BC vs. YC Club level

Hi,

We are toying around with the idea of a late August trip. I am also looking into staying CL at either of these two resorts. Who can give me some info? I am mostly looking for what specific foods/beverages are offered (I know that it is subject to change) and where the CL rooms are located. Of course, I am interested in any other information anyone may have. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the link. I was looking around the web, but was only coming up with general information. Some of the threads and sites I've looked at list, very specifically, what is served. They give an actual menu. I was looking for something like that. The pictures were quite helpful though.

Does anyone know where the rooms are for club level in these two resorts? What floor? Are they all the same view for each resort?

I have stayed CL at the Poly and the GF ( loved the GF) and they both give the option for different views. I don't recall seeing that for the BC/YC when I was going through the information.

That thread I posted is the BC/YC thread. You will definitely have a good chance of getting your questions answered if you post there. There is a member, ninjamom, who posts there often and is currently staying CL at BC. She has been posting updates daily and did go into some detail as to what was being served in the BC CL.

I have stayed at both and by far and aaway YC CL is the better. To be fair, I would only stay in a garden view room as the cost is around 11 more a night and I feel paying club level prices in a standard room to look at a roof top is nuts. So YC GV CL has 8 rooms vs. BC GV CL as 5. Now my problem with BC is the following - of these 5 rooms 4 connect. Of these 5 rooms one is handicapped accessible with no water pressure and sink in bathroom. I found the connecting rooms to be noisy. I like the YC CL staff better than BC CL staff. I love BC hotel and would stay here again just not club level. Food is average at both places but BC CL lounge is TIGHT and packed......YC seems more spacious and relaxed. My dd13 prefers YC over BC as do we. We really love the vibe at both hotels but I would not stay BC CL again. I was pretty disappointed with the room layout on the garden view end of things. Nice view though - volleyball court or SAB. Pretty. Love the view. And add to the fact that only if you stay BC GV CL are you promised a balcony - no where else in BC CL are you assured. you ARE assured at YC CL regardless the category. Rumor has it there is one room that shares a balcony but I don't know the details on that and it is NOT garden view. Gardenn view there is wedding gazebo or front walkway up the stairs

Very helpful post, scottmel. We've stayed both CL and non-CL at BC, but only non-CL at YC. Thinking of giving CL at YC a try someday and this is great info.

UGH This is so helpful yet so discouraging at the same time.

I had my heart set on YC until I read from Teena that there are 2 King Bed rooms in the YC GV CL category. I'll be traveling with my mom, and as I said in the other post, I love her but I don't want to sleep in a king bed with her. And I also don't want to be inconvenienced by having to sleep on and dodge a rollaway in the middle of a small room. I can request a queen bed room but at the end of the day if there are 7 families staying at the same time then obviously we'll get bumped to a king bed. I'm not going to spend all of this money and be stuck with an undesirable bedding situation.

And now that you just mentioned the handicapped accessible room, knowing my luck we'll get stuck with that one. (This is no joke, I have the worst luck in the world. I have a black cloud that follows me everywhere. If something can go wrong, it will!) I honestly think I'm going to spend the extra cash on a deluxe room just to guarantee that I'll have two beds and a sink outside of the room. LOL

About a month ago on the Yacht & Beach Club thread, a lot of people were asking if there is a menu list of the items avail on club level. So far, I have not seen anything like that posted for these resorts.

A recent guest who stayed at the Yacht Club took these pictures of some of the offerings in the lounge. Much more recent than the ones on the thread that I took over 2 years ago!

I believe the food offerings in both lounges are the same.

Sorry I can't quote as I'm on my iPhone, but to Scottmel I was talking about BC when I mentioned the handicapped room. When I heard about the king bed situation at YC I figured I would just change to BC CL GV but then I saw the handicapped room mention, and that was another downer. I know I'm too picky and anal, but I'd really like a room with the sink outside. When traveling with another person it really cuts down on time in the morning.

I might sound overly dramatic, but like I said, I really do have very bad luck! If the only way to guarantee a room with what I need is to book a deluxe, then ill gladly pay extra for it. Well, not too gladly. LOL

The lounge is that orange box right in front the elevator.

Disney revamped the standard view vs garden view categories two years ago so if you pay the extra cost for garden view then you won't be looking at the rooftop/entrance. Those are standard view. I have a chart for BC, let me go find it and i will brb.

Thank you!

(I don't see a PM, though. Do they take awhile to send on the boards or should they be instant? I don't get many sent to me here! LOL)
