That's another great thing about the Epcot resort area. The Boardwalk has great entertainment for the young adults in your party and its a quick WALK back to your room!!
Happy Birthday to your son!

Also this would be a package w/ tickets & dining plan. I know you have 45 days to cancel, correct? Would there be an issue? So it would just be a matter of canceling 1 day once plane tickets are figured out.

Has your family been the Family of the Day before?

Dee, you can add us to the BOG list...our dates are May 1-4, followed by a first-time stay at AKL. Counting the days....
Will do!

I'm not positive, but you may need to be careful that changes you make are a modification to the package you have, not a change that requires a rebooking of your trip (which may no longer be subject to the promotion). I don't know what the impact of adding one day, or taking one away would mean.

Yes, with a package you can cancel more than 45 days prior to the trip, but you are not guaranteed that you can rebook under the same terms.

I am hoping others with more experience with the booking/rebooking process can you more definitive information.

Help Me Decide

Happy Easter Everyone!

We are getting very excited about our upcoming trip...just 1 week and 6 days until we are in Disney!

We are currently booked YC CL GV. This is a reservation we've had since August, and we are super excited!! But, since this morning, I've also been a little confused...and here's why...

My husband mentioned that there is a pretty good CM discount being offered for the week we are there, on a select few resorts. He found out that for a few hundred dollars more for the week we can get a Garden Suite at the BWI, which also has CL access.

So, I'm just not sure what to do. I know nothing about the BWI. We've never stayed there and I don't know much about the Garden Suites. However, it sounds like they would give us a little more room, which would be nice with a 10 year old and a 13 year old.

I would be sad to say goodbye to SAB though...

You may wonder why I'm asking a group of BC / YC fans if I should switch to a different resort. But, over the last few months, I've come to learn that you are such a friendly and honest group. And, simply put, I trust your opinion.

So what would you do? Have any of you stayed in the Garden Suites at BWI before? I'm really puzzled. I know I'll be happy no matter what, but I need some good opinions! Thanks!!

My birthday today too.

And if memory serves, the last time it fell on Easter was about 10 or 11 years ago.
