    Now this is news I can use! Thanks.:thumbsup2

    This is a pet peeve of mine- I find that extremely disgusting. Not that you are blaming them, but maybe it's not housekeeping's fault...even my kids know to completely unfold a napkin and cover up the tray, then give housekeeping a call. Not too long ago I stayed at a hotel where the restaurant actually requested to be called when we were through so they could clear the table- and they did. That was awesome.

    Thank you so much for the photos, so nice of you to post all that!! Now I can let them know exactly what I want so I don't get the "laundry room view". :goodvibes
    (And what does that little sign there by the door say?).

    Now that we have a SV CL room at YC, I am wondering about an ideal location...close to lobby and pool?? Suggestions on wording, or will that suffice?

    Wow - do you think we were upgraded without knowing it? I'm certainly no expert regarding YC view categories - I just booked YC GV and we received the room in the photos. So I should qualify the "YC GV" on the photos if that's actually one of the lagoon/pool views. (But in any case, we love that room - yay!)

    The little sign by the door says, "Room Key Access 11pm - 7am!"

    This was my 'garden' view last year @ the YC, taken from the balcony. I suspect I may have been upgraded, but no one said anything. In any event I was thrilled! I did online check in and made no requests.
    If I looked down I could see the wedding gazebo, btw.

    We had the same view and were told at check in we were given a "nice" water view. We had also booked and paid for GV, but on my receipt it said water/lagoon view :)

    Based on what has been said by Teena and others, I've got to think that was a GV given the large tree blocking the view. It seems that you can get a GV and still see water in the distance, off to the side, or through the trees. Don't tell DISNEY!!! They may start a fourth catagory and charge us more! Of course there are those trees that have those certain male stars lurking in them. But I think those are a separate room catagory all unto themselves.

    Teena is back home from her cruise. She and Bob had a great time! I will post the pictures she sent to me sometime today. Teena just texted me to let me know that when she got home, her internet connection was down. :badpc:

    Hopefully she will back online soon!

    Here's the wierd thing - YC GV can include views of the quiet pool, BC GV does not. Now that may have changed lately but for years it was the strangest thing pool view (quiet pool) YC but not BC quiet pool views counted as GV!

    We are only 14 days out now! So of course I have questions swimming around in my head. I'm hoping some of you have done bibbidi bobbidi boutique and can answer this question...do we need to bring a comb? I have it written in my notes with a "?" so I don't know if I will need to bring one with me for daughter's appointment..does anyone know? :offtopic: sorry it's off topic but this is the most knowledge group of people around:worship:

    We are home from BC. :sad: We flew home on Thursday night and I spent most of yesterday trying to recover. :upsidedow

    I am in the process of downloading pics to photobucket, so I can send Dee some more Flat Ben pics, and post a couple on here.

    We had a really good time and we love BC just as much as before! I'll post more later today or tomorrow.

    We did BBB two years ago and I think that I did take a comb with me, but I can't remember if the fairy godmother in training used mine or not.
