    Was just browsing YouTube for room tours of the YC and saw this one from TouringPlans. What room category is this? Aside from the view, it looks amazing! Might have to try and get this on our upcoming trip.

    Here's the link to pictures from Room 1647 (BC 1BR Suite)

    http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=43927372&postcount=8

    It looks like there is a couch/sofa in the bedroom, but I have no idea if it is a pullout or not.

    There seems to be a separate, small room with a daybed.

    Maybe not all of the 1BR rooms have a sofa in the bedroom. I don't even know how many of these rooms there are.

    Did you call the Disney CRO or the BC/YC IPO for the info about the rooms?

    My very uneducated guess is Accessible King Room.

    Is that one of the Deluxe rooms? I read somewhere that they used to have the french door. I know BC Deluxe rooms can sleep 5, but the Yacht Club deluxe rooms sleep fewer.

    According to my notes, it is a 1 Bedroom Suite at BC. Unless there is another bedroom I think this room only sleeps 3 (2 in bedroom, one on sofa bed)

    As you indicated, the Deluxe BC rooms sleep 5.

    I'm trying to gather as much info as possible about the suites and deluxe rooms, so if anyone has descriptions or pictures to share, I would appreciate it!

    I did think of a couple of things!!!

    Can you check at the BC Marketplace to see if they sell gallons of water, and how much they are? That would be a great solution for filling reusable water bottles to take to the park, rather than the individual plastic water bottles.

    I still have not seen pictures of the solarium since the gym moved out.

    Does anyone have photos?

    If not, is it possible for you to take a couple so we can see how the space looks?

    Thanks!!!

    Dee

    Thank you natbenma,

    These pictures are great! They look very similar to what is on the Disney website. I was originally staying at YC in a deluxe cl room but I changed to the BC 1 bedroom suite. I was just confused because when I called to change my reservation, I was told there isn't a sofa. I probably should call the IPO.

    I appreciate your help!

    I'm on it!

    But I'm a little ignorant about the gym/solarium relationship. I'm aware of a solarium near the Marketplace. That's the one pictured at the bottom of post #6 in this thread, right? So what are you looking for in relation to the gym?

    Yes, I am talking about the solarium that is in the post you referenced.

    The health club at BC/YC was renovated this fall, and while it was closed, fitness equipment was moved into the Solarium. It became the make-shift gym for the resort.

    Work was completed on the health club in November or December, and I presume that the solarium is put back the way it was, but I haven't actually seen any pictures.

    So this is a long-winded explanation saying- I wouldn't mind seeing a few pictures of the Solarium.

    I am all set on the health club. Someone provided pictures of that after it reopened.

    Thanks!

    Ah, now I get it. I missed that the gym was temporarily in that space. Thanks for clarifying. I'll get a few shots for you.

    We will be heading off to BCV on Wednesday. (That was in doubt last week, but all systems are now GO!) :cool1:

    Anyways I wanted to try out posting a photo. This is our cast of characters from last year's trip. Kids are a little bigger now, but the adults look pretty much the same. It is me (Valerie -- standing with kids) and my DH, Jim, who is stand with his mother Jill, who is also coming. If you are cruising the World next week & see us, say hi!

    Since I couldn't find an answer, I thought I would ask here. I know you can't bring outside floats for adults, but you can pool noodle. My question is, can you bring the pool noodle chairs? If you haven't seen one, they look like...

    If you wrap a plain noodle around you, it would be in the same shape. The only difference is with the chair their is mess under your rear.

    Here's a few from January (after the gym). Could not tell much difference.

    bigAWL you can probably grab some better ones

    Got it! I'll make the change and keep my fingers crossed for you that something opens up at BC. If not, YC will still be awesome!

    :cool1:


    Thanks for posting the picture Valerie. It worked!

    I'm so glad that your possible issues were resolved. Yikes!

    We did get a picture of what we think is the "bridal bathroom"- but if you are able to snap a photo or two while you are there, just to confirm we have the right one (the one near Ariel's), that would be appreciated.

    Have a fantastic time!!!

    Don't know!

    I think part of the issue is that the lifeguards need to have unobstructed views to the bottom of the pool, and they don't want anything that may block what they can see.

    My guess is no, but without checking with a lifeguard, it is just a guess.
