There is a strict "no smoking" policy for anywhere inside the resort and on the balconies. There are a few areas in back of the YC (one is under cover) that are designated as areas where guests may smoke. After a stern warning, any future smoking incident in a room or on a balcony will not be tolerated.Here now, trying to relax on my balcony in spite of a storm-avoiding local smoker and her dog yapping (neither will shut up) two balconies down (I’ve called front desk). Tons of others on their balconies with music blaring. Do not understand how people can be so inconsiderate of others.
Had a great dinner at Yachtsman, which was doing a fast-food-style limited menu. Adults $15, choice of prime rib, chicken or salmon with mashed potatoes and green beans, non-alcoholic drinks and dessert (cookies) included.
Overall, YC and all the CMs have gone all out making sure guests are happy even with the early park closures. If only my smoking neighbour would go back home, life would be pretty perfect...
With pet dogs temporarily being allowed at all Disney resorts, due to the storm, barking dogs can be an issue. Service dogs and ESAs have typically not been much of a problem at the YC, where they are normally allowed.
Under the circumstances, it sounds like you had quite a good dinner at the YC.
With weather conditions hopefully improving, shortly, things should soon be returning to normal.
