So strange to see the Solarium with carpet on the floors!!

My trip to the BCV's is just 27 days away!!! I am trying to decide whether to use a grocery delivery service, or just run by a Walmart when we get into town.

Do any of you (Teena maybe?) Beach Club experts know which Walmart is closer/easiest to get to on the way to the BC?

Thanks!
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?

    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.

    Hi! what is the difference between a deluxe studio and a regular studio? :confused3
    thanks!
    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.

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

    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.

    My dates are correct - but we are at BC now. :goodvibes
    I don't blame you for not being able to keep up with me. :upsidedow
    I'll make the change!



    My DH and I will be celebrating our 15th annviersary without our DKids! We're staying at the Beach Club October 25 - 28, club level, our first time and can't hardly wait.

    Ten days - squeal :goodvibes
    :welcome: and congratulations!

    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

    :cool1:


    We are celebrating my DH's 50th birthday and our best man's 45th birthday 2/27 - 3/4 at BCV (and one couple at YC). It's my 3 time there, DH's 2nd and everyone else is a BC/YC newbie! We are all so excited for this trip!!!
    :welcome: and Happy Birthdays!

    Adding you to the Be Our Guest list

    :yay:


    Are most people going to the Boardwalk Gym then? How is that gym in comparison to the Ship Shape Gym at YC/BC?? I didn't even realize the gym was closed until I looked at this thread--we leave in a couple weeks, so we will miss the re-opening by a few days.
    :welcome:

    I didn't notice you on the guest list for October, so I'll add you.

    :woohoo:

    :banana::cheer2::banana::cheer2::cool1::cool1::cool1: Me, excited???? Beyond belief! I'm coming back. Going to try the dark side I think :goodvibes
    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.
    Dee, please add me! YC aug 20 - Sept 1 :banana:
    :welcome: back!

    Will do!

    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!

    Teena, directions would be wonderful!

    Thank you!
    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.
