I'll pencil you in on the list for April/May 2014. Let us know when your dates firm up.

This place left much to be desired back in 2008 so I'm excited to try it again.

Even though I've been to BC before, I will probably have some questions so I appreciate all the help in advance


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



Let us know how we can help with any info!

Pretty quick walk to lobby. If you look at the Disneyzone room map posted on the first few pages of this thread, you will see where I mean. The room categories on the map are outdated so it says they are standard but they should be garden view.


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest for Oct- YC/Poly split. Are you are still working on exact dates?

Should we use the ME for our luggage? How long might it take to get our luggage? The kids are carrying their clothes onto the plane, DH and I are checking ours.


I would love to add you to the Be Our Guest list on page 1. April?



The two times I took ME from MCO to BC it was 1 1/2 hours from touchdown to the BC doors (with stops at POR and BWI). This was with a 10 am arrival time. Advice given here is to expect up to 2 hours.

I love using the ME for luggage! We just take anything we might need that day in our carryon. If you want you can stash the carryon with Bell Services if you want to go for a swim in SAB or visit a park while waiting for your room if it isn't ready.

Up to 3 hours for your luggage to appear in the room. It has been there when we have returned from the parks.

Thanks!!
I have you on the list for Nov- does the YC part of your trip stretch into Nov?

I haven't seen this discussed- how does the advanced pre-registration/checkin work for split stays. Can you check into both places on the 60 day mark? Or wait until 60 days from the second stay? Or do two checkins???

In any event, your checkin would be sometime in August, right? Hopefully we will have more info and advice this summer about the advanced checkin.

Hey, have a fantastic trip!!!

There's nothing that comes to mind right now, but my mo is to think of something for guests to check about after they have left for their vacations!

Hi Scott,

I'm pretty sure that the back of the resort is considered to be the parking lot side, not the water view. It is standard terminology to refer to the side facing the water as the front. To be on the safe side and to avoid all confusion, you might be better off not asking for the back entrance, unless you really do want to be above the driveway.

I'm just excited to be staying at BC!

It seems that the options for CL were pretty much the same that are given to anyone checking in.

First it asked for your expected arrival and departure times.
Then a cell phone number for notification as to when your room is ready (if not at check in).
Then the credit card number to put charges to.
Then pin numbers for the adults. (It did ask for a pin for my 11 year old, but on the confirmation page, it doesn't show her as having charging privileges. That's how I'd prefer it, so I'm not sure why it asked for a pin.)
The options I was given were large balcony, near transportation, or lower floor. There was also a 4th button you could click on - that said "I would like my room to be ready before check in time, and understand that this would override other preferences." Or something close to that...
I too just completed online check-in, we're staying GV CL too. I thought that the option selections were silly, since GV CL is 5th fl. I would think since they have your room level they would tailor the options to your category, but it didn't. It also forced me to set a PIN for my 11yr old, (I tried to bypass it but couldn't), then on the final page did not show her as having privileges to charge (whew).

Yeah, I have a little "electronic storage issue" problem.

Oh, thanks so much for the kind words!!!

Which one(s)- Disney? Universal/SW/MK or one of the others? (Puerto Rico, Atlantis, Mexico?)

Really? The quiet pool is a plausable view with a GV booked? I thought it would have been considered a water view. Hmm.....

Again...really? I always assumed the front of BC/YC would be where the bus pulls up, therefore making the entrances facing Crescent Lake the back entrances.

OK, I know none of us ever obsess about our trips so please forgive my obsession with my late check in time. Should I do online check in and risk getting a room at the back end of beyond, or should I just do my check in when I get there some time around 8 pm. I have never arrived this late in the day. Not handling the dilemma too well.

Bummer that we don't get special online check in treatment. Oh well, at least our stuff should be ready when we get there!

How does everyone get all these pins? I haven't received one in years. Also, is there a place that would list any conference booked at the YC?

It's an actual pin that you can wear. Nannette will mail them out to you so that you can wear it while at the hotel so fellow DISers can see you.

There's a picture posted earlier in the thread. The pins are really cute! I'm going to ask for one about a month before we go.

Nannette is so nice for doing this!

You may want to ask now! I think she is down to just 5 more.
