Now people on another forum have me freaking out because they all seem to swear by online check in to get your requests fulfilled and someone even said online check in guests have their requests filled first so those who don't use it may be out of luck.

My one and only request was for a full balcony. And I know I could have gone to another resort and had one guaranteed but none of them appealed to me as much as BC so I took a chance.

We check in Friday so I assume its too late for online check in to make a difference. Crossing my fingers that I may still have my request filled without having done it.

Whether or not you do online check in has ZERO affect on whether you get your requests met. It also has ZERO affect on getting any pixie dust. I really wish they would consider changing the name of that process from online check in to online preregistration because that is ALL you are doing. I'm not trying to sway you either way, just wanted to clarify.

The flies are unusually thick, especially in MK. At Liberty Tree Tavern, they were SO bad, one landed in DS soda mid-slurp mid-meal causing such a disturbance (that I minimized but alerted a manager) that we were comped his meal and received a free fast pass voucher for a MK ride for not making a scene. I felt bad for the CM's.

I emailed WDW last week because we tried to add a room for my family members who are joining us last minute but our discount was no longer open. I've been told before that you can have up to three rooms on one discount but have never tried to add one this late in the game. After a few failed attempts I emailed WDW and I got a call yesterday and they extended the discount to my sister's room! Saved her almost $600!!!!!

This will be our 11th trip to WDW and I appreciate them looking out for their repeat guests! Just had to share my win!!!

Also decided to splurge this year and ordered limos for to and from the airport at home.

22 days to go!!!!

We used a cab yesterday to travel to AK for an early breakfast and the van had the carseat for our 9 month old. I just requested a carseat at the valet stand.

I can tell you we did online check in and full balcony was our only request and it was not met.

SueM, have not tried the lobster and shrimp roll from HH. I doubt if we will. Saw someone order it yesterday and it looked nasty! Who knows, Jim might get really hungry and it eat one. I will let you know.

The lobster roll from HH must be a "hit or miss" thing. We've had it a couple of times and thought it was good. Not like ones here in New England, but still quite tasty.

I think you are right. One recent guest ordered it two days in a row. The first day she really enjoyed it and the second day, not so much.

I plan to give it a try, but the BW lobster roll is also very tempting!!!

Just 40 days until our first stay at BC CL 1 bedroom suite. Can't wait! Friends are staying at YC CL. Can they come to BC CL to hang out with us?

I miss the Yacht Club and I miss this thread! We had such a perfect stay (well, except for the weather) and now I'm hooked! We did finally get one great day of sunshine and we fully enjoyed Stormalong Bay, rented a Sea Raycer, and ate at Beaches and Cream.

DD has a severe peanut allergy, and she saw other kids eating ice cream with Oreos for the Mickey ears. I knew they would open a new container of ice cream to avoid cross-contamination, but was also pleasantly surprised that they also had separate packages of Oreos in the back that were not near the peanuts. It might seem like a small thing, but it was just so nice that she could enjoy something that most people take for granted.

The service throughout the resort was phenomenal! Everyone was so helpful. I think that's what is drawing me back.
