I'm a brand new poster, but have been reading this thread for a few weeks! My family is booked for a stay 11/17-11/25 in a Garden View YC room. My parents are joining us, arriving 11/20 and staying through 11/25, also in a Garden View room at the Yacht Club. We've noted each other's confirmation numbers asking to be located nearby, so hopefully that works even though we are arriving on different dates! Does anyone know if there are connecting rooms at Yacht Club?
YC has connecting rooms. Worth asking when you check in if it's possible to have your parents connect when they arrive. They will try (no guarantee) to accommodate though.

One night my husband and I are going to go to Ohana's and leave the kids in the hotel room with pizza. We have a 5:40pm adr. I figure we would take the bus to the TTC or MK and then take the boat over to the Poly. We will give ourselves and hour to get there. Coming home, depending on the time, we will either Uber or take a bus to HS and then walk to take the friendship boat back to the BC. Am I doing the transportation correctly? Any quicker ways? Thanks so much for any help

The lead singer of Styx will be there for my trip (and the very beginning of yours). Mark and I went to a couple of Styx concerts a gazillion years ago when we were in high school. We were on the planning committee for our Junior prom and the theme was "The Best of Times"

Oh you get Dennis DeYoung. Very nice.

We have Sugar Ray, Los Lobos, and David Cook.

Were you at the villas (BCV)? If so, that's par for the course for DVC these days, I'm afraid. At this point, I almost fall over in shock when someone *does* fulfill a request!

The request would go through same place as a regular resort request. DVC would have nothing to do with it.

I would take a cab or Uber both ways if time is an issue.

If Magic Kingdom is open when you're done, you can take the boat or monorail back there. Then just catch the bus back to BC. Will probably be quicker than walking or boating back from the Studios.

DW and I survived our weekend trip at YC.

Our flight landed around 10:40 on Saturday morning. We boarded the very crowded ME, and stopped at CBR, BW, and BC, before arriving at YC. The drop off was at the YC convention center. I believe we arrived at YC shortly before noon.

Although I had done online check-in, I still checked in with the front desk where I was told we were upgraded from standard view to a garden view with a King bed. However, our room wasn't ready, so we left our carry-on luggage with belhop and went to Epcot for lunch.

Around 3:30pm, I received an email that our room was ready. Around 8pm, we left Epcot, returned to YC, picked up our carry-on luggage, and found our room. Walking out onto the balcony, we could see part of the Dolphin hotel through the trees, and off to left, the quiet pool.

Next morning, we hadn't received our ME packet, so I called the front desk who connected me to ME. The information was incorrect, as it contained my original flight information instead of my current flight information. The phone assistant updated my flight information, but I would need to stop by the front desk to get my ME documents.

We left our room with our bags, and picked up the ME documents. We had the breakfast buffet at Captain's Grille. Afterwards, we went to the ME pickup spot, outside of the convention center. YC was the first pickup, followed by BC, and then CBR.

Although we didn't spend much time at YC, we did like it. All of the CMs were very friendly and helpful. The walk to Epcot is short, and the path to the lighthouse/boat dock is right outside the lobby. Our room wasn't far from the elevator.

Yes. One night only. We purchased APs when we attended F&G back in April because we knew we are attending F&W later this year, and will be able to attend next year's F&G with the same pass.

This was a spur of the moment trip, dependent upon getting a FEA FP at the 30 day mark, which we did get. So we got to experience FEA while getting our Epcot fix. Because this was a weekend trip, neither one of us had to use a vacation day from work.

4 days away we will be at BCV. I can't believe after all my planning etc it's so close now. Leaving 12M on Thursday from south suburbs of Chicago. Driving our first day 14 hours to Valdosta GA. Saturday we only have a 3 hour drive so we will hopefully not be too tired! Stopping first before check in to a Super Walmart to get some stuff .So excited

According to uber estimate, it's about $6-9 each way... In a money vs convenience trade off, I'd go with uber's both times. This is your date night type meal, make it nice and stress free!

Can't get a handle on this news... Refillable Mug change?

In case you missed this thread on the resort boards, reports are that the refill mugs no longer have handles. And something about freestyle Coke machines.

Here's the link and the picture.

Refill Mugs with no Handles

Can someone at the resort now or soon confirm what is available?

:thumbsup2
