I was just going to say the same thing.

"An Agency" booked a huge block of rooms off for a discount. I spoke with mine yesterday to ask about her thoughts on crowd levels. She stated that BC/YC is booked solid because of them but its only those 2 resorts. So it shouldn't affect the parks. so pretty much seats at SAB will be few and far between

HI TEENA!!! So happy to hear your report!!! Have you tried the beach at 10th Street on the bay side? If you're interested, turn right out of the house. When you get to the bay, turn left (away from the Fun Zone, Ferry, etc.) and keep following the path until you get to the Yacht Club. Take a right and keep following that road until you get to 10th Street. It's the bay, not the ocean, but we swam there lots when the boys were tiny.



Hope you had a great walk to Balboa Island - just love it there!!! Enjoy!

I'm staying BCV's the fridge is there actually it's a little bigger than a fridge in a regular hotel room. I've never stayed here before so not sure if they've changed them. Hth!

Let me know if there are any other questions.

I just called the BC regarding the fridges. The very nice CM said they Were going to be replaced and she didn't know exactly how long that was going to take.
Possibly a few months

Ugh

Has anyone heard about BC replacement or know the BC phone number to call and find out?
Maybe somebody could start a YC/BC fridge swap? I would think somebody who is driving there or has a rental car could get someplace that sells small refrigerators.
