Toasters!

Is there a toaster which would be available for us to use in the morning? I am assuming there is not one in the standard rooms. We will be at Beach Club in 7 weeks!!!!!!! YAY!

Welcome Back, Dee! I visited your "other board" while you were at Barcelo - as I mentioned earlier, it's in the running for us again next year. So I enjoyed my Barcelo research while you enjoyed Barcelo! Can't wait to hear more details!

Wanted to add a plug for the new Hurricane Hanna's refill mug station - love it!!! So much better than the old HH. Instead of locating the station between the CS and the bar, it has a new convenient location in an alcove near the condiments. After staying at many resorts and refilling many mugs, I'd rate the new HH refill station as my favorite!

So my question is, is there any chance that there will be some cancellations and a room would open up if I keep on calling back and checking? Or am I dreaming? Any advice, opinions, is much welcome! Thanks!
Of course, I agree with Robyn and Teena that you should keep checking back for availability at BC! But if it doesn't work out, I LOVED YC. The guaranteed full balcony, proximity to the boat launch and to the Dolphin dining options, easy access to the zero depth sandy area at SAB - all great. I did miss proximity to BC Marketplace, but it only takes a few minutes to get there. And I really loved the room decor at YC - maybe not as much as BC, but much more than I expected. They truly are sister resorts and we didn't feel far away from BC when we stayed at YC.

We've stayed in both. I really like the GV category at BC and would not pay for the water view. GV is a nice in-between category and while some GV views are better than others, I've always been really happy with our garden view rooms. The problem with paying for a water view at BC is that it could mean many different things. Many of them are not direct water views, and some overlook the pool.

Is there another playground somewhere on the property. With a 2 and 6 year old, we like our playgrounds for some down time.
As others have mentioned, the playground at SAB is no longer there. It was on my photo mission list a couple years ago and when I went to take a photo, it was gone! I asked a CM at SAB and he said they removed it to make more room for lounge chairs and there are no plans to replace it.

I just wanted to put in a plug for the swan/dolphin playground - our youngest son LOVES it and I like the nice view available to parents while little ones play there. BWI also has a playground, and he likes that one, but the setting is less relaxing and it's in a small area that becomes relatively crowded quickly.

I commented on a playground thread once about playground options, and other posters believed that playgrounds are for the exclusive use of each resorts' guests, but I'm not sure. We've only used the Dolphin playground when staying at Dolphin and BWI when staying at BWI, so I haven't noticed.

Another Beach - Vero!

We're heading down to Florida again next month, stopping in Vero Beach and staying at the Kimpton. We're visiting Disney's Vero Beach Resort for lunch and to check it out. If any DVC members (or others interested in Vero) have photo or other mission requests, please let me know! We're AP holders traveling to Florida without plans to stop at WDW, but my husband has been a great sport on our many Disney trips, so no complaints. I always miss my missions when we're on non-Disney trips.

Love it - thank you!!! That's it - you've encouraged me to begin planning an imaginary trip before our APs expire in April.

I think there is a toaster at the Marketplace. My husband would use it to toast his bagels in the morning.

Only one more week for me! Dancing banana, dancing banana, dancing banana (hmmm, doesn't quite convey my excitement when I have to type it out, but I'm on the iPad, so that's the best I can do)!
My trip has become more of a family reunion than I had originally planned. We started out bringing my aunt with us - she has a pretty tough life, so we like to treat her to a break from the real world whenever we can. Now my sister and nephew are tagging along as well. They just decided to come last week and are staying at Shades of Green (the BC was full by the time they decided to join us). Anyway, since my sister won't have use of the magical express, she will be renting a car. Does anyone know if guests of BC guest can get any type of parking pass if they are visiting BC guests one day? We are planning on at least one dinner at Beaches and Cream (i have been dreaming of the day I would finally have enough people with me to finish the kitchen sink - my husband and i can put down some ice cream, but my 2 and 7 year-olds just don't pull their weight), and I would love for them to be able to drive over.

My sisters were staying at CBR and they were able to drive over to see us at the BCV'S.

The breakfast buffet looks great--thanks for posting! Does anybody know if there is a kids price on the buffet? It looks like it is the same price for everyone....

Yes! That's a toaster in the corner next to the microwave:



I took this photo in October 2012, and it's been there for a while, so I bet it will stick around through your stay!

I know we will be hungry when we arrive, but since we won't have park tickets for that day I wasn't sure what to do about dinner. Since Cape May took reservations I thought I would go with that. Maybe I should rethink that. Any other suggestions for dinner on arrival night?

Thanks for your help.

Another vote here for the Captains Grille! It's got great food and a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, just the thing to sooth your nerves after a travel day.

I'm not so sure about that... That link was never fixed was it??

Mike was also running around peeping in all your 'List Maven' drawers. If you are missing any chocolate you might want to check Mike's pockets for Hershey Bars wrappers. We smelled chocolate on his breath every time he posted so your secret stash may be a little low. You know how those "list baby sitters" eat up all the good stuff when you are gone!

We did miss you and I'm happy to report there were no fights or snarky posts. Janet managed to contain herself (well almost!) and Nannette is off on a trip so that limits her ability to get in trouble (we hope!). There were a few posters who got caught in the liquor cabinet (jennyjinx3, 333disneymom, Scott MC and catho72) so we may be a little low on Sunkin Treasure ingredients! Next time be sure to lock the liquor cabinet because you know how we can get on this thread!

wdwinfo has it listed for 8.99. I also just got my disney visa benefits info in the mail today and if you use it, you get a 10% discount on breakfast and lunch.

Always stirring up trouble aren't you? You just can't leave well enough alone. Dee doesn't need to know everything that went on here while she was gone, and you don't need to be the official BC/YC tattle tale.

Sadly, when poeple like Scott encourage you, you just can't help yourself.

Scott - try not to encourage Ninja Mom in the future.


If anyone sees a spot of trouble POFQ next week, we know who will be having fun in the centre of it all!
