If they pull the fridges out of YC and BC during your stay, maybe you could rent out space in your fridge.

I'm glad we're checking out on the 18th! I looked yesterday and there were still rooms available at the 30% GP discount. We originally booked the 30% discount but were able to change it to the 35% bounceback discount when we were at OKW last month.

This is helpful, thank you. I was going to pack a collapsible cooler, but really didn't want to give up the valuable real estate in my suitcase.

Really hoping this is done at BC before we arrive at the end of August. I may have to do a lot of re-thinking and re-budgeting, especially about breakfast, if I can't find a way to keep milk, yogurt and other perishable stuff in the room.

If anyone goes soon and gets more information about time frame on this, please post here.

Edited to add: Where can you get ice (and lots of it!) on property? We will not have a car this trip.

Pop Tarts and bananas for breakfast

Save space in the cooler for beer

It appears there is something to the left of Fantasia Gardens that crosses this road. We are staying at BCV for the first time in October and thought we might try this one afternoon. TIA for your help.

Thanks y'all! I knew I could count on the folks here to be so hospitable!
