Also, much to my surprise, we had turn-down service even though we weren't staying club level.

We thoroughly enjoyed Stormalong Bay. We had no trouble finding chairs mid-afternoon. We did have to use our key cards for access though as the Magic Band scanners weren't operational. And the drinks from the bar are sooo good too

Transportation was great. We never had a long wait for either buses or boats. And the walk to Epcot was convenient as well.

We were glad to have the opportunity to test the Magic Bands. Personally, we liked them very much. There was a little glitch with one of our bands at the airport getting on the Magical Express & another one upon checking in, but both were resolved. We had selected our FP+ before we left home. It was so nice to "sleep in" on our Epcot day, knowing that we already had secured Soarin' fastpasses for 9:00-10:00 a.m. & could just walk over at our leisure.

But the thing that really sticks in my mind is the high level of service at the resort. Each and every CM we encountered was helpful and friendly while seeming genuinely interested in providing service. This was our third stay at the YC and now I can't imagine staying anywhere else.
Your review just got me extra excited! So glad you had a great trip!

I haven't found Ninjamom in the room *yet* but I'll keep looking! Yes, from her posts, I would think if she had been here she would have kept the open suitcases put away, thus avoiding the calamity in the first place!

Thank goodness we are off to the beach and not Disney!
Oh, feel better! My problem is just that my face feels funny and I look like a prize fighter. AND I'm not looking forward to taking out my left contact tonight...

All I'm waiting for, as far as Feckless's trip is concerned, is the sure to happen Moose 'incident' at home.

Now we have to come up with a plausible reason as to why Feckless has that shiner and NO, Ninja Mom is not a good cover story!

The first thought that comes to mind is Stich but that has been done to death so that's out. There is always the cover story of a Berserk tour group (visiting from Berserkistan!). The more I think about this the more I like it!

Feckless, when you find people staring at your giant black eye just announce casually that you were run over by a tour group from Berserkistan. Yeah.... that should do it.

As for Pinkgirl's broken toe, she should say that she was practicing her martial arts skills to defend herself from the thundering herds of out of control Berserkistanian's running unfettered through WDW.

~NM
Berserkistani tour groups are the WORST. All that chanting AND flailing about of the arms and rending of the garments... Very distracting from the magic.

I am documenting the daily progression. Yes, this is certainly a story to tell! LOL

I was very confused last night to see 2 KTTW for each of us & was afraid to click on them or do anything. It's our first ever stay at BC & it took me almost 2 hrs to get our RO reservations when they came out so I don't want to do anything to mess that up. TIA
On the MDE issues, don't panic - all of my dining reservations have disappeared and when I try to re-link them it says that they are associated with a different guest. Also it says our FPs are for 3 not 4 but they all are working. So, just keep the faith! It's probably the app.

I totally agree with this. Especially for Soarin' and TSMM - no worries, just show up before the end of your FP time. No runners, no problem. Very relaxing!

While we all appreciate how catchy Disney fever is, you should not be trying to keep up with Feckless by catching her tripitis! Not a good trend!

If Feckless gets home and spots a moose with a black eye, she'll know he tripped in her front yard.


LMAO Janet!!!! (For those who don't know, a moose was in my front yard at home when I was at Disney last year.)

And yes, the sunglasses are really more for DH than me. I don't care, but I don't want him to feel self-conscious! He was falling over himself apologizing to me this morning (it was his suitcase left open that I fell over!) and I told him to stop because people might think he was apologizing for the wrong reason! LOL

MINI TR ALERT!

Had dinner at Yachtsman last night - delish. Expensive but worth it. Kids were even trying their best not to be themselves. LOL

Today was Epcot day. Arrived in time for Soarin' FPs - the FP+ really takes the stress out of making rope drop! Extremely hot and extremely humid - welcome to FLA in August! Did Soarin', Living with the Land, Figment, Test Track (LOVED IT), Mission Space Orange (skipped it), lunch at Sunshine seasons (beet salad and chicken enchilada soup - YUM), then Ellen and SSE. Great day. Ate and drank and drank at the lounge. Kids went swimming. DS is crabby beyond belief. The heat is not doing it for him. LOL

Saw TEENA! So happy to see her.

Heading to Chefs de France... More later.

Quick question - we had some comments on our stay that we mailed a letter to Ms Flynn (at the address on page 1). It's been about a month since we mailed the letter with no response. Is this normal for the Beach Club?

In the past, we've at least had a note acknowledged by a hotel GM after sending it. I'm a little surprised we have haven't heard back at all.

Thanks

Mike

I'm so excited! I called last night to upgrade our May 2014 reservations to BC-club level! Only because we're celebrating our 10 year anniversary and our son will be celebrating his kindergarten graduation. this will be our first deluxe stay, we're usually at a mod. I fell in love with BC when I started researching WDW, I'm like a kid at Christmas LOL

We aren't part of the Magic Band testing, probably because our trip isn't until Nov 30th, but there has been a KTTW card on our profiles on MDE and it has been there for months, listed as active. I am expecting that at some point I'll be able to customize the bands, but I'm sure that won't be for awhile yet. We haven't bought our tickets yet, either, but have been considering buying AP's, since we are returning at the end of April.

More refillable mug information.

OK, I talked to the merchandise manager about the question asked about a split stay where first part of stay is at a resort and the guest has dining plan and second half of stay is at a resort without the dining plan. Question was do you have to buy a second mug since dining plan mug is for length of dining plan.

Answer: No.

He said any "length of stay mug" whether it be purchased as length of stay or it is a free mug for length of dining plan is good for 14 days. So if your total trip between the two resorts is under 14 days, you are good to go with the first free mug you get at the first resort that comes with the dining plan. It can be used at the second resort even though you do not have a dining plan there.

Secondly, somebody said earlier that a CM in the market place said that the mug you get with the dining plan expires at 11 AM (check out time) on the last day of your dining plan. The manager said that is not true. It's good for 14 days.

I think with all the "different" information out there, that the only way to tell how it is definitely going to work is to live with it. Once it goes active, we'll all get reports and I'm sure there will be bugs to work out with this too.

But the above information was given to me by a merchandise manager from the Marketplace so I'm betting its right.

Sitting up with ice on my knee and ankle. Kids and DH are night swimming. They are going to collapse.

Blizzard Beach tomorrow! I'm planning on just sitting in a lounge chair, drinking and reading and relaxing. Leave it to the kids and the other family to do all the slides.

Last year the other family couldn't stand more than a couple of hours in the parks at a time. This family is on a Disney Death March! LOL Seriously, commando is just a joke. The other mom keeps telling me that this is all so "relaxing". We have been starting for rope drop, and going until 5, which is not what all would characterize as relaxing. LOL We are all having a ball.

YCFan...so sorry for your loss. I know how difficult it is to lose a fur baby.

Feckless...so sorry to hear about your fall...that's terrible
------------------------------------

Day 2 of our vacation and things haven't gone so well. Spent the entire morning with my oldest DD at Celebration hospital...she caught a BAD stomach bug and isn't doing much better unfortunately. I have had to get housekeeping to come up twice already to clean & disinfect our room and bathroom. Really hoping she's a little better tomorrow or I see another visit to the ER coming .

Teena...so wonderful to see you, loved catching up and safe travels tomorrow.

Dee....will try to get some pics for you once things quiet down on my end.

Yippee! We will be at the Yacht Club on Wednesday morning! Our first deluxe and first YC stay! My family is super excited, especially our 6.5 and 8 yr old daughters! Thanks for letting me lurk and gather lots of useful information, it's been fun! Quick question, we are staying standard view, hopefully with day bed, and we would like a quiet room, any suggestions? Thanks!

Oh no I'm sorry. What do you think happened? Did she eat something funny? I hope she gets well very, very soon!
