Well I finally completed the resort survey they sent us about 3 weeks ago.

I did address most importantly the horrible wi fi issues we had when we were there.

Also addressed some cast member issues, but it was not a BC castmember rather one at the MK.

I also wrote about the bounceback offer changing the date we left and we didnt know that so we didnt book another trip.

Just wondering other than the survey, has anyone specifically wrote to guest relations about other issues not related to the BC resort questions in the survey?

Do they actually read the survey comments that are not specifically about the BC?

Hi all.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I'm back from babymooning to lurk the thread. Planning a Fall 2013 visit with BC CL in mind.

Hi, everyone!!

I know I've been absent from the thread since I came back from my trip, but the holidays (and work!) have been very busy for us. I simply don't have time to do a full-on trip report, but I did upload a bunch of my pictures of Club Level offerings to my flickr account for everyone to peruse.

http://flic.kr/s/aHsjDo69vP

You'll also find a few stray shots of things other than appetizers and snacks in there.

I did do a semi-trip report with photos for my health and fitness blog if you're interested.

Surviving Disneyworld Part I

Surviving Disneyworld Part II

Surviving Disneyworld Part III

Those three posts focus a bit more on how I managed to survive a trip to the World while staying on Weight Watchers and getting in my exercise , but you'll find plenty of info about our experiences that doesn't involve food (LOL) as well as pictures of fun stuff.

I will probably not be able to get back to this wonderful thread for a while because life is just SO busy right now, but I can tell you with a certainty that we WILL go back to the Yacht Club, and we'll definitely do Club Level again. I don't know when, but it's going to happen!!

I can't stress enough how awesome our trip was, and I have the great folks here to thank for it in great part, because the knowledge I gained here was invaluable! Thank you all SO much for the great things you do on this thread, and especially to Dee for her awesome work at keeping things organized.

Happy holidays to all! I'll be back around when I can!!

Wow!!! Thank you for sharing your awesome photos! Really great, detailed pictures of the club level offerings!!! You know I will find a way to use them.

So helpful, since lots of people have been trying to figure out if they want to stay club level or not.

So glad to hear you will be back, when you can, to the Yacht Club. Make sure you come in and check in on us once and a while!!!

It just feels like if I'm paying deluxe rates that the main pool/bar area being closed is not the best value for the $.

I've stayed at the BC standard CL room a couple years ago. Although, CL is always nice I was not entirely sold on the BC CL but I want to try and keep the cost the same as my current reservation to make things simplier. So, if I book BC CL room with lagoon view, will this room have a full balcony (I will add that a balcony is important to me. I like to spend as much time on it while in the room). I might also be interested in a lagoon view first floor with a patio. Are these rooms hard to get and are many blocked by bushes, etc.?

We will be in Disney beginning January 17th, so not much time to make a decision. I called this morning and there are rooms available right now.


Any information is appreciated
Let us know if you have made the switch!

As long as the room is well maintained we can be happy and there will be plenty to do at the resort during the day if we pop back from the parks for a mid day break from crowds and heat. Our son still doesn't know where we will stay so this will be a huge surprise for him too!!
for CL! I'll add that to your listing.

And we need to make sure that NM gets the commission for all the CL bookings coming up. I think that is how she is planning on paying for the next BC CL stay!

I am sort of hoping for a special on the 5/26 Dream sailing. If we get it we will split our vacation to 4 nights cruise and 4 nights BCR. Won't know until about 60 day out from the cruise, as thats when they typically release those rates.
Either way, we are super excited to stay at the BC!!

I booked just a few ADRs yesterday as we have been so many times that now we just do a few sit down meals. They are so time consuming! We have BOG dinner, Ohana dinner, CMC breakfast, 50sPTC dinner. CMC and BOG are new to us. May throw in a meal or two in Epcot, but we like several of the counter service options there, so maybe not.


I think you'll be very happy with your stay at the BC.

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



I love, love, love the convenience of the World Showcase CS restaurants and Sunshine Seasons. Quite often, my family will do "take out" from Japan, or Morocco or France (great sandwiches) or Sunshine Seasons and take it back to the resort. The only thing we have learned is that they don't have bags equiped to carry the goodies, so we either bring our own, or when we take out from SS, we have asked for a merchandise bag from the very small Soarin' gift shop.

I'm bumping up your question- I provided some of the info you were asking about in a separate thread, but I don't have any experience with the first floor rooms. Anyone able to help here- especially if you have stayed in a first floor WV room?


Here's a picture of the back of the Beach Club, taken from the water- hopefully this will give you an idea of the growth between the rooms and the water.

We have had first floor rooms three times, all as free upgrades. Two of them faced the lagoon. There weren't any bushes blocking the view. It is a very nice view from the room. The disadvantage to the first floor rooms facing the lagoon is that everyone walking by can see you sitting there. I think the balconies are much more private.

Which room type?

Hi all!
We are trying out the Beach Club, club level for our next trip. Since we have never stayed there I need help with a room type. We are doing club level and want to be on the same floor as the lounge (close to it if possible) with a full balcony and a nice view. I would trade a full balcony for a better view-what do you think about that? Can you see Epcot from any of the rooms? Any advice on what room type to book would be great! Thanks!

Thank you so much for your response! One more question, if you don't mind? Someone asked several pages ago about whether the door to the patio locks when you go out, or if it is possible for you to lock it from the outside and exit the room that way.

What was your experience with that?

Thanks, again!

Thanks Dee!

I was pretty active on this thread before kid 3.0 and now I feel like I'm totally out of the loop! Time to get reading and planning during the wee hour feedings!

But first I have to go read up on your Disney chaperoning trip! I remember reading about the possibility and thinking it could be interesting so I can't wait to read the reality.
