Why Do I Keep Looking @ Other Resorts After I Book?

I am driving myself nuts (not a long drive mind you).....A while back I had us booked at POR. Previously we have stayed at CSR and Pop and enjoyed both. Well, I had to cancel our trip.....was able to re-book but POR was booked for our dates so I booked Pop again but this time with a preferred pool view. Apparently I can't leave well enough alone so I keep looking at other resorts I can switch to for about the same price. Can do CBR (but a standard room) for $100 more or CSR (again standard) for $200 more. I remember CSR very well and I know that means a looooooong walk to anywhere, but at least it is a gorgeous walk.....I know CBR is huge and although I am not familiar with it I know it's going to be a long walk as well......Part of me says stay at Pop as last year we never even toured it and I really wanted to see all the oversized "toys" and walk to the lake ove to A0A (although we did drive there one night and invade their food court).....We will do the waterparks so the pools are not that big an issue, although the kids do enjoy a waterslide, it is not a deal breaker. Have to stay within a certain budget so those are my only choices.......Can someone come to my house and slap some sense into me

Hi Dixiemom,
Yep, that happens to a lot of us. It's not such a bad thing, in fact, there's a happy thread of Resort Changers who share their possible (as well as latest) changes. Sounds like you'd fit right in.

Sorry I can't help you. Our latest vacation started as 9 nights at CSR preffereed room, then I changed it to 5 nights CSR 4 nights BCR, next I changed it to 9 nights BCR, next was 9 nights BCR water view and now it is 9 nights BCR CL. I still find myself looking for other options and we only have 20 days till we leave.

I only keep looking for a better deal..we were planning on value (we pay for two rooms, two families) and I found a discount so were able to upgrade from value to moderate...now waiting for the new Disney discount program to see if that might be a better savings..Although it will probably mean changing resorts as we are at POFQ...

Ahahaha I think it is part of the fun. We leave in 24 days and Disney probably sees my number and is like "Block that nut" We were originally booked 8 nights at AOA LM room, changed it to 3 nights AOA and 5 nights POR, then changed my mind again to 6 nights POR 2 nights CL at BWI to our final change and one I am not toying with... 5 nights POR RR and 3 nights standard at BWI Doesn't stop me from looking though

Im awful too! Started out with my heart set on AKL. Then decided POR would be good to save some money. Hmm.....but wait...POFQ looks nice! So POFQ it is. Then, I think, oh wow....WL looks good and its all in one building! So WL it will be. (I think.)

So no, its not just you! lol

I can't even decide where to stay! I wanted to book today. It's driving me insane. We are only staying three days after our Dream cruise in October. My DD wants to stay in a LM room at AoA but then changed her mind and wants to go to Sea World because she saw an ad, my other half could care less, I am just undecided. I am afraid I will make the wrong decision. We have stayed at WL (can't afford), POR, POFQ, CS, and CBR. What to do?
