I'm curious how you liked it too. We did Cocoa Beach for a day on our last trip and liked it a lot....although we went in November and the water was a bit cool. We did a public beach right past the cruise lines port and they had a restaurant there, showers and a restroom. It was a faster drive than our GPS had it at too!

Last time we were as far from the lobby as you can get and we'd like to be closer this time. Is this too much for a request? I think I need to pare it down. Maybe just the first 2? 1. Lakeside Courtyard View 2. Close to the lobby 3. 1st or 2nd floor
Bumping this so it doesn't get buried! Thanks!

Hi everyone! I'm thinking about booking 1 night in July after we do 2 nights (CSR Business class) and 3 at Vero Beach. My dad has some dietary restrictions and I didn't know if the lounge food offered some healthy options. For breakfast he will do cereal and berries (which I know CSR offers) but didn't know if YC CL offered that as well? Any help would be great! We are going to Epcot at night so I thought it would be nice to be close and walking distance. Thanks for any advice!

For breakfast YC usually offers cereals, fruit, Danish, bagels, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, muffins and some type of bread (like banana bread, etc. Hope that helps!

This is the third time my husband has driven to Cocoa Beach with the kids. I went with them once. They love it! I have them pack a lunch, either sandwiches from the Marketplace or bought at Subway. They always make a point to stop at Ron Jon's. Last year they slapped a Ron Jon sticker on my car as a surprise. I personally don't want to take any time away from my BC to go with so I usually stay back. But my husband loves the ocean and paddle boarding. In fact, they came back with a paddle board from Ron Jon's this year. They said it was cheaper to buy one than rent....oh ok. ;-)

I don't mind sending the family off while I stay back at BC with whomever doesn't want to go.

Usually they leave around 10am and get home around 6pm. It's about an hour each way.

Hope this helps!

We stayed at Aluani in February what they did there was have cast members go around they took the towels folded them and put on the back of a chair, when they made rounds (about 1 hour) if towel was still roll on the back of the chair they removed them, making the chair available for another guest, and if they had personal items they bagged them and put them in a guest relations booth. This could be one suggestion to stop chair hogs, especially if they were leaving the pool area.

Thank you for the info on the beach, I am on the fence if we should take a day away from BC to do the beach. How old are your kids? Mine will be 9
& 7

BC is one of my favorite resorts! We have been lucky enough to have stayed at both BC & BCV. We love the easy walk to Epcot & boat to the Studios. We also enjoy walking around the boardwalk in the early morning & later in the evening.
Having said that, I too am interested in possibly going to the beach. I just never seem to want to leave "the world" for an entire day while there though.

That would work.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

If you're from a place where you and your kids have never seen the ocean, then you owe it to yourselves and them to get to the beach. You're only an hour's drive away. As "magical" as WDW is, there's something really majestic about the ocean, and the only way to know what I'm talking about is to see it for yourself.

I agree completely. The ocean is truly magical and majestic.

For breakfast there are plenty of healthy choices: cereal, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs. There is always fresh whole fruits like apples, bananas and oranges out through out the day

Can anyone make some suggestions for our last morning? Our flight is at 1:45 which makes me believe we'll have to catch ME around 10:45? My husband thinks he and my DS will have time for the pool but that seems like a stretch. I would do the Cape May breakfast but we did that last time we were there. Maybe the boardwalk for the little bikes although maybe that's too early... any suggestions are welcome, thanks!!

Quick Dining suggestions?

Really looking forward to BCV in 12 days. But wondering where you can grab a quick breakfast without going to Cape May?
