It is awesome to be able to sit on your balcony and see that. I can't wait to see it lit up at night.

Club level staff members are amazing. They are all very personable and friendly. Lounge is on the small side, I agree, but we did get a table this morning. Cast members were cleaning tables and replenishing very quickly.

SAB is closed now...lightning in the area. We are headed to MK!
So glad you are enjoying. Lounge is small but won't be for long. It's doubling in size next year!!

We're right behind you! Our flight leaves at 8:00 tomorrow morning and should land around 10:30. We always have lunch at Beaches and Cream the first day then we walk over to EPCOT to (hopefully) get a fast pass for later that night after our dinner at Tutto Italia. Walking to EPCOT is just the best feeling.

Couchy - see you real soon!

Teena - we'll see you Sunday. We have a 8:05 reservation at Crystal Palace and will probably be back at BC early afternoon - can't wait to go to SAB!

Lounge is doubling in size? Fabulous!

Hello everyone! Well we have been back for almost two weeks now. I've gotten past four of the five of us being sick, Uncle having a heart attack, a graduation party, catching up with work and oh yeah - FINALLY becoming DVC owners!!!!! So will this be my only trip to the BC - heck no. But for now we are planning on AKL for 2014. Since we are getting our first set of points as of February 2013 we will have double the points for our next trip in June of 2014, so we are going to take my husband's cousin and her three kids with us.

Anyway, I have FINALLY downloaded photos from the trip and here are some specific ones to the Y&BC -

The lobby was gorgeous and I loved being greeted by the CMs with their iPads looking up my information immediately. Check-in was very smooth and the lobby was beautiful:



We arrived two hours late due to flight delays so by the time we arrived at the BC our room 2621 was ready:


I requested close to transportation and a full balcony. Our requests were met (and I did online check-in). My sister had a SV and ended up getting upgraded to a GV (sorry I didn't get pictures of her room but it overlooked the lake side entrance to the BC and was just a few rooms down from our room). We were very close the lobby, Marketplace, SAB and the Solarium.

Here was our view:



Zoomed in:


After getting settled in Tropical Storm Andrea was pretty much done and so were we. We headed down to SAB for a bite to eat at HHs. I of course got one of these:


(My daughter would kill me for this picture, but photbucket won't let me crop her out - meant to be.)

All of the bartenders that I asked for one of these knew how to make it, but some of them disagreed on how to make the Sunken Treasure. I did not get in the middle of the arguments.

Here are some other pictures of the resort:

















This was a private party one evening. It was Pirates of the Caribbean themed and this was the view of the party and fireworks from the party from our room:







We ate one night at the Yachtsman Steakhouse (OMG!!!), if I could get past the price this would be our favorite new restaurant. Here are some photos of the YC lobby:



My kids looking for a Hidden Mickey:





Thanks everyone for all of your help! We really enjoyed our stay and met some very nice people! We are excited to start our adventure of being DVC members!!!!

Ok... so the next trip is just 11 days away and I am still playing with dinning reservations.... I just really do not want to have dinner at Hollywood Brown Derby....I know there are a lot of people on here who love that place, but I just really don't like anything on the menu! The friend (who has been to Disney once) I am going with (who knows nothing about dinning there) decided she wanted to eat there based on the name I think . So tonight I decided that I really do not want to eat there, so I changed it to Coral Reef. I have two Disney login names (thanks DVC) so I kept the Hollywood Brown Derby reservation just incase when I see her this weekend she REALLY REALLY wants to eat there after I show her the menu and I made the new reservation for Coral Reef under my DVC login (working the system ) I will cancel one of them Sunday night when I get home from shopping with her! I've made so many life changes that nothing fits so I need to shop (I hate shopping)!!

Anywho...

Have a safe flight Robyn! See you around SAB!

No, sorry, our view was a LV. Thanks. We are so excited!!! We are also looking forward to getting my nieces and nephew there for their first ever trip. We are hopefully surprising them next weekend for their birthday!

Thanks Nanette! Hope we can meet up!

Well we are 11 hours away from our flight and not only is DH not packed yet - he's not even home from work! He ran home to mow the lawn and had to go back. He is still bringing his laptop with us but hopefully not too many client issues!

I'm done except for waiting for one more load of laundry (And DH!). DME tags are on the luggage and I can't wait to go!

Teena - ds' carry on had the least amount of things in it so he gets to carry all the tastycakes (hope they make it!)

May someone who is going there in the next few days, please do me a favor and look at the dinner menu for 50s Prime Time Cafe and confirm they still have the chicken pot pie for dinner. All ears has it listed but their menu is a bit old. Another website which has a more recent update doesn't show it for dinner. Thank you so much.

SAB is closed now...lightning in the area. We are headed to MK!
Sounds great! I love looking out our patio and seeing Epcot and walking through the international gateway
