I appreciate all the nice comments, everyone! I have a few updates to make to the Be Our Guest list from the previous thread and this one, I'll wait until morning.

Just returned from the middle school band concert- one of the selections tonight was "Just Can't Wait To Be King"

My DH and DS made our first visit to the VBC Jan 2013 and we are hooked! We'll (hopefully) be there again in Jan 2014.
I would love to add you to the Be Our Guest list! Let me know if your trip materializes!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.



You will love how incredibly close the Beach Club is to EPCOT!

I will post lots of pics of the room and view. I am soooo excited.
Very nervous about the heat in July but that's why we pick Beach Club for SAB.

Thanks again everyone for sharing.
Thanks for posting your dates- I have you on the list for July, but I will add the exact days when I update.

We have taken 3 trips to Orlando in July, 1 in June and 1 in August. We are going again this July, so it must not be too bad!

Missed it by "that" much.

Actually, since my posts take up the first page and a half, nobody makes Page 1 but me.

Thanks so much for your review!!! So glad to hear you loved the Beach Club and thanks for the vote of confidence for the seafood roll. This New Englander is not discouraged and is going to check it out when I get there.

We'll be there at the same time! We are at BC from 6/29-7/7, with 6/27 and 6/28 at Coronado Springs. I'm planning this trip without my girls or husband knowing which resorts we're staying at, so I'm very excited to be surprising them! We're staying Club Level at BC (Can't wait!), and Business Class at Coronado, so lots of pampering for us!

Robyn is planning a DIS meet on 7/6. You'll miss us by one day. What a great reason to extend your visit a day .

Room request for GV club level

So glad you got the new thread up Dee! Things look great! I went to bed last night with some angst, as the old thread was so close to closing. Then, first chance today I log on, and TADA! NEW THREAD! Woo hoo!

Question regarding room/view request...IPO said all the GV rooms have a full balcony (our first request), but no daybed (our second request). We'd like to be close to the lounge and elevators/and or lobby. Would this be a feasible request? Is this even possible?

Also, I've searched and searched, and can't find info on the view from club lounge. Is there a balcony off the lounge with tables, and if so, what's the view?

Disney's Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie is the result of a wonderful transformation of a former sweet shop. Tucked inside the collection of shops and restaurants in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower replica, this new café is the best kept breakfast secret for early bird Disney-philes. The eatery opens at 9 a.m. daily — two hours before the ropes are dropped to allow entry into World Showcase. Guests in the know can access the bakery through the park entrance between the France and England pavilions.

Hows THAT for your "Tip of the day"!!!!
