    So excited to be joining this thread because it means I will actually be staying at the Yacht Club in August!!! Just got my confirmation on a super deal that could not be passed up. :cool1:

    I don't think I am even going to tell my boys about SAB, just surprise them. They are going to LOVE it! They are pool/ cool slide obsessed.

    Never visited and haven't even been near the Boardwalk area since 1998 when it was pretty new. So I now have to go back and read this whole thread! Pirate cruises, shipwrecks and secret doors...oh my!

    As others have said - no curtain, but usually tucked around a corner. Looks like this at YC:

    And this at BC:

    So while the noise is still a factor, we find the light isn't as much of a factor at YC/BC as at a mod.

    For example, here's POFQ, with the sinks at the end of the room:

    [​IMG]

    So the light goes straight into the room where the beds are located at most mods. But at YC/BC, the sinks are around the corner, so a little more tucked away. In this YC photo, I'm standing with my back to the balcony and the bathroom sinks are at the opposite end of the room, around the corner from the artwork hanging on the far wall:

    Checked in to BC yesterday! Booked CL GV and requested a day bed. Forgot to ask abour request or room type when we checked in (too busy sipping pinot noir and eating seared tuna and bacon wrapped scallops) so was thrilled to see a great view of SAB and the lagoon. Stand only balcony but wide enough for several of us. We also have a day bed. When we had a Deluxe CL room last trip, the day bed was basically made up into a bed, but this day bed actually has a mattress (already withe sheets) sort of built into the back. You pull a handle thing and it all flips into place. Cool and comfy. No complaints fromDS.

    Ate at Hacienda last night and loved it. They are not afraid of spice or flavor. Nice usual breakfast in CL lounge and fantaatic lunch at Tangerine Cafe which Id been wanting to try for years. Now chilling in the room before dinner at Flying Fish using our new Tables in Wonderland card!

    Thanks for the pictures pixarmom! Hadn't seen any from that view. I see what you mean about it being tucked behind. I think DH will survive :). Have a great evening!

    Excellent photo tour PixarMom!

    You captured what I was trying to explain. Nice to have the comparison photo from a mod.

    Looking at the BC/YC rooms, it's more like a standard hotel room we'd expect when staying elsewhere. I had never stayed in a hotel where there was just a curtain separating the wash area before staying at one of the lower level Disney resorts.

    I'm so excited to now have a reason for lurking on this thread! We booked BC GV for 10/21-25 (hoping to extend until the 26th but no GV available that night so far). This will be after four nights at AoA Cars suite. I've been a long time lurker to DIS and it has helped tremendously with our past three (four if you count just going to DTD during an offsite trip) visits. I will be traveling with my Army husband, 8yo DD and 5 yo DS, celebrating my 30th at F&W. My mom will be joining us for the first part of the trip at AoA and my dad for our BC stay. I've already learned tons after reading 96 pages and I can't wait to be able to contribute more to this thread! I'm looking forward to taking it easy on this trip after going commando (and therefore driving my husband crazy) on past visits. Thank you for such a wonderful FAQ and thread. Everyone that is active here is so helpful and welcoming! Can't wait to get to know you all more!

    We're running late this morning, so I have to be brief.

    Only one word can describe yesterday - crowded! Went to EP & MK, and we were stunned at how crowded both parks were. It actually felt as crowded as when we visited around NYE! Apparently the Brazilian tour groups have arrived. While I know a lot people complain about them in the main parks section, I didn't find them to be rude or witness anyone misbehaving. There just were a LOT of BIG groups. Hoping for smaller crowds today, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    On a positive note, we had a chance to see the PoC "Pirates Training" show for the first time. It was hilarious. I highly recommend it.

    Off to DHS this morning & MK again tonight for resis at BoG!

    Have a great day.:wizard:

    Hi All!!
    My family is coming back to the Beach Club May 18-25, staying CL for the 3rd time. We stayed CL the first time and have never looked back. Traveling with me is DH, DS12, DS8, and DD6.
    This a special trip for my DS12. He has a medical condition that is causing him to lose his hearing, and will be having surgery this summer to try and salvage some hearing. He is very nervous about this so we are hoping to use this trip to distract him. He is planning the whole trip with me and he will get to surprise his siblings the night before we leave, we are not telling them until then.
    Thanks so much to all who post in this thread! I have learned so much and laughed so much as I have lurked :goodvibes

    Here are some pics from our 2011 trip. Sorry for the large size. Can't find the option to change size in photobucket with their new interface.

    We will be at the BC CL in Oct. This will be our first time at BC. We usually stay at WL or GF, so excited to try an Epcot resort! Our group will be myself, DH, DS-18, and DD-15. My sis and her family will be in the villas there too.

    Thanks for posting the pictures! I know what is in those cabinets under the beverage cooler! That's where they keep the trays you can use to transport plates and beverages back to your room.

    I miss that cabinet!
