I was just looking on my Facebook and one page was asking if you are allowed to pool hop. I know you aren't allowed but the replies were appalling! One lady said she was staying at Pop and hopped over to SAB, showed her card and they let her in. Others were saying that if they pay for on site they should be able to hop!

We booked YC so we could enjoy the pool again...it's sad that people won't pay but feel entitled to use the amenities!

Ok, done venting

I totally agree with you and I really hope people not staying YC BC can't get into SAB! I hope I don't sound rude but there is a reason why we are paying the big $$$$ to stay at those resorts! What would the point of staying deluxe be if value/moderate could use the amenities that we pay for?

That would really make me upset if people not staying at BC /YC get into the pool.

Wait, I thought you had to use your magic band to get in

I'm guessing the lady was talking pre-MB when you showed the key to the world cards for access. Even so, the amount of people who replied to the question saying it was ok to pool hop and those reasoning why it was ok to pool hop can lead to a huge problem if they lax on their pool security measures! Lol!

I may try to sneak a princess meet and greet fast pass in there to see if they are paying attention.

So they went for It's a Small World and Dumbo?

Old Bricker. I've seen some of his work and he is the SECOND best Disney photographer I know.

Sigh.... they want to ride the same things...Mountains, mountains, mountains!! I can't get them to even consider trying the mine train!

At least they aren't the least bit interested in Elsa and Anna so I don't have to pull my hair out trying to get that...

You should see my FP+ planning paper! It's filled with cross outs and reschedules as I realize that I DON'T want to go on the same rides as the kids.

Our "adults only" idea makes the whole FP thing a lot easier.

I'm debating staying up another hour, but I'm fading fast so it will be another 20 hours or so before I get my hands on this fast pass selection.

I would have saved myself a heckuva lot of trouble if I'd just booked the bounceback last year for the Beach Club in the first place, lol.

We started at AofA (Nemo suite), went to WL, debated CSR, and called to make the final change today only to find out BC GV was, amazingly, available. Once I found that out, it was embarrassingly easy for me to convince myself the extra money was well worth it. So what if we gave up a couple of extra park days and a trip to the water parks? Still worth it, IMO, giving up those extras, because the changes we did make are going to pretty much force us to slow down and to enjoy some more resort time because now we have a down day (before we go to MNSSHP, but still...). I'm not sure how we'll fare without our park hoppers, though.

Anyway, I'm so glad to be coming back, even if I crawled out from under the rock I've been hiding under and just (re)discovered the news about the renovations at BC.

Eh, the time we spend at the resort will likely be spent outside at SAB, so the way I figure it, the renovations won't bug us (*fingers crossed).

Looks like last year's trip pretty much cemented the BC as my favorite resort, making it extremely difficult for me to book anywhere else. I just...couldn't...with CSR. It looks beautiful, but it's so spread out, and I didn't relish the prospect of riding the bus everywhere.

That said, I have a few questions that you knowledgeable ladies and gentlemen might be able to help me with.

1). Our party size decreased. Not much of a problem, except my Ohana reservation is for 4, not 3. I'm sure you all know how rare finding a ressie for Ohana is less than 100 days out. Next to impossible.

Have any of you had any experience with showing up to a reservation with less people in your party than originally booked? As this is one of our must-do's, we want to hang on to it any way we can.

2). Anybody have any recent experience with Cape May for dinner?

It's hard to look over the convenience factor, and once upon a time, we had a good meal here. It didn't rank at the top, but it was close. Last visit, the negative reviews (and DDP fatigue) directly affected our last minute decision to cancel.

Is this worth booking now?

3). Thinking we're too chicken to take the plunge and do Boma for dinner on our Animal Kingdom day. Are there really enough selections for picky eaters?

2 out of the 3 of us have had breakfast there and loved it, but AK opens at 9, and the only reservation available for us is at 8:05. I don't how late that would make us for park opening. Touring AK in the AM really worked for us last year, and we were able to ride pretty much every ride we wanted (including EE repeatedly).

4). Are Friday MNSSHP's really that much more crowded than others? The one we did last year was on Tuesday, I believe, and we didn't find it bad at all. Then again, we were most interested in the parade and fireworks show. After that, we hit all the rides and candy trails.

We have 3 options for the party (the Tuesday we arrive--staying RO at POP, Friday, and the Sunday night before we leave). Last year we bought our tickets months ahead of time, but we were thinking of maybe waiting and seeing how the weather is this time? Good idea or not? We're going to be there 9/23-9/29 if that helps.

5). Does 50's Primetime allow any substitutions? It looks like a fun option for our HS day, but I'm not digging some of sides that come with the entrees (yuck to the collard greens). Also, I'm not sure I want to be the one picked on, lol, but it sure would be fun if my traveling companions were the ones.

I look forward to reading your opinions on these issues/questions.

Thanks.

it's perfectly fine if the party size decreases so don't try to change it now. Just show up and let them know when you check in at the restaurant. One time we found ourselves riding the early bus with a single lady that thought the mk was opening an hour earlier than it was scheduled for. We had 3 in our party, and knowing that they would have to seat us at a table for 4 anyway, we asked if we could add her to our party when we checked into the crystal palace for breakfast before park opening. It was not a problem! Even though you are showing up with less people in your party it will not be a problem.

somewhere on the web is a site that lists the most crowded mnsshp dates. I'd consult that for crowd level info. I'm thinking it might be that easy wdw site but i'm not sure. The crowd levels depend on the dates. For instance i remember the first few dates sell out but not always the friday ones so it's best to try to find that site and see what the trends are.

Thanks, Ninja Mom.

Do you know if they only charge the no show fee when the entire party fails to show up? Or, if they actually charge it in our case, when 3 out of 4 show? $10 versus no Ohana ressie is a no-brainer to us.
