I have a small tiny Box Fan. It is probably 1/2 the size of my laptop height wise but thicker. This may be an option.

Yip that's what I'm thinking

Oh yea, btw the lobster rolls look ok, butif you want to try the best lobster in the world come to Maine in the summer or fall. If you're wondering how I know, it's because I'm a lobster fisherman from Maine .
Guess the clue is in your name I have always wanted to visit Maine in the fall but Disney keeps "stealing" all my money

He told me its a sign call and book right now! Now let all the planning begin. We are moving 3 months before our trip so I hope I can keep everything straight.��


I already have you on the list, but I will put it in permanent type now.

What a great story!!!

Does it make you feel like maybe Disney has a microphone or something in your house and they were just waiting to ambush you???

Right now we have a standard Garden view room, but may consider an upgrade to water-view if it guaranteed a longer daybed.


I'll add you to the list!



A couple of people have chimed in with info about the larger daybeds. We generally don't recommend putting in specific room numbers for a room request because if those rooms are occupied the day you check in, the room assigner may not know what it is you really wanted.

Put in a request for a full size daybed (although I have been told even the checkin people don't know which rooms have which type of daybed). Or maybe ask at checkin if you can have a room without a daybed and a rollaway cot instead. I have read many times that they are very comfortable for people of all heights. Might be a better tradeoff than the smaller daybed.

We were leaning toward thinking about staying at the BC because we had dinner there last year and toured the resort and really liked it. However, for our dates the BC isn't available but the YC is. I'm just not sure if we will like the YC. I've been looking at pictures and it looks nice, but boy am I kicking myself now for not taking the time to go look around there when we dined at the BC last year.

I think SAB is the biggest draw since we will be there during the summer, but I am worried about the room view since all that's available is standard view and I heard that's going to be a rooftop view at the YC. We will absolutely use the balcony and a view would be nice, though I know I can keep checking to see if something with a better view opens up.

If we decide to go with the YC, anyone who has had a standard view, was there anything specific you requested to get a view that wasn't awful?


I prefer the lighter decor at the Beach Club, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Yacht Club, especially if SAB is one of your primary reasons to stay at the resort. The location and access to EPCOT and HS is essentially equal. And you do have the added bonus of a guaranteed full balcony.

Janetmom stayed in a SV room at YC (it was a club level room)- I have linked her trip report at the end of the very first post on Page 1 of this thread. I'll go back in a minute and link the section with her view here.

Let us know if you make the plunge and I'll add you to the list.

I was browsing through old BCV threads on google and came across one from 2009 (around the time they were switching out all of the tube tvs for flatscreens) where someone said a CM claimed BCV was due for a "major refurb" in 2013. Has anyone heard about this? Booking 11 months out makes me curious what the resort will look like when I actually get there! I much prefer the clean white linens of the regular BC rooms but am saving money by going through points.

On a personal note, I stayed at the YC in summer 2011 for a conference and the entire time I wished I was at BC... SO EXCITED! 2014 can't come soon enough.


I haven't heard anything, but then again I don't really know anything about BCVs. That would be really exciting news! If anyone knows about a soft or full refurb, please share!

We are running out of colors, but I will use BLUE for my reply.

According to the time stamp on these pictures, they were taken around 2-3 PM on a day in July. Looks like there is some elbow room. I have a few other pictures I looked at showing this area near the waterfall without many people, but that was from 5-6 PM.








I think these pictures are of the pool in front of where Beaches & Cream or the YC walkway is, but not positive.


A little more crowded here, same time:

Thank you! Sorry for the delay, a few of us in my family caught some type of bug and I've been hit the hardest since I have been carrying for everyone and doing all of the cleaning to try and sanitize.

This looks better then any busy day by the Nanae Pool at the Poly! Thanks again for all of the photos!

Uploading Photo with "Easy Linking Mode" on Photobucket.



Ah HA! I finally figured out how to post a picture!! Thank you Dee for the step-by-step instructions link. I have been trying to figure it out (slightly painful process!!). I went through all the Photobucket settings and found under profile "User Settings", "Album", "Turn on Easy Linking Mode". WOW does that make it easy. Also figured out how to download the mobile iPhone app and link that to my phone for really easy upload (since I am rarely at the computer).

Thanks for posting that picture! Awesome.

I don't know about that Easy Linking Mode on PB. I'll have to check into it.

Dee, between your instructions (regarding [IMG] and what I figured out, it made uploading a breeze. Aside from hearing about Photobucket from other posters, I couldn't figure out how to link it. :0)
