EXCELLENT question!

Does anyone have any opinions?
DH and I have just discussed this and think this is do-able. There was no rope stopping entry to the "lower" end of World Showcase. I would think the CMs (who we never encountered as we never headed that way) would be at the bridge stopping people heading over to France.

Sure. They can't very well say to all the people staying at the Epcot resorts that you have to stay in Epcot until 11 AM. And there are people not staying at Epcot resorts that come in at the front of Epcot, ride one ride and walk over to get the boat to Hollywood Studios.

OK thanks!

As I thought more about it, I figured that was probably the case- so guests of the EPCOT resorts could enter through the Gateway, pick up a FP to Soarin' then return back to the resort, etc...

Please for the health of others...only smoke in the designated areas.
I can't imagine this only happens at the BC? It is very unfortunate that people do not respect others around them and not use the designated areas.

That's what we're here for KJay. You don't know how many times we've seen people panic before their trip only to end up like you. Bliss. So glad you were able to enjoy with so much going on in your life and at the resort.

Thanks for the detailed trip report. I too love those early mornings as a resort comes to life. And reading your report makes me miss it just a little bit more.

We are getting super excited!!
Any word when Hurricane Hanna would re-open?
Thanks for clarifying your dates. I'll add you to the Noodle Swap list.

No word yet on the HH grand reopening, but there should be more news as your vacation gets closer.

I am finding all sorts of helpful information on this thread. I booked the Illuminations Cruise for my husbands birthday on the 30th. It will be myself, DH, DD(11), and DS(5). Hoping we love the YC as much as the Poly!
Thanks for this thread.

to the DIS and to this thread!

Glad you are checking out the Yacht Club and we hope you love it, too!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list and Noodle Swap.

This time of the year, has anyone at YC ever not had that request met?

On another random note, years ago when we stayed AK CL they would hand out complimentary ponchos on rainy days. Is this still the case in the lounge?

Thanks and have a magical day.


I'll put you on as a late entry to the Guest list.



Have a great trip!

Not sure about the ponchos, but if you check while you are there, please report back to let us know what you discover.

Thanks!

Last night we went to MNSSHP, it was great! The weather was perfect & it wasn't crowded at all. We ate at Tony's in MK, I was nervous after reading so many negative reviews but we liked it. My DH had spagetti & meatballs, I had the mixed greens & our DH had the cheese pizza. And while eating she loss her tooth! Oh & we never waited for a bus either way. As for the hot water issue we've been having, it was warmer. Could still run a full tub on just hot water not really be hot, but it's better than it was, at least we're weren't shivering like before. Today we're off to HS for another day of Disney fun!

Confused on patios?

I just saw on all ears that only some ground floor rooms have patios - is that true? Also if you have a standard view on the ground floor are you sitting in a public area? Thanks! Oh, also are there sand toys at storm along bay?

We have stayed at Mods and deluxe resorts and have only encountered that many smokers outside the designated areas at the BC.

Thanks, Teena. I contacted guest services and they called yesterday. They will be addressing the problem with resort management. They also agreed that it is a health concern for other guests and that it needs to be enforced.

I hope you are feeling better!

Thanks!! Another CT today but right this moment things have simmered down and I feel pretty good.

And thanks for contacting guest services. The management can't fix it if they don't know what is happening and unfortunately they can't be everywhere every second of the day. This past Sunday and Monday at work I had numerous guests ask me where the nearest designated smoking area was and I walked them to it. I also thanked them sincerely for asking!!!

I run into the problem all the time at the parks and it seems for me the worst is Magic Kingdom and it drives me crazy!

Yes, there is a small gap. birmantaz is scheduled to return the noodles on 9/20 and LJD2143 is scheduled to pick them up on 9/22.

I have put you on the list for 9/20-9/22, so you may want to PM those two to coordinate the times the noodles will be available, or even arrange a direct swap if the timing is right.


Oh, and I added you to the Be Our Guest list, too!

I added you to the Noodle Swap for next year, assuming it is still happening. I am honestly amazed that we have been able to keep this going for so long already, but, fingers crossed...

I don't know the answer about the patios, hopefully someone has the info. I wonder if there are any first floor SV rooms- since these rooms normally look out onto a parking lot (or roof, which would not apply here), I don't think I would enjoy a room like that.

I also don't have an answer to your other question (aren't you glad I posted)- My understanding is that there are usually pails and shovels lying around SAB since the Hurricane Hanna's meals kids meals come in these and when families are done, they leave them behind. BUT with HH closed, I haven't seen confirmation yet that kids meals still come with the pail.

Could someone who is there now, or soon, check to see

1) Are there still sand toys lying about
2) Do the kids meals at the replacement stations come with a pail/shovel or not

Thanks!
