Thanks for keeping this thread going - I'm getting so much great info leading up to our first YC visit in Nov!

Sad to see that Peter Pan and the Honey I Shrunk the Kids playground will likely be closed when we visit - I was hoping to let DD run off lots of energy at DHS at that playground!!

We dont really need a daybed as long as there are 2 Queens, its just MH, my son (3) and I.

What fun to see all the Princess Half marathon participants here!

2014 will be my 5th PHM....I didn't do the first one, but have done every one since! It is fun and there are runners/walkers of a range of speeds/abilities.

It is a super fun weekend...be sure to save some money to spend at the expo!

Happy training! I'll be training around the BC/YC area next week!

Weird...
So 2014 packages have come out.
For comparison purposes, I priced out 6 nights at BC (no tickets)...for the 3rd week of August this year...
Then priced out 6 nights at BC (again, no tickets) for the 3rd week of August in 2014......Same days (Sunday-Saturday)...and it came out $29 CHEAPER next year.

Really?

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
Wow - so excited for you, laura!!!! Please promise to report on your progress and your race either here or on another board (and provide link!) I see it's at 87% full now, and still no green light from my husband to register. He has no problem with my trip planning - just a bit Disney resistant at this point - please wish me luck! Any advice, Ninja?

Erika, definitely mention your Poly stay! I'm with Mickey T - there are no traitors! My "other" resorts are BWI and Poly, but BC will always be home.

Except I can't do Jeff Galloway style - must keep running, or I hit a wall!

Ninja, so glad your request was approved - enjoy the sunshine and your summer! And I'll second the flip flop advice - only flip flops for me in the parks during the summer months - Reef Ginger are super comfy and dry very fast!

Sounds like "close to lobby" or "close to lounge" might be a good request for your location, but the good news is that nothing is too far away!

For club level you are on the top floor so really they don't have rooms that are closer to SAB or transportation, the only room that would do that for you would be "close to elevator". Have a great trip!

I've been at various WDW resorts before during "hard" refurb and typically they just do one hallway at a time. Luckily my room has never been directly under or near a refurb going on, but I know they do all hammering and drilling during daytime hours when most people are in the parks. I've also been in resorts undergoing extensive exterior work and they always try to keep the disruption minimal. I always tell people if you think you're going to be really sensitive to these types of issues then just move your resort. But for me these kinds of things don't bother me. I'm always glad to see updates going on.

Hello all! I am new to this thread as I have just booked a last minute, adults only trip for me and my DH!!

I have always thought about staying here but with the kids and my mom, it is easier to stay at CR. DH isn't really a Disney fan...GASP! I know! But I thought with just the two of us doing more adult things, this resort is the perfect choice! This thread and the pic thread really helped clinch the deal!

We will be checking in August 15th!!! SO excited!

We were at the Disneyland hotel for 5 nights in Sept. 2009 during a major renovation. I was a bit concerned about noise, etc. before we got there. We stayed in what was then the dreams tower and half of it was closed off for the renovations. All of the rooms had Juliette balconies and they were removing these and replacing them with windows that do not open, etc. They were completely redoing the bathrooms and replacing carpets and furniture. I was really surprised that we never heard any noise or have any disruptions. The only place that you could hear noise and see the work being done was at the pool because it was right under the area where they were working. I think that they did a really good job of minimizing the noise, etc. to those of us staying there.
