I'll have to follow you on Twitter. I don't go on there very much. Sorry to hear about your friend though.

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.
Thank you I've definitely been around here every day, but usually I just scroll through the list of threads and look for ones that haven't been answered. I like helping people. Twitter is sort of new for me, but I'm getting the hang of it. I'd love to find more DISers on there! As for the Poly, I am very glad they are renovating again. I definitely want to book something once Hawaii is completed. Seems like most reports say that won't be until Spring. Not sure it would be done in time for our Spring Break in March. We love so many things about the resort, but our last stay in Oct 2011 definitely showed some signs of needing updates. It seems most people either love it or hate it. Personally, I love it. I love the theme, I love the location, I love the grounds, and the restaurants are so good too. You should give it another try for sure. I'm sort of mehh about the CR... we've only stayed there once but we are trying BLT this January to compare. We had a really nice stay at the GF this past January, I think once all the construction is done over there it's going to be phenomenal.

Thanks I'm working hard today to pull myself up by my bootstraps and put my Disney smile back on! I've really been looking forward to this weekend, and I'm excited to share pics and reports with everyone about the Passholder preview!

Cancer is a daemon that takes waaaayyyyy too many people, young and old It is wonderful that she got to see the quilt before she passed, that must have meant the world to her. I am sorry you didn't have more time with her but I think you're right, no one is ever truly ready. It's been a tough week for you but you will soon be submerged in the Disney magic and hopefully smile again! HUGS!!!

P.S. The new Fantasyland is amazing! We walked through a couple weeks ago and actually had FP's for the LM ride but never made it back to ride since we knew we had plenty more trips coming up it wasn't that big of a deal to us, and DS really didn't want to go on. DD and I will be sure to make it a priority next time we are there

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!!!!!!!!!!
I forgot to multi quote, so just posting again

Okay, I think we will skip The Wave, just not enough consistency with reviews and I have very picky eaters.

As for our Feb trip, I am sooooo torn! So many pros and cons to each. CR has better QS, close to MK (which is where we spend most of our time) and bigger rooms. YC has the MAGIC I am trying to justify CL. We drive so bringing drinks and snacks is easy (as well as grown up drinks, lol), but I thinking having another space to use would be great! Oh does the CL have a toaster? DD yelled at me last time we were in Disney that she only eats toasted bagels

I'm really excited to see it! I picked the "Enchanted Tales with Belle" experience. According to the PH website we will also get to ride LM and tour BOG. Nobody really seems to know what else will be going on as far as any special treats or souvenirs. I'm just so excited to walk through it I will be like this:

Just remember, you've got THE BEST QS just steps from YC at Epcot! Every time we stay in that area we always walk over there to eat. Not that YC/BC doesn't have good food, I'm just addicted to Yorkshire Fish and chips and Hacienda nachos! With a Grey Goose slushie for the walk between.

AHHHHH! Can't believe this time tomorrow I'll be there!!!

I too can't wait to see more of the FLE. We were there in July, and Storybook Circus was open, but the walls were still up around the other parts...we could see the tower of beast's castle and the beginnings of Eric's castle and the mine coaster...but I really can't wait to walk through it all. The other day when they posted the ride through video of the LM ride, I was sooooo tempted to watch it, but luckily DD8 stopped me and said we need it to be a surprise!!!

We really used to love the CR, maybe because it was our first true onsite (Swan doesn't count as it was for a medical convention). Our girls grew up there. What made me the saddest was I only had two requests, upper floor and away from Chef Mickey's. The room they gave us was on 6 and right above Chef Mickeys! The monorail vibration was very noticeable, and it really ticked me at rack rate (free dining was the only promo for our dates). We had two meals at the Poly and Jeff was like why haven't we stayed here. Duh, he doesn't remember our stay with the room with soaking wet carpet, not available till after 5:30 and the pool closed due to sanitation issues! Maybe that's why we haven't returned!

I have also remained PURE! I want to see things for myself with no spoilers.

Hopefully we can get more Resort Board people to join us here... I know the Theme Parks community board has a good thing going... I want all the resort lovers to ban together too!! Poly lovers and BC lovers arm in arm singing Kum Ba Yaaaaa

Oh I can tell you some horror stories for sure! We've had crazy things happen at almost every resort. Heck, one time at the GF I smelled this funny smell and opened the drawer of the nightstand and found a half eaten sandwich. Or the perpetually broken toilet this past summer at the BC that took a week to fix. Things can happen anywhere. Don't give up on the Poly yet.

Oh Erika, I forgot about the darn toilet That was such an ordeal! I still cant believe they couldn't move you! Well they could, but it was a King room, right?

When we walked into our room at YC in September, it definitely did not smell right, even the bell man said something Housekeeping came and sprayed but it did nothing and luckily the resort wasn't full and we were moved to another room, which smelled 100 times better. I agree that the problems can happen anywhere and you just never know. The key is not to let them ruin your trip

AHHHHH! Can't believe this time tomorrow I'll be there!!!
Have a great trip!!! And so happy to see another promoter of Epcot resort area dining. We love it for the reason you mentioned (although we're more TS fans than CS.)

Yep, the only thing they had left was a king room with a daybed, and we had 5 people, so that wasn't going to work. We definitely didn't let it ruin our trip. Over the years I've learned to let things go and just smile and enjoy!

Well, I was thinking more of lunch with the QS. But for dinner we typically always do a sit-down. For me I feel the restaurants are like an attraction all their own. By the time dinner rolls around I need a nice long sit.

But is there really a topic???

I am so glad that the WDW website is finally putting updated resort room pics on there! I was sooooo tired of going on there and seeing the old design. I was always wondering what Disney virgins must think when they see those pics. YC/BC/BWI are up to date -- only 3-4 years after last refurb...they still need to update the WL photos...

Don't even get me started on the WDW website!!! They have been so slow to get with the times. I swear with the amount of money they have to work with you'd expect things could be updated almost daily! At least the "my reservations" feature seems to finally be working better. Now if the countdown at the top could just work right. The other day when I signed on it said 22 days until we arrive at the Beach Club. I was like "Uhhhhhhh is there something I don't know??"
