    Quick question about this, please!

    I haven't been to WDW in about 15 years so I'm basically brand new to everything that they do now. From what I'm gathering from all of my reading here, I believe you can see your ADRs online and cancel/change them at any time, correct? (Assuming times are available, of course.) I guess this is through your online Disney account, right? Well if you make them with the IPO office are you still able to see them online to cancel or make changes, or do you have to go through the IPO office every time?

    Thanks!

    :welcome: and happy reading!

    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list on Page 1.

    :cool1:

    As far as your request for a full balcony, I would suggest adding the request to your reservation now, then call around 10-14 days before your trip to make sure it is still noted.

    The view from a standard room will be a parking lot or rooftops. I'm not sure it is worth putting in requests in this category concerning view. You could put in a request for a location if you prefer to be closer to the lobby or closer to EPCOT, but if it was me, I would just stick with the balcony request.

    You could also see if there are garden views available for your trip, usually around $10 or so more per night than standard.


    :welcome:

    I'll add you to the list.

    We look forward to hearing from you in the next few months. Let us know if you have any questions.

    :goodvibes


    :welcome:

    I'll add you to the list.

    You picked the perfect resort for EPCOT lovers!

    :yay:

    This thread is one of the best! It lists "every" snack that can be used as a SC....there are some great items that some people don't realize are a SC.

    This is 2013 and still being updated:
    http://www.www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3039087

    This is the 2012 thread to get an idea of the places that are still missing:
    http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=43602721&posted=1#post43602721

    I have taken the best items from this list and made a 8.5 x 5.5 card printed on both sides and laminated that I carry with us in the parks. I organized it much like he did by parks and the resort we are staying at so when we are somewhere and want a snack my family looks at the card and knows the "best" options for the park we are at.

    The one thing I did notice though is that milkshakes were not listed last year at BC but it seems as if it was something that was overlooked based on other posters! :thumbsup2

    THANK YOU FOR THIS!!!

    I went looking for this thread this morning and I was distressed to see the Snack Sticky from 2010-2011 closed. I didn't see that a new one had been started up. This was one of my favorite threads!!!

    Bath and Body works has some new fresh scents out for Spring. (The employees usually say that when one scent is discontinued, another similar is brought out to take its place) in wondering if any of these new scents are close to the Beach Club scent. I've got my last Sunrise Lagoon and Clean Mist candles out, which happen to smell just like that light, fresh, green scent in the lobby. Anyone check out the newest scents to see if they're close?

    One of the winners of last years "One More Disney Day" contest is currently enjoying her prize. Her pre-trip report has now turned into a live report (just a few postings). She stayed at the YC for a couple of days and now is over at the Poly.

    If you want to read about it, here is the link.

    Pixie Dust Overload by lvjen777


    She has one picture of her room view at the YC and one picture from SAB, pages 8 and 9 of the report.

    Not meaning to add to anyone's suffering, but this morning's breakfast in the Regatta Club, which was our last as we are sitting in MCO as I type, featured chocolate puff pastries. I was going to take a picture, but it couldn't stay out of my mouth long enough to posse.

    And, while I am on the boards, the final post of our trip report.

    As mentioned yesterday, we split the day between MK & DHS. We arrived just as the rope drop ceremony was concluding. Probably would have made it had the BC not had two bus loads of people - including an EVC, compared to the 9 of us traveling from the YC. No biggie.

    As we have done the whole trip, we used the new quick scan entry system. It is so much faster and easier than the old keycard machines. For anyone who will be traveling down soon, the new entry machines are on the left side of every park.

    Upon entering the MK, we stopped for a photo with Clarabelle Cow & Horace Horsecollar. As part of the weekly magic experiences, the MK will be having Meet & Greets with some long forgotten friends. The 3 Pigs & the Big Bad Wolf, and the characters from Robin Hood were also there, but the lines were too long for our tastes.

    We then raced to FL to ride & grab FPs for SM. We then made our way back to FL to check on ST w/ Belle & Ariel's ride. Together we rode Ariel (essentially the same as the DL version which we experienced back in 2011), but DS opted out of Belle's cottage, for obvious reasons, leaving it for the girls (DW &DD) to enjoy. As much as I wanted to see the new technology, it actually was a win-win because the boys (DS & myself) got the FPs for SM all to ourselves. From that point, we also rode Buzz, TTA, & TM, and the boys enjoyed the Tikibirds while the girls played Sorcerers.

    We stayed at the MK until 2pm. The park was noticeably less crowded, which was nice but we soon discovered why. FYI: wait times were pretty good all morning. After leaving, we returned to the YC for a mid-day break. We enjoyed chips, gummy fish, & chocolate covered pretzels, before headed to the studios for around 4:30.

    It was a madhouse. RnR & ToT had wait times over an hour, and TSM was at 130 minutes. But, as it was EMHs, we weren't overly concerned as we entered with "managed expectations," which was our buzz word for the kids letting them know that they woudln't be able to do everything they wanted. In spite of the crowds, we still packed in a ton: we experienced the PoC show, which was good but not worth any wait unless you're killing time as we were; ate at the ABC Com; watched the 6:30 showing of Fantastic; drew the Alien from TS in the AS; rode GMR & ST; and capped the evening watching illuminations on the Friendship IV.
    Even though it was EMHs, ToT & RnR wait times were still near an hour at 9pm, so we opted for an earlier return to enjoy one last night of desserts in the Regatta.

    All in all, it was a great trip. It was incredible to see the progress in FL since our visit in August, and we are definitely looking forward to when we return in December.

    If anyone has any questions, let me know. & thanks for reading! :thumbsup2

    So, I'm trying to figure out how to keep track of things I've read on the threads that I have found to be interesting or pertinent to our trip. I've been making mental notes, but I don't think this will be a good method. What do others do in terms of keeping track of the things you want to remember or do or try?!?

    I've just been using pencil and paper and keeping everything in a folder. There are sections for the resorts like room recommendations, resort entertainment etc. another for food, theme park notes (touring plans), and also packing lists. Nothing high tech but it works!
