35 days until I don't even have time to stress and overplan because things this time of year are sooo busy for me. I can only catch up on the thread during lunch eating at my desk or on the bus to away games ( soccer coach) My DH even mentioned that I must be going through DIS withdrawl because by the time I get home at night it is 8 pm and I have time to eat dinner, pack lunch, grade papers, sleep and start again when the alarm goes off at 5:45 I don't mind being this busy other than being really tired at the end of the night. I dont have time to be slowly counting down the days because the days go by sooo fast

So excited for my first F&W

You will love it It is such a wonderful resort with so much to do and see right around crescent lake Don't worry about negative comments. Go in knowing there is some renovating going on but that is to make it even better Nothing in life is perfect. Don't worry about little imperfect issues because it will take away all the wonderful things happening around you You will have such a great time. I am cointing down the days with you

DH is thrilled to know that he can get a breakfast sandwhich

Same here! It's WDW! Can't wait!!!

Anyone have anything negative to say about the Photopass? We are not getting the Photopass+ since we don't have any ADR's that apply to it. Just checking before I do the pre-order.

We did pick a pearl at EPCOT last year. We picked the EPCOT location based on the advice at the time and that was that the ceremony that the CM does in Japan is better than what happens at BC. My daughter and I both did it. She loved it and we ended up with matching necklaces. I did buy the coach pendants online before we went. I don't know if mine is the same as yours but I wear mine alot and it has held up well. I get alot of compliments on it. It was one of the best priced experiences at Disney, in my opinion.

I'll be keeping my eyes pealed for the early Oct reports - thank you!!!!
Hello Minnie! It will be OK! The great thing is that you're here on the thread and you will know what to expect. I find that if I know what to expect - and especially when I see it through photos - I can really enjoy my trip.

But I'll warn you, I'm a "glass-half-full" kind of reporter, so my early October report is likely to be relatively positive (some may even call it biased!) I've been to BC during many improvement periods - slide down, most of SAB down, etc. We always have a great time, and hey, it's "for our future enjoyment!" I do like Hurricane Hanna's (especially the refill mug station) and the solarium, so it's not like I won't miss those spots, but there's so much else there to enjoy.

My DD's did it in Japan in 2011.......they LOVED it. forgot to do it this past year, but plan on returning in 2013 to try it again. They both made necklaces out of them, and wear it all the time.

During my visit the last week of August, I sadly discovered that the new breakfast sandwich was served on white bread (and pressed in a panini press)- no croissants, at least not during my visit. I do hope they've changed that by the time you go- it makes a big difference! Good luck. The breakfast platter was really good, but not as portable as the croissant...

MY DH and I resisted cruising for many years until DS1 and his wife convinced it to give it a try. Absolutely love it especially the days at sea. Good luck convincing your family.

Oh, shoot. Thanks for the info. Did you try the sandwich? I suppose it might be healthier than on a croissant but we always split those to try to minimize the damage.

Couchy, I'm exhausted reading your current schedule. At least the time will fly!

30th anniversary merch

Do any of you YC/BC experts know if special anniversary stuff is usually available online, or is it limited to the parks? I saw a picture last month on the Disney Parks blog of a 30th anniversary Epcot hat that I just HAVE to have! I had hoped the anniversray stuff would have been out in the stores during my trip last month, but a CM told me they wouldn't have the anniversary stuff until Oct 1. (I may have to beg one of you nice YC/BC people lucky enough to be there for the anniversary to pick one up for me!)

Thanks! I'm looking forward to it. I've read the same about doing it in Epcot so we will probably go there as well.

It's been a week since we checked in at the BC... and 3 days since we got home. I miss my beloved BC. Now, I'm going to go turn on my tart warmer with the lobby scent and cry softly to myself.

VaFamily, funny you should mention this, because our boys always note that the slide hurts their backs. They still say it's the best resort pool and slide on property so far (see list of resorts in my signature!) I'll let them know that's a reason reported for the closure and see if they can tell the difference (in just 12 days!)
Please let us know if your boys see a difference. Next year will be our first stay at BC and I would hope to not to feel pain when going down the slide!

The breakfast sandwich was served on bread. I talked to Rocky today while at SAB and she said the kids lunches are not being served in the lunch pails during HH renovations. She seemed very excited about the changed they are making to HH :-)
