In other news tickets for the Halloween party are on sale now. Disney RAISED the prices and Tiered the dates.
The closer to Halloween= the greater the price increase.

For those of you with annual passes or have DVC there are some discounts for certain early dates.
Those of you that are just the unwashed masses like Ninja Mom are out of luck and out of cash

This thread has been so very helpful. We are so excited for our first Beach Club trip in just 18 days. I have re-read the first page, and I'm thinking that I may have made a mistake in doing online check in. Because I have never been here before, I would prefer to check in in person. I requested a full balcony and a higher floor in our standard room reservation both on the reservation and on the online check in form.

Is there a way to undo the online check in? Thanks for this wonderful thread.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I'm not sure there is a way to undo the online checkin. Even if you have done the advanced checkin, I believe you can still go to the front desk to ask about your room to see if your request were met, and if not, to see if something else is available.

    Make sure your phone in requests also match your requests as well.

    Good morning!! Quick question about adding days to your ticket: can you do that at the front desk of the Beach Club or should you go to guest services right outside The World Showcase? Does it matter if you use the ticket first? I know I should know these answers but it's something we have never had to do.
    Just helped my cousin book a trip and she said "I want to stay where you stay!!" She was in love with the hotel from all our pictures. Who wouldn't be, it's the best!

    No, there is no way to undo online check in or change those requests. But no problem, you can still go to the front desk. Have Fun

    They can not upgrade them at the front desk. Go to Guest Services outside of the entrance of World Showcase. If you bought your tickets from a ticket reseller at a discount the strategy is to use them at least once first. Know what you paid for them and what the current gate price is. Once they are used at least once, the CM should "bridge" the ticket price so that you only pay the current cost to upgrade. It is a bit of a savings. If you bought them from Disney, it makes on difference.
    Good Luck

    My daughter went to the Concierge desk at the BC and they were able to add a day to their tickets. It was very convenient. The tickets had already been used when they did this. You can also do it at any ticket booth or guest relations window. :)

    Soooooo.... Our Stay at the Poly has turned into a split stay with BC :)

    I mean the Poly was lovely, but we had a breakfast at Cape May yesterday morning, and went for a walk after and just felt more wowed than we did arriving at the Poly.

    So we made the switch, somehow got some money back(!), and settled down at Stormalong for a Sunken Treasure and some pool time before Dinner at Yachtsman.

    I think we've found our new home at WDW :)

    While at the Poly Concierge making the changes we got a massive pinch of Pixiedust, we were randomly selected for complimentary tickets to the After Party at MK!! Then when checking in at BC, we somehow got a Garden View looking over the garden at the Volyball Court, with a view of the lake of you look left.

    BC somehow got us a lot of magic!!

    For some strange reason I seem to love stories of people who like the BC better than the Poly. ;)

    Congrats on your pixie dust upgrade. We got a GV room by the volleyball courtyard with a view of the lagoon to the left. That is a good location. :)

    Yeah it's a stunning view. We are looking to the left too! I haven't worked out of we can get to the 'secret' Epcot exit easily yet though!!

    Does anyone have an update as to whether CM's for Club Level meet you at the entrance and walk you up to check in? If so, do they still do this if you checked in online?

    We will be in Orlando a few days before our trip so we're trying to figure out if we should cab it to YC our first day, drop off our luggage and walk over to Epcot to get on a few rides before check in. Or, like we did last time, meet a CM at the entrance and be escorted to the Club Level where we can eat breakfast, maybe check in, or at least drop our luggage off. Thoughts?

    Thanks so much!

    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It seems mostly there are CMs in the lobby that will escort you to the Club Level Check In if you ask them. And whether there is a greeter or not is independent of Online Check In.

    I would be prepared for either scenario.

    Hi Dee (and everyone else)! If you wouldn't mind adding us to the be our guest list for Jen's 4th annual birthday extravaganza 10/22-10/29. This time it is just my husband and myself. Never done an adults only trip before...I am so excited and my non-Disneyphile DH is...tolerant. ;)

    Someone asked this over on the BC Deluxe and Suite thread. Does anyone have any info on the 1 Bedroom Suite since the renovation?

    I am having trouble finding it on this thread, but does anyone have current images and layout information for the BC club level 1BR suite? Does it really only sleep 3, instead of the 4 that a standard room would accommodate? I'm hoping the images I found were old and incorrect.
    That's a great question. I don't know the answer to this since the room renovation- I know the occupancy was only 3 prior to the refurbishment.

    The Disney website lists up to 4 guests, but I wouldn't necessarily take this as gospel, because the listing on other room types and descriptions of views is not correct.

    I'll post this over on FAQ thread to see if anyone knows.

    Thats the area we were in for our '14 visit. Loved it! I spent a lot of time on that balcony, "looking left" and enjoying the stunning view!

    Hi Dee :flower1:

    Thanks for posting the pictures. Are you sure this isn't a studio? I thought the 1 bedroom villa had a full kitchen?
