Hi, everyone. I have loved reading your thread. Is there a thread for July and August? We are staying at BC for the first time in August and are sooooooo excited.

ETA: There are also life vests available poolside to borrow, free of charge.

beach balls- good question. I don't know! Anyone?

Oh good, I'll pack a few noodles. I also have a really cool thing that makes a noodle into a mesh floating hammock thing. Glad to hear they are no longer charging for tubes! Thanks!

Once this one gets to 250 pages long, which should happen sometime late July-August, there will be a new thread.

Cathy great pics! Last time I ordered a Sunken Treasure my friends told me it looked like antifreeze sure tastes good though
I think for sure I'm going to bring a bottle of vodka or Malibu Rum to add to something! Don't know what drinks they're serving at GF CL, but there must be something worthy of adding vodka to

Good Idea, I think most of the drinks at Hurricane Hannah's need a little kick, most of them are weak, especially the sunken treasure. I wish I would have been thinking like you. Next time.

We will come say hi for sure!! It's totally BECAUSE of this group that we're going to stay at the YC (or BC). Everyone is so nice and so friendly and it just makes the atmosphere that much more special. I can't hardly wait to go and get to stay there too!! For now, it's just fun to see everyone's trip reports and pictures and I can tuck all that info away for when we actually get close enough to start planning.Staying on the Epcot side will be totally new for us, so I think we're all excited for a fun change.


For everyone that stays over in the Epcot resorts, do you usually do the Park Hopper since you're within walking distance to HS and Epcot? We normally do park hoppers, but we were thinking of not doing it this trip.... but I suspect that would be a mistake not to, considering we could just pop over to Epcot anytime we wanted.... It might be worth the money to do it for this one....

Normally if we stay anywhere other than the Y&B, I don't recommend hoppers. However, staying at the Y&B, hoppers are definitely needed. You can pop over to get something in France at the bakery, you can jump over for a great quick service meal at Sunshine Seasons (where Soarin is) ... it's just a good thing to have when you stay at an Epcot resort!!!

You will love it!!!! I always gets hoppers because we LOVE the convenience of walking to Epcot at night for dinner. I feel like being so close to HS and Epcot the hoppers really make a lot of sense for out family. We always head over to one of them at night.
Happy planning! That is one of my favorite parts!!!

I agree with Teena. Hopping into Epcot is one of the best things, especially some evenings taking the monorail from the Magic Kingdom to Epcot and walking through.

Hopping into Epcot for dinner is nice, but hopping over to DHS for cupcakes at Starring Rolls is even better!

You are absolutely right. Those cupcakes are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A guest brought me one about a month ago and I actually went back the next day to buy some for Bob. Those are the best ... it's so hard to figure out which one to buy though!

Park hoppers it is !!! thanks everyone, I totally agree... I'd hate to be right next door and not be able to just hop over anytime... this is such fun to plan!! I am loving all the pictures .....and can't wait to get some Hurricane Hanna's by the pool. Oh, that pool......

for the first time, we're actually going to go back to the resort mid day and swim. We made the mistake of not doing this last trip and we had a hard trip. But I think staying over here is going to be like a vacation within a vacation!
