Going to BC in mid Dec and will be VERY happy if Wi-fi is improved. While staying in the room I definitely use Wi-fi for general use (search engines, menus, etc....) but use cell service for email, DME, etc...) Usually I take an ipad pro to WDW with movies downloaded to have easily available content while I'm there (at Christmas thats going to be Christmas songs, movies, etc....) . There are definitely times where Wifi is better (weekeday afternoon or middle of the night) but prime time they definitely need to work on the the Wi-fi.

Just got back from a wonderful stay at the Yacht Club... it was our first time there and we loved it. The room was fantastic, the cast members were awesome, we loved our water view, Stormalong Bay was perfect for afternoon breaks, and you can’t beat the location and access to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. We were in room 4091 (water view), which adjoins to 4089. It had a fold down couch and a tub/shower combo.

    I loved that view, but we were in a garden view room that was right across the gazebo from you. Its crazy how they classify rooms- one room down can be a different view sometimes and seem the same to me!

    Sorry pics are so fuzzy. I’m having to screenshot them because the DIS is trying to post them sideways, ugh! Time to get that glitch fixed...

    In case you missed the Disney News and Info post, there is an opening date for Beaches & Cream, January 19, 2020


    After being closed since August, the popular Beaches & Cream Soda Shop will reopen its doors to guests on January 19, 2020.
    Beaches & Cream is located between Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts adjacent to the sandy-bottom pool and is a long-time guest favorite spot to grab a bite to eat.
    While lunch and dinner are served at this location, it is most well-known for its ice cream sundaes.

    Hi Dee,
    Would you please add us to the BOG list for 10/17-10/24/2020? I booked our 2 BR Villa yesterday right at 11 months out. It will be myself, DH, adult DS and his girlfriend again.
    We are 19 days from our December trip and maximizing our AP's this year by booking 2 big trips within 12 months.
    So the best of both worlds.!! Holiday decorations and events in Dec and F & W in October.
    Thank You

    Just wanted to add a quick review before I forget.

    First time staying at the YC (we booked a water view/club level room) and in all honesty we didnt go in with high hopes. We had a previous stay at the Boardwalk and didn't care for it at all. Then I was reading about the similarly long hallways and dark floors/furniture and had more than a few temptations to cancel the split (Yacht/Poly) and just stay at the Poly - but I'm sooo glad we didnt cancel. The room is GORGEOUS. The only down side was the VERY bright pool lights coming into the room. I understand about pool safety and all that, but IMO they really need to separate "water view" and instead make it "pool view" and "lake view" as we had to keep our curtains closed at night because I'm just very very sensitive to bright light and was bummed I didn't get to enjoy evenings sitting on the balcony. (Yes, we could've moved but DD and DH both wanted to stay in the room and it was marathon weekend and the chances of moving were probably not going to be very good so we just left well enough alone.)

    Anyway, the CMs were so awesome. Second, I LOVED the snacks they put out and wish the other resorts would follow suit -- in particular the caramel dip with apples and taffy won me over - its the small things...lol. (I will say I was a bit disappointed that they removed the mickey ear sandwich with replaced it with the olaf bar though.) We rented Cabana #2 and while it was a bit on the cooler/cloudy side that day, we enjoyed taking the day off and relaxing pool side. The CM Travis working in the cabana area was really fabulous, kept checking in and asking if everything was ok, if we needed anything, etc.

    We're looking forward to returning but this time staying at the Beach Club over Christmas holiday for DD's 13th birthday. I admit I'm a bit worried about getting a room with pool lights shining in again, but I spoke to a CM and asked if they can kindly make recommendations as to a room that wont be AS bright and she seemed to make notes to our reservation in that regard. We'll see).
    :)

    Overall though, we would definitely go back to YC in future stays. DH and DD are tiring of the split stay route and we may decide when we do 2 trips a year, to do one full stay at YC and the other at Poly. :)

    I'm going to post this on the cake page too but here's my question/idea - I was thinking of booking one of the new pool cabanas at the beach club for a day for our stay in April. Do you think if I ordered a cake they would deliver it to the cabana? Any idea how to order it? It says they will deliver food to the cabana so I wonder if I ordered a cake they would deliver it? I'm taking my parents for their 50th anniversary and thought this could be a good surprise. Thanks!

    Since no one has answered, I will say this: my friend returned from a BC stay Nov 2nd. They were in a room on the 4th floor, directly over the port cochere. The first 2 nights, they heard loud hammering & banging going on above them throughout the night. Trips to the front desk got promises to make sure it stopped, but after 2 nights of very little sleep, they received some $ credits & no noise for several hours at night. Apparently the workers were told there was to be no one in the room under where they were working. But clearly there was some breakdown in room assignments & communication. From her experience, it takes several days for each room to be done. And at least as of Nov 2, work was still ongoing & going on around the clock.
    Thanks for that info. I haven't heard much about what has been going on there.

    ::yes::


    Guess who's back.... Soooooooooooo after switching so much I went back to YC water view and it is paid in full and all done with lol. We ended up switching our GF theme park view to a Boardwalk Water view. We wanted to stay at GF but we figured if we could stay in one general area it would be better. So now I get to stay where I want and my sister gets the Boardwalk like she has always wanted. Now just to wait 3 weeks. Going to two after hour events and a Christmas party. I can't wait.
    :welcome: back!

    I'll adjust the list.

    :goodvibes


    It’s been several years, but we’ll be back January 10-14, 2020 - at Beach Club (we’ve only done YC previously). I’m running my first marathon that weekend!

    My only concern is not getting a full balcony, but will put in a request and cross my fingers!!
    :welcome: back!

    I'll add you to the list.

    Hi all! Just back from our four nights at Yacht Club and wanted to share that our trip was just wonderful, as was our room and its view! We had room 4057 which from the outside is the room at the top with the circle window on the left. At first I thought the round cutout would deter from the view, but my kids thought it was just perfect for the theming and I grew to love it too. We woke up to beautiful sunrises and people watched when we were in the room. Super helpful too to watch the boat pull up from HS... we could book it down the secret entrance steps right down the hall and hop right on! Loved everything about the resort, still a favorite!
    Wow!!!

    Gorgeous pictures!

    Thank you for these and for the review of your room.

    If you haven't added this post to the YC Room Views thread, I'll get to that (eventually...)

    :thumbsup2

    Caught up on the thread, but I won't have time to make updates until later today.

    Have a great day, everyone!

While staying in the room I definitely use Wi-fi for general use (search engines, menus, etc....) but use cell service for email, DME, etc...)

    :welcome:

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

    Please let us know what your experience is with the Wi-fi after (or during) your trip.

    I leave for Disney Tuesday morning for my stay at the Yacht Club, and I was wondering how the crowds have been at the hotel and parks this week? Next Tuesday feels forever!

    Sorry if this has been answered historically on this thread but we are arriving for our first ever Beach Club stay from the UK on 2nd Jan for my 50th birthday and I’m getting a bit confused with room types, we have a GV room booked for 2 weeks but upon looking at room walkthroughs on YouTube there seems to be 2 different standard room sizes, one (which I assumed was the normal room) had 2 x queen beds and a sofa (new large TV set on the armoire), the other room had 2 x queen beds but no sofa (no adjoining room door either) and the older style smaller flatscreen tv in the wood surround higher armoire, this room looked considerably smaller. Both videos were from the same time approx 1 year ago.
    Many thanks in advance for any info.

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

    One of the features ("quirks") of the Beach Club are the different-sized rooms. Some have 2 Queen Beds and a daybed, some have only 2 Queen beds and a few have a King bed along with other assorted furniture pieces.

    Some rooms are connecting, some are not.

    Make sure that you specify which features of a room are important for your stay. Do you hope to have a sofa/daybed in your room? Request "Daybed, please"..

    Also be advised that only about 50% of rooms at the Beach Club have full balconies. If that is important to you, you should request that.

    For more info on rooms with daybeds, balconies and room pictures, check out Page 1 of this thread, particularly Post 8 Beach Club rooms and Post 13 Frequently Asked Questions.

    Thank you so much, can’t wait to get there!🤗🤗🤗

    BTW- since you have such a long stay, if you are assigned to a room that does not have the features you want at check-in- whatever those are, daybed, full balcony, location, etc. you may want to go to the front desk in person to inquire if or when a room that better suits your preferences will be available.
