Is there a way to use Touring Plans to make a general request. I just see the button to ask for a specific room and, since they only show one connecting room, none of them are exactly what I want. Thanks.
They don’t actually request a specific room for you though. When you select the room you want it words the request by the features, eg “balcony”, “close to lobby” etc. They give multiple room numbers or a range as examples

I am wondering if it’s possible to put a tension rod with a blackout curtain in the doorway from entryway to bedroom area in the BCV Studios?

My little one will be sleeping in a crib or mattress in the entryway area and I want to be able to keep the area dark if we are watching TV etc.

If so, do you think a 36” rod will work?
I measured the same point on my lightsaber and the opening in our room was 40.75 inches. So a 36” rod probably won’t work. I would keep in mind that all the rooms can vary just because of tolerances in construction.

Disney resort bell services will no longer hold 3rd party deliveries for guests. That includes groceries, rental strollers, ECVs, etc.; dropping off or picking up from bell services will not be allowed, either.

    Practically speaking it means you’ll have to meet the delivery person at the resort, if you’re referring to the article on another site. The headline was a bit misleading and a bit scaremongering imo.

    Admittedly it is kind of annoying because I like to put our Instacart order in when we land at MCO, but now that I think about it, we tend to arrive at the resort on DME at the same time as the delivery driver. I do that for bottled water and was planning on it again at BC in November.

    Edit: according to Garden Grocer’s FB page the new policy is not affecting grocery delivery, just mobility devices and strollers.

    This change only affects ECV, wheelchair and stroller deliveries. Groceries, Amazon, etc are not affected.

    Unreliable info came from a Disney blogger. 😦

    Edit-they updated their post and included the message from Garden Grocer with clarification that only mobility services will be affected, as Disney has signed an agreement for an "exclusive" mobility vendor for Disney resorts.

    I just returned from a three night stay. Mother/daughter trip and we just went to Epcot to enjoy Food and Wine. We were in room 3699. Two queen beds, no couch/pull out, and full balcony. I did not make any room requests for this stay, but if we stay here in the future I'll request something close to the lobby. From the room you could see the Swan/Dolphin and it overlooked the main pool. But you couldn't really see the pool, mostly you could just see roof. We didn't use the balcony at all - lovebugs EVERYWHERE! The room was pretty far from the lobby and was right next to a service room/elevator. The common wall was the wall with the TV and mirror and thankfully not the beds. Often when we were taking an afternoon break the whole wall with the TV would shake because staff was busy moving cleaning carts, etc. Not constant or loud, just startled us at first! We had a Keurig coffee maker which was nice. The coffee wasn't amazing, but 100% better than those old coffee makers. We had "full sized" bath products (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar of soap, mouth wash, and lotion). Our room was serviced midday and we had turn down service each night (beds turned down, TV on to the resort channel, and chocolates). I don't remember having turn down service last year when we stayed at the BC. Two things I just don't like about BC are - lack of QS space and the lobby smell (to me it smells like burnt cookies). On our check out day we spent some time in the solarium which was nice and quiet (and cool) compared to the busy main lobby. We didn't get refillable mugs, but I noticed a lot of the Halloween mugs. Anther observation was character voices in the elevators announcing the floor level. Cracked us up! Overall we had a lovely time at BC.

    39 days until our first stay at the Yacht Club! We are so excited to experience this resort, as well as the Skyliner. Even though we know it’s faster to walk or take the boat to HS, I think one day we will take it from the IG to CB and then hop on the line to HS just so we can enjoy the ride.

    When I want to do this I just request any random room, and then change what is in the subject line and body text of the fax request form. TP will still think I am requesting a specific room, but it is not noted in the text anymore.
    Thanks. Never used the reservation finder before. Just did as you suggest. Hoping for the best!

    The admiral suite 😍
    Really nice. I love when you get an upgrade. We did last year. We had garden view, they upgraded up to water view looking out towards the volleyball court and lake in Beach Club. We could have tried Club Level for extra but we were happy with what we got.

    What's it like at the International Gateway entrance when the Sky liner is up and running? Did they add more turnstiles? Is there a separation from resort guests and the skyliner or does everyone meet in the middle by the ticket booths and the boats?

    We love staying at the BC and walking over to Epcot not having a large crowd trying to get through the entrance.

    It will be interesting for sure. There were three security lanes running when we were there. Two for bags and one without. I think they had three lanes for ticket scanning but only two were being used. I could be wrong on this. I would think with how fast that skylines runs it will be crowded at peak times.

    YC lobby refurbishment



    Obviously, they are sprucing up for my arrival

    TWO 👏 WEEKS 👏 FROM 👏 TO👏DAY 👏!!!

    :woohoo:





    But seriously, is this work still going on- are there areas of the lobby still under tarps or curtains?

    If so, I want to update Page 1, but I don't want to do this if the work is finished or nearly done.


    🔨👏
    Just walked in and the globe is back in the lobby and the screens are down! All seems back to normal here. We came last night to eat at Yachtsman and it was being worked on so looks like it finished overnight!
