Personally I'd call but go through IPO. The front desk people don't assign the rooms.

Make the call about five days before check-in. That's when they "start" assigning some rooms.

I should be there Sunday while you are there. Right now I'm still Sundays and Mondays but they keep saying it may change to Saturdays and Sundays.

Well, we are there for 2 Saturdays, 2 Sundays, and 1 Monday, so I hope to get to meet you in person at least once!

I think the twin is your best bet. That's what we bring.

We had a great sv cl room last summer that didn't have a daybed. We loved the room so we didn't want to switch. The air mattress came in very handy!

Today, I went to the WDW site to get a price for a room at the Beach Club for Sept 21st - 28th. It showed me the only available rooms are lagoon/water view. The lower priced rooms are not available.

Can this really be true? I thought that would be lower season. Is there a big event during this time that has all the standard/garden rooms booked already?

Well, the Food & Wine festival at Epcot starts 9/27. BC is very popular for F&W as it is a easy stroll to Epcot. Perhaps that is what you Are up against.

Yes, that includes opening days of food & wine festival at epcot, a peak bc booking time-even if generally lower crowds overall due to school starting

Hello Teena!! Its been a long time since I've been on these boards! Missing you! We hope to be back at the Beach Club in May 2014 for DD's graduation trip!!! When we come, we'll have to do dinner again with You and Bob! We may be coming in January 2014 for a quick trip for a long weekend, but these trips are just too far away!!! Hoping we'll hit it right, and get to see Jeanne and Lily one of these trips!

I hope you don't ahve to go to Saturday and Sunday...that's your whole weekend!

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.
I phoned the UK Disney company freephone number and booked it for August no problem.

Definitely dinner!!!!
Saturday and Sunday are fine. The other five days will be my "weekend". When you're retired and have a fun job, the days just don't matter.

Can't believe you won't be back for a year. There is no way you'll stay away that long!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had the same experience today exactly a month later in October. Not a single standard room at BC or YC. I am guessing it is F&W but also side-eyeing Disney's website since I was having other issues getting it to search at all.

I wouldn't trust the website. Call.

So I called tonight and the rep told me the website is correct, all standard and garden rooms are booked, probably because Food and Wine starts this weekend. The rep tried to get me to look into the BC Villas, but I worry that the resort is going to be very packed now.
