    It's nice to know they made an amenity for your family with the milk. Whole oats can be boiled in either water or milk, so that could be an easy modification. :thumbsup2

    A few years ago there was a woman named Brenda in charge of Special Diets whom I contacted a couple of times, and she was an incredible resource. She no longer works there, and since her departure Special Diets has become more streamlined and therefore less informative/helpful, but I do think contacting them would probably be the way to go, or maybe even speaking to the resort manager regarding CL questions.

    We will prob just leave our ressie as is for this trip (non-CL), but I'll post any veggie and allergy options I notice. Having that kind of info in this thread would be fantastic! :goodvibes

    Yay! DD (11) & DS (6) will be on the May 15 Albatross Cruise at 9:30a!! I emailed IPO, they responded with date options and a confirmation number. I called as instructed to give my CC number (the woman initially told me it was a "pay in full at time of booking" but then found out it was actually only a CC hold), confirmation number and the date I wanted... Poof, the kids were booked! I'm going to surprise them with it that morning. I'm so glad they get to go together! (Technically Giuliana will have turned 12 a few days before, but after our arrival).

    The previous post raised a question for me. Does anyone know where they actually prepare the CL food for BC/ YC? I imagine the restaurant kitchens do the hot things in the evenings and the desserts but what about the hard boiled eggs and the big pans of oatmeal? Just curious how this little bit of magic happens behind the scenes.

    Just wanted to pop in and share! Flights are now booked, but had to adjust our dates so we could fly on points:banana:

    Our new dates are April 20-27 at the Beach Club. :cool1:

    Dee, the house of chips was hilarious and the original post was the most confusing thing ever. I couldn't figure it out - I even looked back at the first page because I could have sworn you both described the chips and posted your photo of it. And of course, you did! I was stumped, but would have never guessed that you thought it was a house OF chips.

    I like west&east's suggestion - house of chips in the lobby after the gbread season ends!

    Glad that brought a smile to your face.

    I have seen warnings against posting under the influence. I need my own separate suggestion-

    No posting after 9 PM!

    I swear I was picturing a display in the form of a house made out of potato chips. I'm so glad west&east set me straight right away. I can just imagine the dreams...

    Long time lurker here.... Thank you so much for all of the usefull information I have read over the years. I am usually a strong supporter of staying off site because I like to have my space. Plus my DH snores so if I have to I usually hop into bed with my daughter or go down to the living room on the couch, but with all of this talk of the changing fast pass system I finally bit the bullet and decided to stay on site. I have always wanted to stay at the BC and have just official booked CL for July 20th to July 28th.

    Crossing my fingers that the IPO office will be able to book all of the reservations I requested. I gave them a couple of options for BOG just in case my first option was all booked up.

    Yes! Although most recommend against requesting specific room numbers because it's unlikely that a very specific room will be available for the exact dates of your stay and it doesn't inform the CMs of the reasons you are interested in that room. Really, any room along that hallway would be fantastic! Maybe "close to lobby, second floor" would help. Teena is on her cruise, but maybe someone knows how to describe the view - does that courtyard have a name?

    To all those who sent prayers and good thoughts our way, my niece passed
    away late this afternoon, surrounded by family. As sad as we are it was a blessing. We are so thankful that she was able to get through Christmas.

    Thank you to all my friends who kept her and her daughters in your prayers.

    I would call that the courtyard by the back entrance of the Beach Club.
