We're staying at BC starting 10/19, and I was wondering if I can request a crib or pack n play? Does anyone know which it is?

Thanks!

Our coffee pot have always had the wire mesh we didn't use a filter.

I would but them at home and pack them, they are small and light, but I really don't think you will need them. Others can chime in if I am wrong, been to WBC 3 times.

I am 6 weeks out for my first trip to WBC. I will be there for two weeks. The first week I am there I booked through Utopia Vacations. The second week is thru my parent's RCI trade. Does anyone know if there is a way to link the two so I don't have to switch rooms?

Couple of other questions?
1. Do the rooms have the music system that can accomodate an iPod connection?
2. Are the Presidential's the only ones with updated appliances and countertops?
3. Any room recommendations for fireworks and Epcot view on a higher floor?

Shuttle

Where does the MK shuttle drop off at? Where does the Epcot bus drop off at?

I thought I read they dropped off at TTC, but then what do I do?
I have only ever stayed onsite and really need help.

For the MK it drops off at TTC and then you take the monorail or ferry to the MK. This is also true if you drive and park for MK.

For Epcot it drops off in the lot adjacent to all the Disney Bus stops. The main difference is you may walk a few extra feet and you do not have a shelter to stand under. You could however stay under cover and walk out to the stop when you see the bus coming. We just returned and used the bus all week, it is very ontime so make sure you follow the schedule. We found it very easy to use and we only once had a full bus. Have a great trip.

We just returned from our first stay at Bonnet Creek. I have to say we had a wonderful time and I think we will be returning. We even found ourselves discussing that next time we need to spend a little more time at the resort. We have stayed at several moderate and value Disney resorts as well as a two bedroom at Saratoga Springs and Royal Plaza previously. We booked with Ken Price through vacation upgrades and he and Denise were superb.

Here are the things we loved:
1. The space- With two kids it was wonderful. We felt as a couple and parents so much more like we were on vacation. We got to sleep in the same bed with no children and our kids slept like a dream in the other bedroom. We brought a baby monitor with so we could shut our door too. (our youngest just turned 2). We could get ready with privacy. We would switch off who was getting ready and the other stayed out with the kids in the family room. The bathrooms were large and the second bedroom was bigger than I was expecting.
2. The washer and dryer-I used it a ton and it did not feel like work. When we would return from the pool everyone would throw their towels and suits in the machine and I would start it. No rinsing out suits and hanging them all over our tiny hotel room.
3. A full sized fridge- snacks for the kids, milk for the kids and beer for the hubby, need I say more
4. Hallway--at Saratoga springs we entered our room from an outside corridor. I liked the secured building, interior halls, and elevator better. Every once in a while the hall smelled funny because of something someone cooked--never smelled it in our room.
5. Several Pool Options-if one was too busy or not our thing at the time there was a choice. We spent most our time outside building 5 and 6
6. The big table--we used it a lot for breakfast and for our sons legos and for his school work.
7. The resort was very pretty

Things that were not the greatest but minor and did not ruin our vacation
1. Shower head-did not like it, not major
2. I sometimes missed the Disney all the time-my husband did not
3. I would have like to have a food court or some more places to get food/snacks. Especially later at night. I am on vacation too, so I don't want to cook or fix a snack -sometimes I want a cupcake at 11:00pm 'cause I can. My husband did not miss it one single bit --maybe because he had to go after said cupcake on previous visits. The food we did eat at the pool bar was not very good but was edible, but then again a lot of what we had a Disney this time was not very good.
4. I would have liked to have a vacuum, I bet I could have requested one, but I did not.

A few other things people often ask about
We had no problem with the parking pass and check in was quick and easy. The hold on our card was $100 and pended while we were there and disappeared the day we checked out. When I go to the parking pass desk she asked if we had been there before and I said no and she got all excited and said oh do I have some surprises for you. I immediately said I am not interested in your surprises and she looked shocked and upset and said you don't like fireworks and surprises. I said I already know about them circled the lowest income on the form she handed me the pass and I left. I was never even invited to a presentation etc.... It all took about a minute but half of that was her looking at my liscense and looking at something in the computer.
We used the bus system all but the last day. It alway ran exactly on time-do not be late and expect the bus to still be sitting there. I liked this though it was predictable. The bus was only full once.
We found all the staff to be friendly and we also found the other familes and guests to be friendly and respectful of others. We requested a high chair and a pack n play both were delivered within moments of us getting to our room. I also requested some trash bags and detergent and those both came within moments. I did find that when calling the desk I did have to wait on hold most times. We had a wonderful time.
I would be happy to answer any specific questions as well.

Hello Bonnet Creek experts! I am trying to help a friend plan an Orlando vacation. Can you all tell me where I can get the best deal on getting them a room at WBC for 4 nights? I have seen it mentioned on here to rent from owners - how do I go about that? I checked Ebay but they only seem to be rentals for the immediate future. I am looking for April 2012. I remember a while back Vettechick had mentioned someone she used and trusted but it was a long time ago.

Any tips? Much appreciated!

Thanks so much for the details! Two quick questions for you (or anyone else who wants to chime in!

- I have an 8 year old son, 5 year old daughter, and 1 year old daughter. Which pools do you think they would enjoy the most? Any sense of which building we should request based on this (getting a 3BR and thinking of Building #6 since it's newest). I think the 4 year old is too small for the pirate slide (she's 45" tall) - she'll love the other slide and the lazy river. The 1 year old would like zero entry.

- How were the pack & play and high chair? Were they clean and in good shape? I'm not usually very particular about germs, but all the talk of bed bugs has made me a little nervous about using a hotel pack & play. Welcome your feedback on this one!

Thanks so much!

Only 4 days til our trip!
