Was just browsing YouTube for room tours of the YC and saw this one from TouringPlans. What room category is this? Aside from the view, it looks amazing! Might have to try and get this on our upcoming trip.

I was thinking a size that you could put onto your key ring, but most people aren't carrying their keys around when they are vacation. So, credit card size it is!! natebenma can you declare the Sunken Treasure as the "state" drink of the Beachclub Resort thread? Lobster and Shrimp Roll as the "state" food? The Famous Fish as our "state" fish? The Oreo Bon Bon as our "state" dessert? Can you tell I'm obsessing over this whole bit Helps me to keep thinking about Disney and Beachclub
Love this and the fact that Dee is already on it!!

Here's the link to pictures from Room 1647 (BC 1BR Suite)

http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...72&postcount=8

It looks like there is a couch/sofa in the bedroom, but I have no idea if it is a pullout or not.

There seems to be a separate, small room with a daybed.

Maybe not all of the 1BR rooms have a sofa in the bedroom. I don't even know how many of these rooms there are.

Did you call the Disney CRO or the BC/YC IPO for the info about the rooms?

My very uneducated guess is Accessible King Room.

OK, my dates are the same for July 2014 but I caved. I caved like a sinkhole in the Florida sand! The adult children (mostly led by my oldest son) that are coming on our trip convinced me that it was far more important for the twelve of us to have a gathering place than it was to go up and down an elevator. They also pointed out that although they really like the lounge at the YC, it really isn't that big and if 12 of us constantly gathered there then the other guests would start to dislike us, sssssssooooooo, I booked the ADMIRAL SUITE!! Now I'm really interested in reading emmysmommy's trip report.
I'll update your listing!

Sounds wonderful!

Is that one of the Deluxe rooms? I read somewhere that they used to have the french door. I know BC Deluxe rooms can sleep 5, but the Yacht Club deluxe rooms sleep fewer.

According to my notes, it is a 1 Bedroom Suite at BC. Unless there is another bedroom I think this room only sleeps 3 (2 in bedroom, one on sofa bed)

As you indicated, the Deluxe BC rooms sleep 5.

I'm trying to gather as much info as possible about the suites and deluxe rooms, so if anyone has descriptions or pictures to share, I would appreciate it!

I did think of a couple of things!!!

Can you check at the BC Marketplace to see if they sell gallons of water, and how much they are? That would be a great solution for filling reusable water bottles to take to the park, rather than the individual plastic water bottles.

I still have not seen pictures of the solarium since the gym moved out.

Does anyone have photos?

If not, is it possible for you to take a couple so we can see how the space looks?

Thanks!!!

Dee

Thank you natbenma,

These pictures are great! They look very similar to what is on the Disney website. I was originally staying at YC in a deluxe cl room but I changed to the BC 1 bedroom suite. I was just confused because when I called to change my reservation, I was told there isn't a sofa. I probably should call the IPO.

I appreciate your help!

I'm on it!

But I'm a little ignorant about the gym/solarium relationship. I'm aware of a solarium near the Marketplace. That's the one pictured at the bottom of post #6 in this thread, right? So what are you looking for in relation to the gym?

Yes, I am talking about the solarium that is in the post you referenced.

The health club at BC/YC was renovated this fall, and while it was closed, fitness equipment was moved into the Solarium. It became the make-shift gym for the resort.

Work was completed on the health club in November or December, and I presume that the solarium is put back the way it was, but I haven't actually seen any pictures.

So this is a long-winded explanation saying- I wouldn't mind seeing a few pictures of the Solarium.

I am all set on the health club. Someone provided pictures of that after it reopened.

Thanks!

Ah, now I get it. I missed that the gym was temporarily in that space. Thanks for clarifying. I'll get a few shots for you.
