Also, a friend of mine is staying off property (Bonnet Creek), they have AP's, will they be allowed to get Magic Bands and make FP reservations? I know not now, but in the future (they are going in Feb). What do you think??

I believe that AP holders will eventually be able to get MBs and use FP+

It seems that in the current test it is only people selected at the specific resorts that have valid park admission, but APs can be used as that

It is the World Showcase Events Pavilion. They use it for special events. We have been in there a few times. One of them was when they held a dinner for the runners the night before the marathon. I was never at F&W, but I'm sure someone who has been there can fill you in, if they happen by, that is.

Every time I try to log in on my iPod, the app closes, so I can only reply on my phone. So.... I will keep it brief. Checked in today. This resort is LOVELY. We are so happy here.

Can you please make some changes to the Be Our Guest list? Due to more family coming, discounts and adding a day, DH and I will be staying at Beach Club now (instead of YC) October 18-25th. My parents will be at YC 19-23!

We've stayed at BC twice before, and would like a room near the secret entrance. My question is - are there stairs at that secret entrance? We're staying LV, but I'd prefer not to be on the first floor. We'd also like a full balcony, so does anyone know if that exists near the secret entrance for LV? Thanks so much, my head is spinning as we make all these changes!
Will do!

Bumping up the second part of your question... I think others have posted that there are stairs convenient to the secret entrance end of the resort- can someone confirm?

Does anyone know if there are some lagoon view rooms with full balcony in that general area? My best guess is that in the hallway that runs between the Marketplace and the Secret Exit, you would find a room of that description.

I just love the envelopes DD did so much, I had to post one more time ...
Thank you so much for the pictures!!! Like you said, the YC deluxe room pictures have been very hard to come by!!!

I would so appreciate it if you could either post these to the Deluxe Room thread (I'll get the link in a minute) or if you could email these pictures to me:

Yacht Club Deluxe, Suites, VP and Presidential Rooms


Merci!




The artwork on those envelopes is fantastic! I bet your daughter was really proud to leave them each day!

Not sure if anyone will know the answer to this. If you don't see a response in a day or two- try reposting your question.

Do you have any upcoming trip or did you recently return? I wonder if housekeeping would be able to get the answer for you during a trip? Not sure how to get in touch with them from home, though.

Good luck.

Well I found a great agency deal w/ a TA & my sister, my nephew & I booked this am a 12/4-12/8 WL trip! Even though it's not my beloved BC/YC, I'm so excited to go again, & try a new resort. The most exciting thing is to be with my nephew for 1st trip & see WDW in his eyes! I feel very blessed to go 3x in 2013!!
That is great news!

Quiet Pools

I have never really seen any of the 3 quiet pools. I would like to try to provide directions or instructions about how to get there, particularly if there is a way to describe the best access door to them from within the buildings.

Room numbers seem to be a good way to describe locations at the resort since the hallways are usually well marked with signs to follow.


Yacht Club quiet pool- close to Swan/Dolphin end of resort

Beach Club quiet pool- near EPCOT end of resort

Beach Club Villa Quiet Pool (Dunes Cove)-???


Thanks!

I don't know how much this helps, but we used the YC's quiet pool (I believe called the Admiral's Pool) in April when SAB was shut down unexpectedly, and it was a delight. It was so quiet, and really, really relaxing. I can't give you room numbers, but I found it easier to come by than the BC quiet pool. Just walk past the bell station and elevators off the lobby, past Fittings and Farings, and the signs are very, very helpful.

At BC, I often find the secret Epcot exit such a tedious walk, that we use the quiet pool as our Epcot shortcut. While it's more convoluted to find than the YC pool, it's still very well signed, and if you follow the signs, and just walk out towards the walkway, you're almost all the way to the bridge to Epcot.
