    Some of these standard view rooms look more like garden or water views. I wonder if some people had been upgraded and weren't told?

    Could somebody please tell me how to add photos on this site? I've been fudging around for about an hour now!

    I stayed one night in a Beach Club Villa - Studio on March 26, 2015 for Easter Sunday Eve. I was not impressed at all with the view. We had a lovely bird attending to her babies in the corner. We chose not to disturb her and not to alert Disney, because we really didn't want anything to happen to Mamma and baby! I am going back and hoping against hope for a much better view. I also felt like the room was very dated and in sore need of an update. I understand that most rooms are in the process of being updated.

    I only have one question:

    If money were no object, would you choose a GARDEN VIEW room or a POOL/LAGOON VIEW room?

    Here are a couple of pics of the view. From the outside, our room was the one in the middle under the peak.

    Star Wars Fireworks


    " We checked out of BCCL last Thursday. I miss it so much! We were treated to a magical upgrade to a water view room - room 5687 - we had reserved standard view. The club level staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful.

    Our room was right next the Nantucket Suite. Great view to SB, although there was a tree partially blocking the view, we didn't mind, it was still gorgeous. It has one of the small balconies but we don't spend a lot of time there so that was ok too. The room did have a rather funky smell on check-in. If you have a teenaged boy, you might be familiar with the smell - eau de gym locker. We had packed some fabreze and some essential oils so I went to work spritzing and sprinkling. We left the room smelling better than when we got there! Also, this room must be directly over the Cape May Cafe and the hallway smelled very strongly of fish each evening. Yucky! I wish they piped in the smell from the lobby to each hallway. We could not smell it in the room though.

    This is our third stay at the Beach Club and I can't imagine staying anywhere else!"

    We're facing the villas. It's a corner room - extremely quiet which we're loving. No daybed which is fine by us and we have a French door and window leading to a full deck.

    Room 3726
    Standard View
    King Bed
    Small Balcony
    End of hallway
    BriLam, Aug 27-Sept 3, 2016


    View Pictures, Room 3726

    Our family had three rooms and were all located near each other on the third floor. My wife, 2.5 year old son and I had 3726, which was literally the last room in the resort. It had a king bed and a ton of room being much larger than other standard rooms. The extra room came in quite handy being we had the little man with us. I noted to my wife how quiet things were in the room. You could hear others while in the hallway, but never when in your room with the door closed. The bed was just fantastic and I loved the decor. Really great. No views at all and I'd have loved to have a "real" balcony to sit out on, but the extra room was a tradeoff we'd make again in a heartbeat.

    We did laundry while at the resort and the placement of the laundry rooms was pretty terrible for us. The two rooms in BC are located on the literal other end of the resort than we were one, with one being located in the hotel proper and the other in a separate building by the pool nearest to Epcot. Being our room was the last room on the opposite end of the resort, this made the walk to the laundry rooms pretty annoying. I wish there could have been at least one more centrally located. That said, at least there were facilities! Many fewer washers and dryers than I recall being in AKL last year, too. Why didn't they have these things accept MagicBands for payment? But I'll take credit over cash any day!

    I have added several posts for others who have stayed in rooms at the Beach Club. Which room? 3726 above?

    I just added in that it is a Standard View room, because it overlooks resort rooftops.

    Standard Room= Parking Lot or Rooftop Views
    Garden/Woods View= Something Green like courtyard or trees
    Water/Lagoon View= Pool or Crescent Lake

    Make sure you check out the first page of this thread. The first post has a very detailed map showing the rooms by view along with other information- and the next few posts have a sample of rooms by view.

    Room 3705 standard view
    2 queens, no daybed
    full balcony

    Room 3705 is a standard view room that was located right above Martha's Vineyard lounge. It was a very quiet room. We requested and received a full balcony. The room did not have a daybed but otherwise was just a regular room. We could hear the music from the pool party in the afternoon and we had a great view of the Star Wars fireworks at night. We couldn't see Illuminations, but we heard the fireworks.

    This picture was taken from our balcony while we enjoyed our morning coffee. You could smell breakfast cooking at Cape May. We could see a little of Storm Along Bay, the pirate slide and the Boardwalk.

    The red lights are where the Star Wars fireworks were. The red ones were low in the sky. The rest of the fireworks were much higher and we could see them all. :)

    This is the view to the left.

    The view to the right. Our room wasn't too far from the main elevator. The halls had a lot of turns and were narrow in spots in that section of the resort.

    Have 2-bedroom suite booked at BC in early Sep 2016. First time stay at BC, have stayed at BWI previously. This is a big trip for our family, includes both sons & DILs & grandson who will be 3 at time of trip. Does anyone have pic's & views from 2-bedroom suites? I found their locations on floor map in earlier post. Have also read about entrance on Epcot side, where is it located? Thanks!
