Special Request for Beach Club
 
I am staying with my family of 5 at the BC 1/2-1/10/13. I know there is a good amount of balconies that are small and we would like the larger one. We booked online using the Disney website and there were no special remarks/instructions to enter anything. Do I call Disney or do I wait till I get to the resort? :confused3 Thank you!

Call and have it noted on your ressie as a request.

Definitely call today and get those requests added to your reservation. The castmember can type two items so you could say something like "full balcony and a daybed". That's usually what I request for our party of 5. :thumbsup2 When you arrive at the resort ask at check-in if they were able to grant your requests. If not then you can ask again to see if it's possible to be moved. That might result in waiting quite a bit longer for a room, but if it's important to you then I think it's worth the wait. If they absolutely have nothing with a full balcony you can even ask to be switched the next morning, we've done that before. Have a great trip! :)

Totally agree with above poster, call today and add request to your reservation. We booked YC, as there are more full size balconies and patios at YC vs BC. We asked for 1st floor, close to lobby and daybed. We got a room with 2/3 requests met, 1st floor and daybed. Our room was far from the lobby, but we were ok with with it. Hopefully you can get your requests met and have a great trip!

Definitely call and have it listed then request it again at checkin.

We had requested a day bed and full balcony. We got the daybed only at check in. I requested to be moved to a room with a daybed and full balcony after I found out. The CM was really nice and patient. He even sent up signed cards for my kids for the delay, which was totally not necessary or requested.

ITA that you should call!!

But also remember that it is a popular request and there are limited rooms with full balconies. If a full balcony is an absolute MUST for an enjoyable vacation, consider a hotel where this is a guarantee.

Beach Club is a a very cheerful place and such a short walk to Epcot. You might enjoy it even without a balcony. :)

All the rooms have balconies but some are really small. It is almost a must but since we have 3 small children (3, 2, <1). They sleep, we can go out on the balcony and chat (have a drink :cool2:). We are set on the BC and I will live without a full balcony but it will definitely make our stay more enjoyable.

The advice everyone has given you is excellent. Call the Disney reservations line now to add a request for a full balcony to your reservation. Call again 10 days to a week before your trip.

Do not do the online checkin. Wait until you get to the resort to see what room you have been assigned and if it does not have a full balcony, ask if there is a room available that does.

I would like to invite you over to the Beach & Yacht Club FAQ thread if you haven't checked it out yet. You will find great information, lots of pictures, friendly chatter and hopefully answers to any questions you may have.

You can click on the link in my signature to get there.
