We also have a CM discount and the CM is a member of the other family.
I did online check in for my trip in Nov because I thought I had to get to the magic bands and FP+.

I did not get the floor I had requested by calling in (online request accidentally and couldn't figure out how to remove it 2nd floor, but wanted 3rd floor which was requested by calling in).

That being said, my room at POFQ was super close to the bus & food court and on the 2nd floor. Not a deal breaker and I was still happy with the location of my room, but I think from now on, I will not do online check in and add my requests by calling in.

This does work. You need to click on the section of the hotel and then on the next screen the little box that looks like it could be a room and that you want to see the view from and a little window pops up with that view. Now, that being said...I'm not sure that they are 100% accurate. But, I have been using it to "see" what the view would be like from this room and that room. Also, the room number is displayed it the top left corner of the screen. Try it again

Which room are you looking to see the view from?

Yesssssss!!! I would definitely love to participate in that!!!

We have done CL the past two stays but are trying to "wean" ourselves off of that little luxury on our August trip since we have a DCL cruise booked for April 2015 and will do Disney stays before and after the cruise, but have to definitely do value or moderate because of the cruise cost. Need to keep things reasonable,

We are skiiers so I'd be happy if it snows right up until we have to leave for Disney in June I know, I'm in the minority here lol

Does anyone have a good website that lists all of the rides at each park? I know that seems like an easy request but I've been on a few sites tonight and they are very inconsistent (ride names have changed, rides are closed, etc)
Thanks!

We have used the RAC (Resort Airline Checkin) 3 times at the Beach Club and we love it. After you hand over your luggage, you won't see your bags again until you pick them up at the airport. They print your boarding passes so you can head right to security when you get to MCO.

Does anyone have pictures?

Oh, wait, I do!!!



For the Beach Club, the desk is outside of the lobby. Go right instead of left like you would for the bus stops. They weigh and tag your bags. If you have carryons, you can check them in with valet/bell services right there.

Probably the biggest thing you should know is the hours. They used to close by noon or 1 pm, so you have to use the service before then. Not sure what the current hours are.

You must have your bags to them 3 hours before your flight or they will not take them.

In the past, there were some airlines that did not participate, not sure which ones aren't part of this program currently.

The RAC program is independently contracted, not Disney employees.

Anyone have any comments about the service with international travel?







After checking through our bags, we gave our carryon to bell services to hold while we played at HS.
