Just a quick hello as I'm getting caught up over lunch! :-) DD's party was a success yesterday and she had SO much fun playing with her cousins and all. SO wound up though. Took her a bit to settle down and get to sleep last night and she was upset she couldn't get up and play with her dolls this morning. But, definitely a good time all around. :-)

85 more days!!

DH asked me the other day if we should tell the kids about the trip...I suggested maybe telling them the morning we leave. Or once we get down to Sea World tell them about Disney...not sure...but DS has been glued to the TV for Disney week. It's cute...I just want him to appreciate it more this time if possible. And just how much money and time goes into planning it, etc. thoughts/ideas?

Does everyone already know that Jeanette made a change today? I'll give you a hint - she changed to a famous sandwich!

Sounds great

Thanks for that information. I requested a 3rd floor room without a connecting door. Then I looked at Tikiman's Poly room number chart and saw that there's only one 3rd floor LV room - all the others are TPV. It happens to be at the very end (furthest from the lounge) which probably means it doesn't have a connecting door, which would be perfect. But, not sure what our chances are of getting that one room. We'd prefer 3rd floor since they have a balcony and we prefer not having guests above us.

Does anyone recall if the end room in Hawaii, furthest from the lounge is the one with the palm tree in front of it? I seem to recall walking past last summer wondering why some of the Hawaii TPV room views were obstructed by a palm... Off to find photos.

Also at other resorts. Sad, so now I only bring sunscreen and a book down to the pool, and wear one of those waterproof boxes around my neck with my kttw card in it and some cash for snacks.
Yes, you're in! Let's start practicing: Do you prefer the Bangers and Mash or the Bubble and Squeak from R&C?

Thanks so much for mentioning WL. I hadn't heard about that, but you're right, this can happen anywhere and does. We don't bring anything to the pool or if we do, we stay with our belongings, but reading about the robbery right after booking just settled badly with me so thanks for putting it all in perspective

Both times (each in Sept. / GV and CL-GV) we were on the top floor and had connecting doors; the rooms were both roughly in the middle of the hallway. I'm not sure if it was at capacity the time we staying CL but it was very noisy compared to the non-CL room. (Not just neighbor noise, just constant commotion in the hallways sort of thing.) My guess is you'll be just fine if you nabbed a no connecting door at the far end of the hallway. I think we'd be happy staying again, just not CL. Now, if only they could plunk down SAB at the Poly, I'd be set to switch back to Poly permanently. Darn that SAB.

Welcome back!
Many of the LV rooms have views blocked with large palms. I think that's why they get the LV designation instead of the TPV . We had LV 2503 once and there was a HUGE palm smack dab in the way. Still a great view of the castle, but you had to crane your neck to see the fireworks. Sorry, I don't remember too much about the rooms down on the other end of Hawaii.

We've never had a problem with noise in Hawaii. Then again, maybe we were the noisy ones so we just didn't notice.

Well it looks like will be resort changing after all. Since the BC GV rooms are not including in the FD discount, the DH says we have to change. Out of the options I gave JM, the one he is happiest about is the AKL. I just hope they have some PV BB rooms available with the FD discount when I call and add FD to it. With that move, our trip has come full circle. It started out as a June trip at the AKL in a Arusha View Room. I'll just wait to change my ticker to an AKL one once I actually make the change.

I did talk to the person over bus driver complaints and he was almost as unhappy with what she said as I am. Hopefully, I will get a call back before I leave for school.

Hello RCers,

Marie-You all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Please know Your neighbor is totally out of line. I am so sorry you are having to deal with this. Sending hugs your way.

Kook-15 days? Congratulations! You are now an Honorary British Holidaymaker!!! Who knows? Maybe IPO will send some PG tips and Jaffa cakes up to your room to make you feel right at home. Carry on.

Jenny-Hooray for a good deal on flights.

Imhall2000-Great change, congrats!!

Lacey-I hope Oct free dining is added for you.

Koh-Glad the party went well.

Missout-Your resort specific sandwich selections are hilarious!

Iheart-Crazy Disney and their room designations. That would be rather annoying to find you had booked and paid for a palm view!

Wookie-Will stay tuned for your AKL ticker change.

Pas-Is BLT in your future?????

Gotta get back to work, always fun to stop by and say hi to the friends!

Miss - love the sandwich choices. Lol.

Pas - BLT? What brought that on? :-) Even though we changed from CR to AKL, BLT is definitely on my resort bucket list!!

Wookie - sorry you had to change for the FD, but maybe you'll enjoy AKL? :-) I will try to post pics of our room and the resort while we're there! (We booked PV)

Hello to everyone else!! :-)

Those sandwiches are brilliant

UGH about hallway noise, but thank you for the explanation. Being at the very end in the one and only LV 3rd floor room would be better, but no guarantee on getting that one room.

One reason we love CR/BLT and WL so much is that our Bay Lake view is always unobstructed and I've never heard much from neighbors or hallways and all rooms have a balcony. It can really be a crapshoot with Poly, so we favor CR and WL in part because it mitigates our bad room location fears. You pay such a premium for that LV/CL room that I would be disappointed with a palm tree obstruction, but it's only 3 nights and I can always change to CR earlier - maybe.

So you're the ONES. They really need to offer a PTV (Palm Tree View).

That got copied and pasted to DH. I got confused though at first when I read PG tips, without the capital T and thought it was some UK WDW park planning site and not tea

Well, I'm trying to figure out if I should be honest and let the DH know how much of a price difference the CSR would be. Since Mods get the Basic DDP, we wouldn't have to upgrade to it. We would get about $1,000 back for staying at the CSR and only just under $200 for the AKL. I know JM was excited about the bunk beds and not having to share a bed with his brother. Maybe, I'll leave it to the fates. If the PV BB room is available when I call first thing Thursday morning, I will book AKL. If it isn't then I will book CSR. I'm just so confused right now.

Hi Peeps !!

Seriously behind with the thread, life has a way of interrupting DIS time!
DD had her freshman dance, my DS was home for a visit and went to see my Mom over the weekend...

Belated Birthday Greetings to the RC DD's -- Candace, Jen and koh!

Big hugs for our RC kiddos and their moms.... Melissa, Jen, Pas, Wookie,

Marie, keeping you in my prayers for DH and your extended family in England. As far as the neighbor, you have no legal responsibility to pay her anything. She is not being neighborly at all, she must know about your DH and has no consideration and is just trying to play on your feelings to get the money. You told her no 19 months ago. Period.

Iheart, Love, your vow renewal pix (oh and the suite pix were pretty good too. ) Congrats again on your fabulous upgrade!! ! Im so happy that you got major pixie dust on your special trip!!

Pas, love your newest RC Yay for Brandon getting the play part!! and congrats Miss 4.0 So proud of all you! Great news for HRH ... and will be thinking of our Bree on Wed.

Jenny/Sheila/Piglets Mommy - for booking your flights... guess I have to get cracking at it too.

Kook, nice addition to your already impressive split. Will add the POLY to the list. Can you give me the new dates? btw... absolutly love the monorail kids meal. Making sure we get one of these in the summer. :yes:

Miss, Your tasty resort sandwiches are smashing!! Disney could use your writing talents. Oh I missed the 40% yesterday... could be cause I was driving for 5 hours back from Rochester...

Wookie, sorry about the BC, but AKL is mightly fine! (hope that JM has a better week. ) edit: don't stress over it, just wait until thursday...it will all work out and you will have a great time....at AKL or CSR! Can you get a rollaway at CSR if the boys don't want to share a bed?

Lacey, I'm right behind you in being behind

Magic, got the Kona ressie

GG, so thankful you and the family are safe from the fires...btw always nice chatting with you...make the drive so much nicer!

Ginny, been thinking of you and hope you doing well.

Welcome to all the newest members!! Apologies to all the posts and RCers I've missed.... Will plan to catch up later! (after our Y workout that is )

Thank you, me too. He won't go back to school until Wednesday. I still haven't heard back from the guy at the bus company. That may be because I told him that I was in class starting at 5. If I don't hear back from him by noon tomorrow, they will be getting another call from me.

This is a mighty cool RC, I must admit. I'm gonna stay there one of these days, I will, I will. Looking forward to both yours and Koh's reviews.

Let us know what you hear about the bus driver.

One reason we love CR/BLT and WL so much is that our Bay Lake view is always unobstructed and I've never heard much from neighbors or hallways and all rooms have a balcony. It can really be a crapshoot with Poly, so we favor CR and WL in part because it mitigates our bad room location fears. You pay such a premium for that LV/CL room that I would be disappointed with a palm tree obstruction, but it's only 3 nights and I can always change to CR earlier - maybe.
The more we go, the more I have to remind myself to take all of these reviews with a grain of salt. I was really scared from reading tons of reviews before our little POR stint but I'm so glad we tried it. Ya never know! It might not be "getting it out of your system", you might just be adding another layer of complexity to your RC repertoire. The way you're doing it sounds just the ticket, too.

It ate my last quote. Going to have to do it the old-fashioned way...

Janet: How was the girl's weekend? Did you have that lovely dinner waiting for you when you got back? Hope the drive was uneventful. Have fun at your tort... WORKOUT!
