We highly recommend the Les Halles bakery in France - new space, new menu, just wonderful food! We don't eat much CS at WDW, but when we do, Les Halles is at the top of the list.

At MK, Columbia Harbor House is a BC/YC thread favorite. Of course, if you're willing to wait, Be Our Guest offers a CS lunch. We really enjoyed our TS dinner there - pretty good food for a non-World Showcase park dinner - and very fun and festive. Many report that the food is even better at lunch than at dinner. So if that's not one of your dinner ADRs, it's something to consider for a CS lunch.

And at DHS, it's tough to find a good CS, but I think Starring Rolls tops the list there.

Hope you have a wonderful trip!

Excited for you! I love doing Online Check-in- always makes my upcoming trip feel so REAL!

MK - Columbia Harbor House (Liberty Sq), Pecos Bill's (Frontier/Adventureland)
Cosmic Ray's (Tomorrowland) or the new Be Our Guest which is QS Lunch and TS Dinner (Fantasyland).

HS - Pizza Planet, and.... I'm out.

Epcot - Sunshine Seasons (The Land), Boulangerie Patisserie (or some such thing - France), Noodle Shop (don't know the name) in Japan, Norway (why can't I think of the name and too lazy to look at a map).

HTH.

So I couldn't not do what he says (only when it is about booking a cruise) ... we're sailing on the Fantasy in 10 days!!!!!!!!!

Anybody that will be at the Y&B 4/21 and 4/22, I'll now be off work and on the Fantasy. Sorry I'm going to miss you all.
Hi Teena! The cruise sounds great...how exciting!

We will be there next week, so I hope to meet you soon

A certain someone would love to have his picture taken with Teena, if you happen to meet up with her!

Since we're planning on moving to FL this fall, my DW can visit on weekends, so she shouldn't be too upset (yeah right!!). Dee..... please make my T-shirt an XXL.

I am working on perfecting my "Chair Hog Alert Snort" (CHAS) even as we speak! Tomorrow I will start practicing the "Snapping of the Butt with a Wet Pool Towel" (SOB-WePT)!

I do have an Insider's tip About DHS. When grabbing a sandwich or dessert at Starring Rolls there never seems to be enough seats and they are outside in the heat or rain to boot. Aside from the "Cement Time Out Corner" (C-TOC) that Dee tried to popularize (UNsuccessfully!) last year, most people don't realize that you can hoof your tray a short distance over to the ABC Commissary and eat in Air Conditioned Bliss (ACB at the ABC!) at one of the tables there. Why heck, there are even TV's there to keep the kiddies entertained while you digest some of those wonderful Starring Rolls Desserts!

The ABC Commissary is one of those places that has way too many seats so no worries about finding a table there. I'm sure those with a variety of neuroses might wonder if it's "kosher" to leave your tray from Starring Rolls At the ABC Commissary. Ninja Mom is here to tell you to get off the ledge and back in the building. It's ok... trust me!

Oops! Gotta run.... security is coming and my Super Soaker is out of water...

if I chose near transportation on my online check in- what does that mean in terms of closeness to everything else? Thanks!

What? Not popular? You tell us this AFTER we took a family photo in Dee's Corner at Starring Rolls. I'll opt to sit in the corner, but will also admit that this is a great idea. There certainly ARE a lot of empty tables over at ABC . . . I like to stay positive, so I won't submit a detailed review of that particular CS location.

Since the rooms near the lobby are close to the bus stop and relatively close to the boat launch, I would guess that means close to lobby/BC Marketplace/solarium/Cape May. When staying non-CL at BC, that would be my favorite location and I'd definitely check that one (along with full balcony, of course!)

Our favorite trip was our surprise trip! Our little one was so in shock, she went back to bed thinking it was a joke. "You must be kidding," she said. Wish we could pull another one off, but now they think every time we have a surprise it's a trip to Disney.

So exciting! Love your husband's thinking! By the way, any word on if they are switching your days? We arrive on a Tuesday and leave very early on a Sunday.

The "girls" are really excited and going for their mani-pedis this afternoon, and we pack tonight.

We have two studios at BCV. Quick question:

What kind of coffee makers are in the villas?

I think I read Mr. Coffee makers in the regular rooms, but I'm not sure about the villas and my wife needs her coffee in the morning or else!

Looking forward to first "no kid" trip!

Please note that the coffeemaker in the 2BR was different.
These are the coffee makers we've always had in the villas.

We are doing the same trip - AKV then BCV the week before you.

I did have one poolside server who didn't know what a Sunken Treasure was. She was very nice, so I explained it was a wonderful blue drink, and the bartenders would definitely know what it was. She came back a few minutes later with drinks in hand... so be patient if you get a server who is unfamiliar with our favorite concoction.
