We ended up adding the DDP b/c we have 3 character meals. It's one of the few ways we can keep DD (17 mths) entertained while we dine. We also have TIW which we'll use for Coral Reef and any other meals we enjoy outside of the DDP. I'm going to keep receipts for everything and make a comparison when we get home to decide whether or not we should renew TIW or add DDP to our January trip.



There's a pizza window on the Boardwalk. We like to bring a blanket and lay out on the grassy area in front of the Boardwalk Inn. There's also a pizza place in Epcot-Italy. Wish Via Napoli had a takeout window. Or do they and I never noticed?
That sounds like so much fun! Thanks!

Ok well.. I just booked a dinning reservation for Garden Grill (for 1)! I've never eaten here in all my years going to Disney, so I figured why not!! I'll be there 10/30-11/4/13 alone and thought I should give it a shot!! I have a late reservation so I should get Chip and Dale all to myself!!

Can't wait!

Hello BC alum. I'm so excited to be arriving for our first stay in 4 days!!!! I have a question for you. I do not have any room requests and I'm beginning to wonder if I should have something...There are four of us including a 4 year old and a 2 year old. We will have strollers. Do you have any recommendations or should I quit worrying about it and go with the luck of the draw?

Ok so I am going to use my favorite forum for my first attempt at posting photos on the DIS.

Dee, I clicked on your tutorial link and will give it my best shot!!! I figure I should try here since you are all so forgiving

I apologize in advance if they are all way too big or come out all screwy!!

Wish me luck!!! Each pic was taken at WDW! (I so know that I'm going to screw this up!!!!)

Jay

Good job Jakey!!! you did it!!

Yeah, only 4 more days!

The only things I would consider adding is close to lobby/transportation as you might like to be close to the BC Marketplace and this is the closest to the SAB pool as well.

And if you feel a full balcony would be nice that is always something else to request.

Either way, I would call today and have it added to your reservation but it may be too close to having rooms assigned ... could already be in progress?

Have a great time!

That's awesome! My DS got into archery when he tried it out at the London Olympics last year ( lucky kid... My aunt took him!) He just joined a local archery club... I'll have to check out that experience for him and DH (who has done it since his days in summer camp)

Just have to say how much I LOVED our YC stay 5/26-31. The staff were all absolutely wonderful, and room was beautiful. We went from their to HRH and I just kept thinking how much I would rather be back at YC- guess I'm getting too old to appreciate the rock star life!

Great job and nice pictures!

I like to post pictures in 640 by 480 (Large) size.

If you want to upload all of the pictures at this default size, right before you upload the photos you will see an option in the upper right corner "customize upload options", click on that link and you can set the size there.

After you have already uploaded the pictures, if you want to change the size you need to edit each picture.

Go to that picture in your library or subfolder. Click on the edit option. A bunch of options will come up. Chose "Resize". You will see two dimensions- width and height. Change one to the size you want (try 640 or 480 depending on if it is horizontal or vertical). The number in the other box will automatically change.

Click on "Apply"

On the next page, click on the check box "Replace Original", then click on "Save".

That should* save the photo in a different size.


240 x 180

insert picture

* note: I am having trouble resizing the copy of this picture using the directions I have posted- that has been an issue since the "improvements" made to Photobucket. What I usually end up doing if the resizing doesn't work is just re-upload the pictures in the size I want.

640 x 480in
