The May-June in the title is just to show when the posts were made. It's a popular thread and they only seem to last about 3 months before a new one is made

Hello! Just got to BC this afternoon and it's been good so far. Had lunch at Hurricane Hannah's and a storm came up quickly and it really felt like a little hurricane.

Do I remember reading something that you can see the Hollywood Studios fireworks from here? Is it anything special once the Star Wars weekend happens?

I know this might be taboo to post on here but anyone have any info for the dark side (universal) possibly adding a 2 night stay before or after disney... What would be best, before disney or after?? My husband works for comcast and they get a discount. I'm starting to get anxiety over this whole trip!

Just curious why you are not a fan of online check in... I've never done it!

DD15 is bring a friend this summer and now a few other families have asked us to go in April 2015 for Spring Break so I get to plan a trip 10 months out instead of 12 months so that helps..but I do get pretty sad depression when it is over...This year as a surprise, after we check out of US/IOA, I am going to AKL for a surprise night before we head home. Girls think we are going to the airport, but alas one last surprise!!!!! I can't leave Florid from universal property....just wouldn't be right...
I am not complaining by any means but this time I planned it in such a short time span (Feb-June) that I felt the wait went by too fast! We went when my son was 5 and we promised him that we'd be back when he was 10. Well DH went on a business trip to Disneyland in January and said that we need to go back sooner than originally planned, he got bit by the dis bug! Lucky for me we ended up booking for this summer and I just can't believe it's almost here! I will go through withdrawal big time!!

On Star War weekends there are special fire works. We watched them from our balcony at the BC. They were really good.

This past July we did 3 nights at US/IoA followed by 4 nights at the Beach Club. The reason we did Disney last was so we could meet up with our favorite CM, who was away earlier in the week, but I have heard it recommended to go to the "darkside" last. If you are staying on site, you will have front of the line privileges at the end of your trip when you are probably tired. Also, you will get to use the Magic Express on arrival and avoid the Tragical Depress back to the airport.

We used a car service to take us from the airport to the Hard Rock Hotel, and then from the Hard Rock to the Beach Club.

I'm most excited about SAB. We've eaten at CMC (H's fav) every trip and my girls ALWAYS ask about SAB and now they can finally go in!!!

We're keeping the BC part a secret. I can't wait for them to thin that we're leaving only to hop over to another resort AND go to MVMCP!

We will depart CSR on a Saturday and we're using that entire day to get to know the resort -- so hopefully the weather works with us! Our plan is to have a quick breakfast in the club lounge at CSR and then head over to the BC. I doubt our room will be ready, but at least we can enjoy the resort while we wait.

I'm going to make a conscious effort not to "wish away" our CSR stay, as it's our first time staying there, too -- but I can't wait to finally stay at the BC!!!
What a great surprise for your girls. I stayed at CSR once and really enjoyed it. While nothing compares to SAB the pool at CSR is really nice and not a bad place to spend an afternoon. It sounds like a great trip all around.

Just line up behind me, Buzzy the fly, your Beach Club Resort guy. I'm like a pool groupie. I get there early, start stealing everyone's maraschino cherries from their drinks and then I eventually pass out until it's time to leave. It's a win win for everybody as you get my company and I get the fruit in your beverage.

Signed, your pal Buzzy the fly, the Beach Club bon vivant!
