I think if you were on a low floor the roof may not be as appealing.
That's really good to hear! Thank you for posting this.

If you are going in September, after schools countrywide are back in session, the pool should be even less crowded.
Thanks, good to know.

We are at 61 days now. Can I start to get excited yet? DJ would rather do poly but doesn't want to pay morethan we already are. Its the food he thinks is better but I am going to surprise him with park hopper so we can just go to Epcot and have a gazillion choices. Well, you know what I mean. Our dates are 8/31-9/7. I booked GV and the kids said they wanted to be closer to SAB. Last time at BC we were in 2606 which was a huge room on the corner with a humongous balcony.

We always book SV or Gv and love the GV rooms near Epcot. It is nice and out of the way, shady in the afternoon, and closer to the Epcot entrance. We've also had free upgrades to lagoon view many times. I personally won't pay for the more expensive view, since we spend so much time out of the room anyway.

My boyfriend and I will be staying at Disney's Beach Club this week. His key will be available for charging and mine will not. For this reason we are wondering if we would both be able to receive wristbands and gain access to Stormalong Bay on my card. Because we are a couple and are obviously staying at the same resort I don't think that there should be much question. I expect most of you to encourage us to bring both cards, but have any of you experienced success in getting in with only one KTTW card. Also, just curious to how the CMs know that we are staying at BC. Are the keys a different color?

As I posted in the other thread, we have forgotten a KTTW in the room for one of us before and have always been asked to go back and get them. The KTTW have your resort printed on them along with the dates of your stay.

You have to both have your KTTW cards sir SAB access. One card per person, sorry.

Have a great time

We retured home Thursday after a great family trip, We were at BC for the second half of our trip and loved it!!!! Some highlights:

Our only request was connecting rooms (as we have 8 kids ages 4-15) and we booked garden view. I was a little concerned about noise level with indoor hallways. We were assigned connecting rooms on the first floor that had patios facing the woods. We were right next to the laundry room so only had a room/patio on one side of us and we were right next to the "secret entrance" near Epcot. This put us also only a couple of doors away from the door to the quiet pool and also easy to get to the Marketplace.

Our younger kids went to the Sandcastle club and our teenagers did the campfire and movie on the beach while hubby and I had a date night at Shula's and they all begged to do it again!

I had a sunken treasure and wish I had gone back for another before leaving! Yummy! (Did I see that someone here has the recipe??? If so, please share!)

We ate at Beaches and Cream the day we switched over to BC. They told us an hour wait and gave us a buzzer. We sat out by the beach and were buzzed in about 35 minutes. Yummy food and ice cream!!! The kids loved it!

We checked at the concierge desk to see if any Illuminations cruises were available last minute and there was one for the next night. We had a great time, great view and it was so nice not to fight the crowds. I would recommend!!!

Storm-a-long bay was awesome but much too large for my younger kids so we ended up hanging in the sand. While I going to fill my mug, we witnessed a young girl being rescued form the lazy river by a life guard. It was great for my teens but stressed me out for the little ones so we spent more time at the quiet pool.

Loved that BC Marketplace had gluten free snacks for my son!!! Wished they were open later so we could get something when we returned from the parks though as we did the fireworks shows on this half of our trip.

Loved walking to Epcot, and the boat to HS!!!!! Can't say that enough!!! On the flip side, hated the bus to DD. Went on our last day to get souvenir gifts for folks at home before catching the ME back to the airport and really wish we had just hung at the pool.

So glad I was able to use tips I had read on here!!!! Thanks!!!

As others have said, you will each need your KTTW card. It even says this in your check in material. Personally, even if you could bring 1 card for the both of you, I'd advise bringing the card you can charge on. You might find yourselves wanting a drink or ice cream from B&C & needing that room charge. The series of numbers on your KTTW card indicate which resort you are staying at. The CMs know which numbers to look for to tell them if you are staying at their resort.

I can't remember if I mentioned here or another thread...

I've extended our October trip by a day! Unfortunately, there were no YC GV CL rooms available, so I opted for a night at the Poly - somewhere we've both wanted to stay but we haven't been able to break away from what we love
- parents, brother and his gf are coming along for the trip, so we needed the extra night alone!!

Anyways, when I booked, the CM I spoke with told me that the Poly would set up transportation for me over to YC. I have my doubts on whether or not this is true. Does anyone know for sure? I've never done a split stay before, and only heard of having your luggage transported through Disney.
Thanks so much. I love reading this thread everyday. Best one on the boards
