You can see most of them. I've got some shots of a lot of the "lower" ones and they they're above the BW. I've edited them but haven't hosted them so once I get home I can post a shot or two for you. I will say that if you can watch the show in HS you definitely should, its well worth it to be right underneath of them with the music blaring.
thanks. I would love to see some "low" ones. Since HS is doing the fireworks only 4 times a week now, we can only possibly make three of the shows and one of those is our non park day. Going to try and make two - one from outside the park and another inside. DS is fireworks and star wars obsessed.

So I'm going to try an experiment here. I shot these using my remote shutter through the Nikon app. When I do that it also saves the images (as jpegs) to my phone and then my phone automatically uploads to Google Photos. I messed around at the airport on the way home and created a nice little animation with it using the jpegs so I'm going to try and post that. I did edit the RAW files so these aren't my "edits", and some of the shots didn't turn out great, but the animation was pretty cool and should give you a good idea of what to expect. Lets see if I can pull this off.

    We were upgraded to lagoon view with our magical reservation last October. I didn't know until we set foot in the room, although I was told we were placed in a king room at check in. The only downside was...we checked in at 10 am and our room wasn't ready until 5 pm.

    I booked that deal again this October and now I am worried that I am so spoiled that a standard would be disappointing, LOL.
    Thanks for the response! It seems like most people (of those who received upgrades) didn't find out until they were actually going into their rooms! That's a wonderful upgrade!

    Okay, another question...

    What kind of laundry machines do they have at BC/YC? Are they regular or he? I want to bring my own laundry soap and need to know which one to pack...

    That's not the real reason that you have been so busy! I have it on good authority that the Mankini shopping for Mr. NateBenMa is not going so well! Apparently the Mr. is not fond of the Red White and Blue color scheme of the Olympic Stormalong Bay Synchronized Pool Tube Team uniforms and he is holding out for the lime green color he saw in the Mankini catalog.

    Please tell your domestic diva that we here on the Official, Olympic, Stormalong Bay Synchronized Pool Tube Team take our fashion responsibility very seriously and it's going to be red, white and blue or he is off the team (unless he is buying the drinks)! If he wants to rock the lime green mankini he can do that on his own time. Perhaps you can appease him with the knowledge that the wearing of the mankini is just not limited to poolside. Common household chores like dish washing and cleaning the gutters can be accomplished while he rocks his favorite lime green mankini. You may even be able to get him to help out with undesirable chores like grocery shopping by promising if he goes to the store he can wear his favorite outfit!

    Keep in mind, as you are in the midst of this fashion tussle, that you may be dealing with a husband who is a trend setter. All it takes is one brave soul to start wearing a Mankini everywhere and before you know it all the other Mankini lovers will start to appear. Just think! One day we might even have "Mankini Mondays" at the office! BTW, Mankinis are totally appropriate for the office because everybody knows that they are all business in the front and party in the back! Casual Fridays are starting to look really passe, right?

    Dee, I don't envy you as you try to get through this clothing crisis with your husband. It may help to tell him that the Olympic committee has decided to go with clear tubes for the competition. With those clear pool tubes, the red, white and blue Mankini will really show off his assets a lot better so at least there is that!

    I hope that you will stand your ground and convince Mr. NateBenMa that being a part of the Olympic Stormalong Bay Synchronized Pool Tube Team is totally worth any fashion sacrifice he may have to make.. Failing that, ply him with Sunken Treasures until he finally agrees and while he's toasted get him to agree to booking a 2017 Disney trip. I think they call that killing two stones with 1 bird, or something like that, which is pretty much what wearing that Mankini is going to do.

    This is awesome.

    Yesss....arriving from UK on october 3rd for our 1st visit to the Yacht club for 14 nights with free dining plan. Had originally booked to stay at WL (booked last May before construction plans were revealed) and after much conversation(!) with Virgin Holidays, they agreed to move us to the Yacht club. Very excited, as we have always wanted to stay at one of the Epcot resorts.
    I will be a regular visitor to this great thread between now and October.

    Going to stay at Yacht Club in August for one night before taking the rest of our trip to the Sheraton Vistana Resort. We are getting "free" timeshare from the in-laws, so I couldn't pass up that price. It's me, DH, DD (17), DS (14), DS (13). It's our second time at Disney, first time on property stay. We haven't been in 10 YEARS!! We have a simple plan in place for now, just getting started with dates set and everything. What do you think? We really want to do MK, EPCOT, and UNIVERSAL. I'm planning my days by green lights on Undercover Tourist. My DD claims she dislikes theme parks now, so we have a reluctant teenager on our hands, and it's going to be hot in August, so I tried to work in some flexible days for other activities. I'm not sure if DHS or AK would be a hit.

    Flying in, get rental car, make a stop on the way to Yacht Club

    Stormalong Bay for the afternoon
    ADR 5:30 Cape May Café Buffet
    Disney Springs evening stroll
    9:00 Watch Illuminations from the beach/lighthouse area
    ADR 9:40 Beaches & Cream Soda Shop

    ADR 7:30 Cape May Character Breakfast
    ADR 1:15 Coral Reef
    EPCOT 'til we drop
    Do we need a dinner ADR, or just get out of there and eat offsite?


    Resort Day and/or more Universal (right now it's buy 2 get one day free)

    Cocoa Beach, Kennedy Space Center

    ADR 7:40 Chef Mickey's (may not keep this as we already did Cape May and teenagers don't like getting up early; will it make us late for rope drop?)
    ADR 11:10 Be Our Guest
    ADR 6:10 Liberty Tree Tavern

    Bass Fishing Or Gatorland, other Orlando activities
    + resort time

    We have a unique offer code basic package at YC and decided to come in one night early (staying at CBR). We have received our two sets of MBs, yellow luggage stickers and the package booklet for our stay at YC, but we have not received the cute souvenir luggage tags. Do those arrive separately from all these other items or do you think perhaps they messed up and forgot? I'm wondering if things got confused since our inbound flight will be at a room only reservation before we move over to our package reservation. Any thoughts?
