Thanks for the perspective shot. It looks like it would fit an iPad or other smaller tablet, but not a larger laptop. This is a big help! Thank you!

Sorry about the double post! My phone gets whacky on Disney property!

So my sister and I were chilling in our room and we heard some commotion outside our room and we went to investigate. A man from the hotel was there and kind of startled when we opened up the door. He had two birthday buttons with him....not ordinary ones...they bedazzled them! They put stickers on them...mine has aurora and a few Mickey heads and my name is written in glitter and my sister has belle!

I'm in love with this resort and the people here! They're all so nice and it just makes me feel special.
My sister and I went to hurricane Hanna's and I got the banana cabana.....YUM!!!! The bartender was so nice. It was my first time at a bar. This place is spoiling me.

I think around $15 plus tip. There is a taxi fare estimator in the first post in this thread, with the transportation information.
Thank you! I don't know how I missed the taxi fare tool.

We are cheap but we are coming to terms with the fact that it's really a good idea to take a cab if you are going from resort to resort or BACK from Downtown Disney from the BC/YC.

For dinner at a Magic Kingdom resort area hotel we would leave early and take the bus to MK (then take Disney transportation/hoof it to the hotel) but on the way back, if we weren't going to the parks and it was anywhere near the time where a lot of people were leaving MK, we would not hesitate to take the cab back to our resort.

Definitely budget for this if you are headed to another resort, as it is well worth it. We even saved ourselves some much needed rest time by taking a cab directly to the POLY for a dinner instead of leaving an hour in advance to take the bus to MK then the monorail to poly. It took 20 minutes from BC pick up to the lobby of the Poly and we felt well rested and ready to enjoy O'Hanna when we got there.

PS. Thanks to everyone for all the TR lovin!
Thanks! We are still new to the flying and not having a car thing. This will be our second car-less trip. We are from Charleston but relocated to Nashville so we used to always drive from Charleston to WDW.

I'll be at BC April 5 - 8 for my birthday. I'm really looking forward to being close to Epcot for the flower & garden fest!

Sorry ... have no idea about the little pirates. Since I now have a little princess, I'm only learning the little kid stuff as we go. I'm an expert at first haircuts and other haircuts for the little ones at Magic Kingdom though. My daughter will not allow anybody but the hairdressers at Magic Kingdom Barber Shop to touch Lily's hair. She's 20 months old today and has had two haircuts ... both at Magic Kingdom. Her next one will be in early August back at Magic Kingdom.

Teena-thanks anyway! Maybe someone else will know. Maybe our guy and I will make one together as a project (he is3.5 so authenticity requirement somewhat of a low bar). He has asked if we could be pirates together-initially i was hesitant b/c i thought no adults could wear any costumes on non-mickey halloween party days, but it appears pirates are an exception (at least if doing father-son pirates league makeover).

Nicely done! Yes, you have totally earned a Sunken Treasure.

What did you see for a movie?

That cake is just gorgeous! Happy birthday. I think I'm super emotional today because seeing your photos made me tear up!

Were all the surprises in your room from Disney? They look so fun.

On another note, I have a couple of questions for the experts....what is a "sunken treasure"?

The letter of marque sounds fun....I wonder if someone on the Disigns thread could make one?

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.


So glad to hear about your upcoming stay at the Beach Club! I'll add you to the list.

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.


I'll add you to the list!



Sorry I didn't get to answer your earlier question about balconies or daybed. At least now you know you will get a balcony. If your room does not have a daybed, you can request a rollaway when you checkin.

Please add us to the Be Our Guest List


Sounds like a fantastically fun lineup for your fall trip!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list
