We are at BC now. We arrived on Friday morning with no travel delays. Got in to MCO @ 9:45 am, walked straight To ME and only had to wait about 10 mins. total before our bus was rolling. Arrived at BC after stopping at POR and BW and our room was ready! We dropped of our stuff and headed to the MK. I had forgotten to order water, so I ordered it from Turner Drugs on the way in on the bus and it was in our room, along with our luggage when we got back later that afternoon.

We then hit SAB and I couldn't get my DS 9 off of the slide. I think he went down it about 25 times. After a quick cleanup we were off to Epcot. We did DS yesterday morning with EMH. We normally visit in January or Sept., so I am finding the crowds to be quite heavy. DS wasn't too bad, but the MK was wall-to-wall people. We left after playing the Sorcerers game for a while and came back to play in SAB.

FYI - We have had no problem finding a chair at SAB in the late afternoon. There are towels on most of them, but there always seem to be 1 or 2 scattered around that are empty. They are also checking room keys still for every member of your party, which I appreciate! We also brought 2 noodles from home, so I'll leave them as new adoptees for the noodle family if the others can't be located.

We are off to the MK again the morning because the boys just can't get enough of Sorcerers. Have a magical day!

It is so funny how people interpret crowds differently. Now mind you we aren't riding any of the mountains and only things my toddlers can go, but I didn't think the crowds were too bad at MK yesterday. We even saw the parade with a front row spot picked 2 minutes prior to tge start.

Hi! Haven't been able to throw in updates. The wifi isn't that great. I get kicked off often.
Sitting on my balcony again taking in this gorgeous view.
The boys and I went to Epcot yesterday. They let us through IG around 9:50. I walked to get Soarin FPs while they headed to SOAT. Got 9:45 - 10:45 RT. we stayed in future world until 11 because they wanted to find hidden mickeys. In the pouring rain! Total memory making day. We had a blast.
Went to SAB around 2 and the slide was closed. They said it was being repaired.
We are LOVING the lounge. For some reason my picker eaters are trying (and loving) everything! Just that alone is worth it!

You are looking live at the lobby of the beach club resort in sunny, for now, Florida.
So the big surprise was interesting. My oldest, 9, sat right up blinked twice and declared "but I haven't done my nails" (any one else think I am in trouble with this one?)
My youngest, 4, walked around in a fog and kept asking "where are we going again?"
And my middle one, woke up, burst into angry tears and said "I am not going!" Grabbed her blanket, rolled over and went back to sleep!

Great first day. We were upgraded to a garden view and are overlooking a lovely courtyard. We spent yesterday at AK. Rode EE four times even though we did not get there until 2:30.

More updates later. MK today!

Great first day it the parks.

We hit DHS first. Rode RnR x2, ToT x2, TSM, GMR, & ST. Saw B&tB, and drew Mickey/Minnie in the Animation Studios.

Then, mid-day, went over to Epcot.

Played Where's Perry through England, Mexico & Finland. Ate dinner for the first time at the San Angel Inn. Rode Malestrom, SE, & Nemo.

We finished the day with a swim in SAB. The flying job, however, was down all day.

It was wet in the morning, but warm & humid in afternoon. It was pretty crowded, but it wasn't a problem it you worked the crowds correctly.

Every CM was really friendly!

Off to TL this morning & MK tonight for EMHs.

NOTE: this would have been more detailed, had I not accidentally closed the browser when I was almost through my longer update. Tomorrows with be more colorful, I promise.

so sad & disappointed

I found out today the IPO I emailed our flight information to never actually entered it in the computer. (I have the email from her confirming it was all taken care of ) So now we were told that we wouldn't be getting our tags until 2-3 days before we leave!! I am so disappointed in the IPO & freaked out to have to wait & hope it gets here in time.

How fun! Memories in the rain can be so amazing sometime. I love that you did not let it get you down and just made a great day of it

Hoping it is ok to post this here

You have all inspired me. As I have posted before I have stayed at all of the deluxes except the GF and the BC/YC. Since we are DVC I have stayed at the AKL, OKW, BW & BLT for my last 8 trips. This year I decided to try something new so I am staying at the Beach Club Villas. After spending months on this foum preparing for this trip, I knew I was going to love it. Now, in the way of explanation, I am a DISigner on the Creative DISign Forum. I make shirts for each of my trips. I have shirts for WL, OKW, BW and AKL. Normally I have to ask for help with the "I Love" shirts as I couldn't make the globe for the Mickey Head. Well this year when I wanted to make one for when I met Teena, I decided I wanted to do it all of the components myself. So I asked a fellow PI DISigner, she gave me step by step directions and here is one of the results.



If you would like to see the other ones, they are here.

Thanks everyone for all of the advice over the last few months. We leave in less than two weeks and I can hardly wait. Penny

We never got our tags in the mail and when we went to check in at airport they had our old resort that printed out. They fixed in a few min. But we arrived late at night and didn't have a participating airline so we had to get our bags anyway. Hope you get them before you go.
