FUN!!! Club level is really well worth the extra $$! I've never stayed at BC I have stayed at YC 4 times now. I love the resort... my favorite things are SAB just an amazing pool for any age. I love the walk to EPCOT and all the dinning options that are right there. As it has been said by Dee on many occasions quick services are right there just a 5 min walk away and you can get it to go and bring back to the pool! The whole area is great with so much to do! Just remember one thing... once you go club level it's hard to go back!!

The days will pass quickly and you will be there before you know it!! Have fun reading and learning all that the YC/BC area has to offer!!

Thanks for the helpful replies. I think that we will just take the luggage with us when we transfer to and from POP. When we make the change from BCV to BC, if the room is ready we will just take our luggage to the BC lobby and have a bellman take it up for us. IF the room isn't ready we will send it to Bell services and call them when we will be in the BC room to retrieve it.

Did I get this right?

Thanks again.

We are doing our first CL stay soon, and that's exactly what I said! I was like, I don't think we are going to be able to go back after this! Lol. CL will be so worth it, and I'm pumped to try it at YC!

I also have a feeling YC will be my new fave! The pics online are so darn pretty!!

@mopp22, I have never been to WL so I'm afraid I can't answer your question, but I think the biggest difference will be the location! Epcot a walk away, and DHS a short boat ride. So great!


And living in NY, looks like I won't be able to make it to work tomorrow night! Not braving that storm with a 12 year old civic!

Yes you're exactly right! Schools & Manhattan & surrounding cities, the airport cxed everything & I was upset because I wanted to go home. I had never in my life seen so much freaking snow, that was an experience. Nice experience to see the hustle & bustle of Manhattan--- then a few days later, like a ghost town! Good times, Good times!!

DH & I have been looking into DVC (ok mostly me, ), and have been in contact w/ DVC. We watched the DVD & read over the paperwork. I'd really like BCV. So DH & I had long talk about it today & he said "I like staying at BC/YC only.". DH loves the water view & at BCV no crescent lake view! I wish they put it in another spot! DH would rather pay more for the view, whereas I truly do love the view, but want to go more often. I know you can stay in the hotel using DVC, but it's so many points! I love how DH is standing up for BC/YC though, so cute! I'm not really looking for any real advice, its just i love talking Disney which drives DH nuts , so it's nice to have a group of Disney lovers to gab with! I'm just missing my BC/YC! Thanks for listening to my rant!

Could someone tell me how long it should take to drive to DTD from the BC? I'm trying to make a lunch reservation at T Rex for my 4 year old and plan to go after he gets back from the Albatross Cruise, but I'm not sure how much time I should give ourselves.

Thanks!

You got that right. I'm not sure if you will have a car or not, but if you don't, you will have to take a cab. You aren't allowed to take your luggage on Disney transportation. You probably already knew that, but I figured I would point that for anyone else that might be reading.

I will be SO amused if there is like a "poof" of white stuff here in NY. Everyone is preparing for the Apocalypse. Hehehehe. Meanwhile I'll be dreaming of my beloved... T-93 days... Sigh...

Everyone everywhere stay safe!!!

We stayed at BCV for the first time in October (we own at BWV and BLT) and had a wonderful studio that overlooked to DVC pool. It was lovely. And I was able to get my fill of that gorgeous view of Crescent Lake while lounging at SAB.

My fiance and I really liked the fact that the villas were set back from the main building, they were more quiet and tranquil than BC. YMMV, but I'd encourage you and your husband to plan a weekend trip where you rent points at BCV to get a feel for what it's like to stay there. Maybe your DH will surprise you and love it!

It should take about 10-15 minutes to drive from BC to DTD (depending on traffic and lights), the real time suck can be finding a parking spot. I'd leave BC about a half-hour or 45 minutes before your ADR. Enjoy!

Hi.. quick question: What is the current line of H2O toiletries at the BC?

Last time I was CSR, I bough DH a large size of the H20 shampoo they have on DCL - I think it is Sea Marine (it's green). I was so happy to see it at the gift shop at my resort, especially since it wasn't the same as the kind that Mousekeeping leaves in the rooms.
