Cool Why can't I just be satisfied?

OMG I just need to stop... I am booked at the BWV for Feburary and I am LUCKY to have gotten a studio for the week. We wanted the BC which was not available We stayed at BWI two years ago and we loved it. I really wanted to try something different but DH wanted something close to Epcot if we could get it. Now, I longingly look at the AKL and want to stay there. I could do a split stay. Am I crazy for considering it? I don't know what my problem is....why is this just so hard????

I always have internal struggles once we book somewhere. Every hotel has something unique that tears at me over the one we have chosen. I have told myself no changes this time... We stay with what's picked !! It's do hard bc Disney math starts coming into play and it gets crazy!!
We have a split stay between BC and AKL CL for 8 and 3 and then 5 at a condo. But believe me that the punt if time I sit ther torn between BC and WL is embarassing!

Same thing here----I booked Wilderness Lodge---totally happy with the choice. Then I get the letter stating the pool will be under construction. Changed to the Contemporary. Decided the Contemporary is to stark for me and the Garden Wing is too far from the transportation options for my friend so I switched to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Now I am thinking Boardwalk might have been a better choice. I just need to stop as well. We leave in 70 days!!!! I can not keep making changes. I do this with ADR's as well. Disney reservations must hate me. I really should send them a gift.

Since your husband wants to be close to Epcot, I'd stick with where you are.

Now quit looking at other resorts!

I have done the same thing by the way. And I did do a split stay. I really like staying at one resort only I discovered. Packing up and moving resorts annoyed me.

Of all your choices, BWV is my first choice. And it suits your DH's need to be near Epcot. Stick with it!

I would stay with the BWV. AKL is beautiful, but a little out of the way IMO. You can't beat the location and the atmosphere. Have a great trip!

We are doing a split stay with AKL and the Boardwalk in September (by the way....we didn't like the Villas at the BC). I say go for it!

I suggest you stick with your current reservation but make a dining reservation or 2 over at AKL.

AK would be great, you know... waking up to monkeys in your kitchen raiding your cereal and all. BUT, that spectacle, honestly does not trump the fantastic location BW affords you. I would definitely stick with BW.

We do split stays all the time ... It's the only way we're going to be able to stay at all of them

We are doing 8 nights at AKL next April in a studio! We did BWV in a studio this past April. For us we wouldnt want to pack up and move 1/2 way through, but for some they love that! We love AKL and the pool area, and Mara quick serve.

I'd say go for it. We love split stays .... it's like multiple vacations all in one

You need to decide how you feel about packing in the middle of your trip. I've done it and hated it, but others don't mind at all.

AKL is awesome. I strongly recommend the split stay.
