Courtney
Of course it's a change! 2 fabulous resorts!! You might want at least one full day at AKL to check out the sights!

It will be awesome sis, and you will have day trips in the summer! Before you know it it'll be time to plan the next WDW trip

Hello RCers! I honestly thought my RC days were over - I was relatively decisive for WDW and DL last year, and I changed (just once) from Poly to BWI for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend next month. But I'm back to resort indecision, and thought someone might be willing to throw in two cents! Please help!

We have APs, so I'm considering a surprise WDW overnight while we're visiting my parents in Florida. Drive to WDW on Monday, DHS in the morning, swim break in the afternoon, Epcot for dinner. Tuesday morning, MK and then head back to the beach. I would take the kids on my own, so all levels of resorts are available to us. Poly and GF are sold out of our dates, and CR CL is available, but I'm not loving the current price. So I'm all over the map:

BWI - CL or not. Staying BWI CL next month and again next year. Really love it. So easy, great location, etc. A clear second favorite for our kids (our two teens rank Poly first and 7-year-old ranks BC first.) BWI is one place we can all agree on. Thought about non-CL to save $$, but if we stay there, I'll probably book CL. Or maybe not. I don't know. Really love that boardwalk view when staying CL - it's only a request, but when it's granted, it's such an amazing value. But maybe we should mix it up a little more.

BC: Our youngest loves it, but only CL rooms are available. If a standard non-CL room were available, I think I would be sold. I'm a bit meh on CL there right now (but renovations coming soon!) and we're likely to stay there for part of a split in 2015. On the other hand, the pool is wonderful and the location is amazing.

WL: Good price. Haven't been there in quite a few years. Love the boat to MK. Love the fondue at the Territory Lounge. Harder to get back for an afternoon break. Would only book non-CL because the price of CL there is close to BWI CL.

AKL: Also a good price. Don't love animals, but do love the lobby and the theming is impressive. Not excited about the bus, and may not make it back for an afternoon break. Again, would only book non-CL there, because the price there is so close to BWI CL. I sort of feel like it's in better condition than WL.

POR Royal Room: Super good price. POR is the only mod we have not yet tried. On one hand, our boys have mentioned in the past that a royal room could be fun. On the other hand, we were at POFQ for a short stay two years ago and while we had a great time and thought it was a great mod, we really missed deluxe.

We've stayed at all of the places on my list except for POR, so it's not even as if I don't know what most of them will be like! Just entirely indecisive - any opinions to share?
back! RCing never goes away, just hides! Why not try the Royal room?
That said...I love location. WL is freshly refurbished and a boat ride from MK...and you love the Epcot area..oh boy, I am not helping...For the one day you will do Epcot and DHS...I would stay in the Epcot area

Thanks to mousemommy, heather, janet and jeanette, I'm closing in on a decision (for now, at least!) I'm VERY inspired by heather's POR trip report and jeanette's enthusiastic suggestion! I think we're going to skip the resort time in the afternoon and just have a day and a half of park time. Which means I'm leaning more towards the POR royal room. Fun to try, great price, completely different from our other stays. In fact, I booked it . . . at least for now! But janet makes such an excellent point about the Epcot resort area - so easy for the day at Epcot/DHS. The music, the balcony, the atmosphere, the interior hallways, no bus . . . With AP discount, it's POR royal/garden view for $204 and BWI standard for $358. I'll have to keep thinking about this . . . and will continue to solicit advice from all!

So happy to see everyone here again - can't catch up, but I did take a look at all the fabulous trips you all have planned! Happy to see Grumpy is heading to DL shortly! Just love GCH - rented a cabana there last summer and it was wonderful!! We'll be in Newport again at the end of this month, but no DL this time.

And for those with frozen pipes, I'm with you!!

Hi ladies! So far behind, thanks for the encouraging words for our trip! Think we will be good, just nixing any other big trips for this year though.

DH and I are heading out for a day together tomorrow to hunt for a vehicle. Looking forward to it. Any word from Erica? Hoping they made it home safely.

Hugs to all! An extra big hug for you Sheila.

Sheila: Sending love and a big to you.

Koh: Will add your GF trip to the List.

Pixarmom: Congrats! POR RR will be awesome! What your dates? Will be good to see your name on the RC list! (remember, it's not binding. )

Jen, oh good news for March! Hoping today's excursion nets you a great deal. (I hate shopping for cars myself).

Koh1977, I'm only posting based on what I've read and tried so far - I have not yet actually secured a BOG FP for lunch yet. Based on what I've read, you go to the BOG website: beourguestlunch.disney.go.com. It will allow you to log in and select a day for a BOG FP. I've been able to get that far, and the site "knows" that we have a resort reservation for February. But when I try to actually reserve a FP for one of our February days, it says no FP are available. BUT on another thread, posters report that's because it's too early - that FP times will open up for February soon, but that for now, it just says "not available." I'm just experimenting with it for February, but I would really like a BOG FP for our quick March visit!


Sheila, just wanted to let you know you are in our thoughts and prayers today.

Thanks, Janet! I've gone back and forth between POR RR and BWI a million times already today. At least I've paid the lesser of the two deposit amounts while I continue to waffle!

So our dates for February are Feb. 20-23 BWI CL (cannot pull me away from there for the Princess Half Marathon!) and March will be March 31-April 1 POR RR (or BWI.) Next year is an entirely new ballgame - I'm running the full marathon in January 2015 (translation: BWI CL), but we'll also be there during our youngest's birthday (translation: BC CL), and our teens will forever lobby for their favorite (translation: Poly CL.) Looks like another split stay in our future, but one at a time, right?

Happy Friday, ladies.

Sheila: Sending you gentle hugs.

Jeanette: Hope you're able to catch some relaxation time in between school and home and work! DL still on the horizon or have I missed some recent changes?! Oh, yes... yes I have. No DL now. DOH!

Janet: I'm torn with whether to have you add our April dates to the list or not. Don't wanna jinx it. (Especially now after just having looked at the credit card statement. )

Dani: Are you definitely booking at the end of the month?

Jen: News on a new ride? Thanks for checking in on me.

Melissa: Did you see the allergy food kiosk at Animal Kingdom when you guys last went? I'm sure you already have. I just noticed it for the first time this past week. (I think they serve Babycakes stuff there.)

Candace: Will you be able to escape having to babysit the boss? BFFs are one thing but bosses? UGH!

Ginny: ACK! Sorry about the frozen pipes. Knockin' on wood here. We were so lucky not to have come home to any craziness like that.

Heather: It's always so nice to see you around! And lovin' the pics as always.

Koh: Sweet ressie! Hope you get the go-ahead on the BFF joining you guys.

Marie: to you guys.

Pixar: We just got back Wednesday from POR -- it's as lovely as always! We didn't have the RR like we did the first time we stayed there but we were in the mansions section. Even in the colder weather, it's still quite convenient to the bus stop and the main building. Our room was well-maintained. The shower/bath was actually in nicer condition than our BC rooms'.

Mommyrosa2: BC for F&W, sounds like a great plan to me!

Thanks for all the compliments on Miss M's pic.

Sorry to any of you that I've missed...

~~==============================~~

This house is a total, certified WRECK! With all the Christmas junk still up and all the stuff from the trip, I might get it cleared out by springtime.

Hi RCers,

Happy Friday!
Our pipes are all unfrozen, good news. There is tons of snow everywhere. The weather will be warmer for the next few days, its all good! I need to get busy and map out our plans for 2014. We want to see the kids, visit WDW, you know, the usual stuff.

Shiela,Sending gentle hugs your way.
I hope your pipes are thawed. Thinking of you.

Janet-I might have a tweak on my fall dates, will let you know. Good think that list of yours isnt binding. Did Kook lend you one of her erasable quills?

Jen-Have fun shopping, hope you get a great deal.

Pas-June is beautiful at WDW. Will stay tuned!

Koh-Hooray for your GF booking!

Marie-Glad to hear your dh is recovering. A possible trip to Bora Bora? Sounds fabulous!

Miss- Loved the photo of Miss M. So cute!

Mommyrosa2-BC in Oct is a great choice. Youll love food and wine.

Have a great weekend all! Hugs!

Exciting plans afoot. Glad the pipes are all sorted out now. Eesh, what a headache. They finally plowed our street last night from all that snow we had over the weekend. Well, isn't that handy now that it's going to warm up?

That's a record for you! BC still?!

Did the kids get off school with the snow or just delayed?


~~============================~~

Who here has visited during the Flower & Garden? I can't keep track with everyone going at all different times of the year. Jen, y'all went last year, right? How was it?

I don't really want to get my hopes up but if we keep this ressie for Miss M's birthday, the sound of the food and drink kiosks have me all excited! Like F&W all over again.

I LOVE the idea of F&G!! I've tried...unsuccessfully! I hope it works out, as Miss M gets older, she won't be able to miss school...we have standardized testing in May

It IS a record..and I am really getting excited. I also make a point to hang out on the BC thread. I LOVE WL and GF...BUT this is a great rate, and it's something different for everyone too!!
No delays..just a mess on the roads

SOOOOOO where are you staying in May????

Jeanette - we all LOVED BC and I loved the BC/YC thread too!! With the little kids though in the heat of the summer, that 5 minute walk to Epcot WS seemed a LOT longer than it was though.

Be careful out there. People lose their freakin' minds with snow on the ground -- even those who see it more often than others and should know better. In the MD/DC/VA area they used to have a volunteer service to offer rides to nurses and doctors during really bad snow so they get into work safely, do they do something like that in NJ?


BC was great to us (as usual). We were kinda dumb about not asking to switch rooms (they put us in a room with no connecting door, as we requested... but it just so happened to be next door to the service elevator). Wasn't that big of a deal with the noise until Miss M got sick and we were in the room during the day so she could sleep. The hubs went down to the front desk and they switched us right away to the third floor -- it was only a few doors down from the same room we previously had on the 4th floor but so much quieter.

The third floor is weird, too. Not weird in a bad way, just not very many rooms on that floor for some reason? At least not compared to the 4th. Maybe that's where all the deluxe rooms are. Even though both rooms overlooked the roof-top (standard view), the view of the lake and pool was quite nice, too.


Can't wait to check out F&G -- head down the end of April but only for a few days. Taking Miss M out for two days so hopefully that's not too bad for her. We remember seeing one of the flower displays they had kept up over by the WS Epcot entrance. It was so pretty -- then POW! they took it down the very next day. (Asked one of the security people and he said it takes so much maintenance and water, they can only keep them up for so long.) Now that I know they've got those food booths, oh yeeeah!

So, we decided to switch it up and go over to the YC for that stay -- need more SAB pool time since we only went once. Totally clueless on what to request since it's a lagoon view room.

...

Here I was just saying two weeks ago, "no more trips" ... that didn't last long.
