I can't take it anymore. I want to go to sleep so I can get on my 6:30am plane and check into the YC.

[QUOTE=BlueSkies;49292278]

Went thru the first few pages...lots of good info ..just as I thought! but I do have a question...

Does the YC lounge close totally between food offering times??? We are used to being able to get coffee and cold drinks at the GF all day long...

Our most recent YC CL stay was November -- this was how it worked then:

For the inbetween times (when they are switching over) it is closed. But you can just ask a CM and they will get you whatever you need from backstage.

Overnight, they leave it open so that you have beverage access.

We usually grab a few sodas or a couple of beers for the room fridge just in case.

Ok so I finally figured out how to work the whole MDE Fast Pass + thing! I'm not sure if I like this or not... Anyway I have it all set up for my September 18-23 trip! I added DH UCT ticket so he's all set up too Now to wait and see if MagicBands come my way! Hopefully the ME vouchers will arrive soon... for now we just wait

Nothing is showing up yet for my October/November trip... but when I click on the calendar within itinerary it only gives dates through 10/14... maybe soon that trip will be able to be set up!

Good luck to all setting up now!

I like the idea of QS dinner in Epcot maybe after we have some drinks and apps in CL.
Sunshine Seasons has a nice food court with a good selection of food for a QS dinner. We have also done the Mexican counter service place. It is a nice place to eat and look out over the lake. Some people like the food at Morocco. There is the American Pavilion with standard burger and fries type food. And some people love the fish and chips at the booth outside Rose and Crown. And then there are the fantastic looking sandwiches, soups and desserts at France's bakery. There are a lot of choices in Epcot. I'm sure I am missing lots of them. We almost always eat our lunch at Epcot on arrival day, since it seems like our room is seldom ready when we arrive, usually around 1:30pm.

Looking forward to meeting up with all the guests that are there now and coming in soon on Sunday and Monday before I head off to Vegas to help set up Jeanne's classroom on Tuesday.
Glad to hear they made it home safe & sound and you know what the say Teena, "out of the mouths of babes"....too cute and too funny! Three more sleeps and we'll be "home"...can't wait to see you.

Want to catch Illuminations and then go to bed. Past trips we've had lunch and headed straight to MK then back to the hotel to swim and it went really well. But we got in a bit earlier and we were staying at WL and CR so it was super convenient. I was just saying to DH it will be strange not going to MK first thing, we won't even see MK till the next evening!!! But we both agreed it was fine, we're going with our usual convenience and leisurely pace plan. So pool and Epcot it is.
I had also booked Mexico for dinner for our first night and I already scrapped it. At first I thought the kids would like it, but after thinking (aka obsessing) over the menu for a while, I decided to play it safe and I switched us to Via Napoli instead. I also think its going to be weird not to see MK until the day after we arrive....its always been the first thing we run to, but this year we are switching it up. If you can call waiting a whole 18 additional hours switching it up!

We are staying YC 9/17 - 22 and booked FP+ last night. Like many though not able to order Magic bands yet. Wish could schedule Illuminations, now that would be something I would really like!

Nannette, HOW DID YOU ENTER YOUR DHs UCT tickets???? MDE won't let me enter mine. I have a few hours of today left to be able to make FP+ reservations... I called Tech support and they said I had to be present to get my UCT linked to my reservation...

I just linked our UCT tix yesterday. It took my DH's but won't accept mine. Practically had to get a magnifying glass out to read the code on the tix though so maybe I entered mine wrong.

Most have not been able to customize MB at this point.

I am not really sure on the process, but I believe that this involves logging into to your My Disney Experience account, and updating info if it is not there. There should be a tab that appears allowing you to make FP+ ressies.



If you are a
I just checked as I am staying at the Yacht Club and I have been able to make fastpass+ selections as of today (Thursday).

Ok I'm thinking about dining locations for one day of our trip that we have FP+ selections in DHS planned but no meals organised yet. It's not long to go now I know but I was wondering, if we end up not going to ESPN or B&C , how is the food at Cape May Cafe? Would you recommend the food there or not? We are not shellfish food lovers. I'm thinking TS dinner options since our FP+ are from mid- morning to mid afternoon with a window of opportunity for a CS lunch. The options in DHS don't appeal and we already have a reservation at 50's PT on another date.

Hi Dee, Just wanted to let you know that I am staying at BCV's for the September trip through my DVC and I am able to set up the fast pass + stuff... I don't know if that drives a magic band or not but I have fast pass times (3) set.
