We are checking out today. My husband had a conference here this week. We flew in on Thanksgiving and stayed 2 days at AKL. We checked in to Yacht Club on Saturday.

I’m not sure what happened, but we booked a standard view room and what we got was a corner lagoon view room!! My only request 2 days before was a king size bed. We were very surprised and happy.

We love the YC! We love the convenience of walking to and from Epcot and HS.

Thank you to all the great people who posted all their experiences and tips. It made our trip so nice.

We had no complaints other than the dog off the leash issue. Other than that, everything was great. Thanks for all your help!!

There are major changes to the dinner menu at Crew's Cup Lounge.

Appetizers
Yachtsman Soup of the Day $9.00
Crisp Romaine Salad $9.00
Shaved Parmesan, House-made Dressing, Focaccia Crouton. Add Grilled Chicken or Chilled Jumbo Shrimp
Pancetta Deviled Eggs $8.00
Pimento Cheese, Pickled Pancetta, Candied Jalapeño, and Parmesan Crisp
Wianno Oysters Rockefeller $19.00
Cottage Bacon and Creamed Spinach
Charcuterie and Cheese Board $19.00
House-made Charcuterie and Artisanal Cheese
Baked Cheese Dip $13.00
Manchego and Gouda Cheeses, House Chorizo, Peppers, Artichoke Hearts, and Pretzel Bread
Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail $19.00
Old Bay Poached and House-made Cocktail Sauce
Crisp Romaine Salad $7.00
Sourdough, Pull-apart Onion Rolls, Roasted Garlic, and Butter


Entrées
Churrasco Steak and Truffle Frites $36.00
24-hour Marinated and served with Red Chimichurri
Braised Beef Short Ribs $33.00
Mashed Potatoes and Horseradish Potatoes
10-oz Roast Prime Rib of Beef $36.00
Mashed Potatoes, Horseradish Cream, and Au Jus

The burger and lighter, less expensive entrees are gone from the dinner menu, but still on the lunch menu.

Just read recent reviews at https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g34515-d2346475-Reviews-Crew_s_Cup_Lounge-Orlando_Florida.html, and saw that others shared a similar experience to my last dinner at Crew's Cup. The first burger that was served, came out with a thick charred coating and cooked well done, though ordered medium. I showed the server, and she ordered a second burger, which took a long time to be served. That one came barely medium rare, with much of it left on the plate. I was not given any adjustment on the bill or special accommodation. After my last visit, I decided that it was no longer a desirable place for a quick sit-down meal, on the spur of the moment. The new menu only enforces that thought. Also, with no menu for kids, and no sandwiches available, what do they think a kid can eat for dinner, there?

So the question is, will they let you order the hamburger and fries if you happen to sit down after 5:00pm in the bar? I hope to find out when we are there in two weeks. Use to be a must-go place for us. Hope it still is.

    So, there is something strange on the website. When I was last at Crew's Cup, lunch was served until 2:00 pm, with the lounge opening around 12 noon. If you look at the times, now, this is what it shows, thru the first week of January:
    Hours of operation listed as 4:30 PM - 12:00 AM
    After that first week in January, it lists no hours.

    YIKES...not liking the menu!!! 99% of the items have meat in them...stinks for a person who doesn't eat animals that breathe air.

    When I was there in Oct. my bartender friends told me there were going to a tapas style menu as soon as Ale & Compass reopened. The new menu seems to reflect that. Just my opinion on the highlighted part but I think they want to make CC a true lounge & not so much a destination for dinner. I do think I vaguely remember one of them saying they wouldn't be serving lunch anymore either but don't quote me on that. That would make sense though if the hours currently showing start at 4:30. Like I said I think they want it to be a lounge & not a destination for food. I'll be going to A&C lounge now for my truffle fries. That's ok with me as one of my friends has moved over there to bartend.

    We are at the Beach Club right now and the information about the Y&B Club on the resort TV channel said that the Crew's Cup Lounge didn't open until 4:30pm. It listed the Ale & compass Lounge as opening at 11am. We stopped in the Ale & Compass Lounge yesterday to take a few pictures. The lounge is beautiful and decorated with a deep blue paint, which makes it a little dark, but serene.

    The picture with the people sitting in front of the fireplace is the way the lounge looks from the doorway.

    A&C right.jpg

    The shorter row of tables and chairs is to the right as you walk into the room. The hallway to the Ale and Compass restuarnt is just past this seating area on the right.

    A&C lounge left.jpg The long line of tables and chairs along the wall to the left is the wall that used to have the bar in the old lounge.

    A&C bartender.jpg

    This is the big bar that is hiding behind the wall with the fireplace. You can't see the entrance from the lobby but it is a fairly large bar area.

    A&C bar.jpg
    The other side of the fireplace faces the bar.

    We looked at the restaurant this morning but didn't take any pictures. We'll get there later. It is the same blue color as the lounge.

    Sorry, but there are no truffle fries on the menu at Ale & Compass Lounge.

    If there are no hours showing after first week of January, could this mean that Crew's Cup will be the next location to be remodeled?

    Just so you know - in my opinion, the pillows in the Beach Club rooms are much nicer than the pillows at the Grand Floridian. But the Keurig coffee maker in the rooms at the Grand make a better cup of coffee than the Cuisinart machines in the BC rooms. I hope they get the Keurigs at the BC. :)

    We ate at Crew's Cup early this November and Truffle Fries weren't on the menu...server said since Captain's closed so no more truffle fries...it was our favorite! :sad1:

    In the last few years when we visited the Crews Cup (we've usually gone there for a late quick dinner at least once per trip) they've never had a kids menu that I've seen. They've always just pulled items (via the server) from the kids menu next door - chicken tenders, mac'n'cheese, pasta, etc. I hope they'll still be as accommodating...

    I just called BC ....8000 number to ask for certain room request (I already did this when I made my reservation). I was asked when I check in - I said Dec 7. I was immediately switched over to the main reservation number. I thought that I would be speaking to someone at BC who was handling the assignment of rooms. Am I wrong? Should I try again tomorrow? Or, who do I ask for?

    We leave tomorrow night for Bonnet Creek before our BC stay.

    I've been calling the "resort" number for quite awhile, to place my room requests, and the CM who answered the call always accepted my requests.

    The last time was in October.

    We are at the airport waiting for our flight home. We had a great week at WDW and the weather could not have been better. :)

    I took a few pictures of the Ale and Compass restaurant this morning. We didn’t eat there, though. We miss the breakfast buffet that Captains Grill used to serve. I’ll post pictures this weekend. :)
