade is available on the dispensers for the refillable mugs? I'm thinking no, but wanted to check. What about sprite zero? I think these were both options at assp but can't remember if they were there when I moved to bcv. Headed down on thursday.
