Garden View wasn't available when we booked, and we didn't want to pay the premium for the water view, so we really felt like we had comprimised with our standard view booking, but in the end we loved our view.

It was a beautiful view and we would willingly book standard view again.

We are going with friends and once they book, we will stick with whatever location they book their room. Would love to show them our favorite BCV. No matter what though, we'll be there to visit, as my husband's favorite dining location is Cape May Cafe. I sure hope this time we can finally meet Teena too.

As we get closer, I'll be looking for some advice on touring with friends.
Hoping your waitlist comes through!!!

My MIL has been with us on our last 2 trips but we have always stayed at values so she will LOVE LOVE this trip!!!

I know its along time away, but half the fun is planning and it wil help me with the "DISNEY WITHDRAWALS" (we were there 4/27 - 5-8).

Can anyone tell me if there is an APP that I can add to my Verizon phone that gives the wait times for the rides at the parks?


You are our second addition for 2013.

There was another poster earlier this week for 2013, so I will have to go back to the old thread and get the info.

Jacking your question- has anyone used a lines/waittime APP for a Windows 7 phone?

But now he has a new job and not as many vacation days so I talked him into BC for next year. I'm so excited! I know my kids are going to love it too. I just wish we could do it this year but we leave in less than a week and I'm not changing anything at this point.

So now I need to go back and re-read everything and absorb as much information as I can. And I only have a year to do it.




Yes, please join us!

Do you have anything booked, or are you still in the planning stages?

I was able to get a "standard view club level", but was wondering if splurging for the "lagoon view" would be worth it? At Boardwalk we had a view of the quiet pool/gardens which was lovely...Does anyone know much about the standard view for club level at yacht club?

Also, I thought I heard something about stormalong bay being renovated? Is that complete, or will it still be going on in Sept? thank you!




Major renovation at Stormalong Bay is done. Unless something unexpected comes up, I don't anticipate additional work on SAB until the winter when normal rehab work happens.

Personally, I always book standard view. I appreciate a nice view, but at Disney it is not really worth it to me to spend a lot of extra money for view when we consider the amount of time we spend in the room.

I think a lot of the YC CL SV rooms will look out onto the front entrance/parking lot of the resort. From some of the rooms, you may be able to see some of the Illuminations fireworks or even the MK fireworks show. See Janetmom's TR- she had a room where she could see them. We also had a room at the BC (CL SV) with fireworks views.

I am impressed with what I have read so far. We plan on staying three nights and may only do one park day. Do you regulars feel there is enough to keep two 8 yr. olds occupied at the resort?


What time of year? If your kids swim, then Stormalong Bay will definitely keep them busy for awhile. There is a nightly campfire/movie on the beach. There are a few spots at the BC where you can watch some of the fireworks from Illuminations without entering EPCOT. You could also walk over to the Boardwalk in the evenings to enjoy the entertainment.

Like all of the resorts, there is an arcade available.

Hi My girls played AAU BB and some of their national tournaments were played at the sports complex at Disney!!! But I'm not sure about the boys. I believe if its still the same (as it has been quite a few years now) that if you go to the AAU website it will list where the national tournaments are being held for each age group!

I just wanted to clarify my last post about changing resorts (from YC to BC) for the view. What I meant to say is that if you have chosen BC, then view alone wouldn't change my mind. If BC and YC were equally fine for you, then of course pick the room with the better view. We ate at Captains Grille a couple of times and went through the YC lobby a few times and thought the staff was lovely and the resort was gorgeous.

Reading it back it sounded like a YC slam - not intended!

I am still recovering from our school's gala last night. Did NOTHING today. After the gala, a bunch of us went to karaoke. Belted out Etta James' "At Last" and I can't talk today!! a relief for DH I'm sure. LOL Work should be interesting tomorrow.

Wow! A few days away from the Dis boards and I am waaayyyy behind!! I missed the last few pages of the previous thread and this one is already up to 8 pages!!

Thank you Dee for making the thread move painless for those of us new around here!

Nannette: your plans for your DD's Disneymoon sound amazing!! It will be a time in her life she will never forget thanks to the great gift you are giving her!!

We are approaching the 2 month mark until our return to BC! I look forward to every trip to Disney but for some reason this year I seem to be looking forward to it even more than usual.

I am thinking I may want to request a room with a full balcony this year. We had a Juliet one last year and my DH and I would love to be able to have one we could sit out on with a cocktail (or two). Should I call to add this request or would I be okay to add the request during my online check in? And if I do call to make the request, would I be better to do online check in or would my chances of getting the balcony be better if I waited to check in? TIA for any recommendations!!

Well we got beat out in the game tonight. We wanted top 8 which we got and we wanted to get noticed which we did, so now we wait to see what we got rank wise (we beat 16 ranked but lost to 21).

We'll leave for home tomorrow. NOLA was nice and the beniegts and coffee at Cafe du Monde beat the ones at POFQ all to heck, but I think I prefer WDW. The wrought iron in the French Quarter made me think of the theming at POFQ, only without the drunk tourists, and all those bridges,hills, and swamps are no substitute for Soarin. And no matter how cool a drive on ferry is to a Midwest girl, I think a friendship boat heading to Norway is a much better use of a boat. Plus the pictures of BCV's alligator is as close as I got to a gator sighting. However I have had a great time and I'm only about 5 months away from my real vacation to WDW.

I think we clearly need a flame war! Yacht Club versus Beach Club. Ok so, a place called the "Yacht Club" sounds so much fancier than a place called the Beach Club. I mean, it isn't even a real beach. It's made up.

Alright, so my hearts not in this. But... Go Yacht Club!

On board the new thread and Less than 90 days to go til my 40th bday trip at the BC.

Reading through some other threads on the resorts board, I came across the one about turndown service. It sounds like we could use this since going in August we usually shower in the Am then again before dinner, and it was mentioned in the other thread that replenishing towels is part of the service. So is this a service I can request, in a Standard view room, not CL? Also regarding the timing....when do they usually do the turndown service?

Thanks!
