    I always send guests to Super Target on 192. If you are interested in those directions, I'll be glad to post them.

    We just got back from our 3rd BC CL stay. It was wonderful! I have read reports of dirty rooms, but we did not have any problems. Our room was very clean. I requested a room with a full balcony, daybed, and close to the lounge. All of our requests were met.

    We did a split stay with 2 nights at CSR followed by 6 nights at BC. The CSR experience was not so great, and we couldn't wait to get to BC. We tried to move to BC after the first night at CSR, but we were told it was sold out that night.

    For years I had no interest in staying anywhere other than the Poly. We decided to give BC a try a couple of years ago, and we love it about as much as the Poly now. It makes it hard to choose where to stay!

    These are the directions I have posted in the FAQ on Page 1:

    Directions to Super Target, from the Beach Club:

    Head towards Animal Kingdom Lodge (not park) and turn left at the light before you get to the Lodge (Sherberth Road). When you get to 192, turn right (west) and it's up the road a bit on the left. Lots of nice restaurants around there and much less crowded that the other side of WDW.



    Sound about right?

    Natebenma put me on the list :cloud9:
    YC Aug 20 - Sept 1 2013 woohoo
    Sorry Teena, and I may switch to BC, but want to try YC to cross it off my bucket list, will still come over to visit you :flower3:

    I booked standard view, anyone have any suggestion for request aside from my upper floor request. TA is still going to try to get me a GV, but it's a special deal, and so far only Std view is avail. dunno.

    After much research and a whole lot of desire to stay in one or both, I have concluded, beyond a reasonable doubt that these are indeed indentical rooms! (Not conclusive but there is always that reasonable doubt)
    Have you seen a cost difference associated the two descriptions?

    On the DVC members reservations system it gives the option of
    Deluxe villa
    One bedroom villa
    Two bedroom villa.

    On the Disney reservation system it gives the option of
    Studio,
    One Bedroom Villa
    Two Bedroom Lock-Off Villa.

    I feel like you are booking the same room. They just call it a different names in the different business units.'\
    Hope that helps.

    Glad you had a great stay and a great room :).

    Thanks for the pics. We love Yachtsman and it's definitely on our list when we stay at the YC in July :goodvibes.

    Congrats on booking the YC :yay:. We have stayed at the BC before, but are trying the "dark side" next summer as well ;).

    Vinotinto - great pics from the Yachtsman!

    Love the picture of the ceiling. We ate there in March and I did not notice the ceiling. Can't believe I didn't look up. Such a neat bit of architecture.

    That's exactly how to get there. From BC, it should take about 15 minutes to get there. It's a nice SuperTarget.....I think it opened three years ago. The prices there are much cheaper than Winn-Dixie or Publix, both of which are in the same area.

    Does anyone here know if Stormalong Bay will be undergoing repairs/maintenance the week of Feb 3 - 11th?
    Last year during our stay (early Jan) they were doing repairs & many parts of the pool were sectioned off.
    Thanks!
