Why do I always second guess my resort choice??

I do this every time. We get so excited about one hotel that we want to stay at..... this year AOA but now all I do is wonder did I make the right choice.

I now get a great deal for Yacht Club thru *** and ponder if I should book it but my husband says it looks too stuffy. I think it looks amazing.

I will probably want to change my mind 10 more times before we actually leave in August. Does anybody else do this or is this my Disney OCD kicking in???

Do yacht club if you got a great deal. You won't regret it. I would go back if $$ allowed but instead we will likely go value and pine for yacht/beach club.

Just got back from the YC. It is awesome! Not stuffy at all!

My kids (DS10 & DD13) loved it. Especially the pool!

Its not stuffy! The pool is really nice (they enforce resort guest only! with a gated entrance) and walking to Epcot is awesome! The only thing I found that I missed was good "quick food" options. The counter service restaurant is in the Beach Club (on the far end of the resort). And I found the options lacking. There is always a caveat!

Book YC if you got a good deal. It is NOT stuffy at all. It's pretty and calm at the end of a day in the parks. The rooms are light and bright. Stormalong Bay is a great pool. Walking to Epcot is wonderful....walking out when IllumiNations is over instead of dealing with buses or the parking lot can't be beat.

AoA looks like fun and it will be there when you don't have a great deal at YC.

OP here.....looks like we are staying put at AOA.
I showed my kids YC on my laptop while my husband pulls over his laptop and "reminds" them about AOA ( he thinks YC looks stuffy) and my kids, of course, vote for AOA. (DD9, DS7)
Not sure why I am disappointed, we are saving $ by not switching.....and I should be happy they prefer a value resort....I guess my dream of staying at a deluxe is just stuck in my head...as they are normally never affordable for us.
I will still second guess myself however, until we arrive.

No, not really. Its like going to a value or moderate and saying they lack options in table service restaurants. By design the Deluxes are focused on Table Service and Signature restaurants. Deluxes were opened providing table service restaurants, lounge (bar) with a snack bar that were recently renamed counter service restaurants to align to DDPs. Their really snack bars and will never be a food court as found in Moderates or Value resorts.
