Wow, have a wonderful time! We are hoping to plan a disney cruise next year. I have already told my kids all about you, we will at BC Nov. 10-18th so I hope we can stop by to "meet" you in person that week.

So, we're off again on 11/24-12/1.

And Katesdad is going too so we are going to try and hook up as table mates at dinner.

Anybody else want to go?

OK not long now till our trip and a few questions have popped up!!

1. Lap swimming!! DD9 is a swimmer for our county team and has been told to try and keep up her training while we away. Does the quiet pool at the YC have a shallow end with steps like the BC (no use for tumble turns)

2. How much does the convention centre charge for receiving parcels? I'm planning on buying a few things for Christmas that we can't get in the UK (or are very expensive) and getting them delivered to the YC. Just concerned that if they can't be shipped USPS they will end up costing $$$$

Yes stairs and a shallow end right in front of the laundry area.

Neil is AWESOME! We've contacted guest services to compliment him on more than one occasion. He won over our boys with literally TONS of taffy. They love "taffy from Neil" and he was a big hit in our house long after our BC stays! Just talking to our 13-year-old about this post and now he's talking about how much he likes Neil.

Question about gifts for concierges on club level~ This will be our first time on club level, and I am wondering when would be the best time to give a little "Thank You" to the club level concierges. I have a taste of TN for them (as assortment of Little Debbie treats). Do you usually give them your tips or thanks you gifts at the beginning of your stay, somewhere in the middle, or not until you are leaving? Just trying to figure it all out...

Only valet, bellmen and housekeepers are allowed "tips" and if anybody else gets caught taking them, they can get fired. As far as "gifts", they can be given any time. Depending on who they are for, it might be best to give them at the beginning of the trip when you first see them since they could have off a few days or be going on vacation and you might not see them again.

Teena....It just keeps getting better and better doesn't it. Enjoy!

pixarmom Enjoy your trip. And I will be sending you an Alaskan questionare when you return for tips on our Disney Northern cruise! Kinda nervous but very excited to be stepping out of our WDW comfort zone in May.

sydangel68 THAT is what you pay the extra for. Neil (and his cohorts) are the best. Love it!


And to all our Y&BC family going down in the immediate future (and there is a big bunch of you) WooHoo! Drop us a line and let us know how everything is going.
