Ohhh, I'm loving that idea!!! Good one

What would be the best way to get from Beach Club to Grand Floridian? I have reservations for the afternoon tea at Grand View Tea Room. We don't have park hoppers, so going through Epcot is not an option. If we take the bus to MK, then monorail to GF, how long would it take and how early should we leave in order to be at GF at 3:30? And how about going from BC to Poly for a 5:20 reservation at Kona Cafe? Thanks for your help.

Disney recommends that you allow at least an hour (preferably more) when using their transportation in instances like you describe. Your plan to go to MK then monorail to GF or Poly is good, but you might also look to see if the boat is there. GF is the first stop on the boat leaving MK to GF and Poly, while GF is the last stop on the monorail. If you don't want to spend an hour in transit, there are always taxis available at BC. Not sure what it would cost - maybe $10 - $15 plus tip.

shipping to hotel

Anyone ship packages recently? Which method did ou use to ship?
If you ship USPS, the package goes to a general Disney World delivery location before it goes to the hotel. When deciding when you should ship the package, you need to keep that in mind and leave extra time.

If you ship UPS or FedEx, the package does not go to the general Disney World delivery location. You do not need to leave extra time.

However, if you ship UPS or FedEx, and you are staying at a hotel which has a convention center (such as the Yacht & Beach Club), your package will be delivered to the convention center. The convention center office is staffed by a separate (non-Disney) company. They will charge you for handling your package.

The fee is based on the weight of the package. In March 2012, the fee was:
Up to 5 pounds: $3
5-20 pounds: $5
above 20 pounds: $10

You can walk over to the convention center to get your package. I have heard that you can have the package brought to your room after you check in, but I have never tried that.

If you ship USPS, I have heard that the package goes to the front desk of the hotel rather than to the convention center, but I cannot confirm this based on first-hand experience.

As for the address: sometimes people suggest that you put a lot of information in the address. However, I have used a FedEx label and they have a limited number of lines for the address. I have done it like this:
Recipients Name: Disneys Beach Club Villas Phone: 407-934-8000
Company Name: ______________________
Address: 1800 Epcot Resorts Blvd
Address: Hold for guest [put your name here]
City: Lake Buena Vista State: FL Zip: 32830

I have done this twice and it worked fine.

I have never put my arrival date or reservation number in the address or on the box.

I did follow advice that I saw here and wrote my last name on every side of the box. That way, when you want to retrieve your box, it's easy to spot even if other boxes are on top of it covering up the address label.

Thanks Kacie! I'd appreciate it! Maybe I'll tell them I have any imaginary friend or multiple personalities !

Heres a tip - if anyone trades vinylmations; i just scored a whole bunch at the disney store on clearance for 2.99 each....great for trading! My son got interested while we were in the World and it was costly paying regular price. I also ran into a lady who was buying about 10 an planning to use them as favors at her sons birthday party. just a thought.

There are also a wealth of tips that appear here that are good for stays just about any where, so tune in when you get a chance and maybe you'll discover something helpful for your other stays.

It was great to hear of your latest obsession. Summer will soon be upon us and no one that reads this board will be at a loss for drink ideas to serve when guests come over.

I forgot to tell you fine folks - at Captains Grill - my FAVORITE place, we ate their for breakfast and dinner, if anyone goes for dinner, request to sit in AMANDA's section - she was SPECTACULAR. Her service was SPOT on. We happened to go for dinner the night after I discovered Sunken Treasures....there I was sitting by an EMPTY SAB watching the kids happily swimming in 65 degree weather in January...squishing sand between my toes and lazily letting the day go by while being served one Sunken Treasure after another.....well, the day must have gotten away from me because when it was time to leave, ummm shameful but i couldn't stand up and for some reason i kept giggling! By the time we made it to Captains Grill i was hung over! And Amanda, bless her, knew exactly what would make me all better...of course, i while i was feeling better, i wasn't completely healed and for the first time allowed dh to sign the bill, well if you are on the dining plan you know that bill can be confusing...lets just say Miss Amanda really liked my husband that night! no wonder she took such good care of me!!!
.and so folks, stay at the YC - everyone there, takes such great care of you
