Have ordered some gifts for my DD from American Girl to be at the BC when we arrive. I have given AG my reservation number and arrival date but can't see them quoted on my account invoice (we can't do it ourselves from the UK - you have to call their call centre to order with a UK billing address). Should I email the beach club to ensure they hold them for me (and if so who should I contact?) or am I just worrying too much (as usual )
Also spoke to a nice man yesterday to order a mini anniversary cake to be placed in our room mid-stay. Can't wait :

Does anyone know if a kindle will be delivered that way? I can't tell from looking at their website.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list. Have a fantastic trip.

I really don't know how to answer your question about the condition of the rooms at the BC and YC. I have seen reviews from both ends of the spectrum from guests who have just returned.

I'm honestly not sure that you will have a definitive answer until you stay there yourself.

Personally, the two Beach Club rooms I have stayed in were fine.

We are staying at Yacht Club - CL at the end of the month to celebrate the end of my mom's cancer treatments. We will be there 10/30-11/2 and I can't wait! We stayed at BC-CL last year and got hooked.
back, and congratulations to your mom for completing her treatment. What a great way to celebrate together!



I'll add you to the list.

Our usual advice is to wait to check in in person. Ask the person who is helping you if your assigned room has a balcony or not. If they say no, then ask if there is a room available now, or will be available soon, that has a full balcony.

So you're saying that, when we get desperate, the best thing to do is to mail ourselves down to the resort using the US postal service. If we FeEx ourselves we will just have to hoof it over to the resort from the convention center....AFTER we pay a ransom to the convention center employees to open the box.

I'm thinking that it might be easier to stick with the Magical Express. You get to sit in a padded, air conditioned seat AND they show movies on the way to the resort!

Our US friends might think we are crazy but with the exchange rate and
availability of certain things us Brits do a bit of shopping when we visit the US, BIG TIME.

As example our Nephew is after a Hollister hoodie for Christmas which in the UK is about $95, if we get it in Florida it will be about $40.
Thanks for this info

Hopefully it will come via USPS and there won't be any problems!

I've been off the DIS for a few months now saddened after leaving in June with no trip planned. However, we are now in the pre-planning phase and we have decided to stay at the BC for the first time.

This will be our 11th trip and our last four trips have been at the Poly. As much as we love the Poly we need a little change. The last time we tried doing this was when we switched from the CSR to CBR and were greatly disappointed. So excuse a slight feeling of hesitation....

I believe we will be staying at a Garden View and would like a full balcony. But that is all I have at this point. I will start my homework now and start reading through the thread but I'm already torn between being closer to EPCOT or the main lobby of the BC (DS13 would love to be close to the arcade and us the main pool). I know it's all requests, but here is to hoping.

By the way our trip looks like it will be June 6th through the 15th....10 DAYS!!!!

illuminations cruise

We will be at YC Dec 10 through 20 (already on list). I have an illuminations cruise leaving from the YC on Dec 10th at 8:30 for 9:30 illuminations. I have room for a few more. It is posted on the cruise thread, (but that is hard to find). If anyone is interested please PM me for the details. Sorry if this thread has to be moved...not sure

How fun! Normally I would say keep an eye out at the Yacht Club for the bearded guy in his Red Sox gear (my dad) and you'll know you have found me but the Sox have been so terrible this year, I think he will be leaving all his Sox gear behind. Ha!

Warning way but I thought I could count on my YC/BC friends for some help. My DH wanted to start an aquarium, so about 6 weeks ago we did. I got a Mickey Mouse fish that I named " Walt" which DH found funny. Today we got another Mickey Mouse fish and I need to name him.... Help!

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Love it!!!

I was going to say Lillian, but you said it was a male.

The obvious choices are:

Mickey
