Beach Club Dee
- Jul 19, 2008
I have a room booked in standard club level for two nights. I wanted to add another day (May 22) but it wasn't available with a discount. I booked a garden view room for the one night so I have to switch rooms.
Has anyone done this? Is it a major pain?
Mary Ellen!!!Wow Dee! I never clicked on this thread before. It's pretty darn AMAZING! Denny and I are staying at BCV one night - March 4th. It's at the end of our Tampa trip. I wait listed a few weeks ago and it just came through. I've stayed there before, but he never has. Even though we will only be there a little over 24 hours we plan to enjoy every second!
A "trip" to remember?Hey, long lost thread contributor back again. The sting of not having a Disney trip on the horizon has kept me from the thread for a while... Toooooo saaaaadddd for me! Working on my trip report has kept me going. Of course, looking back at my pictures at the awful bump I got on my head makes me feel like a total idiot for not going to the hospital. LOL Still don't have a name for the trip report. Something about a TRIP and a Disney head injury, so I keep changing my mind.
I'm keeping my blues away by planning a trip for a friend. Plus when she's there, I'm sending her to Norway to get me some Laila body wash - they don't ship to Canada! Gotta come back to the Disboards to figure out what's new, even from August past. Memory Maker???? What's that???
With respect to the Boardwalk, we walked over there during our 2012 trip a few times, but not in our 2013. Must have been the time we went, but we didn't see any performers. Still a lovely walk for the view, and to try to work off some of the awesome Disney food in the evening.
Glad to see the regulars here!

I have heard good things too, but I haven't been there. I think it would be fine to take the kids there. Anyone have a different viewpoint?Read good reviews about Crew Cup Lounge but was uncertain if this was only appropriate for DW and myself or if we could take our DD's (9 & 11) for a casual dinner on a day off from the parks.
I would word the request. "Full balcony, please. If possible, upper floor courtyard view." or if the view is more important than the balcony, then "Upper floor, courtyard view, please. Full balcony if possible"Hi again everyone!
So we booked garden view. I've never made a location request before. Does it hurt to request a full balcony? Or is it better to say "courtyard view" instead of "woods view"?
Just not sure how to word request. I know we'd rather have a courtyard view, and we'd rather be on a upper floor? Or would a patio be better?
Hi all -
We're planning a trip in Jan 2015 (at least we're thinking it's January). We've taken several trips to WDW over the last 11 years but haven't stayed on property for the last 10 years. I think we may try a stay at Yacht and Beach. 2 adults and 2 kiddos (DS12 and DD15 in 2015) - could we all fit in to one room or is that pushing it?
Also - any suggestions on best January dates for a trip?
Ate there in August, great burgers. There were lots of families, it's Disney. But it's small. We lucked out both times we ate there, and got tables without a wait.Read good reviews about Crew Cup Lounge but was uncertain if this was only appropriate for DW and myself or if we could take our DD's (9 & 11) for a casual dinner on a day off from the parks.
Let us know when and where you book and I will add you to the Be Our Guest list.
This past July, I stayed at the Beach Club with my two boys, age 15 and 12. We did have enough room, but may I suggest that you request a room with a daybed, or request a rollaway cot when you check in. We had a daybed which was great for my older son who didn't want to sleep in the same bed as his brother.
If you go early enough in January, some of the park and resort decorations may still be up. I am guessing that marathon weekend(s) are the busiest times in January, so I would check to see when the runners will be there.
Yes. Parties of 5 (or more) guests get priority for rooms with daybeds, then I'm not actually sure how they are assigned, but my suggestion for you is to word the requestThanks!
I'm guessing the request for a daybed is a first come first serve, no guarantee?
OMG!!!!!FYI- Here is a Disney Food Blog about the Captain's Grille. We had two meals there on our very short, 5 day trip last summer and both lunch and dinner were fantastic!
We had the clam chowder pictured and described in the blog and it was amazing. It may not look like typical New England Clam chowder, but it was so yummy (and it didn't have tomatoes)
That's a big investment for just a bit of candy! LOL! It just looks so gorgeous around the BC, BW and YC area... I can't wait for July!Boardwalk Comments Please!!!
Question- is there someplace that you can see an entertainment schedule for the sidewalk performers? If I get a chance, I will mosey on over to the BWI FAQ to see if they have a listing
Here is my contribution to your question, which actually is a cautionary tale, not just of the BW Bakery, but any "Pay What You Weigh" candy spots in Disney

It was somewhere around 7:30 when we finished our meal at Cape May Cafe. We had never been to the Boardwalk before, so we decided to head over there after our meal. The boat was right at the International Gateway dock, so we took the ride.
We watched a magician for a while. He gave Nate a rope to check during the show. We didnt see any other street perfomers while we were there.
We asked the magician if we could tip him and he said no, but we could mention him favorably if we filled out any comment cards or surveys. We were absolutely stuffed , but we decided to check out Boardwalk Bakery anyway.
The baked goods did not appeal to us at the moment, but the boys saw CANDY! It was sold it by weight, the sign said $3.99. Each boy got a small bag of candy. That will be $9.38. What?!? Warning, Warning, Warning! The prices quoted are PER QUARTER POUND, not per pound.
After paying something like 50 cents per Skittle, we popped into the ESPN gift shop. We didnt really see anything we wanted. We did get a pressed penny from here, though.
At this point, it was probably 8:15 or so, and the boys decided to return to the room.
