Darn!!!

I am so confused about the YC stuff!!!

I was going to ask you if you knew if 3209 and 4209 are Deluxe Rooms (which are different from the BC Deluxe) or if they are Suites. According to someone who stayed there and wrote a TR, 3209 has 2 Kings, a daybed and 2BR, and according to the Disney site, the YC Deluxe has 2 Queens and I think just one BR.

If they are not the Deluxe rooms, which ones are???

Are there any 1 BR Suites at YC?

Anyone out there know???

Sounds like BCD may have jumped the gun with the new thread.

I have no idea why I thought these were all on the same floor?! Haha! Thank you!

I know that YC/BC now has the new bracelets for park admissions and for entrance to room and for SAB and also charging to the room. Do you have to get these or can you get a key card for your room? I'm not a fan of having anything around my wrists.

How does this work for those of us who have a car when we go to the YC/BC, do they have a special reader at the gate? (We take the car to go to dinners and to other parks)

I'm an annual passholder so my room key is usually different than my park admission. Anyone know how this is going to work?

Coincidently, just this morning, my "friend", BeachClubDee, started a thread about the YC Deluxe rooms and suites.

ETA- Oh, I see you found it.
I did, right after I sent off this response! Thanks so much.

I just wanted to introduce myself! My name is Beth and we will be staying at BC for the first time this August as part of my 40th birthday trip! I can't believe it all worked out for us to be able to go; I am so excited! This thread has been so helpful! I can't thank you enough. I got so much useful info out of it and it was great to show my kids, who were initially really set on wanting to go to the Poly... once they saw a couple of pics, they were thrilled to try the beach club. And I love that because of everything I've learned on this thread, I have been able to answer a lot of their (and dh's) questions about the resort.

Dh and I have said for years that we would like to try the BC but never felt "ready" to make that leap. The deal through Magical Vacations inspired us to go for it. At first, I felt like I was settling because we all really planned that our next trip would be Poly again for sure. But now we are actually really excited and even if we could get a comparable deal at Poly I really think we would prefer to try BC.

Thanks again and look forward to trying to keep up around here! This place moves fast!

What a great way to celebrate turning 40
It is so nice on the boardwalk, love strolling to HS and Epcot.
Your kids will love the pool.

I'd be very interested in this info too. We haven't heard from ALMinVA, who's there now, maybe when she's back she'll give us the scope in a TR.

Think of how much money she could make if she shipped them out to all of us waiting for our vacations to start. The lucky girl would never have to leave the resort! (she would be knee deep in lobster rolls though.. )

I did go thru here... but not the post I actually posted on. I ended up finishing up all of someone's points for $5 per point I've had some good deals on points in my time--but never something this amazing. Plus--being that it's January--the points are lower

I was only planning on one night, but it was too good, so I ended up with 2. What a steal--I am so excited I can't stand it!! It made it easier to convince DH since we only live 3 miles away.

Think she could send some grey goose and gran mariner slushies along with the lobster rolls, too? I'd pay top Disney Dollars for them!

Sounds like they still have a lot to work out on this. IMO they will have to have a different option than bracelet. A lot of folks don't like things on their wrist. Here is a post from Jim Hill Media yesterday with some of updated information. As with all second hand information proceed on your own>>>>

Anyway ... So just to recap here: Though the start of official onsite testing of MagicBands has now been quietly pushed back to late February / early March, it's still full speed ahead for the My Disney Experience program. Which Company officials eventually hope will bring that hassle-free, pampered feel of a Disney Cruise to the Walt Disney World Resort vacation experience.

That said, Disney knows that a lot of people will be paying very close attention to what happens during the initial roll-out / in-park tests of those MagicBands. Which is why -- rather than allowing Guests who are staying at Disney's Boardwalk to have first crack at this particular component of the My Disney Experience program -- the thinking now is that they may need to get away from the Epcot Resorts area. That a far more remote resort might be a better test site for the initial roll-out of MagicBands. Which is why the in-house scuttlebutt now is that Guests staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge may wind up being the guinea pigs for this yet-to-be-field-tested-in-a-large-way element of MyMagic+. That it'll be people who've booked packages at AKL who'll be the first to be issued MagicBands.

But make no mistake, folks. In spite on any privacy concerns that Ed Markey's letter to Bob Iger last week may have raised, the My Disney Experience program is still going forward. The Walt Disney Company has put too much time & money into the development of MyMagic+. Though that said, Mouse House managers recognize that -- given how long it took to educate WDW visitors about the particulars of FASTPASS when that ride reservation system was first introduced back in 1999 -- there'll be a pretty steep education curve with the public when it comes to this much-more-involved use of technology. Especially since some of the more innovative features of the My Disney Experience program (EX: The ability to order quick service meals in advance from anywhere inside of a WDW theme park using your smart phone) aren't expected to come online for a few months yet.
