Thanks Teena! David is always looking at the photo album from last August and remembers playing with "Baby Lily" at the pool! He's smitten!

Has anyone forgotten the PIN they picked when they did online check in? If so how did they handle it when you arrived and picked up your packet?

Wow, it takes me so long every day to catch up on this thread - of course I enjoy every minute of it
Just wanted to say thank you to Dee for answering my question regarding my room dilemma (just love it when decisions are effectively taken from me - life becomes so much easier); thank you to CT_Disney for the YC CL review and looking forward to reading more!; and congratulations to KerriL for your exciting new arrival!!! I think if there were celebration competitions you would win hands down.
It's a beautiful day in NJ today - I hope everyone's day looks as nice.
(96 days!!!)

I just booked two nights at the Yacht Club for this weekend. We've never stayed at the Yacht Club. My daughter picked this resort to celebrate her 18th birthday She picked the resort so we could hang out at SAB, but I think Mother Nature has different plans for us! I know we'll still have a fun time!

I haven't been around here much, so I'm trying to do a little research on this thread before we check-in on Friday. I use to spend months planning trips to WDW, so it's a little strange going into something a bit clueless. Being in Orlando now takes a lot of pressure off planning. We're totally winging this whole weekend trip and we're sleeping in which will be a first for us. Completely different trip than when they were younger

Happy birthday to your daughter, mirlow. I'm sure it will be a really fun weekend. Very fun to be trying a new resort

Sometimes winging it makes for the best time!

Hello all you YC/BC lovers! I should probably start by telling you all that I've never stayed at YC/BC and it's been 8 years since I've been to WDW! My family and I are currently planning a trip for December 2014. We'll be cruising on the Fantasy the week of Christmas and touring WDW the week prior.

We are starting to toss around ideas on which resort we'd like to stay at. DH and I have previously stayed at Poly, GF, WL and AKL. We are a family of 5 with three DDs who will be 12, 9 and 7 on this trip. Only the 12 and 9 year old have been to WDW before but neither remember anything (the 9 year old was just an infant on our last trip). I'm hoping I'll be able to sway my family to staying at YC/BC for this trip since I've always wanted to. I'm just not sure if I will be able to pry them away from a MK area resort. Help me make my case!

Since SAB is a big draw to staying at YC/BC and my girls would not want to pass it up if we stayed there, what can you tell me about swimming there in December? We are from the Seattle area, so we're not opposed to swimming when it's in the mid 60's as long as the sun is shining.

And what can you tell me about the Christmas season at YC/BC?

December at WDW. Can be in the 40's (yep - a high of 40) and can be in the high 80's. You need to pack for every kind of temp.

Walking to Epcot and seeing all the holiday decorations and the Candlelight Processional is magical!!!!!

The resorts around the lake have great holiday decorations too. Tell the kids you are a boat ride away from Hollywood Studios. It might help.

Thank you!

Since we're from the Pacific NW, we're used to dressing in layers and being prepared for everything!

It was our 1st CL stay and the whole thing really impressed us. With this trip we had the kids with us so we got the "kid perspective" on CL. So here goes...

3. We found the wait staff in the lounge to be professional and kind, but not overly bubbly and welcoming. Suited us just fine.

6. Oreo bon bons served one night. Bacon-wrapped scallops served two nights...Yay!!

8. Fresh brewed coffee was only served in the am. The rest of the day you had to use the Nescafe machine. Not my favorite...luckily we had brought Starbucks Vias along with us.

13.Make sure you ask for water bottles before heading out to the parks or pool. They are not out...but if you ask for them, they will give them to you any time of day.

14. Here's a big one....beer is only served during evening appetizers, but they will bring you beer any time during the day if you ask for it. (My DH made VERY good use of this tip). One day there was a guy sitting in the lounge during the afternoon snacks and we heard him oversay, "I wish they had the beer out now." My husband went over to him and gave him this very useful tip, at which point the guy looked like he wanted to kiss my husband.

The best part about CL in our opinion is the convenience of breakfast. To get a nice healthy start to your day is great.

Our favorite foods all week were the Oreo Bon Bons, Bacon-Wrapped Scallops, Chocolate Chip Muffins, and the Cinnamon Rolls!

Any questions...just ask....

Next up in our trip report.. Our Thoughts on the YC Resort ...(Spolier Alert: It's All Good!)

Left my favorite tips in there!! Can't thank you enough for this full review of YC CL! With less than 3 weeks to go for our first CL stay, this was all very helpful, especially tip #8!! REAL COFFEE? paired with the chocolate chip muffin or cinnamon roll, YUM!
And I am very happy that oreo bon bons will be served, we were very sad to see them go from our favorite disney restaurant. As long as we get our bon bon fix, we should be good Thanks again, CT Disney!

Luv TInk, December is a wonderful time to be at the YC. Its lobby and the BC lobby are beautifully decorated. One of my favorite memories is the story teller reading the Polar Express in the YC lobby and afterwards the children were given a jingle bell on a red cord.

sure

Natebenma-

If you ever think that stuff I post here would be helpful to other people, you're always welcome to put it on the first page. I love BCV, and if I can help someone else have a better trip to YC/BC/BCV, I'm happy to do so.

I did send you an e-mail with the BC information we discussed.

Also - The first time I saw your Dis name, I misread it as NateBenna. I thought "Benna" must be a name like "Brenna." So that's how I always think of you! It took me awhile to catch on.
