We had dinner at Cape May a few days ago. The crabs legs were really good, first time we had ever had them. We all really enjoyed our dinner there.

So to confirm : there are crab legs and there will be crab legs at cape may
I, Buzzy the fly, can personally confirm that I have seen many legless crabs hobbling around the resort. This sight only confirms that crab legs are still on the buffet at Cape May Cafe. It is simply ridiculous what some people will post on the Internet!

Say Buzzy, are those crabs getting around using little mini scooters?

Dee, I just checked my emails for a survey from my June trip. I knew I had gotten one but put off answering it. To my surprise it was only for PhotoPass! Hmmmm. Not for POR, BC or AoA. Bizarre!!!!


I think someone was inadvertently left off the synchronized dance team.....Teena! Catch her after one of her cruises where I'm sure she (and Bob) are dancing on the lido deck all day long! I'm sure she has moves like Jagger!


Thanks to all for the birthday wishes!

I have not gotten a survey about my resort stay in many trips now. I have sent in letters to guest services telling them about my concerns and compliments.

I've been debating on opening up some Synchronized Pool Tube Team spots to the staff. I'm not sure how the International Synchronized Pool Tube Team committee would look upon having professionals on the team. Then there is that whole thing about how you have to be a guest to have access to Storm Along Bay... We'll just have to see how hard up we are with the people that we fooled into signing up for this. If they are drunk and uncoordinated like I fear they might be then, perhaps, we shall lure one of the Staff members close to the edge of the pool and 'accidentally' pull them in.

I heard a rumor from the same place that started that "no more legless crabs at the Cape May Buffet" that to get Teena close to the pool there has to be an out break of Love Bugs, an unattended pool noodle and a soon to be 3 year old that loves that movie Frozen and wants to go for a swim... well that and a basket of Jersey tomatoes.

I decided to get to the bottom of this:



The crabs were going to move over to a position at a Boardwalk Inn restaurant, but decided that things really wouldn't improve for them so they are staying put at Cape May.

DH & I would be staying on points so we would not be getting daily replenishments of the in-room coffee packets.

Thank you for your help!
Another option I choose if we are staying at a place with a coffee maker is the Maxwell House coffee pads- It is a box of 10 pads that make 4 cups each, I think.

Here's an example: walking in from the rain at BC, we found baskets of towels in the entry way for us to use on our wet selves. Lovely. There are real towels in the restrooms off the lobby. I think YC has cold water available with little plastic cups in their lobby. Not sure about BC. These little touches remind me of other really nice hotels like Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC.

By contrast, AKL and WL are all about the theme. The rooms are fine just slightly smaller than BC. BUT, they have bunk beds, which our DDs really like. The lobbies are magnificent. The WL has the boat to MK and the lakefront location. AKL transports you to Africa. An experience in itself. And, the dining at AKL is, IMHO, the best on property besides maybe GF.

I don't know if I've helped you at all. These are my three fave resorts. We've stayed at WL twice, AKL twice and are coming to BC for the second time in late Sept., having originally booked WL. The pool debacle changed our plans for us. I would stay at any of them again in a heartbeat. If you love EPCOT, BC can't be beaten.

No matter which you choose, I think you'd be happy. But, yes, there is a difference. Whether it's worth it or not is a personal choice.
Thank you so much for this analysis- I have a section on page 2 of this thread with resort reviews and resort comparisons. May I add a link to this post in that section?

Oh, and Dee, have a fabulous trip! I can't wait to see your pics and hear all about it!

Thanks so much!

I don't think I have you on the Be Our Guest list, but then again, the August section is so long I may have missed you. Please let me know if you would like to be added.

I have updated the Be Our Guest list. I will be handing this over to MickeyT later today, I think, for the next couple of weeks.

Please let me know if I need to make any corrections to your listing.

Aloha Natebenma! Have a great trip to DL and Hawaii!

We're now less than 45 days out, and so ready to enjoy SAB.

Natebenma,
I'd be honored for you to link to my amateur analysis of BC versus WL and AKL. Didn't want to quote your whole post. Thank you!

Dee ... have a super super super time. We'll miss you but look forward to all the pics and reports when you return!!!!

And since Dee posts the Princess Lily pics, I'll just have to rely on my other Dis friends to pick some from Facebook that Jeanne posts daily to hopefully post here once in a while.

Hi, Dee!
I just wanted to confirm my dates at YC. We will be at ALK from 8/15~8/21 and move to YC 8/21~8/29. I am definitely going to drop by 8/18 morning to see Teena since it is our Epcot day. I so want to drop by to see everyone at dismeet but I also need to drive my mom to airport that night so depending on traffic and all.

I'll try to keep up on the boards as much as possible but Lily will keep us going nonstop and I won't have computer access while at the Cabins and the GF.

Met some new Dis friends this past two days and had a super time with some long time Dis friends. Had another super dinner at Crews Cup with EasternShoreGal and family and spent lots of time talking with Couchy. What a super family we have all become. Sure missed seeing Dansdad. He had here for so long, I was sure I'd see him again Sunday and Monday. But he'll be back soon!

Hurry up Saturday!!!!!!
Have fun!!

Staff-
What can I say this trip? The staff has been excellent. Of course there was Teena, who greeted us with a hug the second day we were here (that made up for the less than stellar lack of a welcome home upon arrival by the guard).we made plans for dinner, which we did last night. It was nice to talk to her in a non-work setting. What a great evening. Then there was Rocky one of the servers at the pool on Tuesday...we only saw her from afar on Saturday. Another hug by a cast member. Is there any wonder this feels like home? Then on her days off Matt took great care of us as well. This was our first interaction with him but once again a great experience. And we had many of our own snacks and beverages with us at the pool so we didn't utilize the servers a lot but when we did they were great, The pool staff in general was terrific. I did get asked any number of times at the pool by staff about my wine and champagne plastic glasses but once they realized they were plastic, I got a friendly smile and an appreciative thank you for being careful. One exception, who will go unnamed told me 7 different times that I wasn't allowed to have glass in the pool area, three times in one day. After the 5th time I actually said yes, you told me that already 5 times. Can you believe I got the same comment again today and the staff member actually had to touch the glass again!!! Really??? Most of the staff remembers them from the many times we have been here before so this was a little crazy. Housekeeping was fine. We never saw them but never had any issues either. Didn't have to contact a manager but did run into Jeff in the villas yesterday. He asked me about our stay and we chatted for a while. Went for dinner and when we came back later there was a surprise waiting for us. Will try to post a picture later if Couchy is around to show me how.

I hope it wasn't a customized, competitive pool tube prototype complete with beverage holders. I'm working on that even as we speak but the wine "plass" holder is proving to be an especially difficult attachment to master. There is just no room for it because of all the other stuff like the high def GPS unit and the stereo system that Scott insisted on for all of the tubes. That and the fact that they have to be clear is really putting a damper on the tube aesthetics. I did however put my foot down when he tried to insist on waterproof, WiFi enabled tablets. I could just tell he was not going to be taking this seriously at practice if he had all those distractions at his disposal...

I'm thinking of calling Google Maps to take the areal shot of BC/YC while the routine is going on. Clearly it has to start with y'all with hands clasped over your heads, all falling sideways into the pool in rapid succession.




Is this me you're talking about? I admit I have to remind myself to "unplug" from time to time. No worries about the speakers anymore. For our Buzby Berkley-inspired number, I've reworked some wiring on the Epcot loop and now, inexplicably, the BWI's lobby and area music is relaxing guitar music, and the BC?YC is blaring big band music from the 20's, 30's and 40's.
