Thanks once again to Dee for doing another fantastic job starting up our new home.

If anyone is interested, we were at the GF in the Sugar Loaf CL building last week, and I'll be writing up a short comparison of that stay and our stays at YC CL. I'll post it on this thread so, stay tuned.......

Hint: we liked YC better.

Ed

I'll be very interested in this. I have always thought I wanted to stay at GF. We don't come often and when we do we like to do CL if we can. By what I read, it seems like RPC is fantastic, but way out of budget, and the outer building CL is not great. Can't wait to see your review.

Thanks for the beautiful new thread, Dee. If we were at BC right now, I'd buy you a sunken treasure!

We are all set for our April Beach Club vacation, water view, paid in full. Today I was bored so I got playing around on the WDW web site and saw that club level standard view is available during our stay. OH NOOOO, what to do????? It's $500 more, but that only works out to $50 a day more for the 3 of us and breakfast + snacks + beer or wine I think it will actually save us a little $. What I am worried about is losing a great view and we also are really hoping to have a full balcony. Any one care to tell me what you would do? Does anyone know if club level standard view rooms have a full balcony?

According to my notes, most of the BC CL SV rooms have a full balcony. There are just a handful that do not.

Personally, I would choose CL over view, because the view isn't that important to my family (but a full balcony is). The one BC CL SV room we stayed in had views of Illuminations and the MK fireworks, so we were actually pretty happy with that (I have the views posted in the "View" thread I referenced earlier)

The convenience of the club level breakfast is incredible.

There's my $.02

You know I'm in! Thanks for the new thread Dee, we're lucky to have you!

@Lobsterslayer we faced the same debate for our YC stay in October and we ultimately decided to upgrade to CL. We figure there are so many places to enjoy the gorgeous views at the resorts, the convenience of CL was too tough to pass up!
