Anyone know the best way to get a case of water to the YC? And how much before should I order it. I'm at 9 days out now so I suppose anytime would be fine.

This is an excellent question, and one we see a lot. I'm not sure we have seen a definitive answer, but I would love to try to compile something for the FAQ.

That Turner Drug option sounds interesting. I keep forgetting about that. Do they deliver everything directly to the front desk or bell services and not the convention center???

Anyone know the price of a case of water there?

This might actually be a good solution for the person who was asking about sunscreen since they were only doing carryon. Wonder what the price of sunscreen plus delivery vs. the cost at the BC Marketplace is.

If anyone has recent info about the prices of a case of water from the following sources, please post:

Beach Club Marketplace (no delivery fee)
Hess Gas Station near BW resort (no delivery fee, but must walk or drive there)
Walmart/Target- must drive there, or take cab

Delivery Options:
Turner Drug- Cost? Delivery Fee? (There's a telephone number on page 1, Post 14 of this thread, if someone wants to research)
Staples- Cost? Delivery Fee? To front desk or convention center?
Garden Grocer- Cost? Minimum order required

Hi Nannette. DH and I are going to the F&W this October for the first time. I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the special events! Have you done Sweet Sundays before? I think the Parisian Breakfast is new this year right?

Holy Cow ... It sure is quiet here. I miss my two blond girls already!!! Jeanne called at 1 AM to say they finally landed and Lily was off to see her father. Apparently on the plane Jeanne asked Lily if she was excited to see Dada and she said "No Dada, I want Pop-Pop and Mickey". Made Bob feel like a big deal to be up there with Mickey. She also calls Pop-Pop the "Kissing Monster".

Looking forward to meeting up with all the guests that are there now and coming in soon on Sunday and Monday before I head off to Vegas to help set up Jeanne's classroom on Tuesday.

We check in on September 26th and I cannot wait! I don't think I go more than 3 hours without thinking about the relaxation to come at the BC. Anyone else this obsessive too??

The only hiccup? DH just told me yesterday that his boss (who I actually really like) and his fiancée and 2 other couples from work (that I've never met) are coming down on our dates and want to stay at BC. I foresee a lot of work conversations.... Hoping they'll all get annoyed spending much of the day standing in character lines .

Hi everyone!!! I've been catching up and finally I can help Dee out. I just read about Turner Drugs and was checking out pricing, so here you go...

soda (coke, diet coke, pepsi, diet pepsi, mt. dew & sprite) 12 pack, 12 oz cans are $4.99 each.

water: Nestle, 1/2 liter bottles, 32 bottles (case) $7.99 or 6 pack $2.49 or Crystal Geyser, 1/2 litter bottles 24 bottles (case) $6.99 or 6 pk $2.19.

Delivery fee is $7.50 to all Disney Resorts including Swan and Dolphin. If your hotel is not on the list it's $10 to $15 depending on location.

It also states to call for delivery fees (407) 828-8125 and all online orders are $7.50.

The last part is slightly confusing, but I think it's safe to say if your staying onsite it's only $7.50 with no minimum $ amount needed and since they deliver to all resorts for the yc/bc/bcv it should go directly to that resort not the convention center. Hope this helps.

Hi Kerry, Yes I have done Sweet Sunday's and it's a lot of fun. Theres a celebrity chef and they make 3 desserts while you have breakfast and champagne! Breakfast is a buffet and pretty good. You sample the desserts that are brought to your table. The Parisian Breakfast is new this year... I'm excited to give it a try. When DD and I went in 2011 we did a lot of things so I skipped doing those this year with the exception of Sweet Sunday's because I really like this one! We did the Tequila Tasting, Grand Marnier Seminar, Party for the Senses Wine View and also bought the I think it was 6 wines from 6 countries. Food and Wine can be a lot of fun if you plan it right. I printed out the menu of all the booths and then highlighted the countries and the food and wines/drinks I wanted to make sure I did while there. I find that if you don't know where you want to be you can end up wandering and miss something that you really wanted to try!

I hope this helps... and just so we keep it YC/BC related staying at the YC/BC is really nice for F&W I'm staying at AKL CL though

If it's available to you, you will see options for them in the dropdown Menu. Same place you get to your reservations, dining, etc...If they are not visible then it's not available to you yet.

Hi everyone! I would love suggestions for our check in day. We will be staying BC CL. We will fly in by 11am but probably won't be to the BC until 1pm I am thinking. I have made no plans that day. Would love to hear how you would spend check in day. We have park tickets for that day as well.

Dinner suggestions welcome too.

Thanks.
