I am so sorry to hear your stay has been disappointing so far!

Please share your concerns at the front desk- if you are willing to switch rooms kindly ask if there is something else available with a better view and without Skipper Salty.

Is this the guy?

I have not stayed at the YC yet, but I don't think he is in every room. Is he? (YC vets)?

Crossing my fingers for you!

:goodvibes
Ive never had this dude in my rooms!

I'll be in beach club next september for the first time! I'm really excited to try a Deluxe resort in Disneyworld. Since I live in Italy, I have to spend really lots of money into flights and trasportation, so I always stayed at the Values resorts. But this time will be extra special :D

I've heard from numerous persons that the bus system at the Beach club is not really good....any tips? During my first morning I have an AR for Cinderella royal table at 7.55 and I would love to be there really early...

We didn't have any bus issues last time we were there, the screens have been useful for checking the times too

    I have a lot of catching up to do on this thread, I'm behind about 8 pages. I usually am able to read everyone's posts, but don't do a thorough reply to everyone unless I have a large chunk of time. Here's my excuse this time...

    The teachers running this year's class trip did not have park tickets until 28 days before the trip. So when we booked FP at EPCOT a couple of weeks ago, all of the Test Track ones were gone and Soarin' was not available. On Saturday, when Disney released the new Fast Passes including old version of Soarin, M:S bumped to Tier 2, I wanted to get the kids a better schedule. As anyone knows who was trying on Saturday or early Sunday, website kept crashing. I especially had difficulty because there are 10 large groups, one with 25 people.

    Anyway, wanted to reply to this since I found something that may be relevant.

    Hey fellow Beach Clubbers, I can't for the life of me remember what the brand of candle was that smelt exactly like the Beach Club Lobby? Hopefully I can get them to ship to the UK too :)

    I'm trying to get ahead of the game for my Wife's birthday!

    Dee, can you put me down for a stay at BC on 14th June 2017 :)

    I was informed of this on this thread a couple of months ago. Its called Rainkissed Leaves "found" at Bath and Body Works. I say "found" because I immediately went to the store to get some for my DD and DDIL for our upcoming June trip, only to find out that that fragrance has been retired and the store didn't carry it anymore. However, you can still find it on their website. Unfortunately I couldn't find candles under that name but they do have shower gel, lotion and hand soaps so I did order a few of those for the girls.

    If you have better luck in finding candles with that scent please let me know!

    I was just going back in my Facebook feed from last year looking for something and I found a post I was tagged in about Disney smells. I don't know if I ever posted it here or not. I haven't tried ordering anything here, so I can't vouch for the quality.

    :thumbsup2

    I may well give it a shot of the U.K. Shipping is reasonable! thanks Dee :D

    Oh nice, I didn't know they added the time screens there too! I knew they added them at the boardwalk inn and in some other resorts. That's really usefull :)

    Thanks for the info!

    I don't know if this is in the Room info post, but I was worried that my laptop would not fit in the wall safe as they are a fair bit smaller than the box ones elsewhere in WDW. I can confirm that a 15'' MacBook Pro fits' in the save with around 2 inches to spare around in all 3 dimensions :)

    We are at Yacht Club right now checked in on Saturday I requested a high floor close to elevator and we got both. We have standard view which is a group of trees not bad at all. I feel like the room is still in good shape no issues but I'm looking forward to the refresh :D. I believe some convention folks checked in yesterday so I
    We will see how much busier it gets around the Yacht Club. Weather and crowds have been perfect!! I just love it here at this resort IMO it's the perfect place :beach:

    Hi All, our family is booked in BC November 15-22, and since this is the first time we're staying on property with both kids (4yo son & 2yo daughter), I was hoping the Beach Club experts could give me some tips and hints.

    First, we're booked for a Garden or Woods view room; any special requests we should make about the room or location?

    Second, we'll be there for our daughter's 2nd birthday. Is it worth making any noise about that other than ordering a cake for one of our dinners?

    Any other thoughts or tips are welcome

    First of all Welcome to the DIS :welcome: There are many folks here who will be glad to answer your questions.
    For room requests, what is important to you. Ground floor, higher floor, near elevator, quiet location etc. It really is up to what you want.
    I'm not sure what you mean by "making noise" about your daughters birthday. But if you think about it hundreds, if not thousands of folks are celebrating something every day at WDW. They can not, and do not do something for everyone. I would suggest getting a birthday button when you check in and have her wear it - all week if you like. She will get lots of "Happy Birthdays" both from CM's and other guests. You may get a cupcake and candle at dinner or Mickey Heads decorating the table - you may get nothing,
    You already have the best plan considered which is to order her a cake to be delivered.
    Have a Wonderful Trip

    We were celebrating DD's birthday last July. She wore the birthday button all week, she got a cupcake or other special dessert at every table service restaurant we ate at. Also a birthday card from Pooh and friends at Crystal Palace, and one day when we returned to our room at BC there were balloons and a card from Mickey waiting on her.

    Thanks, As for what my preferences are, that's just it; Not having stayed at BC before, I'm not sure what's optimal for the kids. Our last trip was pre-daughter and I traded my timeshare for an off-site. I was hoping that those with small kids & toddlers who have stayed here before can give me some insight into what worked best for them and what didn't. Were you happier closer to EPCOT, a higher floor, etc? Also, I'm not intimately familiar with the room set-ups. Are there some rooms better than others for setting up a Pack n' Play for the little one to sleep in?

    Regarding her birthday, I realize WDW is a prime destination for celebrating various events and I don't expect a parade in her honor. I was just curious what to expect if I made a note of it, and if so, where to make the note.

    We had a lagoon view, so I can't really recommend an area for garden view. We were on the 4th floor overlooking the volleyball courts. I would just make sure to request a full balcony, we also requested to be closer to the lobby for quicker access to the pool and marketplace.

    Call the reservations line and ask them to put a note on your reservation that you are celebrating her birthday.

    I believe this was stated earlier, but where does Uber pick you up when you are staying at YC? Is it near where the taxis wait?

    We have reservations at the yacht club the week they've announced they are starting renovations. We just made them recently before they announced it. I went back on Expedia both yesterday and today and today they're saying they're completely sold out. I have a couple questions. 1. Why would they be sold out overnight? Is that because they're shutting down a portion of it for renovations? Or do they really fill out so quickly. 2. Also how badly we be affected by the renovation?
