There was one in my 2 BR Presidential; it was under the sink, in a bag.

Not the strongest hair dryer I've ever used, but more than adequate.

There were two in our two bedroom deluxe under the sinks. As said above not the strongest, but worked just fine.

New to this BC questions

I have not read every thread but this appears to be a group of resort hotels? Who do I contact for pricing and availability? What should I expect to pay for a 4 bedroom and how many people can occupy it. We are 6 adults and 4 children. What is the minimum length of stay?

I see the term tower, does that refer to a hotel? Which is the best to ask for?

1 bedromm = 4 persons max (1 king bed sleeps 2, 1 pull out bed sleeps 2)

2 bedroom = 8 persons (1 king bed sleeps 2, 1 pull out bed sleeps 2, 1 quean bed sleeps 2, 1 quean bed sleeps 2)

So you will need a 3 bedroom or bigger to sleep your group.

the first post does a good job answering your questions with a lot of other information as well. This is a long running thread but I think you can get most of the info in the first post.

6 adults means three bedroom deluxe ( with two people sleeping on the pull out) or 4 bedroom presidential. The three bedroom presidential exists but it does not have the pull out couch and the max occupancy is 8.

Returned from Bonnet Creek after an 8 night stay. It met my expectations as usual and then some. The staff were excellent this trip. The room was clean.

We requested a fireworks view and boy did we get one. Unit 735 building 2 - We had an awesome view of the EPCOT ball, could see Holiwood Studio Ears in the distance. We could not see the castle but we did have an awesome view of the fireworks. SO we watched fireworks over at Magic Kingdom and also at EPCOT. It was awesome.

The kids enjoyed several of the pools and the lazy rivers. They had no complaints about either.

On Thanksgiving I woke up and could barely walk so called the front desk to ask about renting a scooter. They put me through to K&M Rentals who has scooters onsite. I was able to retrieve a scooter immediately for a very reasonable price.

So I am in the club of I sooo Love Bonnet Creek!!!!

We check in on 12/28 and I would love to make it to MK to see the castle lit (at 6;15 ish). If they don't let us check in until 4:00, will we be able to make it? We will have our own car to drive.

This is very doable. You are within minutes of the Parks. Check in and head over to MK.

The little store at Bonnet Creek is very small and fairly expensive. They have some sundry items but not a lot. Not sure exactly what all they carry but it is nothing like a food market. They carry general items you might forgert such as toothpaste and have souvenir items.

I remember it being very small, it could NOT have replaced our grocery store run to Wal-mart. They did have some small stuff, like mini boxes of cereal (single serving) and chips - but it was quite small.

There are two grocery delivery services to choose from. One is Garden Grocer, the other is WeGoShop.

I've never used either, but there has been a lot of discussion on the DVC boards about them.

Garden Grocer has a set list of items you can purchase. I assume the items are marked up slightly from what they are paying, and there is also a small service charge.

WeGoShop will go to any store you want, including Super Walmart, Costco, etc, and buy whatever brands, sizes, etc you want. They bring you the receipts from the stores and add a small service charge.

Both companies can leave groceries at resorts without you being there, and most resorts can store the groceries in refrigerated areas, if necessary. (I'm pretty sure WBC will)

All of the feedback I've seen in the last 3-4 years on both companies has been low-cost, good-service performance.

As others have stated, the selection of food items at WBC is VERY limited.

We've used Garden Grocer on pretty much every trip. WBC stored our frozen stuff in a freezer and our fridged stuff in a fridge, and bell services brought it directly to our room. I like GG just because I can order from their website and know what I'm getting, as opposed to WeGoShop where you have to make a list and send it to them with sizes and stores. GG is just a little easier for us.
