Weather is overcast and humid but actually not very hot. Guess that's the plus side of a rainy forecast.

I didn't post much on this thread, but truly appreciate all the info it contains. I feel like I already know the resort even though I've never stayed here. Thanks!
Have a great time!

It has been so long since I took an under 10 year old, that I am so enjoying just watching her read the Disney World book I got her and her making her ride list. 5 days is not going to be enough, but then it never is to me.

Disney lover Judy ps we did get the Belle dress done, so Zoey has 10 outfits for 5 days!
BC CL SV (starting tomorrow)
Would love to see those dresses in action! Are you posting pictures or a trip report? opcorn

Woo Hoo !

Can you all tell me what is a good tip for Mousekeeping? Should I leave an envelope daily with something. Just curious what most people do.

Also for Club Level if I bring a gift from home for the lounge CM's How many should I bring and when do you give them their gifts at the end of the trip or the beginning? Again just curious.

Thank you
For Mousekeeping I leave $5 dollars a day in envelopes decorated by my daughter before we leave home.

Our next visit is my first CL, but based on advice from the Disboards, I plan on bringing some sort of local treat that the staff can share.

Thank you for posting these. Don't love the rooftop, but looking left is a beautiful view. I could live with that!

We had to move to standard view, so I'm nervous about that, but I'll just cross my fingers that all goes well.
Dee, our new dates are 6/28-7/7.

Can anyone give me some feedback on SVCL rooms? I asked for a full balcony and daybed, not knowing anything about room configurations or views other than parking lot or roof top. After having looked at the photo thread, some of the SVCL room views actually don't look that bad to me.

Teena and Robyn, I'm thinking we won't make the Disers meet, as we'll be on the road before the roosters crow on 7/7, but looking forward to meeting you all at the resort!
I'll change your dates when I have a chance. Need to go through today's thread changes and take notes.

Have you seen this thread on the Photo Board?

I have been following this thread for a while now and have decided to finally join in the fun! We (me, DH, DS13 & DD11) are staying at BC club level 8/22 - 8/31. I love this thread and all the info and tips. I made my final reservation (Dessert Party) today so now all I can do is wait. Thanks to all for making the wait so much easier!

Hmmm. All you have to do is wait???? OR you will learn a few bad habits here on this thread and find yourself rearranging your ADRs over and over again!!!!!

Welcome!!!

We're thinking about doing the Illuminations Cruise from the YC marina. Does anyone know what time you have to arrive at the dock at for boarding. Is it 8:30? We have dinner ADR's on both possible nights, if available and I'm wondering if I need to change them. Both are in Epcot WS so not too far away.
