Hopefully, someone who has been recently can give us the answer! I assumed they planned to return the movies to the beach near the camp fire, but hadn't seen any posts about it.
As bethclayton said the movies were back on the beach during our last trip too..not sure about the activities..but I will gladly check that in a few weeks!!!

Have you been lonely without me posting at the same time the last few days!!???

Although I'm not sure about making plans for rides so far in advance, we are not that big of planners except for a few ADRs.

Off to read more about what's happening here on the Dis, but wanted to stop in here first and say hello!
Welcome back! Nothing like a birthday celebration at the the GF .. Happy planning..ADR's FP+'s and all!

MickeyNut..Grannyminnie too!

ahc Sorry that you have been so under the weather...Glad that you are starting to feel better tho....

maxie I agree about the courtyard pool..and have lamented about it here before...we too miss being able to swim in a pool with a deep end... I also think that it had a kind of serenity..such a nice relxing way to spend an afternoon...dont think we'll be doing any swimming in February..LOL..but I do think that we need to think about some dining...I have a few ideas...how about you?? Its always about the food!


Hope that all of my fellow GF fans had a terrific Thursday!

I wish Disney would have added a decent CS in at least one of the Epcot resorts instead of the limited Marketplace.

I agree about the YC being like the GF, I think that's why it appeals to me. It is also quieter and more laid back than the BC (IMO). I'm still working on my DSs, so hopefully one of these trips we'll be able to try another Epcot resort .

....

I've tried everything I can think of to get them to sway toward the YC, but they aren't having any of it. I will keep trying, though, because the Epcot area is nice and you can't beat walking to Epcot and DHS . Thinking maybe a split stay might be in order for a future trip so we can do Epcot/DHS with our YC (or BWI) stay and MK/AK with our MK resort.
I hope you can convince your family to give YC a shot, the split stay idea might just work! We recently did a split YC/GF stay, best of both worlds and YC CL is wonderful, the CMs treat you very well.

We like the rooms in BC but the public spaces of YC.~sigh~

About the buses - it seems the season dictates whether all 5 Epcot resorts are on the bus route. We have had all 5 in the past but lately we have had only Y&BC for MK - can't remember for sure about AK but I know it wasn't all 5.

As Maxie86 said, ESPN Club is so close and the prices are good (for WDW!).

Welcome back, Stephanie! Good to hear from you.

I get what you are saying, we took a year off from WDW after a disappointing trip - went to Europe instead. It made it all the sweeter when we returned, I hope you have an awesome trip. How could you not in RPC?!

Thanks, beth! I'll put that on the first page. When we were there in April, I saw the placards and set up for the activities at the courtyard pool and wondered why they were still there - the beach pool was open at that point.

You are welcome! I understand about not wanting to miss anything. Planning a WDW trip is like a job sometimes.

Yes, I absolutely have! Wondered where you had got to, not posting when I post.

Thanks for the update, I'll be looking forward to hearing all the details in a few weeks. I'll bet you can't wait!

I think most of us here are forlorn about the changes to the courtyard pool. I miss the deep end and the serenity, too. We do swim a lot when we are on vacation, now there is no "swimming" at the GF! Wading, more like.

When we are at USO, we play a game of "point Disney" vs. "point Universal"! LOL! The pool depth HAD been a "point Disney" as the Loews pools are more wading than swimming. We still have SAB's lazy river - for now.

"Always about the food" - I can relate!

Is there something specific you want to know about? The activities rarely change much, I can look at my April guide, or maybe someone here has their more recent activity list.

ETA: if you were looking for the movies list, build a better mousetrip has a listing for the GF and Poly (not sure how accurate it is, they still list the GF movies at the courtyard lawn) :

Sunday - Wreck-It Ralph
Monday - Halloweentown
Tuesday - Frankenweenie
Wednesday - Nightmare Before Christmas
Thursday - Brave (Oct. 31 - Hocus Pocus)
Friday - The Little Mermaid
Saturday - Peter Pan

Disney's Polynesian Resort Movie Schedule ~ 8:30PM

Sunday - Robin Hood
Monday - Nightmare Before Christmas
Tuesday - Halloweentown
Wednesday - Frankenweenie
Thursday - Tarzan (Oct. 31 - Hocus Pocus)
Friday - The Sword and the Stone
Saturday - The Little Mermaid

When I was in Sandy Cove in August they had more GF stuff than is shown in pic on 1st page of thread. I was going to buy dh something but a group of conventioneers were in the way. Of course now I can't remember what they had but I will get a pic next month.

Posting within an hour is pretty close, I agree.

We love MNSSHP, too, so much fun! We haven't managed to go in several years, they made the discounts tough to get during the week my DD had days off from college.

Your list sounds good, I'd love to know the answer to all. I remember the discussion about M. Mouse, hope they've restocked, so odd. More GF merch is always great!! We do not buy a lot of souvenirs - when we fly, I hate to try to find a spot in my luggage for more than tees or small, non-breakable items. We did purchase a beautiful AKL print one year for DD's b'day, as she celebrated while there. (drove instead of flew that trip) I wish I hadn't missed out on the GF pillows. Maybe they'll bring them back!!

Good Friday back to you, glad someone knows what day it is.

Do the resorts have special Halloween activities? I didn't realize; I know when they have Christmas or NY's stuff, they keep it kind of quiet - they alert guests the night before, or so I've been told. We are rarely there on a holiday as we try to choose less busy weeks.

I hope someone can answer from past years, but if not, maybe someone there now or in the next week can answer.

Good to know! I'm (im)patiently waiting to hear all about the upcoming visits.

Hello, Blue... I'm really excited to see what you think about the new VGF! And I hope you get to see a room in the villas~
Not long til you need to pull out that suitcase!

I'm going to be interested in checking out the new Vera Disney bags. I've never gotten the Disney D&B, but may get one of the Veras.

ahcupcake, hope you're done with that nasty sinus infection! No trips in your future yet?

I have a D&B but very heavy and not practical although I absolutely love the phone case

I think I will get a dis vera bag but I found a place online that shows a new pattern for December. It has navy, lt blue, lime green, and teal colors with Mickey icons. I think I will prefer those colors for with jeans BUT I will need one for November trip so I'll just have to have 2

I do know that the Mods and Deluxes (not sure about values) have special halloween activities that includes some trick-or-treating and one or two characters in halloween costume for pictures and autographs. I was just trying to see what type of other halloween activities that GF had.

I didn't much care for the two patterns of VB so far, but I like the sound of the December print, trishadono!

Thanks, I didn't know the resorts have t-or-t! Cool.

ETA: thanks for the link, I'm sure anyone going for H'ween will appreciate it. Oh, and I notice you live in our favorite place in FL!!

Plus that is where most of the convention people are because it is close to the convention center. I'm on vacation, I don't want to be mixed up with a bunch of people working. Boca Chica is close to both pools, the beach and main building, but with the fence around the pool you would have to walk around it or go through gates to cut through. I don't think noise is a problem anywhere at the GF.



Sadly, the days of a quiet "quiet" pool are over. It is not a pool for adults any more. Most of the pool is under 3 feet deep, only a very very small area that is over 4 feet. It is more like a giant kids wading pool now. When we were there in May there was only three tables and they were by the pool bar. I never go in the water, DH did, but I loved to sit at a table and have a drink from the bar and sometimes eat lunch there. Since there were no tables there was also no shade.



Welcome back.

Limited CS is really the only thing that keeps us from booking in the Epcot area again. We didn't have a good experience with the buses as they were shared among all 5 resorts, but that wouldn't be enough to keep us from staying in that area again....it's that darn CS . I wish Disney would have added a decent CS in at least one of the Epcot resorts instead of the limited Marketplace.

I agree about the YC being like the GF, I think that's why it appeals to me. It is also quieter and more laid back than the BC (IMO). I'm still working on my DSs, so hopefully one of these trips we'll be able to try another Epcot resort .



I hope you have a magical trip......November is a great time to go .



Welcome back . Congrats on booking RPC for your birthday. The GF is great in itself, but RPC is amazing .



Hi ahcupcake . I hope you are feeling better soon.



I've tried everything I can think of to get them to sway toward the YC, but they aren't having any of it . I will keep trying, though, because the Epcot area is nice and you can't beat walking to Epcot and DHS . Thinking maybe a split stay might be in order for a future trip so we can do Epcot/DHS with our YC (or BWI) stay and MK/AK with our MK resort .
Thank you both! It's really great to be back!
