Thanks Kerrio. That sounds great! Thanks for your other posts, too. Fortunately, we won't be pushing a stroller around this time -- Been there, done that!

We did the same split last March - BWI/CL then WL/CL. I think your FF question was also answered on the WL thread

I booked a standard room. DH will want a quiet room and I thought a standard room might be more quiet than a Boardwalk or water/pool view. Did I guess right?

Also, I did not make any special requests when I booked and I don't know what options will appear when on-line check in becomes available. Can anyone help me out there? I read through a lot of this thread -- particularly the beginning, but I did not get through every single page.

Thanks for any help!
The POP thread has the hostess with the mostess, Janet B. I'm sure she misses not having you over there, but we're glad to have you over on the Epcot side of the World. You can also add "quiet location" to your reservation so that the room assignor can try to put you there.

Thanks for posting that. I saw on the DVC board that someone called member services and was told that they could use SAB and that a golf cart would transport them (or of course you can still take the boat or walk).

Yes, Janet B is fantabulous. I met her when we were both at Pop in August. She is terrific and is like the Energizer bunny. I'll still pop over to her Pop thread, but I need the knowledge from your BWI thread now. Thank you for the hint on "quiet location." I'll ask for that. Do you happen to know what requests are available to make during on-line check in?

I've only done OCI for BWI CL and I believe the only view request you could mark was for a Boardwalk View. OCI is always very limiting and only has pre-set and very limited request choices. It's not a problem to do OCI, but just make sure that all of your requests have been placed in your reservation by calling the WDTC at least 5 days prior to arrival so that the room assignor will see them. If you're staying CL, just email or call the IPO which is actually located at the YC/BC.

If you POP on over to the POP thread, say howdy to my fav girl, Janet for me!

I wish I were staying CL, but that is not in the cards! I'll call with my quiet request.

I will say hey to Janet for you. Thanks again. I'll continue watching this thread for all the great info! Nice work.

Beginning this week, radio-frequency (RF) technology is bringing two significant changes to Walt Disney World:

-- Starting December 11, new payment devices that give you the ability to "touch to pay" using RF-enabled Key to the World cards (or to swipe credit cards) will be available at the following locations: Epcot, Art of Animation Resort, BoardWalk Resort, Contemporary Resort, Polynesian Resort and the Yacht & Beach Resort (except for laundry, valet and arcade locations in resorts). At this time, only guests staying at the aforementioned Walt Disney World Resort hotels can use "touch to pay," which is simply holding your card to the device's touch point to make payment. These devices also allow entry of a PIN (Personal Identification Number) via a PIN pad for "touch to pay" transactions. If you're staying at one of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels listed above, you will have the opportunity to set up a PIN during check-in. You also will have the opportunity to set up a PIN through the Online Check-In Service. A PIN is required for purchases of $50 or more (except for locations with a tip line; a PIN is required for all purchases at these locations). Guests with RF-enabled Key to the World cards will be able to make purchases using this method wherever a new payment device is available.

-- As of December 12, main entrance turnstiles at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom are being converted to allow entry with RF-enabled Key to the World cards. This enhancement will give resort guests the ability to "touch to enter" the park -- that is, a person can simply hold the card to the new turnstile touch point, place a finger on the pad and enter the theme park. The turnstiles will eventually be able to accommodate RF-enabled ticket media as well.

It's almost worth planning a trip to the world to take advantage of it! :-)

Dreadful news. We were there two years ago Spring Break and the pool opened re-opened right around this time. The water was so cold. We spent most of the time at the quiet pool.
