    Thank you very much for responding! That stinks you didn't get to try the appetizers, but at least you got to experience the other offerings!! I'm looking forward to seeing the lounge and updated rooms!! Definitely makes it a bit more exciting!! Happy you had a great trip!

    We received this for or stay in the beginning of June too, so I'd assume it may be able by then too. Will update when we go :)

    Marketplace opens Mid-July but there will be a temporary option for you.

    Photo update as of Sunday, April 30. The Fittings and Fairings retail store refurbishment in the Yacht Club is still on-going. The inside has been gutted and is still an empty space. The quick service side was supposed to be finished and open by mid-May, but they are behind and that opening will be postponed. The resort's retail "store" has been relocated to a portion of the lobby, near the Captain's Grille.

    So when all is finished at the Yacht Club, there will be two counter service options? The Market at A&C and Fittings and Fairings? I'm a little confused as to why two!

    If any of you follow Disney Food Blog, she posted a good live video today of the Market today and it's offerings.
    I'm getting more and more excited to be 19 days away!

    Is the video still available? I can't find it. (BTW, we're 19 days out today!)

    I am currently eating at the Captain's Grille (Ariels). I just asked a CM when it will reopen, she said they are being told October 2017. I don't know how reliable the information is though. Here are some pictures. IMG_3970.JPG IMG_3972.JPG

    staying here June 2 to 4 before heading over to monorail resort. do any refurbishments affect the pool / outside? or are they mainly dining / shops?

    YC is big draw to us due to B&C, pools, and Epcot!

    The lake side of the resort and Stormalong Bay are fine. The area with the quiet pool and tennis court is full of construction equipment and vehicles (with the pool still accessible, although not very quiet). If sitting on the balcony is important to you, I would not want a room overlooking that area. Otherwise, you may run into some little signs of construction around the place, but nothing too intrusive.

    Do we know which floors have been completed and what floors are currently being worked on? Or is there a planned schedule? We are staying in mid-September at the Yacht Club and I'd like to try to request the new rooms, etc

    From what I was able to see last week, floors 3-5 have been completed. I did go to the second floor and the themeing was the old style.

    I'm here now and they are doing the 2nd floor. Somehow we accidentally pressed floor 2 on the elevator and the entire floor is closed off. There's a sign when you stop. I'd imagine by September you'll be good to go on an updated room.
    Other than this forum, and the few signs I've seen, I'd hardly know construction was taking place. I've added two pictures of the new Marker at Ale and Compass. It's really nice and you can now refill your mugs there (at a Coca Cola free style machine, to boot), which makes it much easier than walking out to hurricane Hannah's.

    This won't help much. We keep missing the hot appetizers as well. Tonight I glanced briefly and it was pigs in a blanket, assorted cheeses, assorted salads. It wasn't anything over the top. I will say that we've really enjoyed having it as an option. We love the breakfast, around mid day it's the same chips with hummus and ranch and carrots and other veggies. Gummy bears, yogurt covered pretzels, chocolate covered cranberries, and cookies. We've mainly gotten our money's worth with beer and wine.

    Thanks for this. If you were to enter this new area via the front (not the small stairs), what is toward your right where there was another section of the gift shop?

    I believe that part is currently under construction, behind walls, and will be retail. The cooking is off to the left as you enter from the main entrance.
