She is beyond excited!!! We were actually at Disney World for Mardi Gras this year when she called us to say she was accepted!!!

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.
There should, theoretically, be buses for the early character meals at the parks though the PP who is there now said they were discontinued. It seems difficult to imagine they would do such a thing. I prefer a taxi because, as I said, I haven't had good transportation experiences. But I am sure many people do not have my bad luck, you will probably be fine. The good thing is that, especially, the CMs at Tusker house know there are AK transportation issues and will seat you if you arrive late as will most other character breakfasts (only CRT have been sticklers about this, and I am sure it varies among CMs). Have a great trip!

Teena, will you be in the lobby either Sunday June 1 or Monday June 2? I would like to bring you something from Kentucky, I was thinking bourbon balls or maybe a derby pie :-) Last time we were there you were off so I am hoping to get to meet you this time

Congrats!!! It's kind of like Willie Wonka's Golden Ticket, huh??? Were you also able to get the Mine Train?

Just curious how difficult that one has been to get!!!

Unless something crazy happens with my COPD, I will be scheduled to work on both those days. Then on June 14th, I'm off on the Disney Fantasy again for a week! I can't wait to see you and the family!!!!!!

I'm so excited. Just got done getting ALL the Fast Passes for when Jeanne and Lily are here and got exactly what I wanted for every day I wanted. Also got all the dining we wanted with the princesses and characters. Now if I could only figure out a way to cool it off a bit while they are here.

Sorry, this is kinda but related to my upcoming BC stay so I thought I would ask...

On the old thread someone mentioned that if you place your GG order more than 60 days out you get a discount. I looked on the site and didn't see anything about it. Does anyone have any additional information or OP if you are still out there can you provide some more information.
Thanks!

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.
Hmm, we have to be at AK by 8:30 am for a Girl Scout program. When is the earliest bus now?

Hi All,

What a great thread! I am excited to be returning to the YC after a 5 year absence. I feel terrible that my 15 yr old daughter has not been to Disney in 5 years, though I snuck in a trip there by adding days to a business trip couple years back.
We will be at YC from 7/26/14-8/3/14 with my DD and mother/grandmother. My mom has not done Disney with us in over 10 years and I am wondering about how to manage, as she cant walk far and long. She has never used a scooter or other devices, but I know she can't do the parks walking alot anymore with some issues. If we do rent a scooter while in the parks, does this mean it stays with us the whole time? I've never paid any attention to them, whether it's like a mini car, with a key and you park it, or does it come back to the hotel room? It seems Disney rentals are very expensive and I have seen others more reasonable, but we are not sure if a scooter is more of a hassle. She can walk up and down stairs, get on a bus, but it's the long time at parks that's the problem. So is this worth it to use, then she would have to use the scooter on the bus back to hotel, etc?
Any advice is appreciated, thank you!
Diana

When you rent a scooter from WDW you rent it in the park and only use it in that park. You return it before you leave the park, it doesn't leave the park with you. So this may be a good option for you if your mom is fine with walking to the buses, around the hotel etc. and she just needs it for the long walks around the parks.

If you are going to a second park that day, you hold onto your receipt from your rental at the first park and you don't have to pay for the second scooter at the next park. In other words, it's a daily rental fee but the scooters stay in the parks.

If you needed it for more than just in the parks, you can rent your own scooter from a private company (not Disney) and that would stay with you all the time (onto the bus, at the hotel, etc).
