Thanks for this great thread! It is hard to find info on the Deluxe rooms.

I am trying to decide which room to request for our March stay. 4557 seems to be the best option as we would like a full balcony. Am I correct? Does anyone have photos of that room?

According to the room number map for BC. There looks like an elevator right near the X557 deluxe rooms. Is that accurate? Will it take you to the 5th floor?

thanks

As far as I know, there is only one bank of elevators and you access the 5th floor by putting your room key in a slot in the elevator.

No, that part of the resort only has 4 floors. You have to walk through the winding halls out to the lobby elevator, then take that up to the 5th floor. That was the only downside to the Deluxe room in that area! You can use that elevator right by the rooms to get down to the pool.

Sorry and thanks Tara for correcting my bum answer. I only knew of the one elevator bank off the lobby.

You weren't wrong...there IS only one bank that goes to all floors! The 2nd bank is just for the area over by the quiet pool between floors 1-4. And for the record it was out of service most of our trip - we ended up taking the stairs to go down to the pool! (No the stairs also do not go to floor 5).

We have stayed in a few of the deluxe rooms.
4557 and 3691 are the ones with the HUGE balconies and prob. the best deluxe rooms. Inside, the rooms are the same. HUGE !!!
3691 has the huge balcony plus the little juiet balcony that looks over the slide /wirlpool part of SAB and towards the lake. It is directly above Cape May Cafe. The room never smelled fishy, but the hallways going towards the room in the afternoon ALWAYS did. The huge balcony over looks the center courtyard, that can be busy most of the time. Its great if you like to "people" watch, lol. Its closer to the center of the resort.
4557 has the huge balcony but no view at all toward the lake. The balcony is the same size as 3691 but faces the quiet pool, and you can see some of the high Epcot fireworks. I think if I remember a bit longer walk to the CL lounge. The balcony is a little more relaxing than 3691 because you dont have tons of people right outside walking aound.
1557 has a Huge patio but no balcony as its ground level. It faces the quiet pool. Very nice if you like a patio vs a balcony. The view is pretty low, ground level, and just a hop over to the quiet pool and hot tub. The quiet pool is VERY quiet and hardly used, as is the kind of hidden, hot tub. Everyone ignores the quiet pool because of SAB.
2557 has the huge balcony, but the juliet balconys of 3557 are directly over it and it lacks privacy.
3557 and 4691 are the worst as far as balconys go if you like that sort of thing, but the rooms themselfs are the same as the other deluxes and are HUGE.

Thats it, and they are prob in order of preference and requesting.
The only ones I really wouldnt enjoy as much are 3557 and 4691, but we are balcony people, lol. We spend a lot of time on the balconies, and like hanging our wet bathing suits on the chairs.

NOW if they would only offer these deluxe rooms WITHOUT the CL, it would be great to save a few $$$. While we LOVE the deluxe rooms, we dont so much love the CL at Beach Club, lol.

BTW, 3691 is now our favorite, with 4557 a very close second !

Thank you bunches for this info!!! Have you made specific room requests before? I have to say, those are the exact 2 that I wanted. I have to say I am not psyched about the CL but want it for the 5 of us for quick breakfasts, drinks and beer/wine in the evening. Have you done other club levels? We only have done Poly and BWI. We love the Poly, BWI was OK. Was there anything specific you didn't like about it?

Yes, we have made specific room requests, and we never got them. There are only 6 deluxe rooms in all of BC, so its prob pretty hard to get a specific room request.
You may be better requesting a full balcony, then you will prob get one of the better deluxe rooms.
Note that the interior of all the deluxe rooms are the same from what we have seen ......the differences are the balconies.
We have stayed CL level at the Poly (our favorite !), Animal Kingdom Lodge, Grand Floridian, Beach Club (our least favorite) and Royal Pacific (Universal).
Beach Club lounge is to small for the amount of rooms (same could be said for Grand Flo, but not as bad) and the food offerings are very basic, not many options, just bland !. NO VIEW what so ever. Did I say how small the lounge was , lol.
Poly and Grand Flo had the best food options with the edge going to GF. Poly has the BEST view and BEST lounge PERIOD !!! AK food was just a little to strange for us.
BTW the staff at BC CL was great.

BTW, not sure when you are going but the BC CL lounge is rumored to get a refurb (CL staff told us). Tempoarily it will be in the Presidential suite (from what the CL staff said)WHen the refurb is done, it will occupy the CL lounge where it is NOW, and the room directly next to it.

I think the refurb is taking place after our May trip. I am terribly bummed about the state of the Poly because that is where I wanted to return with all 3 of my kids. It's been since 2009 that we were there. . Good advice about the request. That is what I will do.

Thanks again for all your help.
