babyberger, I enjoyed your review. Sounds like a great short stay. Lucky you to live so close!

Teena, hope you have a marvelous cruise. We arrived home this week from a 5 night cruise on the Magic. Fantastic trip and I do love the size of the Wonder and Magic. Still I do hope to try the Fantasy or Dream one of these days.

Melissa, thanks so much for the report! Our boys said it was hard to leave the Wonder last month, but just a little bit easier knowing we'll be back at WDW in October. It's great to be able to keep away the tears with reminders of the next trip!

Missyrose, I remember that we are arriving on your BC departure day - have a great trip!

Teena, have a WONDERFUL time! Funny that it was just two years ago that you were encouraging us to try a Disney cruise and now we've been on two! Honestly, having been on both the Dream and the Wonder, I think I'll always be a "Wonder girl." I just love love love that ship, the CMs, and our beautiful room. But we had a great time on the Dream too and I bet you'll have a great trip on the Fantasy!

We are here! Arrived yesterday morning. Room wasn't ready so we went to AK for awhile, came back about 2:15, room still not ready..no water due to valve issue. Family was tired and cranky so we hung out in the lounge until it was ready. DH and DS4 both had naps which helped some.

Captains Grille for dinner, which was excellent. Our waiter was Alfredo and he was fantastic.

Have probably seen at least 4 families from our flight staying here at BC including lady who sat in front of DH who is also staying CL.

Heading to EP today....DS4 wanted to go last night but it was pouring. Soarin up first for him!

Thanks, Robyn. We did. Great service and really good food. Smooth seas and just a lovely time. Missed our DS1, his wife and our DD. It was a very relaxing trip. It was the first time to NYC for DS2 and me so that was fun, too.

I hear you about the international charges. Are you doing the Eastern? My other two cruises were both that itinerary. Love it because of the 3 sea days. Wish I was going!

Small world indeed. Glad you're off to a great start other than water issues. Have fun in Epcot today.

Love those bunnies out by the Gazebo, we usually saw 4 on a night. On our wedding day, we were trying to step around the bunny poo when we were cutting the cake and have the champagne toast!
That is too funny about the bunny poo One afternoon we saw 7 bunnies out there so I can only imagine what they leave behind

Sometimes I wish we didnt live so close so that we would take a "real" vacation to Disney, but I will take the long weekend trips for sure

The location and view was really perfect! DH has no interest in BC so it looks like we will be sticking with the "dark side" seems to fit us better

They did quickly get over it once we got home and right back into the swing of reality, but I do think having another trip (well trips) planned definitely helps to ease the pain

So it's been a week since our stay at the BC. And although I truly loved the resort and our room, with 2 kids, I think we'll stick to the monorail resorts. Maybe try CR next time or depending on the refurb schedule at Poly....they're certainly not as chatty though over on those forums... :-)

Less than a week before I arrive at BCV!!!! I'm so excited! I've been more focused on the race (Tower of Terror 10 miler) than my stay at BC so I haven't been here as much as I should.

Question: The race starts at 10pm so I think I need to have a good, late breakfast on race day. Cape May has no availability. I was thinking about the brunch at Fresh Mediterranean Market at the Dolphin (we had a lovely brunch there in June before our cruise) but I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions. I want an easy today so I prefer something within walking distance of BC. I have an AP and TIW card so I can go in a park or in a Boardwalk-area resort.

Thanks!
Amanda

PS Have a great cruise Teena and I'll see you next weekend!!!

I have never been, but have heard good things about breakfast at Kouzzina over at BW, if you are interested in a sit down breakfast. Captain's Grill over at YC has a nice breakfast too.

We had breakfast had Captains Grille and it was excellent! They have a buffet as well as an a la carte menu. Can't get much closer to the BC
