And in other news, our friends just returned from a week at WDW and report that they found Dole Whips with spiced rum in Epcot!! Just when I thought a Dole Whip couldn't get any better . . .

I hope it is not guests squirreling away bottles as souvenirs!

I call this... One Shampoo Bottle Away from an Episode of Hoarders






PS- these were obtained on multiple trips by more than 1 guest at Disney resorts.

How did you get into my Disney stash?

That's what I was afraid of, so I booked. I'm regretting not booking in January for $377 August fare, but we had a WDW trip coming up and wanted to use the $ for trip.

I saw some families doing that last year, begging the airline to move people to seat them together, but no dice.
Our RT, totalled was $445 each. First time we didn't book RT, but separate segments. So we are flying Alaska Air down, and Delta back.

We have never paid over $375 RT before. And usually under $350. I'm having some sticker shock

Love it! We have the same! I like the WDW and DL supply, but I really love the DCL stuff. (And our room host gave us a ton, so I'll have that around for ages - yay!)

life jackets on slide

Hello

I asked before on this board but no one was where could I find out for sure if you can wear a life jacket on the big slide?

Thanks

Motorized boat question

In your experience, are reservations for the SeaRaycers at the YC a must (early Nov), or are they available most of the time?

I think a few people said recently that their young children (or grandchildren) were allowed down the slide wearing a life jacket, but I think the final call would be with the CMs who are working at the slide/pool on a particular day.

Pool is nothing compared to SAB, but my kids still enjoy it. It was a little too cold for me this trip, though!

We have always thought the boat to MK was wonderful, and it usually goes direct to MK and back (there is a big boat and small boat that run simultaneously, so it is never usually more than 10 minutes before a boat arrives). Four some reason, there were times that WL and Ft. wilderness were sharing a big boat to MK. It was kind of a mess when that happened. At one point, the boat was returning from MK, with the first stop at WL. The boat was full and Nobody got off, as they were all going to ft. Wilderness, so none of the people at WL could get on that boat to go to MK. We ended up ditching the boat at that point and heading over to the bus. Anyway, in all of my stays there, this has never happened, so hopefully, it wont be a common issue.

On the bright side, I'm one step closer to our Aug trip! so Yay!
I totally agree. I did NOT enjoy buying airfare this year. Almost opted for the Auto Train but can't add the time to our trip this year. My account at work is almost quadrupling in size and our team is going from 3 nurses to 8 nurses

But, while in WDW I will NOT be thinking about WORK!

Yes.
As of last August they didn't care about wearing a life jacket on the slide.

The boat was my least favorite part of WL. Took forever. We always walked up when it was the small boat with a HUGE line of ppl. Nope didn't like the boat one but. Guess we're just spoiled by the Epcot Resort boats. So happy to be going "home" in May!

I'm not sure, and the person who provided the pictures, is not positive that it is the restroom you are talking about, but these are definitely at either the Yacht or Beach Club.

Perhaps someone here knows.

We still have a couple of volunteers visiting in the next month or so who can confirm, or take additional pictures if needed.

Let us know.

DISers rock!
YES they do ROCK !
Thank you SO MUCH natebenma & poolrat !
If these are the ones, it would be the middle photo. She is looking at Ariel's for the reception (not the bathroom ! ).....and we are being told that wedding guests will have to use the lobby restrooms in between Cape May and Ariel's. These would be the ones off the walkway/corridor that leads to the YC. So I'm not 100% sure these are the ones but close enough unless someone can confirm for sure in an upcoming trip to BC maybe ? Just want to see what the guests will be using. Thanks so much for following up natebenma !!!
