The Hess gas station across from the Boardwalk sells beer much cheaper than at the BC and YC. Not sure about wine. Lots of people take cabs to Super Target and load up on beer and wine. The price of a cab is usually worth it because of the price difference.

Remember, we're starting at POR for 6 nights, so a walk to Hess isn't going to happen. I think Garden Grocer might be the ticket. The prices seem very similar to want I'd pay around here, plus a $14 delivery fee. Seems reasonable.

There is a lady who has a business that will shop for you and deliver your purchase to your resort the day you check in. She'll buy groceries, mouse ears, etc. If you're on FB, search for Kelly's PDS (Personal Disney Shopper) or check out her website at kellyspds.com. We were going to use her last summer but decided to go with the dining plan instead.....

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".
We took a "last family trip before college" with our family of five, two daughters and a son who is 6' 4". He always slept in the daybed on our many family trips and it was fine. We almost always got the day bed. I remember getting a roll away only one time. And the rooms always felt large enough. It's Disney, after all. Any inconvenience is worth it.

Anyone got any idea of how to get a good view at BCVs? We're looking for a one bedroom villa and would love a water view, last time we stayed there we were in room 434 (a two bedroom unit) and had a fab view, I'd love to stay very close to there again. I really don't want a woods view, the thought of it is freaking me out, all them crawlies in the trees . I do realise that I can look at the room maps and work out the odds but I'm wondering how often people get their requests met? If the chances are low I think I'll have to go for the BWVs but I really love the quiet pool and the ease of getting to the carpark at the BCVs.

You can't book a reservation at Beaches & Cream, so you don't have to worry about that, but you do sometimes have to worry about a long wait.

Beaches & Cream does have a walk-up window with a limited menu, though, so you can certainly try that if the restaurant is too crowded.

Would it be easier to take a cab to the Hess station if i only wanted water, beer and wine, and have him wait for me while I grabbed some things?

Certainly easier than walking back with bulky items!

Don't know what the cab fare will be, shouldn't be much. I have a cab fare estimator in the first post of this thread (under the transportation heading).

My plan for water, I think, is to get some gallon jugs from The Marketplace and use refillable bottles to bring to the parks. Someone recently checked the price and I think they are $2.99

But if you are getting beer and wine anyway, and taking a cab, it won't be difficult to add a case of water to your purchases.

Yes it would but I don't know if Hess has wine.

Off to work this morning. Very sad to wake up and know Jeanne is 3000 miles away instead of in Florida.

Can't wait to see what all the guests got in their easter baskets.

I know you must miss her already, sorry

Have a Happy Easter (maybe the guests will give you a chocolate egg or two)
