My husband is thrilled. Love being retired from Disney.
I'll make the adjustment to the list!

Sounds like a super smart move!

Would you like to be added to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1? When is your trip?

These photos always make the safe look like a walk-in closet.
Thanks for all of the safe info, everyone!

Still you are probably able to use the lounge until midnight of your check out day (someone else can probably confirm this) which would give you 3 days club level (except for the sleeping bit on the 3rd day) and it would be nice to experience it all. Plus you get the benefit of club level check-in on your first day which is so nice Ok just sold myself on the idea lol

If you wrap a plain noodle around you, it would be in the same shape. The only difference is with the chair their is mess under your rear.
I'm guessing these aren't allowed at SB, but does anybody know for sure?

Yep! You get club level from time in you check in on 1st day until midnight on day of checkout

I haven't stayed at that CL but at CR they were really nice. A CM told me to use shower in the exercise room after my afternoon swim because no one would be there vs doing it at the pool. That was a great tip! I had a whole room to myself to shower,dry my hair etc! See if this available there it would be handy.

We had a 7pm flight and ds15 hung out in the lounge playing his ds in a corner while we swam! He enjoyed having a space to hang out.( and those home made potato chips, and cookies too)

I'll also add the the useable depth at BCV is approximately the same as the width of a standard US passport. About 3"? I don't have a ruler.

I'd bet no in Storm Along Bay but Yes in the quiet pool...

The quiet pool might actually be the place to use something like this....

For that short amount of time being conveniently located between two parks sounds like a win to me.... GO FOR IT!!!

If you can afford it, I say go for it. Since it's a short trip, the convenience of being able to walk to two parks can't be beat.

I think it depends on the ages of your kids. A family of 5 in a POR room is going to be cozy. The extra space alone may be worth the switch. And I agree that being able to walk to 2 parks makes a big difference for a short trip.

I would go for it! POR is nice but its not BC/YC. You get so much more. For us it's worth the $$
