Thanks again!
I will say the Yacht Club quiet pool was always empty!! One day I chose to go to that pool and it was a completely relaxing afternoon. I had a cocktail, laid by the pool, a great getaway from the crowds.

I live in Chicago, near downtown!

I am in the south suburbs of Chicago. This weather is crazy. Softball cancelled once again. How can we go from needing the air on and the heat in the same week?

Right! Softball cancelled x2 this week for us, too. It's absolutely nuts here! Seems like any warm-ish weather we've been blessed with was accompanied by Severe Thunderstorms or constant drizzle... After this last winter DH and I are discussing leaving this climate when the kids go off to college. Can't take this cold much longer!

Hope it all works out for you.
We already ordered our magic bands for the GV room, which is where we will be sleeping. Since we are paying for 2 rooms, and do not go over the occupancy of that CL room, we want to utilize the amenities of being CL (lounge). My children (one special needs, one young) will not be going to the CL without me. So unless we ALL have to scan our MB's in the elevator or at the lounge door (which I'm now thinking we don't), then I think my one MB for the CL room (that I won't be sleeping in) will suffice. I'm sure it will work out, it's just a logistics thing I was curious about. We can't be the only family that has ever booked 2 rooms at a resort and needed access to both rooms. In fact, I know we aren't. Just wasn't sure how the key situation worked or the lounge.

Anyone currently at Y&BC or BCV- i am leaving tomorrow and have some groceries left over. Free for the taking: bottled waters, 1 gallon un-opened organic whole milk, dozen eggs and frozen breakfast sausage. I feel bad throwing it out. I'll be here until 11am at the villas. Please pm me if anyone is interested.

Sadly, I've had to cancel my upcoming birthday trip to WDW. natebenma, please remove me from the October 2013 YC list.

However, I'm already planning my birthday trip for next year, and it's my 40th, so I'll be going all out and hope to stay at YC or BC!

I had a horrible cold when I was in WDW about 7 weeks ago, but I was able to walk around BC and YC for the first time ever and even made a visit to Beaches & Cream! I LOVED the resorts, and I can't wait to stay there!

Hi - we have a RO for 2 nights at BC then on day 3 are moving to caribbean beach with FD. No tickets for our BC stay but does anyone know if I have to physically go to CBR on day 3 to activate my tickets and magic bands or can they do that for me at the BC?

In two weeks we will be at the Yacht Club, and this is our very first time staying there as a family. We're really excited.

I have a couple questions I'm hoping you all might be able to answer...

What time do the buses/boats start running in the morning?

1 hour before park opening.

Hi! We check into YC June 19th for our first stay there and I'm so excited! I've heard that nearly all YC rooms have a balcony. Does that mean I don't need to request one, or is there still a small chance I won't have a balcony? A balcony is very important to me because I wake up before the rest of my family and since we'll all be staying in one rom, I want to have somewhere to sit and relax without disturbing them. We have a GV room. Thanks in advance!

There is a 99% chance that you will have a balcony since I think there is only one room that doesn't have one.
