Have a magical trip!
If you could let us know if they are still giving small water bottles for the parks that would be great!

Here now at YC CL and, yes, they can give you water bottles to take into the parks. They are not out...you need to ask for them. Very convenient!!

Regarding the walk/boat to DHS and Epcot . . . I almost always lobby for the walk to both DHS and Epcot - even in the summer. And on the way to DHS, we always walk and beat the boat. But I'll admit the boat is a nice alternative on the way home from DHS, especially in the heat or at the end of a day.

A small confession about the boat to/fro Epcot: After over 20 years of Epcot resort stays, we took the boat home from Epcot for the first time in January! We laughed the whole way because we always joked about that boat to/fro Epcot from YC/BC/BWI, wondering who would take that boat when the walk is so short! Well, we finally did because my husband was carrying our sleeping 6-year-old after Illuminations one night, and we were exhausted. It's a "never say never" story.

Thinking of you, Teena!

Well, finally got up the nerve to mention the BC trip to DH and he said it sounded like fun!! So, not to jinx myself, but put us down for a tentative stay August 17 to 24. I'm going to start looking at rooms and possible ADRs tomorrow!

The one thing to know as a first time guest is just how great it is to be able to stroll on over to EPCOT in about 5 minutes! And to have really easy access to Hollywood Studios as well.

Hope you love it!!!

Thank you! I am sure we will LOVE the proximity to EPCOT!

Enjoy Your Stay
Thanks, ocalla! I am a gourmet food buyer by trade, and my family has become quite a group of foodies. We love working our way through EPCOT and trying as many snacks and goodies as we can get our hands on. Those sound like good suggestions! And as for the adult beverages, well....I suppose my arm could be twisted.......

Also, we've never really done the whole mid-day back-to-the-resort thing because (as I'm sure you know) AKL takes a fair amount of time to travel back and forth to. I'm betting that my family will be more amenable to mid-day resort breaks at BC, since it's so much closer to everything.

It's a totally different experience than staying at AKL. My DH loves that area so much, all the food, the action, things to do, places to go, I can't even get him back to AKL.
Hi yourself! My DH already loves that whole area, so I'm sure that spending more time there will be right up his alley! The kids were "all in" once I showed them photos of SAB. I am feeling better and better about this decision!

On our next trip we are trying AKL for the first time, but we are doing a split stay so we won't miss BCV, our favorite. If you haven't checked out the first page of this thread, it has tons of great info.
Thanks for the welcome, disneymom! My kids are 13 and 12. They are thrilled to be trying out SAB! I sat with them and showed them the photos from the beginning of this thread, and that's how I won them over!

I hope you like AKL! I am completely enamored of that resort. I've felt that way since the first time I walked into that amazing lobby! So much to love about it! When are you going?

Ack! I thought the recipe consisted of them waving a stale coffee bean over some stagnant water and calling it coffee. I stand corrected.

For our last trip we stayed at POFQ but we stopped at the BC twice, once to see Teena again and once to have Ice Cream at Beaches and Cream! I always tell myself that one day I'll be back to my favorite location, and staying at the other places keeps it fresh and exciting.

Thanks for the welcome, Ninja Mom! Yes, it wouldn't be a complete Disney trip without at least one meal at Boma. And seeing this as an adventure is a great way to look at it! No matter where we stay, the point is that it's all Disney time, right?



Thanks again for being so welcoming, everyone!

We are headed there in August. Really excited to try it out. We also are going to try Sanaa and Boma for the first time too. Can't wait! I think your kids will really like SAB and walking to 2 parks. More time on rides than sitting on buses.

Exactly! Any time I can minimize my time on buses is a good thing!

I've never been to Sanaa, but we eat at Boma at least once during every trip...sometimes twice! There are lots of things that we love so much from Boma that I've gotten the recipes and now make them at home. Even The Mara has a few options that are not run of the mill resort CS meals.




Just saw my name on the BOG list, and it made me ridiculously happy. Don't judge me though, 'kay?
