There is no real current map. Check out page one of this thread for the links that are there of maps. They are old and really don't have the latest and greatest but they do in a pinch. If you can't find them on page one, here are a couple that might help. The first is a satellite view of the area. The second is from the DISZone but it is not accurate with respect to the type of room as it was done years ago before Disney came back and reclassified all the rooms as either standard view (parking lot or roof), garden view (not standard or water), and water view (pool or lake).

If it were me and I wanted a room "close to the lobby" and I had a garden view, I'd ask for a gazebo view. Either put that in your request or do not check in on-line and when you get there ask at the desk where your room is. If you can finagle a gazebo view you can't go wrong.

Have a great trip. That week you are going to be there is the best time to be at the World, especially with all the decorations. Love the train display in the lobby.

Thanks for the reply. Hopefully the kids games won't bother us, I'm more likely to be bothered by loud music. We'll just time our visits to SAB accordingly if need be.

Oh, but those laundry machines are so cute, just sitting there by the quiet pool whispering "use me, USE me, you won't have such a big pile back at the condo...."

I don't know what it is with us and vacation laundry. As long as there is a a machine within reach we feel compelled to start doing it. I'm thinking it is the thrill of being able to do ALL of the laundry at once, using multiple machines. Yes, THIS is what it must be.... but then you get down to the laundry room, dragging 100 pounds of dirty stinkin laundry with you and there is always only one machine open anyway. Someone else had the same "do ALL the laundry at once" fantasy and beat you to the open machines.

Usually the one that does the laundry on vacation gets to have the fancy drink while doing it. I'm talking full on, little paper umbrella and chunks of fruit fancy drink! Pretty soon you have spent $17.50 on the laundry and $14.95 on the fancy drink, or umm, two, because those dryers take so long!

Franc, I'm wondering if you will be able to resist the siren call to do laundry at a Disney resort hotel. I also think that if laundry mats back home had a liquor license they would really clean up, so to speak, with all the extra money rolling in (and the customers rolling out!).

I think my family needs to institute this policy! Love it.

Sandcastle Club ??

How busy is the Sandcastle Club usually? We plan on using it on 4/24/13 and I haven't had a chance to call and reserve a spot.

Our kids used the Cub's Den in July and we had reserved a spot ahead of time and it probably wasn't neccessary because they were the only kids there that night!!!

I will probably call to reserve this weekend if I get a chance but is it neccessary if I forget???

You should reserve ahead of time if you know that you want to use one of the kids clubs on a particular date. This will give the club a chance to staff appropriately. As in any childcare situation, they must maintain certain child to care provider ratios. If they only anticipate a handful of kids, they may not fully staff, and if they get a lot of drop in, they may need to turn kids away (if a spot a spot is not reserved.)

Shhhhhh, don't talk me into doing laundry at Disney!!!!

It's so sad but it's a real novelty for me doing laundry in the US because of the top loaders, we only have front loaders here in the UK (though I do remember my nan having a top loader in the 1970's).

I think I should print out your tip about the fancy drink and leave it around the house for the family to see. They wait on me hand and foot whilst I wash their skinky undies.

We spent 2 weeks at the BC from 19/10/12 and I have to say it was FANTASTIC!

The location is second to none as we had a 5 mins walk from our room to the international gateway @ Epcot and then a 20 minute stroll to Hollywood. The boardwalk was opposite so we could nip to the Boardwalk bakery if we didn't fancy what was on offer in the BC market place!

The room was lovely and clean and a perfect location as just outside our room was a door which took us to the quiet pool which all the time we were there there was never more than 4 kids in the pool of which 2 were ours! The hot tubs were great and I spent many relaxing late afternoons in here!

This pool was also next to the Laundry room so we could pop the laundry in and relax by the pool - perfect!

The Disney transport was excellent - the longest we waited was 10 mins and that was when we had just missed a bus to our chosen park so had to wait for the next one. I would say the longest journey was the return from Downtown as this stops at all the Epcot resort busses but it was no big deal.

We return to Disney for 2 weeks the same time next year and have booked to stay at Old Key West. We're coming in a group of 12 but if it was just our family we would be changing our booking so we could go back to the beach club - ah well there's always 2014!!
Glad you enjoyed it, we were there from the UK from 18th October so I bet our paths crossed. We had a room that overlooked the quiet pool which was an excellent location.

Just sharing my excitement!

We will be at the BC in 3 weeks. Teena, you've probably answered for someone else, but do expect to work Dec. 2-3, or will you be on your cruise? I know I've missed many pages of this thread-sorry if you've posted this info already!

I return from my cruise on the 1st (Saturday) so I'll definitely be working on the 2nd (Sunday). As of today, they have me working Saturdays and Sundays but I'm not sure if that is going to be permanent or I'll be going back to Sundays and Mondays.
