Dee - First I wanted to say that the reason you are the "Keeper of the Thread" is because no one could do the job that you do - it is fantastic!!!!

Second - we have changed once again!!!! Frontier Airlines just started flying out of our local airport and are offering really good introductory fares. Unfortunately (or fortunately in our case) they only fly certain days of the week.

We are now booked June 29-July 5 Poly GV (changed to save a little money since we added two extra days and airfare) and July 5-16 BC GV.

Here's the funny part - the airlines has only opened up to bookings up to
July 10. So we are booked on the way down ($79 per person) but have to pray that the next airfares that open up are just as good! Wish me luck.

Sorry to make you change the Be Our Guest List once again.

Can't wait to see the Hurricane Hannah's menu - sounds like some great additions!

Hey everyone! We are headed back to Disney again this October. I can't wait! This trip will be DH, myself, DD 3, our new little edition who will be about 3 months, and my mom. We are staying at BCV September 30th to October 8th. While we are there we are celebrating our anniversary, our daughter's 4th birthday, and our little ones first trip.

We love the food and wine festival plus MNSSHP. And this year DH is doing to ToT 10 Miler.

I bet Teena would love to meet your new daughter!

I'll add you to the list.

If you get a chance, please take lots of pictures of your room and view so we can add it to the BC Deluxe Room thread (and live vicariously through you)

I also requested a beach shack at TL and got it with out a problem.

The people at the BC IPO office have been amazing!!!!
That's great to hear. Thanks for sharing.

Not a problem at all!

Awesome air prices!

Thanks for the nice words, my friend.

Sounds like an exciting family trip! It is so nice to hear about all of the little ones making their first trips.

Someone a few pages ago asked about using a snack credit for a milkshake at Beaches and Cream. The answer is YES! Each night we were at SAB the kids (and me too!) would get a shake from the takeout window and enjoy them poolside. In fact, when we told the kids that we would be staying at BC is year, my daughter asked if we could get shakes again...so it definitely made an impression on her!

I have you both on the list with vague dates, so I will revise those listings now.

Thanks! Is it dangerous to assume you are Nate and Ben's mom? I'm MADdie, EMma, and LUCy's mom...

Well, hello twin! I've been away from the thread for the past few days because . . . . we also added two days to our trip! And I'm so happy about your Poly/BC split! In my opinion, it's the absolute perfect split. As you know, we're not doing that split next week is because my husband loves BWI CL and we've stayed at BC so many times recently. But if I were making all the decisions unilaterally, it would be Poly/BC and in that exact order!

As for the two extra days, my husband decided he wanted to stay an additional weekend in exchange for a day at . . . Universal - eek!!! Dee, you know I've always planned to do this someday for Harry Potter, but when it came down to it, I just couldn't stay at Universal. So we're doing Poly/BWI/AKV and going to Universal for just the day when we transfer from BWI to AKV. I'm reading (some VERY last-minute reading for me) that it's a good idea to wait until we get there before deciding whether we need the express pass. On a Friday in early February, it might not be so crowded. Also, our 6-year-old is lobbying heavily for a 2-park pass so that he can go on the Despicable Me ride. Not sure that one ride is worth the additional cost.

Yay!!! So excited about this - thanks for the report!

Now, our older boys can help to monitor our 6-year-old on the slide while I wait by the slide exit. But when our older boys were younger, I would walk with them across the walkway and they would go up the stairs on their own. Then I'd walk back across and wait for them at the slide exit.

Here's my description of the area from the SAB photo thread I put together a while ago:

We've also seen several questions about getting from the pool area to the larger Jib Slide that starts at the top of the pirate ship and goes into the pool. Guests must exit the main area of SAB and cross the pathway to get to the slide entrance.











Here's the view of the slide entrance as you exit the main area of SAB:



And here's the path along the side of the ship to the slide entrance:



Here's the stairs up to the top of the slide entrance:

Thank you!

Oh, FYI: BoG, not only is it one of the cheapest sit downs that we have eaten at WDW in a while, it also was one of the best meals period. DW has the shrimp & scallop pastry, DS & DD has the Cornish hen, and I had the pork chop. Absolutely delicious!
Great to hear! We have an ADR next Tuesday and I was thinking about the pork. Thanks for the reports and enjoy the rest of your trip!

At YC it's the elevator on the left on the back wall. Behind it is a group of pay phones. It was made to look like an elevator so both sides would look alike!

Yup, that's the origin of the name. And unfortunately, I have some user's remorse over the name. "Natebenma" doesn't exactly roll off the tounge.

I do have an alter-ego "BeachClubDee" but I don't use that very often.

Thanks for sharing the origin of your name. I have to admit that when I read your name, I thought it was a clever take on "Made 'em look!". Like the old joke when you say "There's a giant spider behind your backs"

I am so excited to hear about your trip to the dark side!!!

You are correct about the express pass. Wait until you arrive to see if you need it. I can't remember if you only need to purchase it for those who will use it. Like if your youngest isn't able to go on the bigger coasters or Forbidden Journey, then you probably don't need the pass for him and one adult.

Don't forget, FJ has a single rider line!!! You NEED to go through the regular line, or the castle tour, at least once, but if you want to go on the ride again without waiting in line, then consider using the SRL. One parent waits at the exit with the youngest, the two boys go, then the other parent goes last. I call that "sandwiching" the kids.

I'll PM you to discuss some other US/IoA stuff so I don't have to ban myself for going on this thread.

Cuz y'all know how I don't tolerate that!!!

Hi there everyone! Thank you for the fabulous thread! We just booked Beach Club for August yesterday. It looks like I have a lot of reading to do!

We booked a standard room. Does anyone know what views are available with those? I am assuming parking lot but maybe there are other areas to request? I am not too worried about it, we're just happy to be staying there for the first time and got a fabulous rate!
We have stayed at BWV and know that we absolutely love being able to walk to Epcot and DHS.

Once it gets closer I will request a balcony but I know it's a 50/50 shot.
Hope to get to know you all better as I plan

Am I imagining things or did I read somewhere today that you can get a milkshake from Beaches with a snack credit?!
