Here now.....a few observations

This is by NO means a complaint thread, we are having a great time. Just a few things all 12 of us have noticed collectively...

The soap in the bathrooms make your hands smell like vomit.

No issues with any ecv people. All very polite. A few stroller issues, nothing too major and my ankles will heal.

The BTGs are out of control.

We are staying at akl and blt. we have seen a ton of the cheerleader groups in the parks and have not encountered an issue.

We do a lot of ts. For the most part, the service has been mediocre at best. So disappointing. Narcoossees was wonderful as always.

Didn't think I'd run into BTGs this time of year.
Which TS, specifically?

We arrive on Friday.

That's the antibacterial.

I guess bacteria don't like the smell of vomit, either...

The weather is much warmer than expected, so we are washing shorts a lot.

Pin trading is really disappointing. All of the disney cms have the same crappy old pins on their lanyards.

Cms were doing an amazing job of getting people out of mk who didn't purchase a mvmcp ticket. Better than I have ever seen.

B&tb is amazing. Loved it lots.

In that order from worst to least worst. The others we have done have been good. Servers seem annoyed, can't be bothered.

I'm here now too and I agree with these completely - especially the pin trading.

We just got back and witnessed several rude encounters due to inconsiderate ECV folks. However, the number of ECV's we saw was up in general, thus making the population of rude users within that group increase as well.

My grandmother could never even imagine being able to go to a place like Disney World if not for ECV's, so I am not bashing ALL ECV folks. Just kind of disappointing!

The BTG's were INSANE last week. Hope it gets better for those of you there now and arriving soon!

Here now also.

Table service has been decent in the main, although I was quite disappointed with our first ever Le Cellier experience.

Have not encountered any BTG's over the last five days.

Have encountered lots of cheerleader groups, only recognizable due to their matching shirts, and not their behavior. In fact, we have only warm and fuzzy feelings so far.
Great vacation.

I noticed that most of the sinks in the park had really low water pressure, too. Made it harder to rinse the soap off!

Also here now... Dh and I had great service at le cellier this past week however I was really disappointed with service at the following:
50s ptc- usually love it but this server didn't make it fun
Hddr- another big surprise for me server was just blah
Worst was rose and crown server was absolute worst!!! She got mad and snappy when my 70 year old grandma asked her to sing happy birthday to me, refusing and stating that illuminations was present enough

We can also agree that yes a lot of btg mostly at magic kingdom, but cheer and dance groups were fine. No long lines inI any park
