Yes I did! I just wrote one line about opportunities to learn about the French culture in France in the World Showcase, I kid you not. But I've been filling this form out for years.

We try really hard to keep this a positive and friendly thread. Thanks for noticing and commenting. I believe that providing information and providing friendship do not have to be mutually exclusive endeavors!

Yes, check the YC Rooms Post on Page 1. It might be the 7th or 8th post. Just remember that the map is somewhat outdated and the only available view categories when the map was created were Standard View and Water View (no Garden View)

What is important to you and your family? Full balcony? Close to lobby/pool/transportation? Close to EPCOT? Best view available in the category? Daybed?

Some of the BC GV rooms have a woods view and are very close to the walkway to EPCOT (but are a bit of a walk to the lobby/SAB/transportation)

Another area overlooks the courtyard by the volleyball court- closer to lobby than the woods view rooms.

Another section of GV rooms overlook the back entrance (lakeside) of BC. This location has rooms close to the lobby and heart of BC.

There is a BC room views thread on the Resort Photo Subforum. There are a few examples of GV there. I have more that I will post when I have the time, not sure when that will be.

Congrats on your trip .

I'm always surprised at what you all have to go thru to get permission to take your children out if school! Wow.
Here, it's the parents business if they want to take their children out of school for a family holiday, not the school boards. Not to sound naive, but they'd really arrest you for taking a family holiday?? sorry to sound stupid, but that doesn't happen here.

I too am amazed at what some parents have to deal with when it comes to this.

Yes, it is really messed up. I'm not saying they would but they can. I think it was 2nd grade when Kayla was sick all the time. Strep, stomach bug, strep again. Anyway she accumulated almost 10 absences. With the exception of strep, I didn't take her to the doctor. I received a letter that if she went over 10 absences she would be considered Truant. It is royally messed up.

Does anyone know for sure?
BUMP!

Let us know if you have been to Cape May Clambake, which night of the week and if shrimp was served that night. Thanks.

I'm just glad we used the pool this morning before the shut-down. And tomorrow morning we head back to CT...boo hoo.

I'll post a more extended trip report when I get home. Awesome vacation!!
Please let us know when the pool reopens. Hope it is very soon for you.

CT Disney- safe travels home!

GRRR!!!

When my oldest son was in 4th grade, we took him out of school for a cruise. On his next report card, his teacher wrote "Nate has not been working hard in school since returning from his trip"

My town of 5000 people was hit by 6 inches of rain in 5 hours yesterday. The town is flooded. Thankfully I live in the country and away from the flood waters. I am the director of a food pantry in town. That building is presently under 2-3 feet of water. It breaks my heart to think of all the food we will have to throw away. Many families have lost their homes and they could use the food but we will have to throw it away. I hope to get into the building on Sunday to take a first look at the damage.

Hurry up days and get here. I could use a vacation.
to this thread! When is your trip? October?

Prayers to your community!

Shrimp at cape may on Sunday, for sure. Then, it's either Wednesday or Thursday - cant remember. But, the crab was so good, that that's all I had!! (Well, along with their delicious salad. Oh, and a few samples of dessert!)

The rooms that will be close to the lobby/transportation will not be close to the rooms that are near the EPCOT walkway.

For rooms close to lobby/transportation/SAB "Overlooking back entrance (lakeside) courtyard please"

For rooms close to EPCOT walkway "Near EPCOT, please"

I believe the rooms that overlook the volleyball courtyard would be in the hallway in between the lobby/Marketplace and the EPCOT walkway exit, so that may be your best bet for a request.

"Overlooking volleyball courtyard, please"

Not sure of the room numbers for this area, or if there is another way to state these requests.

We ate at Cape May on a Thursday when we were there in February and they did not have fried shrimp that night.

I didn't even think to ask the school. I figure when they give birth/parent my child they can have an opinion. I do try to make it educational. But family time is important too. They'd be hard pressed to get charges to stick here, it's an affluent school where I know people travel quite a bit. Any lawyer would be able to argue that (I think??). Hmmm. Eek!
