Quick question...don't crush the newbie....Staying at a 2BR BWV next month. I see the drip coffee maker in the pics and listed equipment. I assume that this are starter supplies there when we get there but will these supplies be refreshed daily?

TIA
If you are staying on points then you will only have the starter coffee and will need to bring your own coffee and basket filters. If you booked a cash stay then you will get the coffee refreshed daily. We always brought coffee and filters from home, even though we always stayed on a cash reservation. Having good coffee that I bring from home is one of my favorite things about staying in a villa. :)

Fellow DD girl here myself! I had my first job at Dunks when I was 16 :) Although it had the opposite effect on me and I was so sick of smelling like grease from the donuts and old coffee that when I quit I refused to go back to a Dunks for like 5 years afterwards. Ugh, I can still smell my clothes after a long Saturday morning shift. Blech!
Pictures or it didn't happen!

Just kidding ;)

Yes, the uniform smelled really bad, especially since smoking was still allowed at the counter at the time I was working.

But my boyfriend (now DH) worked at a seafood restaurant and his clothes were so much worse. His shoes were NASTY!

:scared:

    Staying on points or paying cash?

    Staying on points - no. No daily housekeeping. Someone is supposed to come in once a day to remove your trash, but they don't do anything else.

    Staying on cash - you are supposed to get daily housekeeping. But if you get back to your room at night and they forgot to bring coffee supplies, how will you react? Will you call Housekeeping and ask them to bring some to your room, and be okay with it? Or will you be mad because you're exhausted, you don't want to wait for them, and you desperately need it in the morning? If the latter, I would bring my own supplies. (I have stayed on cash and had Housekeeping miss my room for a day. I assume they got the points resies and the cash resies confused.)

    Yes staying on cash. We have a meal plan too so I can always run folks mugs over to the marketplace too....

    We stayed at BC Sept 29-Oct 6 in room 2629. It's a garden/woods view overlooking the main exit out the back of the resort, 2 queen beds, daybed, full balcony, connects to room 2631. It was a great room! We've previously stayed at BCV and preferred this location much more. We just had to take the stairs by the elevator, walk through the elevator bank, make a right, and we were the first guest room on the right. SO quick and easy to come and go.

    We didn't have any trouble with the busses. I was fully prepared to take Minnie Vans if we had long waits but we never waited more than 10 minutes for a bus and mostly walked right onto a waiting bus, were able to get seats, etc.

    I'd upload a file but they are apparently too large :confused:

    Do you have an iPhone? I always email the pictures to myself and when it asks what size I pick one smaller then "Actual Size".

    Thank you so much for the detailed description of your room. I'm glad to hear you were happy with it and that you had decent experiences with the bus.

    Here are the instructions for resizing and direct uploading photos to the DIS


    How do I Post a Photo on the DIS? Direct Upload- resizing

    With the new DIS server (Feb 2015) pictures can be directly uploaded to the DIS using the "Upload a File" feature. Two things to note- files that are too large will not upload and must be resized and when you quote a post that has a direct upload, you will not get the photo in your response box, you will just get a message that says "Attach XXXX"


    To resize a single photo:

    *Make a copy of the photo first, so that you don't alter the original photo file*

    Click on/highlight the copy of the photo
    Select "Open with Paint" or other photo editor
    Select the resize option (two superimposed rectangles in Paint)
    In the horizontal or vertical box, change from 100 to either 50 or 25- both work
    Click OK
    Then click "Save" icon that looks like a floppy disk.

    That photo should be ok to directly upload onto the DIS.

    No one in this thread will crush you! I’ve been in and out for a few years now here & can 100% say this is one the kindest threads on the boards :)

    We checked in to Yacht Club on Saturday and are in love. I am sitting on the balcony as I type staring at the lighthouse and listening to sounds from The Boardwalk. I was very disappointed not to be able to get a Halloween mug on Saturday, but was thrilled to find them in stock today. Supposedly it’s the first time Yacht has had them this season per the employees. The sweet cashier traded mine out for me. So excited to have a different mug after many trips to WDW! It will be a sad day on Saturday when we leave this beautiful resort!

    They traded your old one out for the Halloween mug? That's awesome!

    I bought one on Saturday when we arrived and they traded that one out
    That's good to know. I was thinking we just wouldn't buy a mug and hope they show up during our trip, but I'll plan on getting a mug and hoping I can switch it out for a Halloween one. Thanks!

    You’re welcome. Hopefully they still have them. Boardwalk had some last week and sold out really fast. Hopefully they’re all catching up now

    We don't arrive at Pop until 10/23 and BC 10/26 so we still have about 2 weeks.
