I have the Epcot Destinations discovered tour booked for March 16th for me DH, and DD17. It starts at 8:15am, so before park opening. Anyone know if we'll be able to go through the International Gateway entrance prior to park opening or do we need to get to the front of the park? We need to meet our tour guide at the Innoventions East guest relations location. TIA for any advice!

You can absolutely get in to meet the tour via the IG. Did it last February. The CMs working the gate will have your names on a list.

    Hi everyone! I was looking at the map posted earlier in the thread and it looks like there's only 1 laundry room for YC. Is that right?

    Thanks!

    Yippee! They added more rooms to the AP discount for April, so DH succumbed to the lure of SAB and finally agreed to the switch from a CSR std room to a YC WV room. Almost doubled the cost of the trip, but YC is worth it, right? The Disney Math says it’s a great idea. LOL.

    Any suggestions on requests for a SV CL room? I've looked at the pictures on the room thead (big thanks to Dee for those!). Does anyone know if there are any SV CL on the lake side of the resort? I looked at the map and it looks like there may be a few but wasn't sure if anyone had stayed in one. Or maybe I misread the color coding. Darned eyes are getting old!

    Hiya. Do they still sell the big gallon plastic bottles of spring water in the shop at Beach Club?

    Is it the mounted shampoos/soaps in the Beach Club Resort (non-DVC) roooms? Do they have lotion? Is it separate shampoo and conditioner? Do you still get bar soap?

    thanks!

    Room request help!

    We have a Garden/Woods view room booked at YC (4/20-4/25)... any suggestions on requests or a location we should aim for?

    I was thinking of something away from the elevator bc I don’t like noise and maybe an upper floor?

    Very excited and starting to count down the days!

    Thanks!!!

    I’d request one that overlooks the gazebo. That would put you on the lake side of the building. We had one once that was in the front of the resort. Straight out was a line of trees and to our right if we looked straight down was a strip of grass. Nothing to really look at but we had a really large balcony! Only draw back was the loading dock must have been on the other side of the trees so was a bit noisy early in the am.

    Early am noise? Perfect wake up call for rope drop! Lol.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Add me to the guest list for June 20-21, 2020. I booked BC for a quick overnight and asked about renting a cabana for a half day (10 am - 2 pm) for June 21. I wasn't sure if I could get it - but I thought it might be nice with us switching to the Riviera resort for the rest of our week that day (its our DVC homecoming trip there). With an annual pass discount, it was $180 (and some change) for the half day, so rates must have increased. We enjoyed our visit to Yacht so much last August, its nice to come back even for a day to our favorite pool on property!
    :welcome: to posting on the thread!

    Will do!

    What a great plan for the start of your trip.

    :fish:

    We're heading to Beach Club for two nights, May 29-30, before we do 7 nights at the Villas at Grand Flo (our DVC home resort). I've been to BCV a couple of times before I was married, but this will be my wife and kiddos' first time there. (And my first time in a non-villa). Very excited to take the kids to Stormalong Bay!
    :welcome:

    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list we keep on Page 1, Post 15.

    :cool1:



    Hi! Please add us to the list. We are staying at the Yacht Club 8/14 - 8/22. First time staying at a deluxe resort. It will be myself, DH, and two DD (8 and 10).
    :welcome:

    I'll add your trip to the list.

    :woohoo:


    Please add me to be our guest - 9/8/20-9/12/20 Beach club standard room.
    We usually go DVC thanks to my very generous parents allowing us use of their points but I was able to grab a great deal for us and thanks to late running school construction my kids are heading back to school mid-September instead of before Labor Day.

    if I make a day bed and full balcony or patio our only requests, is there a decent chance to get them?
    :welcome:

    Will do!

    Is the daybed or balcony a higher priority for you or are they both equal?

    I would suggest listing the most important one first for your room request- for example:

    "Full balcony please, daybed if possible"

    I don't know the percentage of rooms at the resort that have both a full balcony and a daybed, but I have had rooms with both.

    :goodvibes


    Disney math got me again! Switched up our plans and changed from BC GV to BC SV CL from 8/30-9/7. Between an agency exclusive and eating more in the lounge, the change is "practically" a wash, lol!
    Love it!

    :dogdance:

    Any suggestions on requests for a SV CL room? I've looked at the pictures on the room thread (big thanks to Dee for those!). Does anyone know if there are any SV CL on the lake side of the resort? I looked at the map and it looks like there may be a few but wasn't sure if anyone had stayed in one.

    I have trouble interpreting those maps too! The colors are too close to one another in some instances.

    :magnify:

    Do you have an upcoming trip booked?

    As far as I know, you can still purchase the gallon bottles of water. If you don't see any out, ask at the checkout counter.

    I don't think the BC/YC has switched over to the wall-mounted toiletries yet, small bottles of shampoo, conditioner and bars of soap are still available. Lotion is hit or miss. If you don't get any and want some, you could try calling housekeeping or leaving a note.

    Do you have an upcoming trip you would like to add to the list?

    ::yes::

    Does anyone know if there are magical enhancements going on at the Yacht Club? We are arriving March 7 to 13 and received a phone call this morning telling us this info and that they will be moving us to Beach Club. Not quite sure I want to stay at the BC so I thought I would put it out there in case anyone has heard. It is a group reservation I have but I’m not sure I believe there reason is true.

    :oops: We have YC CL booked March 6-12 and haven't heard anything...I'll be keeping my phone nearby today!! My guess is that they are oversold. I also wouldn't be too thrilled with a BC move, unless they gave an upgrade or something. Interesting...
