Glad to help! I think that I read on the dessert party thread that only the first week and a half of July opened up today so if you really need the 13th it might be available soon.

Glad to help! I think I saw on the dessert thread that only the first week and a half of July was available to book right now so if you really want the 13th it should open up soon.

Question: Does anyone have teens and what have the teens thought of Yacht Club?

I showed by 16 year old DD a video of YC from youtube and it unfortunately showed an older woman being pushed in a wheelchair. Now my DD is convinced YC is like a nursing home and is not happy with the resort choice. She said it should be fine as long as she doesn't have to feed any old people tapioca pudding. She is kind of making me regret changing, but not enough to change my plans.

~Another one that agrees with all the PPs about BC!
I have taken all my kids/nieces to the BC/YC and they have ALL LOVED IT!
Same niece that I'm taking for her HS Grad trip, I took last year to BC, she spent alot of time at SAB talking to other kids HER AGE! I met their parents and we all went to the BW at night. She loved making more friends. This year, she's meeting up with 2 of them from last year, also HS graduates!

Just tell her those pictures are trying to show people there's something for everyone.

That's how our reservations for the Dessert party on Mothers Day went. DH was sure that he wouldn't get an ADR (his first try at "surprising me"). But he contacted IPO. And when the time came they contacted him with a date/time. Done! He was so proud, lol.

Hi just wondering if anyone knows if the YC club lounge is still open 24 hrs and if so what is on offer after 10pm? Also I know some of you arranged in-room celebrations/gifts through the IPO-would you mind telling me how you do this? I know about the Disney florist but I was thinking more along the lines of things on sale at hotel shop plus maybe game card for arcade or something?? Hoping to celebrate 25th anniversary at Yacht Club (club level) but would do something wee for kids too as they are just brilliant (not that I'm biased ).
Thanks for any help

I know you've already gotten a lot of great reassurance -- but just another mom of a teen (boy, 15) reporting that it is an IDEAL resort for teens! DS refuses to even consider staying elsewhere. The resort itself gives teens the opportunity to be reasonably independent (family can be at the pool, but it's so big that he can enjoy himself without feeling constrained by us), being able to walk to Epcot is fantastic, etc. Just a great place to stay!

Ah bleeps.....A sign I am getting old and my two year old bifocals may need adjusting. I was trying to figure out what kind of fan hat you had on in your photo.....

We just got back this week.

The lounge is open 24 hours, but after 10 pm, they only leave sodas in the fridge and the food items that were available during the day (trail mix, yogurt covered pretzels, and Swedish fish). There are also bottles of water out (the big glass variety of Evian and Perrier)....but they don't leave any ice....
So, if you want warm water....you're in luck!!

Oh, and we did not do an in-room celebration, but we had it noted on our reservation that we were celebrating our DD9's birthday and they had a bunch of balloons waiting for her along with a card signed by all of the princesses and then one night Mickey and Minnie left her a voicemail. The pixie dust was flying!!!

Good to know about the birthday!! DD is the day we arrive and DH is the 16th, DS the 19th. I was hoping they'd at least say happy birthday!!!!

Good news (hopefully) for us bus riders. Sounds like they are hearing the feedback about all AK buses going through BB!

@ MickeyT-

I'll be watching to see how quickly Jiminy moves towards Mickey to give him a hug on your DL ticker!!!

Just in case you haven't noticed, Hedwig is halfway to Hogwarts and I am just about a couple of months from home!!!
