Would you switch?

From CSR to ASSp, if it saved you a couple hundred dollars? I am kind of thinking of switching to save the $ even though DH does not want me too lol I am always the more frugal one and I saw the pictures of ASSp and thought our kids would love it! They are still young enough to enjoy being immersed in Disney and the arcade looked fun also. My only concerns with CSR is the size, so all the bus stops and the food court. We don't really care for all the amenities as we will only use the pool and room at the resort and obviously food court as well. I was looking at POP at one point but the theming at ASSp is more appealing to me. I should mention that we are already booked and paid off and due to be at WDW on 8/29. lol Would it even be worth it to change or should I just leave as is?? TIA!!

If you are within your 45 day window....there will be a fee to switch resorts especially since it is a downgrade.

Last year we stayed at AoA in a LM room because that is where DD wanted to stay. It would have been cheaper to stay at DH's choice POR. He will never let me forget it.

If your husband is against changing you should most likely respect his feelings.

Depends on how many days but for a couple hundred dollars for the most part, no way I would switch. I'm with your DH.

Yup, and the savings would be slim at that point, I'd say stay put

The walk is really not that bad. Worst case scenario, even in the ranchos, 6-7 minutes to go to the food court/lobby, 1-3 minutes to go everywhere else. You can refill your reffilable mugs at the Dig Site (principal pool).

CSR is absolutely awesome. I would be very surprised (even shocked) if you liked ASSports more...

You guys are all absolutely right! I honestly think because our trip is rapidly approaching I am second guessing EVERYTHING! lol Plus I do love the look of CSR I was just wondering what peoples opinions of ASSp were and if it would be worth it but I saw a video tour of the rooms there and wow they look so much smaller! Heres to hoping CSR is awesome and we have good bus service Thanks everyone for helping me to stay sane... even if its just a little bit!!
