DH & I have eaten here twice...once on our honeymoon and another time...AND we get to go there to celebrate our (late) anniversary!!!

So excited

It's at the Wilderness Lodge. I've always heard so many great things about it. I think DH and I need to go there on October. The WL is beautiful. My family stayed there back in 2005 but we only ate at Whispering Canyon Cafe.

Tips for Mousekeeping

Hi Everyone,

We will be leaving for our vacation in 25 days. Staying at The Beach Club
Woo Hoo !

Can you all tell me what is a good tip for Mousekeeping? Should I leave an envelope daily with something. Just curious what most people do.

Also for Club Level if I bring a gift from home for the lounge CM's How many should I bring and when do you give them their gifts at the end of the trip or the beginning? Again just curious.

Thank you

And, unfortunately talking with my DS (11) about the offerings at Artist Point and thinking of my less than adventurous sister and my DD who eats like a bird, Artist Point is out!! Shoot!!

Added a day-new dates for BOG!

Hello Beach Club Friends,

Haven't posted in awhile but have been reading our thread daily. Love, love, love all the current trip reports. I've been waiting for another day to open up for club level and it did today, so I added a day! We had to move to standard view, so I'm nervous about that, but I'll just cross my fingers that all goes well.
Dee, our new dates are 6/28-7/7.

Can anyone give me some feedback on SVCL rooms? I asked for a full balcony and daybed, not knowing anything about room configurations or views other than parking lot or roof top. After having looked at the photo thread, some of the SVCL room views actually don't look that bad to me.

Teena and Robyn, I'm thinking we won't make the Disers meet, as we'll be on the road before the roosters crow on 7/7, but looking forward to meeting you all at the resort!

Hi, everyone.

We just checked into the YC. First time staying here, and so far we love it. We're in a GV CL room -- it overlooks a center courtyard, view straight ahead is of BC, turn to the right and it's the lake. Nice clear view of Eiffel Tower, too, so guessing we'll be able to see fireworks from our balcony.

Weather is overcast and humid but actually not very hot. Guess that's the plus side of a rainy forecast.

I didn't post much on this thread, but truly appreciate all the info it contains. I feel like I already know the resort even though I've never stayed here. Thanks!

We stayed in a svcl at BC last summer, it had a daybed and balcony. The view straight out was roof top looking to the left was SAB... We were really pleased with it! I will dig up a couple pictures to post.
