But ... we were just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Marketplace and the door leading to the outside and "secret" door to Epcot was right outside our room. I know you shouldn't request a specific room number when making reservations, but I certainly wouldn't mind this room in the future (hopefully there IS a future visit).

Weather predictions called for rain almost every day, but it never really happened. One afternoon was about it. The sunshine and warmth were perfect for this Wisconsinite!

Was surprised at the crowd levels given it should be a slower time of the year, but I don't think any time is all that slow any more.

If I can convince DH, we should be heading back in January with the whole family. Sadly that won't involve a stay at BC (likely POFQ), but for the chance to go to WDW, I'd gladly stay almost anywhere.
Thanks for letting us know that you had a great trip!

I'll add that to your listing on the BOG.

this past year we were down 5 times in eight months to visit our dd who was a cm on the college program.( just have to come down and watch your only child work in the mk.) we managed to use all of our 810 points available so we are going to be staying non dvc this trip.
my wife and I are celebrating our 30th anniversary on this trip and we are looking forward to it!!! (we were 19 when we got married )
I also made a resi for Victoria and alberts for us and my wife has no idea. SUPRISE!!!!
we always stay in a one bedroom and have our laundry in our room.since we wont have the machine in our room this trip the question I have is what type of payment do the machines take anymore?
over the last few years we have also stayed at the contemporary and the poly. at the times we stayed in each one, they both had a different method of payment. one still used quarters and in 2012 at the poly. there were no coin slots and had to swipe your room card. now, the room card is going by the way side so did they go back to coins or do the machines read your wrist bands? (life use to be simple )
any help would be great and thanks in advance!


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




Last I knew, the washers and dryers in the laundry room were coin operated, but I don't know if that has changed. Has anyone done laundry at the Y&B in the past month?

As others have mentioned, the Beach & Yacht Club rooms were last renovated in 2009. BC first, then YC.

I haven't seen widespread comments here on this thread about the condition of the rooms at either resort. Some of the hallways definitely need to be redone (BC CL floor, I'm looking at YOU!), but I have not witnessed or heard about the rooms being run-down.

Question BCV online check in options?

Hi all!

Does anyone know what the online check in options (buttons) are for Beach Club Villas? My only point of reference was CBR and they had options for upper or lower floor, corner room, etc...

Thank you!

This is what I have in the FAQ, but I'm not sure if this info is current

Beach Club Villa 60 Day Check In:

Room Request Options-Choose 2 out of the four listed:

Near Elevator
Lower Floor
Woods View
Larger Balcony*


Can anyone who has stayed recently chime in and let us know if these are still the options given.

* As far as I know, all of the rooms at BCV have full balconies. Are there some balconies larger than others at BCV?

Thanks natebenma! The fewer options that DH has to choose from, the better Life is!

You will have at least one balcony when staying at the BCV's. All of the BCV studios have balconies. All of the villas have a balcony off the livingroom. Most, but not all, of the master bedrooms have a balcony. Some of the balconies are bigger than others, depending on what floor you are on and location.

Here is a photo that I've copied from the photo thread and you can see the different size balconies and the master bedrooms that just have a window instead of a balcony.



By the way, this is the quiet pool at the villas which BC guests can use. When SAB is too crowded and noisy for us, we like to go over to this pool.

Great photo and information Wood Nymph! It's nice to know that even studios have balconies as that is the way we are leaning since it will be only DH & myself.

Thanks so much!

Here's another shot of the balconies at BCV's I made in 2013. First floor=patio. Second floor=large balcony all the way across. We were on the third floor. No balcony in bedrooms but a larger one in living room. And fourth floor=three small balconies each.

And guess what. This layout is not the same throughout. We were on the road side this year (Rm 352) and there different layouts on the other floors.

I doubt if the architect that designed this place had any idea how much trouble he/she was going to cause us…..

Pick me, pick me!!! It's seldom if ever I can offer any useful information because you are such an informational bunch, but this one I've got and it doesn't look like it's been answered yet!!! We stayed at the BC last week and YES, the washers and dryers were coin operated. $2 per load.

I feel you! The BEST time ever was when my two were little. I remember them sound asleep in their strollers while my DH and I had a beer at Rose & Crown while watching the Tapestry of Nations Parade go by November of 1999. I loved that parade!

My youngest DS was only 5 or 6 months old the first time we went to Disney. The older kids in our group were getting their pictures taken with Mickey and Friends and Goofy motioned for me to bring over the baby. He sat down on the ground and held him for a photo. It was awesome and you can see that my little guy absolutely LOVED it.



I'm more worried about going back this Summer with teenagers!

We were at BC last week. I remember seeing tea in the room, but not 100% certain what the "flavors" were. It wasn't a huge selection. Just a few tea bags in a basket. I don't remember seeing cups/lids in the room and I'll kick myself if they were there because I went to the Marketplace every morning to ask for a cup so I could fill it with hot water for DH's oatmeal. We were not on the dining plan so didn't have the refillable mugs. Every morning that I went to the Marketplace for a cup, it just so happened I bought something as well. Even still, I was a little nervous what would happen the first time I asked for a cup. On the last day, I didn't need to buy anything so I simply asked for the cup and I was told they aren't supposed to give out cups unless a purchase is made. She gave me the cup anyway, even after I said I don't have a problem buying something if that's the rule.
