So nice to meet you and make sure you save some of those tasteykakes for your hubby
He ate one last night ... it was actually his last food before the surgery!! I start at 8 AM so hopefully I'll see you on Sunday!!!

We will most certainly see you before heading back to Philly
I will be the depressed one crying as my wife drags me out to magic express.

I need to hit the lottery first. Or maybe I can talk my wife into the Disney vacation club having kids in expensive sports is tough. We are so enjoying our time here. Problem is the kids always want to be on the pool.

Thank you everybody for all the prayers and good wishes. You guys are all like family and you have no idea how much you are caring really means to us.

And Dee, thanks for the updates and super thanks to you for posting Lily's princess dancing debut on the thread. I hope everybody gets a good laugh out of it. I watched it numerous times today ... any time I was getting nuts waiting, I watched her video on my phone and I just thought of her and the dancing she is going to do at the beach in two weeks ... with her PopPop holding her hand!!
Teena this is Great News!!

So glad Bob's surgery went well, Teena. We haven't met, but I hope to pop by BC during our stay at YC to say hello. I really appreciate the great information you provide.

Sometimes an Animal Kingdom bus and a Magic Kingdom bus drops off at the same time. As the guests are walking through the front door, half are soaking wet and half are dry. It rained at one park and not the other.
So true! One of our stays we were at WL, and folks returning from MK said it was pouring there!! In Florida I think it can rain on one side if the street and not the other

to the thread!!!

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list.






Have I welcomed you yet? Are you on the Be Our Guest list? Just in case...




BUMP!

Which kitchen cooks the room service food?


Another, less expensive but not as convenient solution, is to stop somewhere on your way back to the room to get some food.

Flatbread, Sandwich, Salad or Grab and Go Sushi from the Marketplace

Burger or Sandwich from Hurricane Hanna's

When we are returning from EP to BC, we love bringing back something from either Sunshine Seasons, Tangierine Café or France.







BUMP

Least crowded time at the checkin desk?








I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list for September.



Others have responded about room condition. I think the general consensus is that most rooms at both resorts are fine, the hallway carpeting, especially at BC has overstayed its welcome and needs to go.






Great day to start a trip at the Beach Club!!! I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list on page 1.



Others have posted about their fishing experiences. Here is the number I have to call and reserve: (407) WDW-BASS





You are welcome!

I do have to admit, though, I can't use the string bag everytime I go to the parks. It is great when we are just popping into EPCOT for the night. In other cases, I am rocking a fanny pack.

For the class trip last year, I definitely had more "baggage" as I was responsible for 20 park tickets, 40 meal vouchers and 14 ID cards daily.






So glad to hear you are enjoying the BC so far!!!

Can't wait to hear about the Illuminations cruise!







Thanks for sharing your story. Put a smile on my face!






Well, you could always either carry them in your hands (if you still have one left) or if they have already been used, wear it in. You may look a little "different" if the sun is shining, but maybe others will give you plenty of clearance!

We can get a taxi at any point, we were thinking of maybe doing some shopping before heading over. What is the quietest time of day to check in? We know with it being August our room probably won't be ready till around 3pm but are more than happy to spend some time at SAB!
I'm thinking we won't do the online check in because I have made our room requests via phone and I don't want the online check in to counteract these, plus we've never been to YC before (DBF has never been to Disney) so we might want to ask questions etc. Unless people think we would benefit from online check in?
IMO, it's less crowded to do check in during the morning. Since you will already be in town, you could go do early morning check in, drop luggage with Bell Service, then go shop. You'll have more room in the car for your shopping parcels too
