Ok well I will talk to DD tomorrow and find out if she wants to do something else and try and book that. I guess I'll give IPO a call tomorrow once I find out what DD wants to do! Last November (2011) her and I were supposed to do Sea Aqua and the Dolphin swim... that got canceled too!! Oh well I guess that's the way it goes!!

Still wishing you a very happy anniversary!! April is a BIG month for anniversaries here... DH and my anniversary is also in April as will DD and her soon to be husbands parents and grandparents are April!! BIG month!!!

Dee- Thanks for adding me to the Be Our Guest list. You have so much information on this thread.

Just saw the previous post about daybeds. Do I need to request a daybed or are groups of 5 automatically given rooms with a daybed?

Are any of your travelers under age 3? If that is the case, then you would be considered a group of 4 for sleeping arrangements, so in that case you should request a daybed.

If you are a true group of 5, you will have priority for a room with a daybed. You have to be given a room that will sleep 5 people. In most cases, this means a room with a daybed, but if all of the rooms with daybeds (no idea how many there are) happen to be occupied, then you would be given a room with a rollaway cot.

Thanks. There will be 3 adults (DH, my mom, and I) and my 2 kids who will be 7 and 9. I will cross my fingers that we get a daybed and don't have to deal with a rollaway.

At least my YC reservations are still good!
Boo!

I hope you are able to replace these plans with something special.

I guess I'll break this news to DD and see what else she wants to do... So sad, but what ya gonna do!

Hope you have a great anniversary trip anyway... at least you will still be at YC and Disney!!!

Sorry also to you and to DD and DSIL2B. I'm sure you will find something fun to replace it for them.

Sadly, no. In fact, they don't even offer it on the HH anymore. But we are doing our best to keep it around.

If you need a laminated recipe card, I can hook you up with THAT!

I was checking out the BOG list. There is a lot of ppl traveling the last week in August. For the life of me I can't remember what site has the crowd levels.

I thought the end of August / beginning if September the crowd level were lower because if school being in session. Am I wrong?

Our schools don't start until after Labor Day (beginning of Sep).

Similarly in NYS it's in the teacher contracts that they don't start until after Labor Day.

Two things-

As others have mentioned, a lot of schools in the north start right before or after Labor Day, so people from those areas travel at that time

There was also an awesome late August travel agency exclusive for the Beach Club for the last week in August and a bunch of people booked the BC through that offer.

I still think the crowd levels (except for Labor Day weekend) tend to be lower because the southern states have resumed school by mid-August.
