I heard it was about 15 dollars. We are planning on taking a cab as well for our early morning reservations.

I requested bldg 21 in Martinique since all the preferred bldgs are sold out for the free dining.

We'll be there 9/19-26/10! Anyone else?

Anyone eat at Shutters? I have an adr there...but there aren't too many reviews on dis for some reason. (that I can find, anyway)
hi avonlady!!! good to see you here!! i too went through the same thing with por/rq/cbr. we will be at cbr sept 6-14 so i will just miss you.

I had not paid that high, but I don't travel to every resort. Maybe it will be 15 to some. I just never paid that much.

Can't wait. We're going week before Easter. Hopefully the pool will hold a large capacity. Last time we went during Easter break we stayed at POFQ and there was never any chairs available around the pool.

We go in the summer and have always been able to find at least 1 chair. So, I think you will be ok then.

I know there are things like the disney florist $$ but I wanted to know if you call the hotel and ask for a "card signed by mickey" would they do it? or is that something I would have to do with a package. Hard to surprise her and I'd like that to be in the room when we get there and then I'd put whatever I get her there myself.

TIA

6 more days til we get to CBR
HI! I've done this before--- when I checked in, I told the front desk about the special occation we were celebrating, and asked if I could have a card signed by Mickey... It was wonderful! Even personalized! and they had balloons waiting in the room as well.. plus.. it was FREE! Enjoy! and congrats to you and your daughter!

Just keep in mind it all depends on how busy the resort is. They could say yes and then not have the runner to do it. If you really want to do something arrange and pay for it. That way if it doesn't happen you can complain.

Morning,

Thanks for responding, I actually have some stuff for her that I have to put in the room, I was just curious if it was at least possible to have that in the room in advance. No biggie tho, I'll ask but be prepared in case it can't be done, just need to figure out how to put her goodie bag in the room without her seeing.

Can't believe after all this planning and waiting I'll be there on thursday

How early of a breakfast. My wife and kids had breakfast last year at Kona, 7ish, and a bus driver took them from Pop and dropped them off at Poly. All my wife asked, "What was the quickest way to Poly." he driver said hope in. They were like an hour early for there reservation, walked the grounds for a bit and then seated early.

We just booked our CBR ressie for December 20-25. After reading all the reviews I'm torn when it comes to the bus issue. We will have our car, but we usually leave it parked and take the buses. Should we plan to use our car?
