I hope your family heals quickly, at least you have a little more time to get better....Are you on Tamilflu?
I hope everyone in your families are feeling better soon and you are all healthy for your trips.

That's always a huge fear of ours, getting sick before vacation!

Or is it a Disney oversight? I'm having a minor freak out that SAB won't be open when we're there. Thanks for any words of comfort

Hopefully Ninja Mom talked you to a safe place. I wanted to add that no, I haven't heard anything and yes, I agree with NM. A refurb would not typically be scheduled for April and would only happen if there was something outside of the ordinary that couldn't be avoided.

I think someone was asking about the Magic+ and when it would be coming to the BC. I have 67 days to go and I just signed into My Disney Experience. It said, I have 8 days until online check-in! So, anyone know what I should expect? Will I then be reserving my fast passes? Not sure what to expect with any of it! I'm pretty excited to be checking in next week though!
I could do without this blizzard but my kids are careful laying out their pajamas (inside out) in hopes Friday there will be a snow day in preparation!!! Lol

For all my friends in the path of the big storm, be safe.

Cook up a batch of chowder, plunk yourself in front of the computer and obsess about your upcoming trips.

Speaking of trips... In about a week, I will be away for a few days. Not Disney, a bit south-er of the border.

Didn't want anyone to worry when you don't see the early morning message(s) of the day from me.

It's still up in the air but hopefully we'll decide really soon!

Looking for opinions and information about luggage transfers between the resorts. Due to our flights, we have added a day before our BC trip and a day after our trip at POP. So far we plan to take our luggage to Bell services at POP and have them transfer it to the BCV. When we check in to BCV, do we need to go to Bell services there and ask to have our luggage sent to our room or will it be done automatically? We will do the same thing in reverse when we leave from the BC and go back to POP. Next, we are switching from BCV to BC CL, we plan on checking in early and have breakfast at the lounge. If our rooms are ready, we were planning on calling a bellman to take our luggage from BCV to BC CL, will they do this or does our luggage go to Bell services again? If so, then I have the same question as before, is the transfer done automatically when our room is ready or do I have to call them?

Is there a better way to do all these transfers? Any ideas?

Sorry for the rambling.

Thanks for any input.

Good questions. Giving this post a little more visibility so it doesn't get lost in between the important storm and chowdah discussions.

I know many of the veteran posters here have done luggage transfers between resorts and within the resort, so hopefully they will share their insight/experience/advice with you.

Disney will move your bags for you, but we found it was much easier to just hop in a cab with our bags and head for the next resort. If Disney does the transfer, your bags won't get there until late afternoon, I just liked the piece of mind that my bags were already at my second resort and we could get stuff out of them if we needed something.

Going from BCV to BC should be much easier. I'd go down and check in for your BC stay, see if the room is ready (and since it probably won't be) I'd stop at Bell Services and ask them to send someone up to your villa room. That way, you know exactly where your bags are going: either your new room or to Bell Services storage.

If your bags do have to go into storage for the morning, they'll give you a claim ticket and when you get to your new room you call and give them the ticket number and they'll bring everything up to you.

Hope this helps!

We are heading to the BC for the first time in 16 days!!! So excited! We usually stay at the Wilderness Lodge and have always loved it there, but for this trip we wanted to try something different. I am really looking forward to being able to walk to Epcot, and the kids can't wait to swim. Has anyone else been to both WL and BC and can offer advice as to what differences we should expect? Thanks!

I guess I would say "Not close to Concierge Lounge, please" or "Away from Concierge Lounge, please"

I think someone posted earlier that there is just one elevator bank and it is close to the lounge, so a room away from there would presumably have a little less traffic. Still no guarantee about how quiet your neighbors will be though.

I haven't been to the club level area at YC, so I don't know the size of the hallways or how long a walk it is from the end of the furthest hallway to the club lougne/elevators.

Transfers between the resorts are done mid-afternoon. So when you get back to your resort room, anytime around 4ish I'd say, you should just call Bell Services and ask them to deliver your bags. It is NOT done automatically. Only automatic luggage delivery is if your bags arrived via Magical Express.

When you change BCV to BC CL, it's basically the same thing unless your second room is ready right away. If it is, then they can just make the change when you check-out and check-in.

In all cases, you MUST be in the room to accept the luggage.
