nope - we stayed in one that had a standing-room only balcony facing the lake and it also had a full balcony facing the quiet pool. It was a hike to the lounge, but we had fun with it and taking the trip upstairs. Still to this day we talk about visiting "the 5th floor" whenever we talk about something extra special or luxurious.
Could you please add us to the Be Our Guest list?!
We will be at the Beach Club, garden view, April 11 - 20th, 2015.
Alicia and Tom, DS 10, DS 7, and DD 4
We usually stay at the Poly, and it's going to feel weird not being there - feels like "home" when I walk in - but we said last time that it might be nice to try the Beach Club as it is soooooo close Epcot and DHS and has a built-in water park. We'll have to walk through Epcot to get to the monorail to MK....we love the monorail or, as my littlest one calls it...the mamarail.
The request for a renovated room and a lower floor are probably conflicting requests. Although I haven't seen a timetable, I think they will probably still be working on some of the upper floors (4 and 3) at that time.If we have a Garden View category room, can I request a courtyard on the lake side of the building? It looks like some look at woods and there might be a courtyard on the villas side, right?
My requests would be, in order...
* a renovated room
* a room with a daybed
* a courtyard view on the lake side of the building
* as low a floor as possible (ideally the first or second floor, but I don't know how far along they'll be by 4/11)
Does any of this conflict with the others? Is this crazy? Ha.
Anyone have a favorite garden view block of rooms they think is great to request? We have three little kids, so convenience to entrances and food is always a plus.
Sounds great! I'll make the adjustment on the BOG list.I've switched my room category from CL to a non CL water view, still at the BC
I love the look of the new lounge over the old lounge but it's still not a place where I can really relax, now I do love the solarium and I spent many a time relaxing there my last trip.
So, I've ditched CL and gone with the deluxe dining plan, I must be crazy as the price I'm paying is more than I was for my old CL room without the plan lol but I know for me it's the right mix and I can't wait until November 2015.
Happy new year everyone
Hi everyone! I am back after a long absence. In that time I have done two Disney cruises and one amazing 12 day trip to Aluani! I also did the wine and dine 1/2 last month and stayed at the BC. I am gearing up for a mother daughter trip over MLK weekend. I bought an annual pass since I knew I was going at least twice. I expect another visit will be in my future before Nov!
Also wanted to mention the room I had last month was great! It was in the little hallway between the elevator and the store. We had a patio looking on to the path folks exit the lobby walking towards the lake. It was so nice
Anyway going to go back a bit and catch up on the conversation and what's going on at my favorite resort.
That is a fantastic way to start the new year!!!I was so excited to see that the new discounts have been released. By changing my dates to June 10-17, I was able to save almost $1700.00. I love discounts! Happy New Year!
Great! We'll be looking for you on Sunday, Jan 25th in the late afternoon. We have a few fastpasses scheduled in DHS and dinner in Epcot, so a stop at the BC will work out perfectly.Yep, I'll be back at work and Jeanne actually goes back to teaching on the 26th. I look forward to seeing you!!!!
That's a good question. I just looked at the 2015 Disney Dining fileHappy New Year !
Just a question. Hurricane's Hannah is not on the dining plan 2015 for dinner ?
In 2013, it was. Is it really the case or i don't understand ?
Mears runs a shuttle that picks up at some Disney resorts, for around $20 per person, I think.Great! We'll be looking for you on Sunday, Jan 25th in the late afternoon. We have a few fastpasses scheduled in DHS and dinner in Epcot, so a stop at the BC will work out perfectly.
I'm just beginning to get back to normal after having house guests for two weeks. I have a lot of catching up to do.
I am seriously thinking of spending a day at Universal during our April stay at the YC. Does anyone have any good suggestions on how to manage it? We won't have a car unless we rent one. I am a big Harry Potter fan and would love to see all the HP stuff at Universal. I would think that this would be a good time to try to see it, since the crowds shouldn't be too bad in mid-April. But I don't know anything about how to manage to get over there.
Thanks, Dee. The Mears shuttle isn't as expensive as I thought it would be. Since there is just two of us, that could work out well.Mears runs a shuttle that picks up at some Disney resorts, for around $20 per person, I think.
Dreams Unlimited (sponsor of the DIS) has a package deal that includes transportation and 1 day/2 park tickets for Universal/IoA, $150 per person.
Here's the link: http://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.com/universal/terms-1day2park-roundtrip.htm
I have used a private car service to get between Disney/Universal and it is under $100 round trip (plus tip). We will be using Ed Korgan livery service for the 3rd time in February (MCO to US). I have heard good things about Tiffany Town Car as well.
Recent posters on the Disney to US Transportation thread have been suggesting checking into Uber.
Transportation between Disney and US/IoA
I'll come back and post a link from the Universal Boards about transportation and see if I can find the Dreams Unlimited deal.
Teena, cover your eyes...
The Harry Potter stuff rocks!
