So here's a question, which I suppose I could probably find on a map, but you all can tell me quicker...

Is there an ice machine conveniently available at BCV?

If anyone is staying at the studios soon, how about a picture of the inside of the fridge?

Thx!


Bummer, I was hoping to freeze water to keep us cool in May/June when we are there. It sounds like there isn't much of a freezer. The fridge door is closed, so it's hard to tell.
If you brought some reusable water bottles, you could always get some ice and some gallons of water for the fridge and fill bottles before going to the parks.

Pending the above reply

I think you'll be able to get a few 16 or 20 oz. water bottles in there. If I was to guess, it's probably 14 - 16 inches in length, the same in depth and maybe 4 inches top to bottom.

Hello, does anyone know for sure which floors the yacht club turret suites are located on? (Not sure if there is more than one) i've tried to research it, but the answers vary from anywhere on the first floor to the fourth! Thanks

    They are located on the first, second, and third floors.

    Hi there,
    We ate at Captain's Grill on Tuesday. Our waitress told us it was closing on May 24 and would then be relocated to Aerials at the Beach Club. She also said it was going to be completely renovated, expanded, and that the kitchen was going to have a wood burning pizza oven also. She said the theming would be completely different. It would not reopen until later in the fall.
    Now, you can certainly take that for what it's worth, I am sure they will be conflicting information elsewhere!

    Have several pictures of the new Fittings and Fairings shop that was relocated to the lobby. For some reason I'm having trouble posting everything!
    Great thanks for the info. Makes it easier to know which side of the hotel to park at

    Yes, it's saying File too Large.... is there a quick fix for that?
    Well, yes there is, and I have been promising for years to write it up, but it has been so long since I have done it that I can't remember all the steps when resizing a large batch of photos. It had to do with copying the photo, choosing the options to "send to mail recipients" and then a box would pop up allowing you to select a size. After you emailed the photos to yourself, you had a group of resized pictures.

    To resize a single photo:

    *I like to make a copy of the photo first, so that I have an untouched original*

    Click on/highlight the photo
    Select "Open with Paint"
    Select the resize option
    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.

    Yes the BCV Studios ( not really an "efficiency") refrigerators have little to no freezer space. It seems like as they are replacing the small fridges the new ones do not have a freezer compartment.

    Is there an ice machine conveniently available at BCV?
    Yes there are ice vending machines available in the Villas

    Just got back from an amazing stay at the YC! We were upgraded to a water view room and got a renovated one too! The new rooms are so nice, especially the bath areas. I love the barn door that closes off the vanity and bath area from the rest of the room so you can get some more privacy. I'm on the fence about the new floors, I like the look and they seem more sanitary, but boy are they loud. We could hear everything from the room next to us, from regular conversations to people walking around. Throw in some boisterous kids and it can get pretty loud, as it did one night of our trip. Fortunately it was only one night, so we didn't loose too much sleep!

    We did have a bath in our room as well, although we would have preferred just a shower. Oh, and the pocket door to the bathroom is so much better than the old setup. It was such a pain to try to close those doors before!

    I'll post pictures once I figure out where my camera is packed and wake up from a much needed nap!

    Happy Mothers Day to all the DisMoms from a DisDad!

    I know we don't always say it enough but thank you for putting up with our craziness and being our better halves. You are appreciated. That goes double for all those Moms that aren't Disney crazy and can't figure out why their usually quiet and insular husbands start crying as soon as they step foot on Main Street or see the globe float out into World Showcase Lagoon.

    Thanks for the update about Captain's Grill. We will be there from May 19th to 24th and we were hoping to eat there. We like the breakfast buffet. :)

    natebenma, yes, the breakfast buffet was still there at Captain's Grille.

    This might be old news, but I don't remember seeing it before. I noticed a new entrance to SAB right near the hot tub. Has this been here for a while? Are the other entrances closed and this is the only one? I was only visiting the Y&B for the morning and it was too early for it to be manned by a CM, so I don't know how it is being used, if at all:

    Wanted to post some pictures of our room for the past few days along with the great view!

    Love the new decor. The headboards are padded so super comfy to lean against.



    Our room had the bath tub, the sliding doors were nice as was the pocket door to get into the bathroom (you can see it in this picture on the left)


    Then there was the view...wow! This is looking straight out of our room. We could see the fireworks at night!


    Even prettier in the morning!

    One more thing!

    A few weeks ago I asked you all if you had any experience with upgrading tickets purchased through the "magical deal". I wanted to upgrade a Park Hopper to an AP, and I received mixed reviews about whether I could or couldn't. I promised to report back....
    I went to Guest Services at the International Gateway the day of our arrival, and asked the CM about upgrading it. All I did was scan the magic band, he saw the ticket, upgraded it with no questions or problems at all, I paid the difference, he linked it to the MDE account for us, and that was it, it took about two minutes....so easy! So, the answer is, YES it can be done, and quite easily as a mater of fact! :goodvibes

    Anyone staying there right now who might take a picture of the Yacht Club's new counter service menu and offerings? I am so curious as to what they will serve. After all, I will be there in early August and must plan all of my meals out..:joker:
