And getting to DtD is just fine. And you are lulled into a false sense of security that the ride back will be okay as well. Only the ride back to YC/BC is always terrible. I wanted to use the route posted here when we were stuck behind the broken down bus on our trip of doom but DH said it wouldn't be any better. He was so so so wrong. That bus ride makes people crazy. I swear otherwise normal Disney guests become possessed and behave in terrible, inexplicable ways .

I also love the suggestion from someone a few posts back to take a boat out of DtD and then grab a bus to HS and walk back or take the boat back from there. Especially if it is late and you would have to wade through the drunken crazy of Epcot Food & Wine or a normal Saturday night in the World Showcase with young children.

I have been off the boards for quite awhile - having a job will do that sometimes

I'm glad to find you all over here and look forward to reading about one of my favorites places!

At least my YC reservations are still good!
Ahhh this is NO GOOD!! I have this booked for my DD and her soon to be DH for their honeymoon... It's booked for April 23rd I believe, but we haven't received that phone call yet, and IPO told me they know nothing right now... what to do what to do!! I guess I'll break this news to DD and see what else she wants to do... So sad, but what ya gonna do!

Hope you have a great anniversary trip anyway... at least you will still be at YC and Disney!!!

I can't say I'm not a little disappointed as I've had my heart set on BC, but the resort will always be there, and now I get a free chance to experience club level . I hope all who have an upcoming trip have a wonderful time! Many thanks to Dee and all of the fabulous people who contribute to this board. I'm now off to research WL CL!
It's great that you are taking it in stride, and CL .

I will say, though, that reading this has me a little (I just saw another thread about the same thing happening to someone at YC). We are going in April so I'm imagining it'll be a busy time as well. If we get bumped, ugh, I'll be so upset. We were set to stay at BC last April and ended up moving at the last minute (totally by our choice) because we were due to be there when a large portion of SAB was to be closed. So this year is supposed to make up for that and all our plans are set around being in the Epcot area. Ugh .

Have you checked on the Fort Wilderness Segway's? I know it's kinda late in the game but might be worth a check....

Making a note of the alternate route now!!! Thanks so much!!! I knew about the boat from DTD to a resort, but after that I needed more direction!!!

Happy note, we will definitely be staying at BC come December!!! Wasn't sure of finances and really thought we would have to drop to POR (which, I wouldn't mind, but would miss the convenience of Epcot), but my DH just received word on how much his bonus would be for this year!!! Feeling less stressed by that bit of info!!! Now to wait a few more months to see if we will be blessed with a discount or FD!!!

Well her and I have actually done all the segway tours and she wasn't a fan of the Fort Wilderness Tour. Maybe the Sea Aqua Tour would be cool for them... I'll check the spreadsheet and see what I can fit in! Thanks for the suggestion Mike!

Yup, Mr. and Mrs. Janetmom loved this route on our last trip. The trip down the river from DTD to POR was so beautiful.

I was just talking to my husband about this and he agreed again that it was a great boat ride (although he feels being referred to as "Mr. Janetmom" is a bit emasculating. )

Last time we were there, they were plain brown)
Thanks!
Not sure about the plates and stuff...but DH just told me that he heard or read somewhere (here, probably! ) that the reason for the plain brown napkins was that too many people were taking extra napkins as souvenirs...so probably no plans to change them back.

We normally stay at the Poly (our first stay at BC is in June), and the trip to and from DTD is always VERY LONG. The trip back to the POLY always takes over an hour.

It doesn't make me crazy, it makes me car sick. As in, Get Me Off This Bus And I'm Never Going To Downtown Disney Again car sick. And then a few years later I'll try again, with the same result. There also seems to be a lot of traffic, so it takes forever while I'm feeling

(Haven't used the Barfing Smiley in awhile, good to know it still works.)

Thanks again Dee for a great job on the new thread! Long day but peaked in here and there but still not all the way through.

Anyways, had to show a little excitement for a double digit dance....99 days to go!!!

Do they offer the Sunken Treasure in an IV?? I may need it!

Our reservations were for April 21. Our anniversary date is April 23th!
The girl who called us stated that it was an internal issue and that there was no chance of the tour being reinstated before May. After 25 years together we are used to such things going wrong and you roll with the punches!
