Have a nice swing on the chandelier for old NM will ya!

PS I'm busy writing a trip report!.... But it's not necessarily for a trip that I went on, or one that's even happened yet. Stay tuned for further details!
Ugh NM, I had my gb out last October and leading up to it was rough! A piece of baked chicken would send me into orbit. When is your surgery? Life is great now that that thing is out. :-)

What we have heard is that the club lounge on the 5th floor of the BC is going to be expanded. The lounge will be relocated to the Presidential Suite while work is done there.

Rooms will undergo refurb- not exactly sure what that entails- but we have been told that it will happen a floor at a time, starting on 5. The CMs will do their best to keep any construction disruption from the guests.

Have not heard anything about the Marketplace or SAB. Parts of SAB will be worked on starting in January. This happens annually. A third of the feature pool is refurbed at a time from Jan to Feb. Two-thirds of the pool remain open through the whole process

Hope that helps for now, but as we learn more, we will post the news
I read on another thread that there was a refurb in October. So I just googled Disney World reburbishments and came up with this.

Peter Pan is cutting it close with being closed for my whole trip. Hopefully it runs on schedule or is completed early. One of my favorites!

What are "hard goods" refurbs?

Drum roll.....

I'm registered for the Princess Half Marathon!!!!

I'm excited, scared, freaking out, but mostly very happy. Lots of training to do to get ready, but I've got lots of lead time (8 months). I'm also going on my own - very tough decision. DH and I agreed that having the kids there would make it tough to get the rest I'll need pre and post race, so a solo trip it is. Never thought I'd do Disney without the family! There is a chance that one of my best friends may join me. And if she is, I may consider getting a room at BC. I just can't justify it on my own, especially when we'll have just been there in October, but if it's split two ways...? That might work. It honestly would be so nice to be able to walk back for a restful afternoon at BC after the race is done. If my legs will be able to carry me there by then. :D

K... off to bed if I can quash the excitement enough to fall asleep...
Yay! I'll be there but not at BC or YC -- probably POR. The Princess Half is lots of fun! I did it in 2012 using the Jeff Galloway beginner run/walk training plan because I had never run a step in my life, so if I did it, I'm positive anyone else can!

In true NM fashion I refused to give up my summer and requested that the surgery be put off until late August! The request was fortunately approved!

For those of you heading to the BC/YC and you are worried about the rain...

Don't forget that the rain brings cooler temps and lower crowds in the parks! Consider revising your touring plan IF the forecast says rain in the afternoon by getting in that swim in Storm Along Bay (SAB) either earlier in the morning or later at night. I think SAB closes at 10:00pm and a dip in the pool or hot tub is perfect after a hard day of touring. The quiet pools have hot tubs that are open pretty much at all hours so keep that in mind as well.

Also I'd like to remind all our rain warriors to consider throwing flip flops in your park back pack and changing from your sneakers when it starts to rain. You'll keep your sneaks dry in the back pack and you'll keep on going while all the other park guests are huddled under the awnings and in the stores waiting out the rain. I love walking by those folks knowing they won't be in line when I get to my next ride!

IF your sneakers don't fit in your back pack you can stop in any Disney store and request a shopping bag to stash them in until you are ready to put them back on!

With a little preparation you can manage quite nicely in the rain and take advantage of the benefits that this circumstance presents!

Just keep swimming!



~NM

Yes, lots of walkers! I did the run/walk thing, with about half of it walking and finished easily and felt great afterwards. We (my sister and I) stopped for pictures and interesting things to see too! It was my first race ever! Crazy, I know! I used the Jeff Galloway beginner training plan from runDisney and it was great -- have her look at that!

Waddlers may be more appropriate.
Oh, I'm sure there will be some waddling going on here, too. :D

I'm using the Galloway program, too. Tried C25k a while back and ended up with really sore knees. Hoping for better results with this one!

I'm going to guess major repairs.....carpet, wallpaper, beds, bathrooms, etc. "Soft goods" would be linens, etc.

Just took a look and I'm at 37 sleeps! OMG! I am going to order my PP+ today.

I called about getting my mailing address changed to my office for all mailings, but something had already gone out! Hope the kids don't see it...

We were at the YC during the 2008 BC refurb. We did have the opportunity to view a newly refurbed BC room during our trip. The areas are definitely cornered off / closed during refurb. Would be little disruption to guests.

Thanks for the thread link and walk down memory lane. Viewed some of my great room view photos first few pages of 2008 thread!

So, it sounds like we can expect the rooms to look nothing like they do now. Hmm. Interesting. It seems awfully soon since the last major rehab, but what do I know?
