Good to know about TL so thanks for your update.

For SAB, it was after 8 pm for night swims so maybe that was the difference.

Hey! Just picked out my FP+. Woohoo! My only option for MB is gray but someone on a MB thread called IT and they said more colors are uploading.

Thanks everyone!

Thanks Dee for all your hard work here.

Quick answer: A garden view will NOT be a view of a parking lot. It will be a view of something green ... although it definitely could be dense woods and no garden. A true description of the garden view at the BC would be: "View of Something Green that is not a roof."

Hope everybody is having a wonderful time. And I sure hope Rosa's family will have some wonderful non-sick days before heading home. Jay, I'm glad pixie dust hit you and I wish I was there for a family hug!!
Glad to hear you arrived safe & sound!! 105 yikes!!

from YC! Checked in on the 20th. Loving it! On 19th had dinner with our Teena before she left for Vegas. Afternoon breaks at SAB are wonderful!
We've bern in wdw since 17th. Did a little resort hoping
We have our magic bands. They work pretty well, but trying to get on MDE at the parks to look up your FP times or look up wait times, dining, etc sometimes is very frustrating. wifi isn't the best. And I need it to avoid roaming charges.

Today we walked to Epcot, then spent the afternoon at quiet pool doing laundry. At YC quiet pool they only have 3 washers. Totally inadequate especially since 1 was broke.
Tonight we watched the movie on the beach.

There is a section about room requests on Page 1, Post 13- FAQ. What is best for your family may be different from the preferences of other families. Ground floor? Upper floor? Close to lobby/transportation/pool? Away from elevators?

It's hard to imagine staying anywhere else. We visited GF and the Poly (our other resort wish list locations) and they did not feel as comfortable to us as BC.

Now it's off to unpack, do laundry, get the kiddos off to school, then start to sort through the thousands of pics that we took and our photopass pics.

Eventually I hope to get a trip report done.
Thanks for your review! Glad you had a great trip!!!

We were facing the bus stop, which you really cannot see through the trees. Had a view of the roof. Spaceship earth to the right. Could see illuminations to the far right.
Thank you so much for posting these!

Would you mind posting these, along with a room description, on the Room View Thread? Just like you posted here, although if you could post bedding (eg- 2 Queens, no daybed) and general location (far from club lounge) and the fireworks/Spaceship earth info, I would REALLY appreciate it


Beach Club Room Views

I think so, but not entirely sure. Could a few BCV, both cash and whatever the other thing is, let us know if you are participating in the testing?

Thanks!

I have had 6 full days to really get a good feeling and experience the resort. I would def stay here again and my kids are in heaven with SAB.

We have never had any issues whatsoever finding chairs, and after people mentioning how difficult it can be, I was very worried.
We can see fireworks from Illuminations from our balcony.
The walk to Epcot is truly amazing! I mean....2 min walk.

I love everything about this resort except...... Wait for it......

1. The boat to HS. I know, I know...a lot of people love it. I Find it annoying. It seems to take forever, so we opted to walk one time. I wish there was an option for a bus since it has to stop at 2 other resorts. Then again, the bus prob would too.
2. The bus sharing with Swan/Dolphin and then BW. OMG.....the worst is the DTD bus. It takes FOREVER. I don't understand why they have to have just 1 bus. The bus should just be for Yacht and Beach. My DH said he would not stay here again based on the bus sharing. It took us 50 min tonight to get from DTD to BC.
3. The lack of food court options. I know, I said it, but We like the food courts.
4. Our room was not very clean. By initial appearance, it was...and then on day 3 we opened a drawer to find bagels from the previous guest, a dirty bandaid in a corner and a plastic bag under the daybed.
5. That SAB opens at 10am. 10am, really? I know other guests as well were shocked by that. I think it should be earlier.....even 9am, if not sooner. We like early pool time.

All in all, I really do like BC. The smell of the lobby is memorable and the CM are truly beyond nice and welcoming. The location is undeniably the best.
The positives outweigh the negatives for sure. (well, except for that DTD bus)

I am really really happy we stayed here.
Thanks for your review. May I post a link to it on Page 2 of this thread, in the trip report/resort review section?



As far as your dislikes- we are not big fans of the boat either. It gets you there, but is frustrating when you know you can walk there quicker.

I have heard mixed reviews lately on the mousekeeping. Ours was fine in July, but others have reported poor service.

I can understand about missing a food court if you have stayed at other resorts that have them.

Finally, the DTD return buses suck! To this resort and to just about every other resort on property. We either hop through EPCOT via a DTD resort or on our most recent visit we took a cab back to the BC. Best $15 we spent all week!

A lovely start to a satisfying day all around. We popped over to US via taxi those guys and girls at Mears are brilliant even with a nasty accident thismorning they managed to get us to the park for opening! Managed to do all the rudes we wanted to.

Came back after purchasing some neat t-shirts then off to Epcot for dinner at Liberty Inn and back again so Ethan could have some pool time and we chilled out with these frozen babies
WOW!!! Just wow!!!

Thanks so much for the fantastic pictures and for checking in with us with updates on your trip. Glad the visit to US went smoothly!

Recent Guests- Please share your room (view) photos!!! Especially if you stayed Deluxe or one of the suites!


As many of you know, I have separate threads where people can post pictures of the view from their rooms to give future guests an idea of what to expect from the different view categories.

I started up two View Threads in the Resort Photo Subforum:


Beach Club Room Views

Yacht Club Room Views


The purpose of these threads is to give some samples of rooms in various view categories at the Yacht and Beach Clubs.

************************************************** *******

There are also limited pictures available of the Deluxe Rooms and 1 and 2 Bedroom Suites, especially at the Yacht Club. If you have stayed in one of these rooms, your pictures would be a great addition to one of these threads:


Beach Club Deluxe, Suites, VP and Presidential Rooms

Yacht Club Deluxe, Suites, VP and Presidential Rooms


Thanks so much!!!

Sorry, Dee! I guess my post wasn't clear. I meant that I can confirm BCV cash reservations are included in the Sept FP+ test as we are taking part.

Have been able to use my wrist band for all purchases including dinning plan credits for 3 days. At at Ohanas, Chefs de France, and Garden Grill. They scanned my ban at the table. I have not had to get a band at the pool but I'm entering on the YC side. Getting in the parks are easy too. I will have 2 sets if room views for SV club. Moved yesterday. First room was... The only way to put is where you put people you don't want back lol. They had some room leak problems so had to wait to be moved. Talked to a CM yesterday and he said they try to have rooms ready for folks with bands because they know when you are here. Also used bands at magical express.
