What an awesome cake! My daughters are totally obsessed with Cake Boss and fancy cakes, so I'll have to show them that one!

From the Community Post on Page 2 of this thread:

Sunken Treasure: The unofficial beverage of the Beach and Yacht Club FAQ forum:






Contents: Malibu Rum, Midori, orange juice, pineapple juice and Sprite with a splash of BOLS Blue Curacao.


Thanks, pixarmom, Feckless, WDW4us2006 and Ninja Mom for the photos!

Please note that the Sunken Treasure is no longer on the menu at Hurricane Hanna's, however if you get a bartender who knows how to make the drink, you may still be in luck!


Thanks to medicgirl177, who experiemented at great personal risk to decipher the secret formula:




Sunken Treasure- recipe by medicgirl177
1 1/2 shots Midori
1 shot Malibu Coconut Rum
1 shot orange juice
1 shot pineapple juice
Sprite or 7-Up to fizzy taste
1 shot Blue Curaçao
Over ice
Dress with Pineapple slice, cherry, or umbrella

I have a question about the first haircut. How much hair do they really need to have? Our DD will be 9 months and I really would like to do this but she does not have a ton of hair and I really do not forsee too much growing in the next two months. Is this more a symbolic thing or will I be secretly laughed at due to her lack of hair?

I am not sure if anyone is interested, but I just did the online checkin for our May trip. It asked me to confirm arrival and departure times. I was asked to pick PIN numbers for my hubby and myself and for room requests I could choose two of the three listed, which were large balcony, lower floor and near transportation. It also gave me the option of clicking a box which said they would possibly allow us early entry to a room prior to 3 but it might override our room requests. We chose large balcony as our only request. 58 days to go!

The differences in distances between the YC/BC and EP/HS are insignificant- no more than 5 minutes in either direction- much like the walk-on time for Journey to Imagination.
I always like to use comparisons with something most Disers know about. Especially when one family's "5-minute walk" can easly be another's 15.

I think a good rule of thumb for a first haircut is enough hair that they can cut off a big enough lock for you to save, and not have her be bald when they're done Neither of my DD's had enough hair to cut until they were two! (Parents of bald daughters, unite! )

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

Poppy- thanks so much and for even finding an available one on Etsy! Although I spoke about it with my wife, and now we are pretty high on the option of making our own. What better authority to bestow privateering authority at disney than either the king/queen of wdw themselves, mickey and/or minnie? So instead of a rendering of King George, some mouse ears? (Our guy recently is on a minnie phase so we may omit mickey from the document- he rotates through the fab five- for our first two trips, he was all about pluto and donald).

And Jemh- thanks for update on online checkin- we will be there may 11-17, close to yours. We have multiple requests for our room, but they literally have no overlap with the premade choices, so we will likely do online checkin, then followup on phone to ensure our choices still there. I will be (likely) bearing the yc/bc pin and maybe also pirate gear (with a 3 yr old running around probably saying some gibberish word he has picked as his anthem for the week, often a variant of a real world only we understand.)

Will be on lookout for adorably dressed 3yr old being chased by a pirate. I am anxiously awaiting my pin in the mail and will be sporting it as well. Our older DD is doing pirates league on the 10th so we will have a pirate with us as well.

My mother paid Disney florist to set it up in the room while we were out. She paid a hefty price ($400) to do it too. But we added up all the stuff we got (guesstimated it all) and it came out to be a little less than 400...but then we factored in the delivery and set up and thought it was worth it! I was DEFINITELY surprised.

Oh and did I mention what happened at dinner? Well we had my birthday dinner at Cape May Cafe and our sweet server came out and hollered 'everyone, we have a very special celebration tonight. Its Grace's 21st birthday, let's sing happy birthday to her' and I kid you not the WHOLE restaurant stopped and sang happy birthday to me. Holy smokes it was so embarrassing but fantastic at the same time. Definitely something I'll remember for a long time.

How wonderful! What a lovely way to celebrate a very special birthday
Yesterday was my baby girls' birthday - they turned 16 - no Disney for them yet...but a mere 147 days from now they can celebrate being 16 and 147 days old!!!
Happy Belated Birthday Grace!

That's funny, Teena - I have not let my son get a haircut anywhere besides Magic Kingdom either! He is almost 2.5 and has had his only 3 haircuts there. Unfortunately, that might have to change, as we won't be back until the end of October.
After trying and failing to stay at the BC on our last two visits, I am a little nervous to actually put this in print, but Dee, can you put us on the list for a GV room from October 20-25? I booked the bounce back offer while we were at WL. I have to say that I was not nearly as sad about being bumped to WL last week as I would have been if the weather had been warmer. I don't think we would have set foot in SAB. We had a great trip, and my family and I really enjoyed CL! If it is in our budget, we might even upgrade to CL at the BC (if we ever actually make it there, that is)!
