Just found a "store" on ETSY that sells Disney scented candles…I just bought "Beach and Yacht Club" scent! Can't wait to see if it can tide me over until Sept 24th when I smell the real deal!!!

First Stay at YC!

Hi, all. I have been following this thread for a few days now and am happy to announce DH and I will be at YC October 13-16. We will be celebrating our 15th anniversary and attending MNSSHP and F&W and then transferring over to IOA & US for three nights. I am SO EXCITED! We'll be taking advantage of all YC has to offer by spending time at F&W, and we have ADRs at Yachtsman and Captain's Grille. I can't wait. Let the countdown begin!

I had read that (about the switch to Joffrey) and was considering not bringing the Melitta pods this time. I think you just convinced me.

Unfortunately, we have heard that there is a new policy at the resort that only spa guests are permitted to use the health club lockers and showers because when it was open to everyone, the place was getting trashed.

So it isn't an issue of guests being able to use it on checkout day, but being able to use it period.

I'm not sure I have heard of anyone actually being denied a request to use the area, but we have been told that is the current policy, which is why we are looking for confirmation.



yup, I'm one that will be interested in hearing for sure what the policy is! If we can use to spa area, great. If not, we'll manage by using the restrooms on check out day. If we can go tent camping as a family I'm sure the BC restrooms will not seem like a "hardship". LOL.
Edited to add....... TODAY IS OUR 100 DAY-OUT DAY!! DD and I made our 100 link paper chain countdown. Its hanging but I made the mistake of using Dollar Store tape to close the individual chains. All day long they've been popping open one at a time. Oh well, gives the family something to laugh at! Mom went cheap again.... fail! Haha

Those sound like very respectable research assignments.

And for the rest of you who are wondering... I just like to keep things light while I dispense the occasional useful tidbit. I'm not really one of those nut jobs that runs around the lobby of the Beach Club with zip lock bags trying to capture the scent for posterity's sake. Teena would shoot me!

Edited to add: that DawnMaree really does drag a butler and Grey Poupon to Columbia Harbor house to save a table for lunch. I wasn't lying about that.....
as proof I've included this picture of her Butler with some Grey Poupon:

This is my first post on this thread I believe. I literally just got off the phone with Disney and was able to change my reservation from Pop to Yacht Club! It originally wasn't available with the CM discount, but I decided to check. Got standard view June 12-17. So excited! We are going for my birthday and Star Wars Weekends so its going to be super convenient! Now to research all the possible dumpster views we may get!

A lot of firsts for us, first time staying at a Deluxe resort, first split stay, first visit to the dark side, and first time driving instead of flying!! Woohoo! Can't wait!
Got it!

I'll make the adjustment to your listing

Planning on hitting Epcot for 2 FP rides and then the rest of the day is at the Pool! Also excited for our FP for the new Seven Dwarf's Mine Train on Sunday.
Have a blast!

I am so excited I want to dance and scream!! Our last trip we were going to stay at the YC, but at the last minute he really wanted the GF again. And it wasn't all that great trip, so he was "Disney Disilliioned". So I've been pricing out what it would be for 2016 (obviously just ball parking) with the current discounts and at first we picked WL, but it's actually just a bit cheaper to stay at YC / BC with a discount. Okay by me! So he said to me today, if you could only go to Disney one last time, where would you stay?

And that sealed the deal. So I am SOOOOOOOO excited to read all of your posts and see all of your pictures and learn as much as I can about both resorts. (and mostly live vicariously through all of you for 2 years till we get to go!) Not sure if it will be YC or BC, but who cares, right??


Glad you will be hanging out with us for a spell.

Would you like me to pencil you in for 2016, or wait?

So, after much discussion, it looks like we will be back next June! I can't wait!!!
back!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list we keep on Page 1.

The lockers look like to be the size of a high school locker. You input a code ( I have a pic of the lock - oops forgot a pic of the instructions - will get that when I leave SAB ) . They are located in the tall grey structure that is right where the BC /YC meet -( near beaches and cream for another reference )

Hope that helps!
Thank you, again!!!

Not sure what the rules on posting a link or ETSY info here- is there a "store" name or number? I'm not really familiar with ETSY, but I kind of know what it is.

Let us know what you think of the candle!

Where are you staying for the "Dark Side" portion of your trip? I have been to both Portofino (liked it) and Hard Rock (LOVED IT)

Check out this link- views at the Beach and Yacht Club by view category

look at the last couple of pages, too, I can't remember if I have linked all of the posts there yet.

What will the view from my room be?

Effective with reservations on January 1, 2011, the view categories at the Beach and Yacht Clubs were reclassified into 3 booking categories:

Standard view- parking lot or rooftops
Garden view- something green- trees or courtyard
Lagoon or Water view- lake or pool


I started up two View Threads in the Resort Photo Subforum:

Beach Club Room Views

Yacht Club Room Views


The purpose of these threads is to give some samples of rooms in various view categories (standard, garden, lagoon/pool) at the Yacht and Beach Clubs.

The etsy link was actually in the blog that I posted yesterday (top 10 Disney scents). I ordered one too, and she has several other Disney type scents for sale. I will let you all know if it comes close to the lobby scent! She's probably getting all of these unexpected orders with the mention on the blog haha

Confession: Everyone knows that DawnMaree just has her butler save the table all day. They tried to take him on the Haunted Mansion ride once and he almost didn't make it back, so he has to stay put.

Dah-ling... I am so the epitome of healthy eating so I can totally see how people would think that. And back off my Butler!

Hey! I said, BACK OFF MY BUTLER! Since we are a family of 5, I totally need him to accompany me as my partner on certain attractions. He was quite sweet in the Haunted Mansion as he was singing The Phantom of the Opera in my ear. I had to shush him when we were in the graveyard so I could hear the Grim Grinning Ghosts better.

Finally caught up reading all the posts! It's funny I think I saw teena in the first BC video I watched! Hope your doing well! This is my 1st post on this and We are going on our 1st family vacation to disney on 11/9-11/15 (free dining! Yay!) and staying at the BC in a water view. We originally were booked at the poly but switched just recently do to all of the construction that will be at that resort during our stay. We are super excited for BC because we were having the hardest time choosing between the 2 resorts. Now it is an easy decision, BC! To be honest I am not too familiar with anything at the BC because we have 1. Never stated there before 2. No family that has stayed there. It will be Me, DH, DS (4), DD (2) & DS (1) and I hope this is a right fit for us. Just hoping my kids aren't too young to enjoy epcot/ HS. We did do all of our ADRs (except 2 in MK) in epcot (3), HS (2) & BC (1). I'm just hoping the buses to MK aren't to bad with a double stroller and 3 toddlers. This is my family's 1st vacation and I'm getting a little OCD about making everything perfect!
