Is anyone checking in Tuesday? We are going to have some water, fruit snacks, horizons chocolate milk singles, nature valley bars, and possibly pop tarts that we would much rather pass on then throw out

Question - with Hurricane Hanna's closed - I guess there are no tv's poolside, correct? I know my husband will want to watch the games, but we will want to be swimming - I was hoping for both.

There are bathrooms in the pool area, but I don't remember a changing stall there.

I thought your second question was easy, but I have never been to the Marketplace in the evening. You can definitely get the juice and milk any time of day. I think the cereal would still be out, but I haven't experienced that myself. We have gone in the afternoon and there were still pastries in the case.

Another option is to grab something as you are leaving one of the parks whenever you are headed back to your room the day before you leave:

MK- cinnamon bun or pastry and drinks from Main Street Bakery
EPCOT- pastry or even a sandwich from France that would keep and make a hearty breakfast the next morning (the ham and cheese is awesome)
HS-check out Writer's Stop or Starring Rolls
AK- Kusafari Bakery (don't know where that is though)


Could someone who has a trip in the next week or so check out the Marketplace in the evening to see what is out. Individual cereal boxes? What type of pastries?
Dee-Thanks so much for this information! Your "thread-host" work is so appreciated!

But not sure about the status of that area right now - didn't venture over to the YC side last weekend!

I need to get going on my BC Marketplace update! So I'll work on that shortly. I spent more time than usual at the Marketplace this trip, since we didn't book CL and we were SO CLOSE to it in our fabulous 2nd floor room. (Can you tell how much I loved it?) In my experience, the Marketplace can get quite busy in the evenings right after Epcot closes, and I don't find crowds in the morning because I'm usually there around 6:30am for coffee and then 7am for anything else. Last weekend, a line started to build in the quick service area around 7:30am.

Here's a photo of the cereals that I took in the evening last weekend:

Pixarmom, Thanks for all your updates and pictures. This is our first BC stay, and all the updates and recent information is very helpful!

NM-Thinking of you today. You and your sweet mom continue to be in my prayers.

Thanks for all the happy comments about our BC photos - happy to spread a little BC cheer!

Welcome Back, Hopefully! So glad you had a wonderful trip!! We arrived the same day that you did, and expected Epcot to be super crowded over the Columbus day weekend - it sure was! We were able to hop over to Future World after dinner last Saturday night, but needed to brave the crowds in World Showcase on Sunday to secure my caramel pecan bars and grey goose slushie. All worth it! MK on Monday morning was wonderful - we walked on everything for hours. We're looking forward to low Epcot crowds at the end of January - fingers crossed.

We did this last weekend! Our boys and I spent some extra time in Epcot, chatted with Teena and swam at SAB while my husband watched the Packer game. He walked over to ESPN after our lunch at San Angel and had a great time (even made a friend - he was one of many husbands at the bar solo watching games!) It's not the same as poolside, but it worked well for us!

We are heading to our 4th BC stay in December. We never had any issues with checking into a dirty room, but now I am worried. (and I realize this could happen anywhere, not specific to BC).
My DS5 has a very bad peanut allergy. Is it possible for me to call ahead of time and ask that they pay close attention when they clean the room before we arrive? We won't get in until after 9PM so there wouldn't be any hurry to get it done by regular check in time.

Hopefully, thanks for the trip report! It sounds like you had a wonderful trip! The minor inconveniences (dryer and refrigerator issues) would not have bothered me either unless they did not get fixed the first time.

I'm surprised by the crowds you encountered this time of year. I've heard F & W is crowded on weekends.

Like I've said before, I love hearing about everyone's vacations! Disney is one of my favorite topics to discuss and read about!

On an unrelated note, my husband sent me emails whenever he sees an article about WDW.....the Haunted Mansion house is for sale, Test Track is closing, Fantasyland expansion, etc. Anyway, this week he thought he had scooped me by telling me about the RFID bracelets they are possibly implementing. Silly boy, I spend about an hour a day reading various Disney-related websites. By the time something hits Yahoo! or Google, I've known about it for several days (at least). He was foiled again! Ha!

pixarmom, I have to say your pics of the solarium make me a little sad! We will be arriving at the BC next Saturday and that has always been our favorite place to relax. I know it will reopen but I will miss it on this trip. Once a few years ago we arrived late and spent one night at ASM before checking into BC. We got up that morning and went to the food court for breakfast. After seeing the insanity there we decided to just head over to the BC. We got there and had breakfast in the Solarium and it was an AHHHH moment.

Teena, we will stop by and say hello. I have met you a few times but I don't think you would remember me. You always make everyone feel so welcome!

Looking forward to another great stay at BC!

I know, I was a little surprised when I walked in the solarium. I mean, I knew it was going to be a gym, but it's funny to see it that way! I know it's not the same, but there are so many new seating areas around the Marketplace and some old favorites, too. We like the chairs right outside the lobby facing the lake and the chairs on the beach for our breakfast. And the new seating right outside the Marketplace and outside in the courtyard between BC and BCV are a nice addition. The fact that it's NOT like a food court is one of the things I love about BC!

Hope you have a wonderful trip!

Here's that area right outside the lobby. (we stayed in a room overlooking this area - there were usually more chairs than appear in this photo.)



Here's the new seating right outside the Marketplace. (This is just one set of seats - there is an identical set on the other side of the door.)



And here's a few new photos of the area outside the Marketplace between BC and BCV. (Sorry, it was very early in the morning!)











Wish I had a photo of our breakfast on the beach! That's probably my favorite!

Glad you had a wonderful stay! Let us know when your plans for next year firm up!!!

So, I'm here at the font of all YC/BC knowledge in need of opinions. YC-lovers of the non-CL variety, what's your favourite request for a GV room? I asked for "quiet, away from lobby" but since I'm unsure on the types of garden views available, just wondering what my non-guaranteed options were...

Thank you a gazillion-million in advance.
back- I just noticed that you are not on the Be Our Guest list for January, so I'll add you.

Please notice that I have cleverly disguised your screen name above to fool your DS!

Bounceback - BB was FD for 8/18 - 9/26 next year. We prefer room discounts and those dates do not work for us at all, so we did not book.
Thank you so much fo the very detailed review of your trip!

I too am waiting for a room only discount, for July.

I don't know.

Anyone???

I'm not sure if there is any helpful info in the Beach Club Villa post on Page 1. I have not stayed at the villas, so the info that is there was inherited when I took over the thread or was provided by other posters here.
