I keep hoping they do an update that includes the emoticons.

Just what I was going to ask. We had to book a split YC/BC stay b/c there was only club level at BC for the full week. I check daily to see if BC opened up. Now BC has lagoon view open the whole stay. Its still going to cost me $800-ish more than my split yc/bc gv stay. Decisions, decisions. I honestly don't care about the view...just don't want to have to move resorts.

ETA- apparently I am hallucinating...BC still wouldn't have availability for arrival night. So it would be about $650 more and we would still have to switch after the first night from YC to BC. Think I will save the $$ and do the 3 nights YC/ 5 nights BC split stay all garden view. I can buy a lot with $650.

We did a standard view split once. We went the other way BC>YC. And it is still one of my favorite trips. (And we've stayed CL several times.) Trust me. SV at both is still great and with the extra $$$$$ you could just order room service!

Hi everyone! I'm new here and have been reading all the previous posts for the past couple hours. But, I have a couple questions that I haven't seen answered (although I haven't gotten through all of the posts!). I think I read that the playground by Stormalong Bay is no longer there. Is there another playground somewhere on the property. With a 2 and 6 year old, we like our playgrounds for some down time.

We have stayed at the Yacht Club but will be at the Beach Club, in November, for the first time. When we stayed at the Yacht Club I made a room request to stay close to the Beach Club thinking there would be a staircase at the end of the building (obviously I didn't do my research before that trip). Well, our request was honored and we were placed at the far end of the building. This was quite a hike with a 3 year old in tow who didn't want to be carried. So, I don't want to make the same mistake this time. As of now I have requested a room close to Epcot. But, I'm having a hard time finding a map of the rooms at the Beach Club. Is this going to put us in the same situation as we were in at Yacht Club...this time with TWO slow pokes who want to be independent?!?!? Should I be making a different room request (close to elevators perhaps?)?

The 2nd elevator is near the quiet pool at BC which is close to Epcot. This was so handy as when we would leave Epcot we'd cut through the quiet pool area & walk in the back door & went up elevator to our room which faced the quiet pool. It's a great spot!

The nearest playground we found is over at the swan/dolphin. Its not too far to walk although it might take you a little longer than us given your kids ages but its really good fun for them and is bigger than the old one was at BC

If you tap on the post, it will open in a window "next to it", and it will post with all the emoticons. At least on my iPhone it does. No way to post any that I see, but I have not tried typing in the link. Have fun!

Thanks. I have done that before when I am not sure what the emoticon is, but it be so much easier if it just displayed initially. Hopefully, they will do an update for it.

Thanks for posting this! In December of 2012 this app was virtually worthless in the parks and about as functional as Test Track... which is to say NOT!



The dancing bananas are a list tradition that indicates extreme joy.
To wit:

If one says "Today is Monday and I'm wearing my Yacht Club polo shirt to go to McDonald's to get my bogo McRib" THAT is worth one dancing banana.

If one says "Today I saw a car with a bumper sticker that said HONK if you love Hurricane Hannah's" THAT is worth 2 dancing bananas.

If one says "Today I am building up my calluses for the sand bottom pool at Storm Along Bay" THAT is worth 1/4 of a dancing Banana.

But if one says "Today I called reservations and booked a stay at the Beach Club Villas that is so long, the Orange County Sheriff is going to have to pry my cold dead fingers off of the door frame and remove me from the premises!" THAT is worth a thundering herd of Dancing bananas!

If you want to be close to the center, than request a room near the central elevator. That will be convenient to the lobby.

Coming to YC CL Deluxe room in June. Does anyone know the location of these rooms? Are they close to the club?
