I normally cringe at these posts, but now here I am looking for help. Thinking of a June trip for myself & DD9. This will be our 4th trip in 5 years but first time without DH & DS. As a family we have stayed at ASMU, CBR & CSR (in that order.) I'm thinking value for this trip since it's just the two of us & we don't really need the extra space + double beds are fine. I think a value fits better in the budget. DH thinks we should spend a little extra ($200-300 more) for a moderate. Even though he isn't going, he thinks we would be happier with the bus situation (he has bad memories of crowded buses from ASMU!) as well as the over crowded pools from ASMU. My problem is, if we go moderate, I would like to try POR & it's $400 more than any value. (POFQ would be nice too, but it's $500 more & I can't justify that.) We loved CBR & CSR but I like the idea of trying somewhere new. Plus, our weeks at those were so wonderful, I'm afraid if we return & it doesn't meet those memories, I'll be let down. Sounds silly, I know, but I want to keep those great memories & not have my experiences there tainted by a return trip that doesn't duplicate what I remember. I've also looked into the Swan (no availability at the Dolphin for our dates.) It would be about $400 more when you add in the Mears shuttle to/from the airport & the nightly hotel fee. Not doing a dining plan so that isn't an issue. SO--I guess my question is--tell me why we should or shouldn't spend the extra to stay at a moderate/Swan & especially if we should really spend the extra to stay at POR or the Swan. It would take A LOT of convincing to go that route as I can think of a lot of other things to spend the extra $400 on...but I'm open to ideas & friendly discussion! Thanks so much!
