That sounds like a table that I'd enjoy being under!

As promised for those wondering about the Epcot Segway Tour... I emailed the IPO and this is the response I received:

Update on Keep Moving Forward. Guests have only been contacted up until March 10th to advise of the cancellation of the Keep Moving Forward Tour. Please advise any guest beyond that date that if their tour is to be cancelled they will be contacted by a Disney Reservation Center cast member.
No further information is available at this time. So we hope this is just for a renovation , but again we are not sure . You can call the WDW Disney Tour line if you have further questions . But this is all we have been told I'm so sorry we don't have better information to for you .

So there you have it... I know there will be 2 very upset honeymooners if they cancel that!!

Ds is sooo jealous! Big Bang is his favorite tv show and Leonard is his favorite character.

Why is that whenever we stay BC CL no stars show up! Of course if my dd's had ever been there when Justin Bieber was there they probably would have passed out!

They keep the classes pretty small - around 10 or so.

There was one lady in our group that fell off her segway. I don't really know what she was doing when she did that, but she got up and got back on it. And you get to wear those awesome helmets. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

I can't answer your question about entering through the gateway - we were coming from POFQ, so we went through the front gate.
Kacie thank you so much for responding. The Segway tours look awesome, we some some people on the tour when we had an early am Akershus breakfast. How long does the tour last? Did you get to see any behind the scene stuff? I'm so clumsy, I'd be the one to fall off!!!

Thanks

Also, I had read on another website that the Epcot Segway tours have been canceled. No word on the Ft. Wilderness tours.

The jealousy is overwhelming me right now. I have had a crush on him most of my life, I like nerds I guess.

.... and I spoke with a CM who assured me that it was a public space and that all guests of the Yacht Club, Beach Club and Beach Club Villas could use that space.

I'm sure there are a ton of things we all think are true that turn out to have changed. It was good that the point was raised as to whether or not other guests staying at the resort would have access, as we now know the rules and we have a chance to follow them. That's what this thread is all about... Information.

Rock Paper Scissors Lizzard Spock! Love the show... I imagine they'll be enjoying their time there.

Hey All -

I'm sure this is answered on one of these 220 pages, but in the interest of time I'm hoping someone can help... Do all the rooms at BC have a daybed? If not, what are my odds of getting one if I request it? We have a standard view room. One more question- should I call the resort directly to make a request? When? Or ask my travel agent? Can I make a request if I do online check-in? Thanks!

Nope, not all BC rooms have daybeds. Not sure what the odds of getting one are, but you could certainly request one. (Obviously not guaranteed). You can't call the resort directly....but you can make requests through CRO...or maybe TA??? I've never used a TA, so not sure of their "scope". On line check in only has limited options to chose from in the way of requests, so you may not find your request on there. Hope that helps.

Great way to spend your 40th- lots of helpful info.

I noticed your ID as "reel"mom- are you an irish dancing family?
