Thanks for the help with the HS timing. Walking does seem best and you don't have to wait for anything. When we were at YC last, the skyliner wasn't built yet. Just wondering, picturing where it was to be built, does it affect the walk from YC/BC to Epcot or it is still a short, straight walk?
It only changes the walk by naturally getting you to slow or stop to admire how cool the Skyliner is.....lol!!!

When you are walking from YC to Epcot, the Skyliner passes above you. As you approach the IG entrance, the Skyliner station is to the left. It is on a slight incline. But you just walk straight to IG as before.

the “shortcut” through the pool area to get to the HS path. Take a right, no shortcut needed. You’ll pick up the path just behind the Atlantic Dance Hall.

Not sure where this shortcut is? does it save time or distance? TIA

The "shortcut" through the BW; take a left just past the BW green and before the Screen Door store, take your first right past Wyland Galleries, you'll go by the gym and arcade on your left. The pool will be in front of you and you'll want to stay left on the path. You'll come right into the walkway to HS. You can't miss it, otherwise you'll be in the canal.

This shortcut saves you about 5 minutes when walking the BW way, but the shortcut doesn't come in to play if taking the right from the YC heading toward SD bridge.

I just booked two spontaneous trips for my girls birthdays, after my bad YC stay in August I was given two free nights so why not. Staying at BCV (first time) Feb. 11-14, and YC March 12-14.
So glad to have you back!

I'll add you to the list.

:goodvibes


We just booked a stay at the BC in Early June for my Crew of 5. Celebrating my oldest graduating from College, my middle graduating from HS. Youngest is 15, so its like a 5 adult trip. We have a Q-Q-Daybed/Sofa reserved, hoping (*fingers crossed) that a nice upgrade might be available. Been to WDW many times both off and on property. Looking forward to our first time at BC!

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

I'm late getting to this thread! I have 4 nights booked at the YC for February - 2/6 - 2/10 - a girls only trip with my best friend :hug: . Stayed at the Beach Club many years ago with the family, but this is my first stay at the Yacht. Really looking forward to the trip. I've been fortunate to have several trips on my AP this year, even with the closure, but I think this will be the last for a while.

Thanks for all the great info!!
:welcome:

I'll add you to the list!

I must have failed to provide our October dates: 7-15, 2021 - BCV. Sadly, our May trip will be at BWV. . .tried for BCV, but DH wants his turn at his favorite. I like BWV, but the shower/toilet area in the studios is so dark and small. :headache:
Got it!

::yes::


We just booked a studio at Beach Club Villas for the week of memorial day. Any word if when the hotel opens more dining offerings will open? Cape May? Yatchsmans? I read the hotel opens the 30th and we check into the Villa side on the 30th.
:welcome: to posting here!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.

Hopefully we will know in the coming months about whether resort restaurants will start reopening.

:thumbsup2


A few pix while I wait stand by Ale & Compass.

AK in the morning then transfer to CR . I’ll post pix there if interested .

YC has been great for park hopping !

These are awesome!

If you don't mind, I'll add a couple of these to the first page posts.

I call that seating area with the two chairs "Mark's Corner" My husband sat there and caught up on work emails while I was taking one last dip at SAB on our departure day.


:thanks:

We just got back from probably my favorite Disney vacation ever! Our flight landed early and we walked right on to the Magic Express. We checked in at roughly 10 am and were pixie dusted with an upgraded room. We were booked a standard view, and were upgraded to a garden view club level room! It had views of the Boardwalk. We had the best experiences with transportation this trip also, never waited more then 5 mins for a bus or boat. The crowds were low and the weather was probably the chilliest we have ever had. It was very comical to see all the Floridians dressed in long coats and hats. Coming from Ohio it felt like spring to us, granted we were a little cold (esp. on the boats) but we made do. Lesson learned to pack some hoodies or long pants just incase next time. Mobile ordering was also a feature we enjoyed, we had no issues with it. We did order some drinks and snacks from Publix (via instacart) for the room, we opted out of the mug this time just for the fact we couldn't refill it ourselves and didn't want to hassle with it. I can't wait to plan our next vacation!!

    Love that! Mark’s corner 👍

    You can use any pix you’d like !

    We realized for transport now with buses holding less this was a greet split. YC was pretty and convenient and decent food options as well.
    Glad we went back because we had a great time !

    The shortcut is shorter for people staying at the Beach Club villas or the BC resort rooms that are closest to Epcot. It is not shorter for people staying at the Yacht Club.

    If you are staying at the Yacht Club then just turn right, toward the Dolphin, cross the bridge between YC and Boardwalk, then follow the sidewalk that goes along the waterway. That is the shortest route.

    If you are staying at the BCV, exit the villas building and take the sidewalk that goes between the Beach Club and Epxot. You will come out near the bridge between Boardwalk and BC. Head toward the Boardwalk and when you get to the grassy area in front of Wylands Gallery, turn left and go through opening that leads to the main pool. Follow the sidewalk to the left around the pool and you will see the walkway to Hollywood Studios. This path is a little shorter for guests at that end of the BC resort. :) It is also the best way to go if you are coming from the Epcot International Gateway. :)

    This is the way!

    I was fortunate to have @Wood Nymph personally show me this route during my last trip to the resort.

    How are busses to MK generally for yacht club? Long waits? I’m looking at possibly staying here solo with a 20 month old in April. Will be splitting our time between EP and MK and time at the hotel. We are trying to decide between yacht club and Poly. (Poly is 200 more but I’m worried about that pool and DD as I heard the kids area isn’t good for a 20 month old)

    how crowded is the pool and the sand area? Even though I’ll be with my DD in the pool, is there bigger kids running around like crazy that she may easily get accidentally knocked over or will she have a bit of her own space to play in the water and sand? And for those who have small ones, how messy does the sand and water make the kids? Is it easy to clean the sand off them before going back to the room?

    The sandy area of the pool is a large area with plenty of room for kids to play in. It is also a great area to get tables and chairs because it usually isn't crowded. It is near the Yacht Club side of Storm Along Bay. Your daughter will have plenty of space for herself. :)

    The older kids tend to hang around the area closest to the Beach Club, where they play games, including volleyball. The waterslide is over there, too.

    I don't know if the sand in the zero entry pool is different but the sand at the bottom of the pools is more like fiberglass (maybe?) so it doesn't stick too much and it isn't really messy like "normal" sand.

    Has anyone taken the Magical Express to Yacht Club lately? About how long did it take including the line at the airport? Was it very crowded? I’m worried with dealing with luggage that it takes longer now. Thanks!

    We took it to the BC [BCV] on 1/6. Picking up your own luggage does add time now but the actual ME wait and trip to BC was quicker than normal. Our luggage pickup was in terminal A and ME is in terminal B. From plane departure, picking up luggage and walking to ME it took about 20 - 25 minutes. We came in to terminal A, down to level 2 for luggage, wait for luggage, back up to level 3 to cross over to terminal B, down to level 1 and then the long walk to ME check in.

    So excited to be staying here at the end of the month for the first time! We will be staying in a water view room and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on which room to request to get the best view?
