Luggage carts are only allowed to be used by valet and bellmen.

I used undercover tourist a few times... most recently a friend ordered her park hopper pass through them and just received it in the mail, took about 2 weeks for her to get it. Also if you subscribe to mousesavers.com theres a code in there for undercover tourist tickets discount, and they ship for free!!

Hi Erika!

I'm jealous that you just booked Ohana , I've been looking since I booked my trip with my aunt & haven't found one yet! I'm going to keep checking of course, I know it's hard to get into. Did you get in on 1st try? Right now I have Wispering Canyon for my MK dinner.

She was a huge Beauty and the Beast fan and had wanted to go with us to Disney, but I know she will be there in spirit

We are so excited to be staying at our first deluxe and first time club level stay and are looking forward to lounging by the pool and being able to walk to Epcot. We will also be celebrating my DS turning 12 on our trip! I have already gotten so much information from everyone's posts and can't wait to be there! Our dates are 7/8-7/14, we would love to be added to the BOG list. Just wanted to say hi and share my excitement!
So sorry for you loss Bama Belle, my thought are with you! I lost my dad last year in a car accident, and understand good family time truly helps the healing process & Disney is great family time!

At the moment she is booked at a value resort, but we are hoping to be able to pay for a room closer to us using our AP discount.

Right now the only standard room options (which is already more than we can afford to add to our budget) are at YC and then there is a similarly priced room at BC Villas.

My question is as we are staying CL at BC which room choice would be the most convenient to get to us? YC or BCV? I think YC is a tad cheaper, but I'm concerned it will be far. Obviously either way we'll try and put in a request that she be put closer to where we are.

TIA!
Heather
What about having MIL stay at Swan/Dolphin which would be cheaper, but still in EPCOT area right next door, you can ride boat together, etc?

Bummer no bounce back! I thought the last week of oct was covered in the bounce back?

This is what I have on Page 1 (Other Useful Info section)


What is a Bounce Back Offer?

Bounce Back is a promotion offered at selected times throughout the year offering a discount on a future trip if you book WHILE YOU ARE STILL AT THE RESORT. It used to be left on a card in your room, but now is part of the Be Our Guest guide that you should receive at checkin. You can also dial #8844 from any resort phone to see if a bounceback promotion is being offered and what the eligibility requirements are.

You MUST book it before you check-out. Once you get home, you can change the dates or cancel it. However, once you check-out, even if you give them your reservation number and say you were just there, they won't allow you to book it.



Thanks for the photos, MickeyT!

As the others have said, the bounce back does include the last week of October.

I think the confusion came from this post:

I think Julie meant that she had booked the bounce back for the last week of October, but she would have preferred the week before. She'll switch to the week before if a discount comes through for that week. I was confused at first, too.

First try, but it's super late for us to eat, I emailed IPO about checking to move up a bit. But actually since its our last night we probably won't feel like sleeping anyway.

Thanks, I looked at this. When she was first looking for resorts neither were available. Now Swan is, but it's only about $90 cheaper and that's for a prepaid nonrefundable rate. So I'm not sure it's worth the difference.
