Glad you are excited. That's the kind of room I'd never pay for...enjoy it!

There isn't anything likethatfor her age at WDW though, right? I would feel fine having her stay in the room and rent a movie, but that is boring. What else can she do there? Is it safe for her to roam the resort alone? Should i just have her stay in the room? DH and I will probably go to DHS for date night.
There isn't anything like that provided at the resorts. They do have the campfire and movies under the stars, which is fun (look on pg.1 of the thread for some info). How comfortable you feel with your DD14 wandering the resort or attending the movies at the beach on her own is your call, and hers! Otherwise, I think one night chilling at your resort room won't be all too bad, IMO.

Wow! Moved again. It seems I'm always putting in a new bookmark for this thread. I guess I'd better get rid of the two old ones, LOL. Still counting down until our summer stay, but we may have to change plans due to job situations. Crossing my fingers and praying that things work out. I need a little Disney this summer!!!

Dee, Great job!! I really appreciate this thread and enjoy all of the people involved. I was so happy to meet some of those people last year when we stayed at the BC and was able to stop by the meet. I'm looking forward to visiting the thread each day until our trip and our stay at the BC in August!!

Oh thank goodness I made it to the new thread! It was touch and go for a while, like giving birth, lol. I wasn't "logged in" (because I usually am on my iPhone) and so I didn't have a subscribe option. All better now! ;0)

Thanks!
Hello! We were there at the end of January/beginning of February and I posted a photo on our last thread of the sign at SAB with hours listed. As you can see from the photo, the part with the hours is detachable. So for our most recent BC/YC stays (and when we had access to SAB due to the BWI pool closure!) . . .

2013 - January/February: closed at 8pm
2012 - October: closed at 10pm
2012 - April: closed at 10pm
2011 - August: closed at either 10pm or 11pm
2011 - February: closed at 8pm
2010 - July: closed at 11pm
2010 - March: closed at 10pm

Sorry, don't know about September specifically, but those closing times are still changing!

Have a wonderful trip. We love WL. The boat to MK is fun, and we love wandering around WL. So many hidden nooks to relax in! Last stay there we were lucky enough to be a flag family.

Hey everyone, thanks for the kind words and imaginary drinks!

Sorry, Ninja Mom, there are not enough bellhops at BC (or even the World) to move over your baggage!

We are a fast moving thread, but things should slow down in the next day or two here after everyone has reported for duty on the new thread.

I'll pencil you in on the Be Our Guest list. You can let me know if anything changes.

I did notice that our arrival date is off by a couple days, no big deal, though! We are due to arrive on May 25 as long as they don't make us have Saturday school to make up for all the crazy snow days we've been having!

Thanks to everyone for the smiles and laughs you provide on a regular basis!! I just love it here!
I'll make the change.

Sounds like a really magical split stay! I'll pencil you in on the list.

Anyway, just flipping through the pics in the thread and soooooo excited to head back to BC!
back!

I'll update your dates.

We booked a garden view room, but haven't made any requests yet.


I'll add you to the list. You will love the convenience to the World Showcase!

My recommendation is to request a full balcony, along with any other location requests you may have.

I can't say I'm not a little disappointed as I've had my heart set on BC, but the resort will always be there, and now I get a free chance to experience club level . I hope all who have an upcoming trip have a wonderful time! Many thanks to Dee and all of the fabulous people who contribute to this board. I'm now off to research WL CL!
So sorry to hear you got bumped, but it sounds like you are making the best of it. I'm glad you will be experiencing club level. Happy researching and if you get a chance when you are back, let us know how the trip was.

Have a great trip and hope you come back to visit us here soon!

Bumping up a few things from the old thread

Mind you, we stayed in a Deluxe Room, Club level, so I can't speak for the typical BC room, but the in-room safe is exactly as you described. The size made it useless to us as we were hoping to store our iPads and they were too large for the safe. Additionally, the safe does have a key closure, rather than a combination which wasn't ideal to us either. I'm hoping that the safes will eventually be switched out because they are just archaic and inconvenient.

With that said, our stay was amazing and the resort overall is just a joy to visit. My kids were so sad to leave and I'm already feeling like I need to go back sooner rather than later.
Glad you had a great trip!

I think I will revise my "will it fit" info and indicate that there may be different safe sizes throughout the resort.

Do you mind sharing your room number? Any chance you have pictures to add to the BC Deluxe Room Thread?

I'm a-DRESSING anyone who has been to the BC/YC recently or is going soon. Could you lettuce know what the salad situation is at The Marketplace and Hurricane Hanna's

(despite the really bad puns, this is a serious request)

Not sure, but I know some of the YC CL SV rooms have a MK fireworks view. See Janetmom's Trip report for details and a sample of the view from this category. The TR is linked at the bottom of the first post on Page 1.
