Honestly, I am glad I changed. The VWL pool is really not big enough to accommodate both WL and VWL in the heat..JMHO We also love our pool, and it was a BIG reason we moved from Poly. What are they thinking!!!

BC, BWI are getting room refurbs but to me that is not a dealbreaker...
Poly and WL with pool issues..I know pool hopping is illegal, but you know GF and CR are gonna be PACKED

We don't really have much space for pool time our first few days other than a quick dip, so we figure staying at WL we could still enjoy the quiet pool and the resort... however our 4th day is a resort day and our last day we are taking a long midday break so I would like a resort with a feature pool so DD6 can swim while DD1 rests (or while she splashes, too)
Also, our last two park days are MK/EP and EP/HS so an Epcot resort wouldn't be a bad fit... *sighs* I just wish there was something official with the dates because I'd hate to pay more for a different resort and find out the dates were all confused.

Honestly, at this point I'm almost ready to just stay at a moderate and save the money... just tired of Disney being so weird about getting the right information out about their refurbs. With Poly, CSR, BC, and this, that's a lot of rehabbing going on and a lot of it seems to be overlapping. Throw in FD and you aren't giving people a lot of opportunity to find a replacement if their plans need to change.

Hope everyone has a good weekend and
From good sources it will be down for your trip unfortunately. I like to think they won't start in August too...but it is value season so I wouldn't be shocked The reservations center did the same with the Poly construction...the whole IDK think, the IPO hooked me up with the construction coordinator and after chatting with her I did change. She said it would affect our trip in a big way

WL CYV cough cough courtyard view AKA provably a construction View - November 9 - 19
GF RP CL in a deluxe king main building and at rack rate AKA I'm crazy!! - November 19 -22

I've been reading along with all the changes, oh the fun continues : )
Fall discounts will include that RPC King room...so don't worry!! HOPEFULLY the WL will be GTG!

Monorail operating schedule this summer is fixed (starts June 22) due to technology upgrades or something or other...?

Going to be interesting 4th of July week with extended hours and EMH, etc...I am happy with the decision to switch from GF then...if I have to take a bus anyway, might as well save a few bucks too! ;-)

GF has the boats!! I prefer the boat transportation anyway!!! What stinks is the Epcot monorail!!!! However with the Poly and WL and monorail, I wouldn't stay in the MK area AT ALL But I hate crowds and construction...I don't care how much I love the castle I agree with you to save the money!!!

Maybe it was too early, but I read this on wdwinfo about 3 times and couldn't get it. Maybe because it sounds ridiculous?! I mean this can't be true. Is Disney really shutting down the monorails for those hours? In the summer? And it says, "starts June 22" but when does it end? This is crazy.
It is ridiculous! (the monorail not your ch-ch-changes) Don't be ashamed, there is NO shame to our game...in the future we really need a support hotline for our families. I had a CM count my changes (2012) I think...it was more than 50 And it wasn't the last one either...I think for my summer trip I am around 30, 15 with my poor TA....You are lucky to get one and they are getting a refurb in July right?? Brand spankin' new! KEEP IT!!! And take pics for Kook, she can update her thread

ETA - not loving the BWI décor...

wookie Kim, BWI now??

Welcome!! :-)

Those are the hours the monorail is operating. It just means that EMH hours are not covered and you can't get to EP at rope drop via monorail or MK at rope drop via the Express monorail from TTC.

Jeanette - you're right. GF has boats too. But the monorail is so easy...and that would be a major reason to stay at GF for us. :-)

Curious how this would work ... If the deluxe RP CL king room I booked later has a discount do I just call them to get discount? I added free dining to the first. If part of my trip at WL, but paying rack rate at GF

Yeppers, just call!! They can apply the discount to the existing reservation

Does this include if I have tickets included? Or just for a room only?

Either one, once the general public discount just call and see if the room is available with the discount. I've had it eligible for a bounceback and the 35% off room only rate

Thank you. When we had been planning to go to MNSSHP, we had planned on doing costumes that worked together. She was going to be Minnie, and I was going to be Daisy. I actually just got the yarn for the scarves today, so I'm going to start working on them.

I have had trips that have been through changes like that. If you don't mind me asking, what are the dates for your trip?

Oh and my friend's hubby could use all the positive thoughts/prayers between now and tomorrow morning that y'all can send him, his name is Mike. He had drill today, and had to sign papers saying if he doesn't pass his PT test tomorrow, he will be sent to a Fit Camp. After Fit Camp, if he doesn't pass the PT test, he's out of the military. The last time he has to do a PT test to stay in, he failed the run part of the PT test by a few seconds the first time. I know he'll pass, even if he has to take it twice, it would just mean a lot less stress on her, if he could pass the test the first time.

Thank you so much.

I'm trying to keep her occupied talking through FB messages, to try and keep her mind off of stressing about it.
