Time to get started making disney piles lol
It has been awhile since we have booked through a TA too, but I believe you are correct. With a regular agency, they will receive the documents and you will get them from the agency.

Not sure if you book with an online agency like Travelocity or Orbitz though- does one get Mickey Mail direct from Disney in those booking situations?

Do I need to tell you which resort she is referring to? I think you all can guess!
Awesome story!!!

Good luck with your party today.

Although your trip is tomorrow, it is NEVER too late to get added to the Be Our Guest list, so I'll do that now!

Have a great time!

Three sets of KTTWs!

I loved our location room 3610 close to the lobby, which was my only request. I loved the Juliet balcony, didn't miss a larger one at all. The weather was great only one really rainy night at POR. I wouldn't hesitate to book another June trip.
Thanks for all of the wonderful information on this thread. I used the secret door all the time!

Teena- I am so glad to hear that Bob is okay. It is so hard to be the loved one who isn't the patient. It was really nice talking with you. You really do make the Beach Club a special place.
Elizabeth
Thanks for your report! So glad to hear you had a nice time and bit of pixie dust.

I tried to play it cool, but inside I was secretly fist pumping and giving myself a high five.

I reluctantly asked if he would like to try a different resort. He looked at me as if I had lost my mind and told me not to mess with perfection. Lol. My two daughters were so excited to know that we would be back next summer. My youngest said,"good, now I don't have to look away when the Disney commercials come on TV". Ha
That is great news!!!

It is awesome to be able to sit on your balcony and see that. I can't wait to see it lit up at night.

Club level staff members are amazing. They are all very personable and friendly. Lounge is on the small side, I agree, but we did get a table this morning. Cast members were cleaning tables and replenishing very quickly.

SAB is closed now...lightning in the area. We are headed to MK!

Thumbs up!!
I know, right!? Doesn't that walking into EPCOT thing just blow your mind?

Glad you are off to a nice start.

So will this be my only trip to the BC - heck no. But for now we are planning on AKL for 2014. Since we are getting our first set of points as of February 2013 we will have double the points for our next trip in June of 2014, so we are going to take my husband's cousin and her three kids with us.
Wow- that is a lot of life stuff going on. Glad you are all feeling better and I hope your uncle is on the road to recovery.

Congrats on your DVC membership!!!

Thanks so much for the fantastic pictures!!!

Would you mind adding the view pictures to the View Thread? Or giving me permission to do it?

Thanks!

Has anyone booked a mani/pedi or massage at the resort or somewhere close? I'd love to hear your opinions if you have- I haven't been able to find many reviews. Since I'll be in conference sessions during the day I was thinking of booking something as a surprise for my Mom one day- but wonder if its worth double what we pay at home for the experience.


I have you on the Be Our Guest list, but without exact dates- I'll add you to July 13, which happens to be the day we leave for Orlando as well.

I always have that done before I go to Disney. I have however had reflexology at SSR and that was pretty good.

Have a great time! I leave in 11 days!

Thanks so much for the review. May I add this to page 1? We get questions about the quality of the spa a lot, and that will give me a place to reference.

The garden view rooms are the same size/type as the other standard rooms, and will have a view of something green. They are located all throughout the resort.

The room request(s) you make will depend on what is most important to your family. Some options are:

Full balcony
Daybed
Close to lobby/SAB/transportation
Close to EPCOT
upper floor or first floor


For further info about room requests and for a link that will take you to a sample of some views from GV rooms, click on this link from Page 1.


Post 13: FAQ
BC vs. YC, Room View Categories, Full vs. Juliet Balconies, Daybeds, Online vs. In-person checkin


Hope that helps!!!

Absolutely! Although early morning coffee honors go to Robyn for her triumphant journey today to return to her Beach Club home.

Looks like you may have the honors next!

I had a basic mani at home that needed to come off after a few days. I had forgotten polish remover and the marketplace did not have any. I went in there and they were nice just to give me polish remover to take it off myself. I thought about having a mani later in our stay but never got around to it. I would give it a try!
Thanks so much for the replies! I'm waiting to see what we get done here before we leave, but it sounds like its a good option!

I would plan on 30 minutes.

Does anyone know the route- does it vary by time of day? Is it always direct to Blizzard Beach or does it sometimes share with the Animal Kingdom buses?

I do know that in the afternoon, most resort buses LEAVING Animal Kingdom stop at Blizzard Beach first, before returning to the resort.

If you don't get an answer here, you can search and/or ask on the Transportation Board here on the DIS.

I will be starting my trip at a top-secret Theme Park Which Shall Not Be Named from July 13-16, and then checking into the Beach Club on July 16 so our stays will overlap a little bit.

We are off to a SAB. Intended on an early morning at HS, but we were up waaaay too late last night. Had some pretty strong rain yesterday afternoon, but weather last night was fabulous! A special club cast member made my daughters some blinged out birthday buttons with jewels and stickers...too cute. Breakfast in lounge was nice. Love that they have hard boiled eggs.

Have a great day!

All of the stories about DHs packing have made me laugh out loud

My DH travels all the time for work (domestic and international) and so he is a professional packer. He leaves for a 2 week China trip with a backpack and a carry -on It literally takes him about 7 mins to fully pack and his very small suitcase it stocked and prepared for any emergency. And he does it right before we walk out the door

I, on the other hand, like to take my time and pack over a few day period It's part of the enjoyment of getting ready for WDW! I put the biggest suitcase I can find on the floor and open it up and every time I walk by, I throw something in (rain ponchos, washer/dryer sheets, hand sanitizer, etc) And darnit, he never forgets anything, while I always do

Needless to say, DH and I are NOT compatible packers. He says to me, "Why are you already packing? Why are you making a big deal out of this?" while I say, "Why haven't you packed yet? We are fixing to leave and you haven't even pulled out a suitcase!!!"

We fly out Sept 1st and I will prob start packing the last week of August....it's fun to be obsessive about WDW to me
