    Forgive my failing memory (it's been way too long between visits). Am I correct that you can get to the Beach Club from EPCOT via the International Gateway? :unsure: We're thinking of just heading to Cape May for dinner since we can't decide on a place in the park.

    Yes ma'am. When you leave the IG you go up a little hill then you can stay to the right and get to the BC. If you go to the left it will take you to the Boardwalk. It all circles around though.

    You can take a walkway to the left (coming out of the IG) without having to go up the hill. It runs along the canal, and under the bridge.

    Cape May is a great choice! They've changed it some, and it's not as wonderful as it used to be, but the food is still quite nice and basically the same. They have added crab legs though, but they changed their lovely chicken. :( :(

    Let me know when you are going!

    Are the crab legs in a different area to the rest of the food :unsure: I am seriously allergic to crab, but we have never been to Cape May and are thinking about going, because I know you say it's a good buffet :)

    No, the crab legs are on the main buffet. If you are very allergic to crab, I would call the restaurant directly and speak with the Chef before going. It is cooked separately, of course, but that isn't always sufficient when someone is very allergic to something.

    Remember, I only think it's good because I can eat my weight in clams. :D (And so can our boys)!

    Oh ok, I used to carry an epi pen, but over the years I've not bothered and just made sure I kept away from it.

    I know the kitchens of WDW are truly clean, clean, clean but food allergies can be very serious and any Chef would want to know that someone had a serious one.

    I can vouch for that if my experience watching the chefs work at V & A`s from the Chef`s Table is anything to go by. :yes:
    The number of times that the various pans were washed and scrubbed in scalding hot water had to be seen to be believed and everywhere had the appearance of an operating theatre.

    Our "insider" tells us the same for the other kitchens, too Slowhand. He says the comparison between and Disney kitchen and the other place he works (non-Disney) is unbelievable. So much so, that he no longer eats or drinks anything out of the other place. :eek:

    I know, right?! :eek: Part of it is that the management has really fallen off, too. You can't have a decent restaurant if the managers don't care, or don't know what they are doing.

    It's a shame the meal we had there was really nice, so the only good thing about that place now then is the server :D

    We always enjoyed ourselves there too, but we no longer go. Upper management changed and that resulted in major changes to the restaurant. He only works there one (sometimes 2) nights per week now, so even that isn't a reason to go.

    It's a real shame because it was convenient and very reasonably priced. The restaurants in that area are all chains, but that one stood out. At least for awhile. :sigh:

    Beach Club is a nice hotel better than Boardwalk IMO. Children will love the pool there. When you check in I am sure that you can ask being close to the elevator or an exit. Walking from Beach club to Epcot is much shorter than walking from BW to Epcot.
