To be honest, I always thought that the second floor was club level since it looks so awesome. I had been tempted to walk up the stairs many times, but was afraid of encountering some stern faced CM telling me I didn't belong up there.
Thanks!!! I highly recommend WL CL!!! It is FANTASTIC!!!

I know that doesn't look like the "best view ever" and it's really more about the location and the atmosphere - just so lively right there in the center of the resort. Makes it feel cozy.

Great people watching!!!

I still don't know which room or rooms at the YC are like that, but I suspect that they are rooms that have just one queen or one king. There may be a couple of rooms with that configuration.

Thanks so much for finding it! That is great! Now I just have to see how to request it!

Hi Everyone, I'm new to this thread because I just booked my 50th birthday celebration and it is the first time I will be staying at the beach club, so any tips will be appreciated.
It's me and 23 year daughter and we reserved a garden view, is there any suggestions as to room requests.
We are so looking forward to staying in one of the Epcot resorts, can't wait.

My first trip to Disney was on my honeymoon, where we stayed at CBR. Since then, 12 years ago, we have been back 9 times with our boy staying at CBR, AK and BC. I hear other people returning from vacations say,"It was fun, but its soooo good to be home!". In all 12 years that we have been visiting Disney World,(and DL once!) I have never, ever said that I'm happy to be home. I usually try to get an extra day if we can squeeze it in. Am I the only one? We love our WDW and DL trips!!! I very often try to recreate Disney magic at home with Mickey pancakes, using Disney dishes, recipes, etc. I love and live Disney magic! To me, I truly "get" all the little nuances and touches that create the magic, and I love it! I csn close my eyes and remember the BC lobby scent, and its wonderful! I know I'm not the only one, but I do occasionally wonder why I enjoy this more than others might. BRING ON THE DISNEY MAGIC!

Experiences Disney Racers who stayed at BC--How are the buses to the start? I have been reading a lot of reports from this last weekend that the bus lines were worse than normal at some resorts. I plan to be on the bus as close to 3am as possible for Princess last month but any advice would be awesome. Also, we plan to walk back through Epcot after the race, if that a quicker choice over taking the bus?

You could totally do it! There are so many walkers at races and Jeff Galloway does training plans for Disney using the run/walk method that makes it so easy!!

I can't wait to be back at BC next month.

So glad to hear you are checking out the Beach Club for this trip! I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1.

When is your trip? Would you like me to add you to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1?



Speaking of Page 1, if you haven't had a chance to check it out, that is a great place to start to find the info you need and lots of pictures of the resort.

As far as requests, if you want a full balcony as opposed to a smaller one that just fits just a single person, then you want to add "Full balcony, please" to your reservation. Requests are not guaranteed, but the room assigners will do their best.

If it is just two of you, there is a possibility (slight) that you may be assigned to one of the very few rooms that has a single queen or king bed. If you prefer two separate bed, you may want to add "Mom and daughter traveling together- 2 queen beds, please"

I'm not sure how to get around the room occupancy limits. I can't remember if BC CL LV is always at 4 plus. Anyone know if that just changed?

I'll update your listing.

I think that was a smart change! I definitely prefer the CL convenience to a better view.

IF you don't have any other requests, I suppose you could try "Daybed AND sofa bed with dividing curtain" to see what you get, but it could be risky. There are probably very very few rooms with this configuration, so the likelihood that one of them will be available on the day you check in and for your length of stay is probably pretty slim. Again, I'm guessing these rooms only have one queen or king bed.

I'm glad you posted the pictures again.

We had a very similar view during our 2009 trip, from a little higher up (Room 5631). Mark LOVED the people watching from the balcony. One night, during a lightning storm, he called me over and said "Watch this". Families would come to the door, look out at the weather, take a few steps out, then return back to the lobby. Like, 10 different groups of people did this!

Is the pool as crowded in April as August?

Also, to get s full balcony, is that what we request? Or are there specific rooms I should request. Going with a garden view room.

Thanks!!
Just bumping this question..

Anyone been in both April and August? We stayed at the YC in 8/11 and I did not enjoy the pool very much (rained every afternoon, 7 months pregnant, water was HOT, not refreshing). Is it better in April? I'm thinking of giving it another try!

Thanks!!

Those pictures of the courtyard views are actually also great pictures for the Deluxe CL room thread. I'm 99% sure that rooms 3691 and 4691 are straight across the courtyard on the corner. (Though room 3691 looks like it's on the second floor, I believe there is no second floor because it's part of the lobby.) So room 3691 has the full balcony and 4691 has the standing. I wonder if 3691 would have any issues because it's above Cape May Cafe? I thought I saw someone somewhere say it smelled a bit like seafood.

I'm planning a Deluxe room stay and since there are only six rooms I'm kind of making a list of the ones I'd prefer. I doubt I'll really have an option at check in, but just in case I do I want to be ready. I thought I'd like something by the quiet pool, but the location of those rooms looks like more fun!

Just booked our trip officially!! After 5 stays in BC we will be trying out YC for the first time. With the discount we are using, it was either waterview for either YC or BC (an extra $250) or standard YC, so we chose standard at YC May 20th week!

We usually try for GV, but didn't work out for us, any chance we will still get a decent view? Guess we will ask for a nice view at check in, cuz we have been lucky with our garden views at BC. We also got great ressie times for Cape May and another first, Ohanas.

Another quick inquiry, We usually go to BC Marketplace to buy the refillable mugs for coffee and sodas, we can get the same at Ale and Compass yes? Thanks

I think I had replied before that my only two stays at the Beach Club have been in July. I did want to comment that the first year we went, 2009, I also found the pool to be on the warm side. The following year, same week in 2010, we found the pool to be much more refreshing than it had been on our first trip. So it can definitely vary.

I would certainly think the pool temps would be very comfortable in April!

The view was towards Epcot. We could see a few high fireworks. The exact view is on page 1 post #8, scroll down- I took the picture of the different types of balconies from our balcony. When looking down, the view was of the volleyball court. Looking to the right you could see a little water.

Floor by Floor map with Room Numbers and Category

Hi all, we are headed back to BC after several years away. I used to have a map that showed a floor by floor map of the BC with room numbers and categories for each room. The website that it was on does not show it anymore. Does anyone know where I might find that again? I am trying to remember what to request for our standard view room. Thanks so much.
