We will be staying 7 nights at Boardwalk Villas and then moving to the YC CL for 2 nights. We have ROOM only prices. I am an annual passholder, my DH has an 8 day park hopper.

When I check out of the BWV do I have to check in again at the YC CL before I can go to the parks? I'm thinking no, because my DH park hopper is still in effect and I'm the PH.

We can check in anytime, right? The magic bands should still work? I know I won't be able to use SAB until we check in.

I know that the BWV will move our luggage to the YC but will our luggage be held at the YC until we get there or will it be out in our room?

Saying that the rooms were nice the only thing that was old was the shower nozzle which was covered in rust. Mouse keeping was really good keeping room nice and clean..
restaurants and lobby. That's an interesting addition to room refurbs.

We also had an 8 am breakfast at AK on Sunday, and I learned (from the front desk, bell desk and concierge) there is no longer a bus for early ADRs, and the bus doesn't begin to run until an hour before park opening. The last few years I have been here, at different resort hotels, there has always been a 6:30 bus. We drove to AK, but that's something to verify and keep in mind if you have early ADRs elsewhere.
Thanks so much for this info! The only other pre-opening breakfast I have is at Crystal Palace and I was planning a taxi to the Contemporary anyway so we can sleep in as late as possible!

We have had so many issues with the early ADRs at Tusker House over the years that we no longer make them. Buses never coming. Driving but having the entrance blocked until exactly 8 am so finishing the meal before rope drop is impossible. Taxi is definitely the way to go!

Hope the rest of your trip is wonderful!

Hi - we arrive this Friday (yay!). I already completed on-line check in, but we received an email from Itinerary Planning Services at Beach Club asking us to respond with arrival time, room requests, etc. Do I really need to give them this info again? I thought it was a bit odd. I don't want to ignore if its important. We are staying in a Standard room.

She is so excited about the DCP, her dream (she has been chosen in merchandising) would be to work in the BC gift shop!!

Fingers crossed for DH, he loves staying at BC and visiting with you!!

P.S. Richard says hello, and he has to admit that the Magic Bands were pretty awesome....but he still hasn't made up his mind on the whole FP+ thing!!!
Tell Richard I'm starting to love the FP+ thing!!! I got Anna and Elsa FP+ for Lily for July!!!!!

Not sure which greeter said this. The lobby definitely is getting another rehab but the restaurants aren't on the list that I know of.

Your luggage will be held until you check in and they assign the room. I think only the ME will put your bags in your room without calling for them.

Your MBs should work in the parks.

This is really disappointing. We love doing 8am ADRs at tusker house before the 9am opening. Taking a taxi would be difficult since we are 7 people including a double stroller. When we stayed at BLT in October we had no problem getting to AK for 8am (we caught the bus around 7:30). Is it just YC that stopped busses before 8am? I don't understand how they could offer ADRs and not the bus service to get to them. We will either have to only eat breakfast at cape May or pick a different resort to stay at.

We also like an 8am ADR for crystal palace. Do they not offer busses to MK before 8am either? I thought if we were waiting for busses around 7:20 it wouldn't be a problem. Boo.

I'm not sure about the early ADR busses, but we drove our own car to AK for our early breakfast at Tusker and had no problem getting in early. Also, we took a taxi home from Downtown Disney and there were eight of us and we all fit in one of the large vans that they have. Not sure if that might be an option for you.

Don't we all dream of working at the BC!

That is so exciting that your daughter gets to participate in the college program. It sounds like such a great thing to be a part of!

I just realized the kids would need car seats to ride in a van. We will have three still in 5-pt harnesses, though one might graduate to booster by then, and I wasn't planning on bringing any. I figured with The busses from the airport and to the parks we would be set. If busses really don't start running until 8am then we might have to change plans. If we stayed at CR then we could walk to MK. I am off to see if the transportation board has any ideas.

Buses start rolling at 6:30AM every day for early ADRs.

Yay!!!! Thank you!!! I was scared for a minute there! My three year olds have beaten me to an emotional pulp with their antics the last few days and I don't think I could have taken another disappointment.
