Thank you for the welcome natebenma!

Lagoon/Pool view and up are all available. I may just book the lagoon view and wait to see if anything opens up. I'm a tried and true Poly fan, but I love the idea of all the hot tubs and the walk to our two favorite parks. Looking forward to staying at the YC for our 25th anniversary!

Whenever I want to get a ballpark idea of conventions I Google:

Disney Yacht Club convention September 2013
Disney Yacht Club conference September 2013
Disney Yacht Club events September 2013 (This tends to pick up Disney Institute events)

It works pretty well.

Hi, we'll be staying BC CL-GV in August. I'm a little bummed, I wanted YC CL, but my dates were sold out - hoping something will open up over the summer so I can switch.

Anyone know where I can find a map of the BC floor plan? I have one for the YC. I'd like to know where the CL-GV rooms are located and where the lounge is.

Is there a specific thread for BC-CL?

Thanks!

There are 9 BC CL GV rooms on the fifth floor. The lounge is right off the elevators.

Thank you for this!! There's one conference ending on the 7th. DH & I will be coming in on the 8th. I guess Disney's holding rooms past the conference date.(?)

It wouldn't break my heart to *have* to stay lagoon view ...BTW, I just booked it and so excited to be staying at the YC.

Appreciate the thoughts for MA...

DH had the day off work, but would've had to stay/return home had he not.

Kiddos still on school vaca...

TV News has been off all week, 10 & 6 yo still do not know.

Wondering what DD2's dance competition for tomorrow will be like, and if it will be held at all.

Feel like we are in a circus...this is insane!

Waiting for the cable guy...switching providers today of all days.

We had a wonderful GV room looing out to Volleyball grassy area. Full balcony, if we looked to the right off our balcony we could see the Boardwalk and lake.
At night we could see the higher Illuminations over roof. Short walk to lounge and elevators, it was just perfect. And the CL staff are wonderful.

They are urging people to stay in their homes in the area and public transit has been shut down for the time being. If any of our friends are in Watertown or close by, as dansdad said "Be Safe!"
Just crazy! Been watching CNN all morning. Glad you are all safe. So scary that these young men acted like normal people involved in their community/school. Yet lurking below the surface are cold blooded murderers.

We ate in the ball room. It was lovely. The west wing looked really neat too and was a bit less crowded. If you eat in the west wing make sure to check out the ripped picture of the prince. Every 7 or 8 minutes there is a thunderstorm and the picture transforms into a picture of the beast. The enchanted rose is very cool too.

Three people in our family had the ham and gruyere cheese sandwiches. Very large and very yummy! My son had the kids turkey sandwich and really liked it.

For dessert my dh and I had the chocolate cream puffs which were SO GOOD! And the kids both loved the triple chocolate cupcakes.

My biggest recommendation is to walk around the restaurant and check out all the little details. We were really impressed by everything!
