We had a free upgrade to a BC deluxe room one time and it was really nice to have that extra space. I think the kids liked it more than we did.
All very good points! I guess it's kind if like upgrading to a water view with added bonus of more space.

Question BCV for non-DVC members

Thanks natebenma for starting the BCV photo thread and Best Aunt for posting additional pics!

Silly (i.e., uninformed) question - is there any downside to staying in BCV if we are not DVC members? Do we lose out on any privileges or amenities?

It will only be our second trip to the World next year and am still trying to learn all the booking/lodging tips.

Thanks!

I haven't stayed in a Deluxe Room, but we do have lots of details about these rooms from other guests who have-

Check out the info on this thread:

There are actually more benefits to staying at the BCV when you book a cash stay through Disney rather than a points stay through the DVC. We always booked a cash stay and we received the same daily housekeeping services, including having the dishes washed daily, that a regular BC resort guest receives. I think the only thing the DVC stay gets is a lower cost for the room.

Hi PolyAddict! I strongly recommend the move to BC deluxe! We've stayed in regular-sized BC rooms, a regular-sized YC room, BC deluxe room and the BC 2-bedroom suite. We love the extra space in the deluxe room. The only negative is the distance from the lounge, but we found the extra space in the room more than compensated for that. And it's even less of an issue for you, since your kids are teens and adults. (When we stayed in a deluxe room, our kids were not yet old enough to go up to the lounge on their own.)

Speaking of the lounge, I've missed recent discussion regarding the renovations. I understand it may happen in June and that the lounge will be located in the Presidential Suite during that time. We'll be in WDW for our youngest son's birthday/Marathon Weekend next year, and he'd like to return to BC. Any information to share regarding the post-renovation BC club lounge?

Thanks! I have a pro/con list going and it seems like the distance and possible noise from quiet pool/hot tub can be an issue. My pro/cons are about equal as it stands right now!

We've stayed around the quiet pool at BC several times during different seasons, and haven't had any difficulty with noise at all. When we overlooked the quiet pool at YC, there was just a little happy noise, but nothing that bothered us!

I leave Thursday for marathon weekend! We are staying just across the water at Boardwalk, but I'm sure I"ll be visiting Beach and Yacht Clubs at some point and will make sure to take pics & post them here. Hope everyone stays warm these next few days!

staying at BCV on cash

If you're staying at BCV on cash, you don't lose out on any privileges or amenities related to the room itself.

DVC members get discounts on some restaurants, tours, etc. We get a 10% discount on all merchandise purchased at locations at WDW that are owned & operated by Disney. We get a discount on the membership fee if we join Owners Locker (they store stuff in the Orlando area so people don't have to bring it back and forth). We get free DVD rentals at the community hall or in the hotel itself if there is no community hall.

We don't get free dining.

We probably have the advantage when it comes to booking rooms. Since BCV is my home resort, I can book there 11 months ahead on points. I don't think you can book 11 months ahead on cash. And there are only so many rooms allocated to cash. Additional rooms only become available if DVC members use their points to book outside the Disney system. So if you want a 2-bedroom with 2 queen beds in the second bedroom at BCV during Food & Wine -- you may find that they are never available to book with cash.

yacht club building room number map

Last time asking, I promise - I am looking for the yacht club building room number map. I know it's very old but it's floated on this forum once or twice lately. I checked the main pages and the only room number map I see is only the 4th and 5th floors and I know I've seen on that had more floors notated on it. As always, ya'll are the best. Thanks!
