It's been a while since I checked in with my Beach Club friends. Our plans for the summer are quickly approaching. We'll be arriving in Orlando on Friday, 8/1, and we are going to stay one night at the GF in Sugar Loaf before we head off to our cruise on Saturday morning. We'll be eating dinner at 1900 Park Fair, and we're hoping to get a view of Wishes at the end of the evening.

We'll do breakfast in the lounge, then have a swim before the bus comes to pick us up to take us to Port Canaveral. We have a concierge family room on the Fantasy, and we'll be visiting Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, and finally to Castaway Cay.

We disembark on 8/9, and then we are heading over to our favorite Beach Club. We've got one night booked on the club level, and we have one day passes to Epocot. We should be arriving at the resort around 9:30 am or so and plan to head out to the park for the morning. We've got lunch reserved around noon at Beaches and Cream, then we plan to spend the afternoon at Stormalong Bay. We'll head back out to Epcot to have dinner at the Biergarten around 7ish. We'll watch Illuminations and head back to the resort for our final evening before heading home.

The trip starts in 9 weeks, 5 days and 18 hours.

Has anyone ordered supplies from Amazon and had them delivered to BC for your visit? How does this work? How do you address the shipment?

You can ship to the Beach Club, but be aware that there's an extra charge for fedex or UPS because it's a Conference Center. This post has more information:

Can I ship a package to Beach Club or Yacht Club for my stay?

If you ship a package to the resort, Mail by United States Postal Service, not anything else!!! If you mail other than USPS, your items will be shipped to the convention center and the shipping department will charge the recipient a handling charge, based on the weight of your package.

Disney's Beach Club Resort (or Disney's Beach Club Villas)
1800 Epcot Resort Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830
Please give to Guest, (name on reservation)
Check-in date 9/1/10 (for example)

or

Disney's Yacht Club Resort
1700 Epcot Resort Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830
Please give to Guest, (name on reservation)
Check-in date 9/1/10 (for example)

Orders from Garden Grocer are delivered to Bell Services at YC or BC, so they are not subject to the resort delivery fee, only the delivery fee charged by the company. You can ask Bell Services to deliver the order to your room when you are there.

There was more discussion about water over on the previous thread which got momentarily resurrected:

I know they sell milk etc. so I thought they might have cases of water?

If so I'll just pack our cereal, buy the milk and water there and avoid having to use the grocery delivery service. I'd appreciate any tips you all might have.
I believe the Marketplace does have cases of water available, at least it is on the listing of items DVC members can preorder:

24 pack of 12 oz Dasani water, $16.00

Theoretically you could do that as long as the TSA does not have a restriction on the amount of liquid you can check in a bag (anyone know, someone just looked up the rules on wine), but you do have to be concerned with

1) Baggage fees unless you are using an airline like SW with free baggage allowances

2) Weight limits on your bags, if you are packing other stuff in the same suitcase. Not sure what a case of water weighs, but me thinks, a lot.

We love Trail's End but usually only eat breakfast there when we stay at WL. The Captain's Grill at the YC serves a very nice breakfast buffet and it is about the same price as Trail's End. Both restaurants will give a 10% discount for Disney Visa or annual pass holders.

GREAT reminder!

Someone had mentioned this before our July trip and we did get the 10% discount using our Disney Visa when we ate there for lunch. But I think the discount is only valid for breakfast and lunch, at least at the Captain's Grille, not dinner. Not sure about the AP discount.

Thank you. I'm not sure what Amazon uses, it may vary depending on the product and shipping speed you request. I've looked at the grocery delivery, but we don't need that much. The only thing that I really need to have is Greek yogurt. It's a dietary need. I don't want to waist time searching all over WDW for it. Does anyone know if they sell it at the BC marketplace?

Does anyone know what is the fee that the BC charges to ship/hold a box, since it's a convention resort? I would like to send something as a surprise for the kids but I didn't see what the fee from the resort is. And does anyone know where or how I would pick it up once I check in? Thanks

Hi all, sad to say I cancelled my YC room for October as the savings at the Dolphin was just a better deal for us . I wish our week was included in the RO discounts but it wasn't so I could try the YC but maybe next time

I can be removed from the Bog list but we will be by for dinner at Capt Grill !!
