Teena, I'm glad Princess Lily is feeling much more like her Royal Highness should!

Couchy, what you did with your Magic Bands is something I totally would do!

To all those at YC/BC right now, hope you're having a magical time!

I can't wait until I'm back in February for the Princess Half Marathon! I'm trying to figure out when our family will be able to go back in 2014. We have my SIL's wedding in June and we are going on an adults-only trip with 13 of our closest friends to Riviera Maya in July. I'm thinking somewhere in between those two (expensive) events we'll go to WDW. I don't know if BC will be out of our price range or not for this trip. POR might be our resort choice or maybe we'll get two rooms at POP. We were so spoiled at BC for the past two summers....I don't know how we'll be able to stay anywhere else!

Did everyone see the news about Disney instituting a cancellation policy on all TS meals? Interesting! I wonder if this will help with availability at some places? One can hope! I'm sorry if this topic has already been discussed on this thread.

Thank you ... just skyped with the Princess again tonight. She wanted "Nanny in Castle". So Jeanne had to get me on Skype and Lily took the laptop into her Disney castle (which is in the middle of the living room) and I had to watch her color a picture of Jake the Pirate and then she kissed the screen a few times (at which Jeanne yelled that there was slobber all over it). After 30 minutes, Jeanne insisted it was bath time and she cried when we hung up. Jeanne later texted me that she went in the closet and dug out a pair of my Crocs I keep there and took them with her to bed. That made me cry. Hurry up 10/22!! Can't wait to hug that child!

And I'm thrilled with all these new policies at Disney ... I think it will help getting reservations at restaurants and I think the new policies for handicapped guests is fantastic. It will stop the abuse big time but at the same time people that can't stand in line will still be taken care of in a fair manner.

Happy to answer any questions as you all helped me so much!
Thanks for the great review!

May I add a link to your post to the trip report section we have on Page 2?

BUT the good news is we're not going far- we'll be hanging out across the water at Boardwalk! I hope to get to Beach/Yacht Club someday, but sadly not this time around. This is a great thread though and I hope everyone has wonderful stays!
Thanks for letting us know!

Have a fantastic trip!

Got it!

I know that photo pass has had a major overall in last month so maybe new orders don't get voucher? I thought I'd put in confirmation code from prepurchase, but there's no where to put it in? . So confused
Sorry, can't answer your question about the BOG lunch

Did you order the regular photo pass or photo pass plus with the ride photos?

You get the voucher with PP+, but not with the regular PP. For regular PP, you just get a card from the first photographer that takes your picture (make sure you take a picture or note the code number of any cards you use)

I haven't heard about MB being used for photopass, but then again, I haven't had the need to pay much attention to the bands. Has anyone used the bands with the Photopass system, either regular or plus?

One thing I can say is that everyone and everything at the Beach Club was fabulous again this year.
Look forward to hearing about your trip when you have time!

I'm heading down to WDW on Sunday, but I'll be solo at the AKL. I plan to swim there, but my heart will be at SAB.
Your conference was approved! Have a great time!

Thanks for the great advice (and pictures) of the quieter SAB areas - we'll look for a spot near the waterfall. (which, coincidentally, is nice background noise for a kid -or adult - who wants a nap!).

Thanks!

Lily is just so adorable...loved hearing about this!! The Crocs part was the best...would make me cry too Teena!

I read about the new policies and think the changes are great too.

Teena, I can't believe my trip is in 5 days...can't wait!!

This is very sweet! When I read your posts about Lily and Jeanne it just helps me know that moving to Dallas next year will be and is the right decision!! Aside from missing my daughter EVERYDAY... there are no grandchildren yet, but when there are I will be there everyday, and I can't wait for August 2014 and that move!!

Thanks for your posts Teena and hurry up 10/22 so you can hug both those girls!!

As much as I love living in Florida ... it was always my dream to retire here ... I'm thinking that if I found myself alone here, it would make sense to move to Vegas. I hate it there ... dry, hot, so horribly dirty (because it rarely rains) but it would make sense ... I miss those two girls so much. But as long as Bob and I are kickin, I'm sticking here in my beloved Clermont and just endorsing my Disney paycheck over to Southwest Airlines. Gotta love their sales! It makes it possible for me to fly out every other month and to fly them here at Christmas, spring break and the summer.

You're making the right decision going to Dallas!

So sweet...Lily is such a little lovebug! And as for the new policies, I'm another who is not upset over it and completely agrees with you.

Counting down and almost in the single digits...cannot wait

Hi Catho & Teena ! I'm not familiar with the changes, can you fill me in?

Thanks!

Ps- teena so glad to hear Lilly's better, I was praying for her!

Thanks Dee! This the 1st time I've ordered photo pass because I thought it would be great for MNSSHP & of course the rest of the trip too. DH & I don't have many pictures with each other. So since I don't know too much about photo pass, I just ordered it, but now realize I ordered the original photo pass & not the plus, I didn't really even realize there were 2 different options! I did some research last night after I bought it because I was so confused. It's not a big deal not having the plus because we have no character dining this trip & DH will only ride a few of the rides that take pics. I'm only bummed that we don't get the magic shots I guess! The prices for photo pass are nuts & the website confusing. When I initially logged in from my Disney experience it said if I preordered there was a deal, but the link it took me too was for $169.95& I knew that couldn't be the preorder price. There was a spot to enter a coupon code, so I goggled coupon codes & it linked me to Allears, the link at Allears took me to the reg photo pass for $119.95. Since I didn't realize there was a difference I just ordered it to save $50. I now have found the pluses preorder price is $149.95. So I could've gotten the plus for $30 more which i may have done instead of reg photo pass. I just don't understand why both items were not options right next to each other to help you choose & compare, it's like the try to trick you into buying the plus for the non discounted $169 even though the link from disney tells you theres a preorder deal. Sorry for long story, but if helps anyone else....

Anyone else get the error message when trying to sign up for BOG fast pass?

Re-reading this thread and getting excited about our YC stay! 23 days!!! I called last night and requested a pack n play and bed rails for our room, as well as made sure we had a fridge for the kiddos' milk. Anything else I should be aware of/ask for/bring for our room for them? They are 23 months old.

If you want to upgrade to PP+, you could call them and explain the situation and they'll do that for you. I had a PP bought a couple of years ago which I never got to use so I had the credit. I wanted PP+ this trip, since I wanted ride photos, magic shots and we are doing a couple of character meals. I called PP people, and they gave me the credit for PP I bought and I just had to pay the difference to upgrade and it only took about 5~10 minute phone call.

I agree with you 100%, Teena!

And, 10/22 is not so very far away now!!

Our MagicBands for the Beach Club portion of our trip just arrived! Two sets to take care of now. But I put AKL on the ones for the first two nights and BC on the ones for the rest of the trip. That ought to help!!
