Well you were in good company. I think everyone said AKL, except Levenhopper and he might have had inside information.

Yep it was my first choice, many months ago. Should have just stuck with that first instinct.

That's awesome that you were able to keep the FD! I didn't realize that this was your first stay on site. Pop was my first stay on-site as well. I loved seeing all of the nostalgia in the lobby and seeing things that I owned. They even have a pair of the old fashion rollerskates with the wooden wheels. My mom still owns her set.

Well thankfully, none of our choices are "that kind of motel". LOL

I think all four options were guessed by at least one person. Sorry Tofu, changing the roll call again. But this time I swear I am done.


So after discussing this with DH last night.... We decided CSR looked too much like the condo we stayed in last year--very nice, but not Disney at all. We could stay somewhere like that on a different vacation.
WL was still my first choice, but if I want DH to ever agree to go to Disney again, this vacation cannot be a budget buster. AKL was a little cheaper, but still too much and DH had little interest in that one.

So POP Century it is!!!!! I am excited to have the food court and to take pictures of all the giant icons. I want to walk across the bridge to see AoA (and Jordan and Abby). We saved $500, so now my souvenir budget has a little more wiggle room. And the people on that POP thread are just so excited about going back to POP. I made my room request for one of the recommended quieter sections so we can get a little peace, maybe. I am going to start saving now, so we can stay deluxe on the next trip, but I am happy with this choice.

Thank you to everyone for weighing in on my debate and putting up with my indecisiveness. LOL
Congrats on finally making a decision. YAY! You will enjoy it.

Good Morning to everyone else on the board.

This thread is always happening....

The way this thread has been moving I'd believe it! Three pages were added since I went to bed last night. At least it wasn't 8 like the last time!

Let's play a game. Who can guess which resort Valerie is booked at now?? I will narrow it down for you. It is one of the ones we have discussed this week---POP, CSR, WL or AKL. DH and I are in agreement with our choice and are both happy. So did we decide to stay at CSR? Switch back to POP? Upgrade to WL for location? Upgrade to AKL for the animals? I really should have done a PTR.


Oh Em Gee - haven't read all the way through so don't know if you've revealed your resort but I say you stayed with CSR... only because you wrote BOTH you and hubby are happy... which means no additional stresses like money to upgrade...

Yes, 50 years in February. It doesn't seem possible. Of course, I really don't remember the ceremony since I was a child bride - age 2 or 3, I think.

Thanks for all the congrats. DH wants to know what we will be doing to celebrate - since we are going to Disney in Dec., do you think its too soon to return in Feb ? Maybe a Disney cruise again? I can't plan two things at once - the anniversary trip will have to wait til we return. That will ease the end of trip depression.

You totally got me!?! I thought for sure you'd just stay put at CSR. Good choice though. Extra money into the fund is always nice! I love the location of POP in proximity to AoA which will be a must visit for their gift shop...

Yep!! The CM said Guest Services would have to check for availability since the code was expired. I said, I'll wait.
