Hello All! We will be staying at BC post Fantasy to celebrate our 15th Anniversary and my 4-0! We were originally booked at POR, but upgraded yesterday due to the promotion to a GV room. It will be me (Anne), DH(41), DS(9), DD(8), and DS(6). We're EXTREMELY excited to be at the BC and will be there June 22-26.

Two questions: what should I request and are there change facilities that we can utilize on the 26th since our flight doesn't leave until 5:15 pm? TIA

Can't tell you what to request ... do you want close to lobby, close to Epcot, full balcony, first floor, etc.???

Absolutely, you can use the health club to shower and change. Bell Services will hold your carry-ons and you can get to your luggage as much as you want prior to leaving.

Got our 30 day email from Disney itinerary planners. Getting excited! Thanks to all for their quick service meal suggestions. Only family consensus right now is the consumption of Dole whip!

Thanks TeenaS. Which would you recommend: first floor or full balcony? We're planning a low key trip with one day at Epcot and one day at HS so we can enjoy 2.5 days at the BC pool. TIA!

Guess what i'll be buying this year

If I can get my sister to get her on an earlier flight, she can arrive in Toronto at 1 pm and we can all get the 3:30 flight to Orlando. She will be unaccompanied on that one leg but I should be able to meet her at the gate if we are on an earlier flight in to Toronto. Is this madness???
I just had a thought on this. Make sure everyone understands how/when you go through US customs, since you do "enter the US" at the Toronto airport.

I assume each of your first leg flights will land in "Canada" at the Toronto airport, and you will then have to pick up your luggage to carry it to US customs. If so, you want her to understand what she needs to do after she lands. If you both "enter the US" at your originating airport, this won't be an issue.

This also has implications for when you put your ME mickey stickers on the luggage. Do you do that at the originating airport or when you transfer in Toronto.

iPod Compatible Alarm Clock?

We arrive at BC on 4/21. Trying to determine if I need to pack a speaker for our Ipod. Can someone confirm if the alarm clock in the rooms allow for iPod docking?

Thank You

Potential dumb?

Once you check out...can you still use SAB that day?

We are doing a DVC/SSR split stay with YC on the front end, RD at MK on "switch" day, but don't plan on staying there until official check in time and frankly, would rather use SAB one last time if possible.

also any garden view pics around?

Thanks!

Still hopelessly behind!!! If you are a new friend who has posted since page 145, I still need to give you an official howdy, but to try to prevent digging myself deeper, I'm going to stay caught up from here.

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list. Sounds like you have some great plans to celebrate a couple of important occasions!



If you request first floor you should get a patio, and you would be close to either the lobby/buses/Stormalong Bay Or you could be close to the entrance to the World Showcase at EPCOT. About 50% of the rooms at the Beach Club have full balconies. The rest have standing balconies. So I would think a request for first floor gives you a much better chance for some outdoor space. But you may also be near pathways and have a little less privacy (anyone care to comment/confirm or deny this about first floor rooms?)

Thank You
to this thread and to the DIS!

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



Here is a picture of the clock radio in the rooms. I believe these are ipod docks/speakers, but since I am a Zune user, I don't know this for sure.

If you would like to be added to the Be Our Guest, please let us know the dates for your trip.




You can totally use SAB on checkout day! Bell services can store anything you need them to and you can use the health club lockers and showers to change and freshen up when you are done.

I am trying to collect views from YC and BC club rooms in a thread in the resort photo subforum. The GV rooms at the Yacht Club can be wedding gazebo or the back (lake-side) entrance to the Yacht Club. Not sure if there are some other GV rooms overlooking anything else.

This is from the FAQ post on Page 1 of this thread:

What will the view from my room be?

Effective with reservations on January 1, 2011, the view categories at the Beach and Yacht Clubs were reclassified into 3 booking categories:

Standard view- parking lot or rooftops
Garden view- something green- trees or courtyard
Lagoon or Water view- lake or pool


I 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.

Hi,

BC questions.

We have requested a room with a daybed, if we get one, does the hotel provide bed rails? I have seen a picture with one on but not sure if that person brought their own.

Also, can anyone tell me if there are any ground floor patio rooms that are on the front of the building, this would be towards the car park??
I was going to request a ground floor( is this also called 1st floor in the US?) but didn't want to risk having a room at the front on the ground, they look much nicer on the back side of the BC.

Hope you understand me!!!!

Thanks
