Thread Watch!

Just a heads up- we are speeding towards the magical 250th page of this thread, so I will be starting up a new (but very familiar) version of this forum in a few days. I'll let you know when it is time to check out our new digs.

I'll be away most of tomorrow-helping to run the Staff Appreciation luncheon at the middle school. Still have to make my two contributions- Berry Cole Slaw and Chicken Marsala.

Then towards the end of the week I need to prepare for Ben's birthday party- a Hobbit/Dr. Who themed extravaganza complete with "Geek Salad", Nerds Candy and a Tardis cake.



What do we want?

Time Travel!!!

When do we want it?

Irrelevant!

Lol...post pics of the cake. I have several friends and students who are big Dr. Who fans. I haven't watched since Sarah Jane Smith...

I see where you can rent tubes and buy noodles. Can we bring our own?

We haven't been back since BOG has opened, so I'm not sure. I would love to know!

Just wanted to give a shout out to the IPO team at the BC/YC. While I normally tend to handle all the planning myself, I found myself having difficulty getting an ADR at O'Hana for our Oct stay. So I decided to call them and see what they could do and lo & behold, I got lucky...something so small made me one happy camper .

Edit: ha...just realized that I just hit my 1,000th post

Just BOG. Regarding the pretend drinks, as much as we love Disney, we have to admit that the frozen butterbeer beats LeFou's brew by a zillion miles. But it's worth running your own taste test for the fun of it!

On another note, I always love our "many uses of refill mugs" chatter.

Do you think it would be worth having 2 separate threads, one for specific resort info, and one for friends/chat?

You can bring your own noodles to use at SAB but the only tubes allowed are the ones from the resort. Some exceptions for babies/toddlers- floats are permitted as long as a parent is in reach.

The suggestion has been raised on occasion. I personally am not in favor for several reasons.

1) I have no time to maintain a second thread, or probably even to post to it. If someone else would like to start something up, they are welcome to and I will provide a link.

2) There is some chatter here, but I think a lot of people enjoy reading about their fellow BC/YC enthusiasts and keeping up is what keeps a lot of our veteran posters coming back with their valuable information.

3) Everyone here tries really hard to get answers to the questions that are posted, even with all of the discussion, and I put in a lot of time and effort keeping the first page of this thread updated so that many of the questions people have can be answered easily by checking there instead of having to read every post or using the search feature.

I do know some people who have received discounts on a BC or YC standard view room for travel this summer.

.
We did for CLSV just last night...when we originally booked we could've gotten a SV room at the 30%. We are going in August.

Keep an eye on the Discount Codes and Rates Forum and try and book soon after they come out.
