We'll be at YC one week from today. Can't believe it's almost here
We arrived at the BC yesterday and I can confirm it is open. It was a half hour wait last night at 9pm.According to a friend of mine who is there now, yes, Beaches & Cream takeout window atv the Beach Club IS open and is very crowded.
Left on Tuesday. At that point, the construction was directly behind the lobby - facing out to the dock where you catch the friendship boats - and on both sides. Could still use as entrance/exit but the sides were fenced off and it was noisy.Could someone please tell me if the TVs in the rooms at the Yacht Club are Smart TVs and/or if they have a USB port? I am working on my packing list and was thinking if we have lots of rain, we may want to return to the room for movies from Netflix or Disney+ to avoid being stuck in indoor crowds......wondering if I should pack a chromecast or if we'd be able to cast direct to the TV from our phones or iPad.
ALSO - wondering where the current scaffolding is for the outdoor refurbs....I saw a photo someone posted in a FB group yesterday and it looked like it was right in the area where we requested our room.....TP already sent our room request area so I guess there isn't much we can do about it now.
Oh no.....that would not be good for us. We intentionally booked the Water View room because we figured we would be spending more time than usual at the resort ...... how long are the scaffolds in a set place for....maybe we will be lucky and they will be gone next week. Does anyone know if Touring plans will attempt to send a fax again if you make a change?My brother stayed 2 nights at the YC 2 weeks ago, and they were doing the painting/maintenance directly in front of his room the entire time. One morning he and his son were in the room and a Constructiom worker climbed over from a cherry picket onto their balcony and startled them. One of the days they went back to nap and there was someone actually on their balcony and lots of noise, I believe he went out and asked them to come back later and the guy did. He was not warned of this when he checked in, and was quite irritated. He’s used to staying places like four seasons and was not thrilled with it, but at least he was just there 2 nights and we were in a 2BR villa at the BCV so he spent most of the time after we arrived in our room.
I know this isn’t the prevailing opinion here, but I think they should close a section of rooms for a couple of day stretch each and just get it all done, then move to the next section. Or grab people at check in that had standard views booked and offer them water view but with the cherry pickers/painting at the SV rate, or offer water view people at check in a SV rate if that is going on. Then instead of being annoyed a certain subset of people might be thrilled, amd it’s a win/win.
Certainly isn’t the prevailing opinion with me. I’m a pretty easy going traveler and I’ll usually roll with most anything, but scaffolding and active work occurring ON my balcony/right outside my balcony would cross the line for me. A day or two project, ok, not great but I get it/wouldn’t be a problem. But this exterior project has been more than that. From what I saw in July, certain sections should be closed (especially the scaffolding area) and/or something like what you describe seem reasonable, IMO.I know this isn’t the prevailing opinion here, but I think they should close a section of rooms for a couple of day stretch each and just get it all done, then move to the next section.

Happy Birthday!Checked in to the BC yesterday! Everything’s been great so far. My birthday is coming up on the 10th and when we got back from Disney Springs last night, there was a gift in the room from Mickey to me! It was a personalized birthday card, a BC/YC water bottle, a small bag of chips and a pack of cookies! I was so excited! We have spent multiple birthdays here for my boys and husband and they never got anything before. Today’s our first park day, but so far the Disney magic is still here! CM interaction has been great! Also, the bus to/from DS was prompt. We waited about 15 minutes to get one from the BC and when we left DS the bus was waiting on us!
Off to DHS today! BG 19! We are so excited!
