We started our day with our early ADR at Crystal Palace. Found out quickly that 3 showing up for a reservation for 2 was no problem. Just like NM we were able to add DGS to our ressie's. Maybe last week when everything was packed it may have been a different outcome. The gentleman in front of me had a reservation for 15 and 2 showed up. Guess as long as someone shows up they will try to work with it.

We finished the meal just as the park was opening. We were one of the first to pull FP’s for SM. Grabbed them and went ahead and did a walk on. We rode Peter Pan, iasmw, got FP for the Under the Sea, rode BTMRR, POTC, JC, SM (again) and rode Under the Sea. Still had time to do Buzz and Monsters Laugh Floor. All this before 1:30. Note: HM was down all morning. This trip has set a record for the number of broken down rides.

After a short nap we wrapped the day up at HS. More rides and all around fun. Another Disney first. I ate a Mac n Cheese Hot Dog from Fairfax Fare. It’s where they sell the turkey legs so I guess you might say I chose the healthy option! Taste just like it sounds. Just all on the same sandwich. Back at BLT in time to watch Wishes from my third different vantage point in three different days.

We’re now getting ready for a trip to the airport for Pierce. It will be down to Lee Ann and I for a couple nights. Have dinner booked at Narcoossee’s tonight for a little adult dining. Just got sticker shock ($$$$) when I checked out their menu. May just do some deluxe resort hopping while we are on the monorail portion of this trip.

Well time for some Lucky Charms and Cheerios and a dose of Orlando traffic. No Crystal Palace this morning. But should be back by early afternoon. With the temp’s being close to 80 may do a January swim. Will let you know…..

And to keep this on track with Y&BC theme....We will be Home (BCV's) in two more days. So if anyone has any resort specific questions/photo request let me know. I'm no Teena but I'll do the best I can. You know I love to explore!
Are you running this weekend? Which race(s)? Wishing you good luck and fun!!!
I'm running the Goofy but staying at Poly because the monorail is so easy for getting to the start line...
I will be at BC on Friday afternoon for some running meet-ups and then at YC for a post-marathon celebratory dinner at Yachtsman!

big thank you... sorry posted this on main resorts board by mistake

I just wanted to write a big thank you to those on this board with great suggestions and feedback. We were so used to Grand Floridian but decided to try Beach Club for our last minute trip (week before Xmas). Wow... we had the most amazing time. We would go to bus early in the morning (no crowd) and short walk to station with no trouble at all (for MK). It was so nice walking to Epcot each day or afternoon and taking the boat to DHS.

Even though it was freezing that week(we drove down from NE so we had our winter coats.. thank goodness), the kids still got to take a swim on the day before we left. They loved it.. met other kids to play with and had a blast.

The room was great. We had a garden view but when I checked in I asked the front desk person if they could upgrade us to Lagoon view. They had two Lagoon view rooms avail. We loved it... had a great view of Boardwalk and rooms were so close to steps to main lobby. The rooms were in great condition and we liked the decor.

I was so surprised how quiet it was at night too(in our room). We didn't hear much noise even though we were close to lobby.

The Marketplace was convenient and staff very helpful and friendly. Even walking around the property... staff was super super nice.

I already booked our next trip in June this year (didn't tell DH yet),

Thanks Beach Club.

We will be moving over to BCV's Thursday. We are at BLT now and can completely understand the monorail start thing.

We are all (six of us) are doing the 1/2 this year. We will be doing our annual Kona early dinner at 6 Friday. Ironic huh.... I think we figured out we were at Kona at the same time one year.

And good luck on that Goofy thing. Utmost respect for you guys.

We are headed toward our second WDW vacation and second stay at YC. We loved it so much the first time, hubby didn't even consider a different resort. So, we will be YC CL 7/29 - 8/10. Wooohooo!

Good luck with the half!

Looking for opinions, I think I may try and talk DH into CL, and drop the dining plan for our May trip. We would come out $200 cheaper than what we have now, and could use that money to put towards CS lunches in the parks. I know for sure he would want to keep a couple of our dinner ressies. (BOG - although we could eat lunch there instead...and Le Cellier).

My question is this, with BC CL is there enough to make breakfasts and enough snacks at the dinner hour? Then we could make due with lunches that are always very filling anyway.

THanks!!

My family (all adults) stayed CL in Sept and did breakfast and dinner in the lounge and table service at lunch. We found it to be plenty of food and we saved money by not purchasing dinners and adult beverages. We loved it so much we are doing it again in May
