I totally agree, I'd rather fly, but DH hates flying because he had tubes in his ears as a child & finds flying painful & finds his equilibrium is off for 1 day. So he'd rather drive, ugh! As long as I get to go to Disney I will deal with it! It's a long drive, and we usually take 2 days. We drove straight through once & it sucked!

Her only hesitation is the twins would need to share the sofa bed and she is concerned with the comfort level of it. Is it the kind where the mattress is sagging and you roll to the middle of the bed all night long or would it be ok for 2 9 year olds for 10 nights? Thanks for the input!
We just stayed in a 2 bedroom in October and the sofa bed in our room was great for our 2 boys. Only 5 and 7, but 50 & 60 pounds - for comparisons sake. They never complained.

Bumping this one up! Anyone know about the locks on the doors to the balconies?

I am paranoid about that sort of thing too, the only lock I noticed on our YC balcony was near the handle. the doors are sliding doors, so you could bring something to block the door shut, like a broom stick. I would guess around 24" long would work.
I don't know what your kids are like, you could try moving the desk in the way or something if that may be a deterrent. We were in a regular room so I just put myself next to the door.

We kept the curtains closed so the little ones wouldn't think about their being a balcony and at least they are the balconies that they can't fit through the slots. If you think he may try to go out there alone, take any furniture in off the balcony so there is nothing to climb on.

I know on the 5th floor YC the balcony doors have a hook style lock at around eye level (my eye level, I'm 5'3") in addition to the regular door handle.

Can you pay on the phone using the automated system or speak with a cast member? We made our final payment today through the automated system.

Thank you!
I didn't know there was one but I can sure try. I think they close at 10pm for live phones so I missed it by a bit...was showering. We are moving so things are crazy around here!

That's funny it's the same city! Winter has been too long this year for sure!

Thank you for the balcony answers! when we go next year DS will be a few months shy of 3. Right now he is a climber which is what worries me. I initially thought a first floor room would be nice but then started to worry about him possibly wandering off if he figured out the door on his own, or on higher floors climbing on the balcony! I doubt this would happen but it's just in the back of my mine. I'm sure we could bring a child proof lock of some sort too.
