I'm starting with booking gv rooms in both resorts and then will change the view or to cl once the AP rates for July come out.

Hope you get a good rate so the "Real Dee" can finally attend our mini BC/YC Dis Meet.

YCFAN was a fabulous surprise this year.

Now if I could get you, pixarmom and HockeymomR all there at the same time with YCFAN, Teena, Lauren and myself that would be a blast!
Glad you have some dates planned.

Me, too!

Howdy!

Do you care to share your dates? I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.



BTW- sorry I am so behind on your TR. Look forward to catching up when things slow down for me. Maybe 2014!

This makes me happy since we're checking into YC for the very first time next week. This is a big celebration trip for us and it could be our only chance to stay at a Deluxe. Your comments make me feel like I made the right choice on which Deluxe to choose.

We truly felt at home at YC!!! We loved everything about it! We just wanted to give a few other resorts a try as well. You are going to LOVE YC!!!

If you're not thrilled with WL, you can always go to the front desk and ask to speak with a manager. Tell them that although the resort is really nice, you just prefer the YC. Ask them to see if there is availability at the YC and if there is, I'm sure they would move you over for the rest of your vacation.

Teena, thank you! I thought about it, but we are just here for a quick 2 night trip so it is easier to stay put. I am glad we are getting to experience different resorts though, this way we can pick our favorite and just stick with it

You're right ... for two nights not worth it!
Enjoy that lobby and have dinner at Artist Point!

Flat Ben is off on a new trip, starting this morning with AnjieNet. But please be warned... he ventures to the "Dark Side" this time!


Have you ever wondered why Flat Ben is so flat???

This is good to hear as we are trying YC CL next summer and we are very excited . We've stayed at the BC and do love the Epcot area, so I'm sure we'll have a great stay . I'm sorry you aren't enjoying the WL as much as you hoped, but like you said, it's nice to try different ones so you can see which ones are to your liking and which ones you don't care for .

so sorry to hear you aren't enjoying WL. It's one of my fav resorts. Love that lobby, and the grounds are so pretty. The boat to MK and the resort boat are great. We also enjoy the walking path to Ft W. go over to the Villas and have a look in the Carolwood room. It's all about Walts love of Steam trains.
Watch the Electric Water Parade from the beach, or your balcony if you have a Courtyard room. Hope you can find some things to enjoy.

If you would like sample Artists Point but can't get in or do not have time, you can visit the bar next to the restaurant and order starters from their menu. One evening we had an ADR but just weren't hungry enough for an entire dinner. We visited the check-in desk then hit the bar and had the best mushroom soup and bread, and a couple of finger food items and it was great. They even offered the dessert menu (skipped it). Everything but the entree. Disclaimer, this was in early Dec. so they weren't real busy. Not sure if this would work in high season.

Flat Ben has all the fun and the people escorting him are doing a fantastic job....well, except for that family that let him get run over by that... well never mind!

Do yourself a favor and grab something nice to drink and take a moment to catch up on this fabulously funny trip report. Here is the link:

You know this has to be one of the most helpful dining tips I've ever read! It simply never occurred to me to go over to the bar and eat that way when I don't have an ADR. I'm not a drinker so I never knew you could eat SOME of the menu items that way. This would be a sneaky way for hubby and I to split up from our teen boys, send them off to some counter service burger bodega while we indulge in all the wonderous goodies that they don't have the palate to appreciate!

Now I'm going to see if there is a way to figure out which resorts have this bar option. I'm figuring all the deluxe's and any of the parks where liquor is served in a restaurant that has a Bar, like 50's Prime Time. We may be resort visiting for the December trip so I will try to look this up and keep it on my trip -'spontaneous planning' radar.

Thanks!!

~NM

Just popping in to say hi. I haven't been keeping up since we got back from our last trip. Starting to visit the boards again as we get ready for our upcoming cruise. We have a couple day stay after our cruise. Right now we are booked at WL hoping that our BLT wait list comes through. We will be missing the BC I am sure. Since the trip is short and we only have 2 day tix with no hopping we thought being closer to MK was best. Can't wait to see new Fantasyland. We have ADR's for Be Our Guest!

Hope everyone is well.
