In Room Amenities?

When we have stayed at other resorts they have offered this on their room service menu. I'm thinking of ordering a cake to be delivered to our room (have been researching on the cake thread ) but then thought I might prefer to order a chocolate character or tuxedo strawberries. Has anyone noticed this type of thing on the room menu recently?

Thanks

Just wanted to warn by BC/YC friends that I have an email virus so DON'T open any emails from me until I give you the all clear. Just what I needed.

Disney done for another year

Just returned from th BC on 9/2 and had a wonderful time. However, my family and I were a little disappointed with BC. Very, very poor Internet access in rooms, as well as the lobby so be prepared. Rooms are starting to get worn down. We had a cracked sink, a banged up door, a leak on the floor from who knows where and a broken closet door. We loved how close Epcot was and the pool was great. Hurricaine Hanna closed 1 day after we got there and we had no information on this happening. Half of the washing machines were broken, as well as the change machine. I'm glad we experienced the hotel, but we enjoyed the Animal Kingdom Lodge and Poly more.

Continuing to enjoy my planning obsession, 55 days to go....

Can anyone confirm that refillable mugs can be replenished at Ale and Compass? A response from mom's panel posted today said that you could not.

Also can anyone clarify which, and how many, items would constitute a counter service credit breakfast here? I'd like to work out if this is a good option for our early starts.

Has HH been all boarded up? Did you suffer any construction noise?

I'm beginning to worry, we were staying at the GF but moved due to the pool and Gasperilla closure. I've spent the last few months at home with major construction going on (half the roof removed, no kitchen etc) so this is going to be a chill trip. Don't fancy sitting by the pool looking and hearing what I could get at home

I'm also a weight trainer, have they moved the weight machines to the Solarium and free weights. I've seen pics of the Cardio stuff but no sign of weights.

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.
Thoughts and prayers continue for your mom you and your family.

Chantix is a very good drug to help with the stop smoking... My husband smoked for over 40 years and recently quit. The only problem is he still craves the cigs.. so I bought him an electronic cig with zero nicotine to help him (per his doctor). Most times I will see him just holding the cig. I call it his crutch! Hard habit to stop thats for sure.

Hope all had a great start to the new school year! If you are soon to be at Disney or are there now have a great time!!

I will be at ASSPorts next Saturday, and YC next Sunday! Can't wait!

Ninja Mom, I am sorry to hear about your mom. I am 4 1/2 years quit now from cigs and it wasn't easy but was worth it. I'm sorry she and her family have to go through something so terrible now. It's a good reminder to me, to never start smoking again. I hope you can still find happy memories together today to hold on to forever.

NM---continuing to send prayers your way!

Dee---Did you get my PM? I can't tell if it was sent or not. Today has been a technically challenged day for me.

Has anyone ever taken one of the fishing excursions from the YC marina? DH is thinking about booking one during our trip. 16 days to go!

Yes HH is boarded up. Just finished with the walls when we left so I am not sure on the noise. They moved all the exercise equipment into the solarium. Good luck with your trip.
