Be Our Guest List

Please take a moment to look over the Be Our Guest list to see if your information is listed correctly. If we just know the month you are going, you will be at the top of that month's list with no specific dates, but feel free to post if you want me to update the exact days of your trip.

Post 15: Be Our Guest list

We are about 20 pages from needing a new thread, so I will definitely be starting one sometime this week.

If anyone has any comments about how to make the first couple of pages more "user-friendly" please let me know by posting here or sending an email to beachclubdee at yahoo dot com.

Not that it matters to anyone but me, but I think I will strip off the links to photos, videos and trip reports into a separate post, on Page 2.

And, by the way, one week from right now, I will be boarding a Southwest flight to Orlando.

Fantasmic Dinner Package

Hello all. We were at Beach Club from June 10 to June 17. We did the Fantasmic Dinner package. We ate at Hollywood Brown Derby (party of 5, big dinner check). We received our green ticket for Fantasmic seating. The waiter told us to get in line around 8:15 and stay to right where there was a special entrance for our seating. We asked one of the CM's and she told us to wait in line with everyone else. It was so crowded and they waited to let people in (I guess due to some lightening)

Long story short... we never got to see the show. We couldn't get through the line. There were so many people and the CM told us we had to wait with everyone else. I was in near tears taking the boat back to Beach Club watching the fireworks from the show as it began. I let the Beach Club concierge know and they comped our dinner for the night (very nice of them to do so as it was extremely expensive). Beach Club staff were amazing that week!!! Guest Relations at Hollywood, didn't do anything... just wrote my comments down.

I'm not sure what the procedure is for getting to the reserved seats. We asked the CM twice and got the same answer. so.... I still haven't seen Fantasmic. Boo Hoo.

If there is anyone checking in tomorrow at YC/BC/BCV that would like our leftover "stuff" (ESP BCV) we are trying to slim down our suitcase. PM me your name and what you would like and I will check it at Bell Services for you.

For sure we have the following. Possibly some other stuff as we pack tonight.

- 2 heavy duty pool noodles
- Dish Soap
- Clorox Wipes
- Coffee filters
-possibly the end of a can of spray sunscreen
-used ziplock baggies (we put our cameras in them to go to the parks)
- Half a box of plastic utensils
- 1/2 can of sugar

Amazing Beach Club Staff

I wanted to post a thank you to the amazing Beach Club staff. We were at the pool (week of June 10th) and ordered lunch from Hurricane Hannah's. My daughter ate chicken fingers and watermelon. I'm not sure where it came from but her face broke out in big red bumps (almost looked like welts). She was having some weird allergic reaction. Within minutes we had at least 3 to 4 Beach Club staff from pool area plus a food and beverage manager talking to us. (I think the waitress asked them to come by) They gave us options for treatment and checked my daughter out. It was so comforting and amazing customer service.

Also, we had two different packages booked for our week and we had to check out and check back in. The transition was flawless. New hotel room keys were left under our door the night before and we were able to stay in the same room.

Thanks Beach Club

Has anyone been able to find out what time the boats begin operating? I am wanting to attempt EMH mornings for DHS, but I don't know if the boats start up early enough to try it.

DH and DD might strangle me in my sleep if I mention walking to DHS!!

That is great to hear (much better than the Fantasmic situation- that really stinks)

How is your daughter doing? Any idea what triggered the reaction?

If you don't mind taking the time to email guest relations to let them know, or better still write to the General Manager of the Beach Club to let her know how pleased you were. They really do pay attention to the feedback and it helps the CMs when compliments are sent about them:


email wdw.guest.communications@disneyworld.com

When you write or email, please include your name, address, phone number and email address.

If it is a comment specific to the Yacht & Beach Club, you can write to the General Manager of the resort (perhaps copy Guest Communications as well):

Mim Flynn, General Manager
Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts
1800 EPCOT Resort Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830

45-60 minutes before the park opens (that means an hour before EMH).

Hi. Thanks for bumping. I've been looking on the restaurant board & found recent threads but one was regarding seating for the mobility challenged & the other was a recently posted comment but from their March trip. I thought I'd mention it here because everyone is always so helpful & seems to have frequent trips to BC/YC. I'm having the "oh my gosh, let me change my ADRs just before our trip" syndrome. With all that delicious looking food at the new Hurricane Hanna's bar menu, maybe I'll just eat there for two weeks! LOLOL!

I'm curious, too!

I have not had much luck finding out accurate information about when various forms of transportation start at any of the resorts. There are allegedly "breakfast buses" that will allow you to get to pre-opening breakfast reservations, but like Bigfoot, I have no actual proof that they really exist.

I think my only early HS boat experience was on our last trip. We made it to the boat dock at 7:30 and just missed one boat. The next one came around 7:40 and we made it to HS just a little bit after 8.

We will be checking out the early boat ourselves on Saturday July 20. Is that the same day you will be going to HS early or will it be later in your stay?

Yay!



Looking forward to your next trip report. With pictures! (I added that so when your family complains you can tell them your BC fans need you to take pictures.)

I did the fantastic package in 2011. We arrived 25 ish min before the show. There was an entrance on the right side with seats sectioned off. It was a pretty long walk I think to get in the side... Then we exited the same side and beat many of the crowds to the buses. It would not make sense for them to change this, but who knows...
