Thanks for posting the links to these! The BC video felt so familiar! I'm sure, after July, the YC one will feels just as familiar. I'm such a geek....I yelled out, "There's Teena!" while watching!

Am I the only person who was picking out the windows/balconies of the rooms they've stayed in previously?

Yes, I can see them doing this off season, but not hot months. In winter you'd never catch me at a WP, and makes sense during low attendance.

Up to 5 pounds: $3
5-20 pounds: $5
above 20 pounds: $10

When you're thinking about cost, it sounds like you have to factor in the cost of shipping your package back home after your trip, because I doubt you plan to leave those plush characters behind when you go home. I know people have had the hotel help them ship packages home.

Here's a money-saving idea - do you have a friend or family member with a key to your house? Keep the toys hidden until you leave. Have someone go into your house while you're gone, and set up the huge plush characters on your kids' beds, or maybe sitting on the couch holding the remote. Nobody is happy about having to go home after a Disney trip. You would be doing an In Room Celebration to make everybody feel better about going home, instead of an In Room Celebration to make everybody happy about being at Disney World.

Okay, I said it was an idea... I didn't say it was necessarily a good idea...
I love this idea Definitely think it is something worth doing to lessen the "pain" of leaving wdw! Brilliant idea

Maybe one or both of them could elaborate on this.

Thanks for bumping me up Dee Hoping I can pull it all off!
Totally OT but I swear I met your identical twin while picking up a friends kids from school last week!! I actually did a double take Honestly if I ever meet that woman again I will ask if I can take her photo and send it to you! You don't have any relatives living this side of the Atlantic by chance?

I was looking at the people Teena was talking with and wondering if they were DISers, too.

I was looking at the balconies thinking, will we get one like that?

Sad, tried to add free dining to our BC ressie, they only offer it on laguna view or higher rooms, would have cost me $800 more to stay here over CR...so back to CR...really love CR, but was way too excited after reading about BC! Please post if anyone gets FD on garden or standard view! Good luck all!

I did make a couple of breakfast reservations for the week but sometimes we just want to wing it as well.
Bumping- I have never been to the Swan or Dolphin, so I don't know the answer to your question. Some who post here have stayed or visited. My guess is that you would be ok without a reservation, but really that is based on nothing other than a hunch.

Unfortunately, it looks doubtful. If June is anything like April and May were for me and my family I will be lucky if my head stops spinning before my July trip!



It sounds like a great event, though, so I hope the turnout is fantastic. If anyone from this area of the country is interested in checking it out, here is the link:

From everything I have heard, sending a fax to the resort is not a very effective method for getting your room requests. Best way is to make sure your request is listed on your reservation.

I always add my requests as soon as I make my reservations and then follow up (through Disney Central Reservation Office or IPO if I have a club level reservation) about 10 days before my trip.

Hope that helps!

Too funny! I am not aware of any relatives in your neck of the woods. My family background is French, by way of Canada.

It hasn't happened lately, but people used to tell me all the time that I look like someone they know. Then, one day we were boarding a plane from Orlando (cruise) to Boston and the flight attendant said "I know you!" I told her I get that all the time. Then she said "No, you live in my town" and she was right! Small World, huh?

Bummer!

As others have said, keep checking. Hope you can plan a stay at the Beach Club, but I certainly can't fault you for going for those savings.

Thanks for letting us know!

Thanks, that info helps a lot! I was thinking the fees were going to be much higher, but this may make it worthwhile to look into FedEx ground. You are right I do have to figure on bringing them home but I think with our food supply and diaper supply used up we will have a little more room on the trip back. Plus they will no longer need to be hidden from sight.

And very cute idea, but as I intend for these to be our only at the park souvenirs I really want to surprise them there.
