We've used the Sandcastle Club lots of times. DS just turned 12 last year and he liked it so much he wen three times! He liked playing the video games and had a great time with the staff.

We haven't used the Sandcastle Club...but have used similar things- Kids club at the Dolphin, and on the Disney Cruise Line. They've gone through various stages of love/hate with kids club...bottom line for us has always been, there's stuff there that they can entertain themselves with for a few hours, and since we're the ones actually paying for the vacation, they can deal with it! :lol:

Sounds great. I talked to my son some more ad he seemed more enthused. Maybe we (DW and our friends and I) will shamble to Jelly Rolls or something...,

Thanks! I am subscribed to the discount thread, I just have to hope someone posts when the discount comes out....

Love it! I was wondering about surprising DH with an adult only dinner while we are there in Oct at the BC CL. I was wondering if they would let my DS13 go to the Sandcastle Club with DS11 and DD7. He would definitely play video games all night if they would let him. lol

If I was able to work that out, where should we go dine?

Thanks!

Do you want to stay near the Boardwalk/Epcot to dine or go someplace else on property?

My favorite date night spot w/DH is California Grill during Wishes. Narcoossee's is next on our list. We really enjoy Flying Fish and there's a sushi restaurant in the Swan which is fabulous and intimate. There's so many options. I could go crazy finding places to eat if we had someone watching DD.

Very exciting!!!! Have a safe trip and don't forget to give us all the details when you are there (or when you come back if you are having too much fun to write).

Yes, this thread has been moving at head spinning speeds!!!
Thanks. I should have checked the list again before I posted.

Even though we're going to WDW in three weeks, staying at OKW is a different kind of vacation than the YC. Can't wait to get back to the YC in August!

I checked Cali Grill and they are booked. I think staying in Epcot area would be great. That Flying Fish has availability and also the Yatchmans?
Now just wondering if the sandcastle club would keep my 13 year old.

Sounds like a short session, but we got great pictures. They then give you all the pictures on a flashdrive. The first year we did it, he took us to the beach at the POLY. The sand was too distracting for our small kids at the time, so now I request to skip the beach, so we get more pictures for our 20 minutes. Give it a try!
Yay! I found someone who has done/will be doing it again! would you be able to give me the number? When I asked about this on another thread people said they discountinued the 20 minutes sessions last year and is there a certain photographer you ask for? Also what time of day do you think is best? And what happens if it rains?
And sorry....last question, what do you get with the price? Thanks!
