Sorry if this was answered recently but I’ve been so busy I lost track of this thread! Do they still offer individual toiletries at BC? I made what I thought was my only Target run after work tonight for this coming weekend but they were out of my favorite mouthwash in the travel size. I’m checking in Friday standard/non CL and would rather not have to run out again before I fly down.

Just checked out last week and had individual toiletries including body lotion

We booked a Bounceback for the yacht club this upcoming April. I keep going back and forth on whether I should move over to the beach club side. We stayed at the bc last week and were happy. I know the pros of the yacht are all full balconies and 1st stop on the bus. I am just worried it will be too dark on that side of the resort. I did not like AKL for that very reason it felt dark. Do you find the rooms at the yc side to be dark. I do like the idea of no carpet. We have a 2 year old as well.

    Due to the YC renovation, they are the cleanest and brightest rooms of all the Epcot resorts. Nothing like no carpeting to make a room seem cleaner and bigger. They have lights all over the room. You won't be disappointed.

    Different strokes for different folks, but I don't consider the YC rooms dark at all. Pretty opposite in fact. Nice and bright/white/clean.

    When ours were at that age, balconies were pretty important to us if we had a choice, just for morning coffee, a place to be during naps, etc.

    We have also found we prefer the YC side of SAB with our kids, specifically the sandy pool, so that factors into our enjoyment of YC as well.

    I hate hate hate dark rooms, and I love the YC rooms. They do have the dark wood armoire, but to me that doesn’t make the room dark for whatever reason and is beautiful. However, keep in mind the AK rooms also didn’t bother me, so IDK. I’m a more beach type person in general, but for whatever reason I love the YC and my least favorite deluxe resort to stay at has been the BC. I would have totally expected the opposite prior to staying at both resorts.

    We returned from BCV on 10/18/19--great trip with absolutely splendid weather.

    We were assigned room 405 (once again, not even close to our requested 1st floor, near lobby, pool view requests--a running theme at BCV--since our first year there pre-renovations when we didn't care if we got the updated room, we have not been able to get the room of our dreams :goodvibes).
    Thanks so much for the detailed review of your trip and awesome pictures.

    When I get a chance, I'll copy your pictures and add them to the BCV Room Description thread.

    :thanks:

    Not the best picture, but here are the posted activities for Halloween at the YC/BC.

    Thanks for posting this. Nobody else provided this, so we really appreciate the info!

    🎃

    Making a solo long weekend trip over my birthday in January to check out Galaxies Edge and on a whim decided (since it's my birthday) to change my reservation from Pop Century to Yacht Club water view. I'm usually a value resort kind of guy but wanted to try something different this trip.
    :welcome:

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

    You will LOVE the proximity and ease of getting to Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.

    Thanks to everyone who responded to requests for info like the the November activities calendar, pool hours, suggestions for an under 3 year old and finger-scanning, opinions on the YC reputation for being dark and toiletries situation over the past few days.

    :thanks:

    :welcome: back!

    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list for April.

    I'll agree with the others who have replied. I do not like dark rooms or restaurants, either. I had absolutely no issues with the decor or brightness of the room during my recent YC stay. Enjoy!!!

    We completed our first stay at YC and LOVED it! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Housekeeping was great. The rooms were very clean and offered plenty of storage for my family of five. Our five suitcases and four backpacks could all be tucked away under the bed and in the armoire. We brought a fan which blocked out any potential noise from the hallway/connecting room. We appreciated the coziness of the resort. A short walk to the bus stop and not having to leave the building for a refill were perks during an unseasonably warm week. We’ve stayed at various other Disney hotels (including AKL - way too dark) and YC is now -#1 on our list.

    In May I used my fingerprint for our 3 year old, however I had to stay in the room with the baby one morning & my DH took our 3year old to AK, he told them the situation at turnstile and it was not an issue.

    So excited!! 30 days from today we will be checking into our beloved BCV. As DVC Owners we booked at exactly 11 months out, so it is a long countdown. We usually visit annually, in October, for F & W but we missed last year. This is our first Holiday visit and I am way beyond excited. I am bringing DS and his girlfriend. We have a 2 BR Villa.
    Now that DH and I are retired I spend part of everyday planning our travels.
    Can’t wait.
