The IPO team were great and and managed to work our requests out to within 15 minutes of our preferred dining times which was brilliant for us we like to dine earlier than others and still enjoy time in the parks before calling it a day.We received our confirmation email today with all our reservation numbers with each location and time and the number of people in our party is correct too (unlike the Disney Experience App info which I take with a pinch of salt now).
So if you are unsure which way to plan your ADRs and are staying CL please allow the IPO team the chance to create some magic for your vacation.
Thanks for the feedback on IPO and your reservations. You have some really fun meals and activities planned!!!

We've left our luggage with bell services lots of times - never a problem.

Just my own observations but I never saw a line for check in before 9 am.

HTH!

If we stick with our YC/BC split stay, what happens with our tix? YC is first so the tickets are on that reservation. So on day 4 when we move over to BC will I have to carry around the old KTTW cards (for tix) AND the new ones (for charging and room entry)? I'm so undecided. Only other option is do arrival night somewhere and check in at BC the first morning since BC isn't avail for arrival night. Either way we won't be able to stay put for the whole 8 nights at one resort.

Question

Hi All!

Quick question - are ADRs necessary to sitdown at Beaches & Cream?

We're considering it for a lunch in September (before Food & Wine).

The reason I ask is I REALLY dislike having to make ADRs, but I know they are a necessary evil. I'd like one sit down a day and was hoping I could "plan" for Beaches and Cream on a day where we want to have flexibility. Thanks!

Beaches and Cream actually doesn't take ADR's. It's 1st come, 1st serve. You should be all set and just hope you hit a non busy period.

So we are getting close to our 60 day online checkin window and I started thinking about room requests and realized I have no idea about what to do. After all the lurking and reading of the first page, I still am not sure if there is a good request to make, so I am appealing to all of the wonderful people on this thread for suggestions. We have waterview, as SV and GV were not available and I do know we do not want a daybed because we will have a pack n play for DD. We will be there for nine nights. Does anyone have suggestions? Favorite WV room? Area to avoid? Or am I really concerned about nothing? Thank you in advance for any tips or suggestions.

Hey everyone I've missed you all!!!!! I'm so excited to have another YC/BC stay booked so I can come back and hang out here on this thread again! We will be returning to the YC this May, our last stay was August 2012 at the BC, and our last time at the YC was March 2012. What's the latest on Hurricane Hannah's? Is it all completed? I need to scroll back through this thread and catch up on all the news. I've missed being here!!

Also a question, what's the difference between YC CL standard and GV? Previously we've always been standard, overlooking the front entrance, so I'm curious as to where we will be this time since I booked as GV. Do we have a chance for a gazebo view? Maybe a partially obstructed lake view? It was only an extra $5 per night so I figured it was worth the chance of maybe getting something better. Even though I love the room locations of standard because they are so close to the lounge.

Hope everyone is doing well! I'm going to go read pages and try to catch up!

Hey, back!!!

So glad you have another visit planned. Can't wait for your live report!



I think all but one of the YC CL GV rooms overlook the gazebo. Not sure exactly where the other room is. There was some fairly detailed discussion on this thread about the YC CL GV rooms, but I don't recall exactly where. Probably 50-75 pages ago, perhaps a search of YC gazebo view would help sort it out.

HH is back in business. Pixarmom did a recent photo tour. I believe I have linked her post on the first page (check the Dining Section post)

I just went back and read a ton of pages I saw the pictures! Can't wait to enjoy a nice cold Sunken Treasure at the new bar! It looks like those lights above would give a nice atmosphere in the evening. I can't wait to get back!!!!!

I will try to find that gazebo view info

:
Yes...our new dates are arrival on 5/17 and checking out on 5/27. Now that we have 2 extra days I would love some suggestions on things to do....other than visit the parks. I think we will need a day or two to just chill and relax ( we aren't young like most of you here on this board, our 10 grandchildren can verify that for you!)
