THANK YOU!!!

Yes I know other ice cream options are also available as snack credits. Allears.net lists some on their menu page.

We also LOVE Teppan Edo. We used to love Le Cellier but I don't think it is worth 2TS credits now.

Sorry. No donuts. Tons of other goodies though, including oreo bonbons two nights ago and a very tasty coconut pastry this morning!

OMG!!! The coconut danish was the best thing I had in the lounge. Well, maybe it was the lobster salad, but the coconut pastry was mighty good!

The people at the BC IPO office have been amazing!!!!
Quick question about this, please!

I haven't been to WDW in about 15 years so I'm basically brand new to everything that they do now. From what I'm gathering from all of my reading here, I believe you can see your ADRs online and cancel/change them at any time, correct? (Assuming times are available, of course.) I guess this is through your online Disney account, right? Well if you make them with the IPO office are you still able to see them online to cancel or make changes, or do you have to go through the IPO office every time?

Thanks!

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
and happy reading!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1.



As far as your request for a full balcony, I would suggest adding the request to your reservation now, then call around 10-14 days before your trip to make sure it is still noted.

The view from a standard room will be a parking lot or rooftops. I'm not sure it is worth putting in requests in this category concerning view. You could put in a request for a location if you prefer to be closer to the lobby or closer to EPCOT, but if it was me, I would just stick with the balcony request.

You could also see if there are garden views available for your trip, usually around $10 or so more per night than standard.

I'll add you to the list.

You picked the perfect resort for EPCOT lovers!

Snacks around the world

This thread is one of the best! It lists "every" snack that can be used as a SC....there are some great items that some people don't realize are a SC.

This is 2013 and still being updated:
http://www.www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3039087

This is the 2012 thread to get an idea of the places that are still missing:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....1#post43602721

I have taken the best items from this list and made a 8.5 x 5.5 card printed on both sides and laminated that I carry with us in the parks. I organized it much like he did by parks and the resort we are staying at so when we are somewhere and want a snack my family looks at the card and knows the "best" options for the park we are at.

The one thing I did notice though is that milkshakes were not listed last year at BC but it seems as if it was something that was overlooked based on other posters!
