OMG I laughed so hard at this!! That Banana Bunny is a conniving little bugger! What would be really fun is if some of the Disney Characters wrote to Banana bunny and reminisced about their adventures during the extended stay so that DD could read it. It would have to be written by some one that knows about Banana Bunny and DD relationship so that the characters could reference things that would be known about Bunny and DD....

I think you should have JanetMom go all Mary Poppins and escort DD through the airport and all the way to WDW!

I hope all goes well for you tomorrow. The Toronto airport doesn't have as much shopping as MCO, but hopefully you will find a way to pass the time.
I don't know about her still holding out until the bitter end.... Her DS recently got a hold of the credit card and ordered some "Truth Serum" to slip in her breakfast Sunken Treasure... I just hope the video cameras are rolling when she tells the kiddos. Janet! Keep your windows open and listen for the screaming!

I am ready and waiting to do my part! I've just pressed my nanny outfit and at the first sign of a scream I'll open my umbrella and fly on over to the airport.

I'm made for this role... Mary Poppins is my all time favourite Disney character. I can sing all the words to every song. Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay, Um diddle diddle diddle um diddle ay ...

So we are t minus 15 days and Dh asks if we can switch to poly. I have been driving myself crazy with this whole mb thing and now this. I was really looking forward to being so close to Epcot and having a sunken treasure or two and meeting Teena. Now I don't know what to do. I do like the poly. I guys we will see what tomorrow brings. Sweet dreams everyone.

Thank you!

I wouldn't wait for the email. I don't arrive at YC till Tuesday so I won't know till then if I actually get my magicbands. I customised them and I've made all my FP+ reservations because it appeared on the app, but I never got the email inviting me. However, I did get an email to say they've been shipped to resort so fingers crossed I'll get them.

Thanks for getting back to me It all becomes a bit scary when there is 5 of you

Maybe you'll get lucky and the Polynesian won't have any rooms available.

The only hiccup? DH just told me yesterday that his boss (who I actually really like) and his fiancée and 2 other couples from work (that I've never met) are coming down on our dates and want to stay at BC. I foresee a lot of work conversations.... Hoping they'll all get annoyed spending much of the day standing in character lines .


I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list. BCV?

soda (coke, diet coke, pepsi, diet pepsi, mt. dew & sprite) 12 pack, 12 oz cans are $4.99 each.

water: Nestle, 1/2 liter bottles, 32 bottles (case) $7.99 or 6 pack $2.49 or Crystal Geyser, 1/2 litter bottles 24 bottles (case) $6.99 or 6 pk $2.19.

Delivery fee is $7.50 to all Disney Resorts including Swan and Dolphin. If your hotel is not on the list it's $10 to $15 depending on location.

It also states to call for delivery fees (407) 828-8125 and all online orders are $7.50.

The last part is slightly confusing, but I think it's safe to say if your staying onsite it's only $7.50 with no minimum $ amount needed and since they deliver to all resorts for the yc/bc/bcv it should go directly to that resort not the convention center. Hope this helps.
Thanks so much for that info!!! Really helpful! I am going to include this info in a post in the FAQ section on page 1.

We are having a fabulous trip this time! Loved Animal Kingdom Lodge, but the while family agreed, when we walk into the Beach Club, it just feels like home. We tried quite a few new things this time, like Sanaa and I got my DD to finally go on Expedition Everest, which she loved. I have used quite a few tips found on this board, including the drawstring backpack Dee suggested with the zip locks for ponchos and later wet items. It poured on us the other day, but stopped raining later in the day. It was great to toss wet items in the ziplock. Thanks for the tip Dee!

Tomorrow, we might take the girls to the first Fantasmic show. Hoping to make it to SAB tomorrow or Saturday, and then see Teena on Sunday. I'll try to check in again. Hope everyone here now is having as much fun as us!

Thanks for checking in!!!

So glad to hear the string-bag/Ziploc info came in handy for you.

(Anyone who may have missed the original info can check out "String-Bag Theory", one of the last posts in the "Other Useful Info" Post 14 on Page 1 of this thread)

September Fast Pass Plus and Magic Bands

Here is what we learned yesterday about September guests and Fast Pass Plus/Magic Bands:

It looks like the Beach Club Resort and Yacht Club Resort will both be involved in the testing. Nannette was also able to book FP+ experiences for her September BCV stay.

May be some issues with booking FP+ for AP guests- try calling tech support if you are having issues (and be prepared to spend a lot of time as they try to fix the issue)

If the process is like it was in August, guests won't get emails until about 17 days before their trip, but can still update their FP+ preferences by going in to their My Disney Experience accounts.

Unclear whether Magic Bands can be customized for all guests, and especially for AP holders. If the system will let you, do it. If it won't, don't panic.

Again, if you have more info or experiences to share, let us know.

We're checking in at Beach Club tomorrow from our split stay at Pop. Is there anyone there now who knows if they are using the RFID mugs? They aren't here at Pop, and I was hoping to still be able to use the same mugs over there.

I think Banana just wanted to hang out at SAB with Buzzy and Johnny Depp

(Banana is my DDs favorite stuffed animal - we left him there Saturday)
Yay! Excellent news! I can't wait to hear all of Banana's stories about her extra vacation time with JD and Buzzy!

Not yet. The RFID-enabled machines are there, but no mugs yet. Possibly by the end of the month.

I have added a BREAKING NEWS section to the very beginning of the thread. Lots of developing news on Refrigerators, FP+/MB and Rapid Refill Mugs.


BREAKING NEWS!!! (August 16, 2013)

CMs at the Yacht and Beach Club have been told that all defective refrigerators have been swapped out at both resorts. All rooms should now have a working fridge.

It looks like September guests of the Beach Club, Yacht Club and probably BCV will be involved in testing of the Fast Pass Plus system by logging in to their My Disney Experience accounts. For info, start reading around page 215 of this thread.

The Rapid Refill Reusable Mugs have not appeared at the resort as of mid-August, but the RFID-enabled dispensers have been set up, so this program will probably be starting soon. Possibly by the end of the month. For more info about the Rapid Refill Mugs, read the post in the FAQ section of this page, Post 13.

Hi there! We're one of the August YC/BC Disers heading out today. I regret not keeping up with this thread more since you all are such a friendly group! Looking forward to some SAB fun among many other things on my list.
