That's me too. Only I don't ask him what he wants to bring. I just pack it!!! My hubby knows when I'm in full on packing mode it's best not to get in my way or to get into my line of vision. 31 days!!!

YC: Shaded balcony in the Afternoon

Good morning friends!

I found this question on the resort boards.

We want a lower-floor room w/shaded balcony in the afternoon. The most important part of the request is shaded balcony.

We've booked garden-view room. Assuming room request granted, where in the resort would we find ourselves?

Can this room request be accommodated and still be close the lobby area?

Looking forward to our July trip

How soon is your trip? Have you done the online checkin? I suggest that you don't and you discuss your request when you are checking in- ask the CM where your room is located.

I am going to post this on the FAQ board to see if the folks over there have any input about what your best chance and way to word your request will be.

Dee

I am very directionally challenged. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so I think this poster wants an east facing balcony, right?

I do know that Epcot/Mexico is EAST of the resort
(Teena, do you remember why I know that- answer in the next post)

So would it make sense to the room assignor to phrase the request like this:

"Shaded balcony (no afternoon sun), please. Lower floor if possible" or

"Room facing east/towards EPCOT, please. Lower floor if possible"

YC GV peeps- have you had a room with afternoon shade? Where was it?

Why do I know that EPCOT is EAST of the Beach Club?

During my very first trip to the Beach Club, when I met Teena, there was a space shuttle launch scheduled for the night we arrived. That launch was scrubbed due to weather, but Teena told us when it was rescheduled and that we could see it by looking to the east (towards Mexico in EPCOT). We happened to have dinner at Le Cellier that night, and our checkin was just a few minutes after the launch, so we watched from Canada as the shuttle lifted off right before our dinner that night.

As Teena said, the Marketplace is where you can get coffee and other refill beverages. I believe it is open at 6:30 for drinks, then 7 am for breakfast items. Closes at 11 pm.

There is also real, brewed coffee available at the Ale & Compass at the Yacht Club in the mornings. There is information about that on Page 1, Post 14 (Other Useful Info). That is another refill station in the morning and has Continental Breakfast items like pastry and fruit.

I believe I remember somebody, maybe Teena indicating that it's hard to tell the brand etc. because mattresses get replaced all of the time.

They have the info in the hotel packet and says that it can be ordered thru the Disney Resort Collection. When going to the website indicated it redirects you to the Disney site to purchase theme park merchandise and no where can I find the resort products of any kind that are featured in the hotel packet.

To make it a little more convoluted - I took down the name on the mattress- Sealy Encore CSS Plush, which is different than what is listed in the packet. I have found both the Encore and the ones in the packet on-line at a variety of websites- so they are different Sealy models and still available. I also have the model number and have inquired with the companies and waiting for a response.

Finally to my question... the Encore CSS Plush also comes with a pillow top. I don't know if I didn't write this down or if it was not a pillow top. I can't remember what it looked like - should have taken a picture. We were BC CL- 5706. Can anyone tell me if they have an Encore mattress in their room and if it has a pillow top? The model number that I wrote down was #503156.

I know this is a bit crazy but hubby has a bad back and he really liked it - made his back feel great the whole week! Nothing we have found locally has seemed to do the trick after a lot of looking.
This is a longshot of a question.

I wonder if you would have any success by emailing IPO to see if they could find out for you. Or to contact one of the club level CMs that you met during your trip. Perhaps they could check with housekeeping to see what is in that room.

Good luck!

Thanks Dee! I will miss not staying at Y&BC but in addition to visiting with Teena (and Pete!), I plan to get a Sunken Treasure, maybe dine there once or twice and do a little shopping!

YC GV peeps- have you had a room with afternoon shade? Where was it?
I'm terrible with my directionality also, but think you are right in your direction-ness.
As for the covered part, due to the architecture of YC, all the rooms have covered balconies/patios, and in fact, some of them (like our room in April) have an awning as well.

Based on your description, you must be right next to the suite we were in last summer! Ah, memories! Ioved the peacefulness of BC in that view, but a bit beyond, all the glittery lights of the BoardWalk. *sigh*

Just wanted to share. Finished paying off both CL rooms for September last night! Now I just need to pay off the Villa. The trip seems more real now. I am so excited to be going to the Beach Club and sharing it with my family. I can't wait to play with my grandsons in SAB.
