Pixarmom - Welcome Home!!!

Your pictures are gorgeous. We always do our "beach vacation" at Hilton Head. Your pictures are seriously making me consider Vero Beach!

Just booked CL today!

Halloween?


Hi, we will be staying over Halloween and will not be attending MNSSHP this time.

What does the Y&BC do, if anything, on the 31st? I am due to make ADRs soon and wondering where to make them for. In the past I have heard DTD offer some trick or treating but we were thinking of just staying at the hotel that night and doing Cape May.

What about Epcot?

Thanks.

Ninja Mom-LOL! I guess it doesn't matter where you are in the summer! Pool etiquette good or bad is the same! Thanks for the info!

This way if the chair hog came back hours later and you were still sitting in the chair, well, you wouldn't be sitting where Piggy remembered hogging the chair hours ago before they left for the parks.... right??

I never thought that people might put a towel on a chair and walk out of the pool area - for hours. That is really inconsiderate. I will never again feel guilty if I take an unattended chair that only has a towel on it.

Last time DH and I went over to the quiet pool because there weren't any good chairs at SAB that didn't have towels on them. I love the idea of moving the chair.

Really hoping our July trip will be a stay at the Beach Club. I'm impatiently waiting to see what the AP rates will be.

There only appears to be about a $50 to $60 difference to book a GV over a SV with the summer discount that's available right now. Should I book the GV? Are these rooms in a better location than the SV? I'm guessing most of the SV rooms are at the back of the building overlooking the parking lot. I guess I'm more interested in location than the view. Would like something close to the pool or the walkway to Epcot, but don't want to splurge for the water view.

Thanks for the advice!

Another question for all you Beach Club Veterans! We booked a standard view room at the Beach Club, I see the map on one first page, where would these room types be? Would I just assume they are on the back overlooking the parking lot? I'm sorry, I know nothing about this area, we stayed at AKV 3 of our last 4 trips!

Lots of the standard view rooms overlook a roof and are on the third and fourth floor. More of the views are roof views than parking lot views.

Thanks for adding us to the Be Our Guest list, Dee!

We are getting excited for our first visit to the YC!
Just a one-nighter until we move to the GF, but we are hoping to get a good feel for the resort in that short time...

Okay...a little Midwest here so I've never heard of it. She is going to a state final for architecture design since she took 1st place in that too (no offense gentlemen but she beat all of the boys)....

However I will add this one to the list to review but we also have the Art Institute in Chicago ( not to far).
