^^^^^^^^ This, please. I would like to know to know also, bc we have booked a YC CL GV room in Sept. I am assuming it will be on the 5th floor, but wondering what our potential views are besides the wedding gazebo???

If only all decisions were this pleasant We've gone back and forth and forth and back and all around lake (crescent) and I guess we've decided on the YC
So, all you kind and understanding experts - my current question is should I make a floor request? We're booking garden view, so my first request is gazebo view but beyond that is higher better or is that just a personal preference and they're all the same...
Thanks everyone! Can't wait to officially change my ticker!

Not sure if I should stick with standard view or go with garden view. Where is the snack room in relation to the lobby, and are the garden view rooms closer to the snack room? Also, I am still reading through these posts, so forgive my next question if it is already posted somewhere. Does anyone have a copy of the CL menu? The IPO at the POLY was able to send me one, so I figure someone will have it.
Hello! We've stayed both CL and non-CL at BC many times, so maybe I can help a little. First, we think there are a ton of breakfast options in and around BC. When we stay non-CL and need something really quick, we stock up on bagels, donuts, pop tarts, cereal, milk, juice and fruit from BC Marketplace in the grocery section. If we need CS for breakfast, we usually head over to BC Marketplace. (We even go to BC Marketplace when staying at other Epcot area resorts.) We liked the old breakfast menu, we like the new breakfast menu, and we like the selection of bakery items. We've also enjoyed breakfast at Picabu, just a few minutes away with a very full breakfast menu. And we often stop for breakfast at the Boardwalk Bakery on the way to DHS.

But we do like CL at BC. BC Marketplace offers more in terms of breakfast selection than the club lounge, but the club lounge is usually more convenient for us. I think Dee has a list of typical CL food offerings on the front page, but for breakfast it's usually fruit, bagels, pastries, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, juice, coffee, etc. All of those items (other than the hard boiled eggs) are available at BC Marketplace, which also offers the breakfast sandwich with potato casserole, the breakfast platter and a variety of groceries. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3007564 I haven't seen menus for BC CL or BWI CL (we've stayed at both,) but I know others have posted a Poly menu before, so maybe the IPOs for each operate differently.

Most of the CL rooms are on the 5th floor, but the suites and deluxe rooms are located in other areas of the resort. In addition to regular rooms, we've stayed in a deluxe room and a 2-bedroom suite at BC and didn't mind the walk to the lounge. To get to the lounge and the CL rooms, just take the elevator from the lobby to the 5th floor (need your CL key for that) and the lounge is right there. Makes it VERY easy to grab breakfast in the lounge and head to the bus/boat launch.

And if you can get a garden view room, I'd definitely book it! It's usually just a few dollars more per night and helps you avoid any rooftop/concrete views. I think the garden view rooms are a great value.

Silly question for you...is there a door that separates the bathroom sinks from the rest of the room? We've only stayed at a mod before and there was just a curtain. I'm asking because I was wondering if I need to get my husband some ear plugs and one of those eye masks things so we don't bother him while we are getting ready. He gets a little cranky when he gets woken up too early in the morning

There is a door that closes off the toilet and tub area, but the sink area does not have a door.

There is a wall that comes out a bit to separate the sink area from the rest of the room. This helps difuse some of the light and sound, but there is no door to complete block things.

No door (or curtain) between the sinks and the room at YC. We've never stayed at BC, but the rooms are laid out pretty much the same, so I'm guessing no there as well. The only door is between the sink area and the toilet and tub/shower.

So excited to be joining this thread because it means I will actually be staying at the Yacht Club in August!!! Just got my confirmation on a super deal that could not be passed up.

I don't think I am even going to tell my boys about SAB, just surprise them. They are going to LOVE it! They are pool/ cool slide obsessed.

Never visited and haven't even been near the Boardwalk area since 1998 when it was pretty new. So I now have to go back and read this whole thread! Pirate cruises, shipwrecks and secret doors...oh my!

As others have said - no curtain, but usually tucked around a corner. Looks like this at YC:





And this at BC:





So while the noise is still a factor, we find the light isn't as much of a factor at YC/BC as at a mod.

For example, here's POFQ, with the sinks at the end of the room:



So the light goes straight into the room where the beds are located at most mods. But at YC/BC, the sinks are around the corner, so a little more tucked away. In this YC photo, I'm standing with my back to the balcony and the bathroom sinks are at the opposite end of the room, around the corner from the artwork hanging on the far wall:

Checked in to BC yesterday! Booked CL GV and requested a day bed. Forgot to ask abour request or room type when we checked in (too busy sipping pinot noir and eating seared tuna and bacon wrapped scallops) so was thrilled to see a great view of SAB and the lagoon. Stand only balcony but wide enough for several of us. We also have a day bed. When we had a Deluxe CL room last trip, the day bed was basically made up into a bed, but this day bed actually has a mattress (already withe sheets) sort of built into the back. You pull a handle thing and it all flips into place. Cool and comfy. No complaints fromDS.

Ate at Hacienda last night and loved it. They are not afraid of spice or flavor. Nice usual breakfast in CL lounge and fantaatic lunch at Tangerine Cafe which Id been wanting to try for years. Now chilling in the room before dinner at Flying Fish using our new Tables in Wonderland card!

Thanks for the pictures pixarmom! Hadn't seen any from that view. I see what you mean about it being tucked behind. I think DH will survive . Have a great evening!

Excellent photo tour PixarMom!

You captured what I was trying to explain. Nice to have the comparison photo from a mod.
