Travel agent has already added adjoining rooms to the reservation. Online checkin is allowing me to put 2 choices for requests. We would like full balconies. What should be the other request if we would like to see something of a view or maybe fireworks? We will be utilizing SAB daily (afternoon) hours. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We will also be arriving at the resort around 11 am.
You definitely need to make sure adjoining rooms is the first and most important request. If you booked standard view rooms, your view will be a parking lot or roof. If you would like a view of something green (courtyard, woods, garden) or water, you need to change your reservation to a garden view or water view room.

Please remember that requests, including requests for adjoining rooms, are not guaranteed. Your chance of a full balcony is about a fifty/fifty shot, especially if adjoining rooms is your first request.

On your on-line check-in, make sure adjoining rooms is your first choice. Your second choice should be full balcony. Just because your travel agent requested adjoining rooms doesn't mean you are getting them. You need to make them your priority choice and even then, you may not get them.

But, but, but WHERE WILL BUZZY STAY???????

Oh, that's right... next to the Oreo bon bon's!


BONJOUR VYRG!

Please consider taking a taxi cab to the Super Wal Mart located at Vineland Road (SR535) about 9.6 kilometers away away.

The address to tell the cab driver is: 3250 Vineland Road Kissimmee, FL 34746 Phone number for the Walmart is (407) 397-1125

When you are done shopping you can call a taxi to come and pick you up from the Walmart. The phone number for the Disney approved Mears taxi is
1 407 422 2222


I did this on my last trip and it worked out great! I caught a taxi from the resort and it was about a 15 minute ride and going to the Wal Mart it was approximately $20 dollars (US currency) (15.5 euros)

Coming back it was approximately another 15.5 Euros. I called the Taxi to come pick me up from the Walmart to take me back to the resort and it only took the Taxi about 10 minutes to come back to the Walmart and then around another 15 minutes to take me back to the hotel.

At this Wal Mart they have many different food items, Fruit, Wine and beer and a Disney section with clothes and some toys. They also have shoes, sunscreen, medicines and toiletries. Really, they have just about anything you would need. This means MUCH more than a supermarket that would just sell food. Walmart is more like an American department store and the prices are low so you get a great value for every Euro you spend.

Bonne chance et avoir de très bonnes vacances!!!

After flying all night, with very little sleep, we arrived early into Orlando and we were at our resort by noon. We had an awesome first day with a nice boat ride to Downtown Disney, a fabulous lunch at Earl of Sandwich, pool time and a nice dinner in the POR food court. It is almost 9:00 and we are ready for some sleep. Early MK day tomorrow. So excited!! Definitely going to stop by the BC this week to get an early fix before our stay there later this trip.

It does not give the choice of adjoining rooms on the online checkin that is the problem. I will call in tomorrow and ask the cm. thanks for the response.

That's a great idea. Make sure they show the adjoining room request on your reservation. Then personally I would not do an on-line check-in. Since you really want the adjoining room, I'd rather go up to the regular check-in desk and before they start the check-in process, ask them if your rooms are adjoining. If they are not, tell them you really would like them adjoining and if none are available today, then perhaps they could set you up for a room change the next day to adjoining rooms. If you do an on-line check-in, your rooms are assigned ahead of time and the keys and check-in is already done ... all you do is pick them up and go. Just a suggestion.

Ok, I'm jumping back in! I have been SO busy I couldn't keep up with the thread, but the time is getting so short now that I can barely believe it. My kids found out about the "surprise" trip to Toronto (which was planned ages before this one) but have no clue at all about this trip. My love of Disney stuff is well known, so they don't think twice about me having SAB as my screensaver, etc.

For those who don't know, if I can pull off the surprise right to the YC lobby, it will be a miracle. We are traveling with friends who have kids that are our kids' BFFs. Neither set of kids have any idea that this is even in our minds, let alone actually happening! I had planned my DD to travel out west to spend a week with my sister on August 10th. I've arranged it so that we fly into Toronto an hour before her flight arrives, and then the plan is to tell her and DS that no, we aren't staying in Toronto right now, we are getting on a flight to Orlando! We arrive at 11:30 pm so we are crashing at Pop for the night. The other family arrives at lunchtime the next day, and we have plans to have them meet up in the lobby of the YC. If we can pull it off, neither set of kids will know that the other is going to be there. If I can pull this off, it will be one for the record books. I overheard my DD tell her other friend that her ultimate vacation of ALL TIME would be to go to Disney with this friend, but that it won't ever happen. Well, yes it will. In 42 days it WILL! I get tears in my eyes just thinking about it. The kids have been SO good this year - my DD has been so conscientious with her schoolwork, and my DS (who was diagnosed with a serious reading and written output disorder last year) has been working so hard with his tutor... He went from reading and writing at an early grade one level in September of this year to being at a grade 5 level by the end of the year! He also has been so good about going to tutoring all summer, and he should be caught up with his schoolmates by the end of the summer. I am so incredibly lucky that this all fell into place for us to be able to do this! I will enjoy watching them have fun as much as I will enjoy having fun myself!!!

Dee, I think I'm booked in YC CL SV (but honestly, I don't know! It's been a whirlwind!) I wish we could have booked BC, which is where my heart is, but the RO discount had no BC rooms and it saved us about $1,000! The other family has the dining plan but it was the same last year and we still felt good about our choice to skip it. We have our ADRs done: Via Napoli, Yachtsman, Chefs de France, Tusker House, Captain's Grill, Coral Reef and last night the 5 pm reservation at Whispering Canyon Cafe so we can head on the boat to MK for last night Wishes (or ride rides during Wishes if we've already seen it. LOL). The other mom was a little nervous, asking me if I was OK getting up early for RD, and seemed a little concerned about my afternoon break plans. Should be a bit different from last year! I think this time our touring strategies will mesh better. Not sure in the heat if we can keep up with them, but that's the glory of staying onsite - room and pool await all who want to grab a bus. LOL

Sorry for the long post, just had to get that out there! I'm ready to bust. Can't post a ticker, never know what prying eyes might catch sight of it!!

So Glad to hear all of this! It's even more awesome that the kids are working so hard and making such wonderful strides. There is something to be said for those that know the rewards of hard work.... it will take them where ever they want to go and your two are going to go far!

Here are some complimentary dancing emoticons to help celebrate the excitement of your upcoming trip!

Ok, I quickly swept the thread pages 226-236. If I missed welcoming you or if I missed a question that wasn't answered, please bump your post.

I do hope that the issue that the one BC Diser had last week at the boat dock was a fluke!!!

My plan is to be at the dock around 7:00, and since it's our first full day there I think we will all be super excited and energetic enough to make that happen
Dang! I'm not sure that we will be out at the boat dock quite that early, probably more like 7:30. We have the fireworks dessert party the night before then if we are up to it we are going to stay at MK until scheduled close, which is 11.

Let's text that day to see if we are in the same area of HS in the morning.

Here's a YC related question. According to post #9, there are only 2 deluxe CL rooms?? Has anyone ever stayed in these? I've seen the photos on the WDW website but I'm curious as to anyone's experience who has stayed in one.
Gonna be a new thread soon!!!

Bumping your question.

I would LOVE to have photos of the Deluxe CL rooms at the YC so I can add them to the YC Suites thread.

If you attempt to go in the regular entrance you are told to get in the regular line but can still sit in the reserved area. The problem with that is that they start letting anyone sit there 5-10 minutes before the show so it could fill up if there are a lot of people in the regular line.

Dee yay!!
So they have moved the entrance back to Oscar's garage for diners with the Fantasmic packages? That's great news (except for the people who are NOT told where to go)

It is up to the lifeguards, but I think they would let her use the water wings. If they are the blowup kind, then you should bring them along and worse case is that you are told no and have to use the life jackets.

I don't think there is a height requirement. The rules sign for the slide recommends that people using the slide be strong swimmers, but reports are that they do let kids go on the slide with floatation devices like lifejackets.

So very fantastic!!! Can't wait to hear how it all unfolds!

I prefer the décor of the BC too, but I would have absolutely no qualms about staying at the YC especially if it saved me $1,000!!!

Starting out at GF in Sugarloaf CL. 7/25 - 7/30 .
Then moving over to BC in a deluxe CL room. 7/30 - 8/5 . Hoping for room 4557 Deluxe room that we have had before !!! That room has a balcony almost as long as the entire room ! And overlooks the BC quiet pool, and some Epcot fireworks. Love the deluxe rooms.......they are pretty large!
I think I have some pics somewhere ???

Sorry! No special prizes

Just an opportunity to be listed with others who will be vacationing at the YC/BC/BCV at the same time as you:

Post 15: Be Our Guest list

If you have pictures of the room, I would LOVE it if you could post them here.

Or here:

Beach Club Deluxe, Suites, VP and Presidential Rooms


I don't have any pictures of 4557 on this thread.


Thanks!

My love of Disney stuff is well known, so they don't think twice about me having SAB as my screensaver, etc.

For those who don't know, if I can pull off the surprise right to the YC lobby, it will be a miracle. We are traveling with friends who have kids that are our kids' BFFs. Neither set of kids have any idea that this is even in our minds, let alone actually happening! I had planned my DD to travel out west to spend a week with my sister on August 10th. I've arranged it so that we fly into Toronto an hour before her flight arrives, and then the plan is to tell her and DS that no, we aren't staying in Toronto right now, we are getting on a flight to Orlando! We arrive at 11:30 pm so we are crashing at Pop for the night. The other family arrives at lunchtime the next day, and we have plans to have them meet up in the lobby of the YC. If we can pull it off, neither set of kids will know that the other is going to be there. If I can pull this off, it will be one for the record books. I overheard my DD tell her other friend that her ultimate vacation of ALL TIME would be to go to Disney with this friend, but that it won't ever happen. Well, yes it will. In 42 days it WILL! I get tears in my eyes just thinking about it. The kids have been SO good this year - my DD has been so conscientious with her schoolwork, and my DS (who was diagnosed with a serious reading and written output disorder last year) has been working so hard with his tutor... He went from reading and writing at an early grade one level in September of this year to being at a grade 5 level by the end of the year! He also has been so good about going to tutoring all summer, and he should be caught up with his schoolmates by the end of the summer. I am so incredibly lucky that this all fell into place for us to be able to do this! I will enjoy watching them have fun as much as I will enjoy having fun myself!!!

Dee, I think I'm booked in YC CL SV (but honestly, I don't know! It's been a whirlwind!) I wish we could have booked BC, which is where my heart is, but the RO discount had no BC rooms and it saved us about $1,000! The other family has the dining plan but it was the same last year and we still felt good about our choice to skip it. We have our ADRs done: Via Napoli, Yachtsman, Chefs de France, Tusker House, Captain's Grill, Coral Reef and last night the 5 pm reservation at Whispering Canyon Cafe so we can head on the boat to MK for last night Wishes (or ride rides during Wishes if we've already seen it. LOL). The other mom was a little nervous, asking me if I was OK getting up early for RD, and seemed a little concerned about my afternoon break plans. Should be a bit different from last year! I think this time our touring strategies will mesh better. Not sure in the heat if we can keep up with them, but that's the glory of staying onsite - room and pool await all who want to grab a bus. LOL

Sorry for the long post, just had to get that out there! I'm ready to bust. Can't post a ticker, never know what prying eyes might catch sight of it!!
Amazing!!!! Can't wait to hear all about this!!!! So fun
