So sorry she isn't feeling well. Sure hope she gets better soon. Glad to hear no one else has fallen ill!

When I gave pixarmom a heads-up about the new thread, she told me she is vacationing in Newport (CA) until school starts and to say hi to everyone. She will be visiting Disneyland and offered to answer any questions people have about that park when she gets back.

The only way to put is where you put people you don't want back lol. They had some room leak problems so had to wait to be moved. Talked to a CM yesterday and he said they try to have rooms ready for folks with bands because they know when you are here. Also used bands at magical express.
Sorry to hear about the issues you had with your first room. Glad to hear you are all settled in now.

1. Refrigerators in regular (non-villa) rooms?
2. RFID (???) mug refills?

Thanks much - ahhhh! Leaving tomorrow!
Questions were answered in another post, but forgot to give you a welcome.



Safe travels today, and enjoy!

THANKS AGAIN!!!



Hope your day at Discovery Cove is fantastic! Can't wait to hear all about it!!!

So I guess I am packing all of my bands, I want to make sure I have the correct ones and I don't want to take the chance that when I do get to the resort that they don't have my bands.

I am going to have lots of keepsakes
All I can think of is the letters that keep coming for Harry Potter in Sorcerer's Stone!!!

Pretty soon you may be receiving more bands through your mail slot and fireplace!

Fantastic!!!

I have never seen pictures of the resort tennis court(s) before!!! I actually asked recently whether they really existed!

I would be extremely grateful if you would post these pictures and a room description in the YC View Thread when you return from your trip!

How about non-perishable Disney-themed snacks? I know they make fruit gummies (name is escaping me know) in various Disney character forms, and with Disney merchandising what it is, I am sure you can find a few things during a walk in the grocery store.

Rosa, I am so sorry to hear that your daughter has been too sick to enjoy your trip! How heartbreaking for your family!

Hope she is well soon

So sorry your DD isn't feeling well. During our many trips to Disney, a few of us have gotten sick enough to require medical care.
CL sent a can to pick us up & take us to the medical Clinic. The wait does take a bit, but if she has persistent nausea, the Dr.'s could give her some anti-nausea meds to at least keep her comfortable.
Hope things start looking up for you & your family!!

She actually got sick the day we arrived (last Sunday) and by Monday morning we were at Celebration hospital with her. She got an IV that day and meds to take with her back to the room. Fortunately the nausea stopped...it's what usually comes after, that isn't going away and she's got meds for that too. I called her pediatrician yesterday just to get his opinion & he said that it unfortunately a virus can take a bit to run it's course and the main thing is for her to stay hydrated - and she is. She will see him on Monday morning when we get back.

On another note: DH & I upgraded our tickets to A/P's since we are coming back this October and we also got the TIW & have used it several times already to cover our OOP meals and drinks this trip...it has already paid for itself. And while I've always been a huge advocate for the DP for my family (we had FD on this trip), we realized that we will be better off with no plan and using the TIW on future trips.

Amen! DP is a scientist (read:nerd) and we did a rolling spreadsheet comparing savings from purchasing the dining plan vs. Tables in Wonderland. Clearly, we had a lot of time on our hands that night, Because we sat and looked at menus for each of the restaurants we had an ADR for and we plotted what we would have and how much it would cost using Tables in Wonderland versus the dining plan. TIW was a no-brained for us.

Also, I believe a standard rule of thumb is that if You are planning to spend 10 or more days at a Disney Park, an annual pass is financially the right choice.

We are heading to the beach club for the 8th September. I have downloaded the my disney experience app to my iPhone but when I put our confirmation number in, it says it doesn't recognise it! We booked through wdw travel company and used the number in the email! Would we be too late to get our magic bands? If we get them I don't want to end up with the grey ones as we haven't been able to log on

I created an Excel spreadsheet last night to calculate our savings if we bought a TiW card to use on our next trip. Using broad estimates for the ADR's we had planned for our six days trip, I figured we would save $84.60 with the TiW card in December. We have another trip scheduled in May and that is when we would start to see the savings on the card.

Although it is highly possible that I underestimated our expenses and will actually break even in December.

There is also the advantage of Disney math, i.e. I already have an AP & enough miles for free tickets so with the AP discount and TIW another trip is practically free! At least this is how my nerd brain works... :rotfl

To the uber nerdy types, buy gift cards at Target with their redcard debit card and prescription bonus...so 10% off, then buy the TiW

Friends if ours just did this

Or, if you are nerdy with too much time on your hands...

Purchase Walmart/Sam's Club gift cards from your kid's school fundraiser (2.5% of purchase price to school) and then use those gift cards to purchase Disney gift cards there (6% discount)

Otherwise the lounge has been great. We are close enough we could bring food back to the room. Off to HS tomorrow!
Oh exciting! Have a great trip!
