Also, I believe that Couchy said that her GV room at YC was a quiet pool view. If these rooms are in fact considered GV rooms then they are a really lovely choice.

Just went down to get my morning tea in the YC lobby and the new mug program started today... Of course they let me use the one I already purchased but starting today only the new mugs are for sale. They are the save as the old ones except in new color lids and handles.

Thanks!
The best way to get to the villas pool is to walk in the main entrance of the BCV's and walk straight through that lovely sitting room, it kind of looks like a library, and through the double glass doors to the pool. It is a lovely pool and we really enjoy it there when SAB gets crazy busy.

I would agree that the route to the BC pool is very well marked with signs along the way. Yesterday we were looking for SAB and followed the signs for the pool, mistakenly thinking it would take us to SAB. Oops! Anyway, there were clear signs that said "beach club pool" along the whole route. It is too convoluted to explain the route but basically you are following the outline of the building and it is a long way from the lobby.

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.
Yes, there is a staircase at the secret entrance. It is a fire door and all of those exit doors have staircases. We used them all the time.

As far as balconies go, the end of the BC that has that exit, near room 1501, is only three floors tall and has a weird layout. As you can see from the pictures, the second floor rooms have standing balconies.



Those corner rooms are deluxe rooms.

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.

They could try asking the question over in the DVC forum. They might know the answer to that question over there.

You've answered one of the biggest questions (after Magicbands) we've had lately! I'm a little bummed we've come and gone, because I would have liked new colors.

I wanted to know if YC had a pumpkin carving contest for the CMs? I had stayed at AoA last year in October & they had it there. It was so adorable & the pumpkins were really creative.

Can anyone currently staying at the BC check if the new mugs have started there yet? Thanks

Question

I've just been reading through the list of room amenities and wondered do all rooms have Robes or only those that are designated as CL? We had robes last year in our room 4137 with King Bed so would this be used as a CL room on occasion?

Great! Just in time for our trip!!

Is this the mugs with the RFID tags? And is the refill station operating? And if so, what is offered through the refill station? Soda, juice, coffee? Sorry for so many questions!

I am sure others are going to ask: what colors?

Thanks!

At the present time I only have the certificate that I have to trade in for my AP at one of the Guest Services. Will I get a Magic Band there or can I order a Band and have it activated when I get at the park (along with my certificate)??? Just want to get a Magic Band (can you tell)

During F&W it's used for The Party for the Senses. It's a wonderful event.
