View Full Version : Happy Thanksgiving from BCV!

11-19-2011, 01:21 PM
Just arrived...villa (one-bedroom--requested ground floor and got it) is sparkly clean and was ready when I arrived...a CM met me as I got off ME (I was the only one on my bus getting off at the Beach Club), took me to check-in, went behind the counter & got my welcome folder, and pulled out the keys & villa number, stating my villa was ready...best check-in ever!

LOVE it here!

Heading out now to wander a bit...it's spitting rain...not really raining, just spitting a bit...that might keep me from wandering over to Epcot, but I'm hungry (and alone for the moment; DS doesn't arrive til later) so I may head that way despite the rain...on the other hand, maybe a Beaches 'n Cream BLT and FL Sunshine drink are in my immediate future! Mmmmm...yup, I think that's what I'm going to do...

Oh, by the way: am on Disney's new wifi...took a bit to figure out how to connect to it...but once I did, it's working smoothly (and fast)...so far so good!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving trip! I'm glad you got your requests! I enjoyed being escorted to the desk after I got off ME in October, too. My room wasn't ready then, but it was within the hour!:thumbsup2

Enjoy your time at BCV's! We too were escorted off Magical Express in October when we stayed at BLT. Made me feel so special. What a nice touch. Have a fantastic time!!

Happy Thanksgiving, neighbor :yay:! We arrived at BCV on Saturday, too, at about 8:00 PM by the time we got through the airport and off the ME. Check-in went smoothly except the music they play next to the front desk was so loud that I could not hear the soft-spoken CM at the desk so I had to keep asking her to repeat herself.

The only rain we saw/had was yesterday (Monday) afternoon at the resort and then later at AK. It was a super soft fluffy rain that looked like snow. We were on our way to Kali River Rapids anyway so barely noticed a bit of dampness.

We've done four parks in two days and today was reserved for Stormalong Bay. Might watch Illuminations from our 4th floor balcony if we can see it above the trees :love:.

Have a great, magical trip! Ours has been super so far!

It's been wonderful so far...AND, thanks to tomandrobin, I learned how to post pix! (now all I have to do is learn to take decent shots...these aren't great)...

We're going to Garden Grill (the Land/Epcot--one of our favorite spots) for T-giving dinner...headed over there in about an hour...

Had a wonderful meal at California Grill last night...toured Epcot FW (rode Soarin and Mission Space before lines got too long) yesterday morning; will do WS tonight, after dinner...this morning we toured BC/YC/BW--had a fun early lunch at Beaches 'n Cream (we were the first guests in and all the CMs gathered round clapping and shouting "yay, first guests of the day"--so cool...very fun!)...

Weather's perfect...we're loving life, and counting our blessings and saying our thank-you's...Happy Thanksgiving!

There's a new tree at Downtown Disney, next to the Toy Store...replacing the "toy tree"...it's pretty! Here's a pic...

This is a pretty tree--at downtown Disney, just before you get to Ragland Road...

thanks for posting some pictures of the trees. Nothing like Disney Christmas to get you in the mood to decorate your own home. That is my plan for the day. Keep the pic's coming :thumbsup2
