    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!

    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!

    :hug:


    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:

    :welcome:

    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.

    ::goodvibes

    :welcome:

    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.

    :cool1:


    :welcome:

    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.

    :banana::banana::banana:

    I think I welcomed you a few pages back, but just in case I am wrong:

    :welcome:

    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.


    :welcome:

    Not sure if I have you on the Be Our Guest list or not. When is your trip?



    :woohoo:

    That is fantastic!!!

    So glad that you are planning to use your pixiedust: 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.

    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.

    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" :rotfl2:

    Have fun

    :welcome:

    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:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    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!

    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?
