Okay so BC is looking like its on its way out. reality is that we are doing cruise first, we want to also do a Christmas party, and now need some real life things. Sad.

We will get back there one day though. Maybe you ladies can help me decide on POR or 2 rooms at POP? Those are the only two in the running now.

Help!! Janet?? Anyone??

In case any of you are considering switching to BWI or BWV, I posted a new thread for you.

I have to run now, but I'll check back in later to see who has changed

Speaking of changes... :-). Talked to DH last night and got all my changes "approved."

7/30-8/1 offsite (Sea World)
8/1-8/9 CBR pirate room

Now to make sure all my ADRs are set! :-) Just will need to make a couple minor changes and move a few things around.

Have a lovely day everyone!!

Dani Did you come to a descison about BOG yet? I agree with Janet, keep the 5pm and then head over to DHS for EMH and the Dance Party.

MNSSHP on another night makes for 2 special MK nights with Lily-Belle

Willows You can watch Illuminations from the bridge between BC and BWI but I personally could not stay so close to Epcot and not head over there, it is literally a 5 minute walk from the I'tnl Gateway. But that is just me since Epcot is my favorite Park.

jenny Never stayed at POR or Pop just POFQ which we loved. I'd most likely pick POR to have just one room and not have to worry about the whole "connecting" room issue at POP

Good morning RC family It has been a busy few days but now we are settling into our summer break and I am taking a few minutes to catch up.

Koh - I think the pirate rooms are cute and probably a good choice while DS is still young and will enjoy them. Always nice to save some $ too

KOOK - DO NOT CHANGE!!!! I know you love WL and I know that is where you heart is, but I think CR will be great for a change. Keep trying for CL or BLT to make it perfect, but you know that you will still be happy with the BLV room too

Jen - okay here are my rambling thoughts I love POR, so much to do at the resort activity wise BUT with POP you would have 2 bathrooms and more room to move around. We were originally booked at POR for one of our trips last year (before I went deluxe crazy) and the kids were really looking forward to the boats, fishing, etc. Check out www.portorleans.org
I think you have two good options....I guess see which resort the girls like better

Willows909 - WELCOME (a little late) Seems like you have gotten some great advice and some great enabling We stayed at YC last fall and LOVED it!!!! YC shares SAB with BC and I really could have spent much more time relaxing at SAB but the kids were all about the parks. DH and I both LOVE the atmosphere over at the Epcot resort areas. Watching Crescent Lake wake up is breath taking as is sunset over the lake. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the area! I cant wait to get back to YC without my kids so I can really enjoy it!!! Oh and as a former New Englander......LETS GO BRUINS!!! I lived on the MA/NH border so know your area well

Dani - can I just ditto Janet's advice, lol! I think she hit the nail on the head. As we got closer to each of our trips EMH were added throughout the parks. I am sure if Lily HAS to dress up twice, she will live

Wookie - hope you got some sleep last night and your school work done

Miss - yeah, we are not summer people either...too hot and too crowded At least at AKL you can have some great resort time to escape the crowds

Ginny - you are hysterical giving KOOK the phone number Are there any of us who don't have it memorized and programmed in our phones, LOL!!!

Candace - I live 3 hours away and wont go near the parks right now! I keep trying to tell myself that it isnt that hot and humid and it wont be that crowded everytime I get DIS mail or see an ad, or get on this site But I know better and so do you!!! Hang in there, you will get through the summer and be in WDW before you know it!

Jeanette - I did see you made a few changes over the weekend, are you still at CR

SueM - how is the knee doing today? I hope you are feeling less pain every day!

Hello to Janet, Lacey, Shelia, Linda, MAGIC and anyone else I am missing


Melissa

Thanks everyone! It really is simple to hop over to DHS after dinner. I am going to analyze my plans again today. I am super happy I didn't buy our MNSSHP tickets yet!

Tough call, but I would choose 2 pop rooms to have more space...5 in a POR room is tight Family suite??? They were included in the AP discounts...speaking of cruises...I stepped on a cruise ship for the very first time EVER yesterday...to pick up a patient. It confirms it...NEVER doing a cruise It wasn't DCL though, just now that I've had a "behind the scenes look"

Hi Jen!
Sorry about BC, however, on the positive the trip is still on. Stayed at Riverside in January and loved it. Of course, I do love POP....if it were me with the family of 5, it would be 2 rooms at POP....more living space, 2 bathrooms, privacy, and plus you get fun theming for the girls. A chance to check out AoA as well. We've always had great bus service at POP and the food court just went thru a revamp of their menu. You can look at it that you all get to try a new resort

In May, you booked a BB, correct? It is a great discount, no matter if you go with POP (25%) or Riverside 30%. Theming is nice at both resorts. Any issues with youngest DD sleeping in the fold-down bed?

we loved POR. The grounds are fabulous and my kids also loved the pool. The Riverside Mill food court was probably the best I have seen at resorts so far. I think mine were close in age to yours when we stayed there. It was crowded when the extra bed was pulled out but that was only when we were sleeping (and this was pre-refurb). The bathroom area was roomy with a double vanity outside of both the tub and toilet area so we didn't have trouble getting everyone ready.
