It's neat, all these famous people here))))) Wednesday, look for me on Live at MK, I'm going to see if I can be around show as its filming! I'll wave a lot in background...I know keep wishing:0

I did receive my request of large balcony, I did not check in online. It was extremely crowded today, CL very crowded but plenty of employees to go around. Irv very nice..
Very disappointed in one person with Bell Services, this person did a poor job retrieving our luggage from car--we actually had to get someone to come to the car, took about ten minutes for that, then he stood there while we did most the work, it was bizarre((. On the other hand the bell service gentleman who actually brought our luggage to the room was great, exceptional really!

The internet wanes heavily, limited access constantly, annoying....but POR did exactly same thing last Sept....SAB was crowded considering the high was 68*, tomorrow will be warmer. Marketplace has a nice array of souvenirs.

Having a nice time, noticed normal wear & tear of carpets & walls. I haven't heard to much noise through walls or I'm just lucky with quiet neighbors & it's full capacity Vilma said. Have a great night!
Glad you are enjoying the BC!!! Sorry I didn't get to chat with you.

As far as Bell Services ... FYI ... the people who work outside unloading the cars, etc. are Valet, not Bell Services. The people that deliver the luggage to you or pick it up in your room are Bell Services. They are two different entities and have different costumes. Valet is outsourced. Bell Services CMs are employed by Disney, the Valet CMs are not. They work for a different company. Not that that's an excuse for the poor service you got unloading your car!! Very sorry about that.

Does anyone know how likely it is that club level will be sold out for the first 2 wks July? Friends coming to stay then but they are hoping it is possible to pay for an upgrade on check-in (depending on whether husband gets expected work related bonus-hence they are booked std/gv room at the moment). I said I thought it would likely be booked out but they could always ask. Hoping that I've not mislead them but if I'm wrong at least I can tell them sooner rather than later

Thanks Sue... DD and I have done the FW Segway... we liked it, but she wouldn't want to do that one again.. her feet hurt when we finished and you know she is a I have a feeling the Epcot tour will be canceled, so they will just figure out something else to do that day

Hello,
Yes, I know the difference normally in Valet & Bell Services - but all the valets looked to be assisting other guests - via the different costume--super congested in Porte-cochère, I asked a person who happened to walk by after waiting about 10 minutes, standing there. This guy was physically brought out of building by another CM gentleman--to help unload, he didn't seem to happy about it either & his costume looked the exact same to me as the Bell Services. But Thx for the schooling TeenaS)
Even so, if Valet was the culprit, being the first person that a guest comes in contact with besides the guard---it's still your first impression of BCR. Have a nice day)))

You are definitely right ... first impression is huge and it's something we are always working on!! I'm sorry your first impression wasn't great.

We stayed at the Yacht Club back in 2011. We are staying there again this upcoming oct 13 because I couldnt get a room at the beach club. I had a quick couple of ? so I know what room request I should put on my reservation.

1. Are there rooms on the first floor of the yacht club? We booked a garden view room not sure if that matters not really concerned with our view we have been to disney enough times.

2. I know there is a staircase going to somewhere from the lobby would that staircase lead you to rooms on the second floor?

thanks for your help. I am only asking these questions because I would like to avoid using the elevator at the yacht club if at all possible. last time it gave me the creeps it seemed so run down while we had zero issues using the elevator we were calling it the tower of terror and I much rather not use it if i dont have to. thanks!

1. Yes, there are 1st floor Yacht Club rooms.

2. Yes, there's a nice big fancy staircase leading up from the lobby to the 2nd floor. When I stayed at the YC a few years, we ended up with a room on the 2nd floor and loved being able to walk up the staircase. I'm not a big fan of elevators.

You could probably put in a request for "1st or 2nd floor, close to lobby".
