New ticker alert!!



As you can see from my pretty new ticker, there will no longer be a girl’s trip to WDW in Feb 2013. Hopefully we will be able to go back in Feb. 2014 for the Princess Half but we’ll see.



I have been driving DH crazy lately trying to get him to agree to do a few days in FL over the summer. I have been missing Disney like crazy lately. Everything seems to remind me of WDW lately. We were driving around town yesterday and out of the corner of my eye I thought I saw a monorail track. (It was just a regular train track over a small bridge)



I have also been thinking about upcoming trips. As much as I want to do a half marathon in Disney, the idea of traveling there over Feb. break doesn’t appeal to me much. Plus, I want our next family trip to be a very relaxed half Disney/ half Universal trip with lots of resort and waterpark time. Since I also want to see the xmas decorations, I thought we could do a Nov. 2013 trip. However, Typhoon Lagoon is closed. Plus, who knows how Nov. weather will be?


I start thinking maybe our next family trip should be the week of Caitlin’s birthday next year, which is in Oct. It sounds perfect. Great weather, food and wine, waterparks and fall decorations. Only problem is that I wouldn’t see the xmas stuff. So I asked DH If he would mind if our girls trip moved up to Dec. He said as long as I stop talking about Disney to him, he doesn’t care when we go. I headed over to Jen’s house to ask her but she had the nerve of not being home. Later on I sent her a text and she agreed on the dates I had in mind.



Jenny, Caitlin and I will be in Disney from Dec.7 – Dec. 10. Unfortunately, it can’t be longer due to Caitlin being in school but with an early flight there and late flight back we will have almost 4 days of parks.



Now, on to the important stuff.


Where to stay?


I thought it would be hard to arrange a trip with another diser who has their own favorite resorts and dining choices but for some reason neither Jen or myself really care where we stay this trip. I think because we both know we will spend most of our time in the parks the resort really doesn’t matter.

It will most likely be between a value or moderate but I am going to list my deluxe choices too, because I like to daydream and I do buy a powerball ticket most Wednesdays and Satudays.


I would love to hear your top two choices. One realistic, budget choice and one no budget, $$$ is no object choice.



Value


Art of Animation




This is my only pick for staying in a value. Not really interested in the All Stars and we have already stayed at Pop.





Moderates


Coronado Springs





Caitlin and I have not stayed here yet. I think it looks nice and I know Caitlin would love the pool. But will we have enough time or good enough weather to use it. Jen has stayed here, but it was just for one night so that doesn’t really count, does it?



Port Orleans Riverside







We have all stayed here. However, it was pre-refurb so I would love to try the new royal rooms or the new AB rooms. The AB rooms have an added bonus that we would all have our own bed. Caitlin is a huge bed hog and I never sleep well when I have to share a bed with her.



Port Orleans French Quarter





No one in our group has stayed here. It seems like a pretty good option. DH never wants to stay here or CSR, he doesn’t like the look of them so it would be a good chance to check them out. The resort is nice and compact and there is only one bus stop. Plus, Jen loves the color purple so I’m sure she’ll like the comforters.




Deluxe


I would love to stay at any deluxe resort but for a Christmas trip, only four really call to me.


Animal Kingdom Lodge



Caitlin and I love this resort. So far it is my favorite Disney resort and I would love to go back. Jen has not stayed here, but I wonder how she would feel about staying here without her DH, since I’m sure he would love this resort. Plus, this is my DH’s favorite resort so I know we will be back one day.

Also for such a short trip a deluxe that is closer to a theme park and has other transportation besides buses is probably a better option. But I would really love to wake up with giraffes out side my window again.

I also know that Caitlin would love to stay here with her aunt and show her all the awesomeness that is AKL.




Wilderness Lodge




I have always thought that if we went on a xmas trip we would stay here. It has the perfect feel for the holidays. Since it’s the cheapest deluxe it could still be possible if Disney is nice enough to release a room only discount. However Jen has stayed here multiple times and might want to try something new. However, the rooms are getting redone soon and we might need to check them out.



Grand Floridian





This was always my top choice for a girl’s only trip with DD since DH HATES GF. We will never stay there with DH.

Let’s pretend for a moment that the GF doesn’t cost anymore than the other resorts.
Along with the WL, it is the most Christmassy. It is close to the MK for the xmas party. The pools look decent. And they stayed there on Full House.
Once you bring back the extra cost though, it doesn’t seem worth it. Not only will you have the extra resort cost, but for me I would have too many great dining options that it would add to my food budget too.

Last deluxe choice




Boardwalk Inn





I think this one is my favorite. The ability to walk to two parks, the dining options around BW, being able to check out the BC/YC decorations.

What are your top picks?

AOA
POR
POFQ
CSR

WL
BWI
GF
AKL

Okay, here are my picks:

If I needed to stay on a tight budget, I would definitely give AoA a try.

If I could spend a little but not go all the way to deluxe, I would choose a Royal Room at POR. That would be a terrific room for a girls' trip.

But, if I could pick any resort then I would pick Boardwalk. It just looks so pretty & the location seems terrific. Wilderness Lodge would be my 2nd choice for a deluxe. I do think it has the overall best Christmas feel of all the Disney resorts.

Can't wait to hear what y'all pick!

Ooooh...more plans = more fun! Personally, I've always wanted to stay at AKL over Christmas, but this was always my idea if/when we ever go during the actual Christmas week. I figure with all the things to do at AKL, if we weren't able to do the parks (or didn't want to deal with the crazy crowds), we'd still have plenty to do. Plus, something about the resort itself feels a little Christmas-y. Sorta.

As for mods, I love, love, love CSR. I really, really do. The rooms are fabulous and the pool is great, too. Plus, the bus service is excellent.

I also really like the BWI option, as that area is just fantastic.

I don't think you could wrong with your choice, though.

Congratulations on your brandnew exciting ticker!!!!!!!!

Did I read that correctly and your February trip is off?
I really would have loved to see you, but I do understand your reasoning and there is always 2014!

You are going to LOVE Disney at Christmas .... so fun and beautiful! We went there a few years ago (had to take unpaid leave ) and we both absolutely LOVED it.

Resort choices:
Value .... AoA hands down! I have my eyes on it for our first night in February.
Moderate .... POR, in a princess room! Perfect for a girls only trip! Three princesses in a room, what else can you want.
Deluxe .... since you didn't list my favourite Epcot resort, the YC, I think I have to go with BWI! Can't beat the location, walking distance to Epcot and DHS.
If you had more time to enjoy the resort I would have said AKL

DREAM resort .... OKW .... okay, you know me!

I don't care where we stay just because this is a bonus Disney trip for me, so I'd rather we stay somewhere you and Caitlin really want to stay.

However, from the resorts you listed:

If we did a mod, any of those would be fine, but if we did POR, I'd like to try an Alligator Bayou room, just because I'll probably never stay in one again...and it would be nice for us each to have a bed! I'd also like to try Coronado again, since Brandon hated it so much, I'd like to give it another chance. I feel like we'd need a car there, though.

For deluxes...OMG, I want to stay in the Grand Floridian SO bad! Too bad it's the most expensive place in the world. I wouldn't mind staying in WL again either, and AKL and the Boardwalk would be really nice too. I'd also love to stay at the Yacht Club during Christmas, because when we went in there with the carolers singing in front of the tree, it was SO Christmasy and nice!

But really, any of these will be fine! I'm just happy I'm going to Disney in November, and then 3 weeks later, I'm going to Disney again!

I have to make a new ticker!

I would love, love, love to stay at AKL. It does seem Christmas-y to me to. The only worry I have is the transportation for such a short trip. If I'm going to spend money on a deluxe BWI makes much more sense since you can walk to two parks. However, every once in awhile I start daydreaming of seeing the giraffes outside my window. I just love them

CSR seems like a great option, especially since I know DH does not want to stay there.

It is going to be a tough decision, but I think you are right that there really isn't a bad choice.

I'm so sad I won't be able to meet you this Feb. but it will happen one day.
There are just too many things keeping me from going this year. Hopefully, it will work out next year.

The YC looks lovely, but I'm going to wait until Caitlin is a bit older to stay there or BC. I found SAB a bit overwhelming on our last stay. I didn't feel that Caitlin was old enough to leave the pool area on her own to use the slide and I didn't like having to constantly be moving to new areas in the pool. I like to go in the pool and relax, and there was no relaxation in that pool for me.



How did I know OKW would be thrown in there? If it was available through DVC, I would certainly stay there but only SSR is open for our dates. Plus, I think I would like to stay there during spring or summer. We will stay there one day, hopefully soon. It looks so pretty.

I don't think Caitlin really cares where we stay. I think she would like AOA best though even without a pool slide and hot tub. Even if we were to splurge and stay at the GF, I don't think she would fully appreciate it. Maybe I should get her to start watching Full House. Is that out on DVD?

Did you stay at WL while all the decorations were up? Was it as pretty as it looks? Did you see the new refurbed rooms? They look pretty cute.

AAH! Such a hard decision. I would LOVE to stay at CSR sometime. I know that Jen stayed there, but wasn't she sick that night? A re-do may be in order. That being said, the southwest isn't the most Christmassy. Trust me. I live here. No amount of Christmas trees will make me feel as though it is Christmas, and I have lived here my entire life!

I like AoA, but I refuse to support Little Mermaid anything. Ariel is awful.

POR is great because you would have the extra bed. If you choose somewhere besides POR, I force Jen make the resort selection and then say, "well, this was your choice so you have to sleep with Caitlin."

Alright let's see... and before I begin, take my opinion with a grain of salt as I've only ever stayed at Pop and am speaking not from experience, but from what I would want to do!

All the reviews coming in on it are amazing, the Big Blue Pool looks pretty awesome despite the lack of water slide or hot tub (assuming you get pool time and weather). The LM rooms look adorable for an all-girl trip. Also it's new and fun. If I only had 4 days I know I'd be spending them all in the parks and therefore unlikely to want to spend much on the hotel (and here you should keep in mind that I'm very cheap! ) This would be my first choice among values of course, but it would also be my first choice among all your choices.

Hmm, I think I'd have to go with POFQ since no one has stayed there, especially if your DH never wants to. Although the appeal of an extra bed in an AB room at POR is quite a draw. Personally I'd axe CSR, agreeing with oboedm (but without her firsthand knowledge!) that the southwest isn't someplace I'd jump to call Christmassy. So in order of my preference:
1. POFQ
2. POR
3. CSR

Alright, some thoughts.

ALK - I have to admit to putting myself in each situation and thinking about it as if it were me going, and I wouldn't go to AKL without my DH. I know how much he would adore the place and just couldn't do it without him. So I guess I have to sympathize with you when you wonder about Jen's wanting to do it without her DH. I wouldn't. Also as much as I want to stay at AKL (seriously, it's #1 on my list of somedays!) I just couldn't justify it for a quick trip. I'd have to spend more time at the resort to really enjoy it. But it would be awfully pretty at Christmas time...

WL - If not for Jen having seen it, this would be my top choice for a deluxe. Very Christmassy and as the cheapest, it would be my pick for a short trip.

GF - I have to agree with your DH, I don't much like that place. I have to put it last on my Deluxe list. Also, too expensive.

Boardwalk - My top choice. The ability to walk to two parks would be a bonus on a short trip and I think the Boardwalk is beautiful anyway, and would be stunning at Christmas!

In order of my preference:

1. Boardwalk
2. Wilderness Lodge
3. Animal Kingdom Lodge
4. Grand Floridian

Whoops! I've written a novel! Rainy weekday mornings make me want to talk Disney more I guess!

Mod would be POR/POFQ because that is our fave!!

Deluxe: 1st: AK, nd WL and 3rd BW during Christmas (I would rank differently at other times of the year! )

I think you are the first person to list AKL as your first choice for deluxe. I think that is my first choice out of all of them, but I think it might be a bit over budget this trip. Plus, it makes no sense to stay so far away from everything, but I really really want to stay there.

I've never heard of someone being against Ariel. What did she do to you?

I really wish they had spread the standard rooms throughout AOA so you could stay in a different section without getting the family suite. I would love to stay in the Lion King section but I'm not paying for the suite that I don't really need.

Thanks for all of your input! I'm glad it was a rainy morning b/c I love hearing other opinions. I really think we might end up at AOA. The three of us all seem to want to try it out, so why not save money if we can?

I think my top choice overall would be AKL and it is also Caitlin's top choice. But I would feel bad that since I know Brandon wants to stay there plus John actually likes it there.

I always thought I would want to stay at WL if we went in Dec. If we hadn't stayed at VWL last year, it would probably still be my #1 choice.

It looks like our vacations plans are getting switched around once again.

Long story short- Caitlin is out of school for the summer and is usually taken care of by Grandma. Unfortunately, Grandma is diabetic and has heart problems and not been taking care of herself and we ended up taking her to the hospital on Sat. She is expected to recover and be okay (for her anyway) if she takes all of her meds and watches her diet, etc. She would probably be okay to watch Caitlin in a week or two, but we decided to put her in summer camp to give my mom time to recover. Plus, I didn't want to take any chances again since I am already taking 3 unpaid days off this week to watch Caitlin.

Summer camp is not cheap and in my town there are no part day camps. Everything is Mon-Fri, plus I have to pay extra to drop her off early since I have to be in by 8. With the cost of camp and 3 days off this week, we used about half of the vacation fund for Sept. We could have taken it from savings or something but since we are saving for a new house we didn't want to touch anything else. It certainly doesn't qualify for an emergency so the cruise had to go.

Honestly, I do feel bad for DH but he doesn't seem too upset about it. We agreed to push it back until Feb. but are going to just cancel it and rebook later after we've had some time to think about when/where we want to go. DH is busy at work April- Sept so he doesn't like taking a week vacation during those months. I don't think he'll like going during Feb. vacation but we'll talk about it later.



We already have our flights booked for Sept and after this summer we still want to take at least a few days off.

I still want to make it to the TOT run so we looked at a few options.

#1 Take a Universal trip- stay at Universal for a few days, move to SSR for the one night to do the TOT run

#2 Stay at undecided hotel in Orlando and do a relaxing vacation. A day at Discovery Cove, a waterpark, lots of pool time.

#3 Stay at AKL and do a few days hanging out at the pool along with hitting all the waterparks. Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach and Aquatica.


DH picked option #1 so we will be spending 3 nights on the dark side before moving over to SSR for the TOT run.

Since Caitlin is now only missing 2 days off school (we fly out on a Jewish holiday that she has off anyway), Jen and I also decided to extend our trip by 1 night.


Our new Sept. dates will be Sept. 26-Sept. 30

Dec. dates are Dec.8- Dec. 12


Is anything else comes up and makes me have to switch something around, I am going to give up completely and forget all about going anywhere for a year. I just can't believe how many things have come up

Sorry to hear that y'all had to rearrange the vacation plans. But, at least you were able to make it work somehow instead of having to cancel everything! I think doing Universal & the run sounds like a very good plan. And for an extra night in December!

Having to rearrange is NO fun at all, but it looks like you at least get to go on vacation .... for now
I'll have everything crossed so NOTHING else will go wrong.

And if you are thinking of a February cruise - we will be on the one from Feb 17 - 21. Just kidding ... I know you don't "want" to take a Disney one this time.
