Ok had booked Poly for trip the end of Feb. then changed to POR for half the price. Was looking at AKL which I have always wanted to try but was afraid of the busses. I peaked at AKL with my AP discount and it's only 470 more to stay AKL. So I thought since I would be using bus service at POR too maybe this would be a good time to try AKL ?

I think it sounds like a perfect time to try AKL!!!!

I like the bus situation at AKL better than POR, only because I do not like the internal bus stops at POR. At least at AKL, you are only stopping at Kidani.

Well, I spoke with my director today, and he was able to talk to the V.P. Basically, they are planning on meeting my requests for the most part but on a staggered basis. Our normal time to get raises is in April, and they try not to do intermittant raises in between...

What they did is give me $2k/more effective immediately and then said that I would get closer to 8-10% raise in April versus the normal 3-4% we normally get.

But, I'll take it. It's better than nothing and I'm glad I asked because at least I know the issue has been looked at and will be addressed.

And, on top of that, our company has decided to give Christmas EVE and New Years EVE off as paid holidays this year....
So now, for the 11 days total that I will have off at the end of the year, I only have to use 3 PTO days.

I have a question about changing resorts and figured this would be the best place to ask it!

We have room only reservations for CBR for the first two days of our vacation. Now I'm thinking of changing to POP because it'll be over $100 cheaper and because the beds are going to be the same size.

If I call and change, can I move the deposit over to POP or will they have to do a refund and a new charge?

TIA!

If it is a package to a package change or, a room-only to room-only, you will be able to have the deposit applied to the change.

Hello ladies! I hope everyone had a decent weekend. I'll try to get back here tonight and catch up with everyone. It's just a hectic/tired/cranky weekend and Monday here

I called CRO to officially cancel my YC res for Feb, but of course the system was down and I was told to call back latter. Sigh.

Picking up the kiddos then off for another Monday afternoon of playing chauffeur

Christine and Sheila, keeping you both in our thoughts and prayers.

Lots to think about, but if you want to change you probably should do so quickly, before word get out too widely.

Strictly speaking of CL, I prefer BWI hands down. In my opinion, the lounge, CM's, and offerings are all better at BWI. However, they are still quite acceptable at YC.

Regarding the view, our SV CL room at YC was pretty much over back entrance so it had a partial view of the kiddie area of SAB along with the roof. It wasn't bad at all.

gwynne
and i heart, thanks so much for the responses! I agree and was all ready to make the switch. And then my husband and our two older boys said they all want to stick with BWI. Wow - I was surprised. But we've stayed at BC/YC a ton, and BWI just once. And they said they would pick Jackie and Pete over the pool this time. (So I sure hope Jackie and Pete are around then!) Now if you ask our youngest, he will say BC. But he will say BC under any circumstances - whether BC is one of the choices or not!

Thinking of downgrading (again...) sigh...

So ladies....

So much going on!!! Long story short...with Christmas almost upon us, I am realizing how much money we have spent (and still have to spend)...

This weekend, DH and I both had to get new tires and stuff for our cars to the tune of $1800.

Then yesterday, our washer broke....Sears man coming tomorrow, will be either a repair or replace...but regardless, it will be more money...

With all of this going on, could we still afford BC??? Yeaaah....but I am having a hard time justifying cutting into our savings for vacation. It's just not something I want to do...

Thinking POR again (for which we would already be paid in full)...or maybe AKL, which would be $450 cheaper than my BC ressie....POR would be the right thing to do though...

Thoughts??? Talk me through this one.

Are there other things in your life you can cut down on like Christmas spending, eating out etc. Your vacation is a long way off. You don't have to pay it off until you check in. I would stick with BC. You can always change at the last minute if finances are tight. You may not get that BC GV room back.

I completely understand...I also shelled out a lot recently...and I was even looking to switch to January...to pop or all stars....but the kiddos are jazzed up on yc cl...but to save all that money..and go back sooner...and possibly coincide with the RC trip.....ugh....ok so my thoughts would be to do Por...its very pretty there....but how much is your raise...congrats by the way!!!
