Jersey Week is the week of Nov 4.

I can't figure out why Mods and Deluxes are fully booked the week of Nov. 12th.

YC vs BC: is one more "worn" than the other?

Here's a question for all you Beach & Yacht Club experts--I will appreciate any advice you all have!

I have a trip planned for the BC in February. There's a new thread out there about the worn out and dirty rooms at the BC: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3003368

I'm not too concerned about the mousekeeping--that's a hit & miss problem anywhere--but I'm concerned about how "worn" the rooms and halls will look. We don't make it to Disney every year, so we've saved and planned a lot for this trip. We will be disappointed in a room that doesn't feel like a deluxe.

For those that have stayed at either the BC or YC (or both!) in the past year, do you think one is in better shape than the other? In my place, would you switch your reservations to the YC or just keep them at the BC?

Eep! Thanks so much to the folks who keep this thread updated and full of freat info.

We are staying at Yacht Club - CL at the end of the month to celebrate the end of my mom's cancer treatments. We will be there 10/30-11/2 and I can't wait! We stayed at BC-CL last year and got hooked.

We've stayed at both BC and YC several times and NEVER had a problem with a dirty or shabby room in either resort. I saw and posted on the other thread about the dirty BC rooms but in honestly this wasn't our experience AT ALL.
I wouldn't worry about it in the slightest.

Does anyone know if a kindle will be delivered that way? I can't tell from looking at their website.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!
I have had CHI !! hair straighteners/irons ordered from Amazon and delivered to the GF and had no charge. The following year again ordered 2 ski-suits from Colorado to be delivered to the GF again no problem.

I am about to do a LOT of Christmas shopping online from US stores and get it delivered to the YC next week. So will report back on any problems/charges. I have asked about charges if it is delivered by someone other than USPS but had no reply.

Our US friends might think we are crazy but with the exchange rate and
availability of certain things us Brits do a bit of shopping when we visit the US, BIG TIME.

As example our Nephew is after a Hollister hoodie for Christmas which in the UK is about $95, if we get it in Florida it will be about $40.

Everything that comes to the resort via United States Postal Service is delivered to the resort directly. Any packages/mail delivered by any other means goes to our shipping department which is located in the YC convention center. This is run by another company and they charge a handling/delivery charge. So, if it comes USPS, it comes to the front desk's back office and then one of the runners just delivers it to your room or you can pick it up when you check in at the front desk.

When I purchase stuff from Amazon it usually comes by USPS ... our mailman delivers it.

Recently back from our bc stay and I just wanted to say that this resort and the staff are wonderful. We couldn't be happier. This was our first time staying here and it was lovely. I wish I would have experienced hurricane hannahs but I will next time. All the negative reviews had me worried before I left but I'm soooooo happy that I didn't get to experience any of that. The rooms were very clean and comfy, the pool was so much fun not to mention the wonderful lifeguards, beaches and cream is a must for every trip, and the staff wore their smile on their sleeves, the grounds were so well maintained. Really a wonderful family resort. Cant wait to go back!

Try running it but with a starting date of the 13th. The 12th is the observed holiday. I bet a lot of folks will be taking a longer weekend.

We arrived around 12:30 today. Room was ready, everything is perfect. BCV with a quiet pool view. Couldn't be happier! Spent the day settling in and hanging around SAB. Finished the day off with a walk around the lagoon and boardwalk - and a stop at Beaches and Cream, of course. Sat under an umbrella and watched it rain for a bit before turning into a gorgeous sunset.

Happy, happy. ;:D

Yeah, I tried that too. I put in 13-16 (Tues - Thurs) and everything was still fully booked except for a couple of Values (All Star Sports and something else).

Very odd.

Well, I guess the two of us will have to just really spread out in a 2 bedroom villa. Hate to waste the money when it's not necessary but there doesn't seem to be a choice.

There is nothing available in ANY Deluxe or Moderate that week! Any! Is that possible? It's not Thanksgiving week, it's supposed to be a fairly slow week according to the crowd calendar.

It just doesn't seem possible that every room in every Deluxe and Moderate is full that week. And we're only staying Mon thru Thurs night so there's not even a weekend night in there.

I'm just flabbergasted. Is there a convention going on?

Can anyone check the site for me and see if I'm crazy?
Have you considered renting points from a DVC member? If you go on the DVC Rent thread, there are lots of points for sale. Some that expire soon go for lower prices too. I just looked online and as of 10:54 today, there were 1 bedroom villas at both AKL and SSR. DVC has different inventory than the cash rooms, from what I understand.
