Yep, we only booked the cruise 10 days before the sail date so it really came fast. Can't wait for Saturday to get here and tomorrow to be over with.

May's going to be a super month too since I'll be spending 9 days with Jeanne and Princess Lily. I talked to Lily on the phone tonight. Very interesting. She talks in a whole different language ... definitely not English. Every once in a while she slips in a word we can all understand but she goes on and on a mile a minute in some kind of gibberish and very expressive with her tone of voice. She calls Mickey "Hotdog". It took Jeanne quite a while to figure out that one. It comes from that song they sing on Mickey's Club House. It's her favorite show. Can't wait for Lily to call Mickey "Hotdog" when she gets here in August and we take her to meet him. Donald is "Duck Duck". But the minute she talks to me, she starts telling me things about "Hotdog" and "Duck Duck". She apparently thinks we all live together here in Florida.
You mean you don't????!!!!

Could someone tell me what time the buses start running when it's morning EMH's? I have a reservation at Chef Mickey's at 7:30 am and am not sure the easiest and quickest way to get there. As of right now there is morning EMH's at MK. Thanks!

Thanks for the clarification on your dates.

You're telling me!!!

That's why we work so hard to keep the info on the first page updated to make it easy to find info.

Great question! The whole morning bus thing perplexes me a bit. For years I have read about "character breakfast buses" that come to the resorts to pick up for CM and 'Ohana, but I don't know if they actually exist.

Does anyone know if they still have a CM out by the bus stops "managing" the traffic. That early?

The quickest way to get to the Contemporary is by cab. The fare should be less than $20 including tip. I would say that if you took a cab from BC/YC at 7:10 to the CR, you would make it by 7:30. IMHO, it is worth it in time and aggravation to get a cab. There are usually one or two in a queue waiting for passengers. Just ask a valet who should be stationed by the lobby of the resort. It sounds like you may need a van for 5 passengers, but I think that would be the same price as a regular sedan cab- anyone know?

So, what you could do is be out at the bus stop around 6:30, and see if a bus arrives for the MK or CR (breakfast bus). If it hasn't come by 7 you should probably think about the cab, because if the bus is only dropping at MK, then you need to either walk or mono to CR and that will take some time.

I wanted to thank everyone for the information they've contributed to this thread, and a huge thanks to Dee for the tough job of keeping up with it all. I could never do it. But it sure was a big help in my planning for our trip last month. I hope I've been able to help out a few other future YC/BC fans in return.

My family and I will be moving overseas this summer. Heading to The Hague in The Netherlands for three years, so it's pretty much going to be amazing. But I don't know when we'll next get back to WDW. I'm going to be cutting down on my time on a lot of the threads I've been following, but I won't be away from the DIS entirely - still got to plan our Med cruise on the Magic for 2014.

So I won't be following this thread from day to day, but I'm certainly still reachable by PM if you have any questions about my recent posts.

Take care and have great trips, everyone. I'm sure we'll be back before too long.

The picture someone posted of a CL bathroom looks nothing like the shower that we had last May at BC CL. I think that one might be old - it doesn't even have the curved shower rods. I found the shower heads nice, and the water pressure was good enough for my DD's thick curly hair even after the chlorine abuse of daily SAB. Not a wide rainforest one or whatever they are called though.

Thanks for the bus/ transportation info. There will actually be nine of us but even if we have to take two cabs I think that might be worth it.

Thank you so much for all you have contributed and for the very nice shoutout!!! I'll definitely be using some of your pictures, when I have a chance to catch my breath! Another performance weekend- Aristocats has a soft opening tonight and shows Friday, Sat and Sunday and next weekend!

Best of luck in your move. I hope you have lots of exciting adventures in Europe!

Please do keep in touch when you can!!!

Awesome!!!

Robyn- we are going to try to get reservations for the Dessert Party for July too. We haven't done it before (or even seen Wishes ), so I mentioned it to Mark and he is interested. It would be a surprise for the boys on our last night of the trip.

@ Hunclemarco- gonna be stalking your thread!

My favorite part is watch Tink fly over head.

We love, love, love it - even if we can't eat enough desserts to justify the price. Not having to wait for hours fighting the crowds on Main St. makes up for the cost!

Hope we both get it - I'll keep my eye out!
