    How busy is the Sandcastle Club usually? We plan on using it on 4/24/13 and I haven't had a chance to call and reserve a spot.

    Our kids used the Cub's Den in July and we had reserved a spot ahead of time and it probably wasn't neccessary because they were the only kids there that night!!! :rotfl:

    I will probably call to reserve this weekend if I get a chance but is it neccessary if I forget??? :confused3

    You should reserve ahead of time if you know that you want to use one of the kids clubs on a particular date. This will give the club a chance to staff appropriately. As in any childcare situation, they must maintain certain child to care provider ratios. If they only anticipate a handful of kids, they may not fully staff, and if they get a lot of drop in, they may need to turn kids away (if a spot a spot is not reserved.)

    Shhhhhh, don't talk me into doing laundry at Disney!!!!

    It's so sad but it's a real novelty for me doing laundry in the US because of the top loaders, we only have front loaders here in the UK (though I do remember my nan having a top loader in the 1970's).

    I think I should print out your tip about the fancy drink and leave it around the house for the family to see;). They wait on me hand and foot whilst I wash their skinky undies.

    Glad you enjoyed it, we were there from the UK from 18th October so I bet our paths crossed. We had a room that overlooked the quiet pool which was an excellent location.

    We will be at the BC in 3 weeks. Teena, you've probably answered for someone else, but do expect to work Dec. 2-3, or will you be on your cruise? I know I've missed many pages of this thread-sorry if you've posted this info already!

    I return from my cruise on the 1st (Saturday) so I'll definitely be working on the 2nd (Sunday). As of today, they have me working Saturdays and Sundays but I'm not sure if that is going to be permanent or I'll be going back to Sundays and Mondays.

    Hooray!! I've made it through the entire thread!! I have been quietly reading for weeks, trying to keep up. You guys keep me sane! ;) Among a host of other things this past month, my coworker dropped the bomb 2 weeks ago that she had found a new job. Since she and I are (were) the only 2 people in our department, that just leaves me. :scared1: The first thing I said to my boss after it was announced was, "And by the way, in case you've forgotten, I have a trip to Disney planned the first week of December, and I AM going!!" ;)

    Anyhooo...thank you to everyone who keeps this thread so up to date and informative, and especially Dee for all you do. Happy belated birthday!! :) Many hugs to Ninja Mom. {{hugs}} And to those who are there...yay! To those who will be there soon...I can't wait to join you!! Just 3 weeks and 2 days!!! :cool1:

    My SIL (also my travel agent) informed me that my Mickey Mail will be arriving soon...woohoo!!!

    How do you make even laundry at Disney sound enjoyable?!? :rotfl2:

    Thanks again, everyone!!

    What has Flat Ben been up to? Well, he had One Enchanted Evening at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party


    [​IMG]


    Flat Ben's friends were going as characters from Enchanted (Rapunzel and Mother Gothel) so we thought transforming Flat Ben into Flat Flynn was in order.

    Flat Flynn even met Real Flynn, who was very sorry that Ben did not get to visit Walt Disney World this year.

    :sad1:

    Sadly, we will miss you. Our flight is at 10 am so I am guessing the car town will be picking us up by 8:30 am etc.
