And we got a great 30% off BC. Tell me how much I will love it!!!
I'm not sure where you are getting your crowd info from but we'll be there Feb. 27 thru Mar 4 and it is a relatively uncrowded period.

That is the week of February Vacation for most of us here in the Northeast - President's Week can be VERY busy at WDW.

It would be my dream to stay at the BC. I would just love to be able to walk to Epcot. My kids went to the Kids Club At the BC last year so hubby and I toured it..... And we loved everything about it!

You may not be excited, but I'm excited for you!

Massachusetts schools have presidents week off and go back Feb 25th so I know presidents week is usually very busy.

President's week is the week before. Crowd calendars show the end of Feb to beginning of March to be relatively low crowds.
ETA: oops, I was confusing the OP's dates w/ sweettears' dates--sorry!

OP & sweettears, looks like we will be enjoying our BC stay around the same time! It'll be my fam's first stay there.

The deluxe hotels are just not in our budget. If we win a trip to Disney, BC is at the TOP of my list! We went to Cape May and just thought it looked so pretty and relaxing there. I think it is GREAT that you can walk to TWO parks there or check out the Boardwalk! The pool sounds awesome!

With the monorail being so crowded and sometimes down, I'd take walking to 2 parks in a heartbeat over staying at a monorail resort.

Forgot about Presidents Day. At least crowds should be thinning out as OPs trip goes on. We're actually staying at the YC. I need a balcony. You'll love BC.

We loved staying at BC and YC, being able to walk to 2 parks is incredible plus having SAB and the whole Boardwalk area is also great. I would love to try the Poly sometime but would go back to BC or YC any time that we could afford it.

We LOVE the BC! I love the laid back beachy feel with the soft blues and greens, plus the fun characters, like Sebastian and Flounder, on the carpet in the hallways! Plus, like mentioned above, we love being able to walk to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. I also wanted to mention that we also walk through Epcot to get to the monorail to take to the Magic Kingdom which is really nice because then we only have to take a bus to Animal Kingdom. I know this wont work if you don't have park hoppers and some might say its too much walking or extra work, but I like it and think its very nice. I really hope you like it as much as my family does!

Edit: right after I I submitted this I realized that it sounded like an infomercial! That was completely unintentional. Haha oops! But if you like it today you will receive this handy travel case at no extra charge!

Haven't stayed at the BC, but stayed at the YC, and LOVED IT!!!!! So calming. Great pool, Illuminations from our balcony. Love walking to two parks. We have stayed at the Poly, and hands down....BC is better! We love the Boardwalk area. It's a great resort....enjoy your stay!!
