Tuesday 22 September
Woken around 8am by workers in corridor outside who had made a start on the mattress changes
Breakfast at Concierge (can you see the ritual developing here?) Then off to AK. Bus came straight away but goes via BB and seemed to take forever.
It is worth saying here that the buses that serve the Y & BC resorts always visit the YC first - in each direction. There always seemed to be a lot more guests getting on at BC stop and a lot of them had to stand. This may be useful information for anyone torn between which resort to stay in out of the two.
DD did not come with us today as had some college work to do and she also wanted to go to the pool to catch some rays. (Told her to put plenty of sunscreen on and not get burned like she did in 2007 and guess what she fried!!!)
We ordered the sandwich option of Picnic in The Park for 1.30pm – found a nice shady spot..lovely. Nice bag to keep as souvenir too
Got back around 5pm to get ready for evening ADR at Le Cellier. Obligatory visit to Concierge for beer/wine snack before getting ready (well it would be rude not to after they kindly upgraded us ). Decided we did not want to go to stay at BLT on 30th as we were having such a good time at YC (and also agreed having seen it few nights before that if we do DVC, that BLT is not the one we want so what was the point in wasting $300) We rang Marie from YC concierge and she kindly cancelled it for us.
Arrived slightly early at Le Cellier yet only waited 5 minutes for table...and got exactly same table as last time. We just had to have starters here as I had to have my Cheese Soup..yummy. Waitress was nice and friendly but service was a little rushed e.g entrees arrived at table before appetizer plates cleared. Had my usual filet with the mushroom risotto..yummy. Had a nice bottle of red to wash it all down. $90 bill inc tip
If any of you remember my trippie from 2007 you will recall there was a waiter (not saying his name) at Le Celiier who took a shine to my DH - we saw him again...and he made a point of saying hello
Left just in time to take position in disabled viewing area for Illuminations before strolling back to YC straight away as we still had to pack for HRH tomorrow. Spoke to DVC lady in lobby who said if we went for the tour would get $100 gift card – said we would at some time during stay as was interested.
Went to bed with DD moaning about her sunburn.
Another lovely sunny day with no rain
