Stopping in to say hi. We are early dismissal today- not that it matters for the hs as its midterms and they get out at noon anyway. Supposed to be freezing rain later, hope it doesn't mess yo tomorrow-the conversation in the car was, what if its delayed opening tomorrow-what about exams?

Of course, now I'm panicky. So what do I do? Go check out availability everywhere else. Looks like the Poly is wide open. A club room there is about $600 per week more than what I'm paying for BC CL.

I'm not telling my husband yet, he already thinks I'm crazy. I really like being so close to Epcot and DHS at the BC. The Poly room would be larger and I'd still have easy access to MK and Epcot.

What would you do if you were me?
Honestly for 600...I'd switch to Poly. But that's me...I LOVE the MK area!!! Once, discounts come out (possibly with the exception of Labor Day weekend) that may widen the gap on price..BC gets at least 10% more off and it's cheaper to begin with..I think. The Poly pool gets crowded too, but you could splurge on a cabana and have a pool day! The CL lounge is much bigger with that yummy punch!!! Sorry...got lost for a moment We are staying YC for a huge discount, but I'll be pressed not to change if Poly or WL or GF can offer 35% again this summer...(I doubt it though )

And our DHs already accept our nuttiness...yours will too

Then stumbled upon CSR resort, have spent past several days reading every detail about the resort and decided to book there.

So I have changed 3 resorts without actually booking


So I have to ask, I made a good choice with CSR right?? LOL
I think you'll like CSR!!! Lots of fans here!!!

Mine either Candace!!!

He said that even if we have to stay offsite to make the trip possible, he is willing to do that. I am not willing to, but I will stay at the Pop Century if we have to.
I really liked Pop though....how about a mod???

I realize I am no help, we have stayed at the Polynesian twice and loved it. But we are also trying something new with the BC CL this May. New is good!!
New is good...new is good! (Hey Jen Poly is getting a refurb...that counts as new) New is good. My kids will like SAB...I will not miss the castle

Are they ever REALLY trained...broken in maybe

Ok so Universal is back. Last year I cancelled and rebooked it four times so this is nothing new for me. Just for fun I decided to take a look at my year end Disney Visa statement. I'm glad Chase has a good computer system that is capable of keeping track of that mess.

I found a really nice dog kennel near our home. I think I'm going to leave doggy here. I want to upgrade to CL at RPR. PAS any thoughts on this or should I stick with what I know HRH CL? Opinions please. Universal has not copied Disney yet! I still have my discount.

Our families vote is HRH CL. We loved RPR! HRH has the edge on larger rooms, and better nighttime snacks/desserts. Breakfast was the same. Plus HRH definitely has the better pool. I know you can pool hop, but it's easier to just take the elevator Plus it's a shorter walk to the parks..or felt shorter....The kids loved both lounges...both "beaches" but they prefer having a slide in the pool.

Darn I was hoping you would say RPR so I could try something new. If you take the slide out the equation which is the better pool? My kids don't care about the pool slides anymore. They do enjoy playing volleyball and ping pong with the other kids. The also like a good beach to play on. Is the RPR only 3 feet deep like HRH. The RPR pool looks bigger in the pictures for some reason.

We won't be around for desserts, but which resort has the best appetizers? Did RPR have hard boiled eggs?

I've been stalking the Universal resorts for a while. I heard that RPR is great from friends who stayed there. The reviews I've read say that the HRH has a fantastic pool, so I've been leaning towards that one. Both last year and this we've contemplated going to Universal for a day during our Disney trip, but I never do it. Next year I think we'll do a trip where we stay at both.

Slide out...RPR pool feels bigger. They had a volleyball net up, and half is shallow and other end is definitely deeper! It's got a lot of foilage so it feels more secluded. They have ping pong too. we stayed on the zero entry side with the girls but DS12 did swimming on the other side with DH. They did have hard boiled eggs and it was never crowded in the lounge. All things considered...time to try RPR CL! There is a separate beach area away from the pool the boys could play on..that's never crowded! I did see a few weddings there The dinner appetizers were Polynesian based, fried rice, chicken strips, egg rolls, unlike WDW you could make alight dinner out of them! (of course my picky girls didn't like anything) They liked the wings at HRH when we were there

Thanks. I thinks I'll stick with RPR for now. Of course you know I could change my mind. I actually haven't called to check on availability yet so that could be a deciding factor. I do love HRH CL, but gosh darn it I feel like I need to try one new thing on this trip. Now that I'm on the fence so to speak about a Sept trip I'm thinking about changing Wl Cl to BW CL. Do I really want to speak to guest services again? I have a bad case of changeritis today.

Tell me to just stop!

So, DH caught me on the phone with CRO again this weekend...checking for Poly availability again (still a no-go, only LV CL available).

My theory is that the GV rooms might not be available because they face Tokelau, which is scheduled for refurb during the time we are there, and if you have seen construction pictures at the Poly right now, isn't pretty...

Soooo....he got a little mad and asked why I can't leave things alone and how much is looking forward to the Yacht Club, yada, yada, yada. He can't wait for our date night and wandering WS and having drinks and snacks.

Just tell me to leave well enough alone. YC and POLY are in the top 2 for wanting to try them, and I got YC...leave well enough alone, leave well enough alone...right??? I need help!

RPR CL is also cheaper...a little, which would offset a change from WL to BW......hmmm I am NOT helping I know....

O no a changdemic..we are all infected The only cure is a call! Maybe GV CL rooms are booked because people are getting smart since GV CL is cheaper than a TPV room. AND you get the beautiful castle view CL. I know the Poly pulls you Candace, but it pushes you away too..and you are PIF!!! You could still have date night at WS from the Poly....ugh...I will admit if I could get Poly GV CL at close to my $$$ for YC CL I'd have a hard time leaving it

Yeah, I'm looking at a mere (at this point) $450 to go from YC CL to Poly GV CL if it opens up! But, what are the chances???
I feel like I just need to stop.

Let it Snow, let it snow, let it snow Ok I have lost my mind! Dr's office just called to confirm my appt. for tomorrow I had to cancel last week due to icy roads. I so hate Winter!

Jeanette And anyone else thinking about the Poly, since I plan on booking there not to mention the "new rooms" I will be surprised to see more than a 15% discount in the future. Remember when I booked CR And dscounts were released it was only 5%? I am jinxed but I am booking the Poly even if I have to give up eating

Have a nice day All!

I know, it's sad! I remember when we got 40% off at Poly. We figured with the amount we've paid to stay there the past 3 yrs, we could have bought a DVC. So, now we're looking at purchasing a DVC since we go every year and prefer staying deluxe, even that is pricey!!
