Chance of getting full balcony at BC
Nervous about request - I put in for a patio/full balcony so first or second floor at BC. But it looks like about a 50/50 chance since the upper floors have the standing balconies (and why would they even do this in first place). Hoping I can get it - we are going Feb 20-27 or that they can switch us to YC which has all full balconies if we have to. Anyone experience success/failure at this before?

We are DVC members, Beach Club is our home resort. We always request the full balconies,and we get one maybe 40% of the time. Otherwise it's a couple standing balconies. It's tough, seeming requests are only "requests" and nothing guaranteed. It to bad because its something we really enjoy. My suggestion to you is not to expect a full and than be thrilled if you get it that way your not disappointed either way.Have a great vacation.

Since having a balcony was my first pref. that's the only thing I put in my request, and got one.

Why did they do the Juliette's? They should all be full balconies for the price. I love sitting out on balcony, and really look forward to it. Maybe go with YC to guarantee it.

Good luck. I hope you didn't jinx yourself by putting in the request..

You can always ask if another room is available if what you are assigned doesn't have a full balcony or isn't first floor with a patio. Sometimes a room that will accommodate your requests will be available later in the day if you're willing to wait. With that said, if a balcony is a priority, you might want to think about switching to the YC now. Good luck.

Our last 2 rooms have had standing balconies. Once we were able to switch to YC and once we had to suck it up and keep the Juliette room. Now I just book elsewhere.

Since it's not a risk I'm willing to take, I stay @ the YC if I'm staying in the Epcot area.

We really want a balcony so the first time we stayed at BCV and the next trip we stayed at YC so we would also be guaranteed a balcony. I don't know if you have kids but our 9 year old DD actually preferred YC over the BC side, so far it was her favorite resort of all the ones we've tried.
