We just ate there last Wed. Yes, they had fried shrimp but I was very disappointed. They were very tiny shrimp (size of a nickle maybe) with a pale, soggy breading. The cold marinated shrimp in the salad area were much bigger & delicious tho. I don't eat crab legs so I don't know how they were, but they did look to be pretty big, and they were on 2 different sides of the buffet, so there were plenty available.

We ate at Fulton's one night & I had the seafood combo entree. There were 2 large cod fillets, 4 HUGE shrimp & 4 huge scallpos (all fried). This was excellent! The fried shrimp were amazing! I don't remember if they had just a fried shrimp entree, but if I was going anywhere for fried seafood, it would be Fulton's. I had the lobster bisque first, so I could only eat 1/2 the entree--if I go back again I'll skip that & just enjoy all the entree!

We are at the airport waiting for our flight home. We really loved the Yacht Club and had a wonderful time. We did not use the lounge very much at all. If we got anything we just brought it back to the room. The offerings were very similar to the Boardwalk. The one thing I really liked was being able to get small bottles of water. This worked for when we went to the pool. I don't know why all club levels don't offer these.

We sat at SAB a couple of days, but also enjoyed the quiet pool. We only went to Epcot and the MK 3 out of the 7 days we were there. This trip was a do practically nothing trip and we loved it.

Jim had 3 lobster rolls from the BW bakery and thought they were great. We also ate at Yachtsman Steakhouse, Jim's favorite, and it was excellent. Other places we ate we're, Via Napoli, excellent, Fulton's, sooooo good, Coral Reef, very good, and Cape May, won't go back.

We may try to book a quick trip in October, but otherwise we will be at the Beach Club December 3rd to the 10th. Still trying to decide if we should book a 2 bedroom suite or just keep the 4 rooms we have. We could put my son and his family in the suite with us and leave my 2 daughters in the rooms booked. This way we will have more space for family time.
Getting ready to board so I will sign off! Everyone that have trips coming enjoy.

I'll trade you one mid-life crisis for a later-in-life crisis. Our DS will be 19 next week and is graduating from high school a few days later. That's not too bad, but my daughter is turning 37 next week and my granddaughter just turned 6!

Headed to WDW in 3 weeks and hope that helps. Staying at OKW this trip - 2 bdrm on rented points - please, I'm not a traitor - we'll be back at the YC in August, after we drop off DS at college in Melbourne (Florida Tech).

I've been lurking on this thread for the past few days, hoping I would be able to join in, staying at the BC this summer and we just made our reservations this week! So excited!

I will be driving down with my 3 kids to Disney to pick up ds who is currently a CP. So road trip for us!

Poor dh will be staying home, working like crazy and holding down the fort. He isn't sad though since he is sure that Disney in August is going to be miserably hot. He and I just got back from the World last week, celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary at POFQ where we had a wonderful time and LOVED the resort. I was having a hard time coming back home until I got the idea to make a road trip out of picking ds up instead of flying him back home solo. Gotta take advantage of those CP perks while we can!

So ds just booked us at the BC August 7th-10th. We are SO excited! We have never stayed at a deluxe before and that pool looks amazing! Kids are getting pumped
We have a pool or lagoon view (standard wasn't available) and really, really want a full balcony (I'm an early riser and my young adult and teen children are NOT) and we need that day bed. The guys are all adult sized young men and dd is almost my size.

We have been to Disney nearly every year for the past 15 years but have never been in the summer. We are homeschoolers so have some flexibility with the time of year to go and are really spoiled. I'm a little concerned how hot it is going to be! We figure we can always live in the pool and come out in the evening
I loved May weather (dh thought it was too hot) and I'm wondering how much worse August will be?

Excited to learn more about BC from you all!


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

Since there are 4 of you, you will need to request a daybed. If a room with a daybed is not available during your stay, you can get a rollaway cot, free of charge, based on availability. (Unless all 4 children are staying in the room- then as a party of 5 you will have priority for a room with a daybed)

Sounds like a full balcony is a priority for you, so I suggest working your request. "Full balcony, please. Daybed if possible"

As TigrLuvsPooh suggests, the key for dealing with Disney in the summer heat is EARLY!!! Get to the parks in the morning as early as you can, then take a break when the crowds and heat really start to arrive.

My DD is also graduating from 8th grade this year. I swear I went through a mini-mid-life crisis when she turned 13. How can my baby be a teenager!?! Now she's going to high school! WDW does make it all better. It's the only place she still holds my hand and acts like she loves in public! lol

Beach Club boys and girls, order another round of Sunken Treasures because the family and I are staying put at Beach Club My Dsister called this morning to let me know that she would like to join us!! She has never been, EVER to Disney, and it will be her birthday while we are there I am surprising my kiddos, so I'm not telling them until she shows up at Beach Club to join us!!! I did tell her that she has to be willing to do EMH, and she said she was in!! Alright, had to post before settling in to play catch up!! I'm sure I missed something good!!

First vacation (although very short) without DS in over 16 years! What were we thinking?!?!?
Dee....

You probably missed this..... not like this thread doesn't move quickly, or anything!

Would you please add us to the BOG list for these dates?

Thanks.

Anyone use the Sandcastle.Club? Our DD 6, seems excited by it, but DS 12, not so much. We are going with another family who is staying at CBR with 2 sons, ages10 and 12.

Would the boys be kept amused to us old folks can grab a libation somewhere?

Just wanted to introduce myself. We will be at BCV June 1 -7. I have to admit that I have done very little planning for this trip and want to make this a real vacation. This is my 6th trip to Disney and 3rd stay at BCV. This will be my first solo trip with the kids (dd 11 and ds 7) since my divorce last year. Pray for us! I am looking forward to some fun and relaxation. Say hi if you see us at the pool!
