Has anyone been recently who can report what time Ale and Compass opens in the morning??

Also, I am so buying one of those candles! I am a firm believer that Bath and Body Works Rainkissed Leaves is a spot-on Beach Club Lobby scent. I realize it has been discontinued in stores, but you can still buy it online. I just purchased 12 bottles of the soap and three of the lotions so I can slather it on wherever I am and feel like I'm at the BC. Boy that sounds kind of weird!!

Hey DawnMaree, can I please borrow your Butler next week? I promise I'll show him a good time! Wink wink! I've been known to entertain a certain pirate in the hot tub at SAB on previous trips. Cough cough....JD.......I'll be sure to ply your Phantom with plenty of Sunken Treasures. OK?

Broken Pinky Toe Daughter Update: we found out yesterday that not only does she have a broken pinky toe but she also has two stress fractures in her foot. The doctor gave her a post-op shoe to wear but my crazy daughter prefers the big clunky walking boot. Swimming isn't forbidden but she needs to be careful because if she hits her foot on something it's going to hurt like a son of a biscuit. Megan says her foot feels better in the boot than not wearing it so the confirmation that she still needs walking apparatus isn't shocking. She is a junior bridesmaid in my SIL's wedding on June 28. I'm petrified to try and squeeze her foot into a fancy shoe with her injury.

Happy Friday!!!!!! 5 days until we leave and 6 until we are at BC!!!!!!!! Woo hoo!!

Rainkissed Leaves is my favorite scent! And I agree......it totally brings me back to the BC lobby! Is it on sale yet? I usually stock up on it during their big June/December sale.

I'm very reluctant to let you borrow my Butler, but I guess so. Treat him well and have him save my beach chair for me when I arrive at the end of June.

I hope your daughter heals fast. I wouldn't push her foot into a fancy shoe. I've broken my foot before (and toe). It's really about comfort when trying to heal with the toes especially. Are you able to get a different pair of shoes for her? I would hope so...

I just ordered some from ETSY too! I hope it smells just like it. I am obsessed with Bath & Body Works Rainkissed Leaves! Smells amazing!!

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



Yes, please add me to the list!! we'll be there in June 2016, but I'm not sure of the exact week yet....but it'll make me feel like it's more real!

I can't even tell you how excited I am to stay here. This is just my dream resort... the whole package....location, decor, atmosphere and that awesome pool!

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.

.
Thanks I've been going through this thread and all the links. I was joking about the dumpster views, since I had seen that one "worst view ever" in the views thread. We're just super excited to be in the Epcot/studios area. We own DVC and our home is Boardwalk and since we were out of points decided we'd like to head across the lake and have access to storm along bay!

I'm sorry I never post anything but thank you so much for this incredible thread! We leave today for 2 nights at my sister's in Dallas. All 13 of us are meeting there then fly out Sun 7:30. I can not wait to check in at Beach Club in about 49 hours! My husband and I rented points at BCV, Nov 2010 but besides that we have always stayed at the value or moderates. I can not wait for my official deluxe stay! I'm so anxious to get there and find out where our rooms are. We booked garden view and the only request we made was for the 5 rooms to be located together. Fingers crossed!

So, it's definitely not available in the stores right now? Is it gone forever or will it be back? Never heard of it but I'd love to try to find it.

You'll have to let us know if they can get your family all together. It sounds like a great family vacation.

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)


We stayed at Hard Rock for 4 nights in the past and loved it. DH is a musician and the kids loved the pool! However, we are considering Portofino or Royal Pacific for this stay. I'm leaning towards Portofino because Royal Pacific is our most likely choice when we take the kids in 2015 and DH loves Italian food, though we LOVE the HRH pool!

It will probably come down to best rate with Annual Passholder discount and a King sized room category, since I know we'll be going back within the year and DH and I would prefer a room with one king sized bed. Right now, that's looking like Royal Pacific, but I haven't 100% decided yet, so you could sway me to Portofino!
