If it rains it'll be a quick thunderstorm and move on. We live just south of Jacksonville, FL and joke we can set our watches by the the 4 o'clock shower.

dansdad is right- better to ask for what you want instead of specific room numbers. Please note that "Water View" is not a request, but is a booking category. Now if you want a lagoon view instead of pool view, that would be part of your request.

So your room request (called in to Disney CRO), would be something like "We would prefer a room close to elevator/lobby as my husband has degenerative back disease" "If possible, view of lagoon"/"If possible, view of pool"- whichever is your preference.
Thanks so much!! We are very excited!! We have been looking forward to getting back to the Yacht club. The last two times we stayed at AKL and as beautiful as it is... we just longed to be back at the Yacht club!!!

Thanks a bunch both of you. It sounds a lot like Hawaii weather (minus the thunder...usually) I can deal with that!

Now I'm wondering if the "Good" lobster rolls are over at the Boardwalk bakery!

In our town we have what we call the "Chinese restaurant phenomena". We are convinced that there is only one really good Chinese restaurant chef, and that he/she goes from one new Chinese restaurant to the next. As soon as a new Chinese restaurant opens the older place starts messing everything up and the food is not so good. The only good Chinese food in town is always the new place, so we've come up with this theory that the new chef is stolen away from the old place and that's why this happens!

Perhaps we can send the flies over to do some investigating for us and find out just what exactly is going on with these lobster/seafood rolls!

If it were me, I would just go naked, that way you will dry off quicker. I know my boys like that light weight performance dry tech or whatever it is called, polyester. Their coaches make them practice in all kinds of weather and they say they dry off pretty quickly when wearing that stuff. It even comes in shorts.

We leave for the BC next Thursday, can't wait!

Silly question, we're probably gonna be arriving at the BC around 11:30am, would you have a lunch at Beaches & Cream or walk over to Epcot and go to the Chefs de France?

Would you save B&C for your pool day at the hotel?

Thanks

Well, that would be one way to clear the crowds at the parks. 2 naked 50/60 "somethings" .......Not pretty! Haha!

We've done it both ways and you can't go wrong with either. In both instances, while we were eating, we got the text saying our room was now available. After finishing, we went back to change and straight to the pool

Thanks That's what we were planning. Checkin in, having lunch and then spending the day at the pool. Since we'd be in regular clothes, I thought it may be easier trying Chefs and saving B&C for our other all day at the pool day, since we're already there.

Do you know if B&C allows you to eat there if you're wearing bathing suit coverups?

I think so. I know we were in the pool last June when the rain came and several people went to eat there to wait it out. I didn't see anyone turned away in proper coverups but we didn't stay to be sure.

OT, but Chefs is one of our FAVORITE lunches at EPCOT (only second to Rose N Crown) so you made a yummi first day choice!

Jim just had the lobster roll from HH. He was not impressed at all! BW Bakery was much better. Oh and he had 2 baby duck nibbling at his toes as we ate.

Sure. We saw this a few weeks ago when we were there. You can also order for take out and enjoy at a table outside.

Oh!!! I bet the baby ducks were so cute

Kind of wonder why the Lobster rolls from HH and BW bakery have to be so different??!! You'd think they could make the same kind.

See!!!!! I told you guys!!! It's the Chinese Restaurant Chef Phenomena" only this time with the lobster rolls!

Now we have to plan an intervention to get the Lobsters BACK to Hurricane Hannah's! Perhaps a midnight march of the lobsters is in order?? We can put little fake mustaches on them so they won't be recognized on the boat.

Just hanging out tomorrow, dinner at Yachtsman, will keep posting. If any one has questions ask and I will try to answer.

Saw some flys near Hurricane Hannah's, but not many.
Oh MAN!! I so hope that we get that room in a few days! What day are you leaving? I'd be happy to have THAT view.
