  • RPR (either Club or the King suite, same price)
  • Univ only Tix with Express Pass (no IoA this time, no time)
  • Cinematic Spectacular movie combo w/meal at Lombards (my DB will love that)
  • Meal/Mini Golf package (I am the mini golf sucker)
Remember the Express pass comes with the RPR booking so you don't have to buy them. Our RPR King CL room had a sleeper sofa...I'd go CL! Cinnomon rolls in the AM

Have you looked at Kook's thread, there's some great suggestions on there

I cannot argue anymore. It is all true. But the reality is this, I will not be getting my way with our Nov. trip. I will be holding onto the BC reservation until either an AP discount or GP room only offer comes out. I will then be switching to POR. Period. If it it not available, I will then be switching to ASM or POP 2 rooms. Double period.
Jen, I completely understand!

I understand so well, because the Pas family is now booked at POR

DH is so happy, he said POR looks relaxing, and the kids haven't whined one bit about no CL...

DH knows approximately how much our trips costs, yet when I suggest ways to lower the cost...going back to mod/value or dropping CL
I am met with futile resistance....so who's the diva, I ask him??? I think he's become as much of a brat as me now...

It'll work out till he can save enough for a car too because by the time he drives home, I don't leave for work until 7:30, so he can use our car for now. I am hoping he gets the job, he's 21 and had many struggles, but it's time to start testing the world on his own a little. I'll still be here to support him but I need him to start testing life's waters and trying to find his way. It's so hard when they are not academically gifted and don't know what they want to do! I hope things work out for him because I worry so much. I am so thankful my youngest - my 17 yo- has firm plans to join the military after HS next year! He's a bit more of a go-getter and knows what he wants. I thought younger yrs where hard??? Nothing compared to this time of their life!
Praying it all works out so DH and I can finally start enjoying some of our hard earned money again, lol!!!
I hope it all works out for DH and DS Marie

I know that in the world of our RC Queen 20 days is a life time to make more changes. I will tell you that when Janet and I stayed there in January we really liked it. In our talking stages of our 2014 ToT trip this is where we are thinking of staying again. What view did you book? Have you requested a building?

I booked Royal Rooms- 2 connecting Standard view, saving $1200 and adding a WDW day The pool slide was a huge factor!!! Brian said it looks amazing there, and he is excited! And proud of me!

Janet helped me make the call. I am mod-phobic...but I know where we will be, Brian was so funny he said the lobby is fancy like GF and I should feel right at home

Love the main pool area .... lots of shade for those hot July days! Nice quiet pools too. I like that there is a large CS and also a TS. We had a nice dinner there one night. And don't forget the boat to DTD! And last but not least Piano Bob!!!

I'm here to chime in with our lovely GG...

POR is the only mod that I can say with certainty we'd go back to. It's really gorgeous. And, I think, despite its size, the walk from the Royal Rooms in particular is a very nice one. Just down the path and over the bridge to the main building. Love the landscaping and the boat to DTD... and the walk to POFQ for a change of pace (and Scat Cats!)

The Royal Rooms are too flippin' cute (and NEW)! CBR just couldn't compete with that. (Mind you, I'm all cuckoo-for-Cocoa-Puffs over the Epcot area so who am I to talk!)

I'm spouseless for the next few days whilst the hubbo is out in Seattle. (I wanted to go! ) Love Seattle. Now, I'm off to find a tasty cocktail to sip.

Will your next move be split-stay checkmate?

Thanks pas so much for the helpful hints. RPR King CL sounds perfect then for DB to rough-it on a couch (but with CL ) for just a couple nights!! I must say I feel so OUTTA CONTROL over there at the Univ site. Scary, yet titillating!!!

OMG you know how much I love POR. It is our home-away-from-home. This may sound silly but the beauty of the rotunda lobby wood floor mesmerizes me still after all these years. It is such a beautiful lobby in my opinion. And imo the wood makes it feel warmer and friendlier, too. The shady pool is great for pas-clan hanging out there for HOURS sunburn-free. It is such a pretty and relaxing resort.

I find it to be a very peaceful resort. My DD and I always do an afternoon pool hop to POR. I do think that the mods have a lot to offer. The main thing I miss is a balcony but other than that I'm good. I know the rooms are smaller than the deluxes but I'm usually just traveling with my adult DD so that has never been an issue.

I've stayed at POR, CBR and CSR enjoying all of them for different reasons but my favorite is POR. I've never stayed at POFQ .... the pool just doesn't do it for me and if I don't like the pool there's no way I'm going to stay there. Now if I had small children I think the pool at POFQ would be fun.

I'm so ready for a vacation that it's just crazy. Our weather here is HOT HOT HOT .... over a week of temps over 100!!! UGH!!!

Wookie: I'm sorry about that sticker shock! Ouch. I blame that "OLCI" on someone here. Who was it? I had to ask too.

Magic: I'm glad that pic of my "flippant" Miss M could make you smile. (I wish the rest of her wasn't cut off. She even had her hands on her hips when she was doing it. )

Linda: When you've got a spare moment, I'd LOVE to get your pool rankings... The Official Grumpy Grandma Guide to Dis-Pools™.

Koh: Staying put in that case sounds like the RIGHT thing to do!

~~=======================~~

I'm so jealous right now. Hubster called me to find out what I could research for food options near the hotel he's in. I guess I'm better at these things? Anyhow, within a stone's throw, he's got 2 Pho joints, 3 Thai and 2 regular Vietnamese restaurants (not to mention a "homemade" sausage place).

We love Pho!! Sounds like he has lots of good ones to pick from! Thanks for your input on POR too. I think we have made our minds up. For the pool, boat to DD, it sounds good. Ooops, gotta go, DD8 woke up...hope she didn;t hear me talking Disney! Oh and we just ordered our X-mas party tickets for when we are there!! Yay!

If it weren't for DS and DD being quite the pirate fans, we'd be staying at POR or POFQ (if we stuck with a moderate anyway). I love the wrought iron of the French Quarter and the smaller slide for the kiddos, but I love the looks of the POR rooms.

But alas, pirates it is! Definitely nice to be able to add 2 extra days since the original booking at CR (for the same price)! And since this trip will need to tide me over for a while, the extra park time (and downtime too) is an awesome thing.

I will just have to do a split stay by myself or with some friends or something later...(or a mother/son or mother/daughter trip). Planning a Colorado cabin for our 2014 trip for sure. Not sure when we'll get back to the World, but I think Universal will need to be a part of the next trip...
