You do have a very good deal! As you and I have said, we never know when they are going to end (or really limit) the very helpful mil offer. Might as well enjoy GF!!

And since you'll be in the neighborhood, would you have a scone with jam and devonshire cream for me?

It's so funny you posted that!!! I had just seen that CBR is likely going to be refurbed next spring/summer and thinking "hmmmm, 3 beds at a Moderate... good value!"

BUT, with all the WL lovers in here (thanks to EVERYONE for the affirmations), I'm telling myself that the proximity to MK, food options, and DELUXE-ness is worth the extra expense. And that the rate can't be beat!... right?

(as a side note, as of tomorrow I will have had the same reservation for a while week! My record since making it 4 months ago is 10 days!)

On a scale from 1-10, how bad is it that I'm leaving in 3 days for our (first EVER, no kids) trip and I'm obsessing over where to stay next August ? My youngest wants the Poly soooo bad and while everyone initially agreed reno's wouldn't be an issue, now that there is more talk that the pool and GCH might be out of commission, they're not so sure - well, everyone but youngest - she says she still doesn't care . I've thought, ok, we'll split the stay since we now have A/P's....well, she now says if it's split, she still wants the Poly, then AKL as her second choice. Well, mama is saying if we split, I want to try another new resort and would consider Poly and CR - DH is on board, but girls don't care for the theme of CR....UGH!!!! What am I going to do

So there are already change of plans for the wedding. Due to a couple of Jewish holidays happening the weekend of and after my current wedding and Disneymoon dates, I need to make some changes. What is the middle of October like weather wise and crowd wise? I was really hoping to do the last weekend of September/first weekend of October because it seemed like it would be a really low crowd time plus the weather might not be as hot, but this totally ruins my plans. Any help would be appreciated!

Honestly it is still hot right now. We were in WDW 2 weeks ago and it was brutal. Right now we are still in the high 80's. End of Sept is still very hot and humid and very much hurricane season. The later into the year you can wait the better. Crowd levels seem to be on the rise and of course F&W doesn't help. But generally Oct, besides Columbus Day weekend isn't too bad.

Hannah I'm thinking about late October myself for next year. I've read the humidity usually starts to drop mid-October of course Melissa just said about it still being hot and it's the 18th but that is Florida.

Sorry your having to change your plans but going a bit later if it is cooler will be better plus you can still do MNSSHP, and F&W

Was the week I was there an anomoly? I didn't find it to be humid (except in the mornings, but that burned off) at all, it was gorgeous weather the entire time I was there!

Yep! We were saying how much nicer the weekend we saw you was then when we went back the following weekend. The humidity is starting to level off, but the heat is still brutal. I just looked, 90 all week And the end of Sept is usually when we see our major hurricanes and really heavy rains.

I hope it cools down a bit in 2 weeks when I'm there or I will be spending a lot of time at the resort instead of the parks.

I was expecting hot and humid and was pleasantly surprised! This was my 3rd Sept trip and I remember the other ones being quite "Florida Summery".

We were also going to go in August, or June...sometime in summer...we have WL booked. Poly was definitely in the radar until the construction. We are going in 2 months to Poly, before the major changes. I LOVE AKL, and the pool was great. CR is nice, but doesn't "WOW" me. BLT however, I like...go figure. We would love to help and enable all of your decisions AND changes

Safe travels, you will love adults only F&W time
