Your pictures from your trip to see Lily are so adorable. Wish we could be staying at BCV again this trip, but OKW was only villa available for our trip. Happy to be staying at a villa though, it is so nice to have the kitchenette, and extra space.
Definitely that Sunday. Not sure if I'll be there Saturday or Monday.
See you soon!

Thanks for the info. My plan is to use Hurricane Hanna for mug refills, so thanks for confirming that it is closer! I really didn't pay much attention during our BC stay.

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

If you have any questions, ask away! If you haven't been over to the first page of the thread, there is a lot of info and tons of pictures and links to help you plan your stay.

Please let us know when and where you book!

He told us he would rather go to Disney! I can't wait to see the look on his face when we pull up to the gate at YC.(our home away from home)

The suspense is killing me. I had to share. I can't even add a ticker for the risk that he might see it


What a great surprise!

I'll add you to the guest list.

Thanks for clarifying your dates. I kinda sorta had you on the guest list under Nov, but now that you have let me know exactly when your trip is I'll put you in the proper place!

We had enough to cover a value, since we had flights paid already, and planned on Pop Century! II am thrilled to say, with hubby's overtime and my end of year bonus, we no longer have to be so frugal and will be back to BC CL!
back!!!

When is your trip??? I never removed you from the list- the dates I had were jcondrad Dec 9-17

Please, please, please, check the Be Our Guest list to make sure I have the info on your trip listed correctly.

If you see anything I need to change, or if you want to add specific dates, please post.


Post 13: Be Our Guest list


October was a blur!!! There was a death in my family, my son Ben was in theatre production with days and days of rehearsal and 5 shows, Ben also had a flag football tournament yesterday (his team played 5 26 minute games, and his Ravens came in 2nd). Oh yeah, and there was a hurricane!

Hoping I can do a better job keeping up in November. The main thing on my plate is a Casino Night I am running for the middle school on Nov 17.

I couldn't copy off the picture to post here, but I see what you mean. I don't know what room that is- maybe one of the suites?

http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/res...t-club-resort/

Click on the link and go to the rooms tab.

Here's a picture of the outside of the Yacht Club. If you look above the large tree in the marina, you can see the two circular windows on either side of the palladium window.

What is important to you?

Location? Close to lobby/Stormalong Bay or close to EPCOT. High or low floor?
Balcony- if you are staying at BC, you may want to request a full-size balcony
Convenience- close (or far) from elevator
Daybed?
View? With as standard room, you will be overlooking a parking lot or rooftops.

We had a standard view in 2010 on club level and we could see some of the Illuminations fireworks and a lot of the MK fireworks from our balcony. This was a room on the fifth floor overlooking the BC parking lot and the Port Corchiere (sp) at the front entrance of the resort.

We do not advise asking for a particular room number as a request, but to try to verbalize what it is you want. That gives the room assigner the best chance to try to give you a room that meets your needs.

We also recommend that you check in at the resort (not the online advanced checkin) so you can discuss the features of your room before you take your keys.

Check out the info on room requests and online vs. in person checkin in the FAQ Post 12 on page 1.

However, I quickly learned that a balcony is not something we use. I wish we would've kept 5163 because this room was HUGE and it was very close to the lounge. Next time, I will know that having a balcony is not a high priority for us and will not request it.

We had a fantastic stay at YC and I can't decide which one I like best BC or YC. Either one is perfect for me! Can't wait for my next trip!

I was thinking that all the YC CL rooms had a balcony. What do you think? Should I add "balcony" to my request?


On a side note, I hope all that were in Sandy's path continue to stay safe, especially those who still don't have power...
This is news to me. Does anyone have more info about this room?

Hello...I'm new to this thread but am definitely a WDW vet!

We are Deluxe addicts, and want to check out the YC in the spring. We stayed years ago at BC, but didn't realize then the full extent of our addiction!

I'll be reading on this thread and getting ideas on any requests I might want to make for my sister and me, so we can have the full YC experience.

I was particularly interested in someone's comment re: refilling the mug and having a longer walk to do so. I am a big coffee drinker and NEED my morning cuppa joe..exactly where is the Hurricane Hannah's that was mentioned to have a refill station?

Hi Kelleigh1:

Sorry you're not enjoying the resort as much as you thought you would. This time of year is tricky, weather wise. We have gone in Oct. & Nov. before and had some hot days & some cold days. My kids will go in the pools no matter what the weather is. I only go in the pools if the weather is hot. Since having kids, we always plan a mid-day break and one resort day. We do enjoy all the deluxe resorts have to offer. Before kids, we often stayed at CBR and loved it there.

I've been to F&W at Epcot a few times and enjoyed it. I found it very crowded on the weekends, but not so bad during the week. We also are not big drinkers, we like to try different foods. We have joked that Epcot should have a separate "Food Festival" for all the non-drinkers, maybe right after F&W ends.

I agree that deluxe dining is a lot of food. It is too much for my family and we don't want to be tied to too many ADR's. We have enjoyed the regular dining plan, club level, and TiW. Those are better options for my family. As with most things Disney, you don't know until you try it.

Thanks for checking in with us and sharing your thoughts. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay and have a safe trip home.

Dee, we are so grateful for all you do! It's quite simply an AMAZING job!! No worries that you may be a little slow because of things going on at home and you are not your usual, super prompt self. Your efforts are very much appreciated and we want you to know that you are worth any wait.

Dee - I'm always amazed at how much you do!

This is THE BEST thread on the Dis!

Have fun with your casino night - we did one last year and had a ball.
November 17 is our "Designer Bag Bingo" this year. We're trying something new - hope it works out as well as the casino night. Good luck!
