    I have tried and tried to stay at POR. It is such a great price and the reort look beautiful! :thumbsup2 However, I always get the itch to switch and upgrade back to a Deluxe. I love being on the monorail or over on the Epcot side. The convenience is just unbeatable. Kuddos to you if you can make it happen! Saving money is never a bad thing. :thumbsup2

    2 parties. :dance3: Not insane. Awesome. Even moreso if it helps to get that Holiday trip in. I'm thinking we will be needing to get that one last hurrah out of our APs which exprire 1/4/14 so maybe we can be resort buddies again. :goodvibes

    :lmao: Are you tired? I thought you were a runner. :duck:

    Yes I bought them in June at the 2011 prices and upgraded them in September. It was a spur of the moment purchase when I saw the price increases.:scared: which of course led to a spur of the moment trip in September. I was originally planning on waiting to May of 2013 to buy Ap's again. If I would have waited I think I would have been facing two price increase before we returned. Mousesavers is reporting a ticket price increase in April.

    Jen Disney is supposedly going to raise prices in April this year. The cost of your Ap's are unfortunately going to go up before your trip. I don't know if it would be worth waiting until the price increase to buy your tickets from UT. I think they may discount them more when the new ticket prices come out. I really don't know you might want to ask them. You might be better just buying Ap's if its a huge increase. I think you may get a 2 day warning on the the prices. :confused3

    Yeah I forgot all about that when we were helping Jen. UT is also reporting a price rise coming sooner than normal. They don't give a date, but mousesavers has been saying April. Mousesavers has always been accurate in the past.

    Chiming in on the UT tix... used them once and since I ordered them at the last minute ... story of my life...:rolleyes1 we went and picked them up... really easy, they are located near Universal, and since we also including Universal for the vacation is was super easy!

    Me! Me! (and Sam for sure:))

    Wookie, GREAT NEWS!! Happy that you added that extra day! :cool1:

    :rotfl2:

    Miss, I'm with you about the bed...would feel the same way with a young'n like Miss M. :goodvibes

    Frugal has its time.... birthdays and and a big one at that... not the time for pinching pennies....:flower3:

    We love the MK area as well. :goodvibes

    Go for TWO! :banana: And let me know if you come up with some great (and no fuss) Halloween costumes!

    Hmmm....maybe to save all the hassle, I will just order then off the website. I had to disappear for a bit to rush outside and try and shovel before DH got home!! Have to make it look like I did something today!!!;)

    If we were planning on PH for both trips, this 5 day and Nov. 5 day, the AP Still saves us money. (almost $300) And I think the possibility of another trip is very likely!

    We actually intend to spend 1 day at MK, 1 ak, 1 HS then 2 at Epcot this year and 1 day resort/dtd. So epcot area would be best. We loved WL but can't stay there now due to 2 yo becoming 3 unless we want to pay for cl and we don't.

    Thanks!! I can't wait to stay at the BC. Even JM is super excited about the stay. At first when I showed him the resort he got sad, and then he goes, "wait, is this the one with the lazy river attached to the huge pool?" When I said yes, he literally went " woo hoo!!"

    It's very hard to say if buying through UT will save you money with the price increase coming. It did for me even with the price increase. It was even cheaper than the renewal price, but like I said before I bought the non-exp that were discounted 85.00 a ticket. I think I just got really lucky. The first time we bought AP's I just bought the vouchers through WDW. The nice thing about having the vouchers is you can access the AP site if you want to make changes.:laughing: It might be less of a hassle for you.

    I cancelled my reservation on Tuesday morning the money is back on my cc tonight...all except the 200.00 deposit, and I expect that on Monday. I don't know how many payments you made, but they will refund it one payment at a time. Hopefully it will all be back in your account within a week.

    Why not try one of the Epcot resorts. They are a little easier on the pocket book. Poly was our favorite, but as our kids get older 8 and 10 now we prefer the Epcot area. Your kids are still very young, but I think they would enjoy the pools and the entertainment on the BW. It's a lot easier to keep your eyes on your kids at the BW pool, but BC/YC has the nice sand bar that kids love. Your definitely not the only one that only stays deluxe. I made it 1 hour at Pofq before switching to AKL. I do like CSR it has a more deluxe feel to me, and it has the amenities of a deluxe.

    Well...here is my update. DH and I have talked my 'idea' over, and he thinks the kids will be too pooped for us to think about park hopping. And he reminded me the whole reason for us upgrading from POR to BC was so that we could spend time there enjoying the pool, and now CL too. I do see his point.

    And he also reminded me that we want to do DL next year, and California, maybe Alaska cruise...who knows??

    So, we may wait and decide when we are there. I know there is a bit more of a savings on the room if we do it now though. I really do appreciate all of your help today, it was a lot of fun going back and forth with you all. Much love....:grouphug:

    It is always fun to play- especially on a snowy day. I guess we always have park hopped because we go to one in the am, stay until lunch, go back to the resort and hang out -nap, swim- and the go to a different park after dinner. I guess that's just us :). Have a great night!

    Sounds amazing, maybe when our girls are a little bit older they can handle it better. (i.e. no meltdowns when tired!:headache:) :)

    I bet if we looked back at many of my posts here I am always coming up with something that sounds 'great'!!! But then I come back with my anti-climatic ending...booo!!!

    This is exactly what we do!!! We love hoppers!!!

    Well, we are buried up to over my knees....I'm only 5'3" so that doesn't take much :lmao: but, we have very close to, if not over 2 feet, and it's still coming down....:rolleyes:

    Glad we are all home, and warm and just watching it come down. We're going to make a big breakfast and enjoy the lazy day that has been forced upon us! :woohoo:

    Oh, for those in the income tax return watch....I had filed on 2/4. The IRS has approved my return and it will be deposited into my account on 2/13. Very quick turnaround. Haven't decided what I am doing with it yet, thinking of booking my 2014 trip.....which by the way....has evolved....back into a Disney trip (sort of). Now we are thinking of Feb 4 night Disney cruise, followed by 4-5 nights at Poly. :cloud9:
