They will assign you a planner and then coordinate with you decor, food, location , etc. you could actually have a party for thousands of people I guess. Our parties have always been for smaller groups. Disneytravelbabble.com is a good place to start. The site is owned by Lurkyloo here on the disboards.
Thanks for the quick response!! I will check out that site!!

If you have dessert party questions, head over to the Disney Weddings & Honeymoons board. A lot of the people planning (myself included) do dessert parties in addition to traditional receptions. We have pictures!

We will be visiting the Dark Side first in July and then coming back to WDW for the rest of Florida vacation.

Now, all I have to do is sneak in a Christmas time vacation and I'm all set for the year.
That's fantastic!!!

I'll add you to the list. Again! Double Dark Side for you!




We are doing the same-ish trip the week before you. Have you been before? FYI- My Welcome Foolish Muggles trip report details my family's first visit to "The Dark Side" in July 2011 and has lots of tips and Disney comparisons.

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list. Right above me!

Just thought I'd throw this out there...this link has a detailed floor map of Yacht Club, with simulated views from each room from google earth. Not sure how accurate it is...it only divides into water and standard view rooms. But kind of fun. (Doesn't look like they have this for BC or BCV?)

Just booked, our first BC trip!

Just booked our first ever trip to the Beach Club for the summer! We were able to get a great rate using our Disney Visa. I know that this thread has alot of information about the resort, but any special tips or advice would be appreciated!

We will be checking into the BCV May 11 to May 17. I am so excited, we have been counting the days for almost a full year and now I can't believe its almost here.

My DH and I have been discussing when and how much to tip the valet to take care of our luggage. Do you tip the valet that helps take the luggage from the car and/or the valet who brings it up to the room? Do you tip each one $2 to $3 a bag? We don't want to slight anyone, but with 4 of us there will be a lot of bags.

Please help!

We had our hearts set on the Yacht/Beach Club for our July 2014 trip, which was supposed to be originally me, DH, DD16 and her BFF. DS18 didn't want to join us

Since then I have convinced him he needs to have one last family holiday before he goes to Universityand my DH's niece has asked if she can join us on our trip also, so now it will be me, DH, DS18, DD16, and DN16, which makes us a party of five.

I was concerned about all 5 of us having enough space in a YC/BC room, and worried about not getting a daybed, so we are considering changing to the Poly instead for the bigger rooms and a guaranteed daybed.

The Poly looks lovely and the rooms will all have been refurbished by then, however, we really did have our hearts set on the YC/BC - my DH is a rock fan and wants to have time to enjoy the Sounds Like Summer concerts, and we were looking forward to walking to Epcot and DHS.

For anyone who has stayed at the YC/BC as a family of 5 (adults/teenagers) did you feel cramped in the room or did you feel comfortable with the amount of space?

Thanks for your help, we are so confused and would like some advice.

I have seen the pictures of the two types of daybeds and the rollaway cot on page 1 - the small daybed and the rollaway cot don't look big enough for an adult or an old teenager to sleep on - what happens if you get a room with one of these options and there is no where for the fifth person to sleep? Am i panicking over nothing are these bigger than they look? My DS is almost 6' and my DD and DN are 5'7".

Be sure and take time to enjoy the resort!! SAB is very relaxing mid-day between park visits.

Grab a seat during the evening movies if your not too tired (like we usually are )

Have a nice ice cream treat at Beaches & Cream, or just sit back in the lobby with a cup of coffee and people watch (nothing like seeing how excited all the kids are before heading to the parks)
