I imagine I could get one online, but somehow that doesn't quite seem the same. Bummer.

Just sayin'. :-)


Sorry to hear about your charm!

Just in case you want to replace it now:

The website does say 2 queens and a daybed, but the maximum occupancy on CL for both GV and LV show only 4, where the SV and Deluxe show max of 5. That leads me to believe that there are very few of those with a daybed.

Day 1 we will swim and eat at resort.


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1. Which resort: YC, BC or BCV?



This is a great place to stay if you are planning a lot of pool and resort time!

I have had no issues with the bus service to the MK. Our trips were in July, and we always catch an early bus (usually EMH). We have never had more than a 5 minute wait, and it is a 12-15 minute trip.

We usually use the monorail and spend some time at EPCOT when we are returning in the afternoon, so I can't provide any feedback on the afternoon bus from MK to EP.

We're staying BC CL. Our kids know we're staying at the Beach Club (we have stayed there 3 times and LOVE it), but they don't know about the Club Leve upgrade. Can't wait to surprise them!!

They also don't know we booked an Illuminations Cruise on 2/20 - DSs 18th birthday! Never done that before - should be great.

Sandy!!!

Seems like we hardly knew ya! But I'll put you on the Be Our Guest list as a last minute entry.

What great great surprises for your family!!!

Have a fantastic trip.

After going back and forth and back and forth we have decided to get APs this year and plan on a second trip early next spring! Which means we qualify for an AP discount and took advantage to upgrade to SV CL for our trip this May!
Congrats on your APs and the upgrade! I'll make the adjustment to your listing.

We were planning a split stay with WL and YC, but neither were apparently available with CM discount (CL), so time to start researching the GV rooms for daybeds/views/etc....inlaws are joining us with the same booking category.

This is our first time at an Epcot resort (usually AK and MK resorts). I'm excited!
I'll make the change to your listing.

The Disney website really needs some work. Add this to the punch list!

I know some of you are curious about where I am going. Perhaps a few of you are guessing that I am (or should be) going to rehab, after the posts from a couple of days ago.

Nope!

But I do have a startling confession to make. I have been cheating on you. I have been hanging around on another discussion board!!!



The Unofficial Barcelo Maya site is a lot like the DIS- vacation planning questions, trip reports, etc. however it is WAY smaller in scope than the DIS. As I hinted in a post, I am doing a Drink of the Day Countdown over there- posting photos from past trips.


Drink of the Day


The really ironic thing is that my husband and I dont drink that much. Really. Very rarely when we are home, and a little bit on vacation. Several of the drinks on my countdown are actually non-alcoholic versions ordered by the boys.



Anyway, I want to wish you all a wonderful week! Ill be checking back a couple of times before I go, but Ill probably be mostly lurking. Lots of last minute things to do.

MickeyT- The list is yours!


Adios, mi amigos

Dee, have a marvelous trip!

We were thrilled when TiW (Disney Dining Experience in those days) first became available for APers back in 2005. But if you're trying to figure out if it will benefit your family, remember that the first $500 spent will just recoup the cost of the card. No actual savings until $501. It still benefits my family but not as much as in the "good old days."

When I check availability, it lists the 2Q + Daybed...but I agree with your note and will put it as the first request. Also clearly states 'sleeps up to 4' Here's a link

https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/re...t/rates-rooms/

Here is what I cut/pasted from the 'Club Level -Garden View' category. I still don't understand why it doesn't permit a group of 5 from booking it...unless what you said is true...and there isn't room for a roll away. Both of my boys roll around a lot. Would probably be fine with just 2Q, but thinking the 8yo would prefer his own space...he gets enough of the 3yo during the day ( a little obsessed with his big brother).

Thanks!!!
I'm trying to get the Fantasmic package too. It will be our first time to see it - we're going to try to do the Hollywood and Vine package.

Have you seen the info about it on Deb's site?

Yes I was very sad to see the weather forecast for when I'm there next Thursday-Sunday.... It was looking good until I checked last night I guess it's still better than it would be up here!

Stay Warm Teena!


I JUST CHECKED AGAIN NOW AND IT LOOKS GREAT!! Fingers crossed!!

Stay warm. We were there in 2009 when the lows were in the 30's and froze, even though we had our winter coats, hats and gloves. They don't heat the buildings the way we do up north. I hope your cold spell is very short.
