If they can get the MB's, will they be able to make FP's in advance?

I say no but they say yes because they have AP's. I thought that MB's were only being offered to those that stay on property not people with AP's yet.

what do you think?
I agree with you.

I know that my DD is able to make FP's using DME even though they are not staying on property. I think this is because they are AP holders and we all just came back from a trip in September, so we all have MB's already. They have been back to Disney three times since our trip ended and they scheduled FP's each time. They are still using their MB's to enter the parks too. But again they already had MB's so I don't know if you can do this with just an AP yet, but once you stay at Disney you should be able to continue to use the MB's and FP+ system.

I'm packing a bit of everything of course & I know FL weathers unpredictable, I'm just wondering what way to lean more towards packing? The reports of the crazy humidity has me bummed, my May trip was a 2shower/day trip & I was hoping this one wouldn't be. Oh well, I'll be in Disney, right? Thanks for any insight you may have!

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. This 'being on an actual trip' business is interfering with my Dis boards time.

The weather report: The big news flash is that the weather has changed from humid, humid, humid to cool (At night, days are still sunny and warm) and breezy (slight). (THANK GODDESS!!!!) The temps are dropping into the low 60's at night with a slight breeze, so pack what you need for that.

We have been fine swimming when it is sunny as the sun warms you up enough to enjoy the pool. The hot tub here at CBR is also enjoyable if we should need the warmer waters....... so take advantage of the hot tubs at the BC/YC/BCV to sooth those tired bones.

Now we bring you the hour by hour Drunk Report at Food and Whine. This report is sponsored by Dewey Cheetum and Howe, attorneys specializing in DWI cases...

During the day the drunks are almost invisible and are easily confused with cranky people with small whiney children. At dinner time you see a lot of people who are in "mid drunk". You can tell they have been drinking and they are still ordering alcohol because NOW they are having dinner and they still think they can handle MORE, like eating food would make it better.. LOL

After dinner you see the people who have been drinking and touring ALL DAY leaving the parks after their livers tell them doing both to extremes is a BAD idea.

Late night is my FAVORITE time for "Drunk Watch" as this is the time you will see them. After Illuminations you witness a VERY SMALL NUMBER of roving packs of drunks screaming loudly about finding places to "do more shots". You can hear these people coming long before you see them so there are no worries about them causing you problems unless you are a bottle of vodka, then the will be ALL OVER YOU like a pack of vampires. I did witness a band of roving drunks (BORD) storm into Rose and Crown for shots only to be told by the Bartender to keep on moving so OUT they went!

All in all, the drunks are not much of a problem and that was on a Friday night, so I'm thinking it's peak drunk season. There are an awful lot of "Chattier than normal" people who are curious about your trip and where you are from and what you have been doing. We think this is delightful but if you are the shy, non communicative type then you might want to invest in one of those 'Brazillion' tour group T-shirts and chant 'no English' when some friendly souls tries to chat with you.

I have seen an increased uniformed security presence at food and whine, much more so than what you would see on a regular park night so that should allay some fears.

Now for a commercial message brought to you from Joffrey's coffee. Our coffee tastes burned and Starbucky, which rhymes with yucky! (Nuff said....) You are going to want your DUNKIN!

I gotta run... the quiet pool is calling my name.

Thanks for that very helpful update on Food and Whine Ninja Mom! I can't wait to get a drink!!

I've been tracking the weather on http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/dis...cast/69031_poi and it is telling me that 10/30-11/2 will be in the mid 80's and a tad humid.. I can't wait! and 11/3-11/4 look to be low 80's. This is perfect let's hope it stays that way for arrival day!! I did pack 1 pair of jeans and a hoody, but I am finding it hard to pack that pair of sneakers.... they made it into the suitcase, but I don't think I'll be wearing them

Enjoy the quiet pool NM!

This is almost EXACTLY what I just said to my DH! We have had two mornings with very heavy frosts and I had to scrape my windshields!!!

You arrive at AKL on Wednesday, we go to the airport park 'n' fly hotel. But we will see you in the CL on Thursday evening! Have a great trip, Nannette.

Ooh exciting. We'll be YC CL end of August. If I were a gambler, I'd consider switching over to BC CL. I'd love to try refurbed rooms. Saw some where (here probably ) the lounge is being made bigger which they totally needed. That was half the reason we were going to try YC.

Another great day at WDW! We spent the entire day at AK. Started with breakfast at Tusker House - awesome as always. Then two of our faves - Festival of the Lion King and Kilimanjaro Safaris, plus a new one - Expedition Everest. Ended the day with the kids totally loving the Boneyard (another first). I have to say - this our 9th trip to the World, and only the first time we've spent a whole day at AK - wish we'd done it earlier. What a great park!

Finished the day with a F&W date with DH, kids at Sand Castle Club, and we all had a great time. Tomorrow finds us at 'Ohana for an early ADR with the kids' absolute fave - Stitch - followed by an MK day with a FP+ lunch at BOG, and then dinner at Flying Fish. Should be another great day in the World!!

We loved Tusker House and the grandkids had a great time in the Boneyard. It was a great way for them to unwind - kid style.

Let me know how the lunchtime fp+ worked out. We have Nov 30th booked.

Thanks for the trip updates. It has been great to hear how your trip is going.

Teena- thank you so much for the advice, helpful hints and just saying hi! I know you are headed to California. Enjoy your trip! It was wonderful to meet you!

Beach Club was amazing! Loved our room! Loved SAB! Had a blast at the parks. Enjoyed the restaurants. And enjoyed our family. We were fortunate enough to get a rezzi at BeOur Guest (thanks for the link) and our lunch was a lot of fun in the West Wing! Would love to be able to stay again soon.

Thanks again everyone! I plan on stopping by again when life clams down a bit and my laundry pile return to normal!
So glad you had a great trip!

I'll revise your dates.

Yesterday was a big day, but lots of fun. Epcot in the am, back to BC to change into costume the off to MNSSHP. Much more crowded than last year's party, but great. Even got to meet Jack and Sally before we left - almost at park close! Needless to say, I'm the only one up.

Off to HS today, then a restful afternoon and evening at BC. Loving it!!!

So on with the show!

We made it to the BC by 9pm Wed after taking 3 hours from touch down to check in, 3 hours!! DME had to stop at OKW, SSR, CBR, BW then at last BC.

Check in was fine with a lovely lady called Meredith. We got our birthday and celebrating badges and our magic bands were there waiting for us! She said our room had a full balcony and a day bed. Yay.
Got to the room, it was lovely but it stank, it smelt damp and i knew we couldn't spend the next 15 nights in here. So I did what I've never done before and went and asked for another room!!
Meredith was great again and went over the few rooms see had and said i would probably like 3522, near epcot with full balcony.
Yes it was lovely, no day bed but we had a crib delivered but DD2 was too long for it so we've got a roll away. It does hinder the opening of the balcony door but we can live with that.

All in all we are loving the BC.
SAB is great, DD10 is enjoying the pool parties and got to watch a movie on the beach last night.
The weather was cold Thursday but lovely yesterday.

The parks are alot busier then they were last time we came, soarin was out of FP by 930am and at a 70min wait by that time. Same with Toy Story. Glad we pre booked our FP's.

Magic bands working ok. First charging use didn't work as a credit limit had not been set and yesterday at DHS mine didn't work getting in the park but a CM just scanned it and asked were i had been the day before and I was let in.

Will update again soon. Must try a Sunken Treasure today.

x
Thanks for the update.

YIKES!!! 3 hours!!! Definitely not typical and NOT COOL!

But glad you are having a decent time- hope the rest of your trip is truly magical!

Well she called and when she hung up she said sorry but since you are different room categories we can't get you right next to each other we had both booked standard. So the wheels started turning and I was completely over the moon when we got to our room and were greeted with a towel animal and a gorgeous view of the .....LAGOON!!!!!! After a fabulous afternoon by the pool and an awesome burger at beaches and cream we headed to epcot for test track and soarin fast passes. Great day, awesome resort - we are in love!!!!
Have a blast!

Glad you are loving the Beach Club.

Thanks for the weather and drunk report. Hope both of the situations start clearing up in the next few days.

I'm with you on the DD! I'm not only a fan, I am a former employee- worked at a Dunkin for 5-6 years a gazillion years ago.

I don't have you on the Be Our Guest list so I will add you for the end of August.

I don't think you necessarily have to be a gambler. As the spring goes on and summer arrives, we should have postings about how the work at the BC is going and whether the CL should be finished by your trip. Then you can see if you are able to switch.

Teena, Jeanne, Lily and their friend Jim are in California. They are staying in Huntington Beach, but I think it was too cool to enjoy the beach on Friday. They spent the day yesterday at Disneyland!

Here are a couple of highlight photos:





Beauty and the Duck




Beauty and the Truck




Lightning Strikes




A Pair of Pretty Princesses




They spotted Adam Sandler and his family at the park, but they didn't want to bother them so no photos.
