Do they even have nappies for birds?? Pampers for pidgeons??? Huggies for hawks?

I'm at a loss...

We are checking in on the 26th, just wondering if there are pool noodles available for purchase at the BC and if so, how much they cost?

Thank you!!

I saw some in the Marketplace two weeks ago. I think they were $4.99, but I'm not sure.

Home from YC

We are home from our wonderful stay at the Yacht Club. I cannot say enough good things about this resort. Our room was in great shape with a fantastic view of the lagoon & we could see Illuminations fireworks from our balcony. Mousekeeping was terrific this trip and kept us well stocked in supplies & had our room cleaned by the time we returned for our mid-day break. Also, much to my surprise, we had turn-down service even though we weren't staying club level.

We thoroughly enjoyed Stormalong Bay. We had no trouble finding chairs mid-afternoon. We did have to use our key cards for access though as the Magic Band scanners weren't operational. And the drinks from the bar are sooo good too

Transportation was great. We never had a long wait for either buses or boats. And the walk to Epcot was convenient as well.

We were glad to have the opportunity to test the Magic Bands. Personally, we liked them very much. There was a little glitch with one of our bands at the airport getting on the Magical Express & another one upon checking in, but both were resolved. We had selected our FP+ before we left home. It was so nice to "sleep in" on our Epcot day, knowing that we already had secured Soarin' fastpasses for 9:00-10:00 a.m. & could just walk over at our leisure.

But the thing that really sticks in my mind is the high level of service at the resort. Each and every CM we encountered was helpful and friendly while seeming genuinely interested in providing service. This was our third stay at the YC and now I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

LoL you are keeping my mind off the pain in my toe!

Now I need to rethink my packed footwear. I think it may well be 11 nights in flip flops

Weather is gorgeous! Wish we could live here year round and be that much closer to family and WDW! I keep telling the office we need an East Coast location but they aren't biting yet...

Sorry to break up the poop talk but I have a question with the new mug business coming up...

DH and I are just staying 4 nights, but we enjoy our daily coffee in the morning on our walk to the park as well as something to drink on our way back. Will we have to go out of our way to fill mugs? I'm used to Pop Century where the mug refill station is on the way to and from the bus pick up. If we have to go farther away, I'll just bring our plastic refillable water bottles and some crystal light single packs and drink water and pay OOP for coffee.

Segue from that paragraph...can I take my hard plastic water bottle into the park? (think the camelback water bottle with the straw)

That's what I saw too, in mid-July.

The Ale & Compass lounge, in the YC lobby (or close to it) has fresh brewed coffee in the morning. As far as I know you will be able to use your refill mug there- you can now and I haven't heard that is going to change.

The only thing is, it is only a refill area until 11 or noon when the bar opens for the day. When you are returning from the parks, I think you would need to stop at the Marketplace or the Hurricane Hanna's refill station near Stormalong Bay

Yes, you can bring a reusable, hard plastic water bottle to the parks. No glass (I think) and definitely no alcohol, but those are the only restrictions I can think of at the moment.

Epcot today!
So that must get you some looks in the park - and I'm guessing your husband is getting his share of looks too! I agree with NM, go for the mad tour group story.

Thank goodness we are off to the beach and not Disney!
While we all appreciate how catchy Disney fever is, you should not be trying to keep up with Feckless by catching her tripitis! Not a good trend!

If Feckless gets home and spots a moose with a black eye, she'll know he tripped in her front yard.
