thought I knew it all...

I just want to say that as my "2nd" post; I have found such great information on this thread. My family and I have been to Disney numerous times. We have stayed at Pop, off site, Poly, and Animal Kingdom Kidani. We have been on the Magic Eastern Caribbean. We are headed to AoA - a Finding Nemo suite in November for DS 5th birthday and are attending the Mickey Halloween Party and Party for the Senses. But January - our usual January Poly CL stay - I have changed to YC CL and I am beyond excited. Now, I like to think I know the ins and outs of most things Disney - but then I found the Boards and wow - I am finding out so much useful information!
I am blessed to be an AP holder, and have a wonderful friend who extends his CM room discount to us, giving us a great discount. That said - we are booked in a standard YC CL room and I am wondering if anyone has any experience with this type of room - is it a far walk from the lounge or have any really horrible views? Should I look to upgrade to a garden view?
We have always passed the BC and YC and commented how wonderful they look - and this thread has me convinced I have made the right choice in a hotel! Can't wait to hang out with the noodle family and meet Teena!

Welcome to our side of the world!!

You may want to consider upgrading (for a few dollars per night) to a garden view CL room. All the standard view CL rooms are a guaranteed view of either a parking lot or a roof. As far as the location, it can be anywhere on the fifth floor (far away from the lounge or real close). If you prefer close to the lounge, make sure you put "close to lounge requested" on your reservation. And if you prefer to be far away from the lounge, just add "far away from lounge requested" on your reservation.

The garden view CL rooms have views of something "green" (usually one of the courtyards or a wooded area).

I look forward to meeting you and the family!

We sat in a section with no,other seated tables, got balloons as well as some other goodies, our picture taken (we got a hard copy and one emailed to us) for the scrapbook they keep, and a certificate. Who knew??? I'll post a couple pictures tomorrow. just a fun start to the day

Oops! No, I have not mastered the art of Time Travel we will be staying Oct 13-20... Not 23-20! (we are a week into a massive 8 wk remodel and already I have lost my mind).

Not only will this be our first time at BC, but our first time CL. Since I also booked this trip for my cousin and her family. I just want them to love WDW as much as we do! And I just don't want a crappy view! I just have a knack for getting rooms that look at parking lots.

I have been wanting to switch to garden view from standard view because we had a not so great standard view last year, and was quite a hike to the lounge. I haven't been able to find much information about the garden view CL rooms. I have read that there aren't very many, and only a few have a daybed. I have also read several are handicap rooms and the bathrooms are different. I would love to switch to GV, but I'm hesitating because of these things. Since you are so knowledgable I was hoping you could put my mind at ease about it. I have a few questions I hope you can answer. Are the garden view rooms close to the lounge, are they as large as standard view rooms, and how likely/unlikely would it be to get a daybed? Any help you can provide would be soooo appreciated!

I have a standard club room booked but after reading this I'm changing to agarden view or may even do water view. Is water view cl a view of stormalong bay and is it worth it? Also, we will be checking out of dolphin to check in. If our room isn't ready, can we still use club for breakfast. Thanks.

My parents are flying down March 8th and we already have a condo off site with them (were not doing Disney with them) and then the 11th we drive down to Miami to hop on the Wonder for a 5 night cruise!

Beach Club has been my dream resort ever since we went to Cape May for breakfast last year. I'm bummed we won't be staying longer, but excited we will at least get to check it out for a few days.

Anyways, just wanted to say Hi and thank you for all the wonderful info I have gotten from this thread!! My girls are SO excited for SAB after seeing all the pictures!!


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

for your trip and the cruise.

This will be our first time at BC and we are really looking forward to it! Just a quick question- with the Fall Discount, we upgraded tp Club Level. Although I am happy with some of the perks, I worried that our view will stink. We had a Garden view before we "upgraded," but now are standard CL. Does anyone have any experience with this? Besides being a BC first timer, we are also CL first timers... So any hints/ tidbits would be appreciated!

27 days!!!!


I CAN time travel, so I correct your dates above, and I will add you to the Be Our Guest list.



I'll reply to your question about CL SV rooms in another post, but, SPOILER ALERT: I'm a fan
