Quick question. Forgive the crass-ness, but can we ship wine to ourselves at a Disney resort?


....We like wine.

Since then I have convinced him he needs to have one last family holiday before he goes to Universityand my DH's niece has asked if she can join us on our trip also, so now it will be me, DH, DS18, DD16, and DN16, which makes us a party of five.

I was concerned about all 5 of us having enough space in a YC/BC room, and worried about not getting a daybed, so we are considering changing to the Poly instead for the bigger rooms and a guaranteed daybed.

The Poly looks lovely and the rooms will all have been refurbished by then, however, we really did have our hearts set on the YC/BC - my DH is a rock fan and wants to have time to enjoy the Sounds Like Summer concerts, and we were looking forward to walking to Epcot and DHS.

For anyone who has stayed at the YC/BC as a family of 5 (adults/teenagers) did you feel cramped in the room or did you feel comfortable with the amount of space?

Thanks for your help, we are so confused and would like some advice.

I have seen the pictures of the two types of daybeds and the rollaway cot on page 1 - the small daybed and the rollaway cot don't look big enough for an adult or an old teenager to sleep on - what happens if you get a room with one of these options and there is no where for the fifth person to sleep? Am i panicking over nothing are these bigger than they look? My DS is almost 6' and my DD and DN are 5'7".
In December DH and I stayed in a room with our 3 teen boys all of whom are tall (5'9 and up!). We had a sofa bed and we all fit in the room nicely so no worries. Many parties of five book and stay in the Beach Club/Yacht Club so you are worrying for nothing. If there is not a "day bed" in your room then you can request a roll away bed from the resort.

Really, you will be fine.

What worked for us was a rule that you had to clean up your clutter before you left the room. Everybody was responsible for not letting the room become overwhelmed with stuff that was left out. All it took was 15 minutes of organizing and then it was all clear and we could enjoy the space. If you are slightly organized you will find the amount of space is fine. If you are the type of family that leaves stuff out all over then even the rooms at the Poly will prove challenging

Most people spend the majority of their time at the resort and parks and not in the room anyway. Before we leave on a WDW trip we have all this time to worry about things that in all probability won't be a problem.

That's about the best way I can say it. Good luck with your decision and get ready to enjoy your trip!

I know you can't send Liquor/wine through the US postal service. If you can find a store to ship it to the resort I think you are in business!

"Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all that we will know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you and I sigh."

Okay, I think I made a decision.l

The 30% off Disney Visa discount is great. But. . . . if the AP rate is even just a little bit better we are upgrading back to CL!!!

I'm trying to be happy with the gv room but when I think about our trip I'm really missing CL.

Keep your fingers crossed for even a little better discount. I've just about got DH convinced to go back to our beloved BC CL. A little "Disney math" is all I need now!

I see what you are doing here! You mentioned in a previous post that wine may be your ticket to a new trip!

Unfortunately, I don't know the answer.

Do any of the grocery delivery service companies deliver beer or wine?

How expensive is the wine you can get by the bottle in France?

I know there are mail order companies that will ship to your home. I wonder if they would ship to a resort.
(I know this because my credit card account was breached and we Discovered it when we received a note from a mail order wine company thanking us for the bottle of Dom Perignon "we" ordered)

Good luck!

Also wanted to mention that the gift shop in YC, Fittings and Farings Clothes and Notions, had quite a selection of wines when we visited last year.

Many more than I had seen in other resort shops, including BC.

I am thinking with it being a convention resort they have more guests who would be wanting/willing to buy there.

Sorry not going soon enough to report back to you what they have ... maybe someone else can do some quick recon.

Enjoy!

Again, not sure of the prices. I wonder if someone going in the next week or so can check it out.

Here are a couple of pictures from Fittings and Fairings. circa 2011, I think

I think you're going to pay a much higher price at the BC/YC gift shop.

If I'm ordering beer or wine from garden grocer I also order anything that's a mess to pack - shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste etc. When we aren't staying CL I order some breakfast items too.

HTH!

Have a nice ice cream treat at Beaches & Cream, or just sit back in the lobby with a cup of coffee and people watch (nothing like seeing how excited all the kids are before heading to the parks)
Thank you for the great ideas. Does Beaches & Cream have a walk up window, or do you have to book a reservation?
