natebenma is there info you would like to know while I am here ?
OK, now I have thought of something, but not a big deal if you don't see this in time.

Lots of curiosity about the clock/iPhone docking situation. If you could snap a close-up picture of whatever is currently in your room right now, that would be great.

Thanks!

CAUGHT UP!!! (I think...)


Can you please add us to the Be Our Guest list for June 16-23?
:welcome: back!

Will do!

:cool1:

We've booked our bounce back to stay at the Beach Club CL for Sept 10-16. We haven't stayed there in a few years. Now to start planning.....:duck:
:welcome: back!!!

I'll add you to the list.

:woohoo:


Headed to Beach Club DVC for our honeymoon from May 10-21 2016. Super excited to visit beach club and also explore disney for only my second time. :)
:welcome: and congratulations!!!

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

Lots of info here on this thread (Page 1) and in the other forums of the DIS. Happy planning and please let us know if you have any questions.

:cheer2:


New to Beach Club! Just booked a garden room for Aug 2016. Open to suggestions and recommendations for best garden rooms/locations!! Also, any information a newbie to BC needs to know is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
:welcome:

I'll add you to the list.

As Mike suggested, Page 1 of this thread (particularly Posts 13 FAQ and 14 Other Useful Info). The Beach Club View Thread he referred to is in the Resort Community subforum. For a BC Garden View, our favorite rooms has been one that looks over the BC Back Entrance (lakeside) courtyard. If you go back a few pages you will see the disputed garden/water view Erika (TigrLvsPooh) has posted. GREAT people watching.

Let us know if you have other questions along the way.

Dec 4-10 BC GV
Got it!

:welcome:

Let us know if you have any questions.

I have a quick question--we are going to be staying at the YC for the first time in June. We have stayed at many of the other resorts before, so wDW resorts Are not new for me. We are a big family -* people this time--due to an extra friend that we are bringing. I have made my reservations for 2 garden view rooms. I know that the connecting rooms are not always granted-although, we have always gotten them. My question is, if we do get connecting room, is there a chance we can get the daybed as well? I think I would choose a daybed over connecting rooms, if I had the choice. Is the option available to choose daybed when doing online check in?

Thanks!!
:welcome:

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

I don't believe that daybed is currently a choice for online checkin. Call in your room requests (you can do this now) to Disney's Central Reservations Office. If you have booked through a travel agency, they need to do this for you. Make sure the priority of your requests is clear.

"Daybed in one/both rooms, please. Connecting Rooms, if possible" Make sure the reservations are "linked" and that the room assigners are aware that you are traveling together.

::yes::

I know things are kind of crazy this time of year but when you get a chance can you add us to the BOG list for next year.

November 13-21 BC CL garden view (celebrating DH 60th).

:rainbow::rainbow::rainbow:
:welcome: back!

Good to have you coming again.

:hyper:

Starting to plan some details for our trip in March. We arrive at MCO at 11:30 am and will be heading straight to the Yacht Club. We are hoping for an early check in but if that doesn't happen we will be be perfectly happy to spend a few hours hanging out at beautiful Stormalong Bay. I think I can hear a Sunken Treasure calling my name already......

Saturday evening we have dinner ressies at O'hana followed by a few hours at MK. We love the parks at night! On Sunday we are planning some more pool time, followed by mini golf at Fantasia. We are then heading over for an early dinner at Sci-Fi and a fun filled evening at the Studios. Monday morning we are trying Cape May Cafe for Minnie's Beach Breakfast. Epcot is the call of the day with the "Behind the Seeds" tour booked. We are up bright and early for the "Marceline to Magic" tour at MK on Tuesday followed by a late lunch at Whispering Canyon. We are going to attempt to conquer the "Kitchen Sink" at "Beaches and Cream" on Tuesday night.

Wednesday we will be heading off to Typhoon Lagoon for a fun day of play, followed by dinner at Narcoosees and EMH at MK. Thursday is our AK day with a lunch planned at Yak and Yeti. We may be brave or crazy enough to try Disney Springs for St Patty's in the evening! Friday is a Blizzard Beach day with dinner planned for Chefs de France and EMH at Epcot. Sadly we have to return to the real world on Saturday.......I really want to stay in the Disney bubble forever!

So looking forward to being back and soaking up some beautiful Florida sunshine at the lovely Yacht Club. How many sleeps is it until March 12th?? Just a little excited!
Sounds like some fabulous plans! I really want to do the Behind the Seeds tour. It is short, it is relatively inexpensive and I love the Living with the Land attraction!

:thumbsup2

Bummer Dee! I arrive on 1/21. I was really hoping we could finally meet. I have only met 'flat' Dee at the 2010 DIS Meet!

Kerry
I was SO excited for a day when I thought we were going to be there at the same time.

:(

Someday, I hope!

::yes::

Still trying to dig out from getting way behind.



Thanks for this info!

:welcome: if this is your first, or one of the first, times posting here.

Thanks for the welcome. Yes that was my first post on this thread...I've been reading along looking for information on the CL lounge and room rehab. We're staying at the YC Feb 3-9. It's been about 2 years since we last stayed at the YC.

Erika, I would not consider that a water view either, if Disney does it needs to reclassify some of their rooms. Same with other resorts that have trees grown up to block views...better yet trim the trees. :rolleyes1

Teena, Congrats on selling your house so quickly, you will be missed at the BC, but what better reason to leave than to be near your girls. I'm sure you don't remember but I had the pleasure to meet you a couple of years ago, I was with those crazy GF Gals. :crazy:

    Well, we are off to Magic Kingdom today for the first of three visits there. The girls had a fantastic Christmas on the 26th. Tomorrow we check into Wilderness Lodge for two nights to make this vacation a little extra special.

    Keep your fingers crossed the park isn't closed due to capacity by the time we get there!!!

    I'll put you on the list.

    :woohoo:

    I'll be interested to hear when the room rehabs start at the YC. I'm guessing that the YC CL rooms will be started shortly after the new year.

    I agree that the view Erika is a garden view. We had a similar view and I loved the people-watching but if you are paying for waterview, you should be getting more than those peek-a-boo views.

    ::yes::

    I have FINALLY caught up from the past two weeks and I believe I have updated the Be Our Guest list with all the additions/changes you have posted. But I would appreciate it if you would take an extra close peek to be sure I have the correct information for your trip. Let me know if anything needs to be revised.

    Would you consider this water view?



    Seems a bit of a stretch. But I guess we can technically see water. ;)
    Erika, I had that exact same view at the Beach Club CL (might have even the same room lol), but I had booked garden view CL and that is what I got. I was told by CMs that the whole of that little wing/hallway is classified as garden view CL, some with that view, and others on the other side of the hallway with a view of the lawn.

    Hello! I would love to be added to the list! We'll be staying Yacht Club CL from 3/11 - 3/14 and then will be moving to the Polynesian until the 22nd. I am heading off now to check out the room view thread, because all that was available for us was standard view. I'm glad to be able to see what we can expect.

    Thank you for all of the information here! I had fun getting caught up!

    Does anyone have photos of the new Yacht Club Regatta Lounge? I noticed on the first page it said it opened on December 13.

    As most of you know, Teena's daughter and granddaughter Lily arrived in Florida yesterday and they celebrated Christmas. Today they visited Magic Kingdom. Here are a few pictures. I'll probably try to put some more on the Lily Goes Live thread, hopefully tomorrow.

    We were given a room that had a connecting door, a daybed and a full balcony. You can choose a full balcony during the online check in but you'll have to call to had the other requests added to your reservation.

    Well, we are off to Magic Kingdom today for the first of three visits there. The girls had a fantastic Christmas on the 26th. Tomorrow we check into Wilderness Lodge for two nights to make this vacation a little extra special.
    I hope you have a great stay at the WL. Will it be Lily's first time there?

    I love the picture of Lily at the MK. She looks adorable in her princess dresses. :)

    I did tell 2 CL CMs my thoughts and feelings about this room. One of them took notes and said he would share my concerns with management. I told them I definitely don't think it should be categorized as water/pool view. They both just smiled and nodded. :rolleyes2 I think a lot of the regulars were off for Christmas, I never saw Neil.

    Just got back from a wonderful visit to Beach Club. Had a great room, 1507, lagoon view, and the world's quietest room. It's also as close as you can get to Epcot, but a long distance from the main lobby and transportation. It's near the secret entrance to Epcot, and at a dead end so we never heard a peep from the hallway, or the adjacent rooms. It's your choice if you want to be quick to the bus and boat, or quick to Epcot and the Boardwalk Bakery. I watched Illuminations twice because it was so easy to see it from the bridge, and hop back within 5 minutes. And the Christmas Illuminations is the best. I think the Epcot boat stop is probably closer than the Beach Club stop. My only room request was full balcony, and it was met.

    We had a great breakfast at Cape May. Really enjoyed that food. We ate at the Beach Club Marketplace once, and that was one time too many. You know when you microwave a frozen pizza or sandwich and it gets that hard spot in the middle? That's how our pizza and sandwiches were. We had great meals elsewhere throughout the trip, but never tried Marketplace again. I would grab fruit, or even a muffin, but nothing else. The meal was not good.

    Some advice: The pool food service has Powerade at their mug refill station, but Marketplace does not. My son bought a few Powerades until we figured that out. Whoops. Wasted some snack credits on those. We didn't get a chance to eat at the pool restaurant. I was surprised it closed at 8pm. I walked there for supper one night, and must have just missed the cut off time.

    Definitely use Boardwalk Bakery for quick service meals and breakfast rolls. Great food! Plus the photo booth outside the restaurant is Photo Pass compatible. My 3YO thought it was great, even if her head only made it into half the pictures.

    We took a taxi from HS to Typhoon Lagoon one day, and I intended to take a taxi back to Beach Club but the bus was right there so we took that. Big mistake. It took almost an hour to get back to Beach Club. We transferred at Epcot, and the bus was right there once again so we didn't have to wait, and I was feeling lucky. Then we stopped at all sorts of hotels on our way back to Beach Club. Spend the $15 and take a taxi instead. We were ready for afternoon naps, and the bus ride was way too long.

    I hope everyone enjoys their stays at the Beach Club. I switched from GF just a week before our travel date, and I'm so glad. MK was just too busy around Christmas, so we spent a lot of time at HS and Epcot. The walks to and from HS got a little long in the heat, but it was better than waiting in the boat line.

    I wish everyone wonderful stays at the Beach Club.
