Welcome, new poster!

Scott, I watched your video with ( somewhat jealous!) glee! LOL. I loved getting a glimpse of "our" balcony too.

NM you get out there and advocate for your mom! People of our parents' generation tend to treat doctors as gods and be more passive. I hope she is more comfortable soon.

Parents may personally they turn me into a sarcastic moo. I am hoping to change my wilderness lodge booking to the Beach Club so with any luck I will be there 9/24 to 10/8 2013 (just as a matter of interest why do americans go month first rather than date first?)

I think if you are a party of 4 they might charge you for the rollaway or a party of 5 in a room with a daybed they might charge. We were in a room without a daybed this year (party of 5) but we had an air mattress and it worked out even better than a rollaway because we just deflated it every morning!
I didn't think anyone is supposed to be charged for the rollaway cot unless the policies have changed.

Feckless and her family requested a rollaway (party of 4) and I don't believe she was charged for it. (ETA- just found this reply from her)

NinjaMom - my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I know how hard and frustrating it can be when you have to advocate for your mom.

ScottMC - Wow!!! Congrats on a fabulous pixie dusted upgrade! Narcoossee's is our very favorite restaurant. I've even been known to stalk a BC/YC Disser there (YCFAN)!

We are booked with a garden view. We were at the BC for our first anniversary. We had a room with a king size bed, ground floor, overlooking the volleyball field. It may have been 1501 or something like that. We did not have a view of the lake from our room, but did from the balcony? Is that considered a garden view or a water view??? We had booked our room through the ADA convention site so we were not aware of the room type.
If it is a garden view room, could somebody could tell me what kind of room request to do to be in that area again? We loved to eat breakfast peacefully on our balcony overlooking the lake and the proximity to Epcot. Would that be best to request to be close to the volleyball? A full balcony? A king sized bed?

Sorry for the rambling, I'm just so happy the way this vacation is turning out to be!
and congratulations on all of your celebrations.

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.



What is the most important request for you? From what I understand, there aren't a lot of king beds available. If this is your priority, it may come at a sacrifice of location.

If the location is what you enjoyed most, perhaps you could word a request "Full balcony, please, room near EPCOT. King bed, if possible"

Let us know if you book another trip!

Need some help deciding. We are going Oct 9-15. Should we try to squeeze in the water parks or not? We have a Water World near our house and 4 years ago in October we were wearing jackets at night it was so cold in Orlando.

Thoughts???
We have trouble fitting in the waterparks during 7 day trips in July, although our usual plan is to do a half day at AK then go directly to Blizzard Beach. I wouldn't go out of my way to get there. Any chance you can fit it in last minute if the weather turns out really nice?

I think that drove me crazy, too! Are the lights time or light- activated?

I'm up every morning at O-dark:30 and I think I actually dragged a floor lamp between the curtain and the balcony so I could read (I think it was at the BC, but could have been somewhere else...)
