That must mean that it is time for another trip so you can correct that!




Hey, everyone, I'm finally back at full attention! It has been a month and a half of pure frenzy and craziness for me! I survived Casino Night last night and I did not spend today curled up in in a ball of despair, so I guess that's a good thing. This was our first year with this event and turnout was lower than we hoped for to raise the funds we need for enrichment programs at my son's middle school, but everyone who DID go had a fantastic time, so I am happy about that.

I have been able to keep up with reading the thread, but I look forward to spending some time tomorrow morning really catching up on several days worth of pages, welcoming new faces and being jealous of everyone with upcoming trips.

Oh, and you may have noticed that we are inching towards the 250 page mark on the thread, so I will be monitoring the situation as we approach that milestone. I'll let you know when it is time to pack up and move. T and KD, hope you can find us when you are back from your wonderful cruise- I'll leave some breadcrumbs.

I was just thinking of you tonight and wondering how the casino night went. Nice to hear that it was great for those who were there. Too bad about the low turnout, but it is hard to get something new to catch on in the first year. I'm sure if it is done again next year, there will be a huge increase in attendance.

Can't believe we are nearing 250 already!

Thanks for you reply!!

Dee~ if you see this let me know and I'll shoot you an email to fill you in.
Is he looking to buy or rent? There are some great deals out there right now for buying. A six year old house in our development that was built for a little over $200,000 just sold for $130,000. The owner got transferred. And you can build brand new starting at $160,000 in our area ... that's a 3 bedroom/2 bath with normal size lot. We wanted to stay away from all the tourist stuff and traffic so that's why we're where we are ... plus we like the lakes, hills and orange orchards!

We stayed at the Beach Club three weeks ago, room 1548. It was a wonderful stay. We were really close to Epcot. There was an exit to the small pool right next to our room. It felt like Epcot was even closer than the bus stop.

The only negative for our entire stay was that the Wi-Fi in our room was pretty bad. We had a good signal according to the “bars” on our iPads and iPhones. The problem was the connection would only work a minute or two, and then sites or email just wouldn’t come up. The “bars” still looked good, but nothing functioned. I found that if I went into the iPad or iPhones settings and turned Wi-Fi off and then back on again it would start working for a few more minutes. The problem of course is that I had to do this repeatedly. It was more trouble than it was worth.

The odd part is we found the Wi-Fi in the parks to be excellent for the same devices. I really wasn’t expecting that!

Was it just our room? Was it our iOS devices? This might not be the best thread to post this in, but I work in IT. I’m curious. Has anyone else had this problem?

We had the same experience with our iPad in the room. Lots of turning the wireless on and off to get it to work.

We didn't have a US roaming package for our phones, so we didn't use them in the parks, so I cannot offer that comparison.

Now for anyone who is reading this and getting ready to panic about how the lack of wireless may ruin their vacation - remember you are at Disney, there is plenty to do without wireless!

After much discussion, we booked the BC/YC for our trip next Aug./Sept. Please give me your honest views of transportation at this resort. We are a bit worried as we have read some negative reviews on this--mostly the bus to MK, AK, and DTD. I am not as worried about the negative reviews of the bus to DTD as many resorts have that. I am more concerned with the bus service to the MK and AK. Please reassure us--thanks!!

The parks now have wifi . At last I can use my Lines App!

We had good wifi most of the time during our AKL stay in Aug.

hi all - new to this site - I'm staying at the beach club next july/august and have the dining plan.

great thread lost of good info.

now, there are 8 of us and I have a couple of questions if ok.

getting to disney prob around 7pmish on a sunday after a 9 hour flight. wondering what would be a good place to go on the first night to eat. probably best to stay in hotel or boardwalk perhaps? We have either a quick dining or table dining credit to use. nothing too fancy perhaps for first night as we may be tired?

also, and apologies in advance for this, but being English we are not used to giving 18% gratuities for restaraunts. I'm happy to give 10% as we normally do here in UK, but have noticed if 8 of us get table together they force us to pay 18$ tip on top - can we book 2 tables of 4? we have booked the holdiays 'seperately' i.e. under two family names and 2 credit cards.
