    Hi,
    So on a FB page I just read that guests staying YCCL could buy up to 3 extra FPs per day, but not BCCL.
    Anyone know why?
    Anyone planning on doing that?
    Does anyone know if there is a "tier" system?
    Wow, a lot of "anyone's"...
    Bueller?

    So looking forward to our first stay at the YC February 10-15! It is going to be so great to walk to Epcot for the Arts Festival. Glad to see all these positive post about the YC! We got a good deal back in Oct. with the Visa discount. I am so excited 29 days to go! Thanks for all of the useful info! Now to decide on our room request.

    Hi All,
    Just back. Just an FYI...

    I sent 2 boxes to the resort from Amazon. Both were held at the convention center. One box was small, and they charged me $10. The other was an Amazon Pantry box (weighing 47 lbs). They charged me $30 for that one.... So $44 for both boxes with tax. I am not complaining, just offering my experience!

    I also ordered from Garden Grocer. That was brought to my room by bell services, and I tipped him $20.

    Also, this summer I sent the same size boxes to GF, and was not charged by the convention center. Perhaps they fell through the cracks?

    @Simba's Girl Thanks for your BC Deluxe room review! We have one of those booked for a week following a 4 night stay at CR Tower Club. We love BC and this will be our first time in a Deluxe room. Can you elaborate on why you requested that specific block of xx57 rooms? Can't wait to see your pics!

    The fees you were charged by the Convention Center Business Office don't match what they have online. Perhaps they raised the fees and didn't update the online listing. If anyone picks up their boxes at the Convention Center, rather than having the boxes brought up to their room, there should be a sign on the desk in the Convention Center business office which has the fees.

    What they show online is:
    Small box, up to 4 pounds: $3
    Medium box, 5 to 20 pounds: $5
    Large box, 21 to 70 pounds: $10

    Argh! I wish I knew this! I thought that was exorbitant! Any money I saved ordering drinks and snacks was absorbed by this fee! I should have questioned it! THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW!!!

    My thought was that even if the price went up, it shouldn't have gone up THAT much. $30 for one box is ridiculous.

    I thought the fee was based on weight the last that I looked..

    My box weighed 47 lbs, maybe that is why?

    Yes, the fee (charged by the Convention Center business office to receive a package) is based on the weight of the package. But the chart they have online says that the fee for a 47 pound box is $10 and @Donna3271 was charged $30.

    Did they say why they are closing it? We are going July, and we're planning on using it once so we can have a night out at World Showcase - hoping our boys get a good experience while they are there - it was looking like it was more exciting (like the Disney Cruise activities) so we were looking forward to it for them.

    They are closing all the Kids Clubs due to lack of demand.

    Conundrum - red blend $27.00

    Parducci - merlot $11.00

    Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi - cabernet sauvignon $7.50
