You have to hit the secret panel and a hidden room will be revealed that has Johnny Depp, Matthew Mc-Come-Here-Hunny and that hunky guy Scott keeps stationed by the pool. (I forget his name... Dawn would know!)

There are also bunk beds for the overflow guests as we never know who will be having a crisis upon departure day and will decide to run away from their families and live vicariously at the Beach Club.

My favorite new addition to this room are the secret reach through panels that eliminate the need to walk all the way over to club level to procure a snack. You just wave your hand in front of this panel, it slides open and you are reaching through from the back wall to grab some bacon wrapped hummus or what ever it is that is out. Some speculate that this is why the food disappears so quickly, almost sight unseen at times!

And from the FAQ archives, I have dusted off the blueprints of said Fantasy Suite

Ninja and Dee, too funny! I remember all of that!

Floridagirl, I'm reading your trip report and really enjoying it! Good to hear that Neil was great as always. He's really the star of BC CL!

What's the latest on the BC club lounge renovations?

*nervous*

The "I rip all the whimsy and Disney Magic out of hotel rooms" designer has struck again!

On the BWI board, the first photos posted today of the new room decor there, and for me, with BWI being in a neck-and-neck race with YC/BC for my favorite resort, I'm so disappointed! It seems thrown together, mismatched, and like at the GF, it looks like you could buy most of the room appointments at Target!
(No judgement on Target btw...just not what I expect in a room charging $400+/night.)

Whoever this designer is, must be stopped! No really.
He/she is getting his/her hands on our beloved BC/YC next!

Oh how wonderful the day dreams of the Fantasy Suite with the Grey Goose Slushie machine right next to the Illuminations viewing area...

I am one of the most tolerant people in the world when it comes to all things Disney. I love just about every inch of the place unconditionally, but I agree with you Scott, that décor is really uninspiring. It really doesn't say Disney, other than the splash of Boardwalk on the curtains.

Could be worse though - the bedspread could be a larger than life image of the pool slide (shhhh, don't say the word "c_ _ _ n".)

Unfortunately I did not think to ask. Hopefully someone else can give us an update.

Neil was really great on our last trip in September, my daughter lives in Wesley Chapel near Tampa and Neil is from that area also so we had a nice conversation with him. On this last trip he was there again and he remembered us because of the Tampa connection.

We were in the lounge having some snacks when I got the text that our room was ready, so when I went out to the CM desks, Neil was there. I told him that I had received a room number and it was 5643. I knew that there weren't any Deluxe CL rooms on the 5th floor so I asked him if this was an upgrade and told him my room number. He asked to see my text message so I showed him and he seemed to be excited for us!!! He asked where the rest of my party was and I told him they were in the lounge. He went into the lounge with me and told my group that he was escorting us to our room He gave us a very detailed tour and made us feel special.

We left my new favorite resort (YC) for CBR today. I'm less than inspired. Between the lack luster accommodations and dreary weather, we aren't feeling very magical. I'm hoping a good nights sleep and a sunny morning will help us make the most of the rest of our vacation. All those who recommended doing the moderate first and then deluxe, you were right...
We did not have a choice this trip, but if we ever switch categories again we will definitely do it this way. All in all, it really has been a wonderful trip and we've made many more Disney memories!

So, I have an ADR for Tusker House for breakfast tomorrow at 10am. How much time should I plan to travel out to AK to make it on time? I'm not even sure where to catch the bus.

Thanks!

I think if you are out at the stop by 9 am you should be all set. The ride to AK is about 15 minutes, the walk from the AK bus stop to the restaurant is about 20-30 minutes depending on how fast you walk. That leaves an allowance of a 15 minute wait for the bus, which I think is sufficient for that time in the morning.

Are you BC? To get to the bus stop, you go out the front of the lobby (parking lot side, not lakeside) and follow the sidewalk on the left, past the antique car and turn the corner (left) to find the bus stop.

Thanks! We are BC so the bus stop info helps!

We almost always take a stroll through the International Gateway on our Epcot day's and enjoy the YC/BC beauty and DH always swoons over SAB! We couldn't pass up the magical deal, so we booked it! I am so scared this is going to ruin me for life with staying elsewhere (non-deluxe) To be able to go as often as we do we really aren't able to swing a deluxe trip every few months but if this deal happens every year then maybe we can make it a once a year thing we are SO excited!


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

Leaving today! We'll be hopping on a cruise ship tomorrow, then after a week we will get off and drive up to the Darkside for a couple of days, before ending our trip with a week at YC. So excited!

See you guys on the beach....
