Not sure if I have welcomed you to the thread in the past, but you can't have too many so here ya go!

Thanks for the info. Like you said, IPO does not always contact guests proactively, although they are supposed to, so I think it is a good idea for guests to contact IPO with any questions if you haven't heard from them. Include your reservation number on any emails.

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!
Sounds like a nice trip for just the two of you! My DH and I took many trips to Disney together before the kids were born (including our high school senior class trip together). I hear you on accompanying swarms of teenagers to the World. That was my last trip!

I used to be a frequent poster on the CB (among other places), but haven't been around much recently.

We have been to WDW several times, but have always stayed at AKL in a Savannah View room. That resort just feels like home to us! But this time around, DH has decided he really wants to mix it up and stay somewhere (anywhere!) different, so BC it is! Based on all the info and photos I've found here, I am sure my family and I will love BC, but I am secretly a tiny bit sad that I won't be staying at AKL. My kids, who really adore AKL too, were won over to BC when I showed them photos of SAB. Plus, we have the recommendation of a good family friend whose favorite resort is BC. We are fortunate enough that this friend even booked our stay for us using a CM Friends & Family discount.

We are actually going to be staying off-property from the 14th to the 19th (totally NOT my idea!), and then moving over to Beach Club on the 20th. So much of this trip is outside of our usual WDW trip that I am feeling angst-y about it. It goes against my inner control freak to delve into the unknown.

Now you all have WAY more info about me than you ever wanted. Feel free to shoot me suggestions about being a first-time guest at Beach Club. Do's, don'ts, whatever you've got! Nice to meet you all!
and thanks for the intro!

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



The one thing to know as a first time guest is just how great it is to be able to stroll on over to EPCOT in about 5 minutes! And to have really easy access to Hollywood Studios as well.

Hope you love it!!!

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.

I need the bottled water to take my meds etc.

Just wondering if we should make our usual hess mini mart trip?

Also do they have bananas in the club lounge. I dont see any in the pictures that I have seen so far. I need them for my potassium def. Hence hess stop etc.

TIA
I just responded on that other thread with the contact info for IPO. I think I see bottles of Powerade in the refrigerator at the Marketplace, along with lemonade and possibly bottled ice tea.

When you contact IPO, let them know what you need and why.

I'm pretty sure when we stayed CL last (2010) there were bowls of fruit in the lounge. Apple, banana, oranges. I'll go look for a picture. But if this is something you need, I would let IPO know in advance to make sure they have some available for you.

Here you go- from 2010, BC CL:

I look forward to seeing you. I should be working the Sunday and Monday that you are here.
Give a call to IPO. Ask to speak to Lauren or Michelle (my favorites). Tell them about your cancer and ask about bananas. They have bottled water in the lounge and you can ask for bottles to take back to your room. Also you can ask for smaller bottled water to take to the parks, pool, etc.

Welcome Lynette!!! I'd say you picked an excellent resort for your "away from AKL test" The CM's are great! SAB is a must mid-day break. And our favorite part is the nightly stroll over to EPCOT for dinner, an adult beverage, and my two favorite snacks..............Pretzel in Germany and Caramel chocolate covered pineapple with a side of Dark Chocolate sea salt caramel

Enjoy Your Stay

Oops ... guess I should have clarified. I think marsh0013 was asking about Powerade as part of the drink refill stations. Powerade is an option for refillable mugs at All Star Sports but I haven't seen it as one at BC.

Thanks Dee for pointing out the bottles of Powerade are indeed available at the BC Marketplace.

Also regarding Sprite Zero, I recall it only being regular Sprite. But there was Coke Zero in the BC Marketplace. Coke Zero was not available at Hurricane Hannah's, however, that may have changed with the recent renovations and new refill station. I hope so! Coke Zero = Diet Coke =

Getting closer to our YC visit and I am so looking forward to it. My grandson, who lives in CA wants a Disneyland trip for his 12th birthday in June. My husband and I always go visit for birthdays, so we are making my first trip to Disneyland!!!

Made reservations for 2 rooms with my cast discount at the Disneyland hotel and I am so excited. Two Disney trips within a month.

That sounds like a Perfect Month to me

Hi Lynette You guys are going to LOVE love love the Beach Club! Being able to walk to Epcot, or even just walk down to the Boardwalk, is so fun! It's a totally different experience than staying at AKL. My DH loves that area so much, all the food, the action, things to do, places to go, I can't even get him back to AKL.
