I hope you get to make your first visit to BC in Aug. We have been there twice and it is our favorite so far!

If you ship a box to the resort is it fairly simple to retrieve it or can it be a pain? Thanks!!

Very simple. You just let them know at Bell Services and then you just chase them around the lobby with a pitch fork if they don't bring it up in 30 minutes or less, like a pizza.

All kidding aside it really is easy. Just be sure to follow the instructions on page 1 of THIS thread for shipping packages to the BC/YC. Only the United States Postal Service will deliver directly to the resort. The other carriers (UPS, Fed EX, Pitch fork express) get routed to the convention center and that is a chore to hump over there and pick the package up yourself (and pay a ransom fee!).

When I stayed at the BC in December DH called down to let them know we had a package mailed and could they please bring it up with the bags when our room was ready. Sure enough it arrived with the bags.

Simple

Is it because they are smaller than daybeds in designated 5+ rooms? Or are they just picky? Any ideas or know-how on this?
Hi I think it's because there are so few of those rooms they dont list it as a bookable category. We have asked on check-in if the view from the room is nice and they have always done their best to help

Hi all! Long time lurker here :-). My family and I are staying BC LV March 1-9. So excited! Can't wait for the kids to experience SAB, and to try a sunken treasure for myself, lol!

Also, I have a question. This past August, dh and I took a kidless trip and stayed at the YC. I've been trying to figure out what kind of room we had, to no avail! Sadly I didn't take a pic. It had a king bed, with a couch, chair, coffee table, and desk, and a wet bar. The sinks were in the bathroom as opposed to the typical layout where they're outside the toilet/shower area. Any guesses? We did try to upgrade to CL at check-in, but were reserved for GV.

Thanks, and I'm excited to be a part of this group!

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




I'm intrigued!!! We have had a devil of a time tryng to get info about "special" rooms at the YC.

Do you happen to have a room number?

Did your room have access to the CL lounge?

We were on the second floor, and could see a little bit of the quiet pool. I can't remember the room number! No CL lounge access though. It was an awesome room, especially for the two of us! The bathroom would've been difficult with the kids, but we wouldn't have had a king bed then anyway ;-).

We are booked the lat week of May 5/24-6/1 so DD13 will be out of school. There are a few 4s on the crowd calendar but also some 6s, 8s, 10. Yikes! So I was worried about crowds and also not being able to get a decent price on airfare. Thinking of switching to 10-18 or 11-19. However only lagoon view is available. Not paying extra $700! So we can either switch to YC or do the 11th in a lagoon view, check out and then do the 12-19 in a garden view. Would that be pretty seamless to switch rooms? I don't want it eating into our vacation time. Would it be better to stay at YC the whole time? For some reason YC isn't as exciting for me.

I think you all have seriously invaded my brain. While drinking coffee this morning, I got extremely excited when Captain Hook mentioned "Sunken Treasure"
92 days until we are experiencing BC for the first time!

I just don't want to be looking directly into a tree at all times. We also noted in our reservation that we would like to stay close to the lobby and have a full balcony. Here is hoping for some pixie dust for a good view! I am an early riser and would like to enjoy a balcony this year!

DH said that since we are flying this year instead of driving he didn't want the hassle of a split stay. So now we are staying BC June 29-July 15!

I couldn't get a low fare for the flight home with Frontier so now we are flying down on Frontier and home on Jet Blue! This trip gets crazier and crazier!
Great news!

Now on to planning our Aug YC stay at the dark side . So far planning a Boardwalk restaurant crawl. Haven't ate there since Spoodles.
