Just a friendly reminder that Southwest will be opening up it's booking window tomorrow [8/30] for flights through 4/7/19. Not a huge extension from the the already 3/6/19 booking date, but I assume some folks may have spring break plans or maybe a Star Wars 1/2 marathon [like me] :tiptoe:that they need to book airfare for!

    Too much heat here in CT! Thanks for keeping me honest. I have edited it.

    Thinking of staying Beach Club next May... I can't decide if the price is worth it over POP. We stayed Yacht Club last August and loved it, location, the pool... it was great. We have stayed at POP twice and with the renovations it's nice, especially given I can get coffee in room now. We don't eat a lot of table service, perhaps once or twice, quick service is much easier to manage, less planning. Finding breakfast was hard at Yacht Club, when we were there it seemed they were doing renos to the quick service. I am hoping not to purchase groceries this time, but a gallon of milk would be nice to have. What to do!

    yc 1.jpg yc3.jpg yc4.jpg Hi. Just returned from an amazing first stay at the YC. It was me and my daughter and we stayed 6 nights in a standard view room. We had room 3114 - a corner room and it was breathtaking! 2 windows, a full balcony, the bathroom had glass shower doors and a sliding barn door to allow for privacy in the sink area. Lots of storage - closet and dresser. The only (small) drawback was no daybed. But since it was just the two of us, we each had our own bed and didn't miss the day bed.

    We have stayed at BC three times, Polynesian three times, GF, WL and AKL many times - the Yacht Club is hands down our favorite of them all! The energy of the resort is calm and relaxing. The lobby scent is amazing! The rooms are beautiful. I can't wait to stay there again. I'll try to post some room photos shortly.

    At BC. Been up since about 5am listening to painting contractors (I face the valet, 4th floor (of five - 2 rooms below me and club room above)). (While actual painting is quiet, the trucks aren’t - they are painting the high wood structures above the valet parking area, so trucks that extend up to lift the workers are moved into place and extended. And something that sounds like a generator runs at times. And the frequent truck back up beeping noise.)

    The note in the room says painting “will be taking place” 9am-5pm. I was banking on being able to sleep until at least 7am when we couldn’t nap yesterday due to many hours of even louder construction related noise.

    I understand they want to make it look nice for future guests. But there is plenty of room around their work area for a vehicle (even a fire truck) to drive through. (We often look down there during the day - it’s not so busy that just one lane would cause problems imo). They didn’t have to do this before 7am. Or they could have left a note warning us of it, so I would have change the night I stayed out late to see fireworks.

    If your room is a standard room above the porte cochere (front entrance), noises from below are not unusual - from Magical Express arrivals and departures to noisy families, who are oblivious to the fact that some guests may not be awake at 5:00 AM.

    However, noise from remodeling/painting crews before the stated work hours should not be expected, nor tolerated. The painting process has been extremely slow, and the crews may be running behind schedule, which could be caused by weather delays, or just underestimating the time needed to complete the work. Disney often makes commitments to large groups that there will not be any construction work going on, during the dates booked for that group. If that commitment is not kept, Disney is breaking the contract, and could be subject to financial consequences, as well as loss of goodwill and possible return bookings.

    If you have not done so, I would register your complaint with a front end supervisor at the front desk. They may move you to a quieter room or offer some sort of accommodation or perk, to make up for the inconvenience.

    I have stayed in a standard view room at the resort over the front entrance and understand how annoying and disturbing those noises can be.

    Oh no, it was beautiful the past few days in CT but then again my butt was in the pool! Hoping to go in soon but kids first day of school which means cleaning for me! Do you Facebook? And if so do you follow eweather? He is local to me, a few towns north on the CT River but his forcasts are pretty spot on.

    We were on the 4th floor facing the valet. Get off elevator, take a left and a left-2-4th room on the right, Juliette balcony. DH who usually sleeps like a log heard the noise but I didn’t but then again, I was up all mornings besides one by 6.

    I liked it because it was close to main elevator and ice machine-actually I think we were next to the room that was across from the ice machine.

    If excessive heat advisories are beautiful weather to you then I assume you don't like the winters here in CT? I'm up in Coventry, away from any cooling breezes and fortunately have a pool which I must share with the dog.

    Quick question! Having a few pics done of hubby & me during our short pre-cruise BC stay in a couple weeks. I’m sure the lady we have knows great spots to get some good shots. But juuuust in case I’d like to have a few suggestions myself. When we arrive hubby and I can go scout, too. Why not also ask the folks who know the resort best? If you were going to take some pics in or around BC or YC, what locations come to mind? Inside is a plus. As redheads when we get hot outside we turn...well...red. LOL!

    As much as I hate the cold I do hate the heat! But I am enjoying it while it’s here because I am dreading winter! Cleaning and then headed into the pool...with out kids! Or a dog!

    I am shoreline so it tends to be a bit breezier, granted I am 5 or so miles up from LI sound.

    Just booked our flights through southwest for our upcoming trip at the end of March! So excited with the nonstop flight time we got. We will be arriving in MCO at 1:15pm and will have more than enough time to enjoy our afternoon/evening in Epcot! One of the many reasons we love staying at these resorts. You arrive and like 10 minutes later you can be in Epcot!
