I'm so excited!!!

trish - Hoping your anniversary redo is

wookie - I like the change in plans. Although I'm not the biggest DTD fan, so take that for what it's worth

Grumpy Grandma - The FP business is so screwy right now. By the time we got to AKV we could pull FP using our APs plus our KTTW from Poly, BC and AKV all at the same time.

We didn't abuse it too much since we couldn't actually move quickly enough to use up that many FP's anyway.

I was trying to picture you pulling FPs for all (is it 6 resorts now???) of your KTTW at a time.
No it's only 5 resorts. I won't be able to do anything else but pull FPs! I'll never have time to use them .... just pull them!!!

If we were at WDW longer, I would mind spending a night at DTD. It just takes so much park time away. Plus I really want to enjoy our resort this time.

Thanks! And we've discussed it, but it seems like it would be an issue if we do the dining plan, and now that they have these new RFID mugs...I'm just not sure. I've priced a couple of options but haven't found any that really work for us. Maybe I'll keep trying.

We had thought about doing a split stay for our trip to save enough money on the first part, to be able to upgrade to a savanna view at the AKL. The one thing that stopped us was the dining plan. Since they see each resort as a separate ressie, we would have had to had park tickets on both the AKL and CSR. Once we had to do that, it didn't give us any savings really.

Hi everyone! I've been MIA since about 2 months ago. Things are crazy around here...Daniel has a new therapist and psychiatrist and is on a new course of meds. In the meantime I have cancelled for October. We will postpone until next year when he is better stabilized and I don't have to worry so much about his outbursts. I'm looking at August next year. Still a year away.

Oh Dani! Sorry to hear your hands have been full. Also, cancelling, that is too bad, but it sounds like you are working on more important things with your DS. HUGS to you, and glad to hear from you. Are you still doing the TA thing? How is Lily?

I would much rather have him on the right track than to go back before he's ready and have a repeat of our June trip. What a nightmare.

Still doing the TA thing, and just signed on to sell even more destinations with other vendors! I am looking forward to a possible cruise on Princess or Norwegian next year!

Sounds like a good option to move your trip. You will enjoy it more if actually relaxing instead of stressing. Time will fly and your trip will be here before you know it.

Some people only ever go once, can you imagine???

This gives you more time to save up and possibly more options?

Also magic bands issues may be fixed by then too

Glad to hear the TA is going well, and yes, getting family things straightened out comes first.

Hey Dani! I was just thinking about you earlier today and almost posted a where's Dani? question.

Sorry about Daniel My DS7 just got his Dx earlier this year and things have been a MESS with him. It can be so frustrating trying to get everything under control. Luckily he does really well traveling, but home is a whole 'nother story though

Sorry about your trip too, but at least you have lots of time to plan and save!

Don't forget to take care of yourself too, ok?

DH just gave the go-ahead that if we can get X-mas presents kick started now, and get the bulk done, why don't we do CL at the BWI in November?

I knew I created a monster. But it was so nice... HELP!!

So you recommend it? I really think for the ease of what it provided us at BC (food, convenience, a feeling of homeyness) it was worth it for us. Is it true that all of the CL rooms at BWI are boardwalk view? EDITED: Nevermind, I see not all standard rooms CL face boardwalk, some are GV or PV . But still...Talk me into this!!

That's what I've found when working out the cost. I even thought maybe two nights at one without dining, but it still didn't save much. I am back to looking at my hat full of slips of paper. Maybe I'll just draw one and let fate decide!

I think if you liked BC CL you will love BWI CL.

The CMs are super nice, the lounge is fairly large and well appointed, and the offerings are pretty good. The convenience factor is the best part for me. No walking down to the boardwalk just for a mug refill or whatever.

It is nice that you can get a BW view, but we had a GV that had a view that we loved of Spaceship Earth, the Eiffel Tower and Illuminations!

Now I'm wishing BWI was available for my dates.
