If you don't have any special requests, then I don't think it matters if you do the online or regular check in. I'm guessing it won't be all that busy at 6 PM, but what do I know?

Have a fantastic trip!
If you do have special requests, should you not do on line check in?

Hey Steph....Fellow 60D/Ipad owner here. I bought an iPad Digital Camera Connection Kit from Best Buy that allows you to plug your card straight into iPad and download direct. It's @ $30. But I shoot in JPEG and never tried it in RAW. May have storage issues depending on storage capacity.

Good luck and let us see your pic's!

I have a Nixon L110. I bought just what MikeyT purchased. I used it once with the SD card adapter, but not the USB one. I uploaded the pictures to the iPad then used the photobucket app to put them on Facebook. It worked great, nice and easy for this tech challenged girl . Hopefully I will have time to post some pics while we are there.

Hi everyone,

I don't post often on this thread but I really enjoy reading it. Something absolutely amazing happened yesterday that I just have to share and I knew you guys would understand. Mickey Mouse came to our county high school to announce that the band has been invited to march in the Very Merry Christmas Parade!!! I am so excited and I don't even have a student at the school. I know I'm nuts!!

Thanks Teena!

Even with a standard view room, if you want a daybed, make sure you have that request on your reservation unless there are five in your party. If you have five in your party, that is self explanatory and you don't need to request a daybed. However, if you have four in your party and want a daybed, you need to have that request on your reservation. And like I said before, no requests are guaranteed.

Dee is correct as far as the BC, there is only one garden view CL room there with a daybed.
Thanks so much for your recommendation Teena! I called this morning and upgraded from a YC SV CL room to a YC GV CL room with a request for a daybed since DS 5 suffers night terrors and often sleeps restlessly so for he and DD11 to share a bed for 7 nights might be difficult. I contemplated the water view but have so much booked at night for celebrations that I don't think it's worth the extra $. Surprising DH with an illuminations cruise for his birthday - giving the Pirates Wishes Cruise to DS as a Christmas gift, one evening DH is scuba diving the Epcot Nemo tank and DD is snorkeling the Tank...so lots of fun things going on that I don't think well be in the room that much.
I just keep wondering if we should have gone BC over YC - more posters seem to be heading to BC....hmm, well... Ill keep reading along...

4 nights at BC in November!

Hi All,

My wife and I will be staying at the Beach Club for 4 nights, Nov.6-10.
We have a club level lagoon view room. ( first time for that view...)
Do all the club level rooms on 5th floor have full balconies?
Should I request a room close to lounge?
We hope to catch the end of the Food and Wine festival. Love walking to Epcot and DS!
The only downside is that Typhoon lagoon will be closed....We love the wave pool.

Read this entire great thread! Thanks all for all the inside info...nothing compares to it!

I just counted the oct. be our guest listings 17 @ yc, 18 @ bc, 16 @ bcv. The bcv people can't choose the yc really so it seems a fairly even split. I'm @ the yc in a couple of months and personally prefer it to the hustle and bustle of the bc's lobby but to each his own. Maybe the bc types are more like the resort - more gregarious than us yc types.And of course all of us yacht clubbies get full balconies - no Juliet's for us.

Hi everyone,

I haven't posted here before, but do read a lot of it since BCV is our home resort and our favorite.

I just read on the allears weekly newsletter that the Solarium is currently being used as a makeshift gym since Ship Shape is getting refurbished. Does anyone know how long that is supposed to last? My DH and I are renewing our vows in November and wanted to do our first look in the Solarium. I have a backup plan, but wanted to check.

Thanks in advance!

With special requests it's easier to just check in at the desk. If you do online and have problems you're going to have to go through the checkin line to get them fixed anyway.

I'm definitely a full balcony type DH says I obsess over this vacation every year. Funny thing is we have a stay coming up Nov 2-5 at AoA and I am not even obsessing over that one - I am totally obsessing about this one! We are staying at AoA Nemo suites for DS's 5th Birthday and I so want to upgrade that stay to the YC too!! Wondering if I will love the YC so much that this will now replace our annual Poly visit from here on out? We enjoy swimming in January and don't mind a little chill getting out of the pool - it appears SAB is the best pool around!

We booked with AAA during Disney month too. I don't remember a GC being mentioned but I purposely booked then because I knew they usually had special gifts. I'll be thrilled if we get a GC.
