If anyone could hook a Chicago gal up with some cheap Aquatics, I'd appreciate it! Thanks!
Our home goods are separate from the TJ maxx as well. I will try and get back to that one soon and see if they are still there. If so I will mail you some. :-)

Our requests were all 3 rooms somewhat close together but my room & my mom connecting or adjoining. My sister didn't mind being further away. We were granted connecting but with my sister my mom was giving a room around a corner and down a hall. (Back story my sister and I shared the same dad different mom's but she is very lose to my mom) so it makes more sense why we wanted this arrangement. They couldn't do anything to fix our rooms. My mom is a little bummed but I understand they are booked. I feel bad she a little far away, but we are making it work.

Our room 5212 2 queens no daybed view of the front of the building , honestly not bad-we saw fireworks from MK tonight from our balcony. My sister is 5214 same 2 queens no daybed. My mom is in 5195 king bed no daybed. Nice view corner view of SAB & if you look down u see roof top. Oversized balcony is a plus!

After we checked our rooms out we headed to MK. The bands are great! Love fast pass+ we did buzz, mikes laughing, small world, haunted Mn, flying horses, With no wait at all! Haunted Man broke while we were on it, it was so funny my mom was freaking out. We were stuck for about 10 mins. We had fast pass for the parade & wishes. Honestly I will never view either without them again. No pushing shoving, plenty of room. It was great!

Today!!! Back to MK for the day. We did pirates league for the little ones as the big boys did Richard perry driving experience. They said it was awesome! My nephew loved it. My niece is celebrating her 10 bday & her 1st visit she feels like a queen. BOG they came out with a candle in the grey stuff with a card from beast /bell. She feels like she is beyond special. It rained late afternoon so we came back had apps in the lounge. They were awesome! The kids went night swimming at SAB (my daughter 7 things that is the best thing ever) then off to bed.

I have to say I love it here. Love the area. Our rooms are clean, house keeping has been fine. We had turn down last night but not tonight most likely because we were in and out of our room tonight. Tomorrow off to AK
Sounds like a great day! Glad you are having a great vacation.

This vacation can not come soon enough!!
Us too. We arrive October 23, can't wait.
The only glitch I have at the moment is that the FP+ is only working for my DD10!
I imagine if I only select her then she is the only one with FP's!?
Have you been able to make any FP reservations?
I was also able to make a band for my DD2 which I was surprised at as she has no park ticket or charging privileges.

Great question- I don't actually know the answer but I'll post this over on the Beach & Yacht Club FAQ to see if some of the BCV experts over there can give us an answer. Click on the link in my signature to get there.

Are you staying in a studio or one of the 1 BR or 2 BR villas?

Experts- do all room categories at BCV have DVD players?

Thanks

I know someone was asking about the blue H2O products before. When you come out of ToT at HS they have a stand in the shop with all the products.

Pamkat we had preferred viewing for the electrical parade and then wishes too last night, it was amazing

Where was the preferred viewing location for Wishes? That is one of the few FP+'s I'd want to get.

I was at Ulta the other night, and they had H2O Aquatics line products there. I saw the lotion and shower gel for sure.

What a great day yesterday. Went to HS for EMH. Drove the car and parked in the diamond preferred lot. So close and happy we drove. Did RnR, TOT, star tours, TSM, Pirates, Star tours again and left around 10 am. Great and not to bad heat wise. Had lunch out side disney the Went to SAB and left for ice cream at Beaches and Cream right as a storm started. So we beat the rush. Had the kitchen sink. All I can say is OMG. Decided around 6 to go to MK. Bus was great waited about 10 min. Bus was dedicated to BC and YC only. It was slightly raining so I think it keep many people out of MK on a Saturday night. We did people moved, SM, pirates. Saw the 9pm electrical parade from frontier land and it was the best seats I ever had. All performers and characters made eye contact with my kids it was great! Saw wishes by sleepy hollow. After wishes we decided not to get in the rush so we went on Aladdin. Saw on the DME app that splash was working again. It had been down most of the evening. We went over there and saw that BTMRR was also
Just opening again so we rode that first and finished up with splash. What a night! Walked on all rides after 10. We to bus during the 11 pm electrical parade there was no line and we got there just as a empty bus was leaving. Waited about 10 min got on bus and were back at BC @ 11:46.
