I always know my BC/YC family is with me in throught and prayers.
Thank you.l
Several prayers here for your niece and family.

Robyn: you're in my prayers. My Dad passed away two days before Christmas. It's very hard to get through the holidays without thinking about our loss but at the same time we rejoice in his life and remember that this is what the season is all about. Hugs to you.

What are your thoughts? Did you use your room key to get into the parks or a separate ticket?
I tested that system when I was there last year! Thought it was very cool! They were testing it at EPCOT November 2011.

I did, too, Nannette. I really liked the feel of it.....just more welcoming or something. This was at the front of Epcot last November.

Very cool. I often keep my KTTW in a separate pocket of my parks purse. I will have to try that technique. Happy planning for your BC stay, pas130.

BCV23 and other Captain's Grille fans, it happened again. We cancelled Captain's Grille and booked Cape May . . . again. Just couldn't resist. The kids were very sweet in asking for the switch, and my husband agreed it would be a festive way to end the trip. (Hoping that outstanding spinach salad is still around on the breakfast buffet.) Some day, I will return to Captain's!!

pixarmom, it sounds like a great call since it still is important to your boys. All too soon, they probably won't care as much about character meals. Enjoy!

Oh, and for those who stay in the villas, at the annual DVC meeting reportedly it was announced that the bedspreads at all DVC resorts will be gone "by 2014." Personally, I'm thrilled!

Yep that's where we were in the front. I didn't really realize what it was and I didn't ask a lot of questions as we were late to a tour! Thought it was really cool though!!

Not bad at all. I prefer the decor and location of the Beach Club, but a full balcony is really important to me, too. I have been very lucky that both of my stays at the BC were rooms with full balconies, but I wouldn't hesitate for a moment staying at the YC.

I like the decor at BC better too. My DD8 has some sensory issues as well, and the YC lobby will hopefully feel more serene to her..and she loves balconies..the view she cares less about our only request was connecting rooms. Also we will spend most of our time on the kiddie side which is closer to the YC side from what I recall

Truly a disgusting act of violence. It makes me sick to my stomach. Those poor children...
