The very large Pirate in room celebration we had done though was done through Disney events because we were doing a weeklong celebration with numerous special events booked like an Illuminations party, etc. just didn't want you to think IPO did that. it was actually one of our events and rather expensive. We had a person assigned to us to coordinate all of this through their sales office.
I understand, thanks for clarifying though. It all sounds like it turned out great. I'm going to give them a call on Monday to see if they're willing to do anything. I bet it depends on how busy they are as well. Thanks for all your help!

As a fellow fan of Mickey treats...I hope this works out
Thanks for the welcome! I'm going to give them a call and see what happens. The worst they can do is direct me to the florist again!

Mickey treats are awesome! We always make sure we get extra to take home! Thanks for the help!!

From all the things I've read - will be staying at the BC doing a standard room on the Club level for the first time next week - each room has a balcony, either a standard one or a Juliet balcony which is smaller than a regular balcony.

Hope that helps! Have a great time!!

Hi Everyone! Been awhile since I posted here. Our last stay at the YC was in August 2011. It was our first stay at the YC. I didn't have the greatest time, for many reasons. I'm thinking of trying BC for our trip this April. (4/15-4/22).

Is the pool as crowded in April as August?

Also, to get s full balcony, is that what we request? Or are there specific rooms I should request. Going with a garden view room.

Thanks!!

Those are my feelings exactly!!! I don't care what I am looking at, as long as I have a full balcony to drink my coffee before everyone gets up.

Yes, there are standard view club level rooms with a full balcony. According to my notes, most of the rooms in that category DO have full balconies, just a handful do not.

I had one in 2010- there was a big tree blocking the view of the parking lot, I could see the BCV rooftops and at night, I could see some of the Illuminations fireworks and a lot of the fireworks from MK.

Thank you !
Scroll up a few posts. Janet Mom has a link to her trip report from her stay at the Yacht Club.

dawnbu40 has a current trip report and stayed a couple of nights at the YC:

A Daily Dose of Disney Drama http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3002827

And of course, there is "If the Yacht Club was a Person I would marry it" trip report by a young lady getting ready to enter the Disney College Program.

Happy reading!

If you go to that link and scroll down to post 6 you can see that the view from 3691 has a lagoon view through some trees. Those photos are taken from the full balcony that faces the courtyard, so it's off to the right. That room also has a standing room only balcony that directly faces the lagoon, the other photos are from that balcony. Lagoon straight ahead (through trees) and the pool to the right.

The original post in that thread says that room 4681 is also a Deluxe room but I think that might be a typo and it's really 4691. They also say that 4691 has a standing room only balcony but I'm looking on Bing Maps and I think maybe it has two standing balconies. One toward the lagoon and one towards the courtyard.

So also in that post you'll see that 3557 has a standing balcony that has a nice straight on view of the lagoon.
Thanks for the info! I just looked at my notes, and the deluxe room is 4691. I'll make those corrections when I have the chance.

Packed up and ready to go!! Leaving early tomorrow for a 6 night stay at BC......first time there and I know I will love it.

My only request was a full balcony. I love sitting out early morning with a couple cups of coffee.....

I'm a little worried that being a solo traveler, I will get a Juliette balcony.
But, I'll just be happy to be there

Thought about going all Ninja Mom on them and shoving one of my sisters over the construction wall with the orders to get a date or else. Neither one would cooperate.

Have a great time! I'm so jealous! But I'll be there soon enough! The Beach Club is such a nice place to stay! You'll love it!

Can't wait to hear about your trip!

I think the Lumix that came out this year have even more Zoom. 16x ?
Correction, it has a Leica lens, oops!

How did you know I snuck over the wall to take a peek!? There was a lot of buzzing and sawing while I was there. When I put my ear up to the wall and listened I could hear the workers singing "If I Had a Hammer" by Peter, Paul and Mary. That may be where the problem lies....
