We stayed water view at the YC last summer, and had a great view of the fireworks from our balcony! We were in room 2009 which is wayyyy at the end of the resort near the bridge to the Boardwalk. Loved it, since we went over to the Boardwalk often at night. Also, it was a corner room with lots of windows.
I loved the Yacht Club. A little quieter than the Beach Club, but not stuffy at all. Very relaxing!

Yes it was! The first room we were assigned to didn't have a day bed so we had to switch, but I think they made it up to us!!!

I was on the Disneyparks site last night playing around with dates/resorts and was shocked to see that BC had NO standard or Garden view rooms available for our dates??? we have never had trouble getting one in the past.

Is there something going on end of May through beg. of June at BC???

Let me know what you decide MM. I am booked BC GV in June b/c there is NO YC availability at all that week unless it is club level or pool view. I keep getting tempted to upgrade to get over to YC which is my personal preference. But I hate to pay so much for a pool view so let me know what you find out - ie are views ALL good, etc...Thanks! Melissa

Hi Scottmel

It's a tough decision. I normally wouldn't pay for a view, but I too prefer the YC decor more and we'd also get the full balcony....but it's $550 more for the 10 nights...

We just walked down that hall to the stairs and walked out the back way to everything Epcot was so close. Mousekeeping was excellent. Towel animals galore. We had a stingray in the bathtub one day that DH put on the sofa and the next day there was an Eeyore next to it. She had also taken my EEyore and had it cuddle with her Eeyore. So cute!

We ate lunch at Food and Wine Wed. and Thur. No lines at all . It was fantastic. In fact DHS was also empty those days. On Thur. we had our own private drawing class because no one else was there. on Friday morning we walked onto RNR with literally no wait and got the front car. The coaster only filled about half the car

The weekend was mobbed everywhere. Sat in Epcot was crazy. DHS and MK were also very busy. Sunday was busy but very manageable.

We ate at Beaches and Cream . Food was just OK but service and atmosphere was awesome. Best service we had was there and at Bluezoo. That was incredible. We also ate at Via Naploi which is one of our favorites but service was ok. Our waiter refused to acknowledge my existence and only talked to DH even when I tried to address. him. It was very strange the lengths he took to ignore my existence. We had my B day meal at California Grill . The food was awesome but our waitress was not. It as clear she did not want to be at work. She was very aloof and distant. She never acknowledged my B day. I did not want anything for free it was just weird that the check in lady acknowledged it but the waitress did not. She just did not really give anything to the service which was disappointing.

The trip was awesome. Great weather. No rain . I recommend running on the Boardwalk in the early a.m It was so relaxing and pretty. I talked with teena which was awesome. The BC workers were very helpful and amazing.

we got lots of pictures taken . Can' t wait to see them
I love BC
Happy Belated birthday Happy to hear that the vacation went so well , Just love it when things go the way you expect .
So you enjoyed the drawing class , was that a Disney Institute thing or part of the backstage expererinces? Sounds like a lot of fun .
My daughter is a big fan of Eeyore and now My grand daughter is into Winnie the Pooh and very partial to Eeyore so much so that when I was at the Beach Club the last summer I had to pick up a new one because she had lost her original one all better now . Oh well .
Say hi to your hubby for me , hope they settle this hockey lock out soon .

A picture of the view from our room at the YC in 2011 - room 2009. We could see the fireworks clearly over the bridge.

Great view!!! Would it be a reasonable request to ask for "a view of IllumiNations"???

And I promise to contribute photos!!! If Dee determines I'm eligible for the BOG list with a non-BC/YC stay, it's January 26-February 1.
Of course!!! We know a large piece of your heart is at the BC/YC.

We decided to go with the Beach Club this time just to switch things up a little and try something new.

Doing the happy dance!


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

The Disney art class is at Hollywood Studios and is free to everyone. Here is a good link to check it out. My family loves it!

I'm no expert, but it seemed to me that just about any water/boardwalk view at the YC would give you a view of them, just the way the building is situated toward Epcot. But I'm sure it couldn't hurt!
