I realize that towel animals are not a for sure and so did my girls, and I did prep them that they may not get them. But after it was requested you think perhaps they would have made more of an effort. Honestly that is one of the reasons that it is magical and I believe it should be a requirement for mousekeeping to know how to do them. They are not that hard and sure do make the trip more fun.

We did do the bakery one day, but again, nothing really hot to eat, more snacky stuff.

We did research all the resorts and thought this one would meet our needs. NOTHING that I read mentioned the times being too late for the open of things. When you go end of July/early August if you aren't there at early open you mine as well not go. EVERY park had fast passes for every ride gone by 1 pm every day. The waits for hot rides like Toy Story Mania were over an hour by the time the park opened for those not staying on property, even Space Mountain had a 1 1/2 hour wait by 9:30 am. And late hours were a joke - at 1:30 in the morning there were still hour to two hour waits at almost all rides. So it was either go early or forget about it.

So, I came on here to post what we found to be issues since even though I read this entire post prior to leaving, asked about the dining plan and food options in regards to the resort, and all that nothing was mentioned about the timing issue. You would think that during peak times the food places would open earlier to make sure the guest could eat and still get to enjoy one the main perk of staying on property - the early magic hours.

Just checking in to say we continue to have a great time here! The weather's been a little rainy but that's definitely worked to our advantage. We walked on to every ride at MK today - including Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, and Splash Mountain!
Taking the bus to MK this morning for am EMH was a bit stressful. Two strollers, 3 kids, several bags, and a super crowded bus made things interesting to say the least. But it was all worth it when we got there! And we met a really nice family from Albany, NY with 3 teenagers in the same age gap as my kids. It's nice to glimpse the future!
We actually took the monorail back - went via TTC to the Epcot monorail and walked through Epcot. That way we didn't need to fold up the strollers. It wasn't speedy and involved some extra walking but I liked it better (my DH would disagree ).
I was happy to see Teena before she left for Vegas. Everyone's been great - from Teena to the wonderful PhotoPass guy at BC who took lots of pics of my kids the other night. It was an unexpected treat since they were dressed nicely for dinner in Epcot!
I can't say everything is perfect but I would never expect that. Everything IS wonderful though!!!!

Just out of curiosity, what types of breakfast foods were you WANTING to have at like, 6am?

They sell cereal, juice, bread, etc. in the marketplace. There are fridges in the rooms. Couldn't you have purchased some cereal and milk, and eaten in your room each morning? That's what we've done every trip where we didn't stay Club Level...it's not a big deal. You get enough in your stomach for a few hours, then get a snack in the parks.

Many people who stay at the YC/BC (or most other resorts, in fact) do this all the time.

We're going in December too!! Haven't had a chance to read through the thread yet but I'm so glad it's here. I can't wait for our first stay at the Yacht Club. It's December 9-15.

I used to live in FL and when people ask me what my #1 Disney tip is it's to NOT go during the summer/hot/crowded months. We did this ONCE and it was hell on earth...my hubby said "never again"

You learn what to do/not do and what you like/don't like with each trip. We have stayed at Disney resorts that the service/amenities were not up to par...it happens. Everyone has their favorites. Our favorite is Port Orleans. Fabulous in every way. November is our first deluxe, the Yacht Club, and we are super excited

Also, are all the rooms with king beds smaller in size? I read somewhere that the rooms with the murphy king beds are smaller...is there a chance we would end up with one of those if we keep the king bed request in?
I'm quoting myself in the hopes that someone will answer my questions. Still wondering whether to keep the king bed request in or not
