We have always received an actual pack n play when we have requested one.

Thank you for that list...awesome. Not sure if these locations will have what he is looking for. Our best bet looks like AK at the Royal Anandapur tea company (frozen cappuccino).A Frappe (Frappacino) is more like coffee / mocha slush. It is not the same as an Iced Coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker either, but I have to say I love those mocha frappacinos. Hopefully we will be able to find one. I will report back.

Here's our view:



Oh! And we were Family of the Day!

And....the shower heads look like this...(for the PP who asked)



And the beers in the CL lounge are Heineken, Bud Light, Sam Summer, and Yeungling.

We do think the YC is a beautiful resort!!

More to come later!
Oh Mousemommy1...what an awesome view! I think you were definitely given a water view. From what I know of the CL GV rooms at YC there are 4 that face the wedding gazebo, and 1 that has a king bed facing the lake-side entrance. And, it doesn't look you have any of those 5, so ...Yay for you!!

And, BTW, I think I saw you in the club lounge on Friday! I recognized you from your pictures. I was sitting in the lounge with my husband, and I saw you and your husband getting your food. I said, "There's Mousemommy1, there's Mousemommy1!", at which point my husband thought I had turned into some kind of loon. But, then I told him that I recognized you from this thread and that when you sat down I was going to say hi. But, then, I looked up and you were gone! I snuck out into the hallway to see where you had gone...and I saw that you were taking your food back to your room. I just missed you before you closed your door And, I didn't want to knock on your door in case it wasn't you after all...boy that would have been awkward!

So, anyway, I think it was you...and based on the room view pics you posted I think it was, because that's about where I thought your room was!

So, hello from afar! Hope you are having a great time and enjoy that view!!!

And, you beat me in posting those shower head pics. Now, what am I going to do with 5 close-up pics of a shower head??

Usually you get a pack n play, however they do have have real cribs with a mattress. These are not full size regular cribs, they are smaller but they worked well for my grandson last year. We have requested one of these "real" cribs for our trip in September.

If you want a crib, I would add it to my reservation.

Have a great trip.

I am a nanny for some close friends of mine, who have 8 kids....several years ago the youngest and I started an (awesome) Disney trip tradition. Well, it has been Chris' dream to have mom and dad come too- and his only other brother at home (everyone has grown up!) ....we are making this happen! And Chris is taking an active role in the planning - his suggestion for Club level! I am in---and hoping everything turns out great! And because it is Disney....the odds are pretty good!


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list for June.



I think the pool has gone back to flexible closing hours. At one point, there were set hours, 10 am to 10 pm, I believe. But we have been hearing reports that the pool closed earlier during the winter hours and that the lifeguards are using their discretion and keeping the pool open later when temperatures and/or crowd conditions warrant that.

Sounds like a smart move, but I have never done this myself.

Also, our guy prefers the "floating barbells" rather than noodles - do they sell those at Stormalong Bay, or just the noodles? (and I have heard recent rumors about demise of noodle sales, but that may have been incorrect info).
I haven't heard that about the noodles. Could someone who is there now, or going soon (very soon)- see if there are still noodles for sale at the Marketplace or Poolside Gifts?

Our recommendation is to request the type of room you want in words, not in room numbers. That way the room assignor knows what is important to you. If you say Room 1234, and that room is occupied during your stay, then the assignor doesn't know where to put you. But if you say "Full balcony, please, close to lobby" the assignor has the choice of all rooms that fit that description for your placement"

I didn't know about this. Sounds like a great cause and a lot of fun. I'll post the link here so others can see it.

Give Kids the World- 3rd Annual NE meet


There is a meet scheduled in Rochester NH in August that I may check out- I think they are attempting to break the record for people wearing mouse ears in one location.

I could always start up a "Shower heads of the YC and BC" thread

Sure, go ahead.

Ummm, no, mommy can just pack some and we'll make it in the room.
There is a thread called "All new BC Marketplace Thread: 2012 Update" here on the Resorts board. Post # 3 clearly shows a Hot Cocoa machine in the picture. However, if it's that important to him, then I probably would bring a few packets just in case. What if the machine happens to be broken during your trip?

This might be a link to the picture:

Thank you. I didn't even think about looking at the Marketplace threads because it wasn't listed on the menu. Someone on the Resort Changer thread suggested I look there, and luckily found it. I am going to do like you suggested though and bring some with us. I don't know if I've said it on this thread or not, but he was diagnosed as having mild Autism Spectrum Disorder. He can get fixated on something and for some reason having hot chocolate easily available at our WDW resort is one of them right now. We're driving, so I'm just going to pack some just in case. There are enough reasons at WDW for him to have a meltdown, so I'm trying to prevent the ones I know I can ahead of time.

Love the pictures! Congrats on being family of the day! How did you do it? My family would love that...but then again I am sure any family would love that. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

I am not sure if you have ever tried the water shoes from lands end but they have always worked really well for my kids.
