So bundle up, and stay comfy!

I agree that it is a different kind of cold but my Dad who lives in West Palm Beach has called me and wanted sympathy for their 45 degree temps when I have a blizzard raging outside.

I opened my garage door, took a picture and emailed it to him and said that I would trade his cold weather with him if he wanted to deal with this instead. He stopped complaining for a while.

With 5 people in a hotel room my husband is very good at finding hiding spots like this in the hotels that we stay at. His all time favorite was the Wilderness lodge with it's plethora of 'hidey holes". When booking this last BC stay he was bummed that we weren't going back to the WL because he missed his hidey holes there. After he found this one at the Villas he was good to go!

Thanks MickeyT!

That room looks so wonderful.

I gotta admit I have a soft spot for WL and all the little hiding spots. I had a terrible stomach bug on the last day of one of our trips to WL. We didn't need to leave on DME until 4ish, but there was no way I could go to a park. Soooo, we arranged for a Noon check out, and the boys headed off to MK while I stayed at the Lodge. I was super sick, but just moved from couch to couch relaxing my afternoon away. I wouldn't want to be that sick again, but I could easily relax all day throughout WL.

There may not be hammocks, but there are plenty of wonderful beach chairs that would make for a fabulous escape!


Teena - I hope you find some good ways to stay warm this weekend!

Thanks!
This info is from our last trip in 2011. Only 1 GV CL had a daybed. We had a party of 5 and were lucky to get it. At that time, there was a lot of chatter on here that families of 5 in GV CL were stuck getting rollaways. I kept my fingers crossed that we did not get stuck with the rollaway. Our room was 5636.

At that time all, of the GV CL had full dormer balconies.

This go around our family of 5 could not reserve CL GV because the max oocupancy is now listed at 4, not matter the bed configuration.

Hey DisneyLifeMel I was in the same boat as you and I was stressing BIG time I want to do CL so bad after reading all the rave reviews for it. However, after talking with my DH and a good friend, and "planning" our ADRs, we are still going to do DP again I am definitely thinking as a reward when we are completely out of debt in 3 years, CL it will be

I did find a great excel spreadsheet on a website from one of the dining threads that also helped me really figure out what was best for our family Let me know if you are interested in the spreadsheet

Where can you get a quick breakfast at they YC. I know about the market place. Is there any place on the YC side to grab something quick? This will be our 4th stay at the resort, but we have always stayed Club level. At the moment all that is available for our stay with AP discount is a LV club level, and that is over my budget. Thanks.

There isn't a quick service location at the YC, but I think you can get coffee and some danish at Ale and Compass lounge. I think Pixar mom had some pictures earlier in the thread that said there is a decent quick service spot at the Swolphin that was a fairly close walk from the YC.

I keep meaning to ask this this question, but forget by the time I am at my computer or phone. Do the fridges at the BC have a small freezer section? My husband has issues with his foot sometimes and needs to ice it. The ones at AoA last year did have the freezer part and it really came in handy.

Thanks MickeyT. I called MS and added a garden view request to our room. Hopefully, the request is granted!

Thanks! We are only 4, but the boys are restless sleepers. The reports seem to be consistent...it is just weird that the Disney booking webpage lists 2Q+daybed, occupancy 4. Doesn't jive.

Dont know if it helps but there are hammocks at the beach between the swan and dolphin resorts. My older kids have used them when I took the youngest to play on the climbing frame bit It's maybe a 5 minute walk from the YC/BC
