Which resort did you/will you book? BC or YC? or are you still deciding?

The answers to your questions are "maybe" and "yes". The pools are heated. The problem is not the temp of the water, it is the temp of the air once you get out. If you have some warm days, which are very possible, you may find yourself swimming.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the FAQ on Page 1 (Post 12), you may want to read through that. There is some info about room requests. What is important to you? Do you want to be close to the lobby/pool/bus stops? Closer to EPCOT? Do you want to request a full balcony (about 50% of the rooms have these). Do you want to request a daybed?

I think there are GV rooms that face EPCOT- not sure if you can see some of the structures like Spaceship Earth, The Land or the Eiffel Tower or the high fireworks from Illuminations from those rooms or not. I know some rooms do overlook those landmarks, but I don't which category they are (standard or garden view)
Thanks so much! I would like to be closer to Epcot but honestly do not care too much. I will be in Disney World! I am happy anywhere when I am there. Just hope it is warm enough for kids to enjoy the pool at least once or twice. If it is cold they will just have to run for the room when they get out.
Thanks again!

On 8/20 - all of the washers and dryers were working - this was reported by my husband. I refuse to do laundry on vacation, my husband usually does.

He was not particularly thrilled with the laundry experience he had. He went around 11:00 pm to do laundry and walked into a room (small) full of people. All of the washers and dryers were full. He planned on trying to wait for a machine. He left after watching a woman throwing a full-out tantrum over the full machines, and yelling at anyone within earshot that someone should not be allowed to use 2 washers.

He went back the next morning (around 5 am - he's an early riser) and did his laundry without incident.

He said the laundry facilities were a mess - this is the fault of guests, not housekeeping.

Moral of the story - it is MUCH easier to do your laundry early in the day vs. late in the day.

I had the same thing happen doing laundry.

I was up at 4:30 and down to an empty laundry at 5:00. Around 5:30 a man came wanting to do laundry. I told him my own laundry would be done in about 15 minutes. He went on a tirade about how rude I was to use all three (one wasn't working) washers. I told him if he had come down as early as I had he would have had his pick of washers. I couldn't believe he had a fit over waiting 15 minutes!

I brought two suction cup hooks and they fell... Constantly. I had wiped and tried cleaning both the cups and the wall and they still fell. . So... I ended up just hanging them off the little knob thing that has the clothes line in it....

Thank you both for the posting about the laundry area. I am sorry you both had much less then stellar experiences due to other guests. Goodness some people are really full of themselves aren't they! Life is too short to get that upset over something so small.

Do I need quarters for the washer and dryer? How much does it cost to do a load of laundry? Thank you so much for help.

Thanks for posting the pic of the arcade menu. I'm happy to see that they have a few options beyond burgers and hot dogs. Seems like better variety than HH.

Any other word on food choices around the pool? Also, does anyone know if you can order room service to deliver at the pool?

All this HH rehab is also making me wonder if they are increasing the food offerings at HH when the rehab is finished. I'll bet they are. I've read that this is a major rehab so maybe all that wishing for better CS options at the YC/BC is finally going to come true.

So this leads me to my next question. What would YOU like to see on the menu at HH when the rehab is finished?

I'd like to see tuna fish, chicken salad and other cold sandwich options like lunch meat subs. Another great addition would be if you could request specific types of bread and rolls, like rye bread or onion rolls. Salads would also be good. I can't see soup being an option but frozen Yogurt would be AWESOME! Even better with that would be a topping selection like granola, fruit or chocolate chips (the mini ones should do it!) I'd also love to see fresh fruit salad offered. Fresh fruit after a swim is divine!

So what do y'all want to see? Let's hear it!

NM Update: My Mom is in the ICU with a blood clot on the lung, She just had two units of blood on Friday and her counts are low so something is up with that as well. I spent 6 hours at the house with her yesterday and then that night she tanked. I just really don't know what to say at this point. Her suffering is unreal. She smoked for years and I was so proud of her when after a mighty struggle she was finally able to give it up. After trying a million things, the one that really worked for her was a medication called Chantix. I consider that a miracle drug because it broke the addiction. If you are smoking and you are ready to quit please consider seeing your doctor and asking for help. There are things out there that can really help. I know how hard it is to quit because I watched my mom try for years so no judgement here. I just have love and encouragement to offer to those that want to try.

It looks like it on the map. Any suggestions for best area to request?
Thanks for the help. We are so excited for our trip.

We were there this February (4-11) and we did swim 2 days. It was a little chilly by Florida standards but by Chicago standards and with snow waiting for us at home, we put on our suits and enjoyed! The pools were not very crowded (we were at Kidani) so I am guessing not many people agreed with us. LOL!

NM - I do remember that her and her family tried it out ! Thanks for refreshing my memory I tend to be forgetful

The only problem with this test is that there are 5 of us going ( my parents are joining us) and the FP are only for my family of 3. I am sure my parents won't mind sitting and resting. The only one that will be a problem is the FP for the parade, but I am sure we can figure something out

My husband, unlike me (whom I would double-check my info with), at this late hour, is sound asleep ...

I believe there is a change machine in the laundry room. I would bet the higher quantity of smaller bills you bring with you, the better off you are.

From what I found out on the boards, the washers are front-load. I believe there are vending machines in the laundry room. But, we brought with us multiple laundry detergent pods I received over the past year - all free samples.
