Don't know if I'm eligible for the BOG list in January, because we're splitting between Poly and BWI CL. I love so many resorts, but I usually get to try new resorts and keep BC/YC in the mix with split stays. I'll definitely be around BC/YC during our stay (minus SAB - boo!) And I promise to contribute photos!!! If Dee determines I'm eligible for the BOG list with a non-BC/YC stay, it's January 26-February 1.

Thanks so much for the info. I was a little concerned about the am selections. I checked out all ears but it wasn't listed. Love all the information on this thread! Can't wait to make our trip official.

We're 9 months away but just booked for 3 nights at the BC before our stay at the GF. Have never stayed at the BC before but have stayed at the YC twice and LOVED it.

We decided to go with the Beach Club this time just to switch things up a little and try something new.

Doing the happy dance!

My family and I stayed at BC the last week of August. We absolutely loved it! We had connecting rooms - 3503 & 3505 - right next to the secret entrance/exit, which thanks to this thread, I knew all about. I just want to reiterate what everyone here says - the resort and pools are wonderful. My kids loved the little water slide and the pools were perfect for them.

I posted a ton of pictures on the resort photo thread last night - if you're interested.

Just a quick question--

We have a standard view booked for August 2013 but I have read that there really aren't any great standard views (i.e., gardens). Is it worth it upgrading the view? I'm just afraid of paying extra money for a nice view and then ending up with a room without a balcony!

Any advice from BC veterans? Thanks!

To upgrade to a garden view is just a few dollars more a day. You have as much chance of getting a balcony with a standard view as a garden view. A garden view isn't always great but it's better than a standard for sure. A garden view may be deep overgrown woods. Anything that is not view of a roof, parking lot or water is a garden view. To upgrade to a super view (water view) is quite a bit more and again, as with the standard and garden views, that doesn't give you any better chance of getting a balcony.

Thank you! We had a water view rooms and the view was beautiful but the balconies were standing room only, which was a bit of a bummer. The saving grace was the fact that I could let the kids out there (it was narrow but long) and not have to worry about them standing on a chair or something.
