I think it was tower 3's pool that was under construction. They said for two weeks so it should be over soon then.

We're here now and so far we're loving it! We were able to check in at 9:30 this morning AND got a sweet view! Tower 4, 10th floor lake view. This resort is gorgeous! The only thing that bugs me is we keep getting told we need a parking pass. Even the lady at the gate said it :/

Bonnet creek was great. We stayed there June 8 thru the 15th in tower 6 and it was a beautiful resort. Would definitely go back there again!

Does $174 a night starting Oct. 5 sound like a fair price? That was a quote from Vacation Strategies.

That would be really high if you're talking about a two bedroom.

Did you request that tower or are they just putting people in random towers and rooms?

We have had great luck on eBay, 2 different sellers and as low as 65 a night for 2br. We had flexibility in dates though, not sure if you are fixed.

We just got a 3 br for 125 a night. I think the cheapest we have ever gotten a 3 br is 120 a night. Private seller on ebay. These were dates I absolutely needed, so I couldn't be too picky.

When we were there in May, I laughingly told the agent, that we would really love a room in the Main Building, Tower 5, or Tower 4, in that order. The agent laughed, said we were apparently easy to please and she'd see what she could do. She finally said she could not put us in the Main Building or Tower 5, but did find a room in Tower 4 and it was even facing the lake. This was about 11:30am and in order to improve our chances of getting the location we wanted (next to a lazy river), we told her we didn't care what floor.

Thanks! This will be our first stay coming late August. Not sure to roll the dice or ask nicely. Glad you got a good room and location.

Early arrival on 7/9/13 - can we check in and get room keys later?

We have a trip planned for 7/9 to 7/23 at BC in a 2-bedroom. It will be 4 adults and 2 kids. We have an early flight from New York and will be arriving at MCO at 12:18 pm as long as there are no delays.

Since none of us drive we plan on booking Mears at the airport to get us to BC. If we arrive at BC at 2:30 or something like that, will they let us check in and pick up room keys later? Do they have a place where we can leave our luggage and just walk around the grounds until check in time?

Thanks for any info.

You might be able to check-in if a room is ready, but if not they will store your luggage. We have packed a bag in the past with our swimsuits and stuff so we could swim. We've also packed our stuff so we could leave it with bell hops and went to the parks. They called us when the room was ready- they make it pretty easy.
