You could definitely spend a day just enjoying the YC/BC resorts and the boardwalk area. Then maybe the other day head to Downtown Disney!

I have a question about the BC/YC room safes. I've seen some pictures of the safe that shows a really narrow safe that has a metal key. Did they replace these with ones that have a combination you can enter? Carrying around a metal key is not ideal, and I'd worry about losing it. Can someone enlighten me?

In case Beaches n Cream's too busy or you need another non ADR place Espn & the brewery at Boardwalk are 2 other restaurants that don't take reservations!

I need to scroll back through this thread and catch up on all the news. I've missed being here!!

Also a question, what's the difference between YC CL standard and GV? Previously we've always been standard, overlooking the front entrance, so I'm curious as to where we will be this time since I booked as GV. Do we have a chance for a gazebo view? Maybe a partially obstructed lake view? It was only an extra $5 per night so I figured it was worth the chance of maybe getting something better. Even though I love the room locations of standard because they are so close to the lounge.

Hope everyone is doing well! I'm going to go read pages and try to catch up!
We will be there in May too. What are your dates? I'm a fan of yours from way back in the day when you did your Travel Channel Ultimate Fan Show. We had it on DVR for years. Hope we get to see you.

So true!! We just returned from a 9-day trip earlier this month, and loved our slow days in the Epcot resort area! One morning, we went over to DHS for a few last ToT rides and then spent the rest of the day relaxing at SAB and on the SEA RACERS at the YC marina. Soon, you will all tire of me raving about those sea racers, but for now, I just have to put in another plug. It was my husband's idea in the first place, and while I was timing the walk from Picabu to YC, I discovered he had rented boats. Our 13-year-old could drive and loved it. Our 12-year-old was too short to drive, and was a little scared riding with his older brother, but gave it a big thumbs up in the end. I didn't think I would really want to drive, but I loved it (and hit zero friendship boats while doing so - yay!) Our 6-year-old was a happy passenger. So between SAB, shopping, eating, renting sea racers, enjoying the CL lounge - wonderful day!

What was this show? I'm not familiar with it. Lately there's no actual travel shows on travel channel in my opinion, theyre all reality shows! I loved watching the shows on cruises & exotic destinations!

I have a Disney question that's from BC/YC. On some of the other resort forums I've seen people say that they buy 2 day tickets prior to arrival & then upgrade when they arrive to 4,5,6, etc days when they arrive. I don't understand this, is there a discount or bonus by increasing ticket days when you arrive? We've always had all our tickets paid with our package for total days we need before we arrived. Thank you Disney experts in advance!

New "Must Be the Sunshine" Visit Florida Commercial

Okay. Please note this will be my first visit to the BC so I am not an expert...but is that the "Kitchen Sink" that they have in the new Visit Florida commercial titled "Must Be the Sunshine"?

It's not a round sink - it's rectangular, but it is filled with ice cream! I'm sorry but I can't find the video, nor any photo clips from the commercial. They are playing like crazy in the Chicago market!

So true!!!

We also love renting the sea racers. The first year we rented them my oldest DS was 13 and was beyond thrilled that he could drive mom. This was the highlight of the trip for him. They have become a regular off day activity.
