Wow! What a fantastic meet. It was so wonderful to meet and spend time with Y&BC friends. Really truly a wonderfully magical time!

You might want to check out page one of this thread as i think the answers can be found there however, i beleive the Keurig is the standard in most rooms, turn down service if you call and ask, and no newspapaer that I ever remember. I bet there are some laying around in CL though if you are staying on that floor. I'd go to page one just to check and see if my memory is correct but I am at work and just don't have the time right now. Wanted to get back to you on this though before it gets lost in the DIS meet updates.

Scott walked into the lobby at that moment so while I missed the official meet ( and Dee) we had a mini meet

It was great meeting you yesterday.. Sadly I was quickly immersed into reality today
It was really cool that we had a Sunken Treasure mini meet. I knew I could sneak up behind you and ask for that drink. You almost got whiplash from turning around so fast to see who knew how to order that! LOL!!!

Your kids were awesome at the meet last night. They were much better behaved than that Ninja Mom character who haunts this thread. They can come to our meets anytime!!

So as Dee briefly alluded to we had a 1 am fire drill at the hotel Sunday night. I ran into Dee and Rebecca in the stairwell as we made our exit. I was trying to convince everyone that it was really just a pajama party as everyone exiting was showing off some mighty spiffy sleepware. I don't think you'd see such put together pajamas at a Value resort

We were only out long enough for Ninja Mom to tell half the resort that she wasn't wearing any underwear and then it was time to go back in.

THEY HAVE FIXED THE PROBLEM WITH THE FIRE ALARM SYSTEM SO ALL IS WELL AND THERE NEED BE NO WORRIES. The staff at the Beach Club really did a professional job of handling our safety so that was great to see.

The Dis meet was awesome. I'd say it was a real hen fest but we had the guys there too and all had a great time. It's really saying something when the husbands can hang with all your BC/YC girl friends and still have a blast!

The next day Buzzy, Dee and I had an early, sunrise breakfast at Kouzinna. We sat outside and and enjoyed the beautiful views. After Dee left I said good bye to all the pictures on the wall of the Greek ancestors that I am not related to. I am going to miss Kouzina and I'm wondering how pasta pancakes are going to taste when that new Italian place takes over that location. As a consolation perhaps they will hang pictures of all the Italian relatives that I am not related to....
PS: I was Missing Nannette this morning!!!!!!

The weather down here is Hot Hot HOT so Missy and Franklin might want to turn on the heat at home to start pre gaming for the weather conditions. As we tour the parks we are in full mode of running from shady spot to shady spot and lingering in the gift shops until heat stroke subsides and you can move forward again.

Stormalong Bay is totally awesome in this weather with the water being neither to hot nor too cold. Dee and I stole some green buckets and shovels from some little kids so we could test out the sandy shallow play area. We just told the kids we were famous internet bloggers and we needed the buckets for research purposes. I had to stare down a 5 year old for a couple of minutes to get a bucket but then I screamed "Look! There's Elsa and Anna and she dropped it and ran to try and find them. Dopey Kid! Like Anna and Elsa would ever get a day off at the height of their popularity and vacation at the Beach Club.

Synchronized Pool Tube team practice was a bit of a disaster. The expert lifeguards at the resort got one look at us and made us start out on pool noodles until we could build up our proficiency and progress to pool tubes. There were many wipe outs and much water up the nose. Tomorrow I'm running back to Walmart to purchase clothes pins for our noses in an effort to stem the tide so to speak... I don't suppose all those Sunken Treasures were helping our equilibrium but they sure were helping morale!

So that's it for now. After the Dis meet it's all down hill from here. I'll just be trying to fast pass and survive the heat. Look for the lunatic hopscotching from shady spot to shady spot and gift shop to gift shop.

The coffee maker in the rooms are Cuisinart. There is a picture on the first page of this thread. The Presidential Suite is a Keurig. I think the other suites might be also but not sure.

I believe you can request turn down service but it is not guaranteed. We did not request it but we had turn down service every night while we stayed CL in Sept. but when we were in the Presidential Suite, we didn't get it

I saw newspapers on the credenza outside of the lounge doors.

Hope this helps.

We are all checked in. Waiting on a room so having lunch at Market Place. Family checking in next to us are not part of our little Dis family as they were asking about showering at the spa.

Thank you. My Kcup coffeemaker is manufactured by Cuisinart, so I am still undecided as to whether or not to bring my own kcups. I appreciate your response, though!

Thank you. I will inquire about turn down at check-in and check the first page.

I looked around this site and on the internet and it appears to be the same coffeemaker as we had at the Disneyland Resort July 2013. No K-cups. It used a pod much like a tea bag. Downside, not a fan of that coffee. The upside, I'LL BE AT DISNEY!

So excited. Driving down to Disney tomorrow (leaving at midnight) for what I hope to be a magical stay at the Yacht club. Stayed once before at a conference and loved it but never thought of spending my own money to stay there. The French Quarter has always been our home away from home, but I think that has now changed after we stayed at the Beach Club for the first time in March for my daughter's 21st birthday celebration and we were hooked. Can't wait to order a drink at Hurricane Hannah's and sit on the beach Thursday evening.

We hop in the boat with her. I'm thinking the odds of that happening are winning-the-lottery high. Trying to figure out how to paraphrase that line from Casablanca, but I need more coffee, I think.

The lounge will be done before that. But the actual room rehab isn't starting immediately after the lounge is done.

For us, it's pool time, Epcot, and Coral Reef. Breakfast with Cindy at her castle tomorrow.

Oh, and LOVING YC-CL.
Practically perfect in every way. For real.


I'm looking forward to your review of Coral Reef...

We saw each other again waiting to get on the mine train. I'm worried I'll get struck by lightening at some point because the odds of that seem higher.

Woop. Met Ninjamom. Our first mini-meet.
We have our room. We overlook the quiet pool. Our Magicbands have gone AWOL fortunately the TragicBands we were given at check in have now been replaced with coloured ones. Phew! Heading out to Epcot soon and Princess Storybook Dinner.
