First on Page Two…Woohoo!

Orange Bird's new nest is perfect. Jeanette, you are an untiring Resort Changin' Queen. You've continued, no matter what, to provide a safe haven for the Disney Resort conflicted and confused. We all admire your dedication and your well-honed RC abilities and advice. On behalf of all who have or will change, we thank you.

This might be the perfect time for me to summarize some of my changes

Just returned from a split at YC/CL and WL/CL. The only change I made this trip was from August to June (DD had a conflict and we were able to use the APs one more time) and from BWI to YC. But, there were some other changes after arrival that I didn't make.

I was only able to book a SV CL room. When we checked-in upstairs, we were very unceremoniously upgraded to a tippy-top Lagoon/Pool View. I noticed it on the invoice I had to sign and when I asked if we were upgraded the CM said, "I don't know, what did you book?". I can't figure out why Disney doesn't want to make upgrades more special. I guess the CMs are always the last to know.




Three days later…On to WL-CL for 8 nights. Some of you might recall the epic upgrade of 2011 which someone here, who I can't remember, described as The.Best.Leak.Ever. Come forward if it was you because DH and I still laugh about that description.

A little background: DH had just returned from AFG, this was his first-ever CL stay and we were in 7127 at WL. This has since become our favorite room. Later that evening around 9:30, water started dripping down from the ceiling near the sinks. When we came back for our luggage, the ceiling looked worse after a worker's foot had gone through the ceiling.


I put a bucket underneath and told a CM who then told Randy, the CL Manager. They both agreed that there was no way we could stay in that room and workers wouldn't be done that evening. We were upset because we loved the room's location and we didn't want to lose the room. We even told them the leak wouldn't bother us too much, but they said we had to move. I asked if we could move back to the room the next day. Little did I know we were being moved to a room right next door - the Presidential Suite. That was the change of a lifetime. Randy said he would see us in the morning to let us know where we'd be for the rest of our stay…and he did. He came to our table with new keys and a surprise upgrade to the suite for our entire stay - 11 nights total. Ironically, we were booked at Poly for a split. The afternoon after the morning we checked-in to WL, many hours before the leak, DH said he LOVED WL-CL so much that he didn't want to leave and asked me to cancel Poly and change to WL. I immediately went to Mike who made a call and BAM! We changed to WL for the entire trip.

Fast forward to the trip we just returned from. The evening we checked-in, a CM told us about a guest who was very unhappy in her Deluxe room because it wasn't located on the CL floor. She even demanded that cookies be brought to her room each evening. I half-joked that we'd be happy to switch with her. The next morning, much to my surprise, we got a call to change rooms and the troublesome guest took our room on the 7th and we took her Deluxe room on the 5th. Management were very pleased with the change and were generous in thanking us. So see, it pays to have the changing gene

One change though that I have to lament here is that Randy, the CL manager who ran the place so well and cared so much for all his guests, has just left for a Recreation TA that he requested and it doesn't look like he'll be returning to WL. The place wasn't the same without him

That's it for my recap of recent changes. Now, everyone get to changin' and don't forget to post lots of photos from your August RC Meet.

I am here too!!!! Kook!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hey there buddy! So glad you enjoyed your trip. My trip is scheduled for Aug. 6 - 14. We are scheduled 3 days at Universal first. We were originally scheduled at Hard Rock...but in true Changer fashion, I woke up this morning and changed to RPH. .My DS mentioned our stay at RPH a few years ago and how he liked it better than Portofino. Since I can't seem to book CR for our Disney stay, I wanted to make him happy....and satisfy this urge to change resorts.....

I spent the entire morning contemplating whether or not I could stand our first Poly without a pool.... ummmm that would be a negative. I really wanted a MK monorail resort this time and my DS has been wanting CR for a while. We really aren't lovers of the GF. Also, we've stayed at WL twice and we hear that they, too will be having a refurb. So.....for now at least....we are staying put at AKL..... My DH did ask me what the difference in cost would be for YC....(He is a closet RC member by the way...)

As the tickers turn......

Hi step, my Royal predecessor! It is so funny you mention CR. I actually called my TA to change to BLT this morning but I miscalculated the total so it was a wee bit more than I wanted to spend The Poly I wouldn't advise right now. You all loved YC so it's always a choice right? AKL is really amazing, and as far as I am concerned you can't go wrong with any of the Universal resorts Things may open up in the 30 day window and they will And is tomorrow the 30 day dance????

Kook Disappeared from my multi-quote.... Not to get emotional, but this RC thread is making my day! I love the YC upgrade, but I am aggravated by a less than magical check-in for you. How nice of you to switch rooms at WL. I can't believe the family wanted cookie delivery...However, judging from past interactions with CL CMs they would totally do it IMO. You are WL Royalty through and through Sad about Randy, but it sounds like it's a change he will be happy with. And it's great to see you home!!!!!(here) And you were first on page to on the last thread or my TR...

Life update lol

With last summers renos done, we just did roof of house & garage. Waiting for guy to do gutters. Then a couple if days ago while out I noticed my gas was low, and went to fill up. They had a car wash so since I've been parking on street while garage was being done, it was needing a wash and decided to put it thru! Wrong decision. While putting wheel in stupid rail my front tire blew so had to buy 2 new front tires. When they took wheels off, they noticed my breaks were very worn all 4 wheels, ugh. I knew they were feeling rough. But geez, didn't need this just before my Florida trip!!! I think I should name my trip Staying at The Grand and eatting dirt . Bleck!!

That is THE worst...could you drop CL and use TA rate for whole stay? That will definitely save some dinero. Glad you found your way over

Playing hooky here on the nifty new thread. I just finished uploading many photos to Photobucket. I am so behind on all my threads - my apologies. I have photos to post, logs to update, updates to post. I did update my Resort thread sticky with the new URL for this very helpful thread. This is the one thread I'm amazingly not behind on. Oh, and poor Heather, I haven't even gotten to her wonderful TR. I promised her I would this weekend. I can't wait to peruse it and re-live part of my trip.

As the tickers turn......

Nope, no rehab in August at WL. The pool is the only rehab and that won't start until after Labor Day. Not a fan of the lack of transportation options at AKL and we toured Poly and frankly, I think the place should be closed. It's one big construction site from the entrance to the beach and all points in between. I have photos I will try to post soon if you'd like. My vote is for CR, WL or YC. WL is the least $ and from CR/YC you can walk to parks so that's a plus in my RC book. Keep us posted and aren't you glad school is finally out?!

It's been so long since I read an update from you that last I remember, Sophia hadn't been to WDW yet. What were her favorite things to do and where did you stay? Is she excited to go back?

Get emotional - we'll wipe the tears. DH already told Randy before he left that CL won't be the same without him and that he would be reluctant to return - ouch! I haven't even posted any of this yet to the WL thread, but since this is the RC thread, I can tell all of you that after our upcoming Christmas trip, which was booked as a special "thank-you" bounceback of sorts by the GSO, DH plans to RC to CR/BLV if Randy isn't managing the OFC. Stay tuned.

Sorry about Randy, I felt the same when Ranger Stan left WL.
Ranger Stan actually passed away. We have been blessed with some upgrades over the years. We've stayed at WL since 1997 and they have been the most generous and consistent with upgrades. Room Assignors there tell me that they always upgrade guests when the can. Both YC stays we've been upgraded to LV which I'm actually not a big fan of due to the SAB noise, but Crescent Lake in the background was lovely. Are you still going to FLL?

While putting wheel in stupid rail my front tire blew so had to buy 2 new front tires. When they took wheels off, they noticed my breaks were very worn all 4 wheels, ugh. I knew they were feeling rough. But geez, didn't need this just before my Florida trip!!! I think I should name my trip Staying at The Grand and eatting dirt . Bleck!!
Noooo! Well, you've gotten all the bad stuff out of the way. The unexpected tire blowout was a blessing in disguise because it forced you to get those brakes up to speed for your trip. You deserve some pixie dust on your trip

Hello all!
Found our new home! Can't chat now but will catch up tomorrow -- just wanted to make sure I could find my way home. Breadcrumbs!

Been running around all weekend but tomorrow is a quick trip to Six Flags so that my brand new one year old can splash around and soak up some attention!

to all!
