I know just what you mean. We always get the "you're going AGAIN?" look from family when we talk about another trip. Some people just don't get it . I always feel like I'm in another world when I'm at Disney and no matter how much time we spend there, it never seems like it's enough. Our oldest started college this fall and our youngest will graduate high school in June so I know it won't be long before it's just DH and I so I'm trying to get as much family trip time in as I can. The Dis keeps me going too and doing homework on resorts or just reading different threads makes the trip seem close, even though mine is 9 months away .

I go twice a year and hate that Are you going AGAIN look! I go with my adult daughter. DH doesn't get wdw so he doesn't go. Most of my friends just don't get it either.

Room 4622 - it had a daybed but the balcony was somewhat noisy as to the left was vallet parking / entrance. Main view was of BCV entrance - Ariel's fountain. This room was also very close to the elevator so there was foot traffic.

Daybed is auto with family of 5

Looking forward to our first stay at the BC and see if the pool holds up to all we have heard about. We are spoiled since our last four trips were at the Poly, but we are looking forward to something new.

Packing extra mugs for a Grand Marnier walk!
We usually stay at the Poly too and have it booked for our Jan. trip. My DH wants to try something new so I'm trying to talk myself into changing to the YC or BC CL.

This would be a sneaky way for hubby and I to split up from our teen boys, send them off to some counter service burger bodega while we indulge in all the wonderous goodies that they don't have the palate to appreciate!

Now I'm going to see if there is a way to figure out which resorts have this bar option. I'm figuring all the deluxe's and any of the parks where liquor is served in a restaurant that has a Bar, like 50's Prime Time. We may be resort visiting for the December trip so I will try to look this up and keep it on my trip -'spontaneous planning' radar.

Thanks!!

You'll have to report back on your findings!

While not a bar, if your in the AK area, the CS in AKL has some amazing dinner specials that change nightly. I suspect they may be brought down from Boma or Jiko. We had dinner there several nights before we moved to CL and they were every bit as good as a TS dinner.

Having a party of 5 does not necessarily guarantee you a room with a daybed. We learned this the hard way last summer. Our room had a rollaway sent in. We could have switched to another room with a daybed the following day, but my family decided against it. We loved our room location and patio and didn't want the hassle of moving rooms.

You are correct. Parties of 5 have priority for rooms with daybeds, but if there are none available when you are checking in to your room, then a rollaway will be provided.

As catho72 says, you will probably be given the option (or you can request) to be moved when a room with a daybed becomes available.

Just back from a magical vacation! We stayed at BCV and the villa was perfect and very comfortable with lots of room. We arrived just before noon and the room was ready
Storm along bay was gorgeous. We had no problems finding chairs at various times of day.
Our favorite dinner was at Boma.....so good and I recommend trying if you haven't had the chance.
We were so happy to meet Teena in the lobby and my kids traded pins with her.
We used Martha's Vineyard for QS a few times and it was very good. Didn't care for the breakfast at the marketplace, but the sandwiches for lunch are yummy.
The parks weren't too crowded. My daughter had a BBB makeover and loved it!

Hello! We will be at BC in December. I was wondering if anyone had experience renting one of the boats from the YC marina. We were thinking about it since our sons love boats. It would be the four of us:me,DH,DS3 and DS5. Thanks!
