Geez......leave a trail of bread crumbs or something so I could find you when you move!!!

First I'd like to thank Dee for doing all the work to bind up all the info about my favorite resort into one nice big attractive pile.

Next I'd like to address the besmerchment of my reputation when reading that trip report written by that tawdry woman whom shall remain unnamed. First of all I am a fly and as such I have some natural inclinations towards the unseemly side of life, especially the trash cans. Just know that you can depend on 'ol Buzzy to find out the dirty details and finish any unattended drinks laying about the resort. I am your Beach Club bon vivant after all......

I am too much of a gentleman to kiss and tell stories about the two "N's", especially since Mrs. Buzzy is still a little sore that I tagged along on this girls trip.

Catho, as hard as I tried I could not drag the two of them into the laundry room for free drinks. They kept insisting they had better things to do, like hunt for designer purses or do kamikaze driving runs in the middle of the night at Fort Wilderness.. These two party animals have no common sense I tell you! !

Perhaps one day 'ol Buzzy and his trashy party lifestyle will be better appreciated by some other travelers. As for now I am stuck with Ninja mom and Nannette.

Signed, your friend, Buzzy, the Beach Club party fly

We always go the last 2 weeks of August. The closer to the end of the month you get, the less the crowds are. Local kids go back to school mid month.
Yes, it is hot & humid. We wear light, loose clothing stay hydrated, and take mid day breaks back at the resort. SAB is a great place to relax and cool off.

Absolutely the best time in the summer!! However, get out of there before around the 8th of September when the love bugs show up!!!!!! Doing parks isn't bad but being at a pool (unless you are in the water the entire time) is not doable during the heavy part of love bug season.

Nannette said you chould have followed the fish and the turtles here.

Although, come to think of it, you probably prefer not to hang around with fish, especially at dinner time.

You found us and that is the important thing!

We're going too! We stayed one night at BC as a last minute addition a few years back when I got my dream job while visiting WDW. We are returning August 9-14, this time as DVC members. We have a studio booked at BCV. So excited! We have a cruise booked on the Dream following this visit, so it is shorter than I prefer.

I just had a look at Yacht Club rooms and unless they have managed to remove the king bed from the 4th floor room we stayed in, the details are incorrect. We had a king water view overlooking the wedding gazebo.

Room 4137. http://disboards.com/showpost.php?p=...postcount=1637

We are down to 24 days before our trip to the BC. We loved it in December with all the kids and grandkids, but are really looking forward to it being just the 2 of us. We plan on relaxing and enjoying our meals I have planned.

Teena, hope to see you sometime during our trip.

Wow...new thread!

Dee, congrats on number 10,000, and thank you for all you do. You are a goddess of thread keeping, and I bow to you!

From the last thread, thank you YCFan and DisneyMomx7 for your kind words about Henry.

Dee, could you update (at your leisure of course!) our plans? We are BC, 8/15-17....YC-CL, 8/17-23...GF, 8/23-8/25

Teena....only 7 months until we're reunited!

Dee - Thank you for the great new thread! I really appreciate all the information provided in the first pages

I believe I managed to convince Grumpy DH to come with the kids for the weekend before my conference starts but he insists that he will only go to the Pool and to Epcot And he thinks I'm going to argue with that??? Now to wait for Tuesday so the airline rates go down so I can book their flights!

Beach Club Club Level Views

Is there a view of the fireworks from the Club Level at the Beach Club? Is there a balcony to walk outside there too?

We have a family of 5, I requested a daybed. We had a daybed at the Polynesian and it was a full size twin. Does the Beach Club have daybeds that are full size twins? Please let me know...Thanks!!!

Ok...so I won a trip to Port St. Lucie to Mets spring training for 2 days includes hotel and airfare... now the Mets are NOT the team I cheer for, but I attend their short season affiliate minor league team games (Brooklyn Cyclones). I played a game all last season online and low and behold I WON!! So I will go to see a game with the Mets then I said hmmm gonna be about half hour from Vero so I should go to Disney Vero Beach... sounds good to me since I've wanted go visit there anyway!!

I've been checking out the Vero Beach thread, but felt like I could come here and ask if anyone has stayed at Vero and if so, can you tell me about it... should I get the ocean view room or garden view??? Also I remember Teena talking about a seafood restaurant.... what was the name of it Teena?? Any ideas anyone has for while I'm there please let me know! I'm not sure exactly when I'm going yet, I just sent in 2 sets of dates.. So I should know within the week when I'm going, but I know it's in March!

Ok thank you for listening and please send advice!!

Have you seen the Beach Club Room View thread? Guests have posted their views from rooms in the various categories to give people a sampling of what is available. See the link in Post 108 on the next page.


I haven't used that deal, but some on here did last year and have booked it again this year. No idea whether you would be able to updgrade when you check in, but I don't see why not if there is a garden room available during the length of your stay. It doesn't hurt to ask!

Let us know if you do end up booking and I will add you to the Be Our Guest list. I do have you on there for June, but it sounds like your current reservation is for POR.

I don't see anyone here mentioning that Beaches & Cream now takes ADRs!

Someone did mention about the new Beaches & Cream ADR policy on the previous thread, but it bears repeating for those who may have missed the news. Reactions are mixed.

Thanks for posting those links. If I get a chance, I'll compare the info provided to the info from the View Threads link to see how well it matches up.

I don't know if I can be any more leisurely

You have mentioned this change to me a couple of times and I have written down and I don't know why I haven't made the change.

I'm on it! (I hope)

The answers are -

No, you can't see fireworks from the balcony. The current view is nothing to write home about (I'll post a picture in a minute), but I don't know if that will change when the lounge is expanded. I doubt it though.

Yes, there is a balcony, but since it doesn't really have a great view, I don't think many people use it.

I'll post a picture of the daybed we had in June, and some info about daybeds from the FAQ section on Page 1 of this thread.

I haven't been, but I have read a few trip reports with lots of info from stays at Vero Beach by eandesmom and glennbo. If you would like me to post the links to their reports, let me know.
