Catching up on the thread this morning and reading all the thank you's to Magicalmoments4 and starting to feel a little sorry for myself because I didn't receive my recipe card. Checked the pile where I've been tossing the envelopes with ticket orders for the next jazz band concert (treasurer of HS music dept here ) Ta da!!!! There it was! So, many, many thanks MM4. You're a star.

We have no desire for any celebrity autographs, but my son does want to do JTA. I figure we want to be in line at the turnstiles between 6:30 and 7.
Last year the boats started running at 7 am for a 8am scheduled opening. We left YC at 7am last year, on foot, and beat the boat with time to spare. We walk fast though!

Keep a close eye on the SWW thread on the theme parks board. Last year the park opened earlier than scheduled almost every day (30-45 minutes and virtually everyone in line went straight to JTA sign ups). If you are at the DHS gate by 7am, you will get a sign up slot if you head straight there

Thanks for the replies on my coffee question! I sometimes look forward to waking up so I can have a cup of coffee. Disney coffee makes me want to sleep in. 😔

Can BCV peeps use the refillable mug station at the boardwalk bakery? To avoid Nescafé, I would prefer to not have to bring my own to brew in the room.

My first set of ME luggage tags arrived!! Actually, technically it is my second set. I called to get extra tags and they sent them right away with a note that the regular package with the instructions and passes will come separately. It may be a bit 'cause I am not arriving until June 17. But it made for an exciting morning.

Yacht Club deluxe room discount

Has anyone received a discount on a deluxe room at Yacht Club? I have received one at Beach Club for a deluxe room but it wasn't available at Yacht Club even though I was booking a year out. I am wondering if they are ever available.

My question is where is everyone eating dinner on your arrival night? I am still up in the air on that one. Our plane arrives at 4:30pm (1:30 California time). I originally had reservations for Cape May, but with the CC guarantee I thought it might be too risky. I then made reservations for Captain's Grille, but I have recently read that they have changed their menu and read poor reviews...so I cancelled that! Ideas?

I worried about dinner for arrival night too. We land at 4:45pm. I finally decided to just plan to go to MK 7-11pm ish. If we are too tired from travel we can always just eat CS at the resort or CG walk up and get to bed early. If we are too excited for that we will hit the park. This way no worries about being late for a credit card guarantee adr.

I will be there for SWW next weekend and will try and remember to post back what time I see the boats starting to DHS. Hoping to get to SWW Fri or Sat next week.

I realize that the discount has to be available in the category that you'd like to book. But, is it common, these days, that it would have to be Lagoon View or higher? If so, I'm a bit surprised by that considering it IS already a deluxe resort. I know we booked a room discount at the Yacht Club a few years ago with no problem (standard view). But, it sounds like you're saying it's not as easy to do that these days. Again, though, I could "maybe" see them being more restrictive at a Value or Moderate resort...but this is already a Deluxe! I'm now wondering if I have to give up my "dreams" of getting some sort of discount at all.

If you book the day the discount comes out you may get a cheaper view but I wasn't able to get the discount on our trip except LV or higher.

BCV guests can use their refillable mugs at the Marketplace and Hurricane Hannas. I think the "official" rules are that you can only refill the mugs at your resort during the length of your stay.

But some people, including my sister, have been told that by CM's they can refill their mug at any resort. The truth is that right now no one checks you when you refill your mug to see if you really are a guest of the resort. Eventually, Disney is supposed to roll out RFID refill stations, which will somehow control who gets to refill their mug. Boardwalk Bakery has set up a refill station for the resort guests at Boardwalk. Officially, you most likely can't refill your mug there.

I always brought my own ground coffee when we stayed in the villas. I just made one zip lock bag of coffee for each pot I planned to brew, and threw in a coffee filter. It was easy.
