Oh, you are such a great group! Thank you so much for all the congrat's! We had a terrible two years in and out of court. This is truly a blessing!
I spent years as a moderator for a very large group and it was not fun! Trust me I get it!
I edited my thread to add the link for the contest.. I hope everyone trys it!
And really, thanks again!
I'm always amused when someone says they are staying at Saratoga Springs, it's based off the city we live in! We visited it when we were down last, it was very "old" world Saratoga, not that we aren't still beautiful!
I love this thread.
We have 207 days left to go and are staying at the Beach Club for the first time.
Kids can not wait to get into SAB.
So sorry to hear about your leg! You had been working so hard towards your goal of returning to the Beach Club to run the ToT!
We are running out of colors, but I will use BLUE for my reply.
According to the time stamp on these pictures, they were taken around 2-3 PM on a day in July. Looks like there is some elbow room. I have a few other pictures I looked at showing this area near the waterfall without many people, but that was from 5-6 PM.
I think these pictures are of the pool in front of where Beaches & Cream or the YC walkway is, but not positive.
A little more crowded here, same time:
Doesn't look like you have an imminent trip according to your signature, but if I am wrong and you would like to be added to the Be Our Guest list, please let us know.
Let us know when you have booked.
I can think of three reason people may want to avoid the first floor
1) As others have mentioned, very slight possibility of critters
2) Rooms VERY near the lobby (don't even know if there are any) may experience a few extra folks walking by, maybe using the secret entrance/exit
3) This is the big one for me- I enjoy using a balcony and I don't think I would care for the exposure from a first floor patio.
It sounds like you need to determine if the accessibility of the lobby outweighs some of these issues.
How nice of you to try to make your mom's dream come true. If we can help you out along the way, please let us know!
Unfortunately, I don't know much about the villas, but others here do.
I think I welcomed you a few pages back, but just in case I am wrong:
As I mentioned, I am trying to get info on YC Deluxe, so far there isn't much there that I have found.
Yacht Club DOES have rollaway cots. I don't see why you couldn't get one for a Deluxe Room, unless it would increase the occupancy in the room beyond the legal limit.
Not sure if I have you on the Be Our Guest list or not. When is your trip?
That is fantastic!!!
So glad that you are planning to use your at the place we love so much!
And thanks for the reminder- I usually enter first thing in the morning, but I haven't done it yet, so I am headed there now.
OK friends- time to check the Be Our Guest list to make sure your info is listed correctly!!!
Post 15: Be Our Guest list
I'm keeping my fingers crossed you can stay with us!!!! If not, if you visit the BC while I'm working, please stop by and chat!!
I will reply in Orange
This is the area where they play the games so that's why people are hanging out there. Just by looking at this picture my "Spidey Sense" is telling me that a large game of Marco Polo has just broken up due to all of the 'fish out of water" on the pool deck
Also, in the back of the picture is the area where the giant pool slide ends. That far umbrella in the center is where the lifeguard who watches the slide area is stationed.
Can anyone tell me what kind of coffee maker they have in the standard rooms at YC?
Congrats!!! I wondered if anyone of the Dis members were goign to win one of those.
You will love planning a trip to BC/YC, except that the trip always ends up with ".......when can we start planning our next trip to BC/YC"
Do you have a trip booked or are you still in the planning stages??
Yes, I can answer your question (which was, in fact, MY very first question here on this forum)
The answer is Cuisinart Pod Machine
From the Other Useful Information Section on Page 1:
What kind of coffeemakers are in the resort rooms?
As of October 2011, the drip coffee makers in the BC and YC resort rooms were replaced.
The regular resort rooms and club level rooms (including Deluxe Rooms) now have the Cuisinart Double Pod Machines:
Thanks for the photos Rorey, Cinderumbrella and MickeyT!
Here is what I believe are in the rooms currently. Anyone who has been there more recently, please correct this info if it is wrong:
All regular (non-club level) rooms: Cuisinart Pods
All standard club level rooms, all views (standard meaning non-suite), including Deluxe Club Level Rooms: Cuisinart Pods
Suites (1 BR, 2 BR, VP, Presidential Suites): Keurig K-cup
Beach Club Villas- Mr. Coffee-type makers (4 cup for studio, 10 cup for 1BR, 2BR)
I think this applies to both BC and YC- again, let me know if I am wrong!
Thanks. Yes, we're booked for August.
Question: If the BC/YC is completely booked up, how busy is it at the resort? In the concierge lounge? I'm assuming that Disney amps up their service to make sure guests are taken care of.
I'm booked 8/31 through 9/7. I believe the resort is fully booked the Labor Day weekend only. Will it be ok?
Congrats! How exciting! I hope you get your wish and go to the Beach Club.
Congratulations! I hope you do get your dream visit to the BC. Please keep us in the loop when you hear back! My husband and I enter every day, and it's so nice to hear that people on the DIS are winning.
That's awesome!! I have entered this contest daily. Good to see someone who wins
Well I hope its ok... it was the only resort I could get into when I booked this vacation. I waitlisted BCV but it didn't come through. It's a marathon weekend!
I love Saratoga Springs, NY!! My husband was stationed there when he was in the Navy and I spent a summer there with him before we were married!! I have such fond memories!!! Laid on the ground across from SPAC one night after a Melissa Ethridge concert looking up at all the stars!!!
Yeah!!!! Congratulations!! That is awesome!!'
Congrats!!!! Sounds like you deserve it!!!
