Yay for your luggage, Dee.

Thanks about Periwigs. I will check it out in March but am worried that it may have closed for good. The salon at the GF still isn't open last I knew and I read that the salon at the CR (supposedly haunted by a friendly ghost) is closing, too. I know Disney took over control of the spas so I imagine the company that used to run the salons and spas is out of the salons, too.

For quite a few years, I had my hair flat ironed at Periwigs and Ivy Trellis every trip. Lovely treat to combat the Fl humidity. Haven't been for a year and a half due to chemo and then very short hair but will need help next month. If no one knows soon, I'll try calling the old number or WDW info.

Dee - Welcome Back!

You were missed, although Mike did a stellar job!

Love that you travel with your own sunken treasure recipe!

Periwigs is now part of the new Health Club. Not sure what services are offered now but it is one big combined place.

We stayed at the BCR in 2011 for the first time and had an amazing vacation. We loved everything about the resort and couldn't have had a better experience. My only complaint was about Periwigs. I wanted my daughter and I to get our nails done early in the week. We stopped by twice just to ask about their services and prices, set up an appointment, etc. No one ever helped us, looked at us, said hello to us....nothing. We politely stood there for 5 minutes the first time and about 15 minutes the second time trying to give them plenty of time to come over and ask us what we needed. Even the other customers were starting to stare at us with sympathy. It was really frustrating. After standing there for 15 minutes without a hello I decided we did not want any services done by them. No disney magic for us there.

I was going to comment on this too. Travelling with a "laminated" drink recipe card is definitely showing off your obssesive side. All the more funny since your not that much of a drinker.

How very rude. I almost always called for an appointment but never witnessed that kind of treatment. No magic indeed.

What are the hours for SAB during April? How about the quiet pool?

Surprisingly, the quiet pools are open 24 hours a day. Let's hope the people using these pools in the late evening and early morning hours respect the quiet part!

SAB hours are a little tougher to determine. At one point there were set hours of 10 am to 10 pm, but I think the pool managers have gone back to hours based on weather, crowd level, time of year, etc. So in the winter the pool may close as early as 8 pm (anyone ever seen it close earlier?) and in the summer, maybe it will be open until 11 some evenings.

My guess for April is 10 pm, but that is not based on anything that has been documented.

[QUOTE=natebenma;47598609]Tesoro Hundido (Sunken Treasure)


As I mentioned earlier, I brought a laminated copy of the recipe for the Sunken Treasure with me to Mexico and found a bartender to make it for me.

I think that I have finally met someone more OCD than me I hope that you all had a fun trip!

Great trip, too short, trying to weed through about 1500 photos.

Tried to do a quick sweep of questions on the thread while at the airport and this morning. Here are a couple that I'm not sure were addressed:


Refill mugs- someone did post a link about locations. I believe Ale & Compass at YC is still a refill location until noon- I haven't heard differently.


The Marketplace (BC)
Ale & Compass (YC lobby, until noon)
Hurricane Hanna's (by SAB)
Beaches and Cream takeout window

If anyone knows about others let me know. I may need to revise the posts on Page 1.




I know you have been trying to get this info for awhile now and are not having any luck. I am too!!! I can't seem to get room numbers or even how many of these rooms there are.

Have you tried emailing IPO to ask them where the YC Deluxe rooms are located? I think it is a valid question for them.
Don't know why I didn't think of that Natebenma. I just sent an email to IPO. I'll let you know what they say.

The pool at BCV actually has hours. ....7am to 11 pm. I suspect the "quiet" pools at BC and YC have the same but keep forgetting to check.
