Dee: Sounds like you have a busy week to deal with!! Thanks for finding a few moments to keep up with the thread

For those asking about discount rates at BC/YC standard view rooms, I was able to get one last year and I used a PIN code for 2011 and 2010. I used the VISA rate this year for a GardenView room.

NM: So jealous that your trip in coming so soon!!

In 6 days I get to make my dining reservations for my November trip with my new to arrive baby! So excited!! Now if flight prices would just come down so I could lock in my dates but in the meantime I will make tentative plans and reservations (for those that are wondering, we are coming from Detroit, and I refuse to fly spirit, and the rest of the prices are crazy high! Delta, our airline of choice is over $425 or so- for Orlando, that's ridiculous.

Here's to hoping your airline gets booked with a great price

Congrats on the new baby, that and a trip makes for a very exciting year .

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'm new here, and I love the chatter. Its friendly and fun - one of my favorite resort threads, and I've been on most of them .

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?


Too funny

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.
Oooh love the sound of Berry cole slaw! Yum!
Have to say Dee I am seriously jealous of your stamina-between thread up-keeping, school/amateur dramatic performances and now teacher appreciation day (which is a fab idea by the way) and themed birthday parties I am in awe

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!

Happy birthday Ben

I have been checking weather dot com daily for the last two weeks to try and get an idea of what we can expect during our trip. Guess what?? Our arrival date now shows up on the 10 day forecast ! Woohoo! ( cloudy, high of 89, low of 70, 0% chance of rain)

Ack!! I just got a notice from Southwest reminding me of that very same fact! I've been extremely busy so I haven't had the time to go into Uber trip planning mode. I have a general idea of my trip since it will be Star Wars Weekends centered and we have done that before. Also we are only planning 3 ADR's for this trip. Brown Derby, Le Cellier and Kona for breakfast which will complete my Poly trifecta of having breakfast lunch and dinner there.

Not being tied to too many ADR's frees us up for some spontaneous dining options. I plan on steering the gang in the direction of the BC/YC for a Lobster and shrimp roll and ice cream break sometime during our trip. The boys will surely want some of those delicious burgers so it will be an easy sell. We plan on taking the boat from Hollywood Studios to the Yacht Club dock and then we will probably cab it back to our resort at POR after our lunch.

Hurricane Hannah's is open from 11:00am- 6:00pm and Beaches and Cream is open until 11:00am- 11:00pm with the take out window being our planned destination. There are outdoor tables located in that area so we can take our goodies over to them and sit down and enjoy. These tables are covered by an overhang from the building. There are also tables located indoors in the Marketplace area and the Solarium, so if the weather is too much for you to eat outside you have those options.

Remember Beaches and Cream does not take advanced reservations, except for large parties (don't know how large) so if you get there early, say at opening like Mickey T does then it will be fairly simple to get a table inside if you wish.

For those of you not staying at the resort this is an excellent opportunity for you to check it out. If you are bringing the kids with you you may need to put a paper bag over their heads so they don't get too good of a look at Storm Along Bay. Once they see that pool you'll never hear the end of it!

Boy, I really, REALLY hate to "rain" on your parade, BUT that forecast can and will change many, many times before you arrive.

For a better assessment, try a local TV station

Wondering if this will work

As a programmer it should not be this hard to post a picture.

So I am guessing that I can not upload from my PC or phone (have tried both)

LOL

I totally understand about the weather changes. Thanks for the link. Hoping to avoid rain by being totally prepared for it! I was just sooooo happy to see our date on the 10 day forecast. It means our trip is getting closer.

So we took advantage of the *** deal and booked a stay at YC for August 18th to 21st after 3 nights at AKL on the visa deal. So good pricing all around and looking forward to it!

A quick question...
Two years ago we found the bumps at the seams on the slide in SAB to be too rough (actually down right painful...). Is that still the case? We enjoyed the rest of SAB, just not the slide.
