I really can't imagine being disappointed at BC. It's just that funny thing that no matter how many times we go, I want every trip to be perfect...

It's silly, because I know we'll go back! I just need to chill out.

I'm back! I had to go get my hair colored! It seems like I never have as much time as I think I have to prepare for WDW trips! My suitcase is still empty!

We did have the appies about 2-3 of our 10 nights...I guess it's just a matter of whether we make the time to be there for the perks.

We are not doing DDP this time around and only have 5 ADR's for an 11 day trip!!! We are excited about not being tethered down by ADR's this time around....oh, thinking, thinking....
I get what you're saying. I never stick to any kind of schedule either, we are definitely more of a laid back family when it comes to WDW. Even without the breakfast I still think CL has a lot of benefits. Snacking, sodas, waters, beers, that kind of stuff really adds up over 10 days. I don't usually admit this, and don't tell anyone , but I'm also anti-DDP I don't recommend the dining plan to anyone who has kids over the age of 9. I just don't think a family of 4 needs to pre-pay $200+ a day for food not including tip. I think most families can eat for less than that. But that's totally just my humble opinion. I do believe in making ADRs, but like you we rarely schedule them for every night, and even when we do have one scheduled every night we rarely do them all. You just never know what kind of mood you're going to be in. We have nights when we are booked for something like Ohana and we just don't feel like it. I think it's normal to feel that way when you go frequently.

Of course the choice is totally up to you in the end... I'm sure you'll flip flop between choices... heck Poly or BC is a win/win situation no matter how you slice it!

Yay!!! I'd love to be everyone's DISmom!!! Heck, we were all here talking and giving advice years before Disney ever caught on to message boards/forums for advice. Back when I filmed the TV show the Disney website was basically ZERO help to people. I remember talking about the DIS and WDWIG (allears) and Mousesavers on camera but of course that was all edited out. Make sure you check my Twitter this weekend for live reports! I am soooooooo excited to see the New Fantasyland they might have to DRAG ME OUT of there!!!!!

I have a question food not resort though.

We are staying at CR in Dec and Feb, I keep reading a lot of mixed reviews on The Wave for dinner. Any thoughts from my trusted group here

Just came up with a resort one we are staying CR BLV in Dec for 2 nts. Also have it booked for 4 nts in Feb. We haven't stayed at CR yet so not sure how we will like it. Although we walked through last weekend and the kids LOVED it! Anyhow, I peeked today and can YC GV CL for a little more than what I am laying at CR. we haven't stayed CL as DH doesnt truly see the value, but we did stay at YC in Sept, and everyone LOVED it!

Thoughts on CR BLV or YC GV CL???

We've only eaten at The Wave one time and we weren't super impressed. It was OK. DH and I did sit at the bar several times though and thought it had a nice atmosphere. I think it would be worth trying so you can make your own opinion. Normally if we are looking for a single TS meal around the monorail we would choose Kona.

CR and YC are both great but the main difference to me is the theme and the location. CR BLV would be close to MK, the room would be large, you'd have the monorail close by for transportation to and from Epcot (via the TTC), but it lacks a bit in the theme department in my opinion. YC GV CL we love, it's super close to Epcot, easy boat ride to the Studios, a FANTASTIC club level, you've stayed there before so you know how great it is. The only downside is the room is a bit smaller and the bus to MK can be a hassle in the mornings or during busy times. Since you have two trips planned maybe just do both resorts instead of the same one twice!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you I'm just in shock right now and I feel numb. She had been battling breast cancer and things hadn't been going well. But she was at home and we were all keeping in touch with her. Just last week a group of us gave her a very special quilt we had made... each of us donated a t-shirt that had a special significance to our friendship and a lady in Atlanta sewed them all together into a beautiful design with all our names. <3 When the hurricane was threatening her neighborhood this weekend she was forced to evacuate. I think it was just too much stress for her weak body to handle. I'm trying to be strong and know she's in a better place, but I thought we'd have more time, or some advance notice to at least try to be ready. But I guess nobody is ever ready.

{hugs} to you, it's been a while since I've seen you on here! Glad to know you're on twitter, I don't know about you but lately I have found myself pulling away from here and spending more time on FB and Twitter. What's your feel for the Poly now? I admit, our only stay there was like '04, before the last Reno and we were not that impressed. Lately we've been rotating between GF and CR a lot. Last CR stay the first of this month was eh, nothing wrong but nothing overwhelming either. Same with last Decembers GF stay.
