Every time I hear about the welcome beverage being offered, I just get giddy all over again. What an AWESOME view from your room!!!!!Hi everyone! We are home from our YC CL stay. I thought I'd pop in and post a few things about our experience. We arrived at the resort about 9:30 AM. There wasn't a CM waiting outside, but the valet called someone from bell services to take us up to the lounge. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure we could have just gone up on our own. Stopped at the desk to make sure everything was in order and were served the famous "welcome drink". Hello, let the vacation begin! As far as our room, we got a text that the room was ready at 8:30 AM (earliest ever!). We were given 5198, which is a garden view. The new rooms are very nice. I didn't think I'd be a fan of the flooring, but I actually kind of liked it once seeing it in person. 5198 has a king bed with a chair and a shower (no tub). We had requested a king room close to the lounge, so they did a good job accommodating these requests. All the CM's we encountered in the lounge were great. Everyone super friendly and helpful. We felt the food/beverage selections in the lounge were really good. If anyone has any questions, I'm happy to try and answer!
This is a view from our room.

Completely unhelpful other than to say expect it to cost about twice what you would pay at your local ABC store. At least that has been my experience when purchasing alcohol from the Disney resort stores.Hi everyone! I haven't delurked in a while but I had a question and was hoping that someone can help me out?
Regarding the adult beverages sold in BC Marketplace, I am curious as to the size (ml) of the Jose Cuervo tequila bottle and the cost. We are ordering beer and wine from GG but since we are staying in a 1BR villa, we plan on having more snacks and easy dinners in the room (which then leads to margaritas...)
Any info would be most appreciated! Thanks!
I did! I actually added a daybed request when I called in to book the Safari, it was great being able to book the safari, change a dining reservation and add room requests with one phone call. Or email them if you prefer, I have always heard back within same day - 48 hours.Thank you! I will be sure to still add Full Balcony as a preference.
Do many of you lovely club level people contact DSS directly with room preference requests?
I imagine the majority would be "close to lounge" and "full balcony"!
I saw somewhere that Beaches and Cream has a walk up window? Is this right? What do they offer at the window?
Great question- I believe that the last report I got was that you could get any sundae, except for the regular Kitchen Sink, and the Grilled Banana Bread with Peanut Butter from the Beaches & Cream take out window. The mini Kitchen Sink, in the keepsake container is available at the window.I think the shakes and stuff. At least we've only gotten shakes, sundaes and cones from the window.
We arrived home on Wednesday night from our wonderful five night stay at the BC. We went to SAB on our last day and then used the new shower facilities. These pictures are from the women's shower room. There is a large handicap style toilet in the room, two shower stalls, a baby changing shelf, a sink, a bench, towels and the same toiletries that the rooms have.
The BC room is a nicer room in general. The bathroom in the BC room has a double sink. The studio has a single sink. Many of the BC rooms have two queen beds and a daybed. The studio has a full balcony while only about 50% of the BC rooms have a full balcony. Most of the standard rooms at the BC are over the lobby and restaurant area and therefore closer to the main entrance than the BCV's. If the prices were the same and you didn't need the kitchenette than I would get the BC room instead of the BCV studio.For those who have stayed in both a standard guest room at the BC and a studio at BCV, which did you prefer and why? What did you not like? This is based on a revenue booking, not DVC.
We are returning in a few weeks, too, which is really nice.We returned from our BCV stay on May 20, 2017 and I have been trying to get settled back into the real world and prepare for our return in another couple of weeks. Tiring, but really looking forward to getting back so soon!
We had a tree view, too, and it was very private. No one could see into our room.Tess - that is a beautiful room. I like the combination of the carpet and the wood flooring. We had a similar view when we stayed at the BC, and I was disappointed at first, but then realized it was nice to have some privacy and we could sit on the balcony in our pj's early in the morning sipping our coffee without anyone seeing me without make up or combed hair
I saw people eating the mini kitchen sinks outside of Beaches and Cream. They had gotten them from the take out window. Those mini kitchen sinks cost $22.00. We never seemed to have a chance to eat there on this trip.Great question- I believe that the last report I got was that you could get any sundae, except for the Kitchen Sink, from the Beaches & Cream take out window.
Can anyone confirm that?
Thanks for that reminder. I am going to edit my post above.When I was there at the end of March, I asked the cast member working outside the door of Beaches & Cream. She said that you can get any dessert at the take-out window except the Grilled Banana Bread & Peanut Butter. (The take-out window has a sign listing just a few options, but from what this cast member said, you are not limited to those options.)
