Thank you. We are leaving in 2 and half weeks and I am trying to get all of the little things I need to know in order. I think I will go back and reread the first page and look at your maps again so I can take notes on everything we need to know .

Mandara Spa at the Grand Californian --- $99 for $200 of services.

We're local, and my hubby (at my urging, ahem), just bought a voucher and booked me for a massage, hair treatment & manicure.

20% mandatory gratuity will be added, but the savings is still substantial.

Have fun!

Thanks! I've done these twice before (local too) and it's a killer deal! I just bought mine too!

Sorry Ellen....

Hi! Just wondering if my fellow DVC owners can shed some light. I want to have my hubby take the kiddos to Build-A-Bear during their special private event for hotel guests. I'm wondering if our DVC discount (20% according to the Portable Perks) will apply at that time? If anyone has done this, please let me know. Any experiences with this perk would also help. Thank you!

Is there a DVC desk in VGC that can print your membership cards?

Not in the building. The main DVC office is across the street and they can reprint your cards. I know from personal experience! Lol.

Can you turn in your eticket in during hotel check-in for the regular one instead of waiting for the turnstiles?

Yes you can. I've done it a few times before.

How is the wifi at VGC? I just realized my 11 month window will open for BLT while I am staying at VGC. This will be my first booking as a member, so is the wifi dependable enough to book online? Or would it be easier for me to go to the DVC office there? Or just call MS?

Thank you!

WiFi in the villas works fine. The hotel (except the rooms built with VGC) have older WiFi hardware and have more problems.

I stay in both the hotel and villas, and bring along my own WiFi router (Airport Express) just in case -- all rooms have hardwire ethernet.

We stayed in a studio just last week and all three of us on the Internet each night. It works wonderfully! Our 11 month at Aulani opens up while we are on our DCL cruise. I am trying to figure out how to handle that with no Internet!!

We used this perk a few years ago and it was great! I think there was only one or two other families with us, such a more relaxed Build A Bear experience! I'm sure the DVC discount works then, but it was a few years ago so I can't remember exactly.
I've enjoyed all the guest perks we've participated in,especially the power walk through DCA in the am. Looking forward to doing this in a few weeks now that Cars Land is open, if I can get up early enough!
