I appreciate the additional info!

No problem with the photos. Glad you were distracted from enjoying your child-free trip!

As it turns out, someone just posted the view from 2149 on the YC View thread, so that will give people a pretty good idea of what your view was.

:goodvibes
I was able to email the few my husband took!

Although guests with dogs can be placed anywhere in the resort, I think the wing you were in is specifically assigned to pet owners when possible since it is first floor and close to a dog relief area.
Yes, and the Quiet Pool rooms at the YC are designated for guests with dogs. The pet relief area is the pathway around the pool.
That reminds me of another annoying tidbit about the loud local and her dog last week...she was using the lawn in front of the wedding gazebo as her dog relief area. And she wasn’t the only one. She did seem to be picking up after it, but still. Ick. Am I wrong that the dog relief area is on the other side of the building by the quiet pool, and not by the gazebo?

I believe I am caught up here.

Please check the Be Our Guest list to make sure I have your information listed correctly.

Post 15: Be Our Guest List

We (as in DH) decided to stay at WL in December, so please take us off the list for then. However, he’s bribing me with a trip end of January, and once the AP discounts are released YC will probably be the winner for that trip. ;-)

    You are correct. YC guests are informed where the pet relief area is.

    Story from DVCStore.com, How will the skyliner affect the Beach Club and Boardwalk Villas:


    🚡
    I am hopeful the security gets better and is not negatively impacted by the Skyliner. Nothing like racing a friendship boat before it docks.

    I selfishly don't want the foot traffic around the resort areas to increase. I like how quiet and peaceful these lobbies are in comparison to MK resorts. I also like strolling out of the IG exit when everyone is flooding the front. Only time will tell!

    I'm sure this has already been talked about but I saw on the stories of an instagrammer I follow that there are refurbishments being done in the YC lobby. Does anyone know what they're doing?

    I "heard" that the floors are being refinished, but I cannot vouch for the info.

    Just found this on the Disney Food Blog:
    Making our way to Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, the resort’s lobby is undergoing refurbishment. Based on what we heard and saw, it seems like they are replacing or resurfacing the hardwood floors.
    Due to the construction work, the Bell Services desk is serving as the temporary Registration, Concierge, and Front Desk location.
    Black construction drapes start immediately when you walk in from outside and they go all the way up to the ceiling of the second floor.
    Since the lobby is currently under refurbishment, Yacht Club Resort’s globe has been temporarily moved to the area outside The Market at Ale & Compass.

    Now that you mention that I feel like I recall reading that somewhere, probably here! Thanks! I did see on this story that they had a large section blocked off with chandeliers wrapped. So that would definitely make sense that they were refinishing the floors!

    We checked out 2 days ago-- they were painting the trim in the lobby from the yellowish beige ( the picture w.the boat) to white

    I agree it not great but, to be fair, if you’re walking your dog controlling where it goes to the toilet is pretty hard. Mine drop and squat anywhere 😂🤦‍♀️(I don’t bring them on vacation tho!). At least she was clearing it up 😀

    Any ideas for space saving items I should bring for the BCV studio? As I mentioned prior, 5 of us plus a toddler in a crib for 3 weeks so we need to do a bit more planning to make the room more comfortable.

    I’ll definitely be packing enough hangers!
    I was thinking of also bringing a hanging
    shoe organizer with clear pockets for toothbrushes, deodorant etc so we can keep the bathroom countertop clean.
    I was also considering an inflatable toddler bed in lieu of the crib.
    We will ask housekeeping to remove the chairs, coffee table and anything in the closet that we don’t need.

    People have mentioned limited to no drawer space. Would small kids clothing fit in the drawers? Underwear?! Socks? Anything? haha.

    We will keep our kiddos strollers on the balcony as we will be bringing ours from home.

    Any other ideas?!

    I think you might need to have the balcony furniture removed if you want to keep strollers out there. There would not have been room on the balcony I had last month. You might want to post the measurements of your strollers so someone who is there can tell you if they will fit.

    The drawers in my studio were rough, like they needed to be sanded. I don’t know if that is typical. Socks, underwear might fit but might get snagged if not in ziploc bags.

    I think you can request hangers from housekeeping. If anyone has done that when booked in studio on points maybe they can chime in. You don’t want too many hangers or they will end up in your motor vehicle with your suitcases.

    If you are going to be doing laundry you might want to bring a fabric laundry bag (you wash it with the dirty clothes). Although a pillowcase might work. If your kid would sleep in an inflatible bed then do that.

    I use a hanging sweater organizer to store clothing in the closet. I keep the ironing board up against the wall behind the entrance door for extra counter space and a 'drop spot' with a container to hold magic bands, sunglasses, etc., when coming in the door. Backpacks are stored on the floor under the ironing board. I empty suitcases and use one for dirty laundry so I can just wheel it to the laundry room.

    I used two of these in a studio at Polynesian because the drawer space was under the bed and I don’t bend well. It worked perfectly for the three of us.

    Dee Did A Dumb!

    Yesterday I was trying to catch up and post new info on Page 1 and on the Room View threads- I take notes about info to add as I am reading through and then go back when I have time and refurbish the posts.

    As you can imagine, I have a Beach Club/Yacht Club/BCV file with thousands of photos, my own and from other guests throughout the years, pretty (obsessively) organized in folders and subfolders.

    Yesterday, I accidentally deleted my archive of "Club Level" photos. About 400 pictures.

    I do have my photos backed up, but I don't know how to retrieve just the set that I need. I'll ask my techie husband over the weekend if I can do that. It literally takes days to restore all my photos when I need to upgrade to a new computer, so I am not going to go that route.

    The good news- I still have all of my own pictures from past CL stays, and when (if) I have time, I can copy off the pictures that are currently in the CL post on Page 1 and I know there is a treasure-trove of photos (more recent than the ones I had) over on the CL FAQ forum.

    I may put out requests for specific photos in the near future, so stay tuned!

    Nothing like getting an unexpected "fresh start"

    :headache:
    GREAT NEWS!

    I may have done a dumb earlier this week, but I sure did a super smart 33 years ago when I married Mark!!!

    He was able to show me how to easily restore the folder (400 photos) I had deleted since we have them backed up on Carbonite. Took about a minute!

    He also spent the afternoon working on my dad's computer issues.

    We used 3 collapsible containers for under the bathroom sink so the counter stayed clean.
    We had a total of 5 large and 1 medium size hard sided suitcase and one carryon. We were able to put all but one in the closet. My daughter and I put our clothes in the drawers, my husband kept his in his suitcase. We use packing cubes so it made it easier. There was a large space near the door that you can probably store something, we kept our shoes there ( we all had multiple pairs). We don’t have as many people as your party but we had a lot of luggage ( we were in FL for 19 days).

    Edit ! I found my own answer LOL. They are offering two items as snack credits.

    Good morning, now that beaches and cream is in a temporary location and a walk up only. Does anybody know if any of their ice cream qualifies as a snack credit on the dining plan? Thank you
