YC Mind you I haven't stayed at BC, I do LOVE BC decor, BUT...

YC staff was above and beyond (on par with WL & GF) and it was definitely a more relaxing resort...JMHO

Yeah YC! I chose YC as they have more full balconies and patios, which are a deal breaker for us. I would not be happy with a Juliet balcony or none at all. I requested 1st floor, close to lobby and day bed. We got 2/3, 1st floor and a day bed. We were far from the lobby and pool. I was still ok with our room, but it did make quite a long trek from our room to fill our mugs or take a quick dip in the pool.

If you can book a water view room, watching Illuminations at night from our patio was lovely! We enjoyed it very much and like our view of the BW at night.

YC is farther from IG, but only 1-2 minutes more. Worth the extra time for us.

I cannot agree with this more. I mentioned many will state a "BIG" advantage the BC has over the YC is it's location to IG. For me, 200 yards of additional walking is no big deal. Besides, that 200 yards is made up since the YC is closer to the boat launch for those who use the boat instead to go to DHS. Either way, they are both excellent resorts.

Oh yeah, an extra 200 yards is no big deal for us. I do have a question about EMH in EPCOT. Since the EMH in the morning is for Futureworld, will they still let you enter through IG and walk to the left towards Futureworld? In the past when we have gone to EPCOT for EMH in the morning they have had WS blocked off.

Still booked at Poly but leaning towards YC!!!

Yes they will let you in at the IG just walked to the left past England.

We have stayed at both BC and YC. They are both beautiful and relaxing resorts. If getting something to eat(Counter Service) at the resort is important to you then BC has the Marketplace. The YC doesn't have a CS.

Full balcony is important to us. If you decide on BC just make a request. That's what we did. Not only did we get the full balcony, we also were upgraded to Club Level.
