I had a room like that once, too. It was at the end of the BC rooms. Let's hope that the odds are with you and you get something better this time.

And then my Uncle is getting married at Hotel Hershey in August so looks like we are doing Hershey Park.

While I will miss my beloved WDW, I know we will be back in January for a land/sea combo so I will just have to wait out my time for sunken treasures and live vicariously through you good folk on this board

Looking forward to reading Dee's report!
Make sure to eat some lobster while you're there!!

We are thinking about staying at the Beach Club in 2014 for my 40th birthday. We are usually a value family so when my husband suggested the BC, I almost fainted. I am going to go back and read this whole thread. I am excited about the possibility of being able to walk to EPCOT and DHS. Thanks to everyone for providing all the information on this thread.

Thanks for this. It looks like there has been some upgrades to page 1 since the last time I read it a year or so ago. This will be our 4th stay at the resort in 2 years. I should be answering questions not asking them LOL.

Ninja Mom, this is the second or third time I have seen you give the advice to all to use the common areas inside the BCV building. These two areas are not available for the guests of the Beach Club, but for Villa guest only. As a DVC BCV owner, I pay many hundreds (over a thousand) dollars a year just in maintainence fees on my membership to, among other things, maintain these spaces. I understand that your husband discovered these rooms and enjoyed them. I agree that there is no one there to "throw him out". That doesn't make it right.
Everyone has the option to join DVC to enjoy DVC benefits. If you can not or choose not, please respect the spaces that are reserved for members only. I don't mean to be a PIA, but I pay a lot of money each and every year, whether I go or not, for the DVC benefits I have. I want to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet you describe, and that I pay for.
Thanks
Hey Hopefully, '
First time I've heard this.
Thanks for letting me know. I too am a DVC owner at BCV''s and have never heard this. Is it posted in the villas? Is it somewhere in the deed? Is it in our paper we receive at checkin?
And that lead me to more questions, Does it include the pool? Are the Villa people allowed to use the Solarium? SAB?
Wow. Guess I need educating too.

In true psuedo Dee style, I added you to the BOG list on page one, (She will officially add upon return)

Welcome!

We've had the farthest room on 4th floor of BC closest to YC & then we had farthest room on 4th floor of YC closest to BC! What's the likelihood of that? Both were so far from elevator!!

I don't think you are correct. Anyone can rent rooms through Disney on a cash basis for any DVC resort. All resorts are open to the public, and visitors are welcome.

Beach Club/Yacht Club Resort guests are allowed to use the pool at BCV, so it doesn't make sense to forbid them from other public areas. This link from the Disney resort site specifically states that Beach Club/Yacht Club guests may use all pools throughout the complex.

Agreed... These are public areas. Not only can members rent their points, but Disney themselves have a percentage of inventory that can be used for cash customers, just as stated above. Anyways, each time i walk by the area described, it's always empty, or at most, i've seen one or 2 people there.

Nope!

But I do have a startling confession to make. I have been cheating on you. I have been hanging around on another discussion board!!!



The Unofficial Barcelo Maya site is a lot like the DIS- vacation planning questions, trip reports, etc. however it is WAY smaller in scope than the DIS. As I hinted in a post, I am doing a Drink of the Day Countdown over there- posting photos from past trips.

Drink of the Day

The really ironic thing is that my husband and I dont drink that much. Really. Very rarely when we are home, and a little bit on vacation. Several of the drinks on my countdown are actually non-alcoholic versions ordered by the boys.



Anyway, I want to wish you all a wonderful week! Ill be checking back a couple of times before I go, but Ill probably be mostly lurking. Lots of last minute things to do.

MickeyT- The list is yours!

Adios, mi amigos

Dee

.
Have a fabulous trip! We stayed on the colonial side in 2006 and loved it!!! No complaints whatsoever. The swim up bar was the highlight of the trip and the beach is gorgeous. Now back to Disney planning (which won over a Punta Cana trip).

This may be old news since it was posted 9 days ago (catch up mode here), but my husband and I did the segway tour on our adult only trip a couple years ago and had a really great time. We both loved learning how to ride a segway and then getting to actually use it. We got to go around world showcase before it opened, so there weren't any people that we had to work around. They keep the classes pretty small - around 10 or so.

There was one lady in our group that fell off her segway. I don't really know what she was doing when she did that, but she got up and got back on it. And you get to wear those awesome helmets. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I can't answer your question about entering through the gateway - we were coming from POFQ, so we went through the front gate.

I have no idea. It just seemed to make sense for us. We won't really need the mugs since we'll have the lounge. As far as dining choices, many of the places that I wanted to eat are not buffets, so my daughter and I should be able to share a meal and not be so wasteful. Seemed that saving money in some of those manners would help me justify the additional cost of CL. Since our kids are younger, it will be nice for my husband to step down the hall with them when they're ready and feed them while I'm still getting dressed, too!
