April 12th starts the value season at Bonnet Creek. I moved our arrival to the 12th and saved about $100 for the same number of nights. We booked through Vacation Strategy. The quote is for $638 including taxes and fees. Coronado Springs room only for same dates is over $1800 and AoA over $1200. We thought we would check it before we had another family trip.

I wrestled back and forth with the AoA and CBR, but we have stayed at CBR before and honestly I just love it there... maybe next time I will try AoA!

Not that I really mind cheerleaders, because my daughters have done competition cheer before (we moved to gymnastics instead last year) but I hope it's not overly crowded - like my hubby said at least it's outside entryways they can't run up and down inside halls like they have in past competition hotels.

I may have to rethink this....


Is it Worlds?

I'm just going to throw in our CBR experience with cheerleaders....and maybe this is part of the reason we don't like CBR. But, the cheerleaders would be out in the parking lots rehearsing their routines until LATE hours of the night. We were soooo annoyed that no one made them be quiet!

And then, on mornings when they would go to the parks, if you found 2 cheerleaders in line for a bus, forget it! By the time the bus came, there would be 20 and they would cut you because the first two were "saving their place" and they had to stay together.

I've got a quote request in with them now. Thanks for the info.

Now, does that mean I should change your date on the first page to the 12th or are you still arriving on the 11th and staying somewhere else?

I hope your quote is as good as mine

Yes please. I was holding off officially changing it in case I changed my mind, but the trip was just getting to long. So, I guess we will be arriving the 12th.

I feel the same. It's very frustrating. But experience tells me that no matter how many days you are counting down eventually you make it to double, and the single digits. And then I start with the "There isn't enough time." I am a little better this time. But I haven't been able to make myself change my tickers because they have actually moved! If I change them they go all the way back to the beginning

Add me to the list!

We are regular "first week in April" visitors, because I teach. This year we are going over NYE b/c my children and I do not have to return to school until Jan. 8. Because of that, we have been holding out for committing to a resort for our April trip. We are still debating where to stay b/c we may love WBC so much in January that the kids want to return...or we may wish to keep our pattern of trying something new. Today, I finally buckled down and booked AoA LM, just so that we have something booked (and because I feel myself being pulled back onsite since we will be offsite for Jan.)....

But, I feel myself falling prey to being a resort changer for this trip....We shall see! I love planning for WDW trips and if I find a better deal or perhaps decide to rent DVC for part of the week.... But, we have a room in a resort that DD 9 and DS 6 will love, so it is a good place to start.

So, for now, put me down for traveling March 29-April 6, 2013 and staying at AoA in a Little Mermaid Room!

I have an app on my phone counting down for me 😃 the next milestone is below 200 days!!! Rofl!!

I have something going on, be it a party or a gig or birthday, every month between now and Christmas- so it's not like I don't have anything else to look forward too..... I think it just seems longer to wait as I had to give up a trip to Spain this year to be able to afford to come to Florida next year 😁

I know, I don't like looking at the number of days, it seems way too far off! I was excited at one point when I noticed my month countdown had hit 9, I thought, hey, we're in the single digits now! And then I realized, I could still get pregnant and have a baby in that time. And then I was depressed b/c that's a LONG time, lol!

Seriously, though, after the trip I always wish I still had it to look forward to, so I'm trying to enjoy the anticipation a little more this time.

Ugh, I don't know what to do. We're 90% certain the family is going to WDW together, arriving on 3/31. I just checked and Southwest released their fares through the dates of our trip. From PHL to MCO on 3/31 it's only $129 each for me and DH.

I guess we could book and if we don't go, we have 12 months to use the credit to book and travel. I just can't decide what to do, what a conundrum.
