I can't wait to tell our DDs!
So glad to hear you are coming back!

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

You are going to MORE than okay, especially since you are going "dark side"

Hope all the surprises work out for you. You are going to have a great trip.

I just read that the quiet pool is open 24 hours a day, so it seems like it might be a slight concern at midnight if people decide to enjoy the hot tub after a long day at the parks.
I've probably bored the others on this thread with my story before, but you're new here, so...

On the last night of our vacation in Jamaica in 2008, we were trying to get to sleep around 9 PM since we had an early flight in the morning. After we had all settled in, we heard VERY loud music coming from the courtyard below our balcony. It was a concert or video by singer Sean Kingston. I considered going down to the lobby to complain, but figured others were probably enjoying the unscheduled concert.

Sorry Music City Mama, I missed this. I thought it was a Swolphin question. I didn't see you were looking for information on the YC.

Yes, the door hits the toilet, just like at the BC. The rooms are exactly the same. Just look at the pictures on page one and you will see this.

Yes, the GV room with gazebo view can be close to the elevator. If I wanted to make a room request for both of these I would first put gazebo view then put close to elevator. The view of the garden area and the gazebo would be a higher priority for me than the elevator, but that is just me.

And yes, you can get a GV room that does allow you to look at the lake or the pool but you won't get the water view on a "straight on" basis. usually you have to stand on the balcony and look right or left.

Hope that helps.

Happy planning

snakes? OMG- please don't tell me that! I can deal with bugs, they are usually easy to remove, but if I see a snake in my room, I will DIE! DIE! I tell you! I can't deal with snakes in my room, I will need therapy!
Besides that- any rooms better in BC then others- we have a Garden view- thanks!

Just booked BC needs help with room

Hi all,

This is our first trip to WDW with our kids DS10, DD8 and just booked BC for 6/9 to 6/14. I need help in choosing room category or location. We don't really care for the balcony but would like a room near the lobby or SAB. Which category should we book? Right now I have garden view. Would appreciate any inputs.

Should have listened to the Wise One. In TT line and just heard for the sixth time, " Ladies and Gentlemen. Due to technical difficulties..."

Well you've come to the right place! I'm new, so I'm not the advice-giver for resort rooms, however, I have grown to love this board in a short time. Everyone here is friendly, knowledgable and will give you some GREAT information to find what suits you. Also, Page 1 of this thread has a plethora of information with pictures etc, that might help you decided what you want too......

I can tell you from personal experience that you're going to be more than OK!! We were on the 3-night Dream in August of 2011 - it was a short cruise just to determine whether we would be OK on a ship, not get claustrophobic, sea sick, etc. before we invested in the Wonder to Alaska for 2012. We did have a great time on the 3-night Dream, but now I entirely understand why cruise vets recommend against the short cruises. It fit our purposes perfectly, but now that we've done the 7-night (and to Alaska!) we wouldn't repeat a 3-night.

And having stayed at Coronado Springs several times, and BC/YC many, I can tell you that the WDW-only stay at BC or YC is a GREAT choice. I'd absolutely choose it over the 3-night Dream/CSR mix!

So, as I've been reading through I've seen a post about 'Limited Time Magic' in 2013 - has anyone seen any examples of what this is yet? Very curious!
We've been following limited time magic since they announced it in NYC a few months ago. We're planning trips to both WDW (in three weeks!) and DL (in August.) So we're interested to see what they will come up with each week. The website limitedtimemagic.com has some information, and Disney said they would update it every Friday with information regarding the next week. Last week through today, it's a dance party in MK. But so far, no updates for tomorrow or next week. And the running promo is the ear-hat-of-the-month, but the hats they "released" this month were already available last year. My brother's family is leaving WDW today after a few nights in a POR Royal Room. They were in MK yesterday, but didn't mention anything about noticing the promotion.

I think the garden view would be great for your family. Our now-favorite GV room is on the second floor just up the stairs and literally steps from the lobby. And very close to SAB! If you don't care about a full balcony, you could request close to lobby, and maybe 2nd floor, if you want to make it really easy to just skip down those stairs! (Although our kids say the BC elevators are the fastest in the world!)

Our 2nd floor garden view room:



From the balcony, and SAB is right past those trees:



You can see our balcony on the second floor, tucked in the corner. SAB was on my left when I took the photo.



We were right up these stairs from the lobby!

Happy New Year everyone! It's been awhile since I have posted on the dis. I booked the Yacht Club for Oct 26th - Nov 2nd. Wanted the beach club but no standard rooms were available.

Love food and wine festival. and going that week! We always enjoy ourselves.
We stayed at the boardwalk villas last trip and while we were fine with our stay there I really do not like the pool at all there. We missed SAB!

Our September stay at BC was in one of those rooms RIGHT at the top of the stairs and we absolutely loved it! It was super convenient to never need an elevator!


Aaaaand we just booked a stay at BC in May! We'll be there May 12th-15th! I can't WAIT! We completely fell in love with this place last year and it's our favorite summer getaway now!

I LOVE the look of the YC lobby and rooms and swore the next stay we booked would be for YC, but I chickened out and stuck with BC. We spend hours in SAB when we stay at BC, we barely bother with the parks, and it looked like SAB is a tiny bit closer to BC than YC. Does that seem right? I just really didn't want to have to traipse through the gorgeous YC lobby in my swim gear.

Soooo excited to be returning to BC! We stayed there in June 2009, and have always longed to go back. Loved how close it was to Epcot, HS; Beaches & Cream; SAB, etc. Now we will be staying at BCV on our 1st DVC trip!!!! We will be there July 26-31. Yes, hot..but can't wait!
