Ok what's in this awesome B&C Halloween Treat and how do I get one? We have reservations for Sunday Night :)
As this concoction is brand new, you may just have to help everyone out, here, and order one and report back!

It looks like it's a variation of one of their specialty shakes.

    How are they handling SAB as far as how many can be there? Are there long waits to get get in?

    That thing right there is a good reason why I hope calorie counts stay away from Disney menus. :-)
    There are no Calories at Disney! :goofy:
    One time (years ago) when I called for a dining reservation, I asked about this. The phone agent actually told me the calories don't count because they add pixie dust to everything.

    I figure this is a good time to share the official science with everyone.

    Way behind here again- but wanted to give some recent posters a hello!

    I'm sure I have missed other new folks in the past several pages, hope to catch up later tonight, during football.

    :cool2:

    9 Days till DH and I arrive at the Yacht Club, we are only staying for 3 nights.... getting a SW:GE first look.... FINALLY!

    Seems like a good number of things are still available at the resort.

    ~ Can anyone been there lately that can tell me where I buy my refillable mug, and is it the Halloween one yet?
    ~ Any word on the Steakhouse opening?
    ~ Is the transport still limited to walking, buses or Sky-lift to DHS?

    Thanks in advance for anything you can fill me in on.... we are far from Disney Newbies but this is the first time we have stayed at this resort.
    :welcome:

    Wishing you a magical trip!

    I think you have received answers to the questions you have posted. If not, we are here!

    :cool1:

    :welcome: back to the thread!

    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

    :woohoo:

    :goodvibes

    There was a wait to get in to SAB over Labor Day weekend. If I am remembering correctly, it was only a short period of time before guests were permitted to enter after being held up.

    I think most of the time from now until the holidays- Thanksgiving and Christmas- should be fine, especially if the weather is cool. I'll be interested to see if there are waits to get in over Columbus Day weekend.

    Here’s the progression as I’ve observed it.

    *snip*

    Hope that is helpful!
    Thank you so much for this info.

    Yes, very helpful!

    I will write something up, sometime, to add to the FAQ post about how guestscan provide feedback about their stays.

    :thanks:


    I also got an email from the GM which takes you to that same website, although you have to have location enabled on your phone so it can tell you’re actually there. Twice it told me I didn’t meet requirements for sending a message, so I went and changed my settings not realizing that a very specific one was off (and I had to google how to find that after the message I got). Most of my time during my stay the channel with the QR code was having some issues, it was really digitized and the code just couldn’t be read, but thankfully that email did the trick.
    I appreciate you sharing this experience.

    :thanks:


    I am so excited, we have reservations from Nov. 10-15. We have never stayed in a Deluxe Resort, so it feels a little extra special. Thank you everyone who has contributed to this thread, it's fun and helpful to read through!
    :welcome: to posting on this thread!

    I see from a subsequent post that you will now be staying "across the pond" at BWV. Wishing you a most magical trip!

    :goodvibes


    This is one aspect we didn't think about when we made our AKL to BC to YC move. We like animals as well (we have our own menagerie including a dog) but the one thing that drives my wife nuts is dogs barking uncontrollably at night. I know the chances are slim that we would encounter this, but if we do I will be the one in the doghouse!
    :welcome: to this forum!

    When is your trip?

    :cool1:


    Just got moved to the Yacht Club due to our resort (Animal Kingdom Lodge) being closed. Very excited to spend a long weekend here. It will be our first time staying here. Quick question: how have the crowds been around the pool?
    :welcome:

    When is your stay here?

    Over Labor Day weekend the pool hit capacity a few times and there was a (short) wait to get in, I believe. Recreation Cast Members have been escorting guests to empty seats, distanced from other parties/families at the pool.

    :fish:


    Dee, as feared, I have to ask you to please use your eraser and move our October trip. The border isn’t reopening yet (per our airline, which canceled our flights) so we’ve rescheduled...again.

    Was Oct 8-12, now Feb 19-24 - still YC GV

    Sigh.
    Got it!

    :hug:


    This offers a very complete picture of both BC & YC, including some comparisons between the two.

    Thanks for posting this. I'll add the link to the section in the first post comparing the two resorts.

    ::yes::

    Could you find out the nearest place to purchase bottled water in cases? They usually have it at the YC gift shop but wanted to check. ty :flower3:
    I don't have the answer to your question, but I'll mention a couple of things I do when I am staying at Disney or other hotels:

    I bring along resusable bottles for my family. If the the resort store has gallons of water, I'll buy that to use to fill the bottles. If not, I fill the ice bucket with ice from the dispenser and let it melt and use that to fill the bottle.

    Yes. I AM that cheap!

    :drinking:

    Last Day - Late Afternoon Flight: I estimate that DME will pick us up at YC around 2:00 for our 5:00 flight out of MCO. We would like to enjoy the pool that morning and I'd like to know if there will be facilities in which to change at the resort once our room has been released. Are the public restrooms open at the resort at the moment? What are our options these days? Thanks!
    Before they installed the locker/shower room at SAB, I would change in the large restrooms just outside of SAB. I think others have said these are open.

    ::yes::


    Ok...Just moved our reservation from BC to YC for Nov 14-18. Frankly I hadn't been paying attention to the fact the BC never opened and started to do ADR and park reservations....so now for the 3rd fall in a row we are in! BCV in 18, Pop in 19 and YC now in 20. I am sure this one will be way different than the other 2
    :welcome: back!

    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list we keep on Page 1, Post 15.

    :cool1:


    I would walk to HS. It's almost the same distance to the skyline as it is to HS from YC side - maybe a 1/4 mile longer to walk if that
    :welcome: to posting on this thread, and thanks for the input.

    When is your trip?

    :thumbsup2

    If you have room....we bring our zero water pitcher to refill our water bottles and use for better water in our coffee maker.

    Intrigued by this.... we live in the country with our own well and have a osmosis filter on our sink for drinking water and cooking.

    Does this pitcher take the weird taste out of water from the bathroom taps? Might be a good thing to try to squeeze into that suit case.... could always pack stuff inside it so it doesn't take up too much space.....

    Yes! I'm in Fl and use it at home. Literally, zero taste and they come in different sizes. The filters are pricey but well worth it.
