Just suppose that maybe someone doesn't like Midori or the taste of melon...just suppose.

Is there a recommended 2nd choice for an unofficial adult beverage at YC/BC?

The Sunken Treasure isn't too melon-y tasting. But if you really don't think you'll like it, try to Piña CooLava. It's my second favorite drink. I should have ordered that instead of the Black cherry Lemonade I ordered. It tasted like cough syrup. I think I need to go down to the lounge and get a beer to wash the flavor down.

Vodka is definitely needed in the lounge. Mix some of that with the delicious Stormalong Bay Breeze drink they have in there now next to the iced tea and lemonade and it would be the new Sunken Treasure! YUMMY!!! The SAB Breeze is a mix of sprite and something else....cranberry juice maybe?

Off to get that beer.......

Stormalong Bay Breeze- Sprite, Cranberry and Pineapple Juice, I believe.

BYOV- I bet vodka (or rum) would be really good with this.

The unofficial drink of the Yacht & Beach Club laundry room?

I have a strange question, from the newbie YC/BC dork.....we're absolutely unfamiliar w/ the YC, but we decided to stay here our next trip. We had stayed at the GF, but I really have always wanted to stay at either the BC or YC. So my DH gave in for the next trip.

In looking at the layout, it looks like if you're on the farthest side (of the YC for example) it's a hike to walk to Epcot. We're probably going to get a garden view. Can I request 'closer to lobby or closer to SAB' ? Is that something that is even possible? Am I just making too much out of it? Never having been there in person, it's hard to guage from the pictures. (but both resorts just look so good to me!!) I would appreciate any help!!!

We decided on the YC because of the full balconies, but the more I am on this thread, the more it just seems like that doesn't even matter..... that both resorts are just so beautiful. it seems like I can't go wrong with either one, that's for sure.

Request close to lobby.

Any word on the refurbs that are supposed to be happening? I know beach club is supposed to be first and we are looking at Bc for our December trip. Is this going to be an issue?

On page one there is a picture of a particularly nice looking dessert. Is bar shaped with a custard/pudding looking base, what appears to be cream, and then a chocolate cookie like top, and a raspberry. Where would one find this and is it still on the menu at said restaurant?

ps-is ok to add me to page 1

This is my first post here. I'm about to make myself crazy trying to decide what is best to list as a room request for our first trip to BC Water view Aug.2-Aug9,2014. I've been researching photos here and on lines. Still unsure. Here's my family history. We have always stayed Poly (4x's) but bc of construction decided it was time to try BC. We are so excited! Me, DH, DS17, DS14,DD12. DS17 uses a wheelchair almost all the time. I was unable to get a handicap accessible rm w the summer disc. They assured they would send up a tub chair and it would work w safety issues bathing. At Poly we always had a ground floor Roll-in either facing beach/lAke/or beautiful flowers. DS17 medication prevents him from being an early riser. Therefore, we always let him sleep in and take turns venturing out in the mornings til he wakes. Therefore, we found the ground fl nice w all the comings and goings. But it seems the best views are top floors if I'm not mistaken? We are welcome to balcony and something new. I'm just not sure. It's so nice to have a great view while relaxing and waiting for him to wake up. Does anyone have any recommendations? Sorry for my ramblings!

I don't have any more details other than what's in post #1 of this thread. But I can say that most likely the refurb will have zero affect on your trip. I have stayed at 4 WDW resorts while refurbs were going on and had no idea they were happening until I either heard CMs talking about it or during the survey when checking out when they asked if it was an issue. Disney is very good at keeping guests away from any areas they are working on.

The refurb (if it starts as scheduled) will begin in October on the fifth floor. After the fifth floor, they go to the fourth floor and do a section at a time. As like all Disney resorts, they do it in such a way that you probably won't even know it's going on. The noise part of the rehab is during the hours of 9 to 5 normally and that's when most people are away from the resort. And since it's section by section, it is doubtful you'll see or hear anything at all.

I've stayed at a number of Disney resorts during rehab and it has never been a problem or affected my stay in any manner whatsoever.

Since you booked a water view, my only request would be a full balcony since it sounds like you may use one. Only half the rooms have full balconies so by listing this as your one and only request, you have a better chance of getting one. If you list two requests (like high floor and full balcony), there's less chance of you getting both requests met. And even though you request a full balcony, you still might not get one. In that case, if it's really important to you, when you check-in, ask if your room has a full balcony and if they say no ... there was not one available today, tell them it's really important and if there is not one available now, then you would like a room change to a full balcony the next day.
