3. Can you get a beer anytime of day? This is actually my dh's question, and was the first thing out of his mouth when I told him I upgraded.:rolleyes

4. If being next to the lobby is not possible. What should I request?

Thanks
Sorry, Padawans - I just posted an answer for BC - forgot you're at YC! So I returned to delete/edit my not-so-relevant post. Hopefully someone else can help!

Thanks so much-I read this board often but dont always post-you really cheered me up
Thank you for your kind words. Obviously you're a woman who suffers from 'cats' as well. The only advice I can give you is to keep lots of that Vodka on hand.

I'll mostly still post as Natebenma, but I may use this when I have to start the new thread in a couple of months.

Dee
So is this new persona a blond? Perhaps a little "cougarish"? I picture her with a cigarette hanging out of the corner of her mouth and a really expensive Harvey's Bristol Cream habit. The kids are grown and after the 3rd husband she gave up on marriage. Her hobbies are bingo, reality TV and 'Happy hour' at the corner bar.

So am I close??

The only thing he wasn't sure about was getting arcade cards. Strange - I thought that would be easy??? Since they can do that, I decided to pick out most stuff on the Disney store website.

And on to the stuff you are all interested in - I also asked about putting a couple of BC t-shirts in the packages, and he said to just give him the sizes we want! So, sounds like they are there or almost there to me.
They shouldn't have any problem getting the arcade cards. I've had them put them in the baskets the last three years!

What would you do...

Ok I'm waffling... I am booked for 4 nights at AKL Kadani (wait listed CL Jambo). I have never stayed at Kadani this will be the first, I have stayed at Jambo lots of times. This trip is a NO parks trip (except for the day I'll spend at Epcot for the International Flower show for photos). Today I started to think hmmm (yes MM dangerous for me to think too!) about maybe BCV's.. so I called and they have the first 2 nights available...which then led me to think about SSR or OKW. So what would you do would you stick with the 4 nights at AKV or 2 nights BCV's 2 nights at AKV or 4 nights at SSR or OKW??? I'm really torn on what to do so as of now I'm staying where I am!

HELP!!! ADVICE!!!OPINIONS!!! Probably the wrong bunch of people to ask given the name of this thread... but I know several people here have done the split stay.. I actually just did a 3 way split stay so anyway advice please!!

Nanette, I think a 2AKV / 2 BCV split is a great idea! The AKL pools are wonderful and you could schedule Jiko and Sanaa ADRs if you like them. Then move over to BCV and have easy access to Epcot and the Epcot resort area (another great pool and more great restaurants!) We've done non-park stays at both AKL and BC and think they're both perfect for that purpose. But I know we would get antsy in one resort during a 4-night non-park stay. If you think you might be the same, I think the 2/2 split is ideal. Good luck with your decision!

So, I've been entering the OMDD contest and while on a phone call today I got a call from a LD area code. I immediatly went to check out the area code since they didn't leave a message and I was paranoid I missed my phone call making my Disney Dreams come true.

Not a Florida number. It's 201. New Jersey.

Marlton Mom are you crank calling me........

Excuse my ignorance but what is a HH bucket?

Sorry, I'm *%^ or ^)( area codes. I do love a good prank call how ever and I have been known to buy lottery tickets with yesterdays winning number on them and try to pass them off as winners to my husband. He's totally caught on to me so he no longer makes an entertaining victim....

An HH bucket stands for "heavy on the Harveys" which is what Beach Club Dee tells the Bartender when she asks for a refill in her "Hurricane Hannah's Kids meal green plastic beach bucket"

Thanks Pixarmom for your opinion and advice!! I would probably be going to Epcot on Thursday or Friday and I would be alone on those two days until about 8:30 Friday evening when DD's plane lands (if I buy her a ticket ). Saturday me/we would be driving to Tampa for a Yankee Spring Training Game Sunday would be a hang around the pool day until I take DD to the airport for a late flight home to Dallas So I don't know I guess it doesn't really matter because I will have a car the entire trip so getting around becomes easier. Anyway IF I make this move I will call first thing in the morning and make the move for the first 2 days.

Keep the opinions and advice coming!!

Nah! I fancy myself a redhead. Lose the cigarette, gain a motorcycle and lots of leather. Tequila would be the drink of choice. I'm thinking common law significant other who shares my passion for karaoke.

We would be all over the AKL / BC split. Love them both. I'm thinking Boma and Jiko, then as piaxarmom says, an Epcot/Boardwalk smorgasbord. All this and your Yankee's too. Sounds great to me!
