WDWKOOK - Thanks. The BLT and BC in 2010 were a split stay. That trip was heavenly.
WL club in Oct. that same year was REALLY nice. We were so impressed in their food offerings (BLT and WL CL must've been an awesome split!)
And, yes, I did treat myself to AKL CL in 2011 when I ran the Princess half marathon. That was a solo trip and I loved AKL! Big time! Unfortunately, for my June dates it's something like $459 + tax per night, so I'm thinking more like pool view, which I've heard can be lovely.

This is my problem - I want to stay at all the Deluxe resorts, over and over again. You guys obviously understand.

Thank you all for the warm welcome
I have booked AKL pool view for our August trip! 7 nights!! (If DH wasn't against the idea, I SO wanted to do a split stay with Poly or CR!) but alas, with the 2 kids and driving and staying offsite 2 nights as it is...no split stay for us.

Welcome! You are in the right place! :-)

I think now I am way to far behind to be able to catch up.

I swear by the time this week is over, I'm going to have to buy a wig because I won't have any hair left. So the lady that was supposed to be there with me this week, hadn't exactly been there the whole time. Her live in boyfriend's step dad, the man that raised him, was found dead in his apartment on Monday after being dead for 2 - 3 days. Now this is a man that was in bad enough health that he should have been living with someone and couldn't get up to use the restroom most of the time, yet no one checks on him for several day. Anyway, she has used every excuse under the sun to leave. One time it was because her boyfriend is supposed to be in a wedding this weekend and one of the step dad's favorite bbq places is right beside the store he has to pick up his shirts, and she just can't let him go by himself. Then today it was, "he's go over to the step dad's empty apartment to say good bye to the apartment, but my older kids get out at 2:45 and then I'll be back here by 3" A little later she texts the lady next door, who has her own in home day care and tells her to pick up her older kids from school, because she won't make it back in time. Meanwhile, I have her youngest child. She never sends me a text or tells me anything. When she comes to pick up her youngest, I could tell she just wanted to grab and go. Luckily after finding I had 7 bigger kids (that weren't behaving well) and 2 infants (who were both not happy) she stayed for an hour. Tomorrow I will be by myself again since the memorial service is at 10:30, right before lunch. WOOT!! I need a drink.....and a big one. Someone get their magic wand out and Bibbity-Bobbity-Fairy-Godmother-poof me to Disney World please.

So sorry it's been more stressful than you'd originally thought, but glad you're still hanging in there and have at least a little hair left, right?? :-) *hugs*. Just one more day!!

Thanks and yep, only one more day. On the bright side we are only 99 days from starting our drive to WDW and the DH really wants to stay at the Swan the night before we check into the AKL. We were thinking of trying to get from Biloxi to Gainsville, but then I realized that Orlando is just a couple of more hours. We have always wanted to stay at the Swan, because our last name is Swann. If we do book the Swan we'll check into the Swan in 100 days and the AKL in 101.
