When our original check in date was 9/9, I thought it would be fun to check into the Swan on 9/8 before checking into the AKL, but there was no availability. When I called to make sure the website was right, I was told there was no availability from 9/8 to either the 10 or 13th.

I have no idea, sorry! We're there August, not September. I've already been there thought that the hotels were both booked solid with conferences.

Love this statement!!

Okay, I had narrowed down my choice for our Halloween party trip to BWI, AKL and WL. My sister said last night she sort of wants to save BWI for her 40th bday trip since that is her dream resort...so, I guess I am down to two. I have 2 days to decide between them.

My niece spent the night with me last night and I was looking at WL and AKL this morning when she woke up and she said she didn't want to stay at GF because she wants to save that for "her trip". Good thing she said that because GF is not on the radar for this trip.

So... I finally looked at the pictures on my phone from Star Wars Weekend and I now understand why a crowd of people busted out laughing whilst we were posing with a storm trooper. Apparently our daughter was making a hand gesture "unbecoming of a 6 year-old."

That is too funny!

I am nervously watching my Bruins...I am way too invested in these boys...my heart, my heart.
So the difference between CL AKL and Pool view AKL is well over $900 bucks...had a revelation that with room only, upgrading to CL only gave me a 5% off....pool view was 30% off. My brain was obviously fried from changing so many times between the original May vacation and now. It's a dilemma...because we really kinda want to do CL..but wowza that is a huge amount don't ya all think?? Thoughts? Argghh... Thinking of all the fine ..dining...and other things we could be doing with that $$$....

Me too! Well, not really resorts, just contemplating the cost of moving from 9 nights garden view to 8 night club level (sugarloaf) at The Grand. When I called the less-than-enthusiastic cast member sounded a bit put off that I would even consider changing less than a week out!

Plus it would be nice to check out for future trips........Thoughts from all of you would be awesome to help me decide! Thanks in advance!
We stayed at POFQ in January for 10 nights. We liked it, but I don't know if it's worth changing resorts for 1 night, I'd be inclined to stay put.

My dream is to rent points for a BCV studio that 1st night so that we can use SAB 8/8 and 8/9 -we switch to BW CL 8/9 so both of best worlds on 8/9! There isn't a BCV studio available, which I know is the norm this close. BUT...its just 1 night, what are my chances of one opening up from now til then?

I have enough Starwood points to get that night free at Swan or Dolphin, but once I book that, the points can't be reversed if a BCV studio opens up, so I'm playing the waiting game. It's risky, but both Swan & Dolphin are available that night, if one should become unavailable I'll quickly book the other. I don't need ME, we're flying into Sanford & will be using a car service, so that's not an issue with S/D.

Yes I'm rambling....
A night at the Swan or Dolphin sounds just fine AND FREE...for now. You never know about an opening, but then again I know NOTHING about renting points...how about a BC SV room?? With the Summer RO 30% off??

Luckily, they had me dps'ing most of the time, until we got to the last boss. By then in order to get to the bathroom I had to crawl, since the stinking ground wouldn't stop moving suddenly, but I could heal enough to keep everyone alive.
were they yummy???? Hope you are not "spinning" today

We personally love BRG
Good to know. Since we are going to be at YC for 12 nights, we plan on a Boardwalk crawl! Going to all the places, have ADRs for Kuzina & Flying Fish, then planning on BRG, ESPN, B&C, & Captians Grille .
I haven't been to any Boardwalk places since Spoodles

I know...I'm in the middle of some confusion......but I was going to do one more at AKL. But $$$ stopped me. Plus we thought it would be nice to see what CS looked like...for future reference. But all that is up in the air...see my other post....argghh.

Not yet...I'm going to sleep on it and get some opinions from the boards. Thoughts anyone-would you switch from gv to club, but lose one night? We'd still go to the park all day, and leave from there.

Hello strangers!!!!

As always, I am several pages behind...

I am finally sitting today for the first time since, well....yesterday???

DD9 had a 6 hour softball tournament today, so we were at the field from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm.....in 90 degree weather! Literally, there were girls dropping like flies....but DD made it through and now softball season is finally over!!!!

Afterwards, we went to a local day camp (our team sponsor) for swimming etc....I was so surprised watching my girls do things like kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding without hesitation. They are so adventurous!!!

All in all, it was a great summer day, that ended with ice cream. DH and I are sitting relaxing. He is watching the Bruins game drinking a beer and I am guzzling water like a fiend trying to rehydrate myself from being out all day today. the girls are upstairs in our bed watching Disney channel and hopefully they will just pass out...

Tomorrow, we must go find DD9 a new pair of basketball shoes, as Basketball camp starts Monday!!!

Candace...I'm a Bruins wreck tonight...normally I'm all calm and cool.. but man, these playoffs are killing me! That's why I'm on the Dis board too...trying to distract myself a little! Your daughter sounds like quite the athlete!

So everyone...tell me about BW......and quickly!! I need to make some decisions....and I'm looking at BW CL....
