NinjaMom: so sorry for your struggles.y prayers are with you.

My father smoked for over 50 years. He quit cold turkey one day shortly after my son was born prematurely when my brother made a comment about him smoking around the baby. We were so proud of him! He was diagnosed with lung cancer 22 years after he stopped smoking. He passed away 5 months and 28 days after being diagnosed. It was the hardest thing my family has had to endure.

I can only think that at least when he stopped we got all those extra years with him that maybe we wouldn't have had if he had not stopped when he did.

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!
My niece and sister went on the early morning fishing excursion at YC. They enjoyed it but I think taking one on Seven Seas Lagoon would have been better or maybe Bay Lake because they could only go between the marina and HS. They did like it though and they enjoyed the "professionals" that took them out.

Has anyone noticed this type of thing on the room menu recently?

Thanks
Yes, there are several items you can order. Chocolate Mickey, strawberries, cookies and milk, cake, chocolate box with truffles, snacks and of course anything on the room service menu. I even think fresh fruit is available.

Thanks for sharing your review. Sorry to hear about your disappointing experiences at the Beach Club. We have been hearing the reports about the washing machines- I hope that has been corrected.

Sounds like your room is definitely in need of some TLC. I know the Yacht and Beach Club rooms were refurbed right before my first trip there in 2009. Anyone know how often Disney "refreshes" their resort rooms?

Sorry your stay was less than magical britterbell. I have read on the Dis and other boards and heard on several podcast that internet reception was less than desirable in most resorts. Ours worked fine during our June trip. Sounds like a hit or miss. Not sure if it's location or useage.

Now far as banged up furniture that just reinforces the need for construction and room upgrades. Sounds like you got a really bad room. I know folks always say you can just change rooms but really you shouldn't have to. I do hope you reported the problems while there. No one paying the $$$$$$ for a deluxe should have a broken sink or a leak.

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.
Reports are that you can refill your mug at A&C until noon. According to someone who was there recently, once it opens as a bar, that is no longer an option.

If someone is at the YC now, or going soon, could you check on the breakfast situation, please. I don't think they have anything cooked, like egg sandwiches or french toast sticks, I think it is mainly muffins, fruit and other Continental fare*, most likely available for a "Snack credit" rather than a "Counter Service" credit.

Here is something I found in my notes, from pixarmom: "The bakery case was small and contained five different items: two kinds of muffins, bagels, croissants and cinnamon rolls. They also had coffee, cream cheese, jams and cereals. I may be missing a few items, but it was small".

Sorry about that, Cindy! I had a technically challenged day, too. My internet connection went down around 10 am and wasn't restored until my DH swapped out a dying router for one on its last legs. New one one the way!

Yes, I did get your message. THANKS!!! I don't know if Penny saw it, so I will text her the info.

I do have a question I hope someone can help me with: I am having knee trouble and will need to minimize my walking. What would the best location to request for closeness to SAB entrance with the construction happening then? Will that be close to the lobby as well as the CL lounge? We will be staying YC CL. Thanks!
I presume the noodles are already spoken for during our dates?


I'll add you to the list!



The Noodles are reserved for Dec 15 and 16, but I have added you to the list for Dec 13-14 and 15 if you can return them in the morning.

May the Weather Be Ever in Your Favor!

I have never stayed at the YC- I know the elevator in the BC CL is consistent with a request of "Close to lobby/SAB". Not sure if that is the case at the YC.

See everyone there!




I'll add you to the list.

I just did a search on the resorts board- Fishing Excursions

Here are a couple of reviews:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2934038

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2894623

If you go to all ears there are some short reviews there.

You may want to try your own search or see what hits you get on the Theme Park boards.

Hope that helps!

Took a quick look at the In Room Dining Menu I have posted on Page 1 (From all ears), didn't see anything there about the use of Dining Plan credits for any of the items.

Here is the description of the Family Breakfast, but no info on dining credits.

Family Style Breakfast - Serves 4 - Mickey Waffles, Pancakes, Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, mixed fruit, orange juice and coffee or tea $54.99

The price was still $54.99 in August 2011.

You can customize your uploads so they all upload at the same size. I think the default is full size. I have all my uploads the pictures in a large size:

On the page where you get the green button that says

"Select Photos and Videos"

In the top right corner there are very small blue letters that say


"Customize your upload options"


When you click on the link you get a box that says

"Choose a setting for websized copies of your photos to link and share"

I use the LARGE setting (640x480)

You just need to do this once, not every time you upload.

Has anybody stayed in any type of room with a king bed (regular or murphy)?
Anybody?

You can ignore MY previous post- I needed to repost this so I could link it to the "How Do I" section of the FAQ. The original post was in a thread that got locked, so I couldn't make the correction to the info there.

Looks like we're there about the same time. We arrive in 52 days. We're staying at YC.
