Based on what has been said by Teena and others, I've got to think that was a GV given the large tree blocking the view. It seems that you can get a GV and still see water in the distance, off to the side, or through the trees. Don't tell DISNEY!!! They may start a fourth catagory and charge us more! Of course there are those trees that have those certain male stars lurking in them. But I think those are a separate room catagory all unto themselves.

Teena is back home from her cruise. She and Bob had a great time! I will post the pictures she sent to me sometime today. Teena just texted me to let me know that when she got home, her internet connection was down.

Hopefully she will back online soon!

Here's the wierd thing - YC GV can include views of the quiet pool, BC GV does not. Now that may have changed lately but for years it was the strangest thing pool view (quiet pool) YC but not BC quiet pool views counted as GV!

We are only 14 days out now! So of course I have questions swimming around in my head. I'm hoping some of you have done bibbidi bobbidi boutique and can answer this question...do we need to bring a comb? I have it written in my notes with a "?" so I don't know if I will need to bring one with me for daughter's appointment..does anyone know? sorry it's off topic but this is the most knowledge group of people around

We are home from BC. We flew home on Thursday night and I spent most of yesterday trying to recover.

I am in the process of downloading pics to photobucket, so I can send Dee some more Flat Ben pics, and post a couple on here.

We had a really good time and we love BC just as much as before! I'll post more later today or tomorrow.

Cindy

We did BBB two years ago and I think that I did take a comb with me, but I can't remember if the fairy godmother in training used mine or not.

Thanks Katesdad and Robyn. So funny about the different categories at BC and YC. Whatever the category, I loved that room!

Welcome Home, Cindy!! Looking forward to hearing more about your trip! And if you have any advice regarding our upcoming travels with Flat Ben, please let me know!

I did take DD's ( 6 at the time) hairbrush as she has thick hair and a Mason Pearson is the only brush that will go through her hair without pain. They also used a tail comb on her which we were given away with us.

DD calls BBB "the place that gives you a sore head" think the Fairy Godmother tied her hair too tight, she looked like she had had a face lift
We had to adjust it after she left. She was too scared to tell it hurt in the salon.

Our vacation has ended Sitting in the airport waiting for our flight.

We were picked to be Family of the Day at the BC this morning !!!!! They asked us where we wanted to go and drove us there, what a wonderful surprise that was : . We are now BC fans! Loved SAB and being able to walk to Epcot & HSThey only issue we had was our room smelled very musty, I called as soon as we checked in. They came and changed the air filter and cleaned off some mold that was on the vent but it didn't really help. The maintenance man told us that it was really hard to avoid mold because of the Florida climate. That was the only issue :-)

Hope everyone with upcoming trips have a great time !
