A friend of mine was eating dinner at a restaurant on Nantucket last night. He was next to Robert DeNiro

For you CL experts, where are the YC garden view club level rooms located at (views)? I was planning on booking a regular GV room but by the time I got around to booking it today, they are full with the current discount. Debating on the water view or bumping up to CL (or giving up on trying something different and staying at GF...) Thanks!

What a crazy week...finally through all the birthday celebrations in my house. Catching up on the thread and reading the latest "live" reports is making me super excited for our upcoming trip...41 days to go

A couple of years ago we saw Andrew Zimmern up in the club lounge and we also saw two members of the group "Boys II Men" who were performing in Epcot during F&W.

Most of the YC CL GV rooms overlook the wedding gazebo. There are one or two that overlook the back entrance courtyard (lakeside of the resort).

There are only 5 or 6 of these rooms, and I think these are the room numbers, based on what previous guests have reported.


5148
5150
5152
5154

(all are facing gazebo facing away from Epcot, making it difficult to see water too)

5198

(faces away from Epcot and just outside the main lake entrance, but no view of lake from that angle)

There is a link to the Disneyzone map on the first page of the thread, I think in the Yacht Club Room post.

Additionally, there is a room view thread- you should check that out to see some sample YC Garden View rooms (both CL and regular. The CL rooms are on the 5th floor and the number starts with 5XXX)

Yes! I can't stand people who hoard chairs! Did they really allow that man to keep 2 & 1/2 chairs per family member??? I would have complained. That is just plain rude! 😡

Thanks! I saw the Disneyzone map but it was kinda hard to figure out what would now be garden vs standard view. So there are really only 5 or 6 of these CL GV rooms at the resort? I didn't realize that it was such a limited room category. Given that, I think those room sound like they'd be good!

So...I know how edgy things get over the whole reusable mug thing...do you think you could fill the bobbles with water at the reusable mug stations?

Pictures soon. Couchy sent me some but my computer keeps overheating and shutting down. Yikes! I'm going to let it rest for a bit and hopefully it will behave enough for me to post.

I cannot wait anymore. It's so hard as your trip gets closer and you spend more time in here. I want to just relax by the pool on day one and have a sunken treasure. Wishing I was there right now.

I won't name names to protect the innocent. We saw a famous NFL quarterback from a Superbowl winning team several times at the hotel and at the parks. The first time was in the lobby waiting for an elevator- I kept looking at him because he looked familiar but couldn't figure out who it was. He got on the elevator with us and was like an inch from me. He got off the elevator and then my husband told me. Couldn't believe it. We saw him again and again.

My son is a fan of his team that he retired from (unfortunately he does not tow the family line on favorite teams)- he was dying to ask for an autograph but we felt that he was on his family vacation and wanted to respect his privacy, so we did not let him ask.

We saw him standing in line and sweating with the rest of us common folk and made you realize that most famous people have to go thru the same things as you.

For those football fans, here is a clue that would narrow it down a bit- Our fav team, the Steelers, beat his team in a recent Superbowl but he won his Superbowl against another team several years earlier.

Drat! That is a problem. I guess I'll put Joyland on my To Read list for after the vacation, since I am not likely to lug an actual book in addition to the Kindle. I am saving the latest John Sandford "Prey" novel for the trip. I guess I'll just have to hope I don't read that one too quickly.

Yup, what Scott said. But the lines do move quite quickly, from what I've seen. My flight out next Sunday is at 6:25 am (!), so I am hoping that the terminal won't be hopping with activity at that unholy hour.

My family and I have refilled our Bobbles with water at the reusable mug stations. We have also filled them with water at the self-service soda stations in the parks. As long as we're only filling with water, the CMs don't have a problem with it.


Did I mention that I now have only SEVEN DAYS until my trip?????
