TaraPA- We have stayed on both floors. If you don't mind taking the stairs up to the lounge, then I would stick with the larger balcony on the 3rd floor. We have been lucky enough to have a larger balcony on the 4th floor at times overlooking the BWI. Like you said, it will be hot.

TaraPA, I, too, have stayed on both floors. I do enjoy the large balcony, have done this only on our girls trips. When my husband and I go we stay on the 4th floor as there is plenty of room for the two of us. It is hot in August and not sure how much time you would want to sit out there, though in the late evening it may not be as bad. Whatever floor you choose you will have a fantastic time!!!

Tara PA- While I can't say I've stayed specifically in a deluxe room, I've had plenty of CL rooms, most with balconies. I suppose it depends where you think you will spend more time.

We spend far more time using the lounge than the balcony. The lounge is our extended family 'meet up place.' It is also nice if both your room and the lounge are on the key access only floor. At BWI - again I'm not familiar with exactly where all the deluxe rooms are located- but I know the cottages are long ways from the lounge. Ugh! While exercise is one of the things I love about WDW, excess walking down long corridors is not one of the highlights. I mostly use the balcony as a place to sip coffee or snack, but it's not worth a long hike.

Which bring me round to summer...the thing about FL summers is this: It gets hot and humid, but then it rains. Hard. Sometimes minutes, sometimes hours. Post-rain temps are MUCH better. After the sunset, temps are much better. They are great hours for park touring. Avoid the worst!!!!!- 2pm to 5:30pm....coincidentally, that's also thunderstorm o'clock, and appetizer hour! If it's not raining, 2-4pm is good pool time.

I think they are pretty much equal. Some people say BC is less "stuffy" than the YC, but its still Disney and the YC is extremely kid friendly. YC has guaranteed balconies and a better lounge layout. BC has Cape May and the kids club shared by the resorts (also the QS place at the resorts), but its not like those (except the QS) are super far from YC (and if u are staying CL, u probably won't need the QS place. BC is closer to EPCOT by walking and YC is closer to the boat dock. I personally like the YC slightly better because of the nicer lounge/balconies, but I would probably base this on which room decor you like better since they are so similar...

I agree with the PP. I've stayed CL at both and felt that they were very similar. If a balcony is really important to you, though, stay at the YC (although I believe that the LV CL rooms at the BC all have balconies -- you can check with Teena on the BC/YC board for more info on that -- she helped me a while back). I personally prefer the YC since it's quieter over there IMO. But I'd be happy at either one (and if one has a discount and the other one doesn't I just go by the price).

So excited we just changed our reservation from YC Standard room to BC GV CL!! Leaving in 2 days. May 15-18. So here's my question. We will probably be gettin to the BC around 10:30 do u think the lounge will still have breakfast out or should we grab breakfast instead at the airport?

I think most CLs have breakfast food out until 10:30, so I'd recommend grabbing something at the airport.

If getting 'breakfast food' specifically is very important to you, then maybe grab it at the airport. Otherwise, I say wing it. If the lounge is not open when you arrive, it will re-open with cookies and such at 11:30. You probably can also get drinks and a bit of fruit upon arrival (orange, apple, banana). You could always ask the CM's if they'd be willing to grab a banana for you.

All that said....I find it always takes me longer that I expect to get from the airport to WDW. You don't say what time you plane lands, but I can say, often enough it's taken me a solid two hours past my scheduled plane landing to get to my WDW hotel.

As others have said, they are very similar in many ways- like the shared pool. Disney effectively considers them one resort- as in they share a central kitchen (at least in terms of room service), mostly the same staff, and the main pool.

The differences/important points I see: YC is a bit quieter, room décor (BC is more floral, YC is less frilly), similar room layout, YC is more toward the Dolphin/HS, BC is slightly more towards Epcot. Rooms are the same price-unless you want a certain view that's not available. I find the staff at BC CL to be slightly more friendly, but both are excellent. Both have kids, but I would say BC is slightly more kid oriented, and YC is slightly more adult. I think it's that the theming of BC is a bit more whimsical.

Thanks so much! Our plane lands at 8:45am. I don't care much about breakfast but I know my girls will be hungry. Do u know if there isn't food in the lounge will there still be bagels & fruit in the hotel marketplace?
