Yo!!

I'm already starting a menu for our pre-marathon dinner at BCV in January! I'm thinking spaghetti for the runners and lasagna for the rest of the fam. I need to go read the kitchen contents of our villa to see what I need to ship down ahead of time. I know they'll have pots to boil water and make sauce, but I'm not sure about the 9x13 pan. I can always ship down some disposable ones and toss them after.

I won't even mention my upcoming trip to the Poly that I'm super excited about! Yes I am a traitor!!! But I'm still coming over to HH for a Sunken Treasure!

Anyone know if there is a photopass photographer at Beach Club? We are staying at BC in Sept and have purchased PP+. Will have lots of family photos in the parks, would love to get one at the resort.

No No....Not a traitor. We all have our 'other' resorts at WDW. I love the Lodges and visit them when we can. It's just that BC is home!

I'd like to know the answer to this as well...planning on getting PP+

Jealous of all you signing up for the Princess 1/2, wishing I could bite the bullet and do it too..sigh. Speaking of Disney and active stuff, I remember at one time they did a triathlon there do they still do one? (although the thought of swimming in any Disney "lake" is grossing me out right now)

NM~where is *your* TR, my dear???

35 days, which translates to 5 weeks!!!!

Just saw you "ran" the Princess. I'm trying to convince my friend to go with me, but she's not sure she can do a half. When you did it in 2012, were there lots of people power walking, too? I've been telling her that if she can at least do a 15 minute mile, she'll be ok.

They don't have the Photopass photographers at the resorts any longer. You can book a private portrait session with Disney Event Photography and they will come to the BC.

Construction Concerns/Way Back Machine

A lot of people have expressed concern about the upcoming refurb of rooms scheduled at BC for the fall and probably the YC after that.

Ninjamom and I both posted what we know so far about the work, but not much news has been released yet.

I am guessing that disruption to guests is minimized as much as possible but I can't really help with what a stay is like during the construction phase because my involvement with these resorts happened after the last refurb.

I think this is the FAQ thread that happened around the time the refurbs at BC and YC took place.


New 2008 Beach & Yacht Club FAQ


I don't have time to poke around, but perhaps there is some info there that would give some responses about what a stay was like during construction.

Did anyone here stay at the Yacht or Beach while the refurb was underway in 2008/early 2009?

We (my sisters, BIL's, wife and I) have done the January half for the last five years. I'll even go so far as say there is a lot of latitude with the 16 minute mile. The sweepers at the end do not begin until the last runner crosses the starting lines so that gives you extra sponge time. And trust me. Us guys at the back are not "runners'. Waddlers may be more appropriate.

Good morning! I woke up extra early this morning....my body must think I'm in the Eastern time zone! I've got those famous "it's almost time to go to WDW" butterflies in my stomach. We leave in TWO days!

I'm keeping one eye on the weather and Tropical Storm Chantal. There's not much I can do bedside pack our ponchos. Whatever happens, happens. It's beyond my control!

Our estimated time of arrival on Saturday is 11:30am. Woo hoo! I plan on sleeping as soon as we get there...hopefully our room is ready. If its not, I'll be the zombie walking thru SAB looking for a personal belonging-less chair so I can sleep while the kids and my husband frolic in the water. I don't sleep in the car for fear we will wake up dead if I do.

Why YES! I did forget to mention all those things! I like how the rest of us are jumping in to help fill in the missing details from Dee's imaginary trip report.

Nice job! Having a goal like that will really keep you focused through all that training you'll be doing. Good luck!

I have only heard that the fall work is for BC.

Some of our DVC friends might have more info on when work at BCV will happen. I don't pay as much attention to the villas as I should, but I think I remember hearing that ALL villas on property are scheduled for refurb in the near future (maybe a soft refurb- bedding???).

Does that sound familiar, or am I imagining this?
