Thanks so much !!!
Why, thank you!

This is the main thread that I am involved with.

The other ones I have started for The Marketplace or View Thread for the Yacht & Beach Club Rooms or the Deluxe Room threads are all connected to the Yacht & Beach Club, and they are all linked in various places on page 1. They are mostly placeholders for information and pictures, but are not "active" threads with much discussion.


Beach Club Marketplace Photo and Information Thread

Beach Club Marketplace Photo and Information Thread updated October 2012

Here is a link to over 20 photos taken by Cinderumbrella in June 2011:
Fittings and Fairings

Beach Club Deluxe, Suites, VP and Presidential Rooms

Yacht Club Deluxe, Suites, Vice Presidential and Presidential Rooms


I started up two View Threads in the Resort Photo Subforum:

Beach Club Room Views

Yacht Club Room Views


Here are a few excellent threads about SAB and the Jib Slide:


SAB Photos, Pixarmom August 2011 and January 2013

More SAB pictures, by Pixeldust October 2012


How do I get from the Jib Slide exit to the entrance of the slide? by pixarmom




I do have some pictures in the All Star Movies picture thread from my stay in June on my son's class trip.

The little devil on my shoulder has not won out and I have not become overly involved in any of the Universal Resort threads (we stayed at Portofino and are trying out the Hard Rock in July).

I write fairly detailed trip reports, which are linked in my signature.

"Wicked Awesome or Epic Fail" details the class trip in June 2012 (All Star Movies)

Welcome Foolish Muggles" is about our July 2011 trip to Universal/IoA/Sea World with a one day visit to Magic Kingdom. Lots of great tips for people planning a trip to the Dark Side, if I do say so myself! I have also included reports of trips to Puerto Rico, Atlantis and now Mexico at the end of that report.

My last true Disney family trip report was "Third Annual we are NEVER going to Disney in the summer again" - tounge in cheek covering our 2009/2010 trips (Beach Club stays)


That should be enough to keep you busy for a little bit!!!

Overbooking at BC?

Have been reading about overbooking at BC. Is this something that happens often?? We have 3 rooms booked from 4/11 through 4/17 and our family enjoy being together. Actually we have requested connecting room for the 2 that have the grandkids. Ours is separate and after a busy day we like that. May I hope with some certainty that none of our rooms will be bumped to another hotel? I do so want to be polite if this happens but you know how that would go.

Thanks

This year I hope of going to DW will have to be in August, yes its hot and humid but with DD22 and her BF college/co-op schedule this is our only hope. Anyway just went and tried to price a Garden View at BC and was shocked they do not have any available! Is this normal for the BC during this time of years? More info is they don't have any standard rooms available either and the same for YC, no standard or garden.

Yep, we went to the Poly once during Spring Break and the pool was insane. Hoping to avoid that level of madness. Maybe we'll see you at SAB.
Probably! We love our resort/pool time!

Does it ever happen, yes. Does it happen often, no. 99% of the time a guest would get moved is if the resort is at capacity and there's a maintenance issue that takes a block of rooms out of service.

Where have you been reading this?

I'll put you on the Be Our Guest list for next week. Hope you have a fantastic trip!


Yes, you can ship items to the Yacht Club. Here is the info from Page 1 of this thread (Other Useful Info):

Can I ship a package to Beach Club or Yacht Club for my stay?

If you ship a package to the resort, Mail by United States Postal Service, not anything else!!! If you mail other than USPS, your items will be shipped to the convention center and the shipping department will charge the recipient a handling charge, based on the weight of your package.

Disney's Beach Club Resort (or Disney's Beach Club Villas)
1800 Epcot Resort Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830
Please give to Guest, (name on reservation)
Check-in date 9/1/10 (for example)

or

Disney's Yacht Club Resort
1700 Epcot Resort Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830
Please give to Guest, (name on reservation)

It's at 9:30 am, and you need to be at the marina by 9:15. It looks like fun! I signed my kids up for it, too.

Here's what my reservation confirmation says:

9:30 AM
Albatross Cruise
Bayside Marina at Disney's Yacht Club Resort
Party of: 2
Parent or Guardian must sign a waiver for child's participation. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to excursion. Please cancel at least 24 hours prior in order to avoid a penalty of the full amount of the cruise. This is a children only event. Available to children 4 - 10 years of age. All children must be fully potty trained. The cruise may be canceled due to inclement weather.

It's in my itinerary now through IPO, but when I scheduled it I called the Yacht Club directly. It was easy. Then they sent me the confirmation email with the above information (with date & booking #).
