Hey guys! I was just wondering, what would you recommend bringing that Disney doesn't have listed? Anything really random that you wish you would have had?? Also, should I bring my own dishes and cooking/eating utensils...or are theirs ok?

I second a pad for the bed. Those mattresses are HARD! Also, I would recommend a:
lamp
cold weather clothing (it can, and does, get cold in the winter)
a reliable alarm clock (mine didn't go off a couple of times last time, and I was late for work)
If you are driving, I would suggest a little fold-up table for a laptop
A mini fridge (again, if driving)

Hey! I second the router! I dont think our apartment would have made it without that. Id bring a fan, just because in my situation two of my roomies were freezebabies and we all had to decide on a mutual air condition temp so I just ran a fan. Also, a desk lamp wouldn't be bad for the nightstand. I used those clear plastic drawers (from walmart, dollar general, target) in the closet for extra storage. A frying pan, theres isnt exactly a frying pan and honestly isnt good. lol. I brought a new shower curtain. Bath rugs too, the floor is cold!!! It made it more homey and I knew it was brand new. lol (Im a neat freak) A waste basket for your room. Extra tennis shoes-- mine were gross down there from rainstorms and such. I don't remember if this is on the list, but an umbrella and an iron. I hope that helps... I cant think of anything else....

Did they? Where did they say that? I'm not questioning you, just wondering where that was because I didn't see that.

For the chairs, the apartments at Vista don't have balconies, and not all the apartments at Chatham have them (both of mine didn't).

For those that do have balconies, what do you see out of them? anything good like one of the parks?

Oh question: What disney park is closest to each of the apartments? Always wondered.:animwink:

are there any desks for computers, or do you just have to rely on putting up a lap top on the table when you want to use it?

No unfortunately. At Chatham they only overlook Chatham. And I don't really know how close they are to the parks. If I had to take a guess, I would say maybe Epcot from Chatham?

Nope, unfortunately. You either have to use the dining table, or one of the nightstands in the bedrooms. Chatham also has a sort-of table in the walkway where one computer could be set up I guess. I would recommend getting a folding table or a cheap put-together desk from Walmart.

Thanks.:) I am going to say that this has to be new. That was never on the list before.
 
the rooms come equipped with refrigerators right???

How many of you just bought stuff when you got down there?

I've got a ton of stuff leftover from my college apartment but since i am driving from NJ I think it might just be easier to buy stuff at the local Target...

anythoughts on this?
