    Unfortunately, there is only one set of elevators at the YC, and they are located right by the Concierge desks and the lounge. We've always requested a room away from the lounge and have been lucky enough to get it each time. Unless you are at the very end of a hall, you will hear people in the hall, and even at the end of the hall there's no guarantee that you won't have hallway noise.

    Wanted to throw my big old Thank You in also ALMinVA.....Followed your whole trip from the dramatic beginning to the wonderful end. A lot of us 'old timers' benefitted from your postings.

    Thanks! I expect some noise...I just returned from a wonderful Kidani stay, however, it was right next to the elevator and some families are better than others walking quietly through the halls after 10pm.

    We are headed down to WDW again this Dec (7-14), looking to try CL for the first time, either a split stay with WL (one of my faves) or all YC (first time in an EP resort). I figure, either way, we can't lose! I'm a bit nervous about how busy it will be this week as it was the one week less $$$ week NOT included for Dec. in our recent bounceback offer. I have read that the early Dec weeks are becoming more and more popular due to the discount and decorations (why we have liked it so much for years).

    We own at Animal Kingdom Villas, but always try to stay at least a few days at BCV, our favorite. In fact, we haven't stayed at our home resort yet. Our first trip will be there this summer, followed by a few days at BCV. If you are really interested, there is a whole section about purchasing on the DVC forums, which will provide you with some great information. :)

    Sorry it took me this long to reply, had to go to work. It took me 4 years to convince my hubby to go back too. We were to go last jan as a family trip, but had to cancel due an unexpected expense. I guess you can say it's all worth the wait we are staying at the YC now...:cool1: We were only going to stay at pop because we need two rooms now when we go as a family.

    ALMinVA thanks for posting the review of your trip, even with a bumpy start your family had a great trip!!! I think the view from your room is great also. It sounds like your children had a blast... Thanks for letting me bump your post I really appreciate you taking the time to post reviews ....:)

    Thanks ALMinVA for the review and fabulous photos, that was a great view. Glad your trip went well after the bumpy start. It was fun getting a few live reports too!

    I am so excited, just booked my airfare this morning, I'd never booked a trip so early I couldn't book the air. SW finally released air for late August this morning and I got the perfect direct flights I wanted and my SW RR points covered them making this trip much more affordable than the last two, free air!!! :thumbsup2

    My sister lives in Johnstown in Wexford County - she moved over ten years ago after living in NYC and meeting my brother in law who was from Johnstown and marrying him. They live on a farm and each summer come to the States to visit my family. Last summer we surprised them with the Disney trip, and my youngest nephew turned 7 in Disney World - when my sister told them they were going to get to go to Disney - the youngest actually cried he was so excited. They are having a tough time financially so footing the Disney bill for all of us is hard but so worth the smiles on their faces. They do not get to stay at hotels ever so just being at Kidani was such a treat for them as well. I think BC/YC will be a hit too! My sister loves the light up drinks but I think the green sunken treasure will be a new favorite!

    Do you know Johnstown at all?

    I love the Wilderness Lodge CL. We stayed there for the first time last year and it became our new favorite. The entire staff is really warm and welcoming. We stayed at the BWI CL 3 times prior and although it was great, I felt like I was treated much better at WL. This year we're doing a split stay between WL and YC CL in June. This will be our first stay at the YC and we're really looking forward to it. I like the fact that we'll be close to Epcot and HS and we can't wait to check out SAB.

    I'm from the north but we travelled all over the south on our summer holidays as kids so I've been to Wexford but never heard of Johnstown :)
    The economy is tough here both north and south so it's really lovely that you treat your sister and her family. I bet they'll be so thrilled :)

    Hi... no. The girls-only trip was back in November. It was amazing to see the girls again. Next fall we are headed to the GF! I have never stayed there. I want to plan it during the next Divas/MP meet & greet weekend, so I can see all my Disney Ladies at the same time. Fingers crossed!

    This vacation is a good ol' family vacation with the DH and kids. Won't be long!:cool1::cool1:

I thank you for contributing to my obsession! Has anyone felt that they would just "POP" from the anticipation???...:hyper::hyper::hyper:

    You are normal :hyper::hyper::hyper:!! :thumbsup2 My next trip is in about 17 days... sadly I am not staying at the YC/BC :confused3, but I will be at Disney!! I'll be visiting YC/BC while I'm there at least. I can't wait for the next 17 days to fly by. I'll be on the 6am flight out of NYC on my way to MCO and my happy place :earsboy:!!

    It's freezing in NYC today and a few quick passing snow storms are headed this way, the first tonight then again tomorrow night and Wednesday capping it all off with apparently (i hope it's all a story) a bigger storm on Friday :furious:

    Anyway keep on getting more excited the 24 days will pass quickly :hourglass and then you will be there hoping the days pass slowly!!

    Enjoy the waiting game!!

    Hi! I've been looking at the info pages but can't find anything about cabanas. Are there cabana rentals at Y&B Club? My sis and I are running the half marathon in 2014 and like the EPCOT area resorts. As a treat after the race I'm thinking of renting a cabana for a half day. Any info? Thanks!

    Yes, we have no cabanas.


    Sorry, had to do it.

    Unfortunately, I have never heard of any cabana rentals at Stormalong Bay or any of the other pools at Yacht & Beach.

    On a more helpful note- who knows which resorts DO have cabana rentals? The only one I know of is Poly. Do any of the EPCOT resorts offer them? Boardwalk? Swan? Dolphin?

    Sad. As far as I know the Poly, Contemporary and Grand Floridian all have cabanas. I wish the EPCOT resorts did. Thanks for answering my question though!
