I believe that there may only be ONE BC CL GV without a full balcony, so your chances are better than excellent. I was comfortable enough to remove my full balcony request from my reservation since I booked CL GV.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Thanks!! You guys rock!! Only one month and a day left!!
1/2 gallon fits much better in the fridge.

My ipad and shoot/point camera and money pouch and some other flat thing (it may have been my jewelry pouch) all fit in the safe. It's not very deep so the ipad will fit for sure but you can get a little creative and fit a few more things in as well as long as it's not thick.

Thanks for the info on the fridge and safe. At least know I know not to bother with the ice packs for the cooler, I will just get ice from the ice machine. Glad to know the iPad will fit, want to bring it for the car ride and kids, etc, but really don't want to carry it around the parks all day.

Okay so need some help. I sold DH on BC&YC for Sept and Oct (as long as a discount is offered) on the fact that the kids are going to LOVE Stormalong Bay and it will still be warm so we can really enjoy some time at the resort. Then we have trips planned for the first weekend in January (2nts/3days) and then again the first week of February (4nts/5days). DH asked me if we could stay somewhere cheap since it will be cold (for our standards) and we wont be using the pool that much. I begrudgingly agreed for the Jan trip and booked POR in a Royal Room. But for Feb I kept pushing to come back to BC&YC and DH kept saying he wanted to do something different. We compromised on the WL with bunk beds (my kids LOVE bunk beds). Notice I didn't agree to another moderate LOL! I get the fact that DH doesn't want to do the same things over and over and doesn't "want to throw money away", but how do I convince him to come back to BC&YC? I am hoping our stay there in Sept will be enough to convince him. We have stayed at the WL when the kids were really little (and I think it is the only deluxe DH has stayed at) and I remember thinking it was nice, but I wasn't wowed by it. Am I going to be disappointed with POR and WL after staying at the YC? I know I am asking a biased group, but that is why I am asking here

Step one: Chill some SCHLOGGY (not sloggy!! ) Beer.

Step two: Wait till you are actually at the BC to bring up this situation. Have DH drink copious amounts of Schloggy beer.

Step three: Book the next stay at the Yacht Club, technically it's 'different'.

~So there ya go.....

~NM

"Schloggy": a term reserved for thick, creamy German beers that beer drinkers can't get enough of, From the term schlag meaning whipped cream.

LOVE it! We stayed at Poly during our last trip and loved it, but I'm SO looking forward to BC and some relaxing resort and pool time next month! originally booked CBR, but didn't think it would live up to our "deluxe" standards...

NM, YOU ALWAYS CRACK ME UP One problem, DH doesnt like "Scholggy" beer, the ONLY beer he drinks is Corona. But I think you are right, just wait until we are there in September and go from there. Plus we will probably book a long weekend in April for DD's bday, and that will definitely be SAB weather

I of course had planned to do that, but it was nice that she was so responsive. The one I was REALLY worried about was the fifth-grade teacher, because I know fifth-grade is a pretty intense year for learning new things, and I hoped she wouldn't be too upset at us taking him out of school for a whole week (in addition to the occasional Friday off due to hockey tournaments!). Her response was short and sweet: "Thanks for the heads up...we'll make it work!"

This made my day! I know it will be a challenge when the time comes, but it made me feel very good to know that the teachers are so willing to accommodate this special trip!
That is awesome news! Definitely one less thing to stress about!!! Always nice to know you have teachers that will work with you instead of against you!

I LOVE it when a plan comes together!! I booked DD and FDSIL's airfare to Cancun over the weekend.... They are flying RT from MCO to CUN... this is going to require a RT flight from DFW to MCO and one night at the Hyatt (booked) before the flight to Cancun. What all of this means is the airfare part of the wedding is booked almost!! Waiting on SW fares for April 2013 to be released. I still have to add the dinning and wine plan to the reservation and book the tours and dinning!! We are at 255 days until the wedding and 260 days until the Disneymoon which means.... 80 days until dinning reservation time!!! I'm getting there!!! This is going to be the best time for them!!!

Ok thanks for the listen!! I like to write it out so I know what i have left to do!!!
