I'll warm up your seat on the magical depress for the ride home.... unless you want to run like a bunny over to our room and hole up for a couple more days! I can totally explain that to my husband since we are in the business of adopting people on our Disney Trips!

Lol!! I depart at 10am... Oh well I thought I'd get to meet your crazy boys!!

Ok, thanks!!!! Now, one final question.....I am guessing that the garden view rooms outside of the gazebo are on the sides of it vs. the part of the u-shape that faces out towards the marina?? So, are the rooms at the bottom of the u actually water view and the sides of the u garden view???

I really hope that makes sense....and if I am correct, is it possible to see the water if you look out sideways from your balcony??.

Sorry for so many questions!!! Just trying to understand the location.

I saw on another thread on the resort boards that the proposed dates of the SAB slide closure are Jan 17-25, and I think pixarmom posted a link confirming those dates. Also, it has been reported that the Luna park pool at the Boardwalk will be down for refurbishment around Jan 28, so I am guessing the SAB slide will be operational before then.
Thank you! Wonder if the section of the pool where the slide dumps out will be closed as well? Looks like one section of the pool is usually closed in Jan??

When it says "slide closed" that means the section of the pool where the slides dumps out will be closed. If you go back to the part of our thread that covers Easter last year, there is great detail of how SAB is divided into three areas. The largest area I believe is the "slide" area which consists of where the slide dumps out, the volleyball area, etc. Then there is the lazy river section. The third section is the zero entry section closest to the YC.

But even still, I don't think the noise will be an issue, at least I don't think it is worth requesting. In my opinion, the noise level you encounter in a room is more a factor of who your neighbors are.

Forgot to add to this! If we stay non-CL at BC again, we will definitely request "full balcony" and "close to lobby." We've loved every single location of all our BC rooms over time - each has its own advantages. But when staying non-CL, we are HUGE fans of our second floor garden view room with a view of the courtyard outside the lobby. My husband thought it was lively, it was very convenient to SAB and BC Marketplace and it allowed us to visit Teena several times to and fro the pool! The feeling of just walking up the stairs to our room was wonderful - made BC feel even more cozy than usual. Just can't say enough about it.

As for the pool situation, you know we're following it closely! Jan. 16-15 for the jib slide at SAB and then January 28-March 1 for the Luna Park renovation. We hope the jib slide is complete by January 28 because we'll be at SAB on the 29th! I almost feel like I'm staying at BC, even though I went with the BWI compromise - BC Marketplace, movies on the beach, Beaches N' Cream and SAB! If really do love a BC room, but I'll just block that out for now!

Help YC experts! I'm a BC vet and have only stayed at YC once in that quiet pool view room - I know a YC expert will be on the way shortly to help out!

Sounds like a super smart move! I'll revise your dates on the list.

Being on the side of the U shape, you can stand on the balcony and looking left or right (depending on which side of the U you are on) you will see the lake. I would think that being at the bottom of the U where your view of the lake would be impeded by the gazebo you would provably still be charged a water view rate but having never stayed in one of those rooms I cannot definately say this is so. However, I still maintain that if you are in the YC and are getting a GV room, you should definately try for the gazebo view.

As far as the "secret entrance" goes, if you get a room that is close to the door, it is easier to go out the secret entrance to get to the lobby than to walk the winding halls. However, the best way to judge this is the first day you are there, check it out and you'll know for sure then.

Have a great trip.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

Just wanted to make sure everyone was aware of some new info and changes at the Disney parks for 2013:


Extra Magic Hours:

The evening extra magic hours for Disney resort guests will be shortened from 3 hours following park closing to 2 hours. The extra magic morning hour will still be an hour before park opening.

Extra Magic Hours offer a rare and unique opportunity to enjoy additional time in Walt Disney World parks—above and beyond the standard operating schedule—at no extra charge. This special perk is offered to Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels.

Each day, one of the 4 Walt Disney World theme parks opens one hour early or remains open up to 2 hours after regular closing time.

For more info:Extra Magic Hours


Limited Time Magic:

Now available and continuing through 2013, Limited Time Magic will surprise and delight Guests in fanciful and unexpected ways at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. New entertainment and imaginative events will pop up and then disappear—so be sure to take advantage of these opportunities while they last!

Please bookmark this page and check back often to learn about the latest experiences.

Limited Time Magic

Question about 5th floor at YC

Yesterday I was looking at the latest version of the Unofficial Guide while I was at the book store. I used to buy the book every year but I haven't bought one in a long time and I was surprised to see how it had changed. Anyway, I was reading the section about what are the good rooms to request at various resorts and the only recommendations for YC were on the 5th floor. I thought the whole 5th floor was CL. Am I wrong about that?
