    Is it possible to just not give her a PIN code?

    I gave my kids charging privileges, figuring it will make things easier for me. It's not like they're ever alone at WDW, so they're not going to sneak off and buy something without my knowledge. But this way, if we're at SAB and they want to get a pina colada shake or something (other than the sodas in the refillable cups)they can do so without me. I don't think it will be an issue.

    I think that should be fairly easy to accomplish, although I don't know if there is an option when you are setting up the MDE accounts/Magic Bands or if that is done when you do online or actual checkin for the resort.

    I would also imagine you could add a certain limited amount to your child's account. We did that in July, on our boys' key cards and I would think you could do something similar with the bands, too.

    Anyone have experience with this?

    :thumbsup2

    Perfect! :) Thanks for answering my question. I always thought that the busses ran between hotels and parks only. Now I know better!

    Glad that you enjoyed your trip and I really enjoyed it too! :goodvibes:goodvibes:goodvibes

    So glad you had a great trip and I think I heard your sobs from Ohio! I had to laugh at your comment about the spa lady... "working out for a half hour and sweating" doesn't seem to be a very official policy! lol

    Look what I found!!!!!! [​IMG] It is delicious! It's only available during afternoon snacks. I wish it was available during evening appetizers and desserts too. I also took a pic of the new adult welcome beverage. Crazy as it sounds, I prefer SAB Breeze. [​IMG] Here are some more lounge photos [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sorry there aren't more. It was always pretty crowded in there.

    Hello everyone, I know I have been largely quiet for awhile on this board. I have been really busy lately but just last night DH and I made some big decisions...

    One of those decisions has to do with our vacation. We have switched our dates because of work issues with our September Labor Day weekend trip and drastically moved up the dates!

    Dee can you remove us from the September list and add us to the July listpixiedust:
    7/4-7/8 BC GV

    We are actually then moving to the Swan for 2 nights, and the reason we are moving is because of the shower/locker room issue at BC. We always have the last flight out and I need a proper shower before getting on an 8:45 pm flight. No proper facilities is a deal breaker for me. So while I am so happy to be going back to BC and my beloved SAB, I am disappointed about having to switch resorts to get a shower:rolleyes2

    I will end on a good note... in 19 days I will be sitting at SAB:cool1:

    That's what I thought too! She begrudging admitted you can shower if you've been exercising but only if you're sweaty! I was tempted to say, "I guess we'll exercise after we swim so we can shower!" Can you imagine the look of horror that would have brought!

    I am picturing her with a stopwatch and a little jar with markings so she can collect the sweat to make sure there is enough to earn a shower.

    catho72 how did your family like going to see the ocean? We are on the fence about taking time to do this, vs using that day to stay at SAB

    I'm curious how you liked it too. We did Cocoa Beach for a day on our last trip and liked it a lot....although we went in November and the water was a bit cool. We did a public beach right past the cruise lines port and they had a restaurant there, showers and a restroom. It was a faster drive than our GPS had it at too!

    Hi everyone! I'm thinking about booking 1 night in July after we do 2 nights (CSR Business class) and 3 at Vero Beach. My dad has some dietary restrictions and I didn't know if the lounge food offered some healthy options. For breakfast he will do cereal and berries (which I know CSR offers) but didn't know if YC CL offered that as well? Any help would be great! We are going to Epcot at night so I thought it would be nice to be close and walking distance. Thanks for any advice!

    For breakfast YC usually offers cereals, fruit, Danish, bagels, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, muffins and some type of bread (like banana bread, etc. Hope that helps!

    Me too!!!!!!

    This is the third time my husband has driven to Cocoa Beach with the kids. I went with them once. They love it! I have them pack a lunch, either sandwiches from the Marketplace or bought at Subway. They always make a point to stop at Ron Jon's. Last year they slapped a Ron Jon sticker on my car as a surprise. I personally don't want to take any time away from my BC to go with so I usually stay back. But my husband loves the ocean and paddle boarding. In fact, they came back with a paddle board from Ron Jon's this year. They said it was cheaper to buy one than rent....oh ok. ;-)

    I don't mind sending the family off while I stay back at BC with whomever doesn't want to go.

    Usually they leave around 10am and get home around 6pm. It's about an hour each way.

    Hope this helps!

    We stayed at Aluani in February what they did there was have cast members go around they took the towels folded them and put on the back of a chair, when they made rounds (about 1 hour) if towel was still roll on the back of the chair they removed them, making the chair available for another guest, and if they had personal items they bagged them and put them in a guest relations booth. This could be one suggestion to stop chair hogs, especially if they were leaving the pool area.

    Thank you for the info on the beach, I am on the fence if we should take a day away from BC to do the beach. How old are your kids? Mine will be 9
    & 7

    BC is one of my favorite resorts! We have been lucky enough to have stayed at both BC & BCV. We love the easy walk to Epcot & boat to the Studios. We also enjoy walking around the boardwalk in the early morning & later in the evening.
    Having said that, I too am interested in possibly going to the beach. I just never seem to want to leave "the world" for an entire day while there though.
