We were in Barn Suite 2. Another friend had recommended the place. I can't remember if they were in 1 or 4. Such a fabulous place!

Hi MM,
If it were me, (and a great discount was available) I would change to a Standard CL room, especially at Yacht Club. It is so convenient to be able to roll out of bed, pop on some clothes and grab a yummy breakfast. It is such a time saver!
(And the other lounge offerings are nice, too.)
You would still have a full balcony, another thing that is very nice at Yacht Club.

A garden view would be very pretty, no doubt about that. But, for me, the thing about the Epcot resorts is that you have a fabulous view every time you walk outside. I just love Crescent Lake.

Our room wasnt ready which is ok altho I was shocked since we have done online check in for CL and our rooms at Poly, GF and CR CL are always ready even in the middle of JUNE!

So we get taken up to floor 5 where they check us in and they find us a room that is ready. On the way to look at the room before going to the park we notice that the hall ways look very dingy and dirty! Carpets are very worn and stained and plenty of dishes outside of the rooms ( I guess set out for housekeeping)

Get into our room which is allllllll the way in the back but Im ok with that just not use to being so far the lounge but Im willing to make the best of it until we open our door.

Room isnt very clean, furniture is very very worn and chipped!

DH asked for a balcony its his thing he will sit on it every evening returning from the park and will have his coffee there every morning. He LOVES it!

Our balcony was COVERED in cob webs and spiders! I didnt notice first but DHs face got plastered in cob webs trying to walk out onto the balcony!

We stopped at CL desk explained sitauation and went to the park. DH asked them to pls get rid of spiders and webs and the trash that was on the balcony, which they said they would and apologized many times.

We return that night at 11 pm. He goes to sit outside. ITS NEVER BEEN CLEANED and the spiders are still everywhere including webs! He calls for a manager, who argues and argues. Then asks when we are leaving? Sends housekeeping to change bedding?

Dh went to sleep very upset and insisted on leaving the moment we woke up the next morning. So dissapointed, after staying CL at Poly, GF, and CR this wasnt what we were expecting. I had hoped to make BC a new home since we love the EP area but Dh says he will never stay there again! :0(
I'm sorry to hear that you had so many issues at BC that you had to leave. Did you move to another resort? If so, I hope it was a better experience for you.

This is spot-on. I'd definitely take a standard view CL if the discount was sufficient though. (Our SV-CL, albeit at the BC, last year included a view of the fireworks from the bed.) They are beautiful resorts, both.

Mousemommy and kelleigh, glad you enjoyed the photos! Now I need to get into our BC room fast and take some photos there because every time I look at those YC photos, I think about how much I love those windows!

We are currently booked in a regular GV room, but still considering upgrading to CL, but on the Disney website, only standard view CL rooms are showing. I really don't want to give up a GV for a roof or parking lot view...

Thoughts???
Hi Mousemommy! We've only stayed GV at YC, but I can tell you that at BC, I'd switch from GV to SV CL in a minute! In fact, I tried to do that a little while ago with our upcoming reservation, but it was too late. All the BC CL rooms are gone for our dates. Boo! But that's my own fault - I always book low initially and then end up upgrading my reservation. Just did it with CR (but kept the view.)

Thanks guys!!! I actually went ahead and upgraded to SV CL, and was able to apply the 40% discount!!!

Now, I've got a YC CL, POLY CL split stay...sounds like pure

Also, if you get the right placement, that back entrance by the laundry room is a much shorter walk than going back to the lobby. There is also an elevator by this entrance just in case you are on the third or fourth floor.
Now this is news I can use! Thanks.

This is a pet peeve of mine- I find that extremely disgusting. Not that you are blaming them, but maybe it's not housekeeping's fault...even my kids know to completely unfold a napkin and cover up the tray, then give housekeeping a call. Not too long ago I stayed at a hotel where the restaurant actually requested to be called when we were through so they could clear the table- and they did. That was awesome.

Thank you so much for the photos, so nice of you to post all that!! Now I can let them know exactly what I want so I don't get the "laundry room view".
(And what does that little sign there by the door say?).

Now that we have a SV CL room at YC, I am wondering about an ideal location...close to lobby and pool?? Suggestions on wording, or will that suffice?

Wow - do you think we were upgraded without knowing it? I'm certainly no expert regarding YC view categories - I just booked YC GV and we received the room in the photos. So I should qualify the "YC GV" on the photos if that's actually one of the lagoon/pool views. (But in any case, we love that room - yay!)

The little sign by the door says, "Room Key Access 11pm - 7am!"

This was my 'garden' view last year @ the YC, taken from the balcony. I suspect I may have been upgraded, but no one said anything. In any event I was thrilled! I did online check in and made no requests.
If I looked down I could see the wedding gazebo, btw.

We had the same view and were told at check in we were given a "nice" water view. We had also booked and paid for GV, but on my receipt it said water/lagoon view
