No, no balcony choice is listed at all (at least for the Yacht Club, maybe it is different for the Beach Club?). They have pool view, courtyard view, ground floor, lower floor, high floor, adjoining rooms, connecting rooms, connecting rooms guaranteed (yes, it's listed twice with one being guaranteed!), 2 queen beds, king bed, baby gate, near elevator. Nothing about being near the lobby, the daybed or balcony, of course all the three things I care about. o_O
No need to have the balcony request at YC- all rooms have full balconies except I believe one on Club Level floor. I believe larger balcony IS a request on the Beach Club Checkin.

::yes::

That is good to know thank you, I thought there were more rooms with no balconies at the YC. I think I will leave it be as we are 5 in the room all over 3 years old and hopefully the daybed will not be an issue. :cool:

    Any chance you can use the refillable mug for iced coffee there or anywhere?
    You would have to put ice in your mug and then add hot coffee to it to get iced coffee. Some people will get the coffee the night before and put it in the room's refrigerator to get cold. The Ale and Compass has hot coffee in the morning but doesn't have ice or a cold drink dispenser available for guests to use. The bartender would have to give you the ice.

    Disney World in general is lacking in large amounts of decent iced coffee...

    Off to get a final Sunken Treasure for the trip then a walk to World Showcase for Teppan Edo

    View attachment 188722 Good morning from BC!
    It's been a wonderful stay so far. We don't miss the alarm clocks at all (it's nice not to be too tied to time), we've eaten at FF THREE nights in a row (it's that good!), and I'm most looking forward to today. Today we have about 2 hrs in SAB, followed by a Soarin' FP, then World Showcase all day, only pausing for dinner at Coral Reef.....
    :cloud9:
    Oh wow! 3 nights - it must be good.

    We check in to Yacht Club tomorrow. It's our last night at Royal Pacific and in all honesty I can't wait to be away. We went to the pool yesterday. - erm it's only 4foot at the deepest point. We've had a really good time in the parks and the Express really does save a tonne of time. (It also helps to be friends with a few Team Members). I'm currently doing laundry as there are more machines here than at Yacht Club. The ironing may have to wait. See some of you real soon.

    I try to plan ahead and have some cool coffee in the room fridge. Sometimes I'll brew some extra in the room.

    But then we are lucky to live in Dunkin' country, so we are spoiled!

    Would love to hear what you ordered! We are going to try FF when we are there in October and would really appreciate some recommendations.

    Std WChrAcc RollIn OptHr 2Q DyBd

    Can anyone tell me where this room might be? To me, it appears to be a handicapped accessible room (we don't need this type of room but really don't mind getting it). Does this say 2 queen beds and a day bed? (DD17 will be thrilled to get a day bed). Will there still be a shower in this room? We need a shower ... not really a bath family:-) Any idea on location? We really are happy anywhere in beach club (great magical deal on a standard room, so happy with whatever we get). Wondering where it might be located. Thanks for your help. :-)

    Looks like - standard/wheel chair accessible/Roll in Shower/??/2 queens/day bed

    Don't recognize OptHr - but I'm sure someone else will...

    *Edit* OptHr is an accessibility option for hearing impaired guests. Visual cues like flashing lights and YYT phone access.

    DH loves his Dunkin iced coffee. He is on 2nd large one of the day. No coffee for me but their iced tea is awesome.

    Thank you for your help. When we check in, should I let them know that we don't need these accommodations? I would hate to take them from someone who needed them. We are happy regardless (day bed yeah!!!)
    Any idea where in the resort this room might be?

    Some beverages are available in the Ale & Compass lounge (Yacht Club lobby) in the early morning (6 am, I think). You can use your refill mug for coffee or tea. I'm not sure about soft drinks, I keep hearing different accounts about whether you can get things like Coke, diet coke, etc from this location.

    Thanks for the tip for "early risers"!:hyper::goodvibes

    But they run the risk of having NinjaMom suddenly jump out of the bushes and beat them senseless with a pool noodle.... :-)
    I'm on it!!

    Video of Stromalong Bay recently posted by Allearsnet:

    I see there are no restrictions on pool tubes IN the hot tub.
    Pro tip: try a pool tube in the hot tub! When people see you in the hot tub on a pool tube they usually start looking for another hot tub. Then you have the hot tub all to yourself.

    Florida's idea of an iced coffee is to pour hot coffee over ice. WTH!!! Doing the math here you now have very dilute luke warm coffee. This equals a coffee fail! This coffee is so weak, tasteless and ineffective it's completely useless. You would think in hot and steamy Florida they would embrace the concept of iced coffee but NOOOoooooOOOOooooo....

    What Ninja Mom needs is the resort rooms to come equipped with a Cuisinart coffee machine so she can put her Timmies pods in it and make her coffee the night before, stow it in the fridge and have a reason for living in the morning.

    We were put in a handicap accessible room with two queens and a daybed and roll in shower back in February. This room was on the first floor and just a couple of doors down from the Marketplace and main elevators. It was a really nice room and I loved the huge tiled shower. I did a review of the room in this thread:

    Beach Club Room Views

    the room number was 1668

    Thanks!! Perfect! Too late for the clothes pins for me for this trip, but I'm doing the rolling in the towel thing tonight after swimming! Clothes pins on list for next trip now!!
    I do the same thing, plus about halfway through the drying time (or before I go to bed), I hang them upside down after squeezing out the water that has gathered at the bottom. I guess that sounds kind of crazy, but it works really well! :)
