6 days for us too! I'm posting just so I can see my ticker. I am so excited. My mom is flying in and we're driving and we're meeting on Saturday afternoon. My mom has never been to WDW and she's basically coming to see the grandkids, but she's not like a Disney convert yet. Ha! I know that by the end of this trip she'll be converted. We're celebrating her 65 birthday, which is next Tuesday. I thought about booking someplace new, but BC was the first place we went as a family (my husband and I and the kids) and we had such a great time, I wanted to go with the 'true and tried' for this trip. I am going to start packing tomorrow, and I need to write the notes to the teachers and finish my list of noshes from F&W, based on the pics from DisneyFoodBlog.

Once I finally put my son in Sandcastle Club I couldn't stop! He begged to go there all the time. I can't believe I actually felt guilty about doing it in the beginning!! He's 12 now and will be too old. He'll probably still want to go back!!!

Our big family trip will be July 2014. I think I can actually start booking rooms sometime next spring.

Don't worry, Robyn. Still planning a short trip for next year's DisMeet!

Wenny and Vinotinto, I'm a member of the "6 day club" too! We're SO excited and can't wait to be back at BC!

Robyn and YCFan, I always think of the two of you when we plan our own "in room celebration," so had to report the plan for this trip. The Mickey Pumpkin ear hats, personalized Mickey Pumpkin cinch bags from Etsy (for MNSSHP trick-or-treating), glow sticks, Halloween Mickey Plush and a "credit" for a MNSSHP t-shirt. It's a small celebration, and I'll need to run to the room to set it up myself this time, but I'm very excited. Thanks again to both of you for all the inspiration!

This is exactly what I'm hoping will happen!

DH said "$11.50 an hour???" I'm pretty sure it will be the best $42 we spend next week. Hahaha!

can anyone tell me how long it takes to get to mk from bc on the bus? I really want to stay at bc, but we are planning on spending most of our time at mk... so I think it might be a better choice to stay at a mk resort. I really dont like taking the buses... but maybe its worth it?

Thanks!

The long bus ride to MK from the BC was one of the only things I didn't like about staying there. There always seemed to be at least a ten to fifteen minute wait. And the bus was usually shared with the YC. So if we made it to the MK in less than half an hour it was unusual.

When we stayed at the BC, the buses were always crowded and shared with the YC/BWI/Swan/Dolphin and although it got a little frustrating, we did have a great time at the BC and we are trying the YC next summer. I have read reports of the buses only servicing BC/YC and not being all that bad for getting to MK (or AK), so I think it's hit or miss as not everyone has the same experience when it comes to the buses at the Epcot resorts. With that said, the BC really is a great resort, so if you can handle the buses, I don't think you would regret staying there .

Hi Robyn! We had a great vacation and loved DL and DCA! My brother in law and his family live nearby DLR, have annual passes and go all the time. We stayed with them several days and also stayed at a hotel next to DCA for a couple of nights. Let me just say that they pack a lot of attractions in those two parks...and the parks are right next to each other! Disneyland is just wonderful...my one word to describe it is 'charming'. I was planning on writing a review with comparisons but still didn't get around to it...lol. Oh and the new Carsland addition to DCA is fantastic, it looks just like it does in the movie.

Just popping in to wish everyone a happy October!

I will be away from home for most of the next few days, so I won't be able to catch up with much on the thread until mid-week.

Still looking for an Activities Schedule for October, so if you happen to get your hands on one, please let me know. If you are staying CL in October and ask IPO to email a copy to you, I would love it if you could email it to

beachclubdee@yahoo.com

For everyone leaving for the world this week- Have a fantastic, magical time!

BTW- there are a few new installments of the Adventures of Flat Ben, including the pictures from cindydare's trip last week. Click on the link in my signature if you want to follow along.

Call dining reservations - 407-WDW-DINE. I had to keep saying "I don't know" to the system, since activity centers weren't one of the automated options. But I finally got to a very helpful non-automated CM who was able to book it.
