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?

The obvious choices are:

Mickey

Disney

Roy
I like the name Mickey . We have a male cat named Mickey, but I guess that isn't surprising given my screen name .

Wow! That was a lot of reading! I have learned a few things along the way...

#1 - Hello Little Princess Lily!
#2 - Hello Teena!
#3 - I need to belong to some type of club....maybe closer to the trip.
#4 - ASK FOR A FULL BALCONY!
#5 - Let me know how my request looks - My DH is a smoker (not a fan - but to each their own) and likes to be close to a DSA. So close to lobby, full balcony, 1st floor. (No - he will not be smoking on the balcony since this is permitted and I would be upset if someone would be doing it near us. I'm allergic so he sticks to this rule).
#6 - I have learned with the complaints regarding the other resorts I have stayed at to #1 do my homework and #2 not to pay attention to every complaint regarding a resort. To each their own (again). I like the overall look, very different from the Poly. But we are looking for something different.

Let me know how my request looks and are there any first-timer tips? Looking forward to something new.

Oh...and before I forget...the tip about the Grand Marnier (Grey Goose Slushie) at France made me giggle. We were already working out a strategy before I saw this fantastic tip!!!!

We have two of those in our fish tank! They are "Mickey" and "Minnie"

Request looks great 1971. And welcome to the Y&BC thread. All first floor rooms have patios with chairs so that will work great. Sounds like you have really done your research and enjoy planning so jump in and enjoy the conversation.

I have a trip planned for the BC in February. There's a new thread out there about the worn out and dirty rooms at the BC: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3003368

I'm not too concerned about the mousekeeping--that's a hit & miss problem anywhere--but I'm concerned about how "worn" the rooms and halls will look. We don't make it to Disney every year, so we've saved and planned a lot for this trip. We will be disappointed in a room that doesn't feel like a deluxe.

For those that have stayed at either the BC or YC (or both!) in the past year, do you think one is in better shape than the other? In my place, would you switch your reservations to the YC or just keep them at the BC?
I have not stayed at the BC yet, that is not until next month. I did want to chime in on the worn dirty room thing though. Several years ago my family stayed at the Poly. Oh my goodness! The posts about that resort were horrendous, filthy outdated rooms, corridors piled up with dirty trays, mousekeepers that were terrible. I was a little worried that even if half of the posters were correct the stay would be less than stellar.

Nothing could have been further from teh reality of our experience. Our rooms were spotless. We were visited by the manager of the resort as well as the manager of the housekeeping staff that afternoon, both asking if our rooms were acceptable. I told them how much I appreciated the visit and that our rooms were perfectly fine. AS we chatted I told them how much my DGD loved the little animals that were in the rooms and thanked them both for those special little touches that make people happy. They told me to be prepared.................every night there were animals scattered all over the rooms, all interacting in some way with my DGD's "Marsha Fiona" and all of the new plush toys she was acquiring as each attraction sent us into a store.
I would suggest that you put aside the bad reviews, people tend to complain when things are not right so those posts generally will far exceed those that say the rooms were fine. Disney is very good about making things right if you run into an issue

I wouldn't worry about it in the slightest.

Thanks all for great advice on this. I'm sticking with the BC! I'm just so deep into planning right now and should probably just put all the Disney stuff aside until a few weeks before our trip. I should...but I probably won't! I guess I'll just spend the next 4 months rethinking and rearranging my ADRs!

When my kids become obsessed with a video game or movie and just want to talk about it, I tell them to stop using all their energy and brain power thinking about their video game and to "use their power for good". (Imagine if they focused that much on their school work?!?!) Why can't I take my own advice? Anyone else feel the same way?
