Thanks for your input . I noticed that as well that the BC deluxe rooms are quite a bit less than the YC deluxe rooms ($69/nt less), which doesn't make sense to me since all of the other room types (standard through GV CL) are the same rate at both resorts. Maybe the deluxe rooms are bigger and the views better at the YC, therefore, making those deluxe rooms more expensive . We've stayed at the BC before and were wanting to try the YC, but I may research the BC deluxe rooms a little more and see how badly I want that larger room and possibly change to the BC. The YC Dlx CL would be $131/nt more than my GV CL, with a BC Dlx CL being only $62 more, which is quite a big difference for pretty much the same room (unless there's more to the YC deluxe than what I'm finding).

You hit the nail on the head!
I remember the first time I posted here, Everyone was so helpful and kind. It makes you want to be just as helpful and kind to others.
Have a great day!

I feel so lost and out of touch. Between teaching and coaching I am barely able to steal a glance at the Dis. Told DH I am taking some time this afternoon to catch up Things gave been so busy that I just realized I only have like 45 days until our arrival at BC for F&W

Hope to be able to catch up and stay somewhat in the loop before our trip. Can not wait for this trip to come. It is our 1st F&W and I am beyond excited.

Thank you! I'm having a hard time deciding what to do, and our trip is less than 3 weeks away. I have changed my reservation several times since AP rates came out.

Wedding changes.... DD is now getting married April 12, 2013 in Texas! Disneymoon has now turned into a Universalmoon and Disneymoon!! More to plan for me!!! I've never done Universal... FDSIL is a BIG Harry Potter fan, so I figured why not have 2 days at Universal before heading over to Disney! So now they have 1 night at the MCO Hyatt, 2 nights at Royal Pacific followed by 7 nights at AKL 1 bedroom CL! Glad all these changes happened before I booked all the tours and the dinning!!

Almost time to make the dinning/ tours reservations!!!

so we check in in a week and I was sadly reminded of the solarim by looking at the photos on page 1. I cant believe they did this to the solarium.
If I had known ahead of time I would have switched our room to the yacht club. Call me crazy but the solarium is a daily stay for an hour or two for us with our books to unwind. we even love this room so much that our home is to have a similar type of theme, obviously not this big but we are doing it at some point, colors and all.

Aren't there rooms or areas just a short walk away in the Beach Club Villas section of the resort where you can hang out and relax? I seem to remember reading that the villas had a room something like the solarium. Can anybody else, namely the BC "Villains", chime in?

Don't lose faith in the resort. I'm sure that everybody that contributes to this thread will help you find a nook or a cranny that you will enjoy snuggling in with a book and a tasty beverage!

Here now first stay!

We checked in and other than not being able to upgrade room views (still not sure why - can they really be sold out?) it is great! We have a balcony oh the roof section but can see swan dolphin behind. We have a daybed which is a bonus! We ate lunch at the marketplace and the food was surprisingly very good. I got the quinoa veggie wrap and my dh got the roast beef and dd got clam chowder. We had to take the bus to DTD (took us 20 min total to get there only waited 5 min for the bus though...) Any questions I can try to answer while I am here? These boards have been so helpful planning for us!

you mean the breezway room for kids? I suppose but its so dark in that room and wont be so quiet if there are kids actually in there, which is rare.
THey should've moved the gym to that room instead of the solarium.
I know things need to be rehabbed but for the last like 4 years its always something, it better be a long time after this before a rehab happens...
after this gym i swear they have rehabbed the whole resort from head to toe.

I echo what NM said. The main contributors inspire us all to continue to support this thread and share our wisdom.

This thread has the best people on it. For the first time ever, I can say I have found friends via the internet, and those friends come from this thread. It all stems from the attitude that the previous poster identified - the willingness to answer every question with information and support.

Sounds like an amazing way for them to begin their life together, surrounded by fun, inspired by the support of their family.

I'm putting you on my list of people I hope will adopt me one day.

That does sound like an awesome trip!!! I am by no means a Universal expert, but I will send you my list of Top Ten Things that I wrote for my trip report after my trip to the Dark Side.

Hoping it will be available in October when we are at BCV. Thanks so much for all of your wonderful information.

Not sure. Someone posted the menu about a week ago I think.

I asked one of the F&B managers today if the egg platter in the Marketplace is planning on staying around and he says it is ... it is a huge hit.

Teena, great to hear! We're ready to give it a try in just a few weeks! (And if we miss the croissant sandwich, we can always order a croissant and put the eggs from the platter in it!) How did it go at BC today - are you feeling OK?

Nanette, so exciting!
