Just one update for our trip...we upgrade to water lagoon/pool view!!!!

Normally we don't mind what the view would be, but since my challenges with sleep are not getting any better I need a place to sit (full balcony requested) so I don't wake everyone up.

Right now I am biting my nails that this rain stops!!!! Kids already missed one day of school. DS13s graduation date is the evening of June 4th (before closed day for flooding) and we fly out the morning of June 6th. I thought I was in the clear after the major snow was done.

Here's our view:



Oh! And we were Family of the Day!

And....the shower heads look like this...(for the PP who asked)

And the beers in the CL lounge are Heineken, Bud Light, Sam Summer, and Yeungling.

We do think the YC is a beautiful resort!!

More to come later!
Mousemommy- we were staying very near where you are! We were on the 3rd floor, just a little further down. Beautiful, isn't it?!

What would you do??

Hi all you YC/BC fans! Ok heres the question...

I currently have a DVC ressie for Sept 2013.. I am bringing DH for the first time to Disney and staying at BC! I have been thinking lately to possibly change to YC or BC CL (not DVC) as I want to WOW him with Disney!! I figured I would check out what the bounce back is when I am staying at BLT this week... if the deal is good and available I would book room only... PROBLEM is IF I do this the points that I used for the Sept ressie would need to be used by 9/30/13... I can't fit another trip in before then.. so I would have to rent the reservation that I have on points, I've never done that before... anyone here DVC that has rented a reservation before?? I checked out the rent dvc points thread and it looks easy enough, but thought I'd ask fellow BC/YC DVC owners on here if they have experience.

So what would you do if you had this decision to make?!?!

Thanks for your advice!!

I'm not a coffee drinker either, but I have to say I love those mocha frappacinos. Hopefully we will be able to find one. I will report back.

Not sure when your trip dates are but some speculation is that Starbucks will be opening inside the Main Street Bakery around mid-May (May 18th). I have also seen that the expected reopening isn't until June. But just thought I would pass that along.

That would be great. We arrive 5/17. I thought I had read the June date also....keeping my fingers crossed for 5/18. We have always been able to get a frappacino at the Main Street Bakery at Disneyland, however they recently did some refurbishment and turned the bakery back to a restaurant (like it was about 20 years ago). They are now turning a different location on Main Street to a Starbucks. I think it is going to be a blast looking for the similarities and differences between WDW and DLR.

Thanks for the info.

I've only been on the renter side of renting. There is risk involved on both sides. I would pose your question on the DVC boards here in DISBoards.

If I were you, I would keep the reservation. You've already made it and the Beach Club is amazing in and of itself. We always stay in the villas. Sure I would like to stay Club Level just once, but considering how inexpensive the villas are for us, it won't happen for years.

Wow him with the <5 minute walk to the World Showcase. For the present and quite a few presents to come... I MUST live vicariously through others on this thread.

If you want a crib, I would add it to my reservation.

Have a great trip.

Thank you so much for your responses. Now I am wondering if I should stick with the pack n play or change the request to a crib. DD will be 9 months and she sleeps in a crib at home but when we went away before she slept in the pack n play but that was only three nights. Decisions decision...

Thanks Sue! See heres the problem... I have done CL so many times and I LOVE it!! I love the pampering... not to say I don't enjoy DVC, but I really am trying to sell him on Disney so he'll come with me again!! DD says just keep what we have so he sees what we really have!! This same DD is currently in the CL at AKL... I opted for BCV with him specifically because of the location to EPCOT. Anyway we'll see.. if the deal is there and good I can always put the deposit down and then see if I can rent out the points after all it is BCV in Sept hot reservation to have!!!

Thanks again for your thoughts!

I love the 1BRs at BCV. I think there's a major wow factor when you walk in and see the living room, full kitchen, washer/dryer and bathroom with two sinks and a whirlpool tub and a big walk-in shower.

I have never stayed CL at WDW. I stayed CL at two of the Universal Orlando hotels, and at the Hilton in Chicago.

If you stay CL, when you leave the lounge, you're just going to a regular hotel room. A very nice hotel room, but still just a regular room.

If I wanted to impress someone, I would get a 1 BR at BCV rather than CL at Beach Club or Yacht Club (assuming I had enough points).

If I didn't have enough points for a 1 BR and had to choose between a studio at BCV and CL at Yacht or Beach Club, I'd do the CL if impressing the person was my only goal. The studios are perfectly nice, but there's no wow factor.

This is just my own personal opinion. I know many people love CL. I only stayed CL because I was going for conferences and I knew I would want to hang out in the lounge when I needed a break from the conferences.

I've never rented my points. I would probably use David's Vacation Club Rentals because I wouldn't want to have to worry about setting up the rental, having a financial transaction with a stranger, etc. You get less money per point with David's, but they earn that money by acting as middle man. The website is:

Hope this helps.

Thanks Best Aunt! The reservation is for a studio and doesn't meet the point requirement for Davids.

Anyway we'll see time will tell what I do!!

Thanks again!

We ate at B&C (the No Way Jose was well worth the calories!), Hurricane Hanna's, and Cape May for breakfast- the characters were great, and the food was very good. We only made it to SAB one afternoon, but the kids loved it. We also stumbled upon the campfire and roasted marshmallows one night (someone asked about the time, I think it was about 6:30). Hopefully I can find time to post a trip report, but it may be awhile- reality is setting in hard now that we're back. Oh well, guess that means I need to plan the next trip!
Sounds great! Can't wait for our Aug Trip to YC. Hope I get a room upgrade

I have those dreams too you just never know if or when that may happen!

On our last morning in September 2012 they asked us if we wanted to be family of the day. It was in the morning and they said they would drive us where we wanted to go! It was pretty cool.

Sounds like you've made up your mind about CL but be careful with renting or selling your points. It's too bad you can't go thru David's. as mentioned, there is a bit of trust both ways in these transactions. Best of luck that you can get it done easily. And safely. CL certainly will wow him

And, BTW, I think I saw you in the club lounge on Friday! I recognized you from your pictures. I was sitting in the lounge with my husband, and I saw you and your husband getting your food. I said, "There's Mousemommy1, there's Mousemommy1!", at which point my husband thought I had turned into some kind of loon. But, then I told him that I recognized you from this thread and that when you sat down I was going to say hi. But, then, I looked up and you were gone! I snuck out into the hallway to see where you had gone...and I saw that you were taking your food back to your room. I just missed you before you closed your door And, I didn't want to knock on your door in case it wasn't you after all...boy that would have been awkward!

So, anyway, I think it was you...and based on the room view pics you posted I think it was, because that's about where I thought your room was!

So, hello from afar! Hope you are having a great time and enjoy that view!!!

And, you beat me in posting those shower head pics. Now, what am I going to do with 5 close-up pics of a shower head??

Awwwww!!! Yeah, I was probably making a quick escape before my kids could knock a plate out of someone's hands!!

Oh, and I happened to log onto MDE today and it confirmed that we are in a lagoon View room!! Hooray for pixie dust!!!

Are you home now?? If so, hope you had a fantastic trip!!!
