    I'm finally getting around to posting some pictures and news about my adult only weekend at the Yacht Club at the end of September. I was at WDW for a conference at the Contemporary, and my DW joined me for the final weekend. We were moved over to the Yacht Club for the weekend because the Contemporary was full.

    I went over to check-in Friday morning at 6:00am. Our room wasn't ready (I wasn't expecting it to be), but they checked me in and gave me a key. While I was driving back to the Contemporary, I received a call on my cell phone saying that we were upgraded to a water view room that was ready now. YIPPEEEE! So I gathered up my wife, and took her over to the Yacht Club.

    Here's the view from our room...

    We had a great time. I'll be back to post more about our trip, but we really fell in love with the Yacht Club. It was just my DW and I, and we thought the resort was beautiful, elegant, and very relaxing. Stormalong Bay got crowded in the afternoon, but we discovered we could swim there in the morning from 10:00a-12:00p and get out before the crowds hit. If we wanted to swim in the afternoon we would go over to the quiet pool, and it was empty.

    We ate dinner and a breakfast at the Captain's Grille, and thought it was great. The service was fantastic, and the food was good too.

    Very nice photos! Thanks for sharing them. :thumbsup2

    I do have to say though that I'd be bummed if I paid for a water view room and got such a tiny peek at the water. :(
