The Doors to OUR Dream House !

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Beach%20Club%20Property/HWS6-17-09105.jpg


For all us owners and for all who pray for availability at the 7 month mark -- Here is a photo tour of the BCV.


Inside the doorway are these lovely pictures on both sides of the walkthrough:

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Hollywood%20Studios%20Day%201/HWS6-17-09062.jpg


As you enter you see this lovely table with flowers awaiting your return :

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Beach%20Club%20Property/disneyworld2009301.jpg

I like to think of this flower table as the middle of our wheel of choices. You know how the Imagineers love the wheel and spoke system. :love:

If you turn to your right and take that path you will end up in "The Drawing Room" - please let your kids know that there are not any crayons and no drawing is actually being done :lmao:

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Beach%20Club%20Property/disneyworld2009301.jpg

On the left side of the room is this Doll House:

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Beach%20Club%20Property/HWS6-17-09111.jpg

This is also on the left side of the room:

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Hollywood%20Studios%20Day%201/HWS6-17-09061.jpg


Looking straight forward in to the room there is a tv and all sorts of little chairs to relax in :

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Beach%20Club%20Property/HWS6-17-09110.jpg

Now we walk back out to the flowers and the center of our wheel. If we take the path to the left we end up going into "The Breezeway"

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Hollywood%20Studios%20Day%201/HWS6-17-09059.jpg

As you look to your left there are these small chairs for sitting:

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Hollywood%20Studios%20Day%201/HWS6-17-09058.jpg

Then we have a nice couch flanked by beautiful shelves:

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Hollywood%20Studios%20Day%201/HWS6-17-09056.jpg

Up above a painting of our beloved property:

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Hollywood%20Studios%20Day%201/HWS6-17-09055.jpg

The corner of the left side of the room:

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Hollywood%20Studios%20Day%201/HWS6-17-09057.jpg

This is the right side of the room :

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Hollywood%20Studios%20Day%201/HWS6-17-09117.jpg




If you walk through these doors in "The Breezeway" you end up outside at "The Quiet Pool"

We now return to the flower table ( middle of wheel :thumbsup2) and we walk staight forward :

This will lead us to this beautiful arrangement on the wall in front of us :

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm234/turtle3album/Beach%20Club%20Property/disneyworld2009294.jpg

On the left wall there is this picture:

On the right wall there are these elevators to take you to your Villa:

Before heading into our Villa lets stop by and look at the laundry room:

Even a place to sit and watch tv if you get dizzy from watching the dryer spin !!

Thanks for the pics.

We arrive at BCV on May 30th. We booked it, just for our little one to play at SB.

Great pics.

Last year we visitied YC/BC and I took some beautiful pics of my daughter in the Grand Lobby.

Cannot wait for our stay!

Yes, this thread is long overdue. I have owned at VWL and enjoy their thread but purchased BCV a while back and often wondered how nice it would be to share stories. Last November we were at BCV for a quick 2 night stay following a Gator footbal game. We arrived at 8 A.M. to get an early start, and I politely asked if there were any rooms available. The front desk castmember named You replied "Just a minute and I'll see if there is a magical moment". Within ten minutes we were in our room. A great way to start our ownership at the BCV.

Awesome Photos JADE1. Can you please add to your post what your room number was ? I see it is a one bedroom -- gorgeous ! I bought a Nikon D3000 - after my disappointment with my cheap kodak easy share :lmao:
I can't wait until October so I can get more pictures of my house :rotfl:


Good luck :wizard: to all of you waiting on contracts to come thorugh. Buying our contract is one of the best decisions I ever made ! I still kick myself that I didn't have time to do resale - and I am very impatient ! Oh well 98.00 a point seemed like a steal at the time :laughing:

Great pictures!!! We were just there a couple of weeks ago---our favorite resort...May I ask where the laundry room is? I was in the villas and asked the DVC rep posted there and he didn't know... We ended up not needing it, but are going back with family in July and it would be handy to know and not have to ask around for the location.

Thanks again!

All of the one bedrooms have their own washer and dryer in the room. But if you are staying in a studio the laundry room is located on floor #4 ( there may be another one but that is the one I used) - you will need your key to get in. No quarters needed :banana:


That gelato looks SO good -- we made so many trips to Beaches and Cream that I never had any. This time I will for sure !

We love the BCV and while we are not owners there we still call it our home. If we ever add on to our points it will be there. We never have a hard time booking at our 7 month mark though. We will be there on May 9 to the 15th and then again for five days the end of Aug. Thanks for starting the thread. Awsome pictures.

and the Studios with a great pool, Beaches and Cream, movies on the beach and a relaxing atmosphere with that great resort smell.:rotfl2:

Great pictures everyone! Here are a couple:

Room 407 BCV
Looking left from the balcony of BCV room 407, a dedicated 2BR. Not a particularly scenic view but it was quiet and relaxing.

Another BCV owner joining in! Our first stay was suppose to be March 2009 for an extended-family spring break trip (rented points). Sadly, my then-6 month old son became sick and at 1:00am the morning of our departure I started re-packing everything so my DH & DS (3yo) could meet up with the rest of the family while I stayed behind with my little guy. DH loved it and after a few months of debate, we bought a contract resale. We are going to WDW with my side of the family next month, but could only get rooms together at BWV. So, I'll have to wait until our June 2011 trip with yet another "section" of the family to try out my wonderful BCV first-hand!

And after all those family-trips, DH and I may have to run away for an adults-only stay! :laughing:

A very happy BCV owner here. We have been owners since Feb 2002. Our most recent stay was March 8-12. It was wonderful of course. We took my brother and SIL and they couldn't believe how great it was and how close it was to Epcot. The new flat screens are wonderful, just wish Disney would offer a few more channels.

Love the new thread.....thanks Turtle31 and everyone else.:surfweb:

We're BCV owners, too. We purchased the morning sales opened in Feb of 02 and have added on three more contracts. We normally stay 3 or 4 times a year for 5 night stays. In the future, our stays will probably be longer but less often due to the reapportionment of points. Mixed feeling on that.

Another BCV owner here since day one, by far my favorite resort.
I too have 3 contracts there, and have stayed there 20+ times.
Won't be back home until Sept and Nov, but I do have 3 trips between now and Sept so I will be getting my WDW fix.
Enjoyed all the pictures even though I probably have all the exact ones in my archives.
Thanks for starting this thread, I'll be checking back regularly.

When my DH and I went on our first trip to BCV in June it was so hot. I was finally able to convince DH that we should go in Oct. Here in Colorado my kids follow a modified calendar for school and have two weeks off for a fall break. I was thinking - cheaper points, cooler weather, and way less crowds. I was able to book BCV at the 11 month mark for our 12 day trip. Now I keep reading about Food & Wine Festival and how busy it will be. And DH who is on a huge fitness kick and doesn't drink wine says - he only wants to go to Epcot one day of our 10 park days !! Oh yeah and btw he also is telling me he doesn't want me to pay for Mickey's not so scary Halloween Party because he doesn't care if it has a special parade !! Will someone please help me calm down :lmao:
How are the crowds at Food and Wine Festival at Epcot and other Parks? Weather ? Has anyone paid for the MNSSHP and felt it is something we couldn't skip doing once ? October is unchartered territory for me, freaking me out a little bit now. :scared1:

Turtle31, October is one of my favorite months at WDW. The weather is usually warm but not humid. Perfect for parks and swimming. Evenings can cool off as you would expect.

Most parks aren't bad at all except for Columbus Day weekend. Epcot on weekends is the exception as it can be jammed. Evenings at Epcot are also busier as locals pop into F&W I think.

We haven't done the party so no help there.

We'll be there this October as well.:cool1:

jade1, loving your photos as always.:surfweb:

F&W can be busy especially weekends like the PP mentioned. What we have done is start in WorldShowcase right at 11 and just keep on snacking. Takes a while before the booths get busy.

I love MNSSHP sadly we are missing it this year since they moved it to a late Sept start. If your DH doesn't want to go than just go without him.

Going in May (can't come fast enough) for a boys only trip with 4 and 3 year old. Then go back in Aug (week before school starts) with my 7 yr old daughter. Then family vacation in November and adults only trip with our good friends in Feb. Hmmmmmmmmmm can you get sick of BCV? Well I'm willing to try and see if it is possible:rotfl:

Our younger son and I went to Cape May for breakfast last trip for the first time in many years. Our server was wonderful, the characters were fun and the food was good. The breakfast buffet at Captain's Grille is basically the same (pancakes there but not at Cape May IIRC) for a lower price and you can order a la carte, so we will continue to walk over there more often than breakfast at Cape May.

Love breakfast from the Marketplace, too. Fantastic made to order parfaits.

Speaking of BCMarketplace, did everyone see the sad news that corpcomp posted? No more gelato. :sad1:

There are people who go twice on their trips! We were in the car the other day talking about the trip, the halloween party, trick or treating and grandma meeting us there.

Thank you for the pix of my home sweet DVC home. I like to close my eyes and picture myself in the Solarium with my morning coffee and the Florida sun beaming in. Or curled up in the drawing room with a summer beach trash novel. Or carrying my noodle through the lobby on my way to Stormalong Bay. I've stayed at the other DVC resorts and they have their charms, but there's no place like the BCV for me!:love:

We LOVED the buffet at Cape May - in fact so much I think the characters got sick of us in the morning :laughing: It was nice to be able to roll out of bed and walk to a character breakfast. My DH and DS favorite was the mickey waffles. My DD loved the yogurt and chocolate chip muffins. I loved the breakfast potatos and the biscuits and gravy. The only thing I thought was better at 1900 Park Fare was the make your own omelette, but I thought I had read somewhere that they are offering this now too-- but not sure myself. Here are some of my pictures from our many trips for breakfast. And they also passed out these cute little aqua colored beads-- I think we have enough to pass them out the next trip back :)

DINNER

The dinner here was VERY good -- tons of choices seafood and lots of non-seafood too. My DH favorite was the clam chowder, I enjoyed the tempra fried cod, and I think I gained ten pounds on the corn bread-- yum ! I also read when making my adr's that they have added snow crab legs -- I am starving right about now !!
Also the deserts are great - but be sure to know that for some reason the desserts are split and end up in two different places-- you veterns know what I am talking about. As you come into the resturant if you walk straight - separte from all the other food you will find an island of desserts that includes the oreo bon-bons, they are not to be missed. I don't have any pictures of the evening buffet as I left the camera packed up due to the lack of characters. But for those with kiddos, mine loved the dinner because the tablecloth is one huge piece of paper and they get to color all over it. That is a nice touch !

Sounds like you will have a blast ! I haven't even researched or looked at MNSSHP because I know if I do I will want to do it ! And to be honest everytime we go in June/August we end up staying at the parks way to late and end up dying by the end of the 11 days. I think I am looking forward to being forced to leave MK by 7:00 - that way I can head back to BCV and enjoy the pool and movie on the beach ! But who knows I may throw caution to the wind and just force DH to be dragged along :laughing:

Thank you for the dining info. Your pictures are great! Do you need an ADR for the dinner buffet? One of my daughters is not a seafood fan, I'm guessing there is a chicken item or something else. How convenient to walk downstairs to a nice meal! By the way, we love beaches and cream, except for the wait. We usually have 8 and next visit 9, our oldest son got married! We have a nice trip to Washington D.C. in June, but all we talk about is the BCV trip Spring Break 2011!

We have owned at VWL since 2001, but just recently bought a resale at BCV. We have only stayed there once (before we were owners) and really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to staying there next year (2011) during Food and Wine. DH and I go every year, but got our points this year too late for the 11 month window. There was nothing available when I tried to book, so we will be at AKV for the first time instead!

Hoping to get in for Jan 3-6. Before our Panama Canal cruise. June 3 can't come fast enough!

Lexi, you will LOVE the Panama Canal cruise. DH, DD and I were on the EB cruise in 2008. It was most definitely the trip of a lifetime!

LOL, so glad that your Colorado picture is not BCV! As for global warming and big storms, here's info from the Environmental Defense Foundation:
"Studies show that global warming will increase the frequency or intensity of many kinds of extreme weather. While we can't attribute a particular heat wave or hurricane to global warming, the trends are clear: Global warming loads the atmospheric dice to roll "heat wave" or "intense storm" more often."

I am so excited for you !! Please do let us all know what you think once you have had your first stay. In my trip report I told about my own purchase. We had been to DisneyWorld for 11 days on deluxe dining and we were staying at Port Orleans Riverside, but we ate at The Yachtsman Steak House, Cape May and Beaches and Cream. So when it came to making the purchase I did it over the phone, never having stayed at the property just based on reviews and the time we spent at the resturants !!
Our first trip was AMAZING and I can't wait for our next !! :)

Omg I am so excited will be at the BCV for 5 nights starting Mothers day.
No better place as far as we are concerned. However the AKL is awsome with savana view. But BCV still #1.:dance3:

Yes and no.

I definitely think it should be bigger when I'm waiting 45 minutes for a table, but once I'm inside I like the small, intimate feel. :)

This is one of our favorite restaurants in WDW and I'd hate to see it changed too much. Of course, we like to go there when we are staying at BCV, but we find it a great break from the crowds when we are touring Epcot during our non-BCV trips.

I'm sure to come back to this thread time and again. Love the pics!!

We're getting excited for our first stay at BCV. Would love to hear more from you about your experiences! (just dd and me, just after she graduates high school).

I saw on the map there is a salon/barber at BCV? Never knew that.

We arrive at BCV on Sun. June 13 for five nights :banana:

At the Beach Club itself, if you go to the gift shop, you'll find a counter service where you can buy various sandwiches at breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, as well as a small selection of groceries and snacks.

Outside, near the pool, there's Hurricane Hanna's, basically typical fast food offerings. Accross the lake, there's a pizza window but I don't know that it's considered a CS credit if you are on the dining plan.

Personally, because it's SO close to Epcot, if we're not going far that day, we go into Epcot and have a CS meal for lunch in the WS. *LOVE* Epcot and it's quite literally a 5 minute walk from the villas to there. Especially if you take the backway that doesn't pass through the BC lobby.

The boardwalk pizza window is not on the meal plan so you can't use CS credits there.

We do the same thing you do, we love walking over to Epcot and grabbing something there. Usually I'll grab something in Morocco for my wife and I and the kids will get something in one of the other countries.

LOVE Tangierine Cafe! THe first year I went, I was not a fan, but I had ordered some sort of chicken burger thing ( which imho was not moroccan or middle eastern at all ), but last time I had the wrap sampler, omg so good! And the Baklava...

Hey guys... had to join this group. We just got back from our very first stay at BCV and I am in :love: What more can you ask for than SAB and the 5 min walk to the International Gateway?!?! My favorite thing to do was to stroll back from Epcot to our Villa at night. The music, the water, the breeze, the smells... I don't know if I ever want to stay anywhere else!

We will probably look for a resale contract in the next few months. Wish me luck!

In 2006, DW and I booked a small trip just to an all-stars, and it was fine, but it just didn't feel like "home". To the point where we went to Epcot, and strolled by the BC and had dinner at Big River just to feel "at home".

Then in 2008, we did a split stay where we stayed at AKV for 2 days and don't get me wrong, BEAUTIFUL resort! But it wasn't our beloved BCV... ( not to mention it's biggest drawback is that it's so far from everything! )

I have been absent from this area of the board for a few weeks because I am over at the Disney Land board trying to read everything possible about The World of Color. My family and I will be leaving in one more day to go to Disney Land for 8 days ---- :banana: This will be our third year doing both parks in a single year --- my DH says it's the last time because I am killing his budget.

I am not worried -- I have a whole year to wear him down :rotfl:

I haven't posted here yet, but we are BCV owners/lovers. We'll be arriving there on July 1st for 4 nights for the first 4th of July holiday spent at WDW with family and friends. DGC (3 of them) love SAB, but until this time, we've only stayed there with them in a very rainy May and a very cold November. This will be their first time in what I imagine will be very hot weather! Even our 4 year old DGD at the time, loved the tall pirate slide in the chill...so this should be GREAT!

I figured it was time that I joined this group. We are currently refinancing a property and once the loan comes through I plan to pick up a couple resale contracts, and one will be at the BCV. I already have the contract picked out and I'm just praying that it doesn't get snatched up before we get loan approval. Though I have stayed at the hotel before the Villas were built, I am looking forward to staying there for F&W in 2001!:woohoo:

Teena thanks for the pin! It was the talk of my party when they saw the mysterious envelope i was getting! I actually met you last Friday, I was wearing black Phillies shirt. I didn't realize we were both from PA. I didn't say anything about knowing you from the disboards cause I didn't want to put you on the spot. I do want to say you embody what the Beach Club is all about ! I don't think during my entire stay I ever saw you not talking or welcoming someone home. Here's hoping you have a long tenure at my favorite resort. I know I enjoyed and appreciated my conversations with you during my trip home.

Our first trip home to BCV is 2 weeks away! Due to our flight changes, I had to drop our last night and try to add a night at the beginning of our stay. After a week on the waitlist, I was amazed that our studio request for the first night came through yesterday! I'm so excited!!:banana:

I found this thread a few days ago and now I feel like I can post here because I just booked our first BCV stay for May 2011. It is the one resort my DH really wanted to check out, SAB is the true motivation. ;) All I can say is that the pictures in this thread are amazing and I can't believe in 7 months we will get to see everything up close. We own at BLT and have not stayed there yet. I wonder if we will ever get there especially if DH and I like BCV as much as I think we both will. :goodvibes

You sound exactly like our family. We don't own at BCV (do plan on adding on here someday) but are staying there in May as well. We stayed in the BC last December and loved everything about the area that we decided to stay at BCV for our next trip. We will be there from 5/5-5/14 staying in a studio and our whole family is so excited about it. I love all of the pictures it is getting me more and more excited for the trip...we can't wait to go :goodvibes

We booked 2 nights at 11 months for our group of 2 families (that was all we could do with the points we had) and were able to add on another night at 7 months when our window opened this week! Looking forward to being there in August!!!
Good vibes to all who are staying there and Congrats to the new owners!

You'll forgive me as you read on :rolleyes1, but I'm an OKW/SSR kinda girl. We love to resort hop, and decided to try all of the DVCs. I make the reservations, and I had put off staying at BCV because I really didn't think I would like staying there. For some reason, it just didn't appeal to me. I didn't care for the decor in pictures, SAB wasn't a huge draw, and being close to Epcot didn't mean much to me. I'd much rather be by DTD.

So last spring break, I BROKE DOWN :rolleyes: and booked at BCV (BLT is the only resort on property we have left). Let me tell you...I plan to call it home some day.

1) We LOVED SAB, much to my surprise.
2) The grounds are beautiful. I have some absolutely amazing pics.
3) DD and I walked to the entrance of Epcot and watched the fireworks one evening. Love those special moments that mean so much. :hug:
4) The resort felt "warm" to me. I generally don't care as much for the hotel style resorts, but our room overlooked the quiet pool and it was just amazing. I loved sitting on our balcony and watching people at the pool, and watching Magical Express drop people off and pick people up. I have a LOVE/HATE relationship with ME (love it when it drops me off, and hate it when it picks me up), but watching the excitement of people being dropped off was a lot of fun. :goodvibes

Just wanted to post what a beautiful resort this is, and thank you for sharing your home. We're currently booked in a 2-BR for 10 days this summer, and I can't wait. I do have to admit...I'm starting to have OKW withdrawals! If my OKW contracts pass ROFR popcorn::, I'm going to try and book there over Christmas before the 7 month window opens up! :santa:

We will be there Sunday! We are staying at a value for the first time just for the overnite when we arrive.

I also own at OKW and loved it there. But we also now love the easy access to Epcot which is where we dine. The studios are so close and the pool is the best.

We have gotten BCV at F&W two years in a row. Never had a problem getting a room.

Our contract closed at the end of February and the points appeared in our account earlier this month. I was able to make my reservation for F&W well before the 7 month mark (4 more days) and get a 1 BR. We stayed at the hotel 10 years ago (when they were building the Villas) and it was wonderful, I'm looking so forward to returning there now that I can call it home!

We finally decided to buy into DVC last summer. we knew we only wanted BCV because of F&W and location. We had only stayed there once in 07, but loved it!!!

So we bought re-sale and used some banked points to stay at Kidani last Nov. No way were we getting into BVC with two months notice.

Anyway, this October will be our first trip "home". We are doing a split stay with WLV, but the end of the trip is 5 nights in a 1 bedroom at BCV. So excited.

Just curious, what kind of room request to make? I don't want to be on the first floor with a patio, I would like a room facing Epcot , but the pool looks fine as well.

Should I just request higher floor and see what we get?

My request is usually "higher floor with a full balcony." I don't mind the first floor too much, but I HATE the little balconies.

Which rooms have little balconies? We have a 1 br reserved for Oct. I don't mind a ground floor room but would like a large area to sit with a glass of wine in the evenings when we are in the room cooking dinner.

I think it's mainly the rooms facing the quiet pool. Those balconies have room for just the two chairs and the table and are kind of on top of each other. I jump like a little kid when I get the balconies that stretch from the bedroom to the living room. :rotfl: I've only seen those in the back though.

I'm so homesick for the Beach Club! We bought the year they were building and have been twice a year since. We're not going this year. It's a combination of my dad having two knee and two hip replacements and saving our points so my fiance and I can go to Hawaii on our honeymoon next year.

We'll be there in two weeks when the shuttle Endeaver launches on 4/19. I have never seen a shuttle launch live, so I was wondering if you can see it from BCV? Or---is there a better place anywhere on WDW property where we should be?

I've seen a shuttle launch from WDW and one from down by the Indian River. If a main purpose of the trip is to experience one of the last launches then head over towards the Cape. What you will see from WDW is interesting in that there is a bright light and big vapor trail but it's no comparison, IMO, to being close enough to feel the shuttle launch. It will no doubt be crazy though.

You should be able to see it from most anywhere on WDW property. The first one I saw was out in front of the Swan.

The purpose of the trip has nothing to do with the shuttle launch. We just got lucky that there will hopefully be a launch while there. We won't have a car, so heading over to the Cape is not an option for us. I agree that it will probably be crazy there, too. I believe it's an evening launch (around dusk), so we should be able to see the light from the rockets, I guess. Hopefully, we will be able to see it, but if we don't, disappointing, but not a problem.

We have rented points and are staying at BCV for the first time. I plan to ask for an upper floor. I am confused as to how check-in works. When we pull in, are there bell hops to help with luggage and take us up to our room?? We have a one year old and lots of stuff...so it would be nice to have someone help us up to our room.

Yes, when you check-in there will be bell hops to help you to your room (if it is ready) otherwise they can store your stuff for you until it is ready.

You should pull up to the Beach Club resort and they will ask for your name and someone will help you....you check at in at the lobby of the resort, just as you would do if you were staying at the Beach Club part and not the villas.

Have a wonderful time.

Thanks for the reminder! It looks like I'm going to be calling to book one vacation (BCV) during another vacation (HHI-Thanksgiving). If you already booked Bobbi, it looks like we'll be there at different times. Rats! We need to meet again.

On our last trip, I just loved lying on a couch in the Solarium reading a book and watching the world go by. I got this great idea that I wanted a room in our house to be a replica of the Solarium, so I took this picture of the plaid I wanted, and another picture of how the Solarium looked from the couch-

We just returned from our first stay at BCV, BWV is my home resort. I love the BW, but we all LOVED BC. Loved SAB, loved loved the dedicated 2 bdroom. I know that seems silly but my kids hate to be on the sleeper at BWV. The only thing that I prefer from BW is the proximity to DHS. While, I know you can walk we always seemed a bit tired to do so, and I felt like the boat took forever.
my husband missed the bakery lol. but overall I would say our fav resort. I didnt notice any resort specific merchandise in the Marketplace however.

I'm curious.....how many layouts are there for 2 bedrooms? I've seen videos of 2 different dedicated units and in each the second bedroom connected in a different spot. One connected by the entry door the other connected in the living room. Which is more typical? I prefer by the front door...can that be requested?

We are staying at BCV for the first time this summer after our 7 night Disney cruise! We stayed at BWV (which we loved as well!) last summer and when we went strolling on over to Beach Club the kids were just drooling over the pool area and the movie on the beach. I was drooling over the light and airy, sunrooms, hallways, etc. . .it seemed right out of a movie! When we go down and do parks, it just doesn't seem like we have time for any of the extras, so I am sooooo excited that this will just be a couple days and nights of hanging out at the resort and taking it in. The pictures are getting me even more excited!!!

So, for all of you BCV lovers and pros what else should we not miss since we just get to hang out and take it all in?? Remember, no detail is too small!!

Do not miss a late night treat at beaches and cream. If you are on the dinging plan this is considered a table restaurant, but you can request a table and just do dessert after a movie on the beach. It is first come first served no adr's but well worth the wait.

I'm so happy to have this thread! Wonderful pictures. We will be staying here for the first time in Oct. for F & W Festival. I never dreamed that we'd be able to snag anything at this resort. We have a 1BR and couldn't be more excited.

Thanks to all who contributed their beautiful photos! :goodvibes

We are headed to BCV for the first time from 1/12 - 1/19/2013! It is the end segment of a LONG (12/29 - 1/19) trip the Vero, AKL and BCV. We own at AKL but are excited to try BCV and my son cannot wait to be able to swim in Stormalong Bay - so, what do we need to know??

SOOO glad I found this thread! My wife and I bought into BCV last fall on our honeymoon as a wedding present to ourselves. We're heading back down at the end of July, but we're staying across the lake at BWV. Crossing our fingers that one of our waitlists goes through and we come home!

The waitlist came through and we got a studio for 12/26-12/29. :cool1: Now I need to do my homework.

We stayed on the hotel side several years ago, so my memory is sketchy at best. Even looking at the maps, I am having a hard time picturing the Epcot path in relation to the villas. Help me remember, please :angel:

Also, I usually ask for a 1st floor room, so what can you tell me about the 1st floor studios? Are the patios open (no railing)? Are there patios on every room? What about location in relation to the Epcot path, lobby, parking, pool, etc? I'm not overly concerned about view; location is more important to me.

If we don't get a 1st floor, what about the balconies on the upper rooms? I have seen mention of different balcony sizes. Are there elevators?

Thanks

This map may help you with the layout:

The 1st floor villas all have open patios. And the higher floor balconies can be anything from a small to an extra large.

This website also has all the floor plans. You'll see that the studios are mixed into all the wings on the 1st floor. There are 2 sets of elevators. One by the main BCV lobby and the other is located down the wing towards the parking lot right were it straightens out from the turn bringing it around the quiet pool.

that does help, thanks.

For whatever reason, I was thinking the walkway was along the canal. Now I have more of an idea where I want my room to be (in the small wing closest to the hotel) so I can be close to the walkway and the amenities in the hotel.

Our studio (one night only that stay) was first floor, last studio, farthest down the hall, facing the road. No, we didn't hear much noise, but we didn't go to bed until 1:30am :cool1: that patio was just a concrete slab with two chairs and a small table with some shrubs in front of the slab. I love my balcony, so if this had been a long visit, I would've been disappointed...but it was private, just zero view. We asked and got a top floor this June, love, love, loved it...still again, facing the road, but had tree tops. Was 90 degrees next to a 2 bedroom patio, but they never used it while we were there...and it was the perfect balcony to watch the fireworks (the 2 bedroom balcony :confused3). They did pop out one morning for an argument. :blush:

We'll be arriving for our first visit to BCV on Friday(9/28). FIVE DAYS! Whoop!

We didn't make any requests, but I'm hopeful that we'll be very happy(or at least content) with whatever we get. Since we're going for F & W Festival, the location is what really mattered. :thumbsup2

We are also on the 5th floor right now. Checked in early this morning and were lucky enough to get our room by 9:30AM.

Check in staff was lovely and room is in great condition. Only complaint is that our TV's are not receiving all the stations and no one has come up to fix the issue yet. Oh well, I'm at Disney. How much better can it get than that? :goodvibes

We bought there a couple years ago and have since had to cancel two F&W trips, so we are REALLY hoping that the third time is a charm for next year!

We don't take too many photos anymore, but if you let me know what type of photos you'd like, I'll work on taking a few.

Hope it works out for you next year.

Rooms are nice, my view is of EPCOT/woods. Stayed at BLT and they are newer, but that is to be expected. Too me they are all nice, occasional problem but you get that anywheres. Hi candlelady...did you make the fireworks last night? We could see most from our room...

We just received a magical sprinkling of pixie dust. I don't know why, but this was just delivered to our room with a card welcoming us home from the Beach Club staff.
So special, I'm not sure I can actually bring myself to eat it.
God, I love this place. pixiedust:

I just had a waitlist come through so my first 2 nights oct 29-oct 31 I'll be at bcv. then I'll have 3 nights at bwv. Was all 5 at bwv but I wanted to do the deluxe dining plan for 2 nights. Anyway I've never stayed at bcv before. This will be a solo trip. Stayed 1 night at yacht club a few years ago with my boyfriend. I know about the pool, looking forward to that. And i'm familiar with the general area, having stayed at bwv many times.

Any advice on any room requests? I'm sure it's been discussed many times but I haven't read the whole thread. Do all studios have a full balcony? I know at the hotel part of bc many do not. That's really all I want. I know bcv isn't big and doesn't have great views. So as long as I have a balcony, I don't really care about much else.
