65 Days....I have to make it 65 more days until I am enjoying a Sunken Treasure while sitting at SAB. I don't know how I am going to make it!

At least I can do on-line check in on Monday....something to keep me occupied.

According to this sign, there are set hours, however I wouldn't be surprised if those are merely "guidelines". If people experience hours that are different (expanded) from these, particularly in the summer, please report back.

After reading this, I feel like I have very little to contribute today (see #1, below!)

1) HH and drinks. Here's where my complete relaxation on this latest trip caused me to fail. I did not ask about HH hours! I did not take any photographs of my drinks at the pool! I actually FORGOT to bring my mug to house grey goose slushie and for the first time ever, I actually drank it out of the silly plastic glass! (And there is photographic evidence of it too!)

2) Dining plan. We love love love CL, but do not love the dining plan. The reasons have been changing over the past several years, but at this point, it's because we usually do two TS per day, and no meal plan fits that. I usually order appetizers instead of entrees - not a good fit. We hardly ever order dessert with our meal. (We wasted a TON of desserts when we used the DP.) Our middle son (12) goes between adult entrees and kids' menu items, but we'd have to pay the adult price for him. We do very few fixed price and character meals at this point. We love signatures, and that would cost two credits every time. We like small frequent snacks instead of big meals. So we use TIW for discounts instead, but even if we didn't have APs, we'd still just pay OOP. If the dining plan fits your eating styles and preferences, it can be great. But definitely look over the menus and do some rough calculations to see if it fits for your family!

You pull out and highlight a set a quotes like those (which all just happened to be posted today) and it would appear that this person has a problem. But I wouldn't start to worry unless said person is going onto an entirely DIFFERENT web forum and posting a "Drink of the Day" Countdown. Then I would seriously be concerned.

Hi again,

I asked a couple pages back but I think my question got lost in the shuffle, no worries at all though. I'm trying to figure out a grocery order and I'm wondering if anyone knows what the BC marketplace kids turkey sandwich has on it and if it's premade or made to order??? I'm trying to figure out what my little one will eat.

Thanks so much, can't wait to check in next week and try a new resort ))

Just popping in for a quick hello. I've had the post vacation blues and its Girl Scout cookie overload with me being cookie mom. Just wanted to say that I am loving seeing everyone's pictures, - I've got a few pages of the thread to catch up on. Was wishing Nemo would hit us so I could have a few days in the house but no luck!
Our next trip was going to be in August but we are thinking of skipping August and now doing January with a week in the world and then a week cruise.
it just seems so far away!

I don't know the answer to your question about the kids sandwich but according to this review of Beach Club Marketplace from last year (scroll about halfway down the review), sandwiches on the regular menu are made to order so you can leave things off that you don't want. I don't know if it's the same with the kids items, but I'm sure if you ask they can make it how you like.

Thank you so much for posting this!!!

Both in response to the original question and also because it has a lot of really useful info about the ingredients in a lot of the items. Very helpful for guests with food allergies or special diet needs.

The blog has links to places to find out all about the ingredients in the baked goods at the Marketplace (and other Disney places) and also lists a number of resources at Disney for families with specific food issues.

I'll link this to the first page as well as to the Marketplace threads we have.

Thanks, again!!!

We are taking the plunge and going without dining plan this time!

We are staying CL this year and have decided not to do the dining plan. Last time at Club Level, we found it to be too much food along with the offerings of the lounge. We had the regular plan with one sit down and one counter service. Also found the our day was always rotating around eating. Got really tired of all of the desserts- can't believe I am saying that but sometimes would have preferred an appetizer instead. Found it hard to get it all in without feeling like we were leaving credits on the table - yes, you can go to the Marketplace and use up the snack credits for the trip home, but we really didn't need all that food.

We did a mock menu to see what the $$$ would be. Granted can't predict what we actually will eat but compared it to our habits from the last trip. It looks like it will be about $500 less for our family of 5. I picture us just going over to EPCOT and having counter service when we feel motivated. Made 3 dinner ADRs for our favs. Also, some of the portions are large and I could easily split with hubby, especially when it's hot and no one has a big appetite.

If you priced it out with ordering everything that comes with the dining plan, the dining plan is probably cheaper. But again for us, we wouldn't normally order everything that comes with the plan, so that is where our savings comes in.

We love the aspect of grabbing breakfast and going. Also the snacks are plentiful and met all 5 of our needs.
