I had a dream the other night that we were upgraded in a big way...
When we did WL 2 years ago we were upgraded from a standard view room to a courtyard view overlooking the pool.

In my dream we were upgraded to CL....very weird

It doesn't say how big the "block" is.

I didn't see the "cheese sticks" on the list.
Thank you so much--this is just the info I was looking for.

It's called superintendent job security!

We have decided that as our kids have gotten older the homework/classwork make-up is too much. Our school expects it all to be turned in the day you get back and we seem to be worrying about it the whole time we are away.

Public... And it seems to be PA wide. Other districts are much more strict than ours.

LOL! I usually time it for very early or very late in the school year so it is easier for her to catch up. No one has expected everything to be done in one night though! That is too much!!!

Just back from a week at YC, and it was wonderful! We booked garden view, and our room overlooked the walkway from the back of the lobby. So, we ended up having a lovely view of SAB in front and the boat launch down to the right. The balcony was a great place to watch the fireworks portion of Illuminations. We ate at B&C (the No Way Jose was well worth the calories!), Hurricane Hanna's, and Cape May for breakfast- the characters were great, and the food was very good. We only made it to SAB one afternoon, but the kids loved it. We also stumbled upon the campfire and roasted marshmallows one night (someone asked about the time, I think it was about 6:30). Hopefully I can find time to post a trip report, but it may be awhile- reality is setting in hard now that we're back. Oh well, guess that means I need to plan the next trip!

Glad you had a wonderful trip! Post Disney Depression is a bummer, I hate that part of the Disney trip cycle especially because we will not be returning as frequently as we used to. May I ask, did you make a room request for that location and, if so, what did you request specifically? Just curious.

I am pretty worried about taking my boys out of school this October, but my brother is getting married in FL the weekend before and i just cant be in FL and NOT go to Disney. . I have never worried before but my oldest will be in 7th grade and he is taking honors classes, including whatever math they normally have in 10th grade (I have no idea yet, LOL, but he is in algebra 1 this year). His homework load is hard as it is. And, the principal at my younger boys' elementary has developed a more hard-line approach to unexcused absences in the past couple years. Technically, our district can refer 5 unexcused absences to a truant officer but it is rare. I can only hope it is ok! But we will be late May/early June visitors from now on.

So since this has been a hot topic amongst us vacationing parents, I did some research as to what ACTUALLY happens if/when you take your child out of school for "unexcused" absences, (at least in the state of NY).

Child Protective Services can contacted by the school district to investigate for educational neglect, however, there is well-defined criteria that has to be met to actually PROVE that educational neglect took place.

I'm friendly with a local CPS investigator, she says that unless the school (here locally) thinks it's foul play (abuse or parents don't know etc), they don't request an investigation. They are costly and long and usually are unfounded because it doesn't met enough of the criteria set forth in the law.

Bottom line? Huge scare tactic on the schools behalf. I agree kids need to go to school, but I won't be intimidated if they are physically with me then that's my choice.

Here's some light reading if you're bored:

No, we decided to just roll the dice, and that was a little pixie dust. It was also a handicapped accessible room, so the bathroom was huge. Not sure why we ended up there.

I joined this thread to learn about the BC and I was super impressed with how friendly everyone was and what a positive experience everyone was having. Lately it has become very negative about school districts. Not all of us educators are out to get people. Most of us are there because we love kids.

Now, can we resume BC/YC info and stories? Thank you.

Beach Club Rooms

Hi there!

I am new to this forum so please be gentle with me!

We are returning to Disney this August; the previous 3 times we have stayed at the Wilderness Lodge, this time we have booked the Beach Club.

We have booked a Garden View room, 2 questions:-

1. Can someone recommend the best room location to request?

2. Is it worth paying extra to upgrade to a Lagoon / Pool view room?

Many thanks for all your help.

Jonathan

Hello BC/YC Lovers!!!!!

Just popping in from our wonderful room at YC!!!

I plan on doing a trip report when I'm back, but since we still have 7 days left I wanted to do a quickie update.

Our room is very nice! We booked SV CL and I'm not sure if what we ended up with is just a really good GV or in fact a water view but it's beautiful!!!

Here's our view:



Oh! And we were Family of the Day!

And....the shower heads look like this...(for the PP who asked)



And the beers in the CL lounge are Heineken, Bud Light, Sam Summer, and Yeungling.

We do think the YC is a beautiful resort!!

More to come later!
