Hi, could anyone confirm where I can get a gallon of distilled water at Yacht Club?
When I was there in April, I had to buy it over in the Boardwalk store. I think it's called the Mercantile. The little store in the yacht club did not carry it.

Wanted to report on my recent BC stay. For some quick background, I'm a mostly YC person (multiple trips) with one small BC stay in 2016. For whatever reason BC just has never called to me/us that much - the lobby always bugs me how busy it is, we like the sandy side of SAB better which is closer to YC, I consider the limited balconies a somewhat material negative, etc. But I must say we really enjoyed the stay. Not perfect, but pretty darn good. DW even started saying "why don't we ever stay here, it's great."

We were traveling with friends who booked one of the 2BR suites, I booked a Garden/Woods View. Our room requests were close to the lobby and adjoining rooms / traveling with the other party. We ended up with the rooms shown below. Since the other bank of 2BRs is on the very far end of BC (towards Epcot) - this location and the fact our rooms were right across the hall were absolutely perfect - this part of BC is just steps from everything. Major good luck/fortune from the room assignors on that one.

Our room was in good condition, minus a few dents and dings (nothing major).

Do all BC rooms have the "short" commodes?

Not sure I had seen these stickers on the room fridges before.

I did miss having a balcony. Didn't hate it, but didn't love it either.

Not bad for a "garden or woods view."

I had a room on the floor above you with full balcony. I didn’t realize we could see the Epcot fireworks until our last night when we were in our room packing :o

Ha! Same here. We had been in Epcot every other night during our stay but stayed in the last night just packing up/early to bed. I was surprised.

Could someone remind me of this, but was there a bus to Disney Springs after 4PM from the parks? The amount of times I have to explain the current process makes me question my memory. As I can not recall if there a bus there and vice versa. Ill say this for now incase no one knew but as it stands right now there is No direct bus from any Park to DS. lol

I thought I’d stop in and share a little about our experience at BC thus far. We’ve been here since Wednesday after staying at Pop since Saturday. The resort is clean—we haven’t seen any trash bags left outside of room doors and we often see CMs circling and emptying common trash receptacles. On Tuesday we were in our room when a CM stopped for a room inspection. He was thorough. He asked if we experienced any water leaks and if lights, patio door, and alarm were working. I told him I hadn’t tested the smoke alarm. Lol. We received housekeeping yesterday—towels and toiletries replaced and trash emptied. They did not make the beds; whereas, at Pop our beds were made.
Not many guests seem to put away their towels when leaving Stormalong, but we managed to find chairs fairly easily both times we visited. The line for Hurricane is painful.

Ask a cast member in the Yacht Club gift shop. Sometimes things are in the back and not on display.

And as PP said, if the cast member in the Yacht Club gift shop says they don't have it - try asking a cast member in the Beach Club Marketplace before going over to BoardWalk.

    Can anyone there now tell me if they are selling cases of water at the Marketplace? I saw on page one of this thread that you can buy 8 12 oz. bottles of water for $4.49 but that information is from July, 2018. I’m back and forth between getting water delivered and just buying some at the Marketplace. We only need water so I’m not sure if I want to go the delivery route.

    DVC members staying at BCV can place grocery orders which we believe are filled at the Marketplace. We look at the grocery order form as an indication of what is available for purchase in the Marketplace. I can't swear that everything on the grocery order form is in the store, but it lists an 8-pack of 12 ounce bottles of Dasani water for $4.79.

    Hopefully someone who is there now can confirm.

    I think a "case" of water usually is 24 bottles. I don't recall the gift shops selling packages of 24 bottles in the recent past.

    Hi, I’m starting to collect the items to mail to ourselves (so the suitcases are not so full). BUT I thought I had read that the BC (not BCV) used those coffee pods (flat tea bags for coffee?). Are all the rooms now using Keurig? That would be fabulous. I almost bought pods today. Just need a confirmation, please. September 5th -12th is coming up fast! Thanks

    Don't forget there is Speedway within walking distance. If you want to avoid trying to really go anywhere.

    They used to use the flat coffee bags, but removed those machines awhile ago. The resort rooms now have the Keurig type machines using K-cups. :)

    We arrived yesterday for a one night stay at BC. The plan was to visit Epcot, swim and then return to the park. We waited and waited for a room ready text but by 4:00 we still hadn’t received it (and no notification on MDE) so we changed into swim suits at the poolside restrooms. Finally received a text that one of our rooms was ready at 5:45. Hauled two families’ luggage into that one room and then grabbed a bite to eat at the Marketplace. It was almost 6:45 before the second room was ready. I have never waited that long for a room at Disney!

    There were people at the front desk yelling at the cast members about not having a room to shower in and get ready for dinner. When we returned from Epcot after the fireworks I went to the front desk to pay down our room balance. There was a man berating a cast member saying there was nothing he liked about this place and that he would never return.

    My key takeaway is that the BC location is as wonderful as ever (as is SAB) and that the cast members are doing an excellent job in some very stressful situations right now. My heart really goes out to them.

    I wish more people were like this and understood. Be nice to the people showing up for work at Disney and everywhere right now. Many people are still choosing not to and everywhere is understaffed. Be nice and try to be patient, people are doing their best. I’m not even sure what those people expect, front desk CMs don’t clean rooms and can’t do anything to get your room ready faster ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I would like to add that there are many reasons rooms are not ready yet , the number 1 reason is that people do not check out Until 11 am nothing will be done with with the room . So as guest we an all help the process by calling the front desk or stop by the front desk and telling them you are out of the room .
    They are way under staffed and many of the cast members you encountered on your most recent stay this resort is not their home resort . All of the issues are way beyond their control . Yelling or screaming and threatening not to stay at this resort again make you look childish , put yourself on the other side of this situation how would you respond . I have many CMs that are friends they all need our help and support to make things easier for all !

    I’ll be staying at YC for the first time as the second half of a split stay. I was planning on a pool day on switch day, but the reports of long waits for rooms has me rethinking that. I wanted a pool day, so we would have to rush out of Pop to make rope drop at a park with the added stress of packing and luggage transfer. I would hate to be stick without a room until 6pm without a room to shower in. That said, I certainly wouldn’t be screaming at CMs about it.

    The shower room at SAB is nice and clean!! It has all the toiletry and towels. In case your room is not ready early enough, you can always use the shower room. I have used that shower room three times during my week-long stay so all of my family members could get ready for our dinner reservation at once.

    Are you staying on the DVC side? If so, they don't do a full cleaning service. They only do trash daily and trash and towel & toiletries on day 4.

    CMs are the most valuable asset to WDW. All the CMs whom my family met during the trip were working so hard and delivered services beyond my expectation. I am also a firm believer that if I am kind and nice to others then I would be treated with the same manner in return.
