I'm all about a view...while technically you don't spend excessive amounts of time on a balcony, I just can't help myself. Love waking up to the MK or Bay Lake or animals...take your pick

I didn't help, did I??

Then decided well Boardwalk villas are available maybe it would be better booking there to be closer to two parks. We have never done BWV so I decided well maybe going where we have stayed before is a better idea because we know where everything is, we know how long it takes to get to each park generally and we liked it, we like the food there. I like the idea of Jambo house where everything is pretty close (food court bus stop, shops, etc) especially since I am pregnant when I go back to the resort I just want to be back quickly so I can put my feet up. However, now I am looking at the DVC site and Wilderness Lodge is available during our week.... We have never stayed there but we go pretty much every trip for some kind of meal because we like the food and love the resort. We also love all the restaurants on the monorail line and even staying at AKV we are planning on meals like Ohana, Chef Mickey's, the Wave, Kona. What would you do? I have waitlisted BLT but I am realistic too because I have waitlisted BLT before and it never came through, so I know the chances are not good with that. It could be because I am pregnant I am more undecided but I can not choose.. Anyone done all of these and could give me advice on what you would choose? Boardwalk the only room type available is One bedroom Garden/Pool View so I feel like if it was Boardwalk view it would be an easier decision but maybe not I am not sure lol.
Wish I could be of assistance, but we've never done a villa....booked them, but rebooked a room instead LOVE AKL, WL and CR, though...all great resorts. My only drawback with the AKL is the distance from all the parks.

Hope all goes well with your pregnancy!

Happy Planning!

I am thinking for our arrival night perhaps

DD put in her two cents yesterday though without realizing it...she was pouting and all sad and sulky. When I asked her what was wrong, she said she wanted to go to Disney World. Lol.

DH is sick right now, so the subject hasn't been discussed yet. Maybe this week??
Hope DH feels better soon. Sorry BFF can't go, for the GF rate I would do onsite. I got that call from Hilton as well...that's a better deal for a SeaWorld trip IMHO...

Still BC...BUT...changed stuff around....Beach before Beach Club, AND I added CL back on. I got a small scholarship for school for my GPA, so as a reward....CONCIERGE

We've honestly never had a noise issue at the values...only CBR during cheer nationals If you get Standard, you'll be further from pool and food court so that should be quieter

And congrats on your pregnancy. Honestly, if you have more plans in the MK area...do VWL. There's the boat right to CR and VOILA you are on the monorail! However, if you have lots of Epcot plans BW would be super convenient to DHS and Epcot! And AKV are beautiful, but you lose the convenience.....so if more of your time is MK/MK resort centered VWL! If not BWV! The GV/Pool view are peaceful and beautiful....BTW WDWKOOK does a great job with both resort threads...Happy planning!!

HELLO ALL RCers!

I had quoted and replied to a tons of the goings on I missed while away these last few days and (of course) lost it all! So, I'll try to summarize:

to those dealing with loss and illness... it's always hard but this time of year especially

for all the crazy weather: DD went back to school one day after New Year's then had the Friday off and a delayed start the following Monday. I just wish it would snow or not - Maryland is not good at handling 'kind of snowy'.

for some of the RCs I have seen and even those just thinking!!! I also vote split-stay if you can do it! We did it last trip and it was great - experienced POR - Royal Room and YC! Loved them both for different reasons!

pixarmom - We stayed at the first mansion (or last depending which way you go) at POR and 'far' seemed relative. We were closer to the main building than my in-laws who were in AB but they were closer to the pool. That said, it was a matter of minutes to walk to/across the bridge to the main area and grab a snack or go for a swim. We filled our mugs 3 times a day so it wasn't inconvenient at all. Also, the busses went both clock and counterclockwise with no rhyme or reason. We actually just walked to the depot at the main building so we could grab a snack and a refill on the way.

If it helps, DH said he felt like it was quicker to walk from our room to the main lobby at POR than it was to walk from our room to SAB at YC (we were really close to the Swolphin side of YC facing the quiet pool). It may have felt quicker because the scenery was so neat to look at (DD loved walking over the river) but that's from him!

------------------------------------------------------------

Tomorrow is surgery day! (since I can't dance for awhile, he can)
I have spent the last 2 weeks running around trying to get all my ducks in line (surgery is 80 miles away around the DC Beltway so getting to/from the hospital is a joy). Also, DH has been working overdrive so he can take max time off - he's military and on their schedule so he tried to get his stuff ahead so they won't bug him. I know he'll probably end up doing a couple half-days next week but that's better than the 10-12 they like to steal him for.

My little teeny Peanut is 6 months old! Where did the time go??? She is absolutely in love with Pete from MMC (going for the bad guys already) and loves watching her older sister dance to the music from Frozen (which I have seen three times now).

I promise to be back in the loop Thursday (I figure tomorrow will be spent in la-la land) (hopefully!)!!! So far, still at WL though I have changed room types to SV and then back to WV-bunk. Trying to convince DH we need CL but it's been a hard sell.


LOTS of and to everyone!!!!

Dimndgal-Sending you lots of get well wishes after your surgery.

Pas and Pixarmom- We haven't seen Fantasmic, either. I think I need to make time for that this fall.

MM-Congrats on your stock!

Hope everyone has a good Tues.
Tomorrow is American Idol night! It's that time again!

You managed to get him on Everest; that's a HUGE step. No way I could even talk Miss M into it, though she does love listening to the screams from Flametree BBQ.

If you don't see a boat there or coming, and the line is huge on the dock, it's normally quicker to walk. We were able to beat the boat all but once because of how they drop off. The boats are nice though, either way you can't go wrong.

Every time you mention AKL, I think about your spectacular review. Then I get to thinking about how much we enjoyed it there...

If it weren't for the dang Flower & Garden with the added food and libations, we'd probably be staying there at AKL.

Hmm, it'll be beach, 2 nights somewhere then BC CL? I'd opt for Universal (even though I've never been, LOL!) to keep the hubby happy.

Whatever y'all decide, it'll be great.

I second Janet's idea about Universal...it's all about keeping DH happy, isn't it? :-)

Hmmm...now how to bring up a $3000 quick trip to Disney instead of the budget saving long weekend trips to Chicago and St. Louis...?

Oh, and Jeanette - I wouldn't stay offsite like that! :-) not when I can stay at the grand!! ;-)

Hmmm...I would say to try BWV! It is a fantastic location that cannot be beat! We loved it over there.

Sigh, really those budget saving "small" trips usually don't turn out to be so budget friendly. At least that is what I have found. Disney usually ends up cheaper for us! LOL

I just noticed the DCL 3 night on Mar 6 has its discounted rates out...and asked DH is we could do 2 nights POR, 3 night cruise, and then 3 nights at POR again. And wait for it....he said to price it out!!

Wasn't expecting that one....stay tuned!!

That includes using all of our United miles, but...it also means adding a night - 5 days/4 nights!!

Just looking at food costs now and trying to hit some of the favorite character meals, but also less expensive TS and QS meals...thinking with a late breakfast ADR, we could get by with 2 meals a day...? But I can't get rid of CP or CM or a princess meal (thinking Akershus over CRT)...

I was sitting there wondering what we should do for Miss M's birthday dinner: no reservations for BoG, plans out the window for ordering another custom MK cake (dang, that was TASTY!), Yachtsman was available, Via Napoli available. Hrm, what to do... the wheels started turning.

Then my husband, voice of reason, up and says, "You know? She'd be just as happy with dinner at Beaches and Cream. If you gave her the choice between Yachtsman, Beaches and Cream or Via Napoli, that's what she'd pick." He's right.
