One thing I was sorry I did not try was the YC concierge. Any experiences on the concierge that someone has I would love to hear. I know that two of the YC concierge staff were on loan to the Polynesian when we last stayed and they were great and knew how to get things done for us.

What is the food like at the concierge lounge?

Steve

YC concierge is my favorite!   I will be staying there for my 5th time in July, just 38 days away!!!

The lounge is beautiful, just redone less than a year ago.
Very elegant and tasteful, with reds and blues, and a very elegant nautical theme.
There are several small tables set up, I've never had a problem getting a table for breakfast, or during the evening.

The lounge is open from 7am - 10pm
7am - 10:30am:  continental breakfast offering cereal, oatmeal, fruit - melon, cantelope, bananas, donuts, bagels, toast (4 kinds), english muffins, danish, coffee cake (varies day to day)   coffee, tea, milk (skim and whole), juice.

11:00 - 3:00pm :  afternoon snacks
chips n' salsa, pretzels, goldfish, popcorn (white cheddar), apples, cookies (choc chip, oatmeal raisin) gummy worms, peanut mix...   coffee, tea, soda, water, lemonade

3:00 - 4:30, afternoon tea
includes everything listed under afternoon snacks, plus a featured cake (varies by day... examples:  choc cake, white cake w/coconut frosting, flan, strawberry shortcake...)

5:00 - 7:00pm:   evening hor'deuvres
4 - 5 appetizers (vary, ex:  chicken strips, scallops w/bacon, mini corndogs, quesidillas, coconut chicken, veggie wraps, hummus w/dip, quiche lorraine,...)  cheese & crackers, vegetable crudite,  peanut butter n' Jelly (uncrustables), pudding cups, cookies....
Wine (white, blush and red)  soda, lemonade, coffee, tea, water...

8:00 - 10:00pm:  late evening desserts!
a Featured cake each evening, either choc cake, coconut cake, flan, cheesecake...etc...plus 5 - 7 assorted mini pastries (creme puffs, napoleans, eclairs, fruit cake..etc..)
cupcakes, brownies, cookies....
Cordials, usually about 4 - 5 varieties (baileys, amaretto, gand marnier...etc)
coffee, tea, water, soda...

The concierge staff at the Yacht and Beach club work together, the lounges vary by decor, but are set up the same and food offerings at both resorts is the same.
YC - nautical elegant, with red, blue and gold hues
BC - softer, more casual elegant
Both have brand new furnishings.

When they re-did the lounges, they got rid of the large TV armoirs, there is now a small T.V set up in designated childrens area of the lounges, with small child size chairs around it.  - they did this to give the lounges a more formal atmosphere, rather than the TV being the focal point.

The staff, as I begun to say... is made up of some of the finest people I have ever met!  
Staying at the Yacht or Beach concierge is a real treat!  Luxury and pampering, unparalled at WDW!

Did I answer your question Tikiman...:)  or do you have more?  this is my favorite topic, so keep the questions coming!!!   :)

Yes that was a great answer. Now I remember the reason the YC CMs were over at the polynesian because the YC was being worked on.

Does the YC have one bedroom suites like at the AKL? I know all the deluxe resorts have suites but I did not know if the YC had a smaller suite that would be nice for 2 people. I love the Polynesian suites but they are better for big groups and they are much more expensive than even the concierge rooms. The AKL suite was a nice size and not too much more than our concierge room.

I would like to try a suite on my next visit to the YC if it is not too much more.

Steve,
Yes, the Y&B club both have Junior suites.
They start at $525 per night (value season)
they consist of 2 queen beds, with a separate sitting area.
The BC has glass french doors that separate the two rooms, adn the YC has a partial wall to separate the areas.

concierge is included if you book these rooms!

after that starts theTurret suites at the YC, which are about $1150 to start!
