I am sure others are going to ask: what colors?

Thanks!

I would assume it's going to be at least a week or so before they "turn on" the machines. If someone checked in Friday or Saturday and bought an old mug they wouldn't be able to get a drink.

Those corner rooms are deluxe rooms.

Thanks so much. I think we just ask for a room near 1501 - if it's first floor, it's better than not having a full balcony. I appreciate the pics, they definitely help!!

I honestly have no idea if you can .. If I were you I would call and ask not that I think anyone there really knows how they are really going to work, but all they can say is I don't know or tell you how to go about it. Keep in mind this is all still in the testing phase as far as I know. I'm wondering what happens for my next 2 trips.. will I use the same band or will I have to get another?!? When I was there last month I was sitting at the bar at HH's talking to the woman who was behind the bar and she was on the team that is rolling out the magic bands and she told me not to be surprised if I had the magic band for September and that it would probably work for the remaining trips! So we shall see!!

Good luck!!

Yes they have. We checked in this morning and just went to get our mugs as we have a package. They did scan each mug and explained how they will work for the length of our stay. We ate at POR for lunch and they have them already as well. While I do like the fact that you can get refills at any resort CS with these mugs, the downfall is that I was told they will no longer work once we check out. I'm going to ask someone else to confirm this. If this is the case, it will stink for those who check out but still have the day to hang out at the resort due to later flights.

And the colors are purple, green and orange...

Urgh we have had problems with our train journey today, stuck at Easingwold for an hour because of a points failure less than an hour from home! Then we find out after the journey began again another 7 trains were delayed behind ours. Then we were told that our train wasn't going all the way to the airport because it was so late. They wanted a quick turnabout so it could make up some time going back to Middlesbrough. We had to haul our cases across Manchester Piccadilly up and down flights of stairs as they had no lifts, so we could eventually get here at the hotel just outside the airport via the shuttle bus. Just trying to chill out before tomorrow.

On the upside we met and chatter to a lovely lady called Julie and her sun Nathan who were also on the train , she used to live in Florida and she was stressed out with all the problems today we hopefully helped to calm her nerves a little and helped her navigate across the railway station with their cases. DH gave her and her son some assistance with those since they were heavy and it's just the kind of guy he is. We wished her a pleasant journey for tomorrow they are flying to Barbados .

Keeping our fingers crossed that this bad luck is now over, see you all soon.

lobster/seafood roll at HH's......

Word of warning for any New Englanders who are excited to see the lobster/seafood roll on the menu at Hurricane Hannas.....it is NOT what we are used to. It looks delicious, and im a seafood fanatic, but i couldnt eat it. It is very citrusy and some other weird flavors, not at all the buttery/mayonnaisey goodness we have at home.

I have issued this warning before....

It's definitely not like any lobster roll I had ever had....

I didn't finish mine either.

If you have a certificate, add it in under my disney experience as an older ticket purchased before February. It should have a second barcode number under the confirmation barcode that will work. That's what I did! Staying in the Beach Club in September! We have FP+ and MagicBands that should arrive tomorrow!

I'll try it- can't hurt right? Our trip isn't until December, hopefully all the 'bugs' will be worked out by then!!!

Thanks for the warning! I am very picky about my seafood, as I grew up in New England and never had frozen seafood until I started moving around the country.

I think I read somewhere that there is one at the Boardwalk that is better.

First day - mini trip report...

Hello all!!! I'm here at the YC CL... It is AWESOME. The room is slightly bigger than the one we had at BC, and the fact that the balcony door slides instead of opens makes the room seem even bigger. We have a lovely chair with an ottoman and a view of the gazebo with a side view of the lagoon. Room 5152.

We got the Magic Bands are CL staff helped us so much to make our stay wonderful. When the other family came, they couldn't use MDE because of a problem with entering in the name of our city (I had the same problem last year and spent an hour on with tech support before it was resolved). So, they couldn't make FP+ reservations. Staff was incredible and just gave the other family 3 anytime FPs per day on their bands so that we can all go together. Also matched our lunchtime BOG FPs as well. They had to try a couple of times to get the room keys working, but we just drank beer.

The surprise was incredible. We told our kids in Toronto and my DD would not stop hugging me. This is the DD that isn't very demonstrative! They wouldn't go to Epcot on Saturday morning because they wanted to make sure that we were around for the surprise of the other kids. You should have seen their faces! I will do a TR when I get home - I have video.... I think the other DS might have been close to passing out when he came around the corner in the lounge and saw us.

Spent the first night at Pop. The room was clean, and perfectly fine. We had a delay at Toronto airport so after a 3 1/2 hour flight to get there, we had another 7 hour wait to get the flight. Arrival time was originally 11:20, and we arrived at 2:30 am (which is 4 am at home for us). My son was up for 22 hours straight (so were we all) so it was beyond rough. The aircraft was very squatty, and then sharing double beds was difficult after all that. Got up in the morning at hit Everything Pop. My GOD that food court was madness! The lineups were huge. I just wanted a Mickey waffle kids meal and it took forever to even get to the front of the line. The poor CM who was working there was completely alone, and she had to dish up the food and do the "make your own yogurt parfait" station herself. She kept running out of things and nobody was helping her - she had to leave and get more supplies. There was a cook who kept bringing trays of waffles but otherwise it was allllll her. It was loud and chaotic, and we got the heck out of there as soon as possible. We arrived at the YC and were whisked up to the 5th floor immediately for check-in. Sooooo nice. DH was like, "OK, NOW I get why you want to stay here!" I could totally imagine having a great holiday at Pop, and it had some awesome theming elements, but once you get used to a Deluxe, you get totally spoiled rotten.

This is getting too long... LOL We had a good dinner at Via Napoli last night. The service was NOWHERE NEAR what we had at Tutto Italia last year, but the pizzas were great. We were in this long room off to the side, and it was like noise was amplified, so I found it extremely loud.

Had a touch of bad luck - I was coming in from the balcony and tripped on an open suitcase and fell hard onto the corner of the table. What a goose egg! Scared my DH to death. No concussion, but it was a hard smack. Black eye and very sore head today. Not enough to keep me out of the MK for just after RD! Used all our FPs and had an awesome day. BOG lunch was incredible with the FP.

In the room with wine and snacks and ice on my knee (still swollen from the fall) Literally threw money at the kids to go to the arcade. LOL

Staff at CL is amazing. Love them all! No idea what the recent bad reviews are all about. No clue at all.

More tomorrow...

Thanks!!!

I don't know how much I was get to check in and read posts but I can try to answer what I can... I was disappointed that the MBs didn't work for SAB since they were trying it earlier. Hard to keep track of cards and bracelets!!!

I thought I read that the lobster roll at the Boardwalk Bakery is more like the traditional New England one.

Here's an article and the picture from it:

Sorry about your fall but I'm so glad you are enjoying the YC. It's my favorite resort.

I hope you keep posting. I love living vicariously through my Dis friends!!
