Jeanne and I are off to Epcot today for a day of Test Track and the Flower and Garden Show. Then dinner at Hoop with Lauren. Tomorrow is our second attempt at deep sea fishing.

I'll give Jeanne your plan and I'm sure she'll love it ... especially the cold cup of beer!

I saw in a later post that you will be staying at BCV next year. Sounds like there is time for someone to check out and describe (or photograph) the balcony door locks for you.

I had one escape artist and one son who would call me every morning to come and get him from his room.

Got it!!! I'll put the dates up.

I just ordered the lastest edition of Guide to the Magic for Kids, and it should arrive today. I'll see what they have for suggestions for EPCOT for little ones.

Just want to say- AWESOME SHIRTS!!!

I'm lucky if I can get my guys to wear clean ones, so you won't see my family in cute tees.

Have a fantastic trip!

Basically what I am worried about is that one request might cancel the other.
I had you as maybe YC, but it looks like I should change you to BC.

Bump! I'll be there in July and I will try to notice, but...

We rarely take the bus from AK/MK to the resort.

Our AK plan is to either hop to Blizzard Beach or HS before heading back and we always go from MK to EP via the monorail on our way back.

Maybe someone going soon will take notice and report back.

That is sad news!

So sorry.

Have a fantastic time!!! Sounds great!

When I get a chance, probably tomorrow, I'll put the photos from your dinner at Artist Point and anything you/Jeanne have from your adventures today onto the Princess Lily report.

Changing last minute

Hi everyone, we are currently scheduled at akl for two nights. We are only going to magic kingdom. I think the dining options look much better at bc/yc area. For the spring discount just yc is left. Are there any negatives for YC over BC. We plan on swimming a lot. I always hear BC talk but not YC, why is it not as common?

Thanks

You've created a monster, MouseMommy The girls eagerly jumped on the matching shirt bandwagon, so DH is outvoted He grudgingly agreed to wear one of the Miss Morgan shirts (to Magic Kingdom only )...what he doesn't know is that I'm planning on trying my hand with bleach art too...maybe using pumpkin carving templates of Jack Skellington, or Perry the Platypus, or maybe trying my hand at Oswald (from Epic Mickey)- although he looks hard!

I put YC right up there with BC!!! I would think of them as one resort, just different themes. YC will be a great choice for you.......SAB is awesome!

Have a great trip

LOL!!! My DH is soooo outvoted, but he learned early, that there is no "NO" when it comes to Disney. He actually tells people this when they rib him about his shirts.

My DH LOVES Jack Skellington! And on the days that he is not wearing one of our custom designs, he has plenty of his Jack shirts to choose from.

That's a great question. I don't know why people talk about BC more. I have a slight preference for the Beach Club because of the lighter decor but I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to stay at the Yacht Club.

Of course, the big advantage of the YC is that all of the rooms have full balconies and only about half of the ones at BC do.

I'm sure you will enjoy your stay!

May I add you to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1? When is your trip?

Another switching rooms question:

We're booked in a CL standard view room at YC for just our first two nights (4-7 through 4-9) and then on the 9th, we're moving to a garden view at YC. I did online check-in for both reservations, and on the second one, noted that we'd be "arriving" at 7:30 a.m. I did this in the hopes that I could possibly drop our bags right into the new room. Any chance this could happen?

If the answer is yes, Teena, should the request just be for the full balcony? With a family of 5, they should get a room that will sleep everyone, right? Either a daybed or rollaway cot?
Yes all are over 3. Thanks everyone! I feel much better now!
