Deep sigh for Bear in the Big Blue House. If he was still at DHS, I'd be there!

As for our ME, I need to call because the ones that came for my sister and her BF have my name and DP's name on it. I'm guessing that will be a problem, so they're probably going to need to reprint and resend those luggage tags.

I was hoping that we could just use one set. I'm marking the boxes and already told everyone not to TOUCH those bands until we get to Disney!

Can't wait for our Dis Meet!
While we are not doing a split stay next month, we too received two sets one for our A/P's and one for our GF stay. Not wanting to drag both sets, we decided to just bring our A/P set. A ticketing CM assured me that it would be "painless" to link our room to our A/P bands...guess we'll find out soon enough

Anyone have enough experience to say if full balcony, high floor and king bed is a reasonable request? Or is that asking too much? And any reviews on the king bed rooms? Any other suggestions on what we should request?

Thanks!

This is just a shameless check on the ticker... should be just under 100 now! 49 days until the Texas move means 99 days until the retirement trip!!

Happy planning to those planning... Happy and safe travels to those leaving soon... and to ALL those going in August it's almost time!!!

Aloha Dee

Teena so glad you are enjoying your time with your girls!!!

Hi, checking in at the BC in just a couple days, I was wondering if anyone knows if soy milk, almond milk or pretty much any non-dairy variety of milk is sold at the BC Marketplace? I'm particularly interested in anything larger than an individual size, so we can have it in the room to drink and use for cereals, coffee, stuff like that.

Thanks!

We had two sets from our split stay in May. While we were there one of my husband's bands just stopped working. We were very happy we had both sets as we just got his other one and didn't have to deal with Guest Services.

My favorite view is from the side that faces Epcot and is closest to the BC. There is also a section that overlooks the quiet pool. I would try to avoid the section of the villas building that is farthest from the BC. It is close to the road that the buses take to travel between the BC and the BWI and it can be a little noisy.The rooms that face Epcot sometimes have a view of the highest Illuminations fireworks.

We are checking in for a 7 night stay on 9/12/14. Just my wife and I this trip, so would love to request a king bed room. I have seen some conflicting info online though, about these rooms having a Murphy bed? We have a garden view reservation. Most important to me is a full balcony and highest floor possible, and we don't care about distance from the lobby.

Anyone have enough experience to say if full balcony, high floor and king bed is a reasonable request? Or is that asking too much? And any reviews on the king bed rooms? Any other suggestions on what we should request?

Sorry, Yacht Club!
None of the rooms at the BC or the YC have Murphy beds. If they have an extra bed it would be a daybed. There are pictures of the rooms on the first page of this thread, so you can see what the daybeds look like. There are a couple different styles. All the YC rooms have a full balcony.

You can request a king bed but I've heard that there are not a lot of rooms with a king bed that aren't handicapped accessible. It doesn't hurt to ask, though.

I don't know much about the YC. We've stayed at the BC and BCV's lots of times, but haven't been at the YC in about 17 years. I've heard that requesting a view of the wedding gazebo will put you close to the lobby and give you a chance of getting a view of Crescent Lake.

Hi!


Can you please change my resort to the yacht club on Nov 9 to 11th. I was able to save 280 bucks on our stay from the beach club for those same dates with the late fall offer room only discount they just released. The past 3 trips I wanted to stay at the beach club but it seems the discounted rates are always at the yacht club so that is were I have been winding up. thank you for changing it for me!

The more requests you have the harder it is to fill. At the Yacht Club almost all the rooms have full balconies so that should not be an issue. List your requests in order of priority. So if you want a king bed most importantly, say that first.

They do not have any non dairy milks. I was there a couple weeks ago and Dee asked me to check. They only had dairy based varieties at the Marketplace. You can order from Garden Grocer.
