If they have only the colors I already have I may pass on one this trip..especially since I would be paying OOP for one...may not get my money's worth on a such a short stay...thanks!!
Just pink, black and blue.

The CMs have all been so nice & helpful. And I hate to say it, we usually stay at the Poly & have loved it there, but BC CMs have blown the ones at Poly out of the water. They have much nicer, at Poly no one ever met us at the bus upon arrival, or brought us to the CL building (they're suppose to but never happened, not complaining) or gave us choice for when housekeeping to pass, The lady even fixed a drink while we were checking in! Way above anything we were excepting. We ate last night at Cape May. The food was good, my favorite was one of the salads, forgot the name though. The only complaint I have & tell me if anyone else feels this well, is the water is barely Luke warm on full hot setting. I like a hot bath, so I wish it was at least a little hotter. But I guess you can't have everything. Today we're off to Epcot.
If you still don't have hot hot water later today, pick up the phone and call engineering. We have very very hot water at the resort.

Considering YC for our stay

Hi everyone,

Our story - my kids and I need to not be at home for the holidays, so we booked a disney cruise...but it returns on the 22 of December. We are planning to spend the 22-26 at WDW and are looking at either CSR or YC. Both the kids like YC, and if Im honest, I do, too. I'm just having a bit of trouble justifying the extra cost compared to a mod.

I guess I need to know if I spend the extra money, will I be disappointed? The reason why we can't be at home for christmas is because my DH passed away a little over a month ago and we just need to retreat and to begin to heal. Staying at the house for our first christmas without him will be torture.

People have mentioned staying at WL, but I can't - we stayed there as a family in 2010 and I would see DH everywhere.

I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family.



For me, the main reason for staying at this resort has been the location- being close to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios. The second reason is the amazing pool, but that may not be a factor for your December trip. The resort is beautifully decorated at Christmastime, so that may be an advantage for staying there.

I have never stayed at CSR, but I suspect that you would (or should) get a bit more pampering and attention from the CMs at a deluxe resort.

Good luck with your decision, and let us know if there are other questions we can answer.

Dee

I would possibly consider YC just because it's so beautiful, so well decorated, and so close to Epcot and HS. If you can afford the extra cost, this would be the time to really splurge and make some memories with the kids at one of the most beautiful resorts on property. It would also make it easy to sneak in and out of HS and Epcot at a time when the parks are traditionally very, very crowded - you wouldn't have to worry about buses or long parking lines at two out of WDW's 4 parks.

I think the only way you'd be disappointed is if you spent the money but couldn't afford to and came home in dire straits. Otherwise, I'd highly suggest it!!

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you and your children are able to begin to heal- the holidays can be so tough. I recently stayed at BC after a few stays at CSR- while I'm pretty much a BC convert now, I have to admit, we did miss CSR a bit! If I couldn't stay at BC or YC, CSR would be a great choice. The location is what's key for me at BC/YC. You won't be sorry- but if you do decide you want to save some $$, CSR is great option.

This life can be so hard torian. I fully agree with ZehnHJahren. And walk over to EPCOT and listen to We Go On after Illuminations and stroll back. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I am so sorry for your loss. I find WDW to be a great place to start to heal; went in 2008 after my dad passed and 2010 after my mom passed... while some things were sad for me, I found myself remembering the happy times I had there with my parents which gave me a little peace.

As for where to stay, if you can swing it I'd say go for YC. While I can't comment on either YC or CSR specifically, I found when staying at BWV the ability to walk to two of the parks very nice! You don't need to really deal with the crowds for buses/boats... and even the boat crowds for when we did take that back wasn't bad a all (maybe had to wait for one... MAYBE two boats before we got on. And you know the boat will take you to your resort unlike the bus roulette of "which resort is this for?").

I'm hope that with where you stay you and your children are able to start that healing process

I was a question about the lazy river part of SAB

Is it all "over your head" deep or just parts of it? I'm afraid of swimming in water where I can't touch bottom.
