We are getting SOOOOO excited for our trip! Does anyone know where I can find the September activities information for BC? Thank you!!!!
Yes there are plugs and USB ports all over. There are two USB ports on the table between the beds and two, I believe, on the desk. There were definitely plenty for our family of five.How busy do the buses and boats get by the time they reach beach club? I have mobility issues, so am slightly concerned.
Are there usb sockets in the room? And random question, but can you see the tv okay from both beds in a queen room?
Thank you! this is good to knowYes there are plugs and USB ports all over. There are two USB ports on the table between the beds and two, I believe, on the desk. There were definitely plenty for our family of five.
Yes you can see the tv well from either bed. It’s a good size tv, maybe 42”. The only couple annoying things we noticed is that it is a true smart tv. When you turn the lights down or off, the screen dims. We couldn’t figure out how to turn that feature off. The second was the tv is preset, so when you turn it on it comes on at a preset volume, which is LOUD!
Bought several items yesterday at BC marketplace and was asked if I had either DVC or AP so they could apply discount. I did and they did.Cast members working in Beach Club Marketplace and the Market at Ale and Compass will tell you that AP discount is not available. You can insist that they try because sometimes they are wrong.
I will post the calendar here in the thread and on Page 1, Post 4 when I get one, but I am not usually able to find the schedule for the month until the first couple of days of that month.We are getting SOOOOO excited for our trip!

Thanks for the great pictures.
to the forum!I think for some trips and some people view and frankly resort type isn't as important. I totally used to be in that camp when my kids were younger and we weren't in the room too much- hence why we stayed in values. When we believed they were old enough to appreciate a nicer resort we booked CSR as a surprise- the looks on their faces when we pulled up was priceless, and they just got better during the whole stay! Our first deluxe was AKL and while I booked a standard view with the same thought in mind about view, we got upgraded to a savannah view- and I was hooked! I mean, how can you beat waking up the giraffes out your window and animals to watch every morning while sitting on your balcony? When we stay there again I will definitely be booking an animal view! The river and gardens views at POR and POFQ are gorgeous, though I wouldn't turn down standard. When DH and I stayed at BWI for our anniversary I booked a standard view thinking how bad can it be? Then when we were walking in to check-in I saw how lots faced the parking lot and were really close- not what I really was expecting but it would be ok. Somehow we were upgraded to a garden view- and we were top floor with a view out to Epcot (what? I can see the Eiffel Tower every day?). One of the things we enjoyed most was relaxing at the end of the night and watching and listening to Illuminations while sitting on our balcony with dessert and champagne about every night.
Long story short, I don't think a view can break a trip, but I can sure make it!
Congrats on your upcoming retirement!Hi all! I've been checking out this thread to get an idea on where to stay for the trip I'm planning for next April. I'd love everyone's input though to help me make a final decision by the time I book, which should be in Sept. (waiting to see if they do a military discount, and if not what other discount can we get). You can see in my signature the years and places we've stayed before and ages of my kids.
This trip will be to celebrate my retirement from the company I worked for over 20 years (it will be 22 when I retire). I took a leap of faith to take a position I was offered in a totally different type of company in May and I'm loving it, but I stayed on to work some weekends with the other company and so I can claim retirement. I'm not salary with them anymore, but the hourly pay I make is being put away for this trip and savings. We will also be celebrating DH's birthday that falls at the end of that week.
We are staying at BCV for the first time in less than a month for four nights. What is the best option for ordering a case of water (maybe 2) and maybe some beverages (wine or beer/etc...) for the room at the end of the day? How does that work? Do I have to hang out at the room until they are delivered because of the ID? Will they text me when they are on their way so I can slip out of F&W to meet them and then head back to Epcot? I might just forget it but we definitely would want the water. What are the options and what are the pros/cons to each option?
Your pictures and details have made the Cabanas information so much clearer. Thank you!The cabanas are well-documented on this thread so this is repetitive, but just a few photos from the ground this past weekend. I am nearly certain I have the numbers correct from the what I saw on the signs, but if someone thinks I have any messed up, please let me know.

Super excited - first time at Beach Club. Rented DVC Points for a Studio Nov 16 - 21.
It looks like we only get one day's worth of coffee/sugar/creamer, is that correct? If so, what style of coffee maker do they have in the Studio DVC rooms so we can bring our own?
Also, we're driving, is there a separate parking area for the DVC vs the regular hotel?
Bummed about them removing the freezer part of the 'frig unit, had been planning on bringing some frozen breakfast sandwiches.
Can you see the fireworks from Epcot at anyplace on the property? I saw one of the pictures from the SAB that showed fireworks.
Thanks for the pictures! So do you know if part of the arcade will be closed during the Beaches & Cream renovation, or is the whole place likely to be inaccessible during the work?Beaches and Cream will be closed till sometime in December. Part of the adjacent Arcade is partitioned off, which seems to confirm B&C expanding into the Arcade space.

Thanks for this picture and information. I think I have a different price on the Marketplace post, so I'll revise my info.
Thank you! The gallons will probably work for us. Does anyone know the cost of a gallon of water from the store in BC (sorry I don't know the name)?
I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list we keep on Page 1, Post 15.
There are a couple of options for purchasing water at the resort- small cases as has been mentioned, or you can purchase a gallon of water and fill reusable water bottles to bring to the parks.
I haven't used any of the many grocery services available, but you can find lots of info in the Grocery Delivery FAQ post:
I believe it is around $2.95 per gallon. Keep in mind that you can refill water bottles for free at either the YC or BC market's Coke Freestyle machines.Thank you!

Thanks! We'll try to refill but my wife is funny about the 'taste' of her water so if she doesn't like it I'll need a backup. We'll probably get a couple gallons for in the room and then try that and if it doesn't meet her expectations then we can always buy more.I believe it is around $2.95 per gallon.

Glad you had a good time! Was your BB for Free Dining or a room discount? I ask because I called, based on the BB left in our room for a discount but was told that at this time the only BBs were for FD. We checked out of BC yesterday BTW.We just got back last week from our usual August stay. We were at Art of Animation, but booked a BB to return to the Beach Club next August!!!! Last time we stayed at BC, I was pregnant with our DS, and for next years' stay he will be 5!!!! Time flies, but I am excited for him to stay at BC (outside of the womb, lol). I think he will love SAB for sure. Our girls are excited about the return as well!
