Thanks in advance
Dd and I stayed there in April. We were on the backside of the building and had a view of a small lake. You could see the turtles swim! The other side you could see the main lake, or grounds . I went to google maps and bing maps and looked around so I knew what to expect. Bus stop1 was really convenient and we really enjoyed the lounge. Enjoy!

This is the view standing in front of Cabanas 9B with the building behind me. This was such a great room location!

This was the view from our room, ground floor on the back side of the building.

And this one is from the front side, looking across to the rest of the Cabanas buildings.

There's not a parking lot immediately adjacent to 9B so I don't think there are really any bad views. You have the main lake on one side, a garden and 9A on another, the smaller lake on the back side, and landscaping and El Centro on the last. And the whole Cabanas section is so lush that no matter where you look it is green and very tropical feeling.

This one is looking at 9B from the path to El Centro.

Thank you so very much for your quick replies ! I am so excited for this trip and the wait is going to be so worth it. I'm sold on BC and luckily so is DH.

Appreciate all your thoughtful replies!

We just checked in today and they have us a room in 9B. Does that mean we have access to the lounge? They didn't mention it to my husband (long story--there was a problem with our first room and we had to move). If so where is the lounge and how do we access it?

It accesses with your room key. Also located first floor on side facing lake.

It is called cocomino cove.

If your key works than you should be good

Which rooms are closer to the main building-Preferred or Business Class?

Do they have newspapers in the BC lounge? Thanks!

The preferred are close to main building about the same distance as BC. For me the big difference is that BC was much closer to the Dig Site. I think there were papers in the the lounge and there were TV's too. Go to the CSR thread on the first page is a video of the lounge.

The BC is really close to bus stop 1 and we never had to stand even though it was last stop and it was Easter week too!

Also, when I had preferred, I was in bldg 3 facing bldg 4. Far, compared to the bldg of BC.

Lovely pics.
The paranoid side of me wonders if there are any alligators in those ponds! Maybe I should switch to a second floor room (assuming gators can't climb stairs!)

If you didn't book Business Class you don't have access to the lounge. If 9B isn't fully booked they will sometimes give out those rooms, but not lounge access.

I'd still try. But that's just me.
