That must be a man thing!!! I remember when my dad had that surgery, he thought he could just resume as before like nothing happened!!!

Glad you convinced him to stay put today!!!!

Thanks for the thread link and walk down memory lane. Viewed some of my great room view photos first few pages of 2008 thread!
Good to know. Thanks!!

Really?
Well that would be nice?!?! Doesn't sound right though. :-)

I just read on this thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3138895 that refrigerators will be removed and replaced at the resorts. It will take 4 months to fully replace them.

The thread says that it won't effect AoA or ASMu suites. Someone also wrote that they called POR and they will be fully replaced by July 31.

Has anyone heard about BC replacement or know the BC phone number to call and find out?

I've just read about the fridge issue as well. If we do end up with no fridge, do they have ice machines at the Beach Club?

I have always thought about staying here but with the kids and my mom, it is easier to stay at CR. DH isn't really a Disney fan...GASP! I know! But I thought with just the two of us doing more adult things, this resort is the perfect choice! This thread and the pic thread really helped clinch the deal!

We will be checking in August 15th!!! SO excited!
Welcome!!! That sounds so exciting! Like you my DH is not that big of a fan and that is one of the reasons I think BC will be more of a vacation for him. Walking to Epcot, boardwalk and being so close to HS I think is going to be so much fun!

First of all, we are having a ball. House we are renting ... thanks to a fellow DISER here who referred us to it ... is absolutely perfect. Clean, has everything you can think of in it, is soooo close to beach and bay and good restaurants. We love everything about it. Only negative is the ocean beach. Beach is wonderful but we are not crazy about the drop off in the ocean. Our only other CA beach experience was Huntington Beach and that had a wonderful beach. Here the actual beach is long and beautiful but then it drops off steeply and after a few feet of wet sand, goes right into the ocean which also drops off steeply. Wherein Huntington Beach you can walk and walk before you are up to your waist. So I think next year when Lily is more interested in playing in the waves, we'll have to look for a house in Huntington Beach. Anybody has any referrals, please let me know. The location here in the Newport Beach house is unbelievable. Car won't be moved for the whole week. You can walk to everything!!! And the ferry over to the island is so much fun.

OK, now on the Y&B stuff. I see there were questions about the magic bands and a spotting at the Y&B. Yes, they were being tested there last week and perhaps is still going on. When I worked on Sunday we were still testing. However, it's not for regular guests. It's only for CM guests. So anybody you see at the Y&B with the magic bands are CMs that are checking in and participating in testing. We have this going on all over WDW. Want to try and get all the kinks worked out before we let this loose on guests ... you know, to avoid guests having the issues.

As far as rehab. Yes, it was originally scheduled for the fall (Oct.) and it could still happen I suppose. However, they are still not agreed (and I have no idea who "they" actually are) on the exact room decor so until that happens and all the materials can be ordered, it looks as if the rehab might be pushed back a few months.

Now on to the offerings at various CLs at all the deluxe resorts on WDW property. The offerings change yearly ... sometimes twice a year. So what you see in pictures or what you remember from a year or two ago at any resort will be different a year later. It constantly changes at all resorts. All the resorts have downsized the evening offerings from what they served years ago. They found guests were trying to make actual meals out of the appetizers. The club level lounges were never meant to be meals (except for breakfast). I sure miss the ribs they use to serve at both the YC and BC. However, because people would eat dinner there instead of just appetizers, they had to discontinue such huge amounts of offerings. It is only meant as evening appetizers. We use to have guests that would fill up trays of ribs and other items and take them back to their rooms, only to appear 30 minutes later to get another tray of food. I think the amount of ribs they went through in the lounges were as much as they went through in Cape May at the buffet. So, I just wanted everybody to understand that if you stayed at the Grand of the Poly or at the Y&B club levels four years ago or even two years ago, you will notice that the offerings are different now. So you can't judge from past experiences of the offerings or pictures on websites. The menus/offerings change.

I'll try to get on every morning to catch up with questions. Hope everybody is having a wonderful time at the Y&B!!!!
Have a wonderful time Teena!!

Ok, so it wasn't a fluke. DP is home around 4:30....I'll have some wine ready and start working on him to just book now and worry about paying for it later!

I think it is. The only thing I can think is that they've jacked up ticket and DP prices, so they could afford to take a small percentage off the room rates.

Am I missing something???

What is going on the week of 8/18 at the BC/YC? Is there a large convention going on? It appears that most rooms are booked solid or at least that's what my DD is telling me. We're going a week later than last year & thought it would be less busy but now I'm wondering. Any one know?

It appears there is something to the left of Fantasia Gardens that crosses this road. We are staying at BCV for the first time in October and thought we might try this one afternoon. TIA for your help.

As Erika said it is good walkway. You just walk past the big pool and there is a pedestrian crosswalk over to the golf courses. Very easy.

Not sure if this is the cause, but we booked BC under a travel agent deal that was offering rooms at either BC or YC in August (plus some other resorts). I think a lot of people have booked BC/YC in August using that particular deal. That may be a contributing factor.
