    My DW surprised me with the line “why don’t we go to Disney World for our anniversary” so we are heading back in a little less then 2 weeks (Oct 23rd to the 27th). We’ve stayed at the YC so many times it’s like a second home. The wonderful CM from CRO marked our reservation as an anniversary too.

    So, I guess my question is… Is there anything new going on at the YC since last December? This trip was planned so quickly I feel like I haven’t had a chance to research everything. I saw that there is renovation going on at the BC but has it started at the YC yet? Any particular room area that I should ask for?

    Thanks
    Ty

    We'll be there the same time. We LOVE YC/BC!

    We were just able to switch our reservation from BWI to YC. I kept trying to get an AP rate for YC or BC and someone must have cancelled because I just got it the other day.

    It's a surprise trip for our kids - our first time to MNSSHP, Food and Wine Festival, DH running the TOT 13K Race and an early celebration for my birthday! I'm soooo excited!

    The only place we even considered was the GF but they didn't have any rooms available with the pin code so we are staying at "home"

    Our anniversay is Oct 22 so our arrival is only one day off :cool1:

    TyGuy, congratulations on the anniversary. Last year at the GF they really took care of us on our 30th. Hope they do something special for you too at the YC.

    If you look over at the BC/YC board you will see that the BC is going through renovations right now (running a little behind) but the YC is not scheduled for work until early 2009 so you shouldn't have any issues. Hope you post over on the BC/YC board when you get back and tell us how the trip went.

    Our YC room beginning of August was in great shape!!! At that time they were sanding and refinishing YC lobby floors.

    Just love Y&BC. Congratulations on your anniversary!!

    I don't think so. But everyone has their own views. But the Yacht Club is not in rehab as yet.

    All I can say is what I was told no rehab until 2009. I didn't see anything being done when I went up to 5th floor to visit friends. Maybe you saw a picture of the Beach Club or BWI room?? MHO

    For those who think Yacht Club resort has been rehab or under it. I received this for my upcoming trip. Not until next year.

    Thank you for your email. Please rest assured that there is no rehab
    work due to take place at the Yacht Club until Spring of next year.
    This information has been confirmed with the rehab manager.

    Please do not worry, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Yacht
    Club in November.

    Have a Magical Day!
