We will be at the BCV in just over two weeks! In a 1 BR. Our first time in the villas. We've stayed in the hotel before. We just LOVE it and it's proximity to all things Food & Wine Festival. Friday, Sept. 28 - Friday, Oct. 5.

Can't wait!

Funny story

So today we get back from HS, my DH takes a nap, my DD lays on the bed playing with her kindle, & I took a bath. We are staying a suite at BC. I come out of the bathroom in just my undies & start blow drying my hair. I hear a noise, look over my shoulder & see a male BC CM leaving our room. I look at my daughter & ask her if she saw him & if she knew he was in the room. She said yes she saw him leave but no she didn't see him enter. (I'm sure he DID knock, but no one heard him) Both DD and I burst out laughing All I can say is at least I had undies on! Too funny! Poor guy!!

Is that what the CM was doing?

We ate at Captain's Grille a few times during our stay and one morning at breakfast DD started going on about the "ship moving". Well I didnt have a clue what she was on about because I had my back to said "ship". Finally I got up and discovered that there was in fact a picture on the wall of Captains Grille with moving ships. DH couldnt believe that after all the hours I had spent on this thread that I hadnt read anything about it!

OK, that is seriously cool!!! I didn't know anything about this, so thank you so much for sharing and including pictures.

Now, I expect this kind of thing at Hogwarts, but at Captain's Grille????

Ok. Let's try it this way. Has anyone had a ground floor room that did NOT have a patio?

I think there are usually sand toys around SAB where folks have left them but don't think they are provided by Y&BC. Anyone?

Everytime we have been at SAB there have always been toys in the sand area. I think it is where other guests leave them and not BC/YC toys.

Can anyone comment on the current coffee pot situation at YC? Do they have the "pod" coffee pots? If so, is there a certain type of pod?
I obviously am very concerned about my coffee.

TIA

[QUOTE="natebenma"]

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!



Thank you! I just reached out to my fellow noodlers. I am thrilled you could accommodate at the last minute, as I remembered that my mom loves floating on a noodle in The pool!

Hi all,

I had every intention of doing a day-by-day account of our first trip staying at the BC CL. Unfortunately, we had too much fun and, by the time I returned to our room, the only thing I had on my mind was sleep. And, in the three weeks since we returned, it has been non-stop with school, fall baseball, dance, etc.

To keep it short and sweet: we absolutely loved the BC and the perks associated with staying on the CL. We have become converts to the beauty and location of the Epcot resorts! In fact, we loved it so much that, not only have we lost interest in staying on the monorail loop, but just yesterday we already booked next our next trip. This time, however, we're going to visit the YC CL in effort to experience the dark side (or at least the side with the darker wood ). We'll be hopping down for a short trip (Jan 17-22) for DD's 10th birthday. Needless to say, we can't wait! Plus we hope it's at least warm enough to be able to again jump in SAB.

The only bad part about our trip is that we were unable to meet Teena. After reading all of the posts on the old thread, I felt as if I had knew her and, at very least, wanted to introduce myself and say hi. At one point (I believe it was Sat Aug 18th) I saw her in the lobby when I was running back to the room for my 2ndary battery for my camera. Unfortunately she was greeting other guests, so I didn't want to interrupt, and, by the time I came downstairs, she must have off doing other things. So, when we return January, meeting Teena is on the top of our must do list!

Let the countdown begin!!!!!!!!!

Hey Pink Girl! How many of those sunken treasures/ grey goose slushies does it take before you start to see the ships move?

New to this thread.

We are going Dec 7 thru Dec 15. We have stayed the last 2 years at BC. I am so upset that HH will not be opened. They have some nice nonalcoholic drinks that we like to share while we are at the pool and my kids sometimes get lunch there.

Someone tell me not to switch resorts just because HH is closed! I feel like there is no where to get food now at the resort. My kids are 5 and 11 and they don't like the Marketplace sandwiches.
