Dee you are one amazing woman. Thanks for taking time out of your incredibly crazy schedule to make us a new home.

My DH and I are heading out to California Adventure this afternoon for some "Disney food". This time next week I will be busy sitting on my suitcases trying to fit in every last piece of summer clothing that I own (and a poncho....just in case)!! I have no desire to do laundry during our 10 day stay.

Thank you for this amazing thread. I am a long time lurker and recent joiner. My family and I are staying at the BC June 13-23. We have stayed at the Poly in the past and felt it was the right time for a new experience. This thread really helped us decide, thanks again.

hey everyone! Nice job updating the new thread Dee! The only thing that's changed for me is instead of Beach we are now thinking Yacht Club for our marathon weekend trip. Nothing booked yet, but will update when everything is all set. Til then I'm having lots of fun following along and am looking forward to hearing about everyone's summer travels!

Thank you, Dee, for the great job maintaining this fabulous thread. As a person sorta lurking in the shadows, I appreciate particularly the effort you put into making sure all the questions are answered!

Watching the free dining hubbub this week has made me wish I could move my dates so I could be at YC or BC (either is fine with me!) that much sooner! It would save a chunk of change too.

Love this! Me too! (we'll be there the same time) Although it remains to be seen if I make it through May...it's been a long month, and it's only May 9th!

Smile just back!

Just back from a 5 night 6 day trip to BCGV...This trip was just me and my sister, so it was verrrrry laid back and lazy. Free upgrade to a Lagoon view (full balcony)...We were in the courtyard behind the sand volleyball...2nd floor with a perfect view of the pier, lighthouse and the Dolphin in the distance. I left my cell phone (and pictures) in my sons car, so will post later. I had the lobster roll from the Boardwalk bakery and it was VERY delicious...one of those things we dream of long after the experience...pic to follow...(I was very impressed with this!) We also did the Tea at the Grand Floridian, which was really impressive (and a precious memory)...Via Napoli was another standout experience...we had the eggplant parmesan and a pepperoni pizza and we'll still be talking about it in August!!!...It was that good! As expected, the Beach Club exceeded all of our expectations....Perfect room, perfect view, Great food experiences....Ahhhhhh.......Missing it already!

Nice place you've got here for all of us Dee! Thanks so much!

I'm so excited about this trip. It's our first time since 2007, it's the first time we've been with our DDIL (they went for their honeymoon last year), we have a first timer coming with us (he's in his 20's), it's our first time staying in a Disney hotel and therefore our first time in a deluxe, and we'll be celebrating our 34 anniversary while we're there! Wow! Lot's to celebrate:banana

This thread (well the last one anyway ) has been so helpful and I'd like to thank all of you for your always ready and usually fun answers to everyone's questions.
