So...I don't think online check in makes much of a difference. There weren't any lines to check in and we arrived about noon.
Have a great trip!
Thanks!! Just what I was looking for - that's very helpful!
Those were my requests too...though I put NONpool view, close to lobby, but we'll see what happens. I think I'll skip online checkin and hope for the best.
how was your ME line? TIA!!

I thought all YC rooms have full balconies .

It wasn't bad at all. It was a full bus but we got right on the one that pulled up as we got in line.
I miss it and wish we were still there! It was our first time in a villa and was by far our best trip to Disney! The extra space makes a huge difference when traveling with kids.

Not all YC have full balcony. Some have shared large deck/balcony area with more than one room.

Seems like we had discussion/pictures of the YC room with a small balcony. It was one or two rooms out of 630 in the whole resort. Just enough to keep you from saying that all rooms have large balconies.

Not all BC rooms have balconies (Juliette or otherwise). Our room this past May didn't have either type of balcony. Our window was directly over a flat roof near the DME loading area.

We were quite dissapointed as I thought they all had some type of balcony.

Thankfully, my eye doctor is practically across the street from my office and they had one they could give me to get through the day without going blind.

3 days from right now, we'll be landing at MCO!
This made me laugh!
Have a wonderful vacation!

We had the exact same request last December and got the same location as you. We also liked the room.

No, I'm pretty sure that there is a mix of full and Juliet balconies on that side, too. It is part of the design of the building.

Hi Everyone,

We are considering upgrading our January YC trip to Concierge Level. We've stayed CL before at the YC but we haven't done the lagoon/pool view. On the Standard side of the CL there are joint balconies is that the case on the lagoon/pool view as well? That is something we really want to avoid and we're basing our decision to upgrade on this.

Any help really appreciated. Also - are there any photos of what the view looks like from a YC lagoon/pool view? I tried searching but didn't find much.

Thank you!

Oh my gosh...that sounds like a wonderful trip! It's funny that our dates are so similar at almost the same resorts! Can I go on vacation with your family? I've always wanted to go on a Disney Cruise. I'll have to check prices and see if it's something we might be able to swing!
