Disney Beach Club - Which Rooms

Need some advice .... My wife, I and our two kids (girls aged 14 & 10) will be staying in Disneys Beach Club (standard room) this year from June 11th to June 25th. This will be the 'trip of a lifetime' for us as we have been building up to this for a couple of years now. The Beach Club reviews I have read have been positive. With regard to the accommodation I am interested in what people think with regard to:
1. Are the specific rooms better than others (nice views)?
2. Should I avoid specific rooms / areas?
2. Should I request a balcony (I understand not all standard rooms have a balcony)?
3. Can I request a specific room in advance?
4. Any other advise?

Note: Do not really mind if a good room is not close to reception area. Good room in nice location, clean & comfortable and with nice views.

Any advise is greatly appreciated.

I would request a room near the elevator if I was getting a standard room view because it gives you less of a chance at a room above the large flat roof. The nice thing about the rooms on that side is that it tends to be quiet over there, since the parking lot and bus stop are set back a ways. You can also request a balcony but probably have a 50% chance of getting one.

The Beach Club is great. You'll enjoy it no matter room you get.

We've never requested a balcony (probably stayed at BC a dozen times or more) but we have always had a room with a balcony. Just lucky I guess... Of course we're staying there in a couple of weeks so I probably just jinxed us.

We stayed club level and had a room right around the corner from the elevator. I found this very convenient for us. My MIL on the other hand had a lovely corner room that was quite large on the 4th floor (not club level) but it was quite a hike from the elevator to get down to the lobby/Marketplace, etc.

We did like having a full balcony. We made it as our only request and got it. But in the end we rarely had time to sit out there and enjoy it. So if you don't think you'll use it I wouldn't bother requesting if there is something else you want.

In general the less requests the better your chances of getting what you ask for. Or so "they" say.

Many thaks for the advice. We are so excited at going to the Beach Club. I think my wife and I are more excited than the kids (kids at heart!)
