I booked for August 2020 could only get Pirate room which we didn't want, have now downgraded to standard 5th sleeper 768 less. That's a lot of beer even at WDW

I'd choose the BC in a heartbeat if our budget allowed! We've got 1 night there this year through renting DVC points and can't wait to try it out

It does look stunning, and the children will love Stormalong Bay. It was another 900 to change from CBR to a garden view room in BC for August 2020, so we did debate whether it was worth it. In the end, we decided that we can afford it, and wed love it, so why not?

Isn't Beach club a Deluxe resort? assuming it is then you willalso go from the QSDP to DDP so 900 sounds quite good

It is, but the 900 is allowing for the fact that we were paying 500 to upgrade the QSDP to the DDP and now we dont need to. It would have been 1400 difference if it wasnt for that. Not sure if wed have done it then - it feels like keeping the upgrade cost in the hundreds rather than the thousands makes it sound more reasonable! Were happy anyway

I know you're not supposed to go back and re-check but glad I downgraded when I did, no std rooms available for my dates, again, now.

I would downgrade to a preferred standard room as that way you're very close to OPR. We stayed in Martinique and loved being so close to the main pool, main building etc.

Then again, I don't like the look of the pirate rooms so I would also be downgrading for the nicer dcor!
