It has been 3 years since we have been there, but we used an entrance from the pathway in between the shipwreck slide and Stormalong Bay. I think it was near Hurricane Hanna's and the entry point was close to the pool where the slide dumps out.

Are there any entrances other than the B&C entrance on the Yacht Club side?

Dee, as much as I hate to leave this lovely thread, please remove me from the BOG list CR opened up a few days and we can now get our entire stay under the convention rate, so we just extended our stay over there (instead of moving to YC after convention at CR).

I am sure I will look longingly at SAB when I stroll the Boardwalk, but I couldn't justify the extra $1000 to DH, although I tried

Thank you all for being such lovely hosts on this thread, and I will still stop by to check on you all and read the fun posts.

Yep, there's another entrance sort of half way in between Yachtsman Steakhouse and Captain's Grill. That's the one we use with Princess Lily since it is closest to the zero entry sandy area.

So glad to hear this. They can do so much more with outpatient now. And love the Starbucks thing. Maybe a few of those will perk him up .

He was there overnight ... I think he should have been there at least two nights instead of one. Yep, Starbucks is the best medicine as far as he is concerned. I hate coffee.

Yeah, $1,000 would take a lot of convincing. I'll keep you on the list but indicate that your trip is at CR.

Please do stick around play with us if you wish.

So, I know it's silly but throughout the year I go pretty much bare-faced but on vacation I've been known to slap a little mascara on my remaining three or four eyelashes. Don't ask me why - it's a vacation so I take a holiday from my normal face? Unfortunately, now that I'm old and blind I find it difficult to see my eyes unless there is some sort of magnifying mirror at hand. I would wear my glasses but then it makes it difficult to get the wand to the lash without
Here's the question: does such a mirror exist in the vanity area of a YC SV CL room?

I forgot to mention how much I love the rooms that have a view of Tower of Terror!!! Seriously Cool!

And probably most of you know this, but the color of ToT is designed so that it blends in with the pavilion in Morocco when you are looking from a distance. I can't remember if I learned that from the Unofficial Guide to Disney, one of the tv specials on the Travel Channel or somewhere else.

Yes! There is a magnifying mirror in the bathrooms at the Yacht as well as the Beach Club resort. Mrs. Buzzy has the same problem when she applies her "Fly liner"!

Love, Buzzy, the beauty consultant (and resort wear) Fly guy!

It's awful how the insurance companies force the MD's and hospitals to discharge patients so soon. The docs in Boston are actually measured on their patients "Length of stay" in the hospital and there are repercussions to them if their patients stay longer then the hospital and insurance companies think they should! Horrible!

Glad to hear Bob is home and healing. Sleep and rest are always the best medicine! Let me kno w if you want me to send you a set of hospital scrubs so you can not only be a nurse at home but look like one too

My DH is a total procrastinator about everything! Makes me nuts! Two WDW trips ago, he waited until the last minute to get his stuff packed and loaded into the car, and he ended up forgetting his park backpack on our dining room table. We were at the airport before we realized he didn't have it, so it was too late to go back for it. It had his sunglasses, reading glasses, extra swimsuit, park poncho, Bobble, and a bunch of other things. He was furious at himself for having forgotten it. But he waits until the last minute to do everything, and then this type of stuff happens.



My trip is 2 weeks from tomorrow, and we check into BC 3 weeks from today! I am this guy ----->

I am Blessed!

Our packing dialog:
DW>Which of these shirts do you want to wear?
Me> That one. That one. And that one.
DW> OK. Get out of the way.

My DH is the over packer in the family. Last year we went to Disney for 2 weeks. Florida in August... So I told him we are going to do laundry twice and I want everybody to pack for ONE WEEK and no more.
He brought me a suitcase so stuffed it wouldn't zip the night before we left. I started going through it- he had something like 18 t-shirts, some long sleeved shirts, 4 sets of pj's, 7 pairs of pants, 4 pairs of shorts, three pairs of shoes, multiple sweaters and a winter coat plus enough socks and underwear for the full two weeks plus some. I have no idea how that was one week to him. Why was the man trying to take a winter coat to Florida in August?
I unpacked and packed everything for three of us into that suitcase.

We pack at the last minute, but there is a basket downstairs where all the misc. things that go with us get put for a few months before the trip. Things like misting fans, trading pins and frog togs live there.

In other news, any of you who had problems with the BC/YC club offerings- by all means please write a complaint letter before my trip so they do something better before late August. Thank you in advance.
