Has something to do with the fact that the colonies wanted to be totally different than the rest of the world after they declared their independance from your government. I know that in a business environment I have to be very careful about how I put the date on the document whenever I am sending or signing something that goes to another country. That's why I usually spell it out rather than use numbers. Just wish the rest of the world would get on board and do it the right way

Trying to check pricing for BC/YC for this October, for a getaway long weekend. Interesting thing: I can't find any availability on the WDW site except values. I tried searching for any deluxe and then any moderate. Same answer: just keeps showing Pop Century and Art of Animation. Anybody recently book for late October? Seems odd that there'd be nothing at any in either class.

Hoping to return to BC, or try the "dark side"

October has apparently become quite popular. We are going the week of Halloween, but I booked way back in January. If you're looking at the week before Halloween, you're not finding availability for a couple reasons....big convention that week (Gartner or something like that) and because apparently there are several schools which have an October break around that time and a LOT of people are heading to Disney. I actually belong to a Facebook group of October Disney visitors and just our group alone is about 200 people.

Gartner Symposium--a ginormous convention is (I think) Oct 21-25, or thereabouts.
Combine that with Epcot Food and Wine, it's a busy time.
Have you tried limited date ranges, and added a day at a time to see when there might be availability? BTW, we love the dark side.

What is the most important request for you? From what I understand, there aren't a lot of king beds available. If this is your priority, it may come at a sacrifice of location.

If the location is what you enjoyed most, perhaps you could word a request "Full balcony, please, room near EPCOT. King bed, if possible"






I appreciate your comments!

I'll add you to the list.








I will add you to the Be Our Guest list. What great birthday plans!






Don't think I have you on the list, so and I will put you on as a last minute addition.








Will do!







Let us know if you end up changing your reservation to the Beach Club!




Thanks so much for your kind words!



Let us know if you book another trip!




We have trouble fitting in the waterparks during 7 day trips in July, although our usual plan is to do a half day at AK then go directly to Blizzard Beach. I wouldn't go out of my way to get there. Any chance you can fit it in last minute if the weather turns out really nice?







I think that drove me crazy, too! Are the lights time or light- activated?

I'm up every morning at O-dark:30 and I think I actually dragged a floor lamp between the curtain and the balcony so I could read (I think it was at the BC, but could have been somewhere else...)
Its funny the last two rooms that we had at BC (BC CL) our balcony light was ALWAYS on - I noticed the ones across from us and some were on and some were off. I liked that ours was on because I'm up very early and sit out there with my coffee. Of course if we wanted to turn it off we couldn't! Can't figure it out.

Thanks!
That explains why Swan/Dolphin is blacked out totally (it looks) from 10/21-25. And I see on the symposium that they also use YC, BC, and BW for hotels, and that they're all sold out. Maybe I should check at work, and switch my vacation week. I suppose I could also try DU, and see if they've got any rooms blocked. We were hoping for a room only discount, but I'd think there wouldn't be many of those during this week.

I think a childhood friend is going to this. He talks about being at WDW every fall for a few nights, in the Epcot resorts area.

Despite briefly considering Swan, we are coming back to Beach Club! Will be there Oct 12-14 for F&W Festival and my birthday! Our first trip to Disney without the kids! We have tickets for Party for the Senses on Sat Oct 13 and decided the convenience of Beach Club to Epcot was worth it. We will just enjoy the hotel and Epcot. Probably won't even visit other parks that weekend but are already looking into a trip with the kids for MLK weekend in January!
We saved 15% in October with AAA.
Looking forward to the Beach Club smell. It will be our first time visiting there when it is not Christmas, so it will be the smell minus gingerbread!

Cool! I can't wait until the reviews start rolling. Did it take long to get through? Maybe we'll see you next week!

Just placed my Garden Grocer order- it's really happening! Sooooooo excited! My daughter is super-excited, and I overheard her talking to a friend about the trip- she said, "The resort I'm going to is really cool- but someday I hope I get to stay at the place my mom stayed- Beach Club. They have the BEST POOL EVER". I can't wait to surprise her with Beach Club! DH is going to try to distract her as we walk up to the ME podium- I'd love to make it all the way onto the bus before she realizes what's happening!

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

This could be a much longer hospital stay than we imagined. Not a real happy camper at the moment, and my 12 year old daughter is in tears.
About an hour ago I got the nicest phone call from Disney, thanking me for my letter and asking how Peter was doing. They said they would look up the name of the CM whose name I had forgotten, and pass my words on to Dave, the manager who was so helpful.

I've got to say: Disney is one class operation!
