    Thanks, Dee and Medicgirl

    Our flight isn't until 7:30 that evening so we will probably wander around Epcot or DHS fir the first part of the day, then hit the pool in the afternoon, change, and take DME back to reality. Sigh

    I stopped by the Boardwalk Bakery the other night and the manager said it's Joffrey's. They grind it fresh every morning.

    How about Kouzzina on the Boardwalk? Or Bluezoo at the Dolphin? The Captain's Grille reviews are worrying, aren't they? We have always liked it in the past, but the pictures of food from there recently...ack, sad!

    I just wanted to let you YC lovers know we had a great visit. We had a stay at the BC back in 2006. While I liked it then I didn't really care if we went back. We've stayed at all the Deluxe resorts now except for the CR. We usually stay CL, but we had a great time without it this trip.

    We went for my daughter's birthday. The MK resorts were a must when they were younger, but now that they are 12,14 & 18 the YC is the way to go. They all loved it as well. I will say I didn't start out feeling the love. Our room was in the last wing (2030), so a hike. We did utilize the side doors, and once we got the feel for the location not so bad. I didn't really care for the view at first (looked out at trees), but then enjoyed sitting on the balcony having a drink with my husband.

    The forecast called for rain, but it was quiet nice. We had a great time at SAB. I found I really liked it this time, much more than when they were younger. They could go do their thing and I wouldn't have to worry. I did notice that when we went Saturday around 5pm they weren't checking for ID's.

    We had a fun birthday dinner at B&C, grabbed some food at Hurricane Hannah's and watched the Derby and enjoyed some dinner at the Crew's Cup Lounge.

    I wish we had more time to spend at the resort, but am thankful we can stop by for dinner now & then since were in the area.

    So can BCV guests use the refillable mug station at boardwalk bakery? Aren't you supposed to just use your home resort? Not sure about the Nescafé so I'd like to know where my good coffee options are in the morning!

    Or as we call it around here "The Magical Depress"

    This year is the first time we have a full last Disney day and late flight leaving Florida, so we may be following a similar agenda on our final day.


    Thanks for your review and comments about the resort. Glad you enjoyed your stay!


    That would be fantastic! Thanks.

    I don't mind posting my email address here: beachclubdee at yahoo.com

    I only use this address for Beach Club business and to correspond with bankers from Nigeria who want to give me stacks of money.

    Two things relating to food-

    First, swan/dolphin "walkup" questions - we have done walkup for breakfast and dinner for nearly every restaurant at swan/dolphin at some point or another. The only exception is character bfast at garden grill (just never tried, it may be fine). Your question was specifically bfast, most of which is at dolphin- we have never done anything other than walkup both for picabu (which is counter service anyway) and for the "fancier" bfast buffet at dolphin right next to picabu (forgetting name right now)..

    For diiner on arrival-sat, may 11- some variation of sampling the "world" at epcot country pavilions and the special food kiosks for flower/garden- our son is 3, so will be relatively early, nopefully not too rowdy of crowd yet

    Thank you! Got a return email today from IPO regarding dining reservations. All changes were made just as I asked. Sigh....so nice.

    Question about the lazy river...can children wear swim arms or use noodles or rings? I guess adults for that matter, too. Can adults use rings or floats?

    Does this happen a lot? We are staying in a Garden View (BC) the week after Thanksgiving and was hoping and praying for a discount of some sort.

    Thank you magicalmoments4! My sunken treasure recipe was waiting for me when I got home today. Just the thing to put a little pep in my step after an exhausting Derby weekend in Kentucky :)
