Just one more question (at least for now). Should the rooms at Club Level at YC and BC be listed as Water View Club Level, Water or Pool View Club Level or Lagoon View Club Level? They are listed as Water or Pool View for the regular rooms.

Since the resort is going through all of the trouble of reclassifying , I would like to make sure I get the listings as accurate as possible.

And thanks to everyone for your pictures and feedback. I really had a great starting point with all of the information and links on the previous thread, but I am so glad to see pictures again!
Dee you are really good at this. I love that you are making sure everything is as accurate as can be. Thanks again for all your hard work!

natebenma- thanks for all your work in starting the new thread. This thread has helped me so much to plan my vaca. We are staying BC/CL for the first time in one week!! We can't wait I am totally hooked on this resort already (not even there yet) and might not want to stay anywhere else again.

Can anybody tell me how many miles the loop from BC past swan/ dolphin and boardwalk. I would like to run every morning and was hoping to jog about 3 miles. I say this now with good intentions but we'll see if I actually get a chance to do it.

I think it is 0.8 miles. There is a map of several jogging paths in the BC/YC area, with distances. I'm sorry, as I don't have it. Perhaps somebody else does. If all else fails, PM Robo, as he's got maps of everything.

BC in order of pricing (lowest to highest):
Standard View
Garden View
Water or Pool View
Standard View Club Level
Garden View Club Level
Deluxe Room Club Level (not on 5th floor)
Lagoon View Club Level
1 Bedroom Suite Club Level (not on 5th floor)
2 Bedroom Suite Club Level (not on 5th floor)
Vice Presidential Suite - Club Level
Presidential Suite - Club Level

I'm not sure of the exact wording for the new categories at the YC. I can't get them to pull up on the website either. However, I believe they will be:

Standard View
Garden View
Water or Pool View
Standard View Club Level
Garden View Club Level
Deluxe Room Club Level
Lagoon View Club Level
Various 2 Bedroom Suite Club Level (some plain two bedroom suites and some turret suites, and an Admiral Suite and a Captain's Deck Suite)
Vice Presidential Suite - Club Level
Presidential Suite - Club Level
I'm not sure of the maximum number of guests in these rooms ... it's the dark side and I try to stay over on the light side as much as possible.

Has anyone been to the BCV over Christmas? If so, do you mind sharing your dining plans that you had the day or two before and day of? And any suggestions?

We have Flying Fish, Le Cellier, and Narcosse's as it is now for the 23-25. The first two are for all of us, but the Narcossee one is on Christmas day evening for just my hubby and me. We originally were thinking that we'd book the kids in the Sandcastle Club and head over to Narcossee for Surf and Turf. We've never been there - had reservations on the day of our 10th anniversary last Thanksgiving, but were too pooped from the week preceding at the parks to go, so we put the kids in the kids' club at WLV where we were and ordered room service in our villa as our treat, lol.

I *really* want to try Narcossee, but I worry about being pooped again on Christmas evening as it's towards the end of our trip, plus I kinda wonder about how crazy crowded transportation and everything will be that day. I'm kinda wondering if we should just do Flying Fish (or Cape May, which we have scheduled earlier that week) on Christmas and move Narcossee up a few days...

sorry thinking outloud, but would love to hear if anyone has been over Christmas and what your dining plans were...

thank you!!!!!

Quiet Pool(s) Question/ Hot Tub location

I don't know much about the Quiet Pools. Is there one QP, 2 (Yacht and Beach) or 3 (one at the Villas too)?

I believe they are open 24 hours a day.

Lifeguard at any time?

Anything else I should know about them?

Are there Hot Tubs anywhere in either SAB or the Quiet Pools? Where?

Thanks!!!

Same resort, same management, same everything except the decor. SAB might be a few steps closer to YC. BC is a few steps closer to IG. BC has Marketplace. YC saves a few steps to the shuttle boat. Really gets down to being in the BC which might be a little lighter and a little noisier or the "dark side" with a little more quiet. Oh, by the way, with the BC you have a 50/50 shot at a full balcony while the YC you are almost certain to get one if that is important to you.

Not sure where you are going with this question, but both sides have been fully renovated within the last two years (started in late 2008, ended in mid-2009). The BC lobby just got some new furniture within the last week.

Dee, you are really into this upgrade of the board. You are doing a great job. I see two quiet pools on the site map I have, one for YC one for BC. Both open 24/7 from what I remember. No lifeguards with the quiet pools. Not sure about the hot tubs at these but you do have the ones at SAB over by the ping pong tables.

Problem with fire alarms is that they are too often ignored because they are too often false alarms. Happens all the time with the system at the office. Happens to me at hotels where guests have had one too many and trip an alarm on purpose at 2 in the morning.

Glad to hear that dinner went well. How's the DIS meets going? I'm betting they are keeping you busy.

I think there is one at BC villas too. There are 2 hot tubs up in the "rocks" by the walkway near the buildings. i may have pictures i can dig up...

We've been at WDW over Christmas including one trip that started at BCV, then GF and finished back at BCV. I would skip traveling to Narcoossee's on Christmas Day unless you will have a car. Even then, it could be a pain. Flying Fish is a great alternative. We loved doing the Candlelight Processional on Christmas Day. We did the dining package which allows you to enter the pavilion ahead of those without tickets. Wonderful experience. BTW, Narcoossee's usually has a special menu with "special" pricing on Christmas Day.

Dee, you are doing a fantastic job. BCV does have a "quiet" pool as well as a whirlpool. SAB has whirlpools as well and I'm pretty certain both the YC and BC quiet pools do as well. Someone else can confirm that.

No lifeguards ever at the quiet pools.

BCV does have posted hours. Never noticed them until Sammie mentioned it on the DIS one time. I think it's 7aam-11pm but don't remember for certain.

Thanks Katesdad and everyone for the encouraging feedback! I'm sure this will come as a shock, but I am a bit of a perfectionist
I also love to edit in my spare time! A little sick, I know.

I just noticed this description of the Yacht Club this morning. I didn't write it. An attempt to combat the "dark side" reputation?

Classic surroundings capture the essence of a New England yacht club at this upscale resort. Its comfy chairs, hardwood floors and shafts of sunlight streaming into a welcoming lobby invite you to linger.
