Does anyone know if they sell those small jars of Nutella in the Marketplace?

I've seen a few random posts mention that the YC Concierge Lounge might be refurbished/updated... Any truth to this or a possible timetable?

So, we leave in 5 days.

We call MIL last night because she is going to watch the kids for us in the resort room while DH and I go enjoy Epcot by ourselves one night for a few hours. She lives near WDW with my SIL. During this phone call, she mentions wanting to bring my niece over on a different day to go swimming with the kids.

I advise that is not going to be possible 1) because SAB is KTTW entry and my niece won't have one....neither will my MIL or my SIL and 2) I have zero idea about when exactly we will go swimming. This is usually a last minute decision...like we are at a park for the day and decide to go back to the resort for a bit to take a break.

I believe my MIL thinks I am just being difficult and/or trying to avoid them or something. Not true. In fact, I made a dinner reservation at Rainforest at Downtown so we could meet there in the afternoon one day and then have dinner.

Anyone know how far in advance you need to book the Sandcastle Club for the kids? Is same day available? I'm concerned MIL may hold my refusal to admit them all to SAB against me and bail on babysitting even though its Disney's decision to limit SAB to BC/YC guests, not mine. I'm just following the rules.

I've often thought you could get on the elevator with CL guest and get off and help yourself. And with CL rooms being on different floors the CM's wouldn't know without asking for a key. I'm definitely OK with it.

Can't give MIL advice because I have screwed that up before. But your crew could go to the quiet pools for a swim. There are three of them. No cards check there.

Also can't say enough about housekeeping...they've been great dealing with some unpleasant tasks.

On another note, our room is the 2nd room from the lounge...really nice view for a standard VW and while we thought it was going to be noisy since it's so close to the lounge, we've found it to be the exact opposite. One thing we noticed last night for the first time during evening's apps was that there was a CM standing outside the lounge asking to see everyone's room key before they were allowed to enter the lounge - a first since we've checked in and a first we've ever seen. Even when I walked out of my room & he saw me do so, he
asked for my card...another CM who knew us told him it was ok for me to go in. Found it odd, but then heard from another guest that they heard it was b/c a few guests not staying CL were caught using the lounge...not sure how true this is but I can see it happening very easily.
So glad DD is feeling better! Hope the rest of you stay well!

Not sure. The Beach Club CL will be renovated and enlarged "soon". Work possibly starting in early 2014. Club Lounge will be moved to the Presidential Suite while that work is taking place. Then the BC rooms will undergo a refurb, starting on the 5th floor and working down floor by floor.

THEN work will start on the YC. So we are not exactly sure how long all this work will take or when they will get to the YC, but it will be awhile. Many months. Probably have a better idea once the work has started at BC.

The way it is set up now, it's not that difficult. While you do need to scan your key in the elevator, there is nothing stopping a person from getting off the elevator with you and walking right into the lounge or if a guest already staying CL brings a friend up then I could see it happening. I have to say too that on Monday evening I was coming back to the room to check on my daughter and a very young couple got on the elevator with me. They hit the button for the 3rd floor and I scanned my card. As we were going up i heard the man ask her if she wanted to "go up" and get another snack. When I turned my head to look at them, the girl shushed him & nodded her head no. They got off on the 3rd floor and I continued up. I found it odd but was so honestly preoccupied with my daughter that I didn't think about it again until they were checking cards last night.

Aha! Excellent suggestion....didn't even think of this as a possibility.

Does anyone who is there now know if the lids from the old refillable mugs will fit the new RFID mugs? I might consider bringing one of the old lids if that was the case.

The new mugs and lids look like the old ones in shape so I would say it should

Here are a couple of pics of the view from our CL SV room. I know Pics of SV view are hard to come by so I hope somebody finds these helpful. We can see wishes above the trees in the first pic. Any questions, just ask.

Hey all!


We arrived today at noon and were magically upgraded to a beautiful, lagoon view Club Level room. We certainly must have an angel looking over our shoulder! Spent the day at SAB. Walking down now for dinner at Cape May and then heading to Epcot for the rest of the evening!

Just a wonderful gift and a beautiful day!!

Kay
