Any suggestions for garden view rooms? We have stayed at BC serval times and have been water/pool view. Have a favorite room for that level but no idea for garden view. Thanks!

I think this is probably a no, but can refillable mugs be topped up at the BW as well as Y&BC? Just thought if we are strolling round the lake it might be a nice option to have...

I believe the answer is no. The Y&BC are separate resorts from the BW, so if you purchased the mug at Y&BC that is where you should refill it. Perhaps before you head off for your stroll.

I forgot to introduce myself. I'm Alison, and my husband and I are taking our three children (11, 8, 7) to the BC club level August 31 through September 7th. We went last year for the kids' first visit to Disney and stayed at the AoA Cars suites and had a great time. I think that was a perfect first visit resort - we absolutely loved it. We visited most of the deluxe resorts for dinners last year, and we liked the BC for it's convenience to everything and so many options for things to do within walking distance. We had originally thought of doing the AoA again because it was so wonderful, but since this is a second trip, we will likely slow the pace down a little bit, and the BC seems PERFECT for that. Also, I believe the week we are going is much less crowded than when we went last year (mid-August) -- so enjoying a less frenzied pace will be wonderful.

I've stayed at the CR, Swan & Dolphin, and also several offsite hotels over the years. We're looking forward to club level at the BC. My husband loves pampering, so he's probably the most excited of all of us.

I have to say that this is such a wonderful and informative thread! Thank you to Natebenma's hard work in keeping it so organized. Everything I wanted to know was SO easy to find. Kudos!

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!!
The pool (and the parks) could be crowded that week because it is a school vacation week for a lot of schools in New England (and probably elsewhere).

I would suggest just requesting a full balcony, not necessarily a specific room. If you request a specific room, and it is not available, you could end up in whatever they do have available.

Or play Rock Paper Scissors with my mom for room with the balcony ;( didn't see that working out well.
I am so excited for our trip I can not wait! This will be our first CL stay, we are celebrating my mom's 60 th bday. I think it's a great way to celebrate

So glad you have decided to stick around!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

We stayed at Caribbean Beach Club 3 years ago and had a wonderful time, didn't expect to get back so soon or stay deluxe!! Probably our last trip for a while so I want to make sure we do as much as possible. I'll be traveling with DH (who's not a huge Disney fan, working on converting him though), DS 8, and my mom. Most days are park days and we will be spending three days off sight to go to Universal, June 9-11. Not sure if this is the best place to ask this, but we do want to go to the beach and wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to which ones are closest. DS 8 hasn't ever been to a real beach, we live in Kansas, definitely not an ocean around here! Also wondering about favorite activities at BC that we shouldn't miss? Thanks for any advice!
to this thread and the DIS!!!

I hope you are able to convince the family to upgrade!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list on page 1.

First time at US/IoA? Where are you staying? My family visited in 2011. If you want to read about it, the Welcome Foolish Muggles trip report in my signature is about that trip.

I'm glad some people responded to you about the beach.

I'm a grump in the morning, so having a private spot would be nice to sip coffee while everybody else is getting ready. Possible to have a balcony, or not?
I answered your question about the balconies, but I wanted to make sure to give you an official

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.



Edit to add- thanks for the very kind comments!

Let us know when you have booked your trip! I don't know the answer about the pool crowds since I have only been to the BC in July, so hopefully others can answer.

Add "Full balcony, please" to your reservation to request one. Not a guarantee, but it is the best way to let the room assigners know what is important to you.

Thanks for the heads up on this!!! I don't make it over to the forums other than trip reports, so I hadn't seen this.

What a great option for a light international breakfast treat!

Great story (that I snipped) about your Christmas morning surprise! Must be great to be able to discuss the trip with the whole family now!

What play is your daughter doing? My 11 year old son is doing his first middle school play, Pom Pom Zombies. The show looks really fun. Unfortunately, he won't be performing in the spring musical for our regular theatre group. They are doing Aristocats and although he didn't audition, he was cast as Napoleon the dog. But the rehearsal schedules were going to be too much, so he passed on that show

Thanks so much!!! I can't think of anything specific except for any news about Hurricane Hanna's or the slide (which may be down while you are there).

But everyone here loves live reports, so feel free to check in if you have the time!

Enjoy!

Question about BC CL?

So, I was wondering if going GV for BC CL is actually not desirable, as I have read that there are only 5 of them, and that one of those is handicapped accessible (thus, an awkward layout) and then the others are adjoining, thus noisy????

I understand that all BC GV CL rooms do have full balconies though....can someone clarify this???

There's just me and DH going this year, both daughters have grown up now and we are visiting eldest who will be working at WDW during the summer. We really don't want to spend much time in the parks as we've been doing that for 20+ years but just want a nice resort to relax in. We have stayed at BCVs before in a 2 bedroom unit and loved the BC resort. We know are trying to decide if we should go for a studio at BVCs or get a standard room in the BC, is there much difference? I have costed it and they are both coming out with the same price .

A standard room will give you two queen beds. Almost all the studios have one queen bed and a sofa sleeper. The studio also has a microwave, which the room does not. The standard room is a little nicer room. It is what we prefer. But if the idea of a sofa bed and microwave appeal to you, then go for the studio.
