The “secret entrance” is by room 1501, there are stairs there for access to higher floors. Think there’s some pics in one of the first posts of this thread. EDIT: halfway thru post 13
Thank you! We are torn four ways for our next trip. I think the Beach Club would be extra special.

Are there exits on the SE side of Beach Club near the IG? Or do people staying on this side have to walk all the way to the lobby to leave the building? The room I was looking at ended up on that end (according to touring plans) and if I were to book, I would want to make sure I could actually get out there.


Another question...Do you think that the IG is going to be overcrowded because of the Skyliner? It doesn't look like a very big area to have a huge addition of people lining up in the morning.

Asked on the refillable mug thread but haven’t received a response, does anyone know if the YC marketplace offers almond milk (or any non dairy) options at the coffee bar?
Did anyone reply to this?

I don't know the answer but would love to be able to let you know, and to have the info available for others in the future.

:drinking1


Anyone who’s been recently, can you tell me if they still have the specialty coffee bar set up in the BC solarium? Thank you! 32 days to go!!!
:coffee:


I was there 4/4 - 4/9 and it was still there and open at 5:30 AM.
AWESOME!!!

Hope it continues to stay open especially with the EEEMH (Extremely Early Extra Magic Hours)

    For early morning flights or early park openings, I get coffees at Starbucks the day before and put them in the fridge. This makes it a little less painful!
    I've done both depending on the season. I used the microwaves in quick service to re-heat and then add creamer. Not great, but does the trick. I have also been guilty of using 5 hour energy and caffeinated mints that you get on Amazon. (Viter energy)
    :welcome: to the thread!

    Do you have an upcoming trip to the resort?

    That is an excellent suggestion (ahem, except for the Starbucks part, I'm a Dunkin' gal). When I finally figured out to do that, it changed my mornings!

    I prefer hot, black coffee in the morning, but when I can't make it in the room, I'll chill some overnight, add creamer and ice and I'm good to go until I can make it to a place that has hot, plain coffee.

    :surfweb:


    I have been trying to book a cabana for Saturday (5/11)! Let me know if you cancel :)
    :welcome:

    I hope you were able to get a cabana, and I hope you enjoyed your trip!

    Personally, I don't think it will be as bad as some people seem to think. They are adding more turnstiles at the IG to accommodate. Besides, from what I can see, the Skyliner will be letting people off a few at a time (instead of a bus/monorail disgorging a bunch a people at once). Only time will truly tell.

    Thanks for the welcome, Dee. Daughter and I (men usually stay home) have stayed BC many times. Our first Yacht Club trip is August 14 -- 20th.
    I am still not sure how I feel about the laminate flooring. They have a similar flooring at POFQ, and I felt like I should Swiffer. I'm a Massachusetts native -- I would love Dunkin at Disney. However, at this point, Starbucks reminds me of our trips since I only drink it at Dis! Good times! :flower:












    :welcome:

    I hope you were able to get a cabana, and I hope you enjoyed your trip!

    Nice to hear. We have a full day booked in October and I asked for closest to the pool in order to keep an eye on the children. Looking forward to it.
    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list for October. Are you staying at the YC or BC?

    :cool1:


    At the airport now heading home. We booked water view at Beach Club non club level. We were given the Newport Presidential suite on the club level. It was a amazing. We rearranged a few plans to take advantage of the breakfast and apps. This was our first time staying at beach club. I really enjoyed it but Yacht Club is still my favorite.
    That is fantastic!

    Thanks so much for sharing the pictures. At some point I'll "capture" them and save/post them to the Suites forum.

    :banana::banana::banana:


    Question for those who have had a cabana. How many lounge chairs are there available for laying in the sun? Is there room to get there early and have additional? We will have 6 people and 2 chairs out in the sun will not be enough.
    :welcome: to posting on this thread!

    When is your trip? Which resort?

    :cool2:

    The AP Discount is 15%. My cabana reservation shows up on MDE. The agent who made my reservation was very surprised when it showed up automatically.

    Cabana Reviews, May 2019

    I believe the cabana closest to the pool is number 1, behind that number 2, the second row was cabana 3 and the furthest away from the pool is cabana 4.
    We reserved a full day cabana this past Tuesday (5/7/19). I booked it several weeks ago. It was an amazing way to spend a leisurely day at the pool. We were in cabana 4, which is in the back corner. We really liked being away from the hustle and bustle. There was a fully stocked fridge with waters and soda and a fruit tray. There is a tv, power source, extra towels, and plenty of seating options. Because we booked a full day, we also got a dessert tray which we had not expected. My son and husband both loved it (as did I) and I’m not sure how we will go back to “regular” pool days. For us, it was definitely worth the money.
    There are two lounge chairs, one sofa, and two side chairs. If you have a larger group, the attendant can help you get more of the other loungers from around the pool. The group next to us did that (and then never used them).
    View attachment 399921 View attachment 399922 Cabana update, 5/10/19, YC. What a great day! Weather cooperated. We were scheduled for the 3-7pm session but went down around 2 because the weather forecast was iffy. Since it hasn’t been rented in the am, it was all ready for us. No problem going early as the cabana attendant also thought the weather might end our 4 hour stint early but thankfully the weather cooperated. Very cool experience, highly recommend. Yes, it’s expensive, $180 with the AP discount. Fruit plate awesome & plenty of stuff to drink. First pix file too big!

    Saw a wedding carriage ready to take bride & groom from the wedding pavilion but their arrival was taking forever so I only got a pix of horse & carriage.
    Thank you for your reviews!


    Cabana review! We had our cabana booked for the afternoon session (3-7pm) on Saturday May 11th. We had 6 people which is the max and I was worried we wouldn't have enough space for everyone to relax. There is a couch, 2 cushy chairs, and 2 nice lounge chairs. The CM also brought us another regular lounge chair from the pool area. The fruit tray was nice but went fast. Fridge was fully stocked and I liked having a CM who came to take our drink & food orders. I will say she was the only one taking care of all the cabanas so the length of time it took to get our orders varied throughout the afternoon. My dad decided we'd have cabana #4, which is set back from the pool area. One thing I didn't love about that particular cabana was that by late in the afternoon we were in the shade. Maybe good, maybe bad, depending on how warm it is & if you wanted to lay out. Also the CM brought me a cupcake because I was celebrating my birthday! View attachment 401284 View attachment 401285

    All of the Magic Bands that are listed in your MDE account will work for all of your resort rooms. They never stop working unless you manually deactivate them. You will be able to use the MB for charges during your entire stay. Once you check into the BC room the charges will be automatically applied to that room.

    As far as check in goes - whether you do online check in or not, you can still go to the front desk to check in. You can check on your two reservations and then you should get a text when your BC room is ready.

    I know this has been discussed numerous times, but here it goes again. We check in on 6/5. Should I make room request by calling resort 5 days before arrival or through TP?

    Do you know what the numbers of the cabanas closer to the pool are?

    Same experience that we had last Friday on my birthday! We loved cabana 4. Neither myself nor my husband sit in the sun anymore (I did enough skin damage when I was young:). Therefore the shade later in the day was perfect. We certainly needed the ceiling fan! Re:cabana drink service.....she was really busy so I ended up going up to the bar myself, no big deal. We chowed the fruit tray quickly as well. We had stopped at the store at the boardwalk prior and purchased some snacks so we were good to go for the afternoon.

    I would do both as far as requests.

    Upper right corner has a drop down menu, choose United States. Mine occasionally changes me to Canada, no idea why.
