We booked a BC CL GV. I have read there are only 8-10. Would they be the rooms facing the walkway to the main entrance on the left and right wing? I am trying to figure out where our room will most likely be. Will we have a view of the lagoon if we turn our head just not facing the lagoon?

Does anyone have pictures from YC CL GV room? I'm trying to see what kind of view I would have. Where are these rooms located, by the back entrance? Can you see Epcot?

Just booked the Beach Club from 8/24-9/1. Can't wait to stay here. Have been dreaming of staying here for years and finally doing it this year.

Is the beach club a good resort ? Are there any cool things to check out?

The pool it shares with the Yacht Club is great. You can walk over to the Boardwalk, which is a nice area. And you can also walk over to Ecpot. To me, that's one of the best aspects of staying there.

I completely agree! Stormalong Bay is amazing. The walk or boat ride to Epcot is great and it's SO much easier to enter Epcot through the International Gateway!! We also LOVE the dining options in the area. Cape May is a favorite of ours!!

Here are some pics from our trip last May 2012.

This is a lagoon view king bed room.


Here is another one, complete with towel Mickey on the bed.


This is the view out one of our windows.


And the view from one of the other windows.


Finally, another view of the lagoon.

We had a wonderful time here and can't wait to return!

From what I have read you will enjoy either place and both get rave reviews. We will probably never stay at YC, because now we have stayed at BC and just love that! We love the light and airy decor of the BC, while the photos of YC rooms are just a little more classic. Here are some things to consider, from what I've read, heard and learned (but what do I know, I've never stayed at YC).

Pros for YC-
1.Better chance of getting a full balcony as almost all or all rooms have them. The BC has several rooms with juliet style balcony only (you can stand on it, but there is not room to sit).
2.A little quieter in the halls/common sitting areas (this is what I have heard)
3.Closer walk to HS (if you plan to walk; if taking the motor boats, a slight bit closer to those)

Pros for BC-
1.Closer walking distance to Epcot (ok it is like 3 minutes closer, but to some people that makes a difference).
2.Closer to the quick service Beach Club Marketplace.
3.Closer to Cape May Cafe (my fav!).
4.The smell in the lobby!

I have some friends who stay at the YC every time and wouldn't dream of staying at BC, just like we wouldn't dream of staying at YC (unless BC was full and then we definitely would!). I think you will be quite pleased with either choice. They are basically like the same hotel anyway. I have some more pics from our trip in 2011. I will post those here when I have time. That way you can see a couple different BC rooms and views. Have a wonderful trip to YC/BC!
