Soooooo glad we decided to stay here.
Room is large and clean and beautiful. We have a garden view on the 4th floor and the view is of a lush area of the resort. We can hear the laughter from SAB thru the trees.
Hooray for vacation!!!
That is awesome!!!!

Just wanted to bump this cause I was afraid my question was going to get buried/lost.
Hoping someone can assure me that cash is good at arcade.

TIA, Karen

Sounds like a perfect way to start your vacation. Thats exactly what I hope to do when we arrive in 2 weeks.
Just wondering what kind of lunch can you get at HH?
Have a great vacation, sounds like you're off to a good start.

Thanks,

Karen

In the almost ten years I've worked there, I've never set foot in the arcade. So I'm sorry but I have no idea.

Thats a relief. I really dont like to go in the arcade but for whatever reason my DGrandsons love it I could just see them going around swiping their MBs to play the games and then me having an enormous arcade bill. Well thats one thing I wont have to worry about.

I asked the boys and they said you transfer cash to tokens. There is a change machine in the arcade.

PS. Sorry for actually being helpful. I will stop doing that and resort to my comedic posts ASAP.

You can have their magic bands with no charging privileges on them.

Hi Everyone!

Getting back to real life is not easy! I wanted to be sure to post the photos of our room since YC Deluxe room pics seem to be hard to come by. Please let me know if you have any questions about the room. It was CL, but on the 4th floor.

Our room...


View from the room door...


Sitting area, opposite couch...


Bedroom with door to balcony...


Looking from beds toward TV, windows looking at BC...


Pool view from balcony...


Pool view looking left from balcony...


I just love the envelopes DD did so much, I had to post one more time ...

You use cash for 'coins' on an arcade card. Slide the arcade card as they play to decrement their coins.
