    :woohoo:

    :welcome: back!

    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list and keep my fingers, toes and eyes crossed that more days open up for you at YC.

    :goodvibes


    There is a tribute to the Sunken Treasure on Page 2 of this thread, in the Community post. I'll come back and edit in the recipe.

    :)

    Please note that the Sunken Treasure is no longer on the menu at Hurricane Hanna's, however if you get a bartender who knows how to make the drink, you may still be in luck!


    Thanks to medicgirl177, who experiemented at great personal risk to decipher the secret formula:

    Sunken Treasure- recipe by medicgirl177
    1 1/2 shots Midori
    1 shot Malibu Coconut Rum
    1 shot orange juice
    1 shot pineapple juice
    Sprite or 7-Up to fizzy taste
    1 shot Blue CuraƧao
    Over ice
    Dress with Pineapple slice, cherry, or umbrella

    Of course! We always need a home.

    :thumbsup2


    Here are some of my answers to your questions-

    I hesitate to definitively state when buses and boats start operating, but I think an hour before that park opens is a good rule of thumb.

    The trip to MK takes between 12-15 minutes and about 15 minutes to AK (plus whatever wait time you have for the bus). The travel time to DTD is approx. 25-30 minutes. Consider getting a taxi back to the resort from DTD. I'm a total cheapo, but paying for the cab fare for that route of travel is worth every penny!

    How little are the legs that are joining you on the trip? We have done the walk back to the resort from HS. We beat the boat when we are briskly walking. We haven't done the walk TO HS because we don't want to wear ourselves out early in the day. Whether or not you want to do the walk should probably depend on weather and how tired you are. About a 20-25 minute walk between YC and HS.

    Not sure about the Beaches & Cream wait or crowd conditions at the pool.

    :thumbsup2


    Not that I have ever seen.

    :)


    Here's a question- where did you get the cocktail? Did you BYOB or get something from Hurricane Hanna's or elsewhere before going to the quiet pool?

    :)

    What a nice offer! I hope someone was able to take you up on it.

    :goodvibes


    :(

    So sorry to hear that! Please let us know when you book your birthday trip! We'll be waiting.

    :)



    :welcome: to the thread.

    I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list if you let us know when your trip is.

    :woohoo:

    Not positive about the answer to your question, but I think you have to physically go to CBR.

    :)


    Yes, all BC GV CL rooms currently have full balconies. I don't expect that to change with the upcoming refurb, but who knows!

    :)


    Have a fantastic time!!!

    :goodvibes


    I don't think it matters to much if you do the advanced checkin or not when staying CL. Can anyone think of major advantages? Maybe a slightly quicker checkin since you have already provided your credit card info.

    We have had 3 BC CL stays, never did the online checkin and our room was ready every time (approx. 11:30 am).

    I had white wine with ice in my refillable mug! :rotfl: Classy. :thumbsup2

    Uh oh, was that bad? I'm always breaking rules I don't know about! :rotfl: I won't do it again if it's not allowed.

    I would imagine you can carry a drink over there though. I bought a fruity mixed drink at Hurricane Hanna's and drank it over on the rocking chairs at Yacht Club, away from the pool. :)

    No worries! It's all good. I don't think there is a rule against bringing your own (as long as the container is not glass), but I was just wondering if there was nearby option for getting a drink. Either Hurricane Hanna's or something at Boardwalk.

    :goodvibes

    I'm pretty sure there are a couple of youtube links in the first post on Page 2 of this thread. I'll add the other couple that were provided to the page as well.

    :)

    Hurricane Hanna question. Can you not get a pail and shovel with the kids meal? If so, does it cost any less? Thanks so much! Can wait until July!

    Subscribing to the new thread with a question...

    If we have a pre-park opening breakfast at DHS, should we anticipate having to walk? Anyone know?
