BOOKED MY FLIGHT. At least the flight down... LOL

SO, Dee, you can add me to the list: YC CL GV from August 17th to August 24th. We arrive on August 16th but I am going to book one night at Pop or some other Value since we arrive at 11:30 p.m. and we won't get our luggage for a few hours anyway. I will have to really plan packing. Should be interesting trying to organize that for Amelia since she will be with my sister! I won't be able to pack for her!!! I'll have to get my sister to do her laundry while she's out there. LOL

Upgraded to CL!

On our trip in April, we upgraded our tx to annual passes. Unfortunately, the Disney website doesn't recognize the upgraded AP passes yet (with the RDIF) and I get no information from Disney. I just found out AP got a summer discount higher then the VISA one that came out, so I upgraded us to CL for our Yacht Club July trip!

Also, I was able to get a ressies for the Wishes Dessert Party. DD recently discovered a love of choc. covered strawberries on our trip in April, so I thought this would be a great venue to get them. So, we have two new things for us to do this vacation. I'm keeping both on the DL to help us have a magical trip.

Thanks for the tip! I am going to add this request to my reservation... We have already asked to be close to our friends that are also booking YC CL.

Another vote for the cab. We did the bus/monorail thing to get to 'Ohana from the resort last year and it totally wasn't worth it at all. Took a cab back to the resort, and learned our lesson!

I thought I was going to love this sandwich, but I thought the flavors did not mesh well. The Beaches and Cream grilled cheese was so much better.

I know, but was wondering if anyone did the Disney Fine Arts Photography photo session with your family. If so how did it go? Is it worth the $? (And how much is it nowadays and what does that get you?) And did you do it at Y&BC? I really don't have too many pictures of all 3 of us together, usually one of us is taking the pictures haha. Thanks!

Jiko is one of our FAVORITE restaurants. I can't help with the transportation because we usually rent a car (or stay at AKL) but it's well worth it.

Quickest is a taxi. We do that for all resort to resort ADRs no matter where we stay.

But otherwise, boat to DHS and bus to AKL would work. I would allow at least 75 minutes if you use that method.

Last option is to get on whichever bus comes first to YC then transfer to AKL at its final destination. I would also allow at least 75 minutes for this.

If you are able to email (or text) the picture to me, I can post it. You can email me at beachclubdee @ yahoo.com

And yes, I seriously did have an email on that account this morning from Susan Hacker (note that name) from NIGERIA telling me I was entitled to $4,000,000 in USD.

Natebenma, I am sorry to tell you this, but Susan Hacker already promised me that money. As soon as it comes, I am going to book a full year at the YC CL Lagoon View with the deluxe dining plan. And if I need clean undies or clean clothes, Amazon prime will be my friend. After all, found money should be spent as rapidly as possible.

Until then, my GV BC room for a week in June will have to do.

Thanks for the update. It is so funny how different people report the fly situation so differently. I wonder if there is something that attracts them to certain people like bright clothing, hair color, etc? Hoping they move out of the area by Friday. Would also love to hear about Marakesh. It one of our ADR's next week.

You're first after me! LOL . Susan has been promising those funds to me for many years! LOL ... Of course I'd share the wealth

Dee, I'll take a ton of our room, 5636, which is GVCL (BC) to post to the other thread when I get back. It's a great room, overlooking a courtyard with volleyball net. It's right down the hall from the lounge and elevators but still very quiet. "Kiddie-corner" from the Newport Suite. It's facing Epcot (away from SAB), so we can see the Illuminations high fireworks. Dormer balcony, two chairs and a small table. Awesome at night. Daybed/sofa.
