Request for studio location at BC

My family is staying at BC for the first time in May-June. Anyone have suggestions for a room request location? Is the pool view noisy? Maybe not a factor since it closes at 10:00 and we tend to stay out late.

thanks!

Hello all,

I've had a very exciting week, I reached my 180 days out milestone on Tuesday so I've spent this week ringing Disney to book my ADRs.

This is what i've booked:
  • Coral Reef - Dinner
  • (CD) Cape May Café - Breakfast
  • (CD) Tusker House - Lunch
  • (CD) 1900 Park Fare - Dinner
  • Sci-Fi Dine in - Lunch
  • (CD) Crystal Palace - Breakfast
  • Hoop De Do Musical - Dinner Show
  • Yachtsmans at Yacht Club - Dinner
  • Mama Melrose’s Fantastic Package - Lunch
  • Ohana’s - Dinner
  • (CD) Garden Grill - Dinner
  • Captains Grille - Breakfast
  • (CD) Chef Mickey's - Dinner
Really excited, got everything I wanted.

I'm thinking about booking the Pirates and Pals Firework Cruise as well.

My DH hates the busses, and so our YC stay necessitates the MK and AK busses.

(We realize that this takes longer than the bus trips usually do, but he doesn't care about the time...)

Is there another path we can take to YC when Epcot is closed? Or perhaps the monorail won't even be running after those evening EMH (I may have just answered my own question...)
You are correct BurleyGirl. They stopped running the monorail during EMH's in 2011. This may a good case for a taxi. You can walk to Contemporary and catch one from there??? Just a suggestion if buses are a deal killer. And there is no other paths to Y&BC from the Epcot main gate. You do have walk through.

If you do stay close to SAB (main pool) it can get noisy. Even more so during the day as they have activities. We are a Garden View family.

Having grown up in Florida and also lived in Massachusetts for 3 years, I can tell you that Florida-cold is way different than Northern-cold. The humidity stays year-round in Florida, and when the temperatures drop, the moist, cold air cuts right to your bones. Bone-chilling-cold...At least that is what we tell ourselves when people laugh at us for wearing winter coats in 50 degree weather. hehe.

So bundle up, and stay comfy!

UGH! So frustrated and I do everything online. I've been doing all my Disney ressies online for years. I hate calling the number. So, not wanting to spend Valentine's Day on hold on the phone, I guess I'll wait until tomorrow. I hate this new site.
Someone on another thread told me to click on the option to make a map. In doing so it takes you to the old website. You can look at your reservation and then make a payment there online! This was a week ago when I did it !

Jump in anytime...

They allow you to request it (we have) but from what I understand it is very rarely granted (they didn't let us). Don't think they have a $$$$ late checkout. Anyone?

Thanks, Robyn!

Not necessarily. We keep pricing summer trips and we will be down "If the price is right!" Hoping for a summer discount or a PIN.

.
We're hoping for the same discount or pin too! Could make the difference between gv and cl! It would be fantastic to have "real Dee" at the BC/YC meet! Looks like a go for July 6. Teena will still be able to make it if we have it then before she heads out to the Princess Lily birthday command performance.

Not that I am aware of, though you can certainly ask to speak with one of the managers if you feel you have a case for being granted a late checkout. In my past visits, I have packed my luggage and left it at Bell Services or checked it with the Magical Express desk (depending on if I flew in or if we drove). Then we went to a park or wherever we wanted until it was time to depart. Luggage was ready when we were.

Thanks - I know we'll still have a fantastic time. It seems crazy to even be feeling bad about not staying CL. I know how lucky we are to be able to go to Disney every year. It's just that we've been staying CL for the last six years and it feels like "home" to us.

Good luck again!
Yes I can't wait, I'm trying to be very open minded, that this is an entirely different resort with its special features, my DD15 is the opposite --pouting all over the place"WHY, I don't want too!" So annoying I don't want her to bring everyone down, especially her little brother!!!

Good luck ;-) Your knee... I'm glad it was after you're Walt Disney World trip! I hope it heals nicely for your June trip... Take care!!!!

Hey, I noticed the title of your post was "Request for Studio Location". Studios are at the BCV, not the BC, and nothing at the BCV has a view of SAB which is the pool that closes at 10:00.

This is our first stay at BC however we have requested late check out at the Poly every time we have stayed there. We were granted the request 3 out of the 4 times we asked and there was no charge. However, late check out only gets you to 1 p.m. versus 11 a.m..

My DD16 is OVERLY disappointed that there are no hammocks! However, I simply remind her not to judge and to find something unique at the BC that will be special to her. The hammocks have always been her escape place to have some time on her own.

Did you book the Fantasmic package already? I tried to book it last week too and it looked like it only had bookings up to the end of May.
