I have an off topic question for some experts. I have tried too many sources of information for locations of fastpass+ kiosks - everyone seems to have three locations in common and then some others that I can not confirm. I figured I would just use the locations on the actual Disney Park Maps for download from the Disney website, but they do not have very many kiosk symbols on their maps.

For instance the kiosk in the Storybrook circus tent. It does exist, right?
Is there a kiosk in the Guest Relations at City Hall on Main street?
Is there a kiosk in the Town Square Theatre on Main Street?
They open and cover kiosks frequently, so I think that's why it's so hard to find a map and/or reliable info on locations. In the parks, I've used the MDX app to locate the nearest kiosk, and that's always worked. You can find it under the "Guest Services" tab.

:welcome:

I don't have you on the Be Our Guest list, so I will add you.

:cool1:

That's a good question about the walk from BC to YC. I don't know. I have only done it from lobby to lobby and outside along the lakeside back of the resort. Can anyone answer about the walk from bus stop to bus stop at the front of the resort?
Thank you natebenma!! It took some talking to convince my family to try BCR because we love BWI so much, lol. I'm so excited about staying there in December.

    Do you have a room view for any of the BC villa's? DVC members. We have never stayed here before and are planning on spending a lot of time at the resort itself and would love to have a room to view the lagoon/Boardwalk. Thank you!

    This is a pretty good resource joannjoe. Our favorite view has been the courtyard facing the Beach Club (toward the Solarium)

    Thanks. The app shows the three or four locations, not the additional locations. After watching some utube videos, it seems that some locations are unmanned setups with iPads that guests can access MyDisney experience in order to schedule the first three fast passes. But the location by Petes Silly Sideshow seems to be viable and not displayed by Disney on maps or in MyDisney experience.

    So you are YC-CL in December? They better be finished with that work by then if they start in September like we are thinking they are going to do. You should get the best of the renovation work to enjoy during your stay. Of course all bets are off if they delay the start-up but I don't think they would do that unless there was something major happening that they need to correct first before beginning the work. We'll just have to stay tuned in and see what is posted by those who are going to be there in late August. I'm sure that group will be all over this renovation project (maybe engaging the workers in another pool-noodle fight?).

    Thanks for your reply. I surely hope that you're right on the start time of the renovations. After going through a bad experience during Boardwalk renovations, I would like to avoid that issue again.

    Hi all.. starting to plan for summer 2016 and was wondering if all renovations will be done by then? We usually stay at the Yacht Club but I saw that work may be done there starting Fall 2015. Are we better off choosing the BC? The YC is particularly cheap during the dates we chose which actually makes me concerned... maybe something is planned that I'm not aware of?

    Thanks!

    Only 6 days to go before we arrive at BC for 3 week holiday. As we are going to have to do some laundry during our stay is there a clothes airer in the rooms for clothes to get dry ? Thanks

    Teena, Bob, Jeanne and Lily are having a fantastic time on their holiday. They checked into the Grand Floridian yesterday, had a little pool time, met some princesses, rode the Mine Train and dined at Be Our Guest.

    I'll post some more pictures later, but this one can't wait!

    Our view from the FP+ area on 6/18. No crane.

    That is a gorgeous picture!!!

    :goodvibes:


    We received the letter about the BCV construction a few months ago; I don't remember exactly. But, it wasn't recent.
    Thank you!

    :)
    I will be on a plane headed to the the Beach Club in 8.5 hrs. I hope to be sitting at SAB by 9:30:yay:pixiedust::beach:
    Wishing you safe travels! Have a fantastic trip!

    :woohoo:

    :welcome: back!

    Hard to say if the YC renovations will be done by then since the work has not started yet. I think the Beach Club work started in October 2014 and is expected to wrap up in August/September. Work is currently happening on the 2nd (and maybe 1st floor, not sure).

    My guess is that if the YC work does start in early fall, renovations will be done in most sections of the resort by the end of the summer, but the rooms on lower floors could still be under construction.

    Hope that helps.

    :thumbsup2

    There is a line that you can pull across the shower to dry some items like bathing suits, but I don't know that you will be able to dry large quantities using this. There are a few laundry rooms throughout the resort and I believe they have all been upgraded to the high-tech machines. You can monitor the cycles through your My Disney Experience account if you have online access through a computer or smart phone.

    :offtopic::offtopic: Just wanted to post how relieved we are that the manhunt in our area is over. After 3 long weeks we can breathe a little easier. Now on to stressing about my sons wedding in Lake Placid on 7/11. Back on topic I am still checking out bar lounges to visit on our August trip. Any suggestions are appreciated

    Thank you to all the NYS law enforcement agencies involved in the search

    :offtopic:Question - not sure if I asked on this thread before or not...sorry if it's a repeat.

    I know many of you book your Disney vacations using that Magical group...I have sent them two requests now for a quote, and an email, and it's been over a week. There hasn't been anything from them except the automated "Thank you....someone will be contacting you shortly...yada yada yada" message.

    How long did it take for you to hear back from them? You can send me a PM if you prefer....

    Thanks in advance....

    Will the Brazilian Tour Groups (BTG's) be gone by the second week in August? I booked 8/6-10 to try to avoid them, but now I'm getting nervous that there will be some stragglers! I know it'll be crowded regardless, but I've been in July and just couldn't take it.
