The only thing is.... DH doesn't know yet. He'll be fine with it though. I think.
Wow!! That's really great!! Congrats! And thanks for sharing the info!

I haven't been to DL in years, but still remember Blue Bayou!! So cool, I wish wdw had it too. Don't understand why they didn't do it . Not for lack of space, that's for sure!

Anybody who's gone during the 4th holiday have any insight?
Never have been, but sounds crowded. Not that all of July isn't though

Hope you can swing CL, although for F&W you may not use it. DH & I did YC CL F&W and it was perfect. Both BWI & YC are great choices. Glad you've joined the RC clan!!

I saw this thread and immediately felt like I was not alone in the never ending drama of my resort changes!



I am 99.9 % positive that my reservations are final. I first booked in November at the Beach Club- CL Deluxe room. Once I realized that I may not be on CL floor, I switched to YC-CL as at least we would have better chance of full balcony. .Switched to the Contemporary-Atrium CL after hearing so-so reviews of YC-CL. Switched again to the GF- Sugar Loaf over concerns about lack of "theming" at the Contemporary. Switched back to YC (non club level) after hearing rumors that Poly would share GF pool during trip. It kept nagging me that we were not guaranteed 2 Queens and a daybed at YC so in the end....~drumroll~~...

Finally, somehow we ended back at the Contemporary but this time non CL.. Just tower- BLV. We also added 2 additional nights.

If the "price is right" and rooms are available, I will more than likely upgrade to CL at check in.


Wow. Once that is wrote down, that is a lot of changes! LOL!
You've found your people!!! You're right about no guarantee of daybed at YC and CR rooms are bigger!

Great dining options there too, along with CS options, Hurricane Hana's and pool bar have some great CS food, like the breakfast in BC CS counter in back of gift shop, esp the potatoes!! Ale & Compass have great burgers.

HOME. Absolutely.

We are so excited to go back.

Heather Long story short....the ticket price increase today left me pouting...this led DH to inquire about actual trip costs....he never does that....

Well, although he knew total costs of our trips, I think seeing the breakdowns in black and white really hit home. Especially when he started pricing out value resorts, etc...and realizing how much cheaper we could do Disney. Soooooo,we narrowed down our options by cost, and everyone voted unanimously to go back to WL.

DH also decided that he wants AOA to bookend our Disney cruise next year. He said that he loves our annual trips but says that we have to be smarter about the costs, which I totally understand.

So we return to WL, and we couldn't be happier about it!!!

Makes perfect sense!! Flight cost can be a bummer for sure. There's 5 of us, so I can't imagine how much extra we would have to pay if we had to fly. At least you get awesome military discounts!!! We tried to do AoA this past Christmas but no availability. Still want to give it a try at some point. I think your plan sounds fabulous, and I would totally be happy with it if it was me .... not that you need my approval or anything Too bad we aren't going at the same time. So did the change mess up any of your ADRs??
