Also, I love that at WL, I am guaranteed to have a full balcony and that there is quite a bit more seating at Roaring Fork than anywhere around the BC Marketplace. WL also has a much more peaceful atmosphere, but at BC I always feel like I am right in the middle of all the action - there is so much to do in that area! I honestly can't tell you which resort I prefer because they both have such different and great attributes. After this trip you might be just as torn as I am!

QUOTE=Missyrose;47434859]We stayed at BCV for the first time in October (we own at BWV and BLT) and had a wonderful studio that overlooked to DVC pool. It was lovely. And I was able to get my fill of that gorgeous view of Crescent Lake while lounging at SAB.

My fiance and I really liked the fact that the villas were set back from the main building, they were more quiet and tranquil than BC. YMMV, but I'd encourage you and your husband to plan a weekend trip where you rent points at BCV to get a feel for what it's like to stay there. Maybe your DH will surprise you and love it![/B]

I liked your suggestion Missyrose, so I told DH. DH seems to be open to this possibility. I suggested to DH about maybe arrive to BCV for a couple days to try & then trans to BC/YC for remainder of trip with crescent lake view. I want to leave now .......lol!

Thanks for the info. I did know about the Disney transportation thing. We will take a cab, while our daughter's family will be driving, so we will be doing it both ways!!! Thanks for the help.

we were slated for 6-10" here, and so far we have gotten 4" and then it switched to rain as I was blowing the driveway out!!! Then it switched back to the wet, heavy stuff!! Already canceling things for tonight

Thanks for your insights! We did call and request a full balcony, so I hope we will be able to have that. DH loves to sit out there and drink his coffee in the morning. I didn't realize the rooms were bigger at BC! That will be nice! WL does have a peaceful atmosphere, but we really wanted a change, so more activity might be good for us. As for getting lost, I think I managed to do that at WL before, so that is bound to happen anyway! Loving the flavored coffee syrups, too!!! Yum! Can't wait to check it all out for myself now!

I know, already talking delays and cancelling things and it hasn't even started yet. Last time they did this a year or 2 ago, we got nothing. They just upped our totals and looks like we are on the edge of being in the 12-24" range now in Western Albany County. We better get something after all this hype.

Gonna pass the time looking at pictures of the YC and BC and plan ADR's.

They keep changing the totals of what we are supposed to get here on Long Island. Its maddening.

I'm dreaming of the Beach Club, a pool, a drink in my hand and most importantly, warm sunshine! Scorching sunshine!

I saw on the Be Our Guest list that you will be at YC when we are at BC. I'll have to look for you at the pool!

We also stayed at WL & loved it too! I was upgraded at check in for free- from WV to Courtyard/Pool! Such a lovely stay, very peaceful! My hubby & I sat on the full balcony every evening, we also watched the Electrical Water Pageant from there, nice surprise! I've never stayed CL there, I'm sure it would be nice.

Our snow totals have been upped to 18-24 inches...
Both of my kids schools are closing early tomorrow, so I probably just won't go to work.
I will be dreaming of having a Sunken Treasure and sitting by SAB.

Only 70 more days, only 70 more days...

Oh, and we absolutely LOVED everything about WL CL....I can't wait to see how YC CL compares!

Hi! My daughter and I will be at the YC in August & my husband and I may be there in March for our 25th wedding anniversary celebration. (I say "may" because he has booked the trip with the help of our travel agent and is surprising me with all the details other than the dates. I know we are staying on site & I think it might be the YC, but we shall see!) Nevertheless, we stayed at the YC back in 2011 and enjoyed it very much. One thing we never got around to figuring out though is where we can grab a quick bite for breakfast there at the resort. We ended up eating something in the parks each morning & on our check-out day hoofed it over to the BC. In reading the first post in this thread, it looks like the Ale & Compass sets up for a continental type breakfast. Correct? It was listed as TBA whether or not a DDP snack credit could be used. Anyone have any experience with using snack credits there? Please forgive me if this has already been asked & answered!

DH would rather pay more for the view, whereas I truly do love the view, but want to go more often. I know you can stay in the hotel using DVC, but it's so many points! I love how DH is standing up for BC/YC though, so cute! I'm not really looking for any real advice, its just i love talking Disney which drives DH nuts , so it's nice to have a group of Disney lovers to gab with! I'm just missing my BC/YC! Thanks for listening to my rant!
I have to temper my Disney talk at home. In his words " I don't mind talking Disney, I just want to talk about other things as well"

I now make sure I only bring it once and a while. It is hard ...

I live in WNY and they are calling for Nemo to hit around 1 a.m. I am pretty sure there will still be school because around here they never close. My district in particular. We have not had a snow day in 3 or 4 years
