Thanks for all the well wishes everyone - we are cancelling our trip, as he's been diagnosed with Shingles now. My poor guy.

So sorry to hear this... If caught soon enough, there is medicine that may lessen the pain/effects of the shingles. Sorry, can't remember the name of the drug. I hope his illness is as painless as possible; and that you can plan your next Disney trip soon

Sorry you had to cancel, hope he was able to get that anti viral med to help.

We are arriving in Orlando 4 days prior (Wed 4/17) till we check into the BC and plan to do other parks Legoland, Universal etc. I have not booked my offsite hotel yet. Any suggestions???

My BIG problem is that I need a car. I don’t know how I should rent it.. I also want to be able return it on Sunday 4/21 the easiest way without taking up a lot of time. (or money ) I read that Alamo/National are located right at the Dolphin. So if I rent from them somewhere offsite and drive to BC on Sunday am to drop off family to check in, do you think I can I return it to the Dolphin and “walk” back to BC??? Is it close enough??

My other concern is we are landing at 5pm on Wednesday night… should I pick up the car at the airport?? Or take Mears shuttle to the hotel and rent a car from there??? I bet its much cheaper as you don’t have to pay that “airport fee”. I’m so confused and not sure what to do… I priced it quick for a full size or small SUV and it was over $400.00 for 5days/ 4 night. Urgh. I really don’t want to pay that.

So if anyone has any advice… that would be wonderful!!! Thanks so much!!!
We stayed at The Doubletree just outside of Universal. Nice, spacious rooms, and very close to Universal.
If you need a rental car for first part of trip, I'd rent at airport. Any savings from renting offsite would be eaten up with paying for Mears shuttle.
Yes, you can walk to BC from Dolphin. I really like Alamo. Check on Mousesavers.com for any Orlando car rental discounts.

This trip was just for me and DH to celebrate my birthday and experience F&W. We booked a garden view through AAA with the fall discount. We requested a King Bed knowing it would be a long shot.

We were greeted at the entrance by a woman with an iPad who escorted me to the check in counter. I did not expect this as I am I am used to being escorted to the 5th floor when we stayed club level. My "escort" wished me a happy birthday and told me the check in person would give me a pin. Because there was one person ahead of me, she escorted me to the concierge desk to check in there. The person there seemed very slow and careful in her actions but I was patient as I had no children to worry about! I was thrilled when she told us we had a king bed! She also told us we were upgraded to a pool/ lagoon view room. I left checkout and didn't receive my birthday pin, but DH got one for me the next day (my actual birthday was Sunday so it was fair enough to wait until Saturday). It really is fun having so many cast members wish you Happy Birthday by name.

We went upstairs to room 3683 which was in a very quiet corner. The room was wonderful! There was a long hallway in front of the entry door. The closet was near the end of the hallway on the right followed by the alcove for the bathroom area. The main part of the room was to the right at the end of the hall. There was a stand up balcony across from the king bed, a large window to the right, and on the same wall as the bed, a door to a huge balcony that overlooked the pool. You could also see the lagoon from certain angles.

Because we stayed only two nights, I don't have a lot to report otherwise. Mousekeeping was great complete with Mickey towels on the bed. We purchased a few necessities at the shop. We had breakfast at Captain's Grille on Sunday which was an unexpected surprise. DH had the buffet and we were both impressed with the quality and selection. I had the lobster omlette. Yum. The price and food are fantastic compared to the character breakfast at Cape May.

After breakfast Sunday, we went down to the pool. We were excited to discover that the stairs by our room came out right by Martha's Vineyard. We went out to the pool right there and they had a pool check in right by Beaches and Cream that I didn't recall from prior stays. Is this new or did I just miss it? In any case, we enjoyed a quiet hot tub and then stuck our feet in the pool a little bit before checking out and heading back to Epcot.

I am looking forward to return to BC with the kids in January for MLK weekend! We considered the pros and cons of other properties, but BC is our #1 choice. We definitely did not need CL this trip due to F&W and traveling alone, but with the kids, we will stay CL again as it really helps us get a decent quick breakfast, quick afternoon snacks (the kids love the chips!) and a sweet and a cordial before bed.
Thanks for the report Karen. This was one where I was holding my breathe that there wouldn' t be a punch line where something was wrong. We have never stayed on this end of the BC but sounds like it would be convenient for different reasons. The B&C entrance has been there for a while. It's the one we usually use.

Do you fly or drive? We live about an hour south of Charlotte and have done both. Time wise we save maybe an hour flying. Flight cost and how many of us are going usually dictate the fly/drive option. Haven't seen many airfare deals out of CLT lately so have driven down the last few trips.

Thanks again for the great report.
