We received a plate of the most delicious chocolate-dipped strawberries I've ever tasted! Everyone is so friendly, and customer service is phenomenal!

So disappointed in the weather, but that's beyond anyone's control. We booked here mainly for SAB, and I don't know if we'll be able to swim at all before we check out on Saturday. Tomorrow was supposed to be our pool day. Hoping for a sudden change in the weather forecast!
Enjoy!! We just got back from YC on Monday and had a fabulous stay!

Hello again!!! I responded to your SAB question earlier, but then when you mentioned Alaska last summer, the lightbulb went off! I think you on the August 27 Wonder to Alaska with us and in our fish extender exchange!!!!! Our boys were in the pool at the end of the Tracy Arm day. After a day of glacier watching, they jumped in while we continued to enjoy the amazing scenery. Actually, I think they were in the pool daily, as it was chilly but wonderfully sunny for nearly all of the cruise. OK - I'll stop talking about the off topic cruise, but it's tough - I think it was one of my favorite vacations of all time!

I can't bring myself to call YC the "dark side" because the true dark side is the "theme park which shall not be named," as Dee would say! I think we should rename YC the friendly sister resort!

Speaking of sab, has anyone confirmed they still sell noodles (I assume they must b/c may pool activities includes noodle races, whatever that is). Also, do they sell the "floating dumbell buoys", or just noodles? Our guy really likes to be "self-sufficient" in water (with me hovering right there), and the dumbells give a bit more support than noodles. We also have a life preserver, but sometimes those annoy him. We are so looking forward to our trip in 9 days (now only 8.5 b/c early flight Saturday may 11)!

There were noodles for sale in the Marketplace as of this week. (We got home Monday)

I'm not sure about the "dumbell buoys"

Couple of quick questions...
For SAB, do you rent the inner tubes for the lazy river? Any idea how much and how long you get them for?
Can I bring a swim floatie tube for the baby?

We are staying club level (first time...nervous I'll "think" it's worth it, and nervous I won't be able to live without it later!)...our room is SV:
What is the most likely thing I'll see out the window?
Will I get a full balcony?
Since we have 5+ (me, dh, dd10, dd2 ds 2, and 5 month old), I was told we'd have two queens and the day bed. How crowded will it be with the pack and play in the room?

We are driving down and plan to arrive noon to 1ish, depending on how many times we have to stop to feed the baby. Planning on having the swimsuits ready to grab to enjoy the pool while we wait on our room.

Any advice for staying club? Lots of packing to do! Very excited!
We just got back from the YC yesterday. The inner tubes were free while we were there. The little store was closed, so all the tubes were stacked up for guests to use. There were also a few noodles floating around. The lifeguards let guests use noodles in any of the pools. The life vests were also on a rack for guests.

And a FYI. We actually leave a couple days earlier than the ticker says. We added the 2 DL days after I made my ticker and I wasn't going to start over with it......



We were there....Were these two yours?







Hey Teena.....Do you know if this PIN changes each trip (ie. pick a new one) or do you always keep it? Just trying to figure this RFID stuff out.
I don't know. That's a good question. I'll try to find out on Sunday when I go back to work.
