Bringing your own water

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-02-05 18:04
I have read about the alcohol policy but I was just wondering if there is a policy about bringing a few bottles of water on board the ship with us. I know it's offered at the beverage stations but that's not always convenient sometimes a drink during the night is handy.

VWL may be getting own check-in

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-02-05 15:13
I forgot to mention that during our stay last month we noticed a desk in the Boulder Ridge (VWL) lobby. The next morning there was a CM with an iPad there. He mentioned that they are trying it out to see what members think of the idea before it becomes permanent. They would be available for check-in/out, reservations, etc.

Does Yacht Club still have a Concierge Level Check-In Desk?

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-02-05 14:54
We're going in September and I'm fairly certain that I read that the Yacht Club was scrapping its Concierge Level check-in desk.

Is this true?

We've stayed at the Yacht Club a few times but this is the first time that we've opted for Concierge Level. If it still has a CL check-in desk then where is it in relation to the main check-in desks?

Thanks in advance :mickey:

"Calories don't count at Disney"

intercot.com - Sat, 2017-02-04 20:31
I saw this info on the local community college's Facebook site and thought it was interesting.......

"Calories Don’t Count at Disney!
A Middlesex County College student club, “Middlesex, Math and the Mouse,” recently visited the Disney attractions in Florida for research purposes. They have been investigating ways to use statistics to predict wait times for rides, and in the fall semester, heard from Len Testa, who has written books on the subject. The club was created to provide students a nonthreatening, practical application of material taught in Statistics courses at MCC by allowing students to analyze and gather real data at Walt Disney World. Club members learned there's no reason to count calories when you're on vacation there. The data suggest that adult women can eat over 3,700 calories per day and lose weight, if they are over 150 lbs. and spend six hours actively touring the parks. Another research project involved predicting the wait times of lines and creating a plan to avoid waiting in the longest ones. The club members were able to complete a challenge of four parks in one day, which requires visits to all four parks and completion of at least two-thirds of the major attractions in each park in less than 12 hours. The club is in the process of creating a searchable database that will allow students and faculty to access all of the data gathered from the trip. The group enjoyed the visit and fundraising for another one has already started"

Starring Rolls closing its doors tomorrow

intercot.com - Fri, 2017-02-03 20:23
Sad day if true. I'd heard rumors but just read an online article from DisneyDining (private site) that Starring Rolls is closing its doors.

Always thought, hands down, both a hidden gem and the best counter service at DHS. Not too many places in any of the four parks that are comparable. Wonder why the closing? Since its attached to HBD, I wouldn't think there is a lot they can do with the location. Expand the HBD maybe? Or some other kind of food service?
