I love DH's dining idea. I know my DD would LOVE that over the 'adult' food I'm serving today, and it would save me a lot of trouble. Now you've got me thinking about a dinner change!

Be safe tonight and if you're not going to pack much, in honor of Deena, you can do your toiletry shopping at Basin and in honor of my DD, your clothing shopping at TrenD.

Hi my RC ladies....hope those of you celebrating had a lovely Easter. I asked this over on the BC thread, but I am sure you guys can help me out with some advice too. I am going to copy what I asked over there...

"Hello everyone...hope you all had a lovely Easter Sunday! I have a question for everyone. Just today on the old WDW site (which is the only one we can get ) It finally popped up that I could do online check in. I started going through the motions to do it, but then it kicked me back out of it. I was going to try again tonight, but my question is this.

Does it really matter if I don't do the online check in? We are staying CL, so I wasn't sure if it was really necessary. Is the check in at CL part of the experience? But I do wonder about making the requests with the online check in. Will we get the daybed with us being five? If a full balcony is important should I do the online check in and request that?

Any advice is appreciated."


Thanks all!!

Jen

I can't speak for everyone else but because I usually have very specific requests I don't do online check in. When we stayed at CR CL I had our reservation noted but still did not receive our request, but the CM folks care of it right away. I don't know that online check in would have made any difference.

Oh and at YC (not CL) we did not do online check in and were upgraded to water view from the extremely nice CM who seemed to want to go out if the way to meet our requests.

I have just found that with the deluxes, I like regular check in better.

Just wanted to pop in and say hello and Happy Easter to everyone. We have been home less than an hour and we are all so tired.

While the DSs are taking showers, I'm downloading the pics from our trip. I didn't take any pics of the German food b/c it was not a good experience. Tomorrow, I'll let ya know how the trip went.

Hope everyone had a nice Easter. We did. What's not to love about chocolate bunnies and family.

jennyjinx: No need to online check-in for CL. They will meet you at the front door. I never do online check-in for non-CL rooms either. I like the pageantry of it all.

pas130:
Great idea for hamburger/hot dog picnic today. Happy trip!!!!!

WDWKOOK: Did you get some tasty ADRs made. Food porn, please...

babyberger: Nice CR/BLT photos. I hope they sway koh... Oooops, I mean I hope koh likes them.

wookie: Sounds like a spooky schnitzel story in there somewhere...

Nice one, Magic... Hehehe. :-) I am going to get final pricing for a couple of options and see if DH has an opinion one way or the other...

Happy Easter to you too! I'd send IPO an e mail asking them. And let them know your room requests. Last August we stayed CL at AKL and I didn't do on line check in, but had my room requests on my reservation, and let IPO know too.
But now it seems things are changing with the new 60? Day online check in, and other options they plan on rolling out, magic bands, FP+ which all seem connected to the earlier check in

Being in Canada I have the old site too and also have the My Disney Experience app on my iPad. Maybe there is an option to do the on line check in using that? Don't know, I'm still 140 days out. Too early for me. You might go on the Canadian Thread to see if anyone there has had recent experience with on line check in and the old site.

For all those who celebrated Easter, who it was a happy one!

Pas, like your down home easter meal! And easy clean up too! Sorry you had 2 terrible nights at work (scary situation in ER as well! ) ...and then your paper! Just keep thinking, Universal and sunny Florida in 2 days my friend!

Kook, all your ADRs all in order? As Magic said, we need the food porn details, please!

Melissa, happy that Stephen is doing much better! Will have to check out your new website.

Wookie, welcome back! Hope the trip was great! Can't wait to see your pix!

Sam and I had a fabulous time at the Taylor Swift concert!! It was wonderful to meet up with my friend and her kids. Taylor puts on a great show, very themed and theatrical, and Ed Sheeran was great too! We had floor seats so Sam when Taylor switched to the back stage to perform a few songs she was able to get closer to the stage and that's when Ed Sheeran returned to sing the duet he wrote for Taylor. Sam was in heaven!!

Before the concert, we were to Carlos Bakery, home of the cake boss. It was mobbed... fortunately we pre-ordered, so it was easy. Otherwise the wait had to be about 1 1/2.

Hi to Everyone else! Have to get moving for work! Be back on line later!!

Good morning my enablers....I mean friends!. My Mom said yesterday that yes they would watch the girls for us that last weekend of August, and gave me a little pep talk about doing things now. How you never know what life holds, we are young now, don't feel bad about the girls as we do a lot with them.

So I have been poking around online and can get a good rate for flying down on Aug 29....not so great for returning, but I do have a credit with AirTran. Thinking I would book Room only at Pop and maybe apply AP discount if it comes out. DH is acting clueless, asking me where we would go.... really?

Anyhow....I feel an impulsive move coming on. I may just pull the trigger on this. I know this is what I do....I could talk about this kind of trip forever but never do it. This time I might actually take action! Phew....just had to get it all out. Once again I am making my own head spin.

Lulu's mom....arrive safely and have a wonderful trip!!

Hi Janet, Koh, SueM, magic, Wookie, and Melissa.....I 'll be back later!

Hi, my name is lmhall2000 (actually my moniker) and I am a confirmed RC. I need help!!

We have not been to the world in 8 years!! All kids are well over any height restrictions so we all decided it was time to visit and get those rides completed! Plus, Disney cruise line has offered much better deals for our family of five than we could grab from Disneyworld so hoping Free Dining option for September will change that...or will I not only be a RC, I'll be a SC (ship changer! )

Started out booking Contemporary, but alas, the cheapest room for $404 a night is not available..the $440 a night was freaking me out, so considered POR but our child who would be sleeping on the extra bed is over 6'3 so not an option..someone mentioned a blow up mattress, but honestly, paying that much a night..I am not messing with a blow up! So, then switched to the Fort Wilderness Cabin...now thinking I really need to rent a golf cart, I figure I need to reconsider the Deluxe option again...BC, YC, BWI??? All have rooms with daybed that will fit us well.....

We have stayed at Poly twice, Contemporary once, Animal Kingdom (when we could fit our youngest in a pack n play) once and Old Key West once...would prefer to try something new..

Any RC suggestions out there?? If this was our last trip to DW, which resort would you suggest??
