I can't remember the thread title, but it was someone asking about whether or not all rooms at the YC had balconies. I think it's strange that all rooms at the YC (except that one ) have full balconies, but not all rooms at the BC do . I don't care for the Juliet balconies at the BC as they aren't really usable, IMO.

I can't compare the 2 lounges as we haven't stayed YC CL, but I thought the SL lounge was very small. Also, it's not really a "lounge" per se (at least not to me) as it's located right inside the lobby of the SL building with no views. The lounge always seemed chaotic during our stay (which was during a slower time in January) and there never seemed to be enough seating to accommodate the number of people staying there. This, of course, is just my opinion as I know others love SL, but it just wasn't for me.

I don't know if I asked you this, but how did the size of SL compare to the WL lounge?

As you can tell, I am very much struggling with what monorail resort CL to go with next... poly would be #1 choice if not for DVC construction

The WL lounge is much larger and more spacious than SL, IMO. I think the SL lounge is very small and I didn't like it. I LOVE the WL lounge in that the seating is arranged around the railing overlooking the lobby, which to me, makes the lounge spacious with a lot of seats . If I had to choose between WL CL and GF SL, I'd choose WL CL every time.

If I were you, I'd wait to see how the DVC plans proceed before making a final decision about the Poly. I haven't been following the rumors about it too closely, but it sounds like DVC will be over by the luau, which is quite a ways away from the Hawaii building and probably wouldn't intrude on your stay that much .

That I agree with. But, if the work on the GCH begins as well, and if the pool is still closed....deal breakers.....there are just too many unknowns....and in a couple of weeks I will need to book a resort that I am happy with in order to secure my 40% off...so I can't in good conscience book the Poly with so many unknowns, KWIM?

If its meant to be as I get closer to my trip then there will be minimal to no construction and still rooms available at the Poly under the discount....and I would switch at that point.

Petty, I know but it is what it is I don't pay for lagoon or pool views but GV is usually only a few dollars more and is worth it. Anyone stay standard view YC CL and not disappointed??
I've stayed YC CL standard view a couple of times, it is just fine The rooms look over the front of the resort and many offer a distant view of Wishes!

I feel the same way. The DVC construction wouldn't bother me one bit (regardless of where it was going on at the resort), but if the GCH and/or pool was closed for refurb, that would be a deal breaker for us as well. We love everything about the Poly and while I could handle some building going on, I wouldn't be able to handle not being able to go into the GCH or swim in the volcano pool. I would book your second choice and keep watching the progress on the construction .

I have to agree with you here. I really don't see the rush to make a decision. I think anybody that really wants to stay at the Poly should wait and see how things play out.

That is crazy!!! Makes me feel better about what I am paying now. Lol. :-)

Our view was of the front of resort. It was actually a really nice view. I thought we might have been upgraded to a GV, but as pp stated the SV's are of the front of the building. At BC the SV was a roof view. I'm not sure I would book a sv at BC again, but I would not hesitate at the YC.

I think the SL lounge is slightly larger, than the one at the YC. There is (maybe) one or two more tables, so not that much larger. The kid's area is not in the SL lounge, but in the large hallway leading out to the marina side of the building. I think the SL food service area is also slightly larger.

Hope that's what you were asking about.

Thanks so everyone who responded about SV YC CL

For those who have stayed at WL CL and YC CL, which do you prefer? We stayed WL CL many years ago and loved it. Never stayed YC CL though. DH wants to try it and I do too, but there seem to be mixed reviews about the CL. The location, however, can't be beat. Just looking for some opinions. The AP rate at WL CL for our dates is $295/night (plus tax) so it's a great deal. Thanks!

WL CL by a longggggg shot!!!!

IMHO, WL CL has
-friendlier CL CM's
-bigger lounge
-better food choices
-awesome views available (we had a view of the Castle and could see Wishes at night)

I would never dream of booking WL without CL again, it was that good.

I would stay at YC again, but have no problems not doing CL...that part was lacking.
