Yes. Each room has Wi-Fi but different reports on how good it works.
Well, I'm here at the Yacht Club, and I couldn't get it to work. It says it was available and I tried to connect, but I never got it to connect. My Verizon service is far superior (though obviously more expensive!).

That's what I did. In August, we stayed at BC and BWI and the Wi-Fi wasn't great at either place. I'm sure it just needs some tweaking.

[QUOTE=Steph H;46849749]

Hoop Dee Doo was fabulous, of course...loved seeing my kids smiles! And an added bonus was that, when it was over, they had buses to take us directly to Yacht Club. My sister-in-law (my travel agent), had indicated that it would require numerous bus transfers to get back, so that was a pleasant surprise!

[QUOTE]

LOVE Hoop Dee Doo! And, that's great about the trip back. Last time we were there (a few years ago) we didn't want to wait in the line for the boat to MK, so we decided to try and take a bus. I think we walked to an internal bus stop, waited 20 or so minutes, then got on a bus to a park, then hopped on the bus back to our resort (CS). It took all night - or at least it felt like it. We had all had some sangria at dinner, so as that wore off during our long trek home, we were cranky and tired.

Sorry, don't know why my quoting didn't work! I swear I know how to do this! LOL

We've been here @ YC since fri. and the wifi is not very reliable. I'm using my Verizon connection and my son his ATT rather than bothering w/ the wifi. The lobby seems to be a bit better than the room for wifi, tho'.

Good morning, everyone!! Hope all are well. We are doing great here at YC. Yesterday was Magic Kingdom all day, where we rode lots of rides that we hadn't gotten to on Sunday. Lots of fun! Barnstormer, Thunder Mountain Railroad, Peter Pan, Splash Mountain, and the little one and I did the Carousel of Progress while the older one and DH did...um, is it Space Mountain that's the big rollercoaster in Tomorrow Land? Ha ha, I can NOT keep them straight!

We were supposed to do Epcot in the afternoon, but the kids wanted to stay at MK so we did, secure with the knowledge that we could walk there this morning at rope drop. LOVE that perk of staying at Yacht/Beach! We went back to the room around 4pm so the kids could unwind and watch a movie. Then, we met up with a lifelong friend of mine who happens to work here at Disney, and then we went to Chef's de France and had a WONDERFUL dinner. Kevine was wonderful...so personable and fun.

Sadly, I just can't figure out to get the direct links to pictures so I can add them directly to a post, but I did at least get some uploaded to flickr for folks to view.

http://flic.kr/s/aHsjD6kFem

That's public, so you should all be able to see them. Just a few of the room and our view. Oh, and our picture with the lovely Teena that we got to see on Sunday! What a treat!!

Off to Epcot, where I am hoping and praying I will be able to find a REAL cup of cappuccino in Italy. (Coffee-aholic, yes I am. )

If anyone has anything they would like me to check on while I'm here, just post and I'll do my best! I'm getting pictures of the CL offerings as I can. Hoping to get to cordials and desserts tonight!

I had such a good time with them! We met up at the Crews Cup Lounge for burgers after my shift and really had time to chat!!

Speaking of dinner. I got to have dinner at Cape May Cafe Monday night after my shift with some guests and still no ribs. However, the roast beef they were carving was really good. They have changed the Clam Chowder too. They added crab and more bacon to it. They call is Seafood Chowder.

So for those who were asking about Test Track, it's open in a "testing" phase this week and I believe the official opening is tomorrow. We're in line right now, having just designed our vehicle and now on our way to test it out!

You want to find a code for those pictures that have the tag [IMG] in front of the link. And the tag [/IMG] will be at the end of the link.

You will get a code that looks something like this:
[IMG]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8057/8247354024_3e1e2e61d5_m.jpg[/IMG]

for this image:


You should be able to see a selection of links that you can copy and paste on the Flickr website.

I hope that helps.

Thanks for the advice...I'm on an iPhone and iPad and I just can't seem to find the direct URL of the pictures. Ah, well...I'll put them in a few posts when I get home. For now, I'll just upload the better ones to the Flickr album.

Thanks!

Steph- What a great view!! It sounds like you're having a terrific trip. How was Test Track? I know the queue is completely different, but I'm wondering if the slipped in an Hidden Mickeys. There were lots of HMs in the old queue and ride, so I hope there are some new ones to discover in the revamp! Enjoy!

Got home last night...

After six wonderful nights at the BC, I'm now sitting at my desk at school trying to catch up on tons of grading and getting ready for parent conferences tomorrow. Some highlights of the trip--I met Teena Monday and enjoyed talking with her about our kids. And Teena--I did get to ride Test Track Tuesday morning! We got up and started packing for our departure, then I checked my Touring Plans app. I saw that TT had a 5 minute wait, so I knew it was open! My wonderful DH told me to walk over and ride it, then come back and finish packing (he doesn't ride TT). It was fun! I did the single rider line. FP and single rider lines only have one choice in designing their vehicle, so it's quick. If you want to pick colors, shapes etc, you should go through the regular line. We really enjoyed dinner at Cape May Saturday night (tried to walk up Monday night, but they weren't taking any walk-ins until 7:30), and had a great time at MVMCP with the Dessert Party on Sunday.
Well, back to work!

And it just so happens that my favorite TranSiberian Orchestra song from Osborne Lights just came on the radio!!

Well, shucks, I never thought to check for hidden Mickeys! We're clearly not a very good Disney family, because we've hardly looked for them. Maybe tomorrow!

The ride was good, though. I'll be honest, I'd never ridden it before, so I didn't know what to expect. I was surprised when we went outside...I thought it was all indoors!
