Sorry to keep bombarding this thread with questions, I'm so amped for our stay at YC! I'm not sure if anyone would even be able to answer, but I'll give it a try. We were unable to get a garden view with the discount we used, so we opted for a standard view. We REALLY want a nice view since we do use the balconey often. We will be getting to the hotel early (if that helps...?). If we ask for a 'nice' view (even if it means a paid upgrade) will we have a good chance of getting it? Thanks for any insight

You can ask for a "nice view" and hope for some chance of an upgrade, but you should expect that it is just a request, and not something they are guaranteed to fulfill.

I can tell you that we were at YC in March and loved our view. We wanted GV but it wasn't available, so we had to settle for the standard view. There are so many trees on the property, that even when you overlook the parking lot, it is still pretty. When you are seated on the balcony and look out, you see the trees. The added bonus of the YC SV, is that you may also have a nice view of Wishes.

Here are some links to our standard view pics from my trip report.

I have a YC SV CL for April...where would I want to be located for a potential fireworks view...I didn't think you could see Wishes for YC, I though only possible high fireworks from Illuminations?

I've seen some fireworks from the BC/YC area. They are in the opposite direction to Epcot. They are pretty far away. I've never been 100% sure if they were from MK or if some other local area had fireworks.

So far it's pretty pleasant. We landed last night around 10:30. Today was sunny, partly cloudy but nice and warm. That's in Lauderdale. Hopefully the weather will be as nice in Orlando. Driving up Wednesday. Wishing you a safe trip down.

Thank you soo much for all this information. My DH and I have stayed at the YC concierge level x2 and BC x1, and BCV x1. I didn't even know BC had a concierge level. We will be bringing DS, DDL DD and her friend June 1 - 8 to BCV 2 Bdr. I am so excited to come back home. At first wanted to try BW but DH said but I love BC so that's where we will be.

This a special trip for my DS12. He has a medical condition that is causing him to lose his hearing, and will be having surgery this summer to try and salvage some hearing. He is very nervous about this so we are hoping to use this trip to distract him. He is planning the whole trip with me and he will get to surprise his siblings the night before we leave, we are not telling them until then.
Thanks so much to all who post in this thread! I have learned so much and laughed so much as I have lurked

Good luck to your son and all of you.

Hubby is going to run the half marathon that weekend so I am excited to be right there in the action of that and F&W festival. (We have never been to F&W either!) A lot of firsts.


You are going to love the location, especially for a F&W visit!

A question for the parents on this thread -- my husband will be joining us a few days into our trip, so I'll be solo with my daughter while she enjoys SAB for the first time. Is there's particular place that you'd recommend a parent sit/stand to keep an eye on her while she likely rides the Jib slide over and over and over again? I'm not worried about her safety in the pool when she zooms in coming off of the slide, but I'm a bit nervous about her needing to repeatedly cross a public walkway for the entry to the slide, and thought I'd try to park myself somewhere where I could keep an eye on her as she crosses the walkway and gets to the entry for the slide again.

Thanks very much for any thoughts you can share based on your previous experiences!
to this forum and to the DIS!

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

Got out confirmation this morning! We're booked at the YC for part one of our Graduation Celebration!!!! Thank you all for your help and advice. This is a really friendly group here on the BC/YC thread. Now fingers crossed for some Disney discounts for the beginning of August...
PS does anyone know how to display tickers side by side????

We are so excited to be returning there again this summer. We usually stay CL but opted for a 1 bedroom villa instead this time. The price was exactly the same for a 1BV as a regular CL room. We will be celebrating my husband's return from a 9 month deployment in Afghanistan so the extra space will be nice. We stayed CL for 9 nights last year and we enjoyed it. I feel like the CM's are hit or miss as with anywhere. The offerings don't work great for our family as my DH is the only one who actually eats the food. The offerings are fine it is just that my DD's and I are super picky, lol. We have not stayed on the villa side before but looking forward to the extra space, the washer and dryer and the full kitchen. I don't love that my daughters won't have a "real" bed but they will do just fine on the pull out and will love having a "space of their own" at night. I have considered bringing a blow up matress with us also but we will figure that out later.

We will be in Orlando for 5 nights prior to WDW so it will be nice to do laundry and stuff when getting to BC after 5 hot days in the FL sun.

We are driving so it will make stocking the kitchen very easy. What I can't bring with us we will stop and buy at the store on the way to BC after Sea World and Universal.

If anyone has any tips on the villas, what to pack, etc I would really apprieciate it!!

Can't wait to see pics of the new Hurrican Hana's menu. If there is one thing I think the BC is lacking is QS food (and the bus system but that is ).

Does anyone know if a milkshake is a snack credit at the take out window of Beaches and Cream? Allears has it as a snack but others don't list it as a snack. Just wondering if anyone has had experience with this?

Also, this may have been brought up already but how will they handle entrance to SAB with the new MagicBands? If there is no room key just wondering how it will be. I am super excited for the MagicBands! I am hoping that there is a way to scan in to SAB. It would really cut down on all of those who spend their weekend there and are not staying at the hotel. The locals who just look at the wristband color for the day and just spend the day in the pool. It frustrates me how busy the pool is on Sat and Sun yet room occupancy is relativly the same the other days of the week. I am really hoping the MagicBands help with all of this! I know Disney does their best but I think the wristbands should be printed with the hotel's name (as Aulani does it) so the wristbands for SAB can't just be purchased at the local party store. Sorry, I am off my soapbox now...lol


Thank you to your husband and family for your service to our country!!!

Hopefully folks will have some answers to your questions.

So... are you visiting the *ahem* "Dark Side" to see a certain wizard before your Disney stay? I have a trip report from our visit to US/IoA and SW from my trip in 2011- the report is "Welcome Foolish Muggles" and is in my signature below. Lots of tips.

west&east or pixarmom- could one of you check if the milkshakes are a snack credit at B&C? Do we have a picture of the B&C takeout menu?

Thank you!

yes we will be going to the "dark side". We have not been to US/IA since 2007. DD (12) wants to see it. My DH thinks it is a waste of time. We used to live in Southern California and every time we would go to Knotts or Universal we would leave half way through the day and head back to Disneyland. He is worried the same thing will happen this time. Universal in FL is much better than the one in CA and I think that we will enjoy it. Right now they have a miltiary special that came out in Oct and is over in June. He has been deployed since Oct and does not come back till July. I am hoping however that they extend the special but who knows. If not we will just bite the bullet. We are also going to Sea World (which we have never been to in FL). We have to the one in San Diego many times and also the one in San Antonio. Since they too are offering a military free tickets for the day we figured why not. We have to though start the trip off on the "dark side" or there is no way we would leave Disney to head to these other places, lol. Oh I can't wait to read your trip report!!

I know the menu at B&C does not reflect the milkshakes as a SC (well at least the latest pic I saw) but Allears has it listed. If it is a SC I know where my daughters will be using all of their snacks! Thank you to anyone who knows or can check for me!
