Slight change for the BOG list, we are now staying at BC from 8/29 through 9/2. So happy we get to spend another day at the BC
I noticed that, earlier this year, and posted the observation on this thread. I wonder if as the resorts are updated, the rates will be "updated," as well, to pay for the improvements.Quick question....why is BC more expensive than YC? Same dates, same category(GV). Is this a recent change ?
I swear when we stayed at YC two years ago the pricing was the same. Now BC is almost $40 per day more.
Enjoy! I too would be interested to hear about the configuration of this room. We have stayed on that same hallway, about halfway down the hall, overlooking the quiet pool, but not all the way to the end of the hall as this room appears to be. Hope you have a magical time!So happy right now I may burst so I had to post this in the only place that would understand. Our flight doesn't leave until 9pm tonight but I just got the text with our room number at BC...4530 which isn't that a refurbished room and the one with the huge balcony?
Why is that? For the first few years we were DVC members we stayed at BWV. Our daughter was young and we were a little nervous about the sprawling nature of SAB. I wasn't too sure about that sandy bottom either. I just assumed it would be like the beach and I would always be sandy. Well, we finally made the switch trying a split stay the first time and the first thing I noticed was how much warner the water was in SAB.hat said, after SAB, it's my favorite pool on WDW property. The slide is more thrilling than at SAB, it's never terribly crowded, and as an August traveler, their pool always feels about 10 degrees cooler than any other pool on property. I don't know how they do it!
Bitter beer ice
Butter beer ice cream???!! Did they add this when the opened Diagon Alley? I need this.
Thank you.....of course I switched my reservation to the Orbitz 30% plua 15% off discount from the 35% pin code I orginally booked, then realized it cost me $35.00 more to switch instead of saving over $300.00, ugh.I noticed that, earlier this year, and posted the observation on this thread. I wonder if as the resorts are udated, the rates will be "updated," as well, to pay for the improvements.
Ooh... I don't remember hot butter beer either...just cold and frozen. I think it is time for a reconnaissance trip back to the dark side.Yes, they did. I hear it is very tasty. I was going to put it to the test when we visited in February, but it was so cold while we were there, I had no interest in ice cream. The hot butter beer totally rocks, though!!!
If you want to place special room requests, you can call Orbitz one week before arrival to ask them to make the requests for you with the BC, including for a 4th floor (refurbished) room. You will definitely enjoy staying at the Beach Club!Thank you.....of course I switched my reservation to the Orbitz 30% plua 15% off discount from the 35% pin code I orginally booked, then realized it cost me $35.00 more to switch instead of saving over $300.00, ugh.
Our friends we are traveling with are staying in BCV, so we will be closer to them but I was surprised to say the least. I hope we end up with a refurbed room, since it is like we are paying for it.
Yep, I'll be there on the 19th. Wow ... a freshman ... hard to believe!!!!!We would love to meet them and I think an evening at MK sounds like a plan. Hopefully we can catch up in April. Still haven't finished catching up...on page 120 so you may have already mentioned. Are you working 4/19? Ron and I have a quickie trip planned but could only get in for the weekend at BCV and will be staying before that at poly. Can you believe DD will be a rising college freshman?????
My girlfriend and I are making this trip together. We went at the end of December with all 15 people in my family (7 adults, 8 kids) and decided this one was just the two of us. I cannot wait. I've heard so many good things about BCV and F&W plus MNSSHP...it's really the perfect time and place to go.Graychef is having my dream adults only birthday vacation
I know there is at least one as I've had it. So go ahead and request a king and a full balcony.Not sure if this the best place to ask this question or not, but we are going to BC at end of August and have requested a King bed (but are booked under standard view) I know nothing is guaranteed but I am really hoping for a Balcony that I can sit out on too. I am just wondering if there actually are King bed rooms with full balconies? I can't find hardly any info about King's at BC. I just don't want to get my hope up if it is the two are mutually exclusive anyways. The view doesn't matter to me at all, just the ability to sit outside with my coffee while DH sleeps in.
This was the previous menu. The reason I couldn't find MickeyT's post here on the thread was that he posted it on Facebook. He was disappointed that they have removed the sundae and milkshakes from the takeout menu.
You can still get cones and the Mini Mickey Sink!!No! No! No! Say it isn't so! One our favorite traditions was deciding last minute to skip dinner and just have "ice cream for dinner". First they took the option away from just walking in to B&C, and we decided that was okay as we could still get our sundaes thru take out. Now we don't have that option either. My family is going to be totally heartbroken. There is no such thing as spontaneity anymore in a Disney vacation.
I will definitely be contacting the resort to politely express our concerns as well. If their reasoning was the time it takes to prepare items then they should have removed the $23 mini kitchen sink as well. Our family easily spent $150 a trip at this takeout window getting milkshakes and sundaes but can't justify paying $23 as the only option for a sundae.MY OPINION...
I realize cutting back on the to go menu was probably due to the time it takes the servers to prepare the items. The area they have to work is SO small and during the summer they probably get swamped. Give them the room they need.
- Expand the take out menu to more than 4 items.
- Take out part (or all) of Ariel's and make the place bigger. You could easily double the tables and keep it full.
- Give the servers more room behind the counter.
- Make the counter and take out area at least twice the size it is now.
Sorry you have to reschedule, but glad you still get to go fairly soon! I haven't stayed at BC, so I can't compare the two, but we stayed at YC with our kids and they LOVED it (we all did). So much so that they don't want to stay anywhere else. My husband actually flat out refused to change even for a better deal. There were lots of families there, but no kids running up and down the halls or anything. It didn't feel stuffy or like it catered more to adults at all, to us.Do to some black ice that caused a dislocated shoulder for my husband we have had to reschedule our April trip. We are now staying at the YC September 5-13 instead of the BC in April. I am a little nervous about our stay there because I have heard it is not a resort as family friendly as the BC.
Most of what you are paying for with the mini mickey sink is the souvenir dish and since none of us can agree on ice cream and toppings anyway, this isn't really an option. So sad that another of our favorites has gone to the wayside.You can still get cones and the Mini Mickey Sink!!
I just noticed the Garden View/Woods View today! I swear it wasn't like that last week. It was Garden View every time I checked my MDE reservation. I just made my final payment today, so I looked to see if it had updated my payment, and it switched to Garden View/Woods View. I made a comment to DH, and he just looked at me like I was crazy. (What else is new?) Glad it's not just me.Sorry you have to reschedule, but glad you still get to go fairly soon!

Speaking of YC, does anyone know when the Garden View category became "Garden View/Woods View"? I'm certain it wasn't listed that way last year. Doesn't matter much to us, we'd happily look out over a dumpster if it meant we got to stay there, but I thought it was interesting.
