I am not even packed and we leave our house around 4:30 am tomorrow. I don't even know yet where we will stay when we get there. I just left my TA a msg to see if she can find anywhere at Disney, or we will have to scour nearby hotels.

I'm happy we will start our official first Disney day more rested, but I'm definitely a bit stressed at the moment and just hoping the front doesn't move in faster than anticipated so we can get out!
Deep breaths and have a wonderful trip!

I would probably be reporting back if about the lack of balcony if I was assigned to that room at the YC with the expectation of a full balcony. I wonder if this room is not assigned to guests unless necessary (pure speculation on my part)

More speculation by a guest who posted long ago. She thought the YC CL GV rooms were these:

5148
5150
5152
5154

(all are facing gazebo facing away from Epcot, making it difficult to see water too)

5198

(faces away from Epcot and just outside the main lake entrance, but no view of lake from that angle)

No mention of 5163.


Here is the Disney Zone Map:


Disney Zone Archived Room Layout Map for Yacht Club


So all of this info unfortunately doesn't really tell you anything.


My recommendation is to request "Full balcony, please, Gazebo view if possible". I think most of the YC CL GV have the view anyway, so chances are good you would get that without requesting the assignment.

Ask at checkin whether your room has a full balcony. If not, tell the CM that you booked at the YC because you really wanted a full balcony and see if there is a room that you can be reassigned to.

.
I wanted to add something to this great reply regarding YC CL GV rooms.

In 2010 my DH and I actually stayed in room 5198. That's the one YC CL GV room that overlooks the main lake entrance. Just an FYI...this room is a king bed room (or at least it was in 2010).

So, if the above list is correct, it stands to reason that if you are booked YC CL GV and have 4 people in your party, you will automatically get a wedding gazebo view, right? Also, if you looked left, this room had a beautiful view of the lagoon. Here are some pictures of the room and the view in case anyone is interested:

My DH always laughs at me when I take a picture of the door, but it's great for remembering which room you stayed in:





View from the full balcony:

We are going to need a 12 step program just for the people that read this thread! Our cholesterol levels and Livers may not recover from all these temptations...

You tell that "friend" she..... I mean 'they' better behave and stop promoting a life of luxury at the BC/YC resort. People might get the wrong idea and start liking the place!

PS. It's too bad this "friend" didn't get a picture of that Lobster/seafood roll. She, I mean 'they' should probably go back and get a picture of it.... strictly for informational purposes I mean....

Thank you so much for the additional information!!! Very helpful in unraveling the YC CL GV picture!

No daybed, right? Do you know if the chair become a pullout sleeper?

If you don't mind, I would like to add your post to the YC View thread.

Thanks, again!

You can most definitely add the pictures to the YC View thread!

There was definitely no daybed. But, I'm not sure if that big comfy chair became a pullout sleeper. It was just me and my DH, and he never made me mad enough that we had to find out!

You mean if he made you mad you'd make him sleep in the chair? You're too good I'd make mine sleep on the balcony

Reminder:


I recently started up two View Threads in the Resort Photo Subforum:


Beach Club Room Views

Yacht Club Room Views


The purpose of these thread is to give some samples of rooms in various view categories at the Yacht and Beach Clubs.

************************************************** ****

If you have pictures of the view from the room you stayed in, I would appreciate if you could add them to this thread.

Someone recently asked about Standard Views at the YC, so if you have pictures of that particular view, let us know!

Thanks!

Dee
