Thanks for the great advice. I knew the fans on this thread would have good recommendations

Our stay is 6/13 - 6/15. This is a short trip with a very short planning window. Not the usual way we do Disney so I am not used to dealing with everything being booked up. With my recent knee replacement surgery I had not planned on a trip but who can turn down a free trip to a great resort. I am looking forward to exploring the YC.

To get to AKL from the BC via bus, you would have to take the AK bus to the park then switch to the AKL bus.

We have never gone resort to resort other than by boat

Great idea. Can't really go through Epcot since we are not par hopping at this time

We were originally booked at BWV for the week of 6/15-6/22 because nothing was available at BC or YC for our dates. As of this morning I am happy to say that we will be staying at YC Club Level! Woohoo so excited.

JennCin78- congrats! YC CL is our very favorite place to stay!!

Well then take the boat to DHS and since you are close to the buses... take it from there quick and easy!

Everybody gather 'round, It's time for Ninja Mom's Advice Corner!

Recently, on another thread there was a poster wondering, (for the millionth time) which resort she should pick for her families stay. They were going back and forth between Blah and Blah and couldn't decide so they asked the wise sages that post on the Dis for feedback about what to do. I know that some of you reading this thread will be faced with this quandary one day. So I decided to chime in and solve all of your resort choosing problems.

Here is the best answer to the "Where should we stay question.... are you ready?? here it comes......

Stay at The BC/YC/BCV.

There.

That was easy wasn't it? It's sort of like I am preaching to the choir huh? Well I am, but if you find yourself in a position where you CAN'T stay at the BC/YC/BCV because you aren't willing to rob a bank or facilitate an early inheritance from an untimely death in your family, then you may be faced with the chore of deciding where else to stay. All that decision making takes time, and these days, who has time when we spend all of our productive hours reading the Dis Boards.

So I'm going to give you Ninja Mom's full proof method for chosing a Disney resort for your next "El Cheapo" stay.

Our family just writes the name of all the contenders on a post it note and scatters them on the floor. Then we call the dog over and the first one he touches is the one we pick. If something goes wrong at the resort, or if we don't like it, we can blame the dog for picking it. When we get home we are sure to give him the stink eye for a day or two. This makes everybody feel better, but not so much the dog, who is probably wondering what we got in our eye while we were on vacation.

Now if you have a situation where YOU want to stay some place and everyone else wants a different place.... well what you do is rub peanut butter or bacon on your post it note when the rest of the family is NOT looking. You give the dog the secret wink and lay your post it note down. Those dogs have noses like you wouldn't believe so it's a sure bet he's going to run over to your note and touch it first. Just be sure to give the dog a treat after he picks your note, otherwise he will hold a grudge and defeat your scheming the next time you have to use this system of choosing a resort.

Remember, if you "Help" the dog pick your resort choice there is no giving the dog the stink eye if you have any problems on vacation, because that choice was all yours, the dog was just in it for the bacon.

~NM

PS. Remember, if you are willing to take the advice of a bunch of strangers on the internet, what's so bad about letting the dog decide for you??

Grr...how much more? Looking to spend July 4-6 at the YC and have 1 military park hopper left and can't go to MK because of the BO. Guess I will need a trip to target.

This is the best advice I have seen regarding picking resorts. I see a new Disney How-to book in the future called "The Ultimate Disney and Peanut Butter Planning Guide."

Our 8 day hoppers ended up being 150 more for all of us, so I bit the bullet on DH's cc and bought them...

WOW!! This is a great Idea. I shall ask the dog if he wishes to get started writing all of the potential guides. I can just see his park touring plan advice:

First thing: RUN to Toy Story Mania, Get distracted by Pop Corn cart. Stare at it longingly until some one buys you a box. Spill box because your nose is too fat. Watch Disney birds eat YOUR Pop Corn. Give up and go to Toy Story Mania. Wait in line for 120 minutes because you are a dopey dog and got distracted.

I do think that Buzzy the Fly should be a ghost writer in the dog's Disney Dining Plan book.....
