The only hot foods at breakfast are oatmeal & grits. Well, also bagels that you can toast yourself, lol! They have hard boiled eggs but they are cold. Nothing
Ike pancakes or waffles, if that's what you're asking.
Yes, I had read there are different hot foods for breakfast at different resorts; so some had grits, some had oatmeal, some had hard boiled eggs, but not all resorts had the same offerings (for example some only had oatmeal). If that has changed, that's great, I was just wondering what YC's lounge had for breakfast.

Going to stay YC CL for the first time in April! I'm curious if we have a chance of getting a room that will have been refurbed already, or how much the refurb would impact access to the lounge... We stayed at Boardwalk during refurb so know what to expect, but we weren't CL that trip.

Also, has anyone stayed at YC CL after the lounge was redone and remember what the "hot" breakfast offering was?

:welcome: to this thread.

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list we keep on Page 1, Post 15

:cool1:

I just stayed YC CL and will be posting LOTS of pictures in over the next few days.

I was not able to find out too much about the upcoming refurb. Right now it is scheduled to start at the beginning of 2017. They are not saying yet if the renovations will be done floor by floor, like the Beach Club was done or wing by wing, like the recent project at the Beach Club Villas.

::yes::

We were there in September- they had both oatmeal & grits.

    Thanks, y'all! Breakfast will be our main time we are at the lounge, so I was just curious as I'm the main breakfast eater. lol

    Long time lurker, first time poster! First off, I love this thread as the BC is our absolute favorite Disney Resort. My DH and I are visiting 1/8-1/14. We are planning on doing Hoop-Dee-Doo and I was wondering what the most efficient way to get there was? We will be doing EPCOT earlier in the day and our Hoop-Dee-Doo reservation is at 8:30.
    If you are in Epcot around the time you would want to go to Ft Wilderness then you could take the Ft Wilderness bus from the Epcot bus depot. Once you get to FW you have to switch to an internal bus to take you to the Settlement area where Pioneer Hall is located. I would give yourself at least 45 minutes to an hour if you use this route. This is probably the most direct way to get to Hoop Dee Doo.

    If you are planning to go to FW from the BC via bus then take the bus to MK and either take the FW bus from the MK depot or take the boat to FW. Pioneer Hall is close to the boat dock. Give yourself at least and hour and a half with this route since the bus to MK can be slow that time of night and the boat takes a while, too.

    We took a bus from BC to MK then transferred to a boat. It was very enjoyable. Plus the boat drops you right near the restaurant so no need for an internal bus. But you def need to plan well for timing your transportation.

    Yep, she is right, same food as the Beach Club CL offers no real food difference between the two CL besides themes

    We recently returned from an amazing two weeks at the BCV's. Does anyone have an update as to why the "over 18" hot tub at SAB isn't working? The temp. wasn't even lukewarm, it was cooler than bath water. And yet, still turned on and functioning. I asked two days in a row, the lifeguards didn't seem to know, but one was hesitant and said he thinks they're waiting on a part, but sure didn't sound convincing when he said it. We love the hot tubs every day of our vacations, so does anyone know whats happening with this particular one? We were very surprised that it wasn't blocked off, it was that cold, just didn't make sense. And this was for the entire two weeks.

    Been back a few days now but so crazy busy with "real life"...lol

    Finally sorted out my notes on the RO BB deal for next year - no flyer in the room but I did manage to call back and get the dates. 2017 RO dates are as follows:

    January:
    1-4; 8-12; 16-19; 22-26; January 29-Feb 2

    Feb:
    5-8; 12-16; 20-23; Feb 26-March 2

    March:
    5-9; 12-16; 19-23; 26-30

    April/May/June:
    April 2-6; April 21-May 25
    May 29-June 30

    July/August:
    July 5-August 31

    Sept:
    4-30

    Dec:
    8-23

    30% of deluxes, 25% off moderates, and 20% off values.

    We didn't take advantage of the RO BB for next year as I'm not sure if we'll be returning to Disney next summer for our family vacation and honestly 30% off wasn't enough of a discount to entice me to book.

    As for our CL stay at the YC... We had a std view room and stayed in 5186 which overlooked the front entrance of the YC. Room had two queen beds and a chair (same set up as Dee's pic), was very clean and was in good shape, minor nicks on the furniture but nothing that really stood out. We really liked the look of the new lounge, offerings were fine but we still find Sugar Loaf at the GF to have the best Club offerings! While there, we got to chat with some CM's that we remembered from past stays and were able to get some "scoop", FWIW.

    We asked about the current Gartner convention, and it looks like they'll be returning to BC/YC again next year around the same week as this year. Overall, we weren't bothered by any of the conventioneers, and they were EVERYWHERE, but I will say that the loud DJ music they were playing in the front parking area (over by the buses), was annoying at times and could be heard very clearly in our room even with the sliders closed.

    We asked about the delay of room renovations and were told that certain convention contracts forbid any sort of renovations within the resort while the convention is taking place and that was one of the specific stipulations of Gartner. We also asked about the convention that took place in August (it was a young group of accountants) and we were told that they have already signed a 2-3 year (August) contract to return to the BC/YC so expect less availability in Mid August of next year. Any validity to all this? Who knows, but thought I'd share.

    Weather was PERFECT, couldn't have asked for any better. One thing I purposely wanted to take note on this trip was crowd levels as I was somewhat curious as resort availability was so scarce that I thought for sure crowds would be insane. Well, IMHO, I found the complete opposite. Even though we had FP's at each park, we were able to walk on most of the headliners at each park. MK: with the exception of 7DMT, we walked onto every other ride and show we wanted. AK: again, walk-on every single ride and show. Epcot: pretty much the same, with the exception of the Frozen ride, we were even able to get on Soarin' one night with less than a 40 min wait. HS: walked onto everything with less than a 30 min wait, including TSM!

    F&W was a blast, we visited quite often on different days and even spent Saturday night, 10/15, there and didn't find any of the food lines to be long at all. All in all, we had a nice trip, much more on the go the first half as we were with friends, but once they left, DH & I got to really slow down and "smell the roses".

    We did book an agency exclusive room at the BC for the same week next year once I found out the BB excluded October again so Dee, when you have a chance, please add us to the BOG list October 14-19, 2017, for now!

    Sorry for the long post!!

    Hello

    I have a question that I know my YC/BC friends can help with! I have always stayed at the YC. We are going this July with a package from "that agency". They only have BC available which I was happy to take :) I will have a group that will have children as well as elderly people. Is there a way to get to the YC bus stop so that they have a better chance of getting a seat? Would you go outside or through the lobbies? About how long would it take? Thanks for any help!

    My wife and I are staying in a BCV studio over Easter 2017 (April 13-17) and we're super-excited to be walking distance to Epcot and Hollywood Studios for the first time! We booked Easter dinner at Cape May Cafe and plan to spend a lot of time at Epcot over the course of our visit - soaking in the Flower & Garden Festival. Any recommended must-dos during our visit?

    Here's my mini report on the DVC forum when I got back, let me know if you have questions!

    "We've been members there since 2003 and this was the best room experience we've ever had. We were in our requested area for a studio, right by the elevator on the third floor, close to the lobby, woods view. I LOVED the renovated room!! So many years, by the end of our trip, our room is totally cluttered. Not this time. There was tons of storage. We were kind of shocked at the small drawers at first, but then quickly just rolled our shirts and shorts, and it worked out perfectly. I used the drawers underneath the coffee table and bedside table for misc. stuff, worked out fantastic. I also loved the mattress topper, SO comfortable. We used the table for breakfast every morning and the room felt very spacious for the two of us. The best thing I packed was an old fashioned light up digital clock. I have to know the time in the middle of the night, or all day for that matter, and don't want to check my phone for it. I'll bring that back each trip. Stayed for two weeks, trash and towel came right on time. They brought back the ice water downstairs before you get on the elevator, a much appreciated small thing when its hot. Used either the villa pool and Stormalong Bay every afternoon. Two of the SAB hot tubs were malfunctioning, but I'm sure will be up and running soon. I was never so happy to see one of them "over 18 only", so welcomed!! but that was the one that the temp. wasn't working, they said they were waiting for a part to come in. We were there during the hurricane, Disney did a phenomenal job entertaining families and feeding them. I say well done to DVC on updating my second home!!"
