And I'll let you know how ToT is!
Marathon Weekend in January is a very special time. There are SO many runners - both new and experienced. There's a great feeling of kinship as you walk around the parks with your shiny new medal.
I'm curious about ToT. In the race instructions they commented that a huge percentage of runners are running their first distance race. It's obviously a much smaller event but it's tied to F&W and MNSSHP. I think there are a lot of people who haven't really trained and don't really care about the race but are going for the experience.
Anyway next week at this time I'll be walking around with my new ToT medal! (And at BC, too!)

I don't have any advice for you, Angel, but wanted to say congratulations!!! Enjoy your anniversary celebration!

This is an adults-only trip. My wife and I will be celebrating our 50th birthdays and we are taking my mother in law as well. This will be both mine & MIL first visit ever.

Advice on room requests is appreciated. We would like a full balcony for the morning coffee/evening wine. What is the likelihood our two rooms will be reasonably close?
As Dee said, all villas have either a balcony or patio so no worries there. Frankly, I'd just request villas near each other and leave it at that. There are only 200+ villas including one and two BRs and the views aren't really that great anyway (although I personally love the woods views). I would think leaving it to that one request would be your best bet? Have a great first visit!!

We are staying at BLT for 4 nights marathon week in January. Then moving to BCV's for 4 nights. Really, really excited about this split. Best of both Worlds!

We've stayed at both the Beach Club and the Beach Club Villas many times. The BCVs are actually a closer walk to Epcot than many of the BC rooms. We love the fact that it is so easy to walk to Epcot. And the walk to HS isn't too bad, either. It is a great resort to stay at when you have teenagers or family groups, because everyone can go their separate ways and it is easy to meet up again later. It is also easy to walk over to watch the Grand Illumination at night.

That being said, we are opting for the Wilderness Lodge for the first time ever, since we now have grandchildren and the MK is not that easy to reach from the BC.

Thanks Dee! My plan is to try and put some live photos up while we're at BC. The TR for the upcoming trip is sure to be EPIC!

Have you read up about club level on that thread? I love club level at Beach Club. So wonderful coming to start off the day with breakfast in the lounge and to end the day with a cordial and sweet treat. You can ask for water and they will bring you large bottles of Evian to have in your room. Last trip, they actually delivered them to our room. Usually they will hand them to you. We often got two or three (when there were 5 of us in the deluxe cl room). If you have any special dietary needs (e.g.,lactose free milk) tell them and they will accomodate you at the lounge. Make sure the club level concierge knows its your anniversary and if you have any special requests, let them know. They will also do personal shopping for you so if you see something special you want to have waiting in the room as a surprise, they will do that for you. Have a great trip!

Finally booked!

After much thought and review we have booked! We had such a great experience at the Beach Club last year, I didn't seem to have it in me to try anywhere else. I looked and looked but nothing seemed to compare or meet our needs as well. A little nervous about the crowds and heat in June but now that the kids are getting older, their school schedule just doesn't seem to accomodate times during the school year. So we are going in June and going to make the best of it! I look at it as better to be there than not to be!

Add me to the Be Our Guest List!

Picking up package tickets early

Has anyone done this? I have booked a couple of packages for my brother and family. They will be there the day before with a room only reservation. I saw in another thread that you can go to guest relations and pick up the park tickets up to 3 days before your package starts. Has anyone done this? The CM's at AAA travel say no but the thread said they would say no!!! And someone had done it in 2010. I am fairly new at this booking reservations for people (other then myself of course!!!! ) and want to get it right. It would save a ton of money if he could do this as opposed to getting 1 day tickets for the first day.

I thought I would ask in this forum since everyone seems so knowledgeable and friendly!

Thank you

We did this on our December 2010 trip and it worked out great . We had 2 nights room only at AKL before changing resorts where we had a package. Our first day we headed to AK where we went to guest relations and requested early ticket pick up. The CM was very knowledgeable and within 10 minutes we were entering AK. I was only asked to show a photo ID, but others have reported needing their package confirmation number, so make sure they have that with them just in case .

Amanda, hope the training is going well. We're so excited to hear your ToT 10 report. We were at Poly last year for our youngest son's bday during marathon weekend and there was such great energy!

Hi BCV23!

Dee, thanks so much for the tip - LOVE Missyrose's CR trip report!

Yay for the slide! (Although we're pretty easy to please when it comes to SAB!)

Hi,
We are staying at the Yacht Club from 11/28/12-12/5/12. We originally booked CL at BC but since my mom is coming and her only request was a balcony we switched to YC CL to make sure she's happy.

Please add us to the Be Our Guest list. We'd love some time with the noodles when they aren't in use by others.

We stayed at the YC in March and loved it. The location is so amazing.

That said, our first family trip was to WL, back in 2004. I still have a soft spot for WL and know we will return there at some point in the future. It is a great resort for small children - close to MK, and a relatively small property, so it is quick for little legs to get around.

But we will also be back to the BC or YC too!
