Decisions, decisions.

I usually go to WDW at least once a year but am considering skipping this summer in order to do more "extras" during our big 2014 family trip.

We'll have a minimum of 12 people. Right now the plan is to do CR, YC, and AKL. I've always wanted to stay in the Presidential Suite at YC and that will definitely happen this trip if at all possible. I was considering five nights but am thinking about only two and the rest in a LV CL room. I figure I could throw one heck of an Illuminations party for my friends for the difference. Then again, I could skip this summer all together and save for the room........hmmmm.

I know a lot of people who really don't care about view or room but its just something I've always wanted to do. I've already stayed in the Presidential at AKL and my sisters still talk about that trip!

So, fewer nights in the suite or one less trip? Thoughts? I know my BC/YC frequent visitors will understand.

Any update on this? We are leaving for YC/BC in two weeks and would be disappointed if HH hasn't reopened.

Thanks.

Deep breath!

We've been to WDW countless times and have NEVER had a snake in our room. That being said, if you don't need a ground floor, request an upper floor to decrease (the already very small) chance of an unwanted critter.

Be comfy in your swim gear, everyone! While I prefer the BC lobby, I thought the YC lobby was also comfortable, especially when Gary was there greeting. But in my opinion, BC lobby is especially comfy. (Yay, Teena!) When we stayed at YC in April, we spend most of our time in the sandy zero depth entry area because it was so close to YC. I thought YC was perfect for proximity to that area. In October at BC, we didn't even go over to the sandy zero depth entry area and stayed closer to the jib slide and the kiddie slide at the base of the pirate ship!

Speaking of SAB, I'm so excited to get back to BC - just three weeks! I guess that's odd since I'm technically a Poly/BWI guest! Still have to do a little cheer that the BWI pool is closed and we'll be able to hang out at SAB. Really hope Hurricane Hanna's is up and running by that time!

Hi YC Fan! I vote for fewer nights in the suite. I love a good suite, but I also love multiple trips. And someday, I want to throw one heck of an Illuminations party too!

Thanks pixarmom! This is definitely the way I am leaning right now. We'll have to see how it works out.

Hello everyone,

We just booked our trip to WDW for May and will be doing a split stay with 2 nights at POR and 5 nights at BC. This thread has been super helpful in making our decisions. This trip will be only the second time we have stayed on site and first time for a deluxe resort. With the specials I found I couldnt pass up the opportunity to be so close to Epcot and HS and right at the Boardwalk too! I honestly never imagined we would ever splurge on a deluxe but I think with three little kids the convenience is going to be well worth it.

I have one question (for now) has anyone had a child do the pirate treasure hunt thing mentioned in resort activities? Just wondering what it entails and how much it costs.

Thanks!

Heather

My son has done the Albatross Cruise twice. He loved it both times. It was around $35 when he did it.

They cruise the waters around the area and search for clues for treasure. At one point they go into Epcot when World Showcase is closed and actually get off if the boat and go into one of the countries. This was his favorite part, being in World Showcase virtually alone. They chase a pirate at the end. They also have a snack when they find the treasure. He would keep doing it if they would let him but he's 12 now. It was a wonderful experience for him.

Selfishly I'd hate for you to skip this year. After all you are a charter member of the "BC/YC Mini-Dis Meet" club! I will never forget your "surprise appearance" last year.

I know what you mean about the view - it's important to me too. I would go with two nights in the suite and the rest in the LV CL room and throw the kind of Illuminations party that only you know how to do.

Whatever you decide I know it will be fantastic!!!!

My kids and my grandsons have done the Albatross Cruise and loved it! In fact my kids liked it even better than the Pirate Cruise they did at the GF and my grandson told everyone it was the best part of his trip to Disney!

Fewer nights in the suite!

More trips always sounds good.

What are the best spots around the YC/BC that could serve as an alternative to the ESPN Club? My dad will be spending a decent amount of time at the resort while mom and I are in the parks and might not want to brave the crowds at ESPN during sporting events. Any nice TV/lounge options?

TIA.

P.S. 13 DAYS!!!! Look how close Mickey is to that tree!
