We've been running almost full for a long time. There is no slow season any more. We might have a day or two a week that is below 90% but most of the time we are very full. Families and conventions.

Teena -helpful on-site info as always. As you note, not only food and wine, but September/October is also prime convention month. And all epcot-area resorts have a convention facility, so if even one has a "big" one, then it can fill up hotels at other ones.

Hi everyone!

I've been lurking on here for the past month or so as I plan our next trip to BC in May. Last time we were there we stayed on the first floor in that little hallway between the marketplace and the main lobby. Our room was in the volleyball court. We really liked this room location, but now that I know more, I'm wondering if we should have been afraid of snakes 😮 Anyone have any experience with critters on the first floor? Should we request the same location again or am I missing another hidden gem of a location?

Also, I can't remember if the rooms have iPhone charger alarm clocks? Can someone refresh my memory? Thanks a lot! 😊

Some Help on Room selection

We're going to be staying at the YC starting on 2/22. Currently I'm in the middle of treatment for lyme disease and have joints issues etc...

We're staying on the club level and I have no idea how close these rooms are to transportation. Anyone know if the rooms are Spread out over the resort or if they are all clustered on the 5th floor above the Lobby?

I'm only asking so I can politely request something close to the transport area...I can walk around pretty well, I just swell up and get sore after a bit, I'd like to try and use my energy in the parks and not getting to the bus/boat.

Help is much appreciated.

I knows DD15 loves the hammocks also. I told her to keep an open mind & she's just acting like a bratty teen girl (DRAMA x 1000)

It is a shame we likely won't be staying at our beloved BC if we can't land a standard or garden room. Our October dates aren't flexible (non-Disney wedding). But, of course, everyone wants to stay there and occupancy is high - everyone loves it as much as we do.

We've stayed in first floor rooms at YC, BC and the GF and never had a problem. DH and I are terrified of snakes. When we had the ground floor room at BC it was a great deluxe cl room. I just told the front desk of our snake "phobia" and they said they would send the animal control people over there every day just to check.

The only CL rooms not on the 5th floor are the Deluxe rooms and most of the suites. Once you exit the elevator on the ground floor, you're only about 2 - 4 minute walk to either the bus stop or the boats to EP and DHS.

My niece's bday is a few days after we leave Disney. My sister wants to do something special for her the day b4 we all leave. We are all staying a YC CL. If we ask IPO while we are there to put balloons and maybe a few treats & stuff animal (we will buy them from the gift shop) in her room while we are out for when they get back as a surprise. Will they?

I have already looked into the in room celebration I think they are a little high priced for what they offer. She just wants something small. I am her designated family TA lol. So I would be doing the arranging lol
