I was recently looking at some menus and noticed that the BC Marketplace showed a kind of build your own sub (like subway) and the same for those small flatbreads/pizza. I don't remember the site I was looking at and now of course I can't find it. We leave in ten days and I would love to know if this true. Can anyone at the BC confirm or deny if you can make subs and pizza to order?
:welcome: back!

Thanks for the question!

:goodvibes


And thank you for posting the link!

The one I had on the dining post Page 1, Post 7 brought you to a broken link, so I have added this ^^^

I know FL is full of snakes. That said :scared1: doesn’t quite match how loud I would scream seeing that. We love the hot tub at quiet pool. Move along Mr/Ms Snake por favor.... now if you’ll pardon me I need to make our not ground floor room request...
Right there with you and I scream like a 3 year old having a tantrum--never fails, they always manage to cross my path. There have been very few years where I didn't have a snake encounter and I hate those things! I can deal with the rats, the lizards, the insects, but why does it always have to be snakes! I actually had one fall into my lap while doing my nails on the verandah at GF many years ago! It is still a family joke about scaring the snake as I scrambled across table top and chairs to get off that patio! :lmao: Funny now--at the time, not so much.

    :eek: on your lap? Good lord the entire resort would have heard me. And "the rats?" Other than Mickey, Minnie, and Remy, I've not seen a mouse/rat in WDW, thank god.

    I would've screamed so loud if something dropped into my lap! It wouldn't matter if it was a snake or a leaf lol. I just don't like things popping out of nowhere suddenly. It's why I don't like frogs lol. They can just jump right at you!

    We had a wonderful time at Beach Club last weekend! We booked a standard room and were upgraded to a garden/woods view room, #7598. The location was perfect! It was right around the corner from the elevator. We were in the same wing as the "secret" exit/entrance, and we used that door coming to and from Epcot. It was a very quick walk, and baggage check at the International Gateway is super easy and painless. We had a full balcony that overlooked a small flowerbed. The Tidal Pool was not too far away. The room is in the corner of an L, so you can't lay on the bed naked with the shades open. ;)
    The only odd thing was that housekeeping never came to our room the entire weekend. We did not request to forgo housekeeping, and we were not staying in a DVC room, so I'm not sure what happened there. It wasn't too big a deal as we only stayed Friday-Monday, but if we had stayed a week I would have said something.
    We are officially resort snobs now. I want to stay at Beach Club every time!
    Thanks for letting us know about your stay!

    :goodvibes



    We were able to book our Magical trip this morning with our TA, well most of it anyways. We couldn’t get the last two nights as of right now but we are going to figure something out!! So we will be there July 18th -30th Beach Club Standard View.

    I also saw that Southwest will be releasing their flights through August 5th on Nov.15!

    I also have to share this picture( it’s BC related because there are pics of us at the BC hanging up :rolleyes1) Our daughter painted/created this picture and I just had to hang it up! We decided to put pics of all our adventures around it. We can’t wait to add more!!
    :welcome: back!

    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list

    :woohoo:

    Finally getting around to adding this info to Page 1.

    :thanks:

    I just saw a Swan/Dolphin post that the FriendShip boats will not be running 11/28/18-12/25/2018, due to gondola construction. Instead, bus transportation will be available.

    https://www.disboards.com/threads/walt-disney-world-swan-dolphin-resorts-information-questions.3264274/page-373#post-59804840


    I know a couple of people have emailed Disney Signature Service about this but did not get any confirmations about upcoming disruptions. Has anyone seen anything official from Disney or the Yacht & Beach Club resort?

    I called yesterday to ask a few questions about my trip next year before booking in the next few weeks and was talked into booking. So my trip is booked YAY!!! Sept 8th thru the 13, YC CL. So, far just me going, probably breaking up with my bf, so didn't want to add him and go thru that mess. Can always add someone else later.:love::love::love::love:

    The rats live in the trees. We sat by the quiet pool at BWI one day--kind of a dreary day and people were in the hot tub. We watched the rat come across the pool patio, skirted the edge of the hot tub and the folks in the tub were none the wiser. It was within a foot of them and they had no clue. He/she wandered through the bushes and out by the garbage gate. We joked it was Ratatouille from France. If you are out later in the evening, they are skulking about.

    And again, that snake did land in my lap. I was happily chatting with my husband enjoying the quiet, the turn down maid was in our room telling our children a bedtime story from her Jamaican heritage while she tidied up the room and whap, out of the tree it fell. Scared the bejeesus out of me!

    We are so excited for her!! This has been a goal for my daughter since she was about 12 years old.

    lol you're a lot more generous than we were! We must have gotten in for free for almost 7 years, it was awesome while it lasted. Now, we have AP's, that is very cool too. I know what you mean about hotels, we've been DVC members since 2003 at BCV, I can't imagine the cost of that. I hope she enjoys the program, its a once in a lifetime opportunity, very exciting!

    Hi all! Just got back from a honeymoon in Disney World and stayed at The Beach Club the first couple nights! We had an amazing lagoon view room with a full balcony! I know these are not guaranteed with the "Water View" room types so we got lucky! Our room number was 2621! I had made these requests and waited until 4pm for this room to be ready but it was worth it, the location of the room cannot be beat! It was on the second floor maybe 4 rooms down from the staircase to the lobby! These resorts are very large so it was awesome being so close to everything and I have no noise complaints from the room location either! Check out these pictures of the view and balcony and let me know if you have any questions!

    OK, that is a great story! I'm sure not so amusing at the time, but I'm glad you can laugh about it now!

    Tree rats?!? :eek:

    Stay out of the d*mn lakes and avoid the trees after dark.

    :scared:

    They're very good at climbing stairs.
    :sad1:... can’t I pretend that’s impossible? Because it’s the land of Mouse Magic where dreams come true right?... *makes final trip payment being an adult, remembers it’s fake magic & expensive fake magic at that!*... :sad:

    New plan: F&W. Generous amounts of champagne/sparkling wine. Much easier to roll with the realities of FL after that!

    We leave tomorrow for our one night stay near the airport, then we check in to Yacht Club on Saturday for a week! We have stayed at Beach Club, but this is our first stay at Yacht. We are so excited!!!! Have the Halloween mugs shown up yet at Yacht Club? I saw someone say they were at Boardwalk but not Beach last week.
    Have fun!

    :woohoo:

    I’m so excited we leave way too early in the morning for a week at YC!!!
    Hope you have an amazing trip!

    :cool1:


    I’ve been taking a little break from the Disboards because for the first time in about ten years, we were going to take a year off of our Disney trips. I just didn’t want to be reminded of what we were missing.

    Well, as luck would have it, my daughter was just accepted for the Disney College Program for Spring Advantage!! Guess who just went from zero Disney trips to an annual pass? This girl!! I can’t wait to spend a little time at Yacht and Beach during her program. We love this resort, and we are so excited for our daughter’s opportunity! She will be working in merchandising, so her placement could be anywhere.
    That is fantastic!!! Congrats to your daughter.

    We look forward to seeing you back around these parts.

    :banana::banana::banana:


    @natebenma We will be staying at both Beach Cub and Yacht Club! Dec 22-28th 2018 at Beach Club Club Level and April 20-28th 2019 at Yacht Club (waiting on 2019 Passholder discounts before we upgrade to Club Level) but we are excited to be at WDW during Christmas! We decided against the CL FP+ for our Christmas stay. I did them for 8 of our 10 days last month and honestly, I didn't feel it was worth the money. Our last 3 trips have been at The Contemporary. Excited to try something new!
    :welcome: to the thread!

    I am happy to add your two (TWO!) trips to the Be Our Guest list.

    Sounds like a couple of fantastic stays and we look forward to hear your thoughts on the resorts.

    :thumbsup2



    A little bit of a late review...we were there on 9/20-9/22 before leaving for our cruise. Walking into the Beach Club lobby made me so happy :) Last year we stayed at the Yacht club, loved it and were upgraded to a great room but there is nothing like the Beach Club!!! We were upgraded to a water view from a standard "magical deal" room a few days before ( I saw it on my Disney experience app, never happened before that I see it before arriving :)
    We had room 4563, pretty close to the quiet pool. Loved the room and the view. Everything was pretty amazing. There was no construction or painting at the entrance but some painting in the walkway to the buses. The main work we saw was in the corner building by the quiet pool. It looked like some serious work, more than painting and it was a bit noisy over there-those would be the only rooms I would avoid. We had a long but narrow balcony.
    Thanks so much for the room information and pictures.

    2 Queen beds? Daybed or no?

    I'll add them to the view thread.

    ::yes::

    So glad to hear you enjoyed the room! Thanks for the pictures- I'll add them to the view thread.

    What was the bedding configuration? 2 Queens or a King bed? Daybed?

    Thanks!

    I'll add you to the list.

    :woohoo:




    Thanks so much for your comments. In addition to the suggestion from dansdad below, we have a section in the FAQ about different products which mimic the lobby smell according to guests.

    Check the next post.

    ::yes::



    I have to see if this is one of the suggestions listed.

    :thumbsup2




    Thank you for the review and pictures you posted!

    I'll check out your report, and add the lounge and view pictures where needed.

    Thanks, again!

    :cool1:




    Thank you so much for your detailed information and comments!

    I was looking for confirmation that the BCV concierge desk was still staffed, so I appreciate that.

    As much as I love coffee (I LOVE coffee and I would testify to that under oath), I have never had Cold Brew. Which my husband says is excellent (I am not a coffee snob by any measure and would probably drink mud if it had a hit of caffeine)

    There is a question I am getting at here- The cold brew dispenser has hot coffee (not iced), right?

    :coffee:





    :welcome: to the thread!

    Are you staying at the resort at the end of October or just visiting during a stay elsewhere.

    If and when I get a listing of the Halloween activities at the Yacht & Beach Club, I will post it here.

    Does anyone have an upcoming club level stay at either resort at the end of the month? If so, would you mind contacting Disney Signature Services to see if they have a schedule of Halloween activities available.

    :maleficen
    Sorry for quoting everything, I am useless posting from my phone and we are traveling for a wedding. The cold brew dispenser dispenses basically room temp coffee that is meant to be consumed over ice. If you are like me though, you will be so fixated on getting coffee that you stupidly fill the whole cup with coffee then stare at the cup in disbelief while you try and figure out how you are now going to get ice in your very full cup...
