We checked-in to the Beach Club. We were warmly greeted by those at the resort and welcomed us back home (this being our 2nd time to stay at the Beach Club). They asked us what brought us to Disney World, which I replied “an addiction”. The greeter said that was a good addiction to have. I agree.
So when checking in I nervously asked the person checking us in (a new guy who said this was his 3rd month on the job) “are there any upgrades available today?” I learned that question here on this message board. The guy looked at me, looked back at another worker who apparently handles room assignment. He steps back to her and the both of them fumble through a map of the rooms. He steps back and says they are checking. I must have looked pleasantly surprised, because I expected a negative response. But just that they were willing to check, was worth something to me. The young woman with the map steps forward and shows me the room map and points out 3 options for me. A garden view, a poolside view and a lake view. Now I can’t say which is the best choice, but a water view sounded like the best choice to me, which is what I chose. And good news “that room is ready too!” It was 9:30 am and the room was ready, that was a first for me. So we go quickly up to the room and we were not disappointed with the view. We can see the water, the BWI and TT behind the BWI. VERY COOL.
We didnt have time to unload our luggage, we just had enough time to get to the AK for our ADR at Yak & Yeti. We loved it there. It was really good food. We made it to our ADR in plenty of time which is always nice. I hate being late. I highly recommend the Yak and Yeti. The kids loved it too.
We didnt waste anytime to go get on the EE ride. It was about a 30min wait in line. Not bad considering it is a beautiful day on Sunday. Then we took in a couple of rides (5 min wait) on the Dinosour ride using the parent pass option. Love that parent pass. The kids especially love it since they get to ride each ride twice. Although sometimes deciding which two kids that get to go both times can be hard, but usually they dont fight about it, much. PW was walled off, probably for maintenance. We decided to go back to the room an hour earlier than our schedule to unpack and rest. Jordan (the baby of the family) fell asleep like a rock on the bus ride back. She was ready for some rest. I thought it would be a good opportunity to write out some of our trip report. Our itinerary Disney World Vacation Intinerary - September 14 - 20, 2008
We got all unpacked and we are ready to head to MK for EEMH. I will report back.
