I've been lurking but haven't posted in a long time on this thread. We usually do a split stay between BC/Poly but decided to try the Yacht Club this time since it is a little cheaper. I really love BC and am worried that I made the wrong decision Can you Yacht Club experts reassure me?

bltman

Do you have an upcoming trip to the resort? Would you like to be added to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1?

I was so excited he said this. He knew how sad I've been about it, and just the hope on the horizon has just really perked me up! just had to share with a great bunch of people who "get it!"
That's encouraging news. Stalk those fall discounts!!!

Give me a million more good reasons to stay there vs GF- which we loved!!! we have 2 kids ages 11 and 7! The pool is so cool!!!
to this thread!

Once in a very rare while this has been mentioned, but I don't think it is a frequent issue because we don't hear this very often. Most of the time when smells are discussed regarding the Beach Club it is the pleasant scent generated in the lobby.

You nailed the two most important reasons for staying at this resort- being 5 minutes from EPCOT and close to HS, and the amazing pool.

We are AP holders so only thing on the card would be to get into the room.
Don't know- anyone have any thoughts about this? Perhaps you could email IPO and ask them for their suggestions about what to do.

My kids (7 and 4) don't know we are going, and we may not tell them until the day we leave! We stayed at Poly for a week 2 years ago (our first trip), and it was a perfect trip- January, no crowds, great food, loved the resort, etc. So I'm worried I have set myself up for failure this time, lol.

We're staying at YC, and have a Cape May breakfast planned for our first day. I am getting really excited, and I just had to share!


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1.



We have had the concern about how our next trip can possibly be better than our last, but we find that each time we vacation we find new things to enjoy and different types of magic with each trip. With your kids being a couple of years older, they will experience things in new ways.

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



BC is my favorite too, but I wouldn't hesitate for a moment staying at the Yacht Club! Same essential location, same management teams, same amenities. Plus you have a guaranteed full balcony.

Hopefully a few of our YC devotees will chime in and share their love of that resort with you.

The concierge had been VERY helpful!!!!! Love them!!!
Thank you very much for the information. I think we'll only bring the smaller stuff like the Kindle and the Nexus tablet. We will leave the iPad and laptop at home.

I have been revising the Other Useful Info Post-

I have added a "Do you have any packing tips" section and included links to NinjaMom and Best Aunt's very diverse styles of packing, as well as a couple of my own packing idosyncracies- I mean tips.


I also continue to adjust the "Will it fit (in the safe) post"

I added the great suggestion from E&BMom about using the safe deposit box at the front desk or the Bell Services cage.

Thanks again for the pictures. I have revised the info about room safes on the front page. May I include this photo?

BTW- BCV guests- I haven't seen the safes in this configuration before- portrait style rather than landscape. Are all of the BCV safes like this, or do they vary from room to room?

Did you pre-order a Photopass CD? You should have received an email telling you what to do when you get home. All you need to do when you get to WDW is to see any Photopass photographer and they will give you a card. Show that card to each Photopass photographer when you want your picture taken.
Good to know, whew. We are paid in full. So on or about T-38 days I'll watch for the Mickey Mail (YAYAYAYAYAY!!). Thank you! The Photopass was some special that I could get a discounted rate including it in our package. I used it before so I took the plunge and tried it booking along with the package. We'll see. Normally I use AAA to book, but I've become pretty savvy and felt comfortable running the "show" myself. I used a PIN code anyway, so I knew how to price shop etc.

All the safes we have had at BCV look like this. We have always been able to fit at least 2 iPads with 2 DSIs and wallets. We even have fit our laptops before. Plenty of room.

Last fall I was staying at BC with a friend who arrived the day before I did. She checked in and had them leave my key at the front desk. When I arrived I just gave them my name and they handed me the key.

Mickey mail!!!!

I finally received my Mickey mail at 32 days from check in!!! yeahhhh I do have a question that maybe you can answer.

We are only using ME on our way back home as we will be in Orlando for a few days prior to our check in to BC.. so there are 4 bright green sticker tags and 4 Mickey "name and address" type luggage tags. I am assuming that the bright green tags go on luggage the day of departure but my kids what to use the address tags for the suitcase on the way down. Is there any reason why they can't??? I would think only the neon tags get sorted for ME, right?? Thoughts??

sooo excited!!!!

They can use the address tags for the rest of their lives. We use address tags from 2000 for all our trips, no matter where we fly.

You only need the bright green luggage tags if you are using ME for travel from your home to the resort. They don't put them on the luggage for the return flight.

For your return flight home, if you are using an airline that has a luggage contract with WDW, then you can bring your luggage to the baggage check at the resort at least threes hours or more before your flight, and they will check in it for you.

Thanks for the quick reply.... just so I understand, we are NOT using ME on the way down because we are staying offsite for a few days prior to checking in at BC. Only using ME back to the airport on departure day. So, I don't need the green stickers at all?? Then they sent them to me in error?? Just assuming that I was using it on arrival day too??? The kids want to use the address tags to put on luggage today!! To make it official, your saying that its ok to use those, right?? thanks!!!

I'm sorry that I confused you. I misread your post when I first wrote my answer. Then I went back and edited it. I'm sorry.

No, you don't want to use the green tags at all if you are going from your home to a destination that is not WDW. And you won't need them for the return trip, either. I'm not sure why Disney sends them, but so many people change their reservations, maybe they find it better to play it safe.
