Yes, there is still ice cream in the BC club lounge, in a freezer at the back corner of the food area. Edy’s half-pints, chocolate and vanilla. Plus lemonade ice bars.

I am working diligently to eat my own body weight in chocolate ice cream, however, so they may rethink that for future guests.

And in addition to the toiletries that trishadono posted, our bathroom has sunscreen and aloe gel, maybe a few other items? They’re stingier with the restocks, though.

On this past Tuesday's DisUnplugged Podcast, Pete was raving about a candle company named Magic Candles. He even gave a code (Disneyinfo) for 15% off. They make candles that smell like different Disney Resorts, rides, etc. Of course, I had to buy the one called Beach Resort. It really smells like I am sitting in the lobby of the Beach Club and is making me very happy.

    Omg I can’t believe there’s one for Rome burning. I always tell Dh I love that smell.

    I have several of these and they’re really good. I got Rome Burning too because I love the smell, but I found out it’s only on the ride. There’s something about your house smelling like it’s burning down that kind of ruins it.
    I have nothing to add, but just want to say that this thread was "Smoking" today! Thanks for all of the pictures and experiences!

    Lots of space, the bedrooms being on either side of the suite would be good for traveling families/couples that want some separation.
    I'm surprised that both bedrooms have a king bed. But it makes it perfect for two couples. :)

    There is a huge lack of ice cream at Walt Disney World. I'm glad to see that the BC is one of the few places that is sensible enough to stock their club lounges with it. ;)

    So, that's about it on Room 3209 / 2 Bedroom Suite-Club Level Access.

    Some overall thoughts:

    - Lots of space, the bedrooms being on either side of the suite would be good for traveling families/couples that want some separation.
    - I'm biased, but I like CL at YC a lot, so that's always nice. It is a long'ish, but pretty easy trek to the lounge from this room. You could have a longer walk at the end of the CL floor for some rooms.
    - Three full bathrooms would really come in handy for some traveling parties. A combination of showers and tubs helps with adults/little ones as well.
    - Good central room location within the context of the resort - easy to get to everything.
    - Reasonably good views from both bedrooms, although the balconies are kind of small'ish. I think maybe I was expecting a bigger "wow" balcony with the suites, but that's not the case with this particular suite type. It's OK.
    - No full-sized fridge and no full-sized sink, there are other WDW suites that have more of a real kitchen if that is something that is important to you.

    Always happy to answer any questions, just let me know. Thanks!
    Wow, what a great review! The room looks great. Did you decide if it will work for the trip you were scouting it for? If it will, we expect pictures of the master bath next time! :goodvibes

    Have you tried calling mousekeeping and asking specifically for more toiletries? Last time I called and asked for more. They said which ones... I said all of them, but especially shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. I am still using those toiletries 3 years later.... ;)

    Thanks. The upgrade was a great surprise. We ended up canceling all our ADRs. I was going to do a three night comparison of Cape May dinner, the Garden Grove seafood buffet and an off-site place Boston Lobster as my birthday splurge. Guess that’ll wait until a future trip.

    I will say that we’ve figured out why this room was a free upgrade. I might have been trading rooms if I paid CL$ for it. It’s as far from the lounge as you can go without being over at YC, and you get to feel like you’re at SAB all day and night. Good thing I like most of the music they play at the pool, and the blackout curtains work really well to block out the lights. And it’s got the Juliette balconies, which seems to be a big dealbreaker for a lot of people.

    The room is huge, though, and feels bigger since there’s only a sleeper chair instead of a full-size sofa bed. There’s tons of open floor space. I’m actually surprised they didn’t make this an accessible room, since there would be tons of space for even multiple ECVs. And as I just found out, you can see the higher Star Wars and Fantasmic fireworks over at HS.

    I did take pics of the room, and I’ll post them next week.

    I’ve got tons at home from previous trips, and we’ve only got carryons, otherwise I might have. Gotta stock up before they switch over to the rumored wall dispensers like at the gym...

    Lol I could see how that might not smell as great at home. Are the 8 oz candles tiny? $17 isn’t cheap for a candle

    Do you have a wax warmer I think they were like 4 for $20 or something like that last time I ordered?
    Nope we don't have a wax warmer. We just used old fashioned candles lol. I probably just won't buy any, but it's cool that they sell those

    Thank you so much for your fantastic review and awesome photos!
    Would a rollaway bed fit in either the second bedroom or living room? We are hoping to do a family trip for Christmas 2020 with my daughter and her husband and little boy who will be 2 years by then so I'm guessing won't count towards room occupancy? Your suite looks perfect in size and layout but my 2 boys won't want to share a bed so I'm thinking maybe a rollaway would work. Mind you it would all depend on whether the baby counted as there would be 5 adults, 1 child and 1 baby.
    Also is the cost similar to the price of 2 separate Club level rooms? Love the living space and mini kitchen and think both would be great especially with 2 families who want to holiday together but not on top of each other plus 3 bathrooms!!!:worship:


    Not sure if it’s been posted yet or not, sorry not all caught up, March 17th Hurricane Hanna’s will have extended hours, dinner available until 10 instead of 8!
    Hopefully they'll be serving lots of Sunken Treasures so everyone can "drown their shamrock and wear their green" to celebrate St Patrick's Day ! Slainte!:shamrock:

    Of course! My pleasure to add you to the list.

    :woohoo:




    I'll add you to the list.

    Good question- I haven't stayed at club level since 2016, so the experience I have is even more ancient than yours.

    Some of the offerings have changed/expanded. They have a hot, rotating breakfast entrée each morning. The evening appetizers also have improved and become more meal-like than nibbles. Lounge is open 24 hours now (I think).

    Question for the masses:

    Is there still ice cream available in the coolers?

    What's the deal with fast pass service?

    :goodvibes
