Just bought the inflatable noodles yesterday. Put them straight into the Disney bin! If anyone uses them successfully at SAB let me know!! FYI there were 2 in a pack for $3 in the Target Dollar Spot.

Still July 13-21??? BC CL (All Beach Club, All the Time)

Once again, I am excited about this news!

Congrats! I'll make the change to the BOG list.

Personally, I would take CL over view every time!

Have you booked a trip? Let us know the dates if you would like to be added to the Be Our Guest list.

BUMPING up your question about Wi-Fi at Stormalong Bay. Does anyone have recent experience?

When is your trip?

Some responses about a scavenger hunt are earlier in this thread.

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



But first, you need to give me more details about your whole trip...

Is the Universal portion of your stay before or after YC? Where are you staying?? Have you been to US/IoA before?

Our dates are very similar.

We are going to "The Park Which Must Not Be Named" from July 13-16, then checking in to the BC July 16-20.

Headed back to BC on June 7th -- lost track of how many times we've stayed at YC/BC -- might be our 8th visit; in any case, can't wait!

We did online check-in, and my question is if our KTTW will be RFID.

Thanks!

We will not be certain on our dates for a few months, but, it will be in May (I THINK!!). We will be staying a total of 9 nights, doing a split stay between AoA, and just decided yesterday on YC. Most likely, it will be a 4/5 split, respectively.

I read the entire first page, and that just set it in more that the YC is where I would like to stay!!

I do have a question regarding the views. If we were to book Garden View, is the view ONLY of "something green"? Or, may it also have rooftop/parking views? I ask this because we recently stayed at Aulani in a Garden View, and I felt as if I had a Standard View with a hill in the background

Also, does anybody know what the rack rate was for May this year? Just trying to get an idea in my head of figures.

Thanks a bunch!!

Would you like me to pencil you in on the Be Our Guest list for May, or wait until you book?

Regarding room views- I have started a couple of "View Threads" on the resort photo subforum. Click on these links and scroll through for a few samples of views from the different room categories.

Beach Club Room Views

Yacht Club Room Views


The Yacht Club gift shop is Fittings & Fairings. There is a link on Page 1, Post 6. I'll add it here in a minute.

ETA:

Here is a link to over 20 photos taken by Cinderumbrella in June 2011:

Took advantage of the bounceback offer. Booked for both Sept & Dec coz we don't know whch week DH will be able to go. We'll be canceling 1 of them when we finally know. Can't wait to go back!!!
Thanks so much for your very detailed review! We appreciate the info.

Are you bouncing back to the Yacht Club? Or another resort? Do you want me to pencil you in for Sept and Dec, or wait until you know which dates you will be traveling?

Do you have a trip booked? When? Would you like to be added to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1?



Others have also responded- all rooms at the resort have a mini-fridge.

Post-trip to the thread!

Here's the info on the BC/YC scent from the "Other Useful Info" post on Page 1.

What is that awesome smell at the Beach Club?

The scent generator may be purchased at www.scentairhome.com
The scent used is green clover and aloe

Redneck scent solutions- if you can't afford the scentair system, there are reports that certain fragrances at Bath & Body Works are good matches. Unfortunately, some of these lines have been discontinued:

BBW: Rainkissed Leaves, Exotic Rainforest, Oceanside, Cotton Blossom

Please let us know if you have found other good substitutions. I think a few people have mentioned some Yankee Candle scents remind them of the BC smell, but I can't remember what they are, so if someone knows, please post. I'll add the info.

On a cold and rainy Memorial Day weekend, with even a possibility of SNOW, this thread keeps me warm and happy.

Hello Y&BC friends! It's been awhile since I've posted. However I've been lurking for months!! My last time being very active on the DIS was last year, but that was mostly on the DL threads since we visited DL/DCA for the first time. Anyway, I miss my 'old' friends and look forward to all the new friends here...this is such a friendly place!!

DH and I are coming down for F&W in October...have the SW airfare booked but not hotel yet (opposite of what I normally do). I had a great pin code through end of September and wanted to book with that for the beginning of F&W, but we have a wedding in VA end of Sep. We do know we want to stay in the Epcot area!! My daughter is upset she can't go (college), but my son (just graduated from Rutgers) seems okay with it. They both enjoy Disney (especially DD). So all of you folks wondering if your kids will outgrow WDW...I say don't even think of it. There is sooooo much to do and my family realized on our last few trips it's not just about the rides haha.

Kerry

~~~ Look to Page 1 ~~~


The main thing you need to remember is follow the hallway signs to Room 1501.

Here is the post from the BC Rooms Post (Post 8)


Step-Saving Super Secret Entrance to the Beach Club

There is a side entrance/exit to the Beach Club which takes you mere steps, probably 3 minutes, from the International Gateway Entrance. It is near room 1501.

This was really handy for us a couple of times this summer when it was wicked hot and when it had just started pouring.

You have to go through a lot of hallways to find it, so the best way to do this is to follow the signs to room 1501 from the lobby.

Here are photos of the exit door near room 1501, the pathway and the gate to the "secret entrance"

PHEW!!!

It wasn't easy, but I'm all caught up.

Please take a moment to review the Be Our Guest list to make sure I have your information listed correcty.


Post 15: Be Our Guest list


I also tried to bump up any outstanding questions, but if I missed something from a day or two ago, feel free to ask again.

There's still an outstanding ? about whether the KTTW cards at the BC/YC have RFID chips.
