I agree with this. A summer week at Bonnet Creek would be around $800 and you would get 1,200 square feet, 2 bedrooms and a full kitchen.

Thanks everyone...I am leaning towards just staying where we are at this point as we are already over budget and spend so little time in the room. We'll just have to deal with having 1 bathroom...unless some great new discount comes out (which is looking very unlikely) then I can't really justify spending any more money on this trip (which is in the beginning of August by the way). We are also doing a cruise....this is our daughters graduation gift and it's a huge vacation for us....we need to just appreciate that we are going. I am concerned about storage space for clothes though....any ideas on what to do about that. I really don't like living out of suitcases.

Wow do I feel your pain. We have to confront this every time we travel and Disney sure doesn't make it easy (neither do cruise lines, for that matter). The one time we stayed at Polynesian it was great but the prices (especially summer) have just pushed us right out of that possibility. We finally gave in and booked 2 POP rooms for our upcoming trip.

Can you pack some of those collapsible hanging shelves? http://www.target.com/p/6-shelf-canv...anging+shelves

We aways take 2 collapsible shelfs, request extra hangers when we check in, and then pack the suitcases into each other and put them between the wall and the headboard. Then we use the top as a small bedside table

Honestly if your budget is already maxed stick with POR. We are a family of 4 and going for 17 days so we are staying at pop. We are also at the max of our budget and we have FD. There is tons of tips to maximize space on the boards. You could also use a over the door shoe organizer for toiletries.

on the cruise, I would buy the over the door shoe rack. I have one that goes on all our cruises. There is NO storage in the bathroom so we put shampoo, hair stuff, brushes, tanning lotion all on the door

Unfortunately that is no longer allowed. Disney sent out a memo maybe a week ago--no more over the door holders on their cruise
ships.

Posters are suggesting you modify your holder so that it will hang on a hanger.
