Three weeks ago, I had to book a separate reservation for a stay tonight, in a regular room downstairs (we have been BC GV CL). So last day room change, no big deal right? Yesterday I went to CL CM desk and organized the move, arranging for bell services to hold all luggage in lock up overnight and we'd just live out of suitcases for 20hrs, new keys, new room to sleep, no big deal.

So this morning I woke prepared to hustle, when I notice paperwork and a small key envelope had been slipped under the door overnight. I opened the envelope, and it was the new keys, with the new date, "Room Only", GOLD. (????) I scanned all the other paperwork, they had closed out the package reservation as expected, and opened the new reservation. Now I was suppose to go down and check-in and pick up the new (periwinkle) room keys before 11. So I quickly get dressed, bring everything with me to the desk and cautiously ask what I need to do to "check-in" under the new reservation. They smiled and informed me a little pixie dust came my way and we are staying in our room for the extra night rather than moving downstairs for the night. Yay!!!

I had bought little maple candies made locally at home for the CL CM's, I also bought a much smaller box for Mousekeeping on the last day,...and you wouldn't believe the towel animal I returned to!! I sent Dee the picture via email, I did put a small frame around it to get rid of the glare, but the presentation was amazing and this Mousekeeper gets the prize for most awesome towel animal ever. We've had some odd ones, an elephant looking one, two baby ducks, a swinging gorilla (from one of the wooden hangers). This was the kissing love swans you'd see in the honeymoon suites. What a great last day.....!!

That is fantastic that you got to stay in the room! I'm sure it is making your last day so much better!

I travel carry-on so if TSA searches your bag, they also keep your undies contained and not flashed to everyone around I love them! I bought them on ebags, but I have seen them in the AAA store and even another brand in Target.
Hope that helps!
These are exactly what I have I also purchased mine from ebags.

I did a search in the restaurant subforum of the Cape May menu rotation- this is what I found, per TheRustyScupper:

The new rotation for the "fried food" daily specials section is:
. . . Sunday & Wednesday - fried shrimp
. . . Monday & Thursday - fried clam strips
. . . Tuesday & Friday - fried calamari
. . . Saturday, only - fried chef's choice (a fried seafood, not a fried chef)

My boys love the crab legs, that is the main reason we are going.

Just wanted to pop in to say we are back from our trip, and CL and the Beach CLub were amazing!! We loved the beds, the pool, the smell, the location, the pool, the location, the lounge, everything. I looked for you today Teena, they said you had the day off. Boo.

Anyway, thanks for the tips everyone! We used them all...from the secret door to IG, to using the "lower" path walking to Epcot. All great, and helped make our trip awesome!

Can't wait for September

We're heading for our 3rd stay at BC September 14. Hopefully, our whole family will be going which includes me, DH, DD and another DD with her DH. Those last 2 on the list are both military so who knows what will happen by September. However, if they can't go, we're still going. Once I said we were going to DW and staying at the BC there could be no cancelling.

Thank you so much for this info! Anyone able to share their recent experiences with either the clam strips or fried shrimp. We currently have a Monday res and it would take a great deal of rearranging, but if the shrimp are worth it, I might try. My kids love the crab legs, but they also love fried shrimp...

I have been following this thread but I wanted to check in. I am going to a conference at BC the first week of December, and we added on a few days to make a whole week out of it. We have never stayed at BC before and really looking forward to it!

Hi. Just wondering what conference as we are staying at the beach club that week and are wondering if the convention is possibly why many rooms were sold out.

That sounds great! Our next trip will be our first visit for longer than a week, we are staying 11 nights and doing a split stay. I think I will get these packing cubes to try to keep DD and myself organized.

If you have the Disney store vouchers can you use those to access the AP site? They have a box for some type of voucher, but I heard that if you buy online there is no site access. :confused2
