From outside facing the room. All three doors under the overhang are part of Room 101.

Just back from a week at BCV. We were in room 101 which was my exact room request through Touring Plans. Loved this location. Ground floor, near the main entrance. Easy access to the Marketplace, bus stops, quiet pool and path to Epcot. Super quiet as it was an end room in a short hallway. It was a dedicated 2 bedroom with 2 queens in the second bedrooom. I completely blanked on taking pics of the room, but here are pics from the patio!
Thanks so much for these room view photos and description! I am going to add your post to the BCV Room View thread.

:disrocks: There are so many people with great info AND just as many with strong opinions.


I was lying in bed this morning thinking about my upcoming trip. For the first time I decided not to get a length of stay pass to force myself to do "non-park" things on some days. One of those days I will be taking the Backstage Magic tour. This morning it occurred to me that I have to get from the Yacht Club to the front of Epcot by 9 AM. Eeek. So close, yet so far away. I didn't plan to use one of my ticketed days that day, and I'm not sure I would have enough time anyway based on what time the International Gateway opens.

Thoughts? (I hate to say it, but I've also considered canceling since my hip has been bothering me lately. This may be the straw that forces my decision. :( )

I loved the Backstage Magic tour, so I wouldn't cancel. it's a wonderful tour. My suggestion is to Uber/Lyft to the Epcot entrance.

    We arrive at the BC on Saturday (yay!!!) and are doing EMM on Tues. We have 2 kids, and both should really be in at least booster seats, so we were planning on taking the Minnie Vans to get to the MK in time. However, I've seen reports that they are not always available. If we end up having to take the bus, what time would we need to be at the BC bus stop to make it to MK in time by 7:30ish? I'm leaning towards just using Lyft if we can't get a minnie van but would feel better if we could car seats.

    Thanks for the encouragement for the tour and alternate transportation. Despite staying at the Yacht Club, taking the Backstage Magic tour (and having dinner that night at Yachtsman Steakhouse) I'm basically a cheapskate at heart and hate to spend money for Uber when it's so close and i should be able to walk. Disney math strikes again! :rotfl2:

    It's a very long day when u do that tour. Don't burn all your energy before the tour even starts.

    If u enter your Delta frequent flyer number into your Lyft account, you will get discounts applied automatically to your Lyft rides. If you don't use Delta, do it anyway.

    Has anyone tried Ale and Compass restaurant for dinner? I looked on TripAdvisor and people mostly complain that they don't give you any bread with dinner. If you want bread, you have to pay $12, which is kind of ridiculous. The menu looks okay, but nothing great. Thanks for any info.
    We had a great dinner there when we were there two weeks ago.
    We had the Roasted Garlic shrimp and Parker house rolls as Starters. Both were really good.
    My wife had the Smoked Barbecue porkchop and I had the 16oz T-Bone. Both were excellent! My wife's only complaint was they put too much sauce onthe pork chop and it would have been better on the side. My T-Bone was cooked perfectly and was delicious.

    The service was very attentive. Although the dining room is a bit loud. I recommend it.

    Hey folks... Thought I would give my thoughts on our recent stay at Yacht Club as a first timer.

    Getting off Magical express on Sunday morning in front of the resort was actually kind of magical. The resort is very beautiful... (I know you all know this but this was my first time back to Disney in 25+ years and first time ever staying on property for my Wife and me.)

    We were greeted by some very helpful cast members who directed us to the check-in area. We were acknowledged by a gentleman who was dressed up in some yachting regalia but it was only a cursory glance and welcome... he seemed stiff and uncomfortable.

    Check-in was very smooth and the cast members were great. We were told that we were Upgraded to Club level! YAY! We had reserved a standard garden view so we were excited about that. One of the CM's winked and said she thought we would REALLY like the upgrade. I didn't know why but was very grateful to be club level. ( we had no idea what was coming). We did not ask for any upgrades or favors. We were celebrating 5 years together and I think my TA put that in our reservation. (maybe that had something to do with it?)

    The room was immediately ready and so we went up to the room. ( Room 3155 )
    We were a bit perplexed as to why our room number was on three different doors and it started to sink in a little. We opened up the room and discovered that we had been upgraded to the Turret Suite which is a two bedroom / three bathroom suite. HOLY COW! I mean... HOLY COW this room was amazing!
    I have included some pictures below. ( I had a panoramic but it wouldn't allow me to upload it.)

    The room was amazing. The cast members were also amazing and so very helpful with everything. This, as I said was our first experience with staying on property and we will DEFINITELY do it again. I can not say enough good things about this resort and we can not wait to come back.
    If you have any questions let me know I will try and answer the best I can.

    Question, we are on rented points and want to get the towel/trash service. Do we just let me know at check in?

    No need to tell them when you check in. You'll get Trash and Towel service on day four. As an example, if you check in on a Wednesday, you'll get the service on Saturday. They'll replenish toiletries, coffee packets, and towels. Under the recent policy, which did happen to us in January your trash will be removed daily. If you're staying less than 4 nights there will be no Trash and Towel service.

    That is what I am wondering about because we are only there 4 days So i want to pay the fee for the daily towel services.

    Why do you claim”Disney math strikes again”. You do not want to use a ticket to get through Epcot from the IG. Alternative transportation is therefore required. Where is the Disney math?
