Two things relating to food-

First, swan/dolphin "walkup" questions - we have done walkup for breakfast and dinner for nearly every restaurant at swan/dolphin at some point or another. The only exception is character bfast at garden grill (just never tried, it may be fine). Your question was specifically bfast, most of which is at dolphin- we have never done anything other than walkup both for picabu (which is counter service anyway) and for the "fancier" bfast buffet at dolphin right next to picabu (forgetting name right now)..

For diiner on arrival-sat, may 11- some variation of sampling the "world" at epcot country pavilions and the special food kiosks for flower/garden- our son is 3, so will be relatively early, nopefully not too rowdy of crowd yet

Glad you have ended up back at the Yacht & Beach Club!

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

Thank you! Got a return email today from IPO regarding dining reservations. All changes were made just as I asked. Sigh....so nice.

Question about the lazy river...can children wear swim arms or use noodles or rings? I guess adults for that matter, too. Can adults use rings or floats?

Please post if anyone gets FD on garden or standard view! Good luck all!
Does this happen a lot? We are staying in a Garden View (BC) the week after Thanksgiving and was hoping and praying for a discount of some sort.

Thank you magicalmoments4! My sunken treasure recipe was waiting for me when I got home today. Just the thing to put a little pep in my step after an exhausting Derby weekend in Kentucky

Yes. You just about have to use floats or noodles. Lazy river is quite deep in some sections.

The discount does have to be available in the category you would like to book. Discounts are getting more restrictive lately. I remember when free dining was available for a couple months and now it looks like it is closer to three weeks.
In the past they have let you add a discount if you have already booked a category that becomes available at the new rate.

Has anyone stayed at BC for Star Wars Weekends? My son and I are going to SWW on Friday May 31, and will be staying at the BC.

Park opening that day is 8am. Since I know the park usually opens prior to 8am for SWW, I am sure the boats will not be running from the resorts as early as I need them to be. I am guessing my only option might be to walk.

We have no desire for any celebrity autographs, but my son does want to do JTA. I figure we want to be in line at the turnstiles between 6:30 and 7.

4 days to go!!!


Quick question regarding coffee: I'm assuming its still the Nescafé stuff at the Marketplace. If so, I may bring my own coffee to make in the room. All I need to bring is my coffee right? Filters will be there?

If you are staying at the BCV'S then you will have a coffee maker that takes a 12 cup basket filter. I always bring my own coffee and filters when staying there.. Coffee is too important and not having filters would be unacceptable.

If you are at the BC then the coffee maker takes single cup coffee pods.

Unfortunately they are not the Keurig style. Take a look at post #14 on the first page of this thread and you can see a picture of the machine and the pods.

Coffee Talk

Lots of questions about the types of coffee makers in the rooms at the BC/YC and BCV. Understandably, there is a lot of confusion, because there are 3 different styles of coffee makers depending on what type of room you are staying in.

This really is important stuff! As those of you who have followed this board for a long time know (and are probably sick of hearing), my very first post to this board was "What kind of coffee makers are in the rooms at the Beach Club" I actually brought my own coffee maker when we stayed at All Star Music in 2008.

Here is the info from the "Other Useful Info" post on Page 1. As far as I know, this info is current and correct, but if anyone has experienced anything different, please let me know.


What kind of coffeemakers are in the resort rooms?

As of October 2011, the drip coffee makers in the BC and YC resort rooms were replaced.

The regular resort rooms and club level rooms (including Deluxe Rooms) now have the Cuisinart Double Pod Machines:



Thanks for the photos Rorey, Cinderumbrella and MickeyT!

Here is what I believe are in the rooms currently. Anyone who has been there more recently, please correct this info if it is wrong:

All regular (non-club level) rooms: Cuisinart Pods

All standard club level rooms, all views (standard meaning non-suite), including Deluxe Club Level Rooms: Cuisinart Pods

Suites (1 BR, 2 BR, VP, Presidential Suites): Keurig K-cup

Beach Club Villas- Mr. Coffee-type makers (4 cup for studio, 10 cup for 1BR, 2BR)

I think this applies to both BC and YC- again, let me know if I am wrong!


I don't "do" Nescrape! Is there anyplace at the resort where I can get a REAL cup of coffee???

REAL COFFEE ALERT!!!

Ale and Compass is located just off the Yacht Club Lobby.

In the morning, breakfast items are available like a DECENT cup of coffee and tea, pastries, an assortment of cereal and fruit. This location also serves as a refill station for your refillable mug until 11 or noon.

Thanks, MickeyT and Nicki in NJ
