Don't worry it is absolutely freezing here in MA today
Just booked YC CL standard view, do these have daybeds? I was told by CRO that they did so I did not make request.
51 days to go until my very first stay at the beach club!
MeThatsWho, thanks for the report and continue enjoying your trip. Looks like slightly warmer weather is around the corner!
We ALWAYS beat the boat. And we're walking with a tiny just-turned-6-year-old.
Thanks for posting the trip update. That's alright about going over to the dark side... the Yacht Club deserves some love too! I like to think of the Beach Club/Yacht Club as a married couple, like Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. The Beach Club is all Lucy, adventurous and loud, where as The Yacht Club is totally Ricky, stately and refined. The Yacht Club knows better but the Beach club likes to PARTY!
Rumor has it that conventions of Cheerleading and Dance groups have booked every week for the rest of the year! Pack your pom poms and prepare for the invasion!
I am one of those people on the boat that looks at the people racing on the shore and thinks "Boy do they look hot. They must have had too much coffee this morning". I'll be the one waving at you as my hair blows in the wind and I pretend I'm on my own private WDW yacht!
I'm not sure that they all have daybeds. CRO is notorious for giving incorrect info. I wish they would just say "I don't know" instead of making up answers!
My advice is to contact IPO or the CL CMs and ask them. If the answer is that they do not all have daybeds, I would add the request to your reservation. Remember, if you do not get a room with a daybed and none are available, you can request a rollaway cot, free of charge.
Quick question. We usually stay at BC, and one or two mornings during our stay we take a walk and get some munchies at the Boardwalk Bakery before heading to the parks. Since we are staying at the Yacht club, do we walk towards Swan & Dolphin to get there, or take the same route past BC to Boardwalk? I've been looking at the maps and I can't figure out which way would be quicker.
Just made BC reservations for May 26 - June 1.
Our second visit to the Beach Club, but first time with the kids at this resort.
Thank you. How do you reach the CL CMs ?
The reason I asked about conventions is that the YC appears to be booking up fast for that first full week of August compared to the BC. At the YC there are no standard regular rooms and only standard CL rooms available. Okay, so the gazebo view it is - (if the family decides on YC - still wavering) - is one floor better than another? Told you all I'd be a pain in the tuchus!
Someone will know the answer to this- I don't.
But I wanted to add a question- who knows the dates of the Boardwalk Bakery refurb? I'm sure I could find it if I looked, but hoping someone knows without having to research.
Here's an email address. This should only be used by guests who have a confirmed Club Level reservation
Don't ask me why there is a space between the o and the m. I don't know and I can't fix it and it drives me crazy!!!. (I'm a teeny bit sensitive about this)
But the email address works.
I'm pretty sure that it is quicker to walk counterclockwise around Crescent Lake (toward Swan/Dolphin) then to walk clockwise, toward Beach Club from the YC to get to the bakery, although I don't think the difference in either direction is very significant. Either way, the walk is lovely.
Thanks! According to Allears it is set to open April 26th (and hoping it actually does open that date!!) I'm sure we will test it out when we go
I booked a deal through Magical Travel Vacations. I got CL at the BC for just under $290 a night, including taxes. (no passes) This was cheaper than the standard room at rack rate. They had/have blocks of rooms at the YC/BC and the GF for the "Labor Day" deal. I just googled them to get the web site and emailed them for a quote.
I think you are booked the right times. If you go earlier in August it will be more crowded.
Now that is....HILARIOUS! What an awesome, and strangely accurate, description Ninja Mom!
Hello fellow New Englander!
Looks like our dates overlap! Maybe we'll bump into each other in the lounge!
I love, love, love this idea!
Oh, if only I had thought to snap a picture of the dumpster view we had at the YC in 2010. Luckily we were only in that room for a mere 10 minutes. I think the CMs on club level saw the faint glisten of a tear in my eyes and had mercy on me and my husband. We were celebrating our 15th anniversary and our only request had been a "pleasant view". They very graciously upgraded us to a nicer view.
And, Dee, I've always wondered....you do such an AWESOME job on this thread. If you don't mind me asking....how did you get the role as caretaker of the YC / BC thread?? However it happened, they certainly picked the right person for the job!!! And, if that question is too personal, just ignore it and I'll never ask again. (But, I'll still continue to admire your quick wit, your responsiveness, and your accuracy...so there!)
Here's hoping!! I'll be the one with the tall DH who will most likely be wearing a Yankees hat, and the two perfectly behaved children. Ha, Ha, Ha!! In reality, it was just last night that I put my hands on my hips and said, "Now, how are we supposed to take the two of you to the club lounge when you can't stop fighting every night at the dinner table?!? You know, it's not too late to take both of you off the reservation." Aahh...not my finest mothering moment. (But, it did the trick )
Ha! Well, my hubby will either be decked out in RED SOX gear or his famous Jack Skellington t-shirts...and my girls will be trying to stuff cookies in their pockets (politely, of course)...
She drew the short straw. Taking care of this thread is part of her work release program from the PTA prison system. She served hard time in the bake sale unit, was moved to school trip chaperone... and after she didn't try to make a break on her one trip she was given the yellow jump suit and made a trustee of the thread.
She twitches a lot, especially after her fourth cuppa coffee, but prison officials don't believe she is going to get paroled any time soon, so I think we are safe!
That's my story and I'm sticking with it!
