It shouldn't be a problem unless it's during a busier time. We were there last October with F&W and Gartner Symposium going on at the same time. The resort was full. There was a sign at the gate about parking being limited, but I can't remember the wording on it. The lot was so full that we chose to valet park all week.

I'm surprised that YC being a 'convention' hotel does not have a restaurant that opens early - at least 7 am. I know the Marketplace starts serving food at 7 am, but that's IMHO, more like a snack shop, not a proper restaurant.

Sigh. I was really looking forward to Captain's Grill, but no way that I will be able to make it to MK by 7:50 am, if it opens at 7:30. (MK is now opening at 8 am on both days I have it on my schedule). It looks like we'll have to get room service. Good thing we are on the DxDP.

If it's not too loud, it may be ok. Do I just need to wait and see what it's like the first night before deciding if I can take an evening swim at SAB?

TIA!

I've never heard Fantasmic. If I did the volume was so low that I didn't notice.

Yes. We requested at check in. Ours did not come the first day so had to go back and ask again but arrived promptly after that.

No problem. Just tell them to give the name of the restaurant and that they are meeting you there. We've driven up to eat at B&C (can't ADR) and told the guard and were welcomed.

We have never been there when BC was completely full like previous poster but there used to be a 3 hour limit at resorts while dining. Rarely if ever enforced. Maybe during peak season at CR. Go. Enjoy the family. Enjoy the boat ride. Enjoy the BC!

I'm pretty sure you won't be able to hear Fantasmic noise at BC. It's not that close. If you do manage to hear it, I'm sure going inside would help. It's much harder to hear inside the A/C.

I have relatives that live in Orlando and back in 2009, they parked at BC and visited us for about an hour. They also did the same thing in 2011 - visited us and parked at AKL. In both of those occasions, they just explained they were visiting me, showed driver's license, etc., and were allowed to park. I would assume that if there is space they would let them in. I would also assume that parking would be for a limited time frame (i.e., under 3 hours). Cars from guests will have the parking pass on the windshield.

So we know about Family of the Day for SAB, but did you know that there is a Family of the Day at Captains Grille? We went down for breakfast this morning (no ADR) and were told we had been selected as Captains Grille Family of the Day! We sat in a section with no,other seated tables, got balloons as well as some other goodies, our picture taken (we got a hard copy and one emailed to us) for the scrapbook they keep, and a certificate. Who knew??? I'll post a couple pictures tomorrow. just a fun start to the day

As long as you are not there around the F&W Festival your guests should be fine just by giving the name of the restaurant. If you are there around the F&W then plan to have your guests ask to vallet as there is normally a sign that reads guest parking only.

Thanks! This will be DH's 1st time at the BC - he's only stayed at the WL before so I can't wait for him to experience the BC and SAB. This trip is a combined anniversary/birthday trip -best place in the world to spend it :-)

I am very behind and still trying to catch up, but I wanted to post a few things after reading some posts that touched me.

I'm just having a bit of trouble justifying the extra cost compared to a mod.

I guess I need to know if I spend the extra money, will I be disappointed? The reason why we can't be at home for christmas is because my DH passed away a little over a month ago and we just need to retreat and to begin to heal. Staying at the house for our first christmas without him will be torture.

People have mentioned staying at WL, but I can't - we stayed there as a family in 2010 and I would see DH everywhere.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. {{hugs}} I hope you find this trip healing.

Thank you for sharing your pictures, Pink Girl. They brought both smiles and tears to my eyes. What a beautiful family you have.

Met Teena for the first time yesterday afternoon, in the BC lobby! Super nice! Great finally getting a chance to say hi! Had a great chat, and some good tips. Hope I didn't hold you up too long!

So far, knock on wood, been a wonderful trip! Got a really good room in the Villas, crowds have been good, low wait times so far, foods been awesome! Epcot on Sunday was fun, did a Perry adventure with our son, that was fun. My wife got 2 pearls, one was a little small (6 3/4) and a huge one (8 1/2). She was super happy.

Typhoon lagoon yesterday. Perfect weather. Rain held off until close to 7 pm. Son and I spent a huge amount of time at the Typhoon Wave, he loved it! Those waves are so much fun to jump into and try to swim with.

Met another disboards person and her family on the bus to Typhoon lagoon ( didn't catch her name, darn it), had a very nice chat with them. Super nice, and their kids were so nice.

So far, one of our best trips! More later...
