A dog hitter? Grace & Henry don't approve.

So... There was supposed to be a judgemental looking picture of my 2 cats which would have made that last post a lot funnier.

{edit:there we go!....and clearly Couchy I'm kidding. ;-) }

Another coffee question: after seeing the previous thread about coffee, my DH and I started talking about bringing his own ground coffee (he is very much the coffee snob!) packed in our bags. Which brought up this question: the coffee makers in the rooms are the kind that have filters? I'm not a coffee person at all so I'm clueless. Having his coffee on the morning makes all the difference (and I won't have to listen to him whine about will make me happy too)

29 days!!!

Sadly, no. I used to bring my own coffee too, but now they have "the pods"

Here's the info from Page 1, Post 14 (Other Useful Info)


What kind of coffeemakers are in the resort rooms?

As of October 2011, the drip coffee makers in the BC and YC resort rooms were replaced.

The regular resort rooms and club level rooms (including Deluxe Rooms) now have the Cuisinart Double Pod Machines:



Thanks for the photos Rorey, Cinderumbrella and MickeyT!

Here is what I believe are in the rooms currently. Anyone who has been there more recently, please correct this info if it is wrong:

All regular (non-club level) rooms: Cuisinart Pods

All standard club level rooms, all views (standard meaning non-suite), including Deluxe Club Level Rooms: Cuisinart Pods

Suites (1 BR, 2 BR, VP, Presidential Suites): Keurig K-cup

Beach Club Villas- Mr. Coffee-type makers (4 cup for studio, 10 cup for 1BR, 2BR)

I think this applies to both BC and YC- again, let me know if I am wrong!

Thanks for all the great info. You guys really know your stuff. If I wanted to request a room near the Marketplace, I am assuming it is near the lobby?

Yes near lobby would get you near marketplace either on ground or 2nd floor for walking or by elevators down from floors 2 - 5.

Oh I know exactly where you are and I love that view!! Very good for people watching, LOL!!

I can't WAIT to hear about your BOG dinner!!!! I always like the start MK day with a visit to CP. This must be why we always run into each other in restaurants, we have the same plans when it comes to dining!!

Would love to hear your opinions on the New Fantasyland attractions.

Hopefully with the renovations taking place next year, you will give it another try.
It definitely wasn't the CMs or the food, it was just too crowded and unorganized. Every time we tried to grab something in the morning there was a huge line to wait and everyone crammed into that little cubby area. It was nearly impossible to get a cup of coffee because of a crowd of people trying to toast bagels. I just love how the YC lounge is spread out and has food totally separate from coffee and soft drinks stations. It made it so easy to get a cup of coffee. Which for me is probably the biggest reason I even stay CL.

I talked to a couple of different managers while we were there, you probably remember our leaking toilet nightmare , and they told me about the expansion of the lounge. I would definitely try it again if they expanded. I think it would make a world of difference.

Glad to hear he is on the mend. Wanting coffee is a good sign Sorry that they made him leave earlier than you felt he was ready.

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.
Oh my! Glad you checked before he left.

During my very first trip to the Beach Club, when I met Teena, there was a space shuttle launch scheduled for the night we arrived. That launch was scrubbed due to weather, but Teena told us when it was rescheduled and that we could see it by looking to the east (towards Mexico in EPCOT). We happened to have dinner at Le Cellier that night, and our checkin was just a few minutes after the launch, so we watched from Canada as the shuttle lifted off right before our dinner that night.
Wow! How cool. I would love to see that!
