That is hilarious!!!

Please do not tell the cicadas about this thread!

We are already buzzing with flies!

Rewarding myself for surviving 2 of 3 trips to the registry of motor vehicles by (trying to) catch up on this thread.

pages 104-107

So...the inevitable question- should we or not?

We're staying YC SV...honestly we're not that picky...we've only requested a room change 2 or 3 times ever staying at (non-Disney) hotels...once when they gave us a king bed instead of the two doubles we requested (for me, DH and our 2 tween girls), and twice when the non-smoking room clearly wasn't...

I'm starting to wonder if we SHOULD be picky since I hear so many people talking about all their requests, and which are most important....

Our flight gets in at noon, BTW...and we still haven't decided if we're taking ME, or something else (so I guess we're NOT done trip planning after all!!)
You know what? I say do the online checking. Usually I recommend waiting for checkin, especially for Beach Club guests who request a full balcony, but you sound like the perfect candidate for grab-and-go keys.

If there is anything that is important to you (daybed, lower/higher floor or close to lobby/transportation), then you can add it to your reservation now by contacting CRO or whomever made your reservation.

For the online checkin for YC, you will be given selections (I believe you can choose none, one or both): lower floor and near transportation

I think you will also be given a choice if you would prefer to take a room that is ready over your preferences.

back!!!

So happy to be adding you again so soon.



I know you gave me permission to link to your Illuminations Cruise review (THANKS!). I also have a section on page 1 for trip reports to YC/BC/BCV. May I link to your most recent and past reports with stays at these resorts?

I know you have had some issues on some of your trips, but our purpose here is to show it like it is!

Being close to the lobby is a great location. The only thing you may want to specify is whether you want a lower or higher floor, if you care.



Do I have you on the Be Our Guest list? When is your trip?

Yes, ask at the desk, but I think you request it from Housekeeping.

The Ninja family will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside, but since we are Ninja's we'll be hard to spot. Look for the family at the pool that is covered from head to toe in black Ninja wear.... We'll be the ones that are making a ridiculous attempt to blend in with the shrubbery....

Who said that?

Have a fantastic trip!!!

There has been some resort specific merchandise at the YC and BC for awhile now. There are a few pages on The Marketplace link and Fittings and Fairing link showing some of the items.

I'll add the links here in a couple of minutes.

to the DIS and this thread!

I keep a Be Our Guest list of folks staying at the resort- I'll add you to the list for November.



Let us know if you have any questions. There's also lots (and lots) of info and pictures on the first page of this thread.

Time passes on the board as quickly as it passes slowly for the next trip!
The cake we ordered above came from the Contemporary Bakery - we got it from Chef Brian and he was fantastic to work with to get exactly what we wanted!
TOO CUTE!!! What a great smile!

Thanks for sharing the picture and the cake info.

Joining in here! We just decided to upgrade to YC CL from POP, quite a switch I know! We will be there from Friday, Aug. 30 - Mon. Sept. 2, just a quick Labor Day weekend getaway. Can't wait!

Do I have you on the Be Our Guest list? When is your trip?

Thank you for the info....we are the Aug 16-22.
It's been a few years since we've been there and I can't believe all that's changed since then. Any tips for the new things would be appreciated!

Questions!

Hi! I have a couple of questions and am hoping you guys can help. I did try searching, but I'm still relatively new, so please forgive me if they are already answered elsewhere!

9/20/2013 - 9/28/2013
BC - CL Deluxe Room
First Trip for DH and the Kiddos. I did CP in the Summer of 1991 and haven't been back since - yikes I'm old!

1 - Just verifying we won't be on the same floor as the Lounge? Not a big deal, just want to level set with the Family.

2 - Our flight lands at 9:30 PM that Friday night and we plan to use ME, but should we get our bags? I don't mind waiting for them in the room, unless you think it will be after midnight before they arrive?

3 - Do I check in online? Is there any benefit for my particular reservation/time getting in?

Again, thanks so much to all who contribute and answer questions - you're all really great!

And I'm sure I'll have more questions...so thanks in advance for putting up with me!

1. None of the Deluxe CL rooms is on the 5th floor.
2. If your flight lands at 9:30, ME will pick up your bags and deliver to the resort, but it might be very late by the time you get them. If you plan to go right to sleep and don't want to be woken up at 1 or 2 am, then you may want to pick up your own bags.
3. Most folks say that with CL there's no need to do online check-in.

Thanks as always for answering, Dee, and the links too. Yes, there are supposed to be new items! Disney Parks blog wrote about it, but featured only SSR and OKW in their samples. Then, someone posted the new Poly merchandise just the other day. Hopefully, we BC fans will be getting something
too.

Gorgeous cake! I love chef Brian. I'm already thinking what we will ask him to do this year!

If you want cheapest, pay attention to parking and resort fees. The closer you get to DTD, the more likely they are to have them. I try to get as close as possible without extra fees, LOL. Good luck!
