I will be there next week! Not a single thing packed but how long does it REALLY take? In prior years I packed too early and forgo what I packed!

A long time YC CL'er this is our first stay at BC CL. Though I will be honest I do check regularly to see it there was a yc cl gv cancellation!!!!

All my agonizing over the months comes down to the final week but with DD13 cramming for finals and end off year party prep stuff, disney isn't high on the list right now. Imagine that......

We will be at the BCV July 20-22 and then BWV 22-30.
We are new to the DVC and this will be our first visit !!!!!!!

Our DD's (19/16) have no idea. They think we are staying at the All Star's.
Epcot is our favorite park and the girls love walking around the world everynight ... I can not wait to have them "walk home" that first night !!!

Any helpfull hints about staying at either of these DVC's resorts would be GREAT !!!
Looking at all the wonderful photos and though all the information here on the disboards is getting me soooooooo excited ... Thanks !!!!!!

I also use the Lines app by Touring Plans....I think the subscription fee is well worth it, plus you have access to their full crowd calendar predictions online. You can also access their recommended touring plans and dining info/menus both online and on the app. We've used Lines on 3 trips and have found their wait time to be pretty accurate and I always enjoy entering in my own wait time info as well!

I also have the Undercover Tourist free one and Disney Mobile Magic, which only works when you're in the parks, but I rely on Lines!

Only three more days to go!! I really need to start packing, but it so much more fun to be reading about Disney than gathering up clothes and toiletries...

Reading this thread everyday has inspired Dh and I to turn out back patio into a little oasis here in WNY. We went shopping and came home with a patio conversation set, fireplace, tiki torches, outdoor accent area rug, string lights and a few big tropical looking plants! It is 88 degrees and I am chilling on the chase lounge imaging that I am in the world!

The only thing that remains to be done is the addition of a bar to serve up tropical drinks

Regarding online check-in and requests- I think they may have recently updated these features. I read on another thread that most resorts now have their popular requests available for selection when you do online check-in. When I checked in for BC the other day (Woohoo! ), my options for requests were full balcony, small balcony, ground floor, or near transportation.

Hmmm, that's good to know. When I made my reservation by phone 6 months ago, I requested a full balcony and was intending on NOT doing online check-in. However, we won't arrive until around 7:00 pm-ish, and I started thinking that online check-in might actually be a good thing in my case before they give out all of the GV full balcony rooms for the day. If you do actually have an option re: balcony requests on the online check-in (even though I did mention that already on the phone), maybe I should do that after all.

I am looking for a hotel for one day pre cruise and one day post cruise. We arrive in the afternoon and leave early am to go home. Is this the place to stay? Looking for hotel with activities so I dont have to buy passes as a one day is too much money. Is there enough to entertain two teens? Is a standard room good enough? Any advice would be welcome. Ps in the past we stayed at value (4 different ones), BLT (1), WL (almost every visit), OKW (1). Over the value, looking for more.

Can anyone tell me if the BC room safes are big enough for 2 Ipads? Also, are they the set-your-combination type, or are they keyed? Thanks!

I have a question about about the toiletries. What sorts of things do they provide? I thought I read that it's H2O products, which I have to admit, I know nothing about, but they seem to be a favorite of the regulars, so I'm thinking that I shouldn't pack what will be provided...so what exactly is in the room/bathroom?

I think it's safe to assume shampoo and condintioner. But what about things like lotion? What else is there?

Thanks to Disney, I have been hooked on the H2O products for years! Love them ! Here is their website:

http://www.h2oplus.com/ Ulta also carries H2O products.

My understanding is some of the resorts are changing the specific H2O line, but the deluxe resorts with exception of GF provided the Aquatics line (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, soap, lotion). The GF provided the Spa line - love the Spa line Sea Salt Hydrating body butter especially. If you are staying CL - Solar Relief Gel, mouthwash also provided. Think that is all.
