Oh, come on, it's just a little froggie - we here in western new york have tons (well, maybe not tons) of them in our back yard in the summer - speaking of summer -
WHERE IS IT???

It could be worse squeezle, remember Florida is also known for those much larger amphibians. We use to see 2 alligators in the lagoon out by the villas quiet pool as you walk to the parking lot. Now I would hate to wake up to that outside my patio door.

No jacuzzi in the BC quiet pool, eh? That's too bad. From what I understand, our room is near the quiet pool and I wa so looking forward to the jacuzzi. There's only one near SB?

Anyone know what the weather & crowds are like in late April/early May??

There's a hot tub near the villas quiet pool. I'll be there with you 5/1-5/5. Crowds were really nice the last time I went during this time (2 years ago). Never waited more than 23 minutes for a major attraction. We never used FP.

I am loving all these pictures!! We are probably going to stay at the BCV on our Nov stay. These pictures are making that decision very easy!!

I have a question about the pirate ship on the beach. Is there a kiddie pool there? I saw a picture somewhere of a kiddie pool with a kiddie slide. Where is that located at SAB?

We have never stayed at these resorts but have taken some pics of them when staying at the BW.

Here's the marina at the YC:


Here's the beach area with the pirate ship and YC in the background:


This is a picture from inside the BC. It is off the corridor when you are walking towards the gift shop/marketplace and Sandcastle Club:

Hi - Thanks for posting the 2/08 pictures of the 2 bedroom BCV. We'll be going at the end of April and we were wondering what the TV situation was. We were hoping to be able to hook up my nephew's Mac mini to the TV but that looks pretty old. (He can't use a laptop due to CP).

OK, since hot tubs were brought up.....is there a HOT tub (not a cold tub ) at the Yacht club? I so love to sit in one with a drink (or two...!) after a long day in the parks! DH thinks I'm crazy sitting in a hot tub in FL when it's 80 degrees out, but I love my tubs....here in IL I'm in our jacuzzi/tub ALL the time to get warm from all this yuck cold weather we've had!
