7 days away from making our "100 Day Countdown Paper Chain"!!! woo hoo!
They sell protective wine bags that you can put your wine in. IF the bottle should break in your luggage, it will contain the spill so that your luggage remains dry.

Just google "protective wine bags" or something similar and you will see a lot of options. I have gotten one for around $6 and some are reusable.

Have fun with your paper chain countdown.

Forgot to add, I believe there is a limit of 2 bottles per luggage. Not sure if this is the airline's rules or TSA. I just remember seeing it last year on a website.

I have had so much fun planning our July trip

at the BC that DH & I are doing a trip for our anniversary in September too! Can you add us to the September list? After much debate (we were considering AKL) we decided to try the YC September 22-26 since we know we will like being in the Epcot area. Can't wait to do F & W and we are splurging on the Wild Africa Trek.

You are right that the posted prices (rack rate) for YC and BC are the same. But YC will often receive a better discount than BC. The most current room only discount is a good example of this. The BC has a 20% room only discount 8/16/14 to 10/3/14 while the YC has a 30% discount. That is a pretty good savings.

We often do wine on the balcony when staying at YC. While I agree bringing your own works -- I just wanted to mention for those who may not know, or if bringing your own is a hassle, there are some adequate bottles at the YC gift shop at an okay price (really), more choices at Boardwalk gift shop. Same goes for Italy and France in Epcot. (I think at Germany too, but I don't like German wine, so not as familiar.) Some of the Epcot choices are not ridiculously overpriced.

Yet another reason YC/BC rocks: proximity to Epcot as a wine store.

During F&W, the festival center has wine and spirits, some of which are not overpriced.

That's how I got that one. Still couldn't get it for Friday or Saturday.

Hi! I just booked the YC garden view - for three nights in August. We have stayed at the BC twice and love it there. What can we look forward to at the YC? Any room requests/recommendations? Thanks!

We fly bottles of beer and wine frequently! Wrap in a plastic bag (ie Target bag), wrap in a towel or tees, place in center of luggage surrounded on top and bottom with other clothing. Haven't had one break yet (knocking on wood).

Hi everyone! Sorry I have not checked in for a few days but we have been crazy busy! We are going to the 24 hour event tomorrow. During the day I am wearing my evil queen shirt and then at night I am eating my cinderella dress. I am very excited for this!! I'll try to check in a few times tomorrow if I can.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Just a FYI, though I'm not sure of my info:

Isn't there a Disney policy against adults wearing costumes in the parks? Not trying to rain on your parade, just don't want you to face an unhappy surprise at the gates.

Have fun!

page 13-14

Loving all of the packing tips for adult beverages! I'm going to repost the responses and add a link to the "Packing Tips" section on Page 1.

Mickey & Minnie Mom- thanks for giving your information and input about scooters. I have a section in the "Other Useful Info Post" about going to Disney with travelers who have limited mobility- would you mind if I added links to your post for people who want more information/reviews?

I'll add you onto the list for September.

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list we keep on Page 1.



Is location important to you? (Near lobby/transportation/Stormalong Bay)
Upper or lower floor?

View- Garden view rooms look over something green- a courtyard or woods. Anyone know if any of the YC GV rooms look out onto woods, or are those only BC? A lot of people like the view of the wedding gazebo. Another option is a view of the back entrance (lakeside) entrance to the YC. Really great people-watching with that view.

Alice, you are correct, normally adults are prohibited from wearing costumes in the parks. One exception is during MNSSHP. Perhaps the 24-hours-of Disney day event also has an exception to that rule. Not sure.

Yesterday I was marking the 1-month till vacation marker!

We are doing a split stay, first at Art of Animation family suites for 3 nights, then over to the Beach Club for 4 nights.

Dee ~ we will be driving and transporting our own luggage, but I can certainly either ask about luggage transport for split stays or do a test transport.

I've never seen anything written about it but you are correct, I've heard about this policy. To keep the integrity of the characters, except for Halloween party nights, adults are not allowed to wear Disney costumes. I know two women in their early 20's had on Minnie Mouse dresses ... the same kind that Lily wears ... and they told me they were asked to leave Magic Kingdom or change their clothes. Again, I've never seen this in writing anywhere but I've heard about it numerous times.
