Bookgirl, BC during F & W looks EXPENSIVE! Hope you get a discount...

Today I am doing laundry and cleaning the house. Tomorrow I have to work for a couple of hours and then I will be packing. And cleaning and doing more laundry. Monday night I will be lying awake since we have to be at the airport around 4:30 am for our 6 am flight.

Tuesday at 3 I will be at the BC! That's a rhyme I like...

WOW! We're booked at YC for F&W and I've received several PIN codes since booking. And I know that we're not paying $500 a night for gardenview. Glad I booked early and got a good PIN.

Just got back on Friday night after 8 wonderful nights at BC. We were upgraded to CL!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!

The lounge was GREAT & saved us a lot which was a wonderful surprise. The pool was great. Spent at least a few hours there in the afternoons most days.
All the CM's were great.

Teena it was wonderful seeing you again. You are one special lady. I am glad you had a great time on your cruise. You deserve it.

The boys now do NOT want to stay anywhere except the BC. I had a feeling that would be the case.

There were just a few issues we had. I had to ask for more shampoo & shower gel. We were just about out & I asked for some & they said they usually do not replace it until they see that we were completely empty. Really???? They did say they would give us some & I asked to have it delivered to the room as we were going to the parks. Got back & nothing. They may have forgotten the room #. They did give us more the next day.

Also went to do laundry one day & out of 4 washing machines only 1 was working. I had planned to use 3 of them. Luckily I had planned my afternoon by the pool because it took a few hours.

Also one of the hot tubs was not working after a few days after arriving. Some were sitting in there without the jets going but I used the other one. They were not too crowded which was good.

Overall we had an absolute wonderful time & I wish I was back there.

Forgot to mention-Amy left the noodles with me (5 of them) & I left them with Bell Services. I told them it was the "noodle family".

Thank you so much for the update on the status of the noodle family and for sharing the info about your trip. Glad you had a great time! Your boys have excellent taste!

Unfortunately we didn't get to use the noodles much as we would have liked since our three days at the BC were the three cool & rainy days last week. But we really enjoyed the resort & loved staying Club Level. I only wish we had met Teena. We checked out on Sunday (4/22). We came back from Epcot & headed through the lobby to our car and saw Teena. She was busy talking with someone. I didn't want to interrupt & my gang was antsy to get going. Hopefully another time...

It was great to finally meet Doreen & family. We live less than 30 minutes apart but we finally met in person at the BC!

Just catching up on the thread after a busy weekend! Hello and welcome to the new posters and thanks to disneyfan and DisMomAmy for the reports!

Just had to report some very exciting news! My best friend and her family were checking in at BWI yesterday. They booked a deluxe there to accomodate their family of six. During check-in, they were upgraded to a 2-bedroom suite at BC! Teena, I told them to look for you in the lobby (and sent you a separate message about them yesterday.)

Hi Pas! Always happy to see you here!

We're just now starting to talk about a major trip for our extended family next summer. The main focus will be my then 3 year old niece. Planning is just beginning, hence back to the disboards.

I can't believe I won't make the 3rd annual Dis meet this summer. I've been to #1 and #2. Please know that I'll be there in spirit.

I'll be lurking from this point on. Glad to see the old gang again!!
Hello YC FAN!!! Great to see you again! You may not remember, but you inspired our pirate celebration at BWI (split between BWI/cruise/BC) last August. Thanks to your advice and Robyn's, we were able to put together a very customized celebration and our boys LOVED it! Hope all is well, and happy to hear that you have another trip in the works.

Seriously you are such a wealth of information for the YC, please don't just lurk. I know lots of posters who are staying at YC for the first time would benefit tremendously from your YC knowledge!

Great to see you posting again - hope all is well with your family!
Robyn, I really wish I could make it in person this year! I actually thought it might be possible, but then I received a theater scheduled our oldest son and July 22 is the big summer performance weekend. So I think my best hope is to appear in flat form with Dee again. Of course, Dee is single-handedly responsible for my flat form, so I hope she's up for sending us again!

We probably ate breakfast together and didn't even know it!! I absolutely loved staying CL. How awesome that you got updgraded!

We had new bottles of shampoo every day, so I'm not sure that they have the policy that it has to be empty before they replace it. Seems odd!

Glad to hear you had a great time!

Congratulations on the upgrade, that is a fantastic bit of pixie dust.

We loved YC CL on our trip in March.

I've finally managed to post another installment in my TR for those who are interested.

Question for anyone who has been at the BC recently. I believe I read awhile back that the butterfly topiary near the BC back entrance was gone (perhaps when the siding work was done). Was that true? Did it disappear? Is it back?

Inquiring minds want to know.

@ Doreen and Amy- if you guys ever do plan a local meet, let me know. I'd love to join you and talk Disney/BC/YC all through lunch at the Olive Garden.

We actually had the same issue -- no one replacing shampoo and conditioner. I just asked housekeeping for some extras when I saw them with their carts in the hallways, and walked away with a handful, so for us it was easily taken care of. But that was because we were there during the afternoon.

We had the same magical upgrade to CL. Just an incredible experience

Gosh! At the rate we are paying I sure hope our Mousekeeper gives us enough shampoo and conditioner! It's never been a problem in the past...

The butterfly topiary is gone.

I would love to have a local meet sometime. Olive Garden is my favorite!!

for the upgrade. We probably would never be able to experience it other than the upgrade. So thankful!!

That is exactly what I was thinking when they told me they do not just replace them. We stayed there in 2010 & every day they replenished it. It is not like we were packing it away every day. I used my own shampoo anyway but DH & DS were using the shampoo & I used the shower gel every day.
