When did they refurb the Yacht Club? I like those linens so much better than what was there the last time I went, very nice!

I'm glad you got sprinkled with some pixie dust at check in. That's a lot of stuff you need to have fall into place, eh? I'm anxiously awaiting your next update!

I'm glad everything went well at the YC. It's such a beautiful resort. And the CMs there are super nice.
So, adding a child at check-in wasn't a problem?

Can't wait for your next update

Can't wait to see your pictures of Germany, Cynthia! Glad you are recovering from any jet lag although my neck is twinging in sympathy.

An Alaskan Disney Cruise is going to be so much fun!!! I am super excited for you! What an experience that is going to be! Loved little Donald running around and having fun -- hopefully you will not meet up with a bear like he did. LOL!

Hurray for such a stress-free check in to the Yacht Club. What a gorgeous room and perfect view!

How exciting about the cruise! I love cruises -- they're so relaxing! -- but I doubt I'll ever be able to talk DH into one.

And what awesome room luck! I love the YC -- it's tied with the Poly for my 2nd favorite WDW resort (1st place is the GF).

As a DISer, my first thought upon reading that your room was ready was: "I'd love that....I could get room pictures without kids and luggage and other clutter!"

Wow, you have quite a morning planned. But I think you'll make it.

Since you are checking out of WL...I have to ask - did the safe key ever turn up?? Maybe you already answered that and I missed it....

It was an amazing morning, I was positively giddy with how well it went.

Amazing is right. It's like extreme cruising! kayaking, float trips, float planes, deep sea fishing, helicopters to glaciers, zip lines, hikes, bikes...

I'm for your new ticker! I know we spoke about it on Liesa's thread, but I'll be excited to be bringing your ship to you! We won't be in your cabin - maybe neighbors? We are in 6014 - It was a cat 8 prior to their re-categorizing - deluxe oceanview. Now it is a 9 something? We booked on points and just chose the type of cabin that fit the number of points we needed to use! IKWYM about the balcony - this will be our first non-balcony cruise, but it will be a cold one, so I don't picture myself out there much anyway.
We seriously looked at cat 9 and for our week would save quite a bit if we did it, but a week earlier it would have been the same price as what our cat 6 ended up so that's how we justified the cat 6. It will be cold but then again, we are from Seattle so we figured we'll still be out on that balcony regardless. 50 and windy? no biggie. And if we are lucky it will really be 60's... not any different than sitting on the deck at our cabin which we love to do and just dress appropriately!

Exactly! I LOVE those rooms. Everything about them. If the YC had DVC we'd likely not be going on a cruise. I'll speak to this more later but it's really amazing the difference between the YC and BC. Totally different vibe and energy and of course the decor. And...the ages of the kids staying there. It was a perfect fit for our group.

No, the train is actually one of the excursions you can choose. Not sure yet if we will do the train, there are so many wonderful things to choose from. And of course since a lot of folks get to book before we do, certain things may be gone by the time we can book, as first time DCL cruisers, we are at the bottom of the booking food chain, not until June 9th!

Evan was not on the reservation and here is why. We got 9 day park hoppers at check in at WL for our group and had the DDP over there as well.

Sandie and Paul wanted to do a package with DDP and park hoppers. If Evan would have been on their reservation, he'd have ended up with another 6 day ticket, not something he needed or I wanted to pay for, and I didn't really want to buy him the DDP at the adult price.

So, based on CRO advice, we left him off. We had the rest of us on one room and had to get one day base tickets to get the DDP but the savings by the child rate on Eric for the DDP plus wierd Disney package math that had those 5 tickets running quite a bit less than if purchased by themselves it made sense to do it. So now I have 5 base 1 day tickets that will be used on future trips and upgraded at the time. One of them for the May trip!

That meant we needed to add Evan at check in so that he'd have access to SAB. One other stress I forgot about was that I was really worried that they'd assign Sandie and Paul to a King Bed room sine there were only 2 on the ressie and we REALLY needed a 2 queen room, preferable one with a daybed.

Thankfully at check in, not only did the magical CM hold a connecting room, he held one with the 2 queen configuration! And at that point I was so grateful I didn't press for the daybed in the 2nd room.

It it quite recent, within the last year and was a big part of the reason we chose the YC. I love the new look!

It was a lot, so much I forgot about the potential bed drama until Dan asked why Evan wasn't on the ressie. We really lucked out, major pixie dust!

I couldn't add him, Sandie would have to so I really had no idea at that point if it would be a problem but they were able to tell me that 1) there would be a second bed in the room so at least we were covered there and 2) that he would need a room key to get into the pool so it would have to wait until they arrived. Which was not a surprise....but still a bummer.

I imagine the bear is highly unlikely but hopefully we will see one! I'm much more interested in seeing a whale though.

The rooms are to die for, honestly and I was so shocked to get my actual view request I couldn't believe it. I really thought we'd be looking at the parking lot. Which would have seriously bummed me out for the price of staying there, even on a 40% PIN!

It was! It had some pro's and cons that I'll talk about later but it was exactly what I'd asked for and I was THRILLED!

I'm not sure it will be as relaxing as a warm weather one but it will be totally different for all of us and that's exciting and I hope, give Jeff and I some decent adult only time which is unheard of on a family trip.

I the YC.

It is so true! I actually felt bad for not taking more pictures but...I was in a bit of a rush. However at least I got some, as compared to the WL where I didn't, for exactly the reasons noted above!

I did not already answer that, good catch! We were not yet checked out....

In theory the gang was up and starting to pack while I was doing this and the tour...

So you'll have to wait and see!
