What a nice mom and brave to take 15 9 year olds to a movie by yourself-- I hope that you son enjoyed his birthday!

Hooray! I finally get to ask to be added to the Be Our Guest list! I've been lurking on this thread for a few days, but today I finally found out that we'll be staying at BC instead of AOA for our trip August 19-25! We got a fabulous deal thanks to another thread here on the DIS that allowed us to upgrade to BC for LESS than we were paying at AOA. Gotta love the DIS.
I used to post on the DIS many years ago but it has been so long that I had to reregister, that's why I'm Babooagain.

Okay, so I finally made my mind up....booked and paid in full!

August 17-25, YC CL!

Could you please add us to the list? Thanks so much for this thread! It has been so informative and is getting me real excited for this trip.

Like I said, nothing major, but sometimes the details make the difference between just being adequate and being really good. And maybe it is the mousekeeping on that floor since both 4th floor rooms had the issues.

Thought it would be interesting if they replenished the Spa h2O items for the suites but apparently not.
OK, I don't know what's going on with all the toiletries stuff!

I hope it is not guests squirreling away bottles as souvenirs!

I call this... One Shampoo Bottle Away from an Episode of Hoarders






PS- these were obtained on multiple trips by more than 1 guest at Disney resorts.

First off, thank you all for the birthday wishes!!!! Today has been so magical! I made it to the beach club! I saw Teena but wasn't able to stop to say hi! I just want to say that the BC lobby is so loud!

I hope this picture works... this is the view from our room!



This is the cake my mother surprised me with



And this is the in room surprise my mother arranged for me!



If you have any questions I'll be here all week!

SAB hours are 10-10 according to the concierge desk

What a wonderful surprise! The cake is amazing. What a nice mom you have

I do have another question. How big is the safe in your room? Any chance you can take a picture?

ha ha!! I have to say that I didn't leave behind any of the items that we had in the bathrooms although that's not saying much! I do have some "mint foot rub" and solar relief gel that was completely not needed when it was 50 degrees!
