Edit ! I found my own answer LOL. They are offering two items as snack credits.

Good morning, now that beaches and cream is in a temporary location and a walk up only. Does anybody know if any of their ice cream qualifies as a snack credit on the dining plan? Thank you
In the past, at the to go counter, cones and ice cream sandwiches were available as snack credits. I don’t know what the current situation is though with the temporary location.

Its been a few weeks since we returned from a fab stay at the YC.

Our 1st time here, usually BC people but no more, YC all the way.

Room was booked as a GV, room 3087. Daybed and full balcony with view of gazeebo and lake to the right. It was amazing, loved the room and used the balcony every day.

Watched people run from the boat in the downpours and enjoyed the morning sunrise. And watching illuminations from the balcony.

Mousekeeping was fab, she was so nice and accommodating when we were either still in the room or came back during the cleaning. she even gave the kids colouring sheets and crayons and on the last day, left us a lovely gift. We also got towel animals. Under the bed was handy for the suit cases.

Pool was busy in the afternoon 3ish, trying to get a bed. Biggest gripe was the family next to us who up and left leaving 6 beds with towels on. I moved them.

Swam at night and early morning which was lovely. Glad B&C was still open, enjoyed many ice creams.

Had sunken treasures many a time, no bother. Nice to see alot of the same staff.

The gondola looks ok. I was a bit worried about how it was going to intrude on the BW but until it opens and see where people exit, I'm still not sure!! The design of the station is nice tho.

All in all, everyone was friendly and we had an amazing time before moving onto the Gran Destino. Amazing too!!

Posting a few pics of the room and views .Screenshot_20190914-235013_Gallery.jpgScreenshot_20190914-163720_Gallery-810x1665.jpgScreenshot_20190914-163713_Gallery-810x1665.jpgScreenshot_20190914-163554_Gallery-810x1665.jpg20190914_164009-810x411.jpgScreenshot_20190914-163930_Gallery-810x1665.jpgScreenshot_20190914-163757_Gallery-810x1665.jpgScreenshot_20190914-163810_Gallery-810x1665.jpgScreenshot_20190914-163901_Gallery-810x1665.jpgScreenshot_20190914-163849_Gallery-810x1665.jpg

    Hi! We check into Beach Club in four days in a garden view room. Can anyone tell me what the hairdryers are like please? Are they really cool air with barely any blow? I have a travel one that I can bring, but I’ve already over packed so would like to leave it behind if needs be! I like a hot, strong hairdryer!

    I believe the hairdryers are the same at BC as YC, but maybe someone can confirm.

    Wow!!!

    Thank you so much for the awesome, detailed review and the fabulous pictures!

    So glad that you had a nice trip, and that you forged a great relationship with the housekeeper.

    Finalizing my shopping list for our Thursday check-in at BC. Are the coffee makers still the cuisinart pod kind? Or are they keurig?

    Yes.

    Does that help? No?

    Some, we are not sure how many, of the Cuisinart pod machines have been replaced with Keurigs in BC rooms.

    You could have either type in your room.

    Sorry we don't have a better answer.

    You can ask for additional coffee set ups if you need more.

    Anyone know if there is something happening at the BC the week of June 22nd 2020? Its showing no availability for every single room category. If I do Sunday, June 21st to Sunday, June 28th it has every room available. But if I change it to Monday, June 22nd to Monday, June 29th or Sunday, June 28th nothing is left. Weird. Is it just busy time? All I can think of is Sunday is father's day? Or do they not want people to travel on Mondays? YC is all sold out too except for club level. I didn't know if there was a conference or what?

    We were in 2085 last year. It was the best location! One floor down to the lobby and beautiful views of the fireworks every night. I never wanted to leave the room. Now I am missing it more than ever :) So glad you had a great trip!!!!

    The Disney website is in a chronic state of dysfunction, so the lack of availability could possibly be due to a failure to make that booking period (or variably, any others) available at any particular moment.

    Customer service is not what it used to be at WDW.

    Guests now have to waste their time returning to the site, repeatedly, to try and book when the system is functioning in between breakdowns.

    Another problem is that the room category you are trying to book is unavailable for one of the days, so the system throws out your entire reservation. Again, since we are dealing with a poor system for reservations, there is no means provided to explain to you what the "problem" is so you just get dumped and you can't make a reservation for all of your days.

    There may be some fixes to this problem. One option is to break your trip up into two separate time periods. For example, try booking Monday to Thursday and then Thursday to Monday to complete your week. There may be availability this way.

    You can call the resort reservations number (407) 934-7639, but be advised that the person that you may be speaking with may not realize what the problem is so they will just say that nothing is available. If this is the case them ask them to split your reservation into a smaller number of days for the same week and search like that. You may have to break it down to 6 days and then 1 day, especially if your room category is not available at the beginning or end of your trip.

    I'm finding when I call Disney on the phone, the CM's I am speaking with don't fully have the grasp of the ins and outs of the Disney reservation system. If you find that to be the case, I advise ending the call and then calling back to try with a different CM.

    Good luck and welcome to the new level of Disney Customer service. Budget cuts, poor retention and low wages in addition to inadequate training and poor supervision are now the name of the game at Disney.

    Hi - We will be visiting in November. We usually stay at Swan & Dolphin, but are excited to spend a week at Yacht & Beach. We have a toddler who loves macaroni & cheese and hot dogs (both of which we could easily get at S&D). I looked at the children's menu for Hurricane Hannah's - but I don't see either on the menu. Does any one know if there is anywhere at either of these resorts to get either of these items? (Usually we come back to our hotel for a mid-day 2-3 hr nap and then end up eating dinner at the resort before going back to the parks). This mama says Thank you SO much!

    I'm not aware of them being served at YC or BC. There is a kiosk on the Boardwalk which has both of them:
