When I did online check in at 60 day mark it asked me to pick pins for both DH and myself. Stupid me cannot remember what I chose so I am hoping I will be able to pick new ones.

Highly recommend (and maybe we should add this to the first page) that you always pick out your pin when you check-in ... exactly for the reason above.

but guess what....I'm gonna do the same thing as soon as the July Movie list is out!!
You are welcome. We have never seen the movie either- everyone in my family is always exhausted at night. But we are fantasizing that we will be doing late nights and evening extra magic hours at the parks on our July trip. We shall see...

We are starting our trip at the Dark Side, where we will be hitting 7 am openings 3 days in a row, follwed by 8 am EMH rope-drops when we are Disney.

I think we will be lucky if we can stay awake for the 3 pm parade!

We are no longer spending 4 nights at BC. We are now spending those 4 night YC CL! Even though I'm bummed not to spend a night at my most favorite place in the World, I'm excited that we get to try a new resort and add one more resort to our "stayed at" list. This also means that our entire trip will be CL as our 4 nights at Poly are also CL!

I don't even know how many days it will be until we are there....probably 75 or so......but I know the time will FLY!

Woo hoo!

Sounds like good news to me! I'll change the guest list. Have a coconut danish for me!

I think we are hardy because my kids were disappointed they closed the pools during the truly frigid December 2010 span of weather! They did manage to get some swimming in on a couple 60 degree times...as long as you stayed in the water, it was fine for us. SAB was surprisingly busy so maybe we aren't totally abnormal.

Speaking of hardy and abnormal, we got 16 inches of snow yesterday. Snow day in May? Yikes, it has me dreaming of a little FL sunshine. 172 days, lol!

Hey Teena.....Do you know if this PIN changes each trip (ie. pick a new one) or do you always keep it? Just trying to figure this RFID stuff out.

Thank you so much for posting the activity sheet!! DD10 LOVED her time hanging out at WL pool last year for activities.

Couple of quick questions...
For SAB, do you rent the inner tubes for the lazy river? Any idea how much and how long you get them for?
Can I bring a swim floatie tube for the baby?

We are staying club level (first time...nervous I'll "think" it's worth it, and nervous I won't be able to live without it later!)...our room is SV:
What is the most likely thing I'll see out the window?
Will I get a full balcony?
Since we have 5+ (me, dh, dd10, dd2 ds 2, and 5 month old), I was told we'd have two queens and the day bed. How crowded will it be with the pack and play in the room?

We are driving down and plan to arrive noon to 1ish, depending on how many times we have to stop to feed the baby. Planning on having the swimsuits ready to grab to enjoy the pool while we wait on our room.

Any advice for staying club? Lots of packing to do! Very excited!

You could make a second ticker, just for DL- the slider on that one will fly since you just have a couple of weeks!

Even the adorable ducks look like the water is too cold to bother with, LOL. It was colder in FL that week than it was here in Colorado.

Yes, you rent the tubes for the lazy river. I believe they are $3 for an hour or $10 for the entire day. Sometimes you can find abandoned ones in the river. You can also use pool noodles (from home or purchased at the resort) in the pool.

I believe the lifeguards are pretty lenient allowing tubes/floats for babies, as long as an adult stays within an arms length of the child. Other than that, outside floats are not allowed.

According to my notes for BC SV CL rooms, there is about a 75 % chance that you will get a room with a full balcony based on the number of rooms that have 2 Queens and a daybed in that category.

Never had a room with a daybed or playpen (or both), so I don't know how crowded it will be.

The crib or pack and play (we have had both) fit neatly between the tv/dresser and the wall where the tall dresser is located, IME. Doesn't seem overly crowded because it is outside of the main pathway through the room. I hope that makes sense.

I know people sometimes get upgraded to lagoon view when other categories are overbooked, but does anyone ever get upgraded to the 2BR suite, or is that room off limits?

We were upgraded to a 2br suite two years ago. We were so surprised all I could do was cry. We were so surprised and very thankful. It was the best pixie dust we have ever gotten. We still talk about it!!

Just checked in at YC yesterday. Love our room, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. View is very nice. We reserved a garden view room, and we're overlooking the gazebo. From our balcony we can see the water, and even saw the fireworks over the tops of the trees last night. Shortly after arrival we were sprinkled with some pixie dust. We received a plate of the most delicious chocolate-dipped strawberries I've ever tasted! Everyone is so friendly, and customer service is phenomenal!

So disappointed in the weather, but that's beyond anyone's control. We booked here mainly for SAB, and I don't know if we'll be able to swim at all before we check out on Saturday. Tomorrow was supposed to be our pool day. Hoping for a sudden change in the weather forecast!
