So I have a question for all my BC lovers...we haves stayed at BC last 3 trips and are completely obsessed. Our next trip in August 2014 will be myself, DH. DD8, DD6, DS4, DD18mos.
My only problem is that since SAB is so large, DH will mostly be near the big slide, while I'm in the zero entry area with the little one. I feel like we can't even enjoy pool time together.
We were considering trying Poly for next trip, but now hearing about the construction not sure if I want to do that.
Do you guys think we would regret our choice by being all over the place at the pool? Or would we regret it more staying somewhere else?

Will work for tags
Too bad there isn't a place to study the Tag Fairies in their natural habitat, eh?

All of the live reports and gorgeous pictures are getting me so excited for our trip! We're 45 days out and it was all paid a couple of weeks ago.
I am so glad to hear that Bob is doing well and that they can go to California with Princess Lilly.
This thread is cracking me up tonight! Thanks for all the laughs.

Ninja mom - thanks so much for all the info. I think I can talk him into this

I am currently at the new bar at hurricane Hannah's . Did you know they have an exclusive bar menu. I just had the ahi tuna for lunch. They also have pork sliders. FYI: you can not get these things at the regular CS hurricane Hannah's . There is an exclusive bar menu !
Way to go with TSMM

How was the Ahi tuna? I was looking at that menu, pork sliders sound pretty good too! I can see its going to take several trips sp good thing I'll be there 12 nights

We bought those plastic waterproof cases that hang around your neck a few years ago from the resort store. They also work. I use them in the pool & water parks.

Hey! Hands off my Johnny Depp in the hot tub! No one was supposed to find us hiding over there.

Ocalla....you pound the daylight out of that creepy clown nose! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who gets the heeby jeebies from that sadistic-looking face. Eek!

The Catho72 family will be driving themselves (and their bathing suits) so I'll definitely have more $$$ to spend at the bar at SAB and at the kiosk in France. Note to self....pack the dishwashing liquid to wash my refillable mug so I can smuggle slushies back to BC. Buzzy, no matter how much you beg, I will NOT give you a sip!

Thanks for the laugh NM and Dee!

2 more days!! We visit POR first, but I'm sure I can get a little of the Beach Club feel if Buzzy comes by for a visit. I remember when the countdown calendar on My Disney Experience was over 100 days! I can't believe that on Saturday morning we will be there!

Everyone who's there now, thanks for all the entertainment and updates. It has certainly made the time go faster.

Tough question.

Are those the ages your kids will be next summer or are now?

Although SAB offers a lot of varied experiences for different age levels/swimming abilities, I still think you could manage some family pool time.

Would the older kids be content building in the sand for some amount of time? Do you have a ring float for the youngest so you can be in the main pool area for a bit*? Have you used the small slide and pool at the back of the Jib Slide?

Perhaps pixarmom will come by and share her experience with her whole family enjoying that area.

*This might be a good way to enjoy the big slide. One parent with youngest in pool where slide exits. Other parents accompanies other two to slide. Parents switch off so they both get to enjoy the slide.

But I think only you can decide whether it is worth it to have to split up at the pool. You can certainly book at one place and hopefully monitor the construction situation and your kids' personalities and the amount of togetherness that you want in the coming year. Disney is really great about providing flexibility if you decide to change resorts based on changing cirumstances.

Good Morning Everyone and Happy 4th

We had another great day yesterday. I think that someone cloned my family or switched their brains or something because they are not the family I drove down here with.
Yesterday started out absolutely beautiful sun shining wonderful. The kids wanted to sleep in (Mom says WHAT!!!!) but I told my self go with the flow it is their vacation too. Hubby and I decide to go to DHS by boat get fast passes for everyone for TOT and RRRC.
Not so fast I should have known better my brain also left me for a bit all members must be in the park to get the passes and you can not have two fast passes at the same time. Bummer so we got 2 passes for the kids and we rode the TOT before heading back for the kids.
This is where my head turns my DD17 calls we r on the boat heading over DHS can you meet us in the front HELLO

We rode RRRC then got fast passes for later
Kids rode TOT with the fast passes from earlier
Great Movie Ride (DS needed to rest)
Lunch at The Commisary (everyone liked it)
Went back to napped ( around 1:30)
Went swimming then got ready for our ADR at Kona
Got to Polynesian it was crazy packed had to valet park because not one spot in lot
Kids were not hungry so we got Lapu Lapus for everyone (pricey but Delish)
Watched the fireworks from the beach they were so beautiful
Walking out everyone said thank you so much Mom this has been the best day so far
I was thinking we didn't see much or ride much so I was really surprised but to them it was perfect and now I have to agree I just love it here
