I currently have booked the BC CL for our F&W trip end of September. I am wondering about the YC CL level and wondering which is the better of the two. There will be 4 adults no children for this trip. Thanks guys

I only did BC CL so I can't exactly compare, but we really enjoyed it. I'm told the food offerings are the same. I have heard complaints about the BC lounge being too crowded but we only experienced that happening once in the 8 days we were there. Finding a table was otherwise never an issue. The staff in the lounge were really great. At the concierge desk most were okay. Some friendlier and more helpful than others. Overall we really enjoyed it and if it was in our budget we'd definitely return.

My personal preference for BC over YC was the decor and it being closer to Epcot.

I like the decor and location better as well for Epcot. My concern was the lounge being crowded. Thanks for the info.

The YC's CL Lounge has a better layout than the BC. The BC's CL lounge has only one way in/out whereas the YC has two. I found the BC's food area can get rather congested because of it.

I've stayed at both. The food and drinks are the same. Both lounges are on the small side, but in my experience the one at the YC is easier to get a table at, plus it was much quieter (I think there are just fewer kids at the YC, for whatever reason).

I have also stayed at both. I much prefer the club room at YC. I also like the fact that YC rooms all have balconies. I have had 2 BC CL rooms that were not full balconies. And I definitely had more than one night where getting seating at the BC club room was an issue. I prefer not to have to carry my tiny little plate all the way back to my room in order to have seating.

We absolutely LOVED the BCR CL. We had such a great time and loved the resort. Haven't stayed at YC but I can't imagine being disappointed by BCR.

As others have said the setup of the YC CL is probably better, but its not a huge difference as the food is exactly the same and I even think the staff covers both resorts.

Unless you are planning on moving into the CL at either resort and spending all your time there, you aren't going to really notice a huge difference. I would base your decision on which rooms/resort seems more your taste in decor and the guaranteed balconies at YC vs. request only balconies at BC issue.
