'Ohana - dinner
Cape May Cafe - dinner
Biergarten - lunch
Via Napoli - dinner
Coral Reef - lunch
Sci-Fi - dinner
50'S Primetime - lunch
Captain's Grille - breakfast
The Plaza - lunch

Now I just have to wait for September to get here so I can begin my Beach Club vacation!
Sounds like some good ADRs. What a pain it is to try and get the Disney site to cooperate. Glad you got what you wanted though.

I think I've decided not to vacation with anyone but the four of us. I've talked about it with different family that have said "wow we should trip together next time!", but after a little talking to them, and reading TR's here, I am starting to think vacationing at WDW with family could rank up there with borrowing money from family on the "quick ways to implode a family"!! Lol. My DH and kids know the drill, but I don't know that anyone else would appreciate my neurosis!! Lol!!

Lol! I think the trick with vacay for extended family is to set the ground rules, discuss how you tour and give them the option of joining you or doing their own thing, and meeting up for meals, and 1 or 2 attractions, and not being tied to the hip. The beauty of staying on property is that if they want to sleep in, they can, and just catch the park bus whenever.

Hi everyone! Have been trying to get through all the posts on the last installment of this thread and now found this new one. Also been lurking on the CL thread as well.

We are currently booked in BC CL LV August 17-25. It is myself, DH, DS (13) and DD (12). What is our chances of getting a daybed and full balcony in this category? Would we have a better chance of at least the full balcony at Yacht Club? Is there much difference between the two club levels?

TIA for any help you can offer! We stayed 2 years ago at BCV and absolutely loved it and SAB. The whole area has some of the best restaurants and feels much more relaxing than some of the other areas. Just wondering if we should try something new (ie YC)!

You have a better chance of getting a full balcony LV CL than a daybed.
There aren't many rooms with a daybed - that is why they won't even allow families of 5 to book LV CL.

Dee or Teena can probably give you a count of how many LV CL rooms have full balconies, but if I remember correctly it's almost all of them.

We had a very successful vacation with extended family last year. It was so much fun, we're doing it all over again. For that portion of the trip, we stayed offsite, spread out through several condos, so we all had plenty of space and privacy. We made sure we had a full day at the resort to relax, enjoy the pool, and eat together. We were all on the same page as far as getting up and getting to the parks fairly early. We would tour together for a few hours, then split up when everyone wanted to enjoy different attractions. After a few days in the parks, we split up to do different activities, visit different parks, beaches, or other parts of the state. We'd get together at night to go out to dinner or cook in the condo. My immediate family (DH, DD, and myself) also added on a few days onsite to enjoy some time together. Last year it was the Poly, this year it will be YC. That way we still have time for just the three of us to vacation together.
