The king beds at BCV have four standard size pillows. HTH.

No freezer in the refrigerators at YC and BC these days. The villas have small freezer sections in studios and full freezers sections in the one and two BRS. HTH.

Blizzard Beach was a great time. The sun stayed out all day. We are waiting for the bus to MK and it is now looking stormy. We may be dodging rain and lightening this evening but the weather map looks like it won't last long. Now if only the bus would get here! Lol
Hope your new room is much more peaceful!

We weren't sure what to expect with our room (garden view) but I must say its great. We have a view right as you walk out the lobby and can see SAB and crescent lake from our patio. We took off straight for Epcot and messed around there for a few and just came back to the room to unpack and get settled before we venture out for the night. Like cmcadoo said the weather looks bad but I think it's going to miss us...crossing fingers!
Have a great vacation!

Great new FAQ, Dee. Thanks for all your work.

I have been to Wells a few times, too. Great sea glass.

I truly love New England. As I commented in my trip report, we live 15-20 minutes away from 3 beaches in two states, we are about an hour from Boston, a couple of hours from the mountains and we are close to fun attractions like York's Wild Animal Kingdom, Canobie Lake Park and Water Country.


The winters s*ck, though!

Mickey Mail ...

I keep seeing mentions of Mickey Mail and I am now starting to panic ...

Is just for people with packages??? or using Magical Express?? (we are renting a car) We have a room only reservation and have not received anything since we booked it a few months ago

We check-in 8 days!!

Can someone ease my concerns??

(Of course I did just sign on to see my reservation smiling back at me with my balance due date of our arrival day)

Excellent question! The Beaches and Cream take out window is currently a location for CM-assisted mug refill. I haven't heard if there will be an alternate refill station set up but that would be a great idea.

As soon as we hear how it is all working once HH is shut down, we will post the info here.

I don't know the answer to your question, but hopefully one of the experts here can help you out. What I do know is that Mickey Mail usually comes in two phases- one is the regular package/booking info. Magical Express luggage tags are sent separately.

1) Yes and No.





I believe two half-gallons will fit. Can anyone confirm?

2) Don't know. Hope someone can answer this for you.


Missions- up for grabs

I want to add a section to the FAQ post called "Will it Fit?"

I would love it if someone going soon could take pictures of the fridge with a half gallon of milk/juice in it, and of the safe with an ipad (if it indeed fits)

Anyone up for packing a tape measure to get the dimensions of the safe?

Yes, I am serious!

BTW- I am still looking for someone to "time" the lazy river. How long does it take to make one complete rotation without propulsion.

Again. Serious.

Paid off our room only reservation this morning! Less than two weeks until our first BC stay. Cannot wait!

I wanted to thank folks again for their wheelchair suggestions last month. I'm more of a lurker than a poster but wanted to give you a quick knee surgery update. Had it done 4 weeks ago and the recovery is moving along swiftly. I'm up to walking 1.5 miles a day before my knee cries uncle. Definitely won't be able to handle 5-10 miles a day in WDW for a week. Anyway- my health insurance covers the wheelchair rental so I decided to rent one from a medical supply company here at home and truck it down on the plane. It's not ideal but it gave me the ability to be fitted for it and I was able to choose the lightweight travel model. A lot more choices than the mobility suppliers that deliver to WDW hotels.

I know many people recommended a scooter but DH and I both feel that since I'll only need a mobility device part time, it's more hassle and overkill than it's worth since we'll be relying on WDW transportation. I warned him about the heat and physical toll it will be for him to push me but he's not concerned. (he's a hardcore runner, biker and swimmer - triathlete, so endurance challenges are his forte - I keep warning him to be careful what he wishes for, LOL) Here's hoping it goes smoothly and this gimpy knee doesn't interrupt my fun.

Yes! Two iPads fit comfortably together in the BC safe (though not much room for anything else...)

Dee~ I just took a picture of my fridge with a half gallon of milk in the door. I can email it to you if you would like.

Here's a room update......all was quiet!!! We still have connecting doors but it hasn't been a problem this time. You wouldn't even know someone was next door!!

Well today's plan is to spend the day at AK. Typical chance of rain for today so all should be good! I will check in later.

Have a great day!
