I can't remember- on EMH mornings, does the bakery open at 8 am or still 9 am?

Did someone post the blog link on this thread? If so, please repost, if you can.

So far, so good here. We have power. Just lost my internet connection for a minute, but I brought it back up.

Not sure of snow totals, but the snow is up to the top of our front steps.

Hope everyone is safe and warm!!!

Jay, check in when you can. Be thinking of you today, especially during the high tides.

PS- if you are looking for a Tropical Distraction today, I am almost finished my Atlantis Trip Report. Just 1 post left to write- my tour of Nassau. It starts on Page 56 of my Welcome Foolish Muggles Trip Report. If you are considering a trip here with your family, there's a lot of info!

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



Thanks for posting the link about the F&G festival. That's cool!

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



I'm not really sure how many rooms at the YC have King beds and/or a King/Daybed configuration.

Add the request to your reservation now, call again 7-10 days out. Generally, when you have a request that is important to you, we recommend that you don't do the online check-in so you can discuss with the checkin CM whether your room request has been met. We have more info about this on Page 1, in the FAQ post.

I'm not sure if this advice will change with all of the My Disney Experience stuff, so if anyone has input about that, let us know.

I happened to snap one during our trip so I'm including it in this post. Sorry the picture isn't better but I used my cell phone to take it. These were in our BC CL room.

Thanks, again!

Thanks Pixarmom for all of the wonderful photos and info!

My youngest will be 7 by the time we go and figuring out the best visibility point for the pool slide exit/entry is going to be our biggest challenge. I don't want to be bothering her older brother and sister all the time and I have a feeling she will be on the pool slide the majority of the time. She is a good swimmer, but I like to keep and eye on my kids when in the water. Then add in the factor of the path being so long to the entry and in such a public area - it just makes me nervous... Even though the Poly pool is so much smaller it was pretty open visibility to keep an eye out on the kids.

For those of you with older kids, how do you re-connect throughout the day while at the pool? I'm worried the teenagers are going to be everywhere and I'm going to have to send out search parties.

One suggestion I have is to bring a notepad and pencils to keep with your pool bag. That way, you can leave notes to each other. Have a few checkin times.

Here is the WDWMagic link: http://www.wdwmagic.com/dining/boula...ly-opening.htm

Not sure what time the bakery will open on an EMH morning.

Suggested way to get to other resorts

Hello All. Hope you NewEnglanders and New Yorkers are surviving the bad weather. Philadelphia got a dusting..


We just booked our trip to the Beach Club for Early June (10th thru 17th). I can't wait to see what it's like there during warmer weather (December was freezing this past year).

I wanted to book a different restaurant for dinner. We usually do Epcot, Cape May Cafe or one of the MK resort restaurants. How hard is it to get to Wilderness Lodge (Whispering Canyon) from BC? Any suggested routes? Any other favorite restaurants you can suggest near BC (easy to get to from BC)?

thanks.
stay warm!

To WL, I suggest taking the bus to MK and then the boat to WL. Or if you don't have much time, call a taxi. Whispering Canyon is great. I also recommend Flying Fish Cafe just around the lake on the Boardwalk.

We've always done the checkin times, but I love the idea of the pencil and notepad - never thought of something so simple with all of this technology! However, not a fan of taking the technology to the pool. Thanks.

No power since 10pm.
No coffee but we have hot chocolate & tea
Propane so can use stove top
Thank goodness Internet for all able to log on through cell service.
No water (well & septic)
No heat( we are all snuggled up in my bedroom with a nice fire)

6 days on antibiotics and my head is pounding again so congested
Lots of resting, leaving the shoveling to the DBF and DS
