    Enjoy! I'm really looking forward to another frequent Poly guest comparison! Good luck on your marathon! I've got hopefully my last doctors appt today. I injured my knee this past summer (thank god after WDW trip) and I'm hopefully getting the okay to start working out again so I can get in shape for our June trip.

    Good luck again!

    We had to suck it up and go non club after going club the previous year 2 yrs ago (if that makes sense-travel agent messed up booking which is why I will only do it myself now but that's another story). Anyway what I was going to say was -we still had an amazing time and while we did miss some of the luxeries provided by club (swedish fish among them:lmao:) we still had a great time and you will too:thumbsup2 When the kids graduate tell them they have to take you to disney as a thank-you for all the sacrifices you made for their education:rotfl2:

    THIS!!!!

    This is the (not so) secret BCV hang spot! See how nice it is!! When it was time to hit the road again at WDW we would go over to fetch DH and he would roll his eyes at us and want to stay there. :lmao:

    With 5 people in a hotel room my husband is very good at finding hiding spots like this in the hotels that we stay at. His all time favorite was the Wilderness lodge with it's plethora of 'hidey holes". When booking this last BC stay he was bummed that we weren't going back to the WL because he missed his hidey holes there. After he found this one at the Villas he was good to go!

    Thanks MickeyT! :worship:

    Not necessarily. We keep pricing summer trips and we will be down "If the price is right!" Hoping for a summer discount or a PIN.

    Please pardon me if this is a silly question (or has been answered). I did a Google search that did not turn up an answer...
    My DH hates the busses, and so our YC stay necessitates the MK and AK busses. We plan on taking the monorail from MK to Epcot and walking "home" from there, but what about on the nights when the MK has evening EMH and Epcot is closed when we head home. (We realize that this takes longer than the bus trips usually do, but he doesn't care about the time...)

    Is there another path we can take to YC when Epcot is closed? Or perhaps the monorail won't even be running after those evening EMH (I may have just answered my own question...);)

    My family is staying at BC for the first time in May-June. Anyone have suggestions for a room request location? Is the pool view noisy? Maybe not a factor since it closes at 10:00 and we tend to stay out late.

    thanks!

    You are correct BurleyGirl. They stopped running the monorail during EMH's in 2011. This may a good case for a taxi. You can walk to Contemporary and catch one from there??? Just a suggestion if buses are a deal killer. And there is no other paths to Y&BC from the Epcot main gate. You do have walk through.

    If you do stay close to SAB (main pool) it can get noisy. Even more so during the day as they have activities. We are a Garden View family.

    Having grown up in Florida and also lived in Massachusetts for 3 years, I can tell you that Florida-cold is way different than Northern-cold. The humidity stays year-round in Florida, and when the temperatures drop, the moist, cold air cuts right to your bones. Bone-chilling-cold...At least that is what we tell ourselves when people laugh at us for wearing winter coats in 50 degree weather. hehe. ;):);)

    So bundle up, and stay comfy!

    Someone on another thread told me to click on the option to make a map. In doing so it takes you to the old website. You can look at your reservation and then make a payment there online! This was a week ago when I did it !

    They allow you to request it (we have) but from what I understand it is very rarely granted (they didn't let us). Don't think they have a $$$$ late checkout. Anyone?

    We're hoping for the same discount or pin too! Could make the difference between gv and cl! It would be fantastic to have "real Dee" at the BC/YC meet! Looks like a go for July 6. Teena will still be able to make it if we have it then before she heads out to the Princess Lily birthday command performance.

    Not that I am aware of, though you can certainly ask to speak with one of the managers if you feel you have a case for being granted a late checkout. In my past visits, I have packed my luggage and left it at Bell Services or checked it with the Magical Express desk (depending on if I flew in or if we drove). Then we went to a park or wherever we wanted until it was time to depart. Luggage was ready when we were.:cheer2:
