I left a note for housekeeping, asking for extra coffee, and they have me enough pods for at least a dozen cups. You can call housekeeping to ask for it, too. There will be two pods of regular coffee and two of decaf when you check in. And they replenish it everyday. If you want more you'll have to ask for it.

Melitta makes the pods/ Our Walmart carries them.

Not sure if posting a link is ok or not but here goes: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Melitta-Me...-18ct/20525198

So, I just received an email from the BC Club Level IP team, asking for my arrival info and room requests. We are booked for Garden View Club level room in August....does anyone know if any of the rooms that overlook SAB are classified as Garden View? You know, if one or two rooms don't have the best water views they might be classified as GV?? I have stayed in a lagoon view CL room once that was over the pool and I found the noise to be distracting, and would like to overlook the back entrance or the other side. Just not sure if I should even bother requesting that if GV rooms aren't located there.

Anyone know or can make a guess?

I did not know this! I'm heading to the BC for a quick trip with my Mom in three weeks, and we are both very early risers and coffee drinkers.....I love to sit outside and watch the sunrise over Epcot, and it is so hard to find a coffee that early! I will be sure to buy some and bring them. I like Melitta coffee. Thanks!

You're welcome. Glad to be of help. tip: The bag of pods is "poofed up" with air, so to save space in suitcase, just before we leave, I put a little hole in the bag and squeeze out the extra air.

So, do we leave something personal, more than a towel, on the chair? It's hard to believe people have the balls (apologies if offended) to hold a chair on the way to a park.
Hi db57me

There is no need for you to be concerned about the two chairs because you and wifey are actually at the pool using them as opposed to the Piggys that drop a towel and run off to a theme park for HOURS.

Saving a chair next to your wife is perfectly acceptable and even encouraged in some marriages

We are only referring to the large volumes of people who will try to save chairs without even being AT THE POOL for most of the day.

To make an analogy, it's like going to the Magic Kingdom early one morning and RUNNING to Columbia Harbor House Quick Service restaurant to throw empty trays on a table that you will not return to until lunch time.

So find those two chairs together and plop your significant other on one and then hop in the pool and enjoy. If you come back to the chair and a hunky life guard is sitting in it next to your wife talking about the "weather" just know that your wife will probably tell you to go back in the pool and she will never want to stay any where else again!

We are going to BC for our 20th anniversary and upgraded to club level after reading all the great reviews. I see there will be construction. We are going from 9/10-9/17. Should I change to Yacht Club or stay at BC? I contacted them and they said they have no dates yet for construction. Any suggestions? We requested a room with a king bed and balcony. Doubt I will get both but its worth a shot.

I'll be staying at the YC in September. I plan on booking a Swedish massage for my boyfriend for his birthday. Any reviews on the salon?

BC/YC made this blog for top smells at Disney, and a recommended candle that replicates the scent!
