We have walked up at 8am in August and been seated straight away.

I have just learned that I will be in Orlando in February for a conference for work. DH has decided to join me. He is taking vacation and will visit "The Dark Side" on the days I am working.
It is late to be booking rooms, so the closest we could get to the Convention Center (where I need to be every day) was the Courtyard in Lake Buena Vista. It is going to be torture to be so close and not spend time in the parks. But we will be down and buying AP's in October, so it is just not in the budget for passes for February. I did book ADR's for dinner at Ragland Road, Crossroads at House of Blues and the Turf Club at SSR for 3 of our nights there.
I will have to get my fix at DTD. Interestingly, when we visit for F & W we often don't spend much time in DTD. So this is an opportunity to experience something different.
Maybe not Disney, but it is Florida in February and that sound pretty darned good to me!

Other than that, I'm thinking about requesting a room over near the Epcot side, for a few reasons. We will be spending most of our park days at Epcot, and my parents are spending a few days at BWI, so it will be a slightly shorter walk for us to meet up with them.

I know the trade off is a longer walk to SAB, the lobby, and transportation, but I think the Epcot-focus outweighs that.

Am I missing any key detail to help me make a more informed choice?
Sounds like you have thought through what is important for you.

I'm glad to hear that the chef seemed responsive to your needs. I will be interested in hearing how the concierge and resort accommodate your dietary restrictions when you get back.

How is the walk to SAB? To the DHS boat? To BW? I just want to know as much as possible!
We love being able to walk to EPCOT. We also love the relaxed feel of the Beach Club. The area can't be beat. There are so many dining options in the area between the hotels - BC, YC, BW, Swan and Dolphin and EPCOT. The walk to SAB is 5 - 10 minutes depending on where you are located in the villas. The walk to the DHS boat is a few minutes past SAB. Boardwalk is a 10 minute walk. You have to stop by and chat with Teena (she greets guests in the lobby as they arrive). Enjoy your stay!!!

The quiet of the last few weeks lulled me into thinking I could just stroll over to this new thread at my leisure, but.... I turned my back for a second and we are already on page 5.

Thanks for all your work Dee, and congrats on 10,000 posts (that's a crazy high amount!)

Nanette - I have no idea how you put up with both NinjaMom and Buzzy in one trip.

Thank you! I'm looking forward to meeting Teena from all that I have read on this board. She sounds lovely!

Sorry about that! I appreciate the reminder.

I have you on my handwritten list from the last thread, but never added you or bcbmommy.

Correcting that now.
