    Especially when one of those adorable Red River Hogs graces me with its presence. I watch until it leaves, can't stop :)

    The lowest I've been was fourth floor and while wonderful I would have liked to be a little closer. I just can't tear myself away! Made us late to Jiko because I couldn't stop watching one of those hogs :)

    Well, and depending on the size of the frig in the room, we may be able to keep a bottle of wine in it. Then at night the hubby and I can drink a glass of Moscato. We'll be driving, so we can bring our own.

    We are pretty sure we are going back to AKL in June. We are definitely going June 23-27, but the big debate is whether to try BC. We have gone back and furth. We really want to try BC but we love AKL so much that we don't know whether we want to change resorts. We have stayed at WL, CR, POLY, POR, POFQ, AKL, Kidani, so it is not as if we have never stayed anywhere else, but we just love AKL. Decisions, decisions. :confused3.

    tough decision... BC is my home resort, so I love it, but my new love is AKV, for us it comes down to what we are doing... If it is EPCOT intensive we tend to stay BC, but if we are looking to relax and enjoy you can't beat AKV...

    The kids want to try BC for Stormaway bay, but I just can't stand leaving Boma and Jiko which I love to eat at each trip. Cape May Cafe is just not the same for us and although we like Yachtmans, Jiko is so relaxing and intimate feeling. Ugh! I will have to go back to my pros and cons list, but now that June park hours have been released, it may get easier since I can now plan out my days better.

    It is all about the planning and convenience! Good luck and let us know what you decide, and why? It might help others...

    Can anybody help with this? I think Allears might have some pictures.

    Congrats on your trip!

    I would search the end of AKL Lite 6 I think we posted several hundred pictures...
    I know I posted a 1 br, but I will look again.

    Stormaway Bay is the reason my DH refuses to ever stay at the BC. The clown slide scares him.

    The clown slide is at the Boardwalk. Your DH should be fine with the Beach Club, Stormalong Bay has a pirate ship slide and a beach water area.

    Thanks for the pictures Brandi. One if these days I'm going to have to try bigger than a studio. That looks so beautiful and spacious.

    OOOO thanks so much for the 1 BR pics! Is the only entrance to the bathroom in the master? Not a problem for us, just curious.

    For the person considering BC - we did our 1st 2 stays at BC in March of this year (BCV studio & BC CL). My kids LOVED Stormalong Bay, they wanted to stay there all day long. Even DS15 enjoyed the pool activities & games. So just be aware you might lose some park time if you stay there!

    I LOVED the close proximity to Epcot. I love to end each day there, getting a snack in WS as I watch Illuminations. To be able to sneak out the IG & be in our room in under 5 min was priceless. I even sent DS15 over to WS to grab fish & chips for me one day for lunch while I was lounging at the pool. It was like having my own personal pool boy!!!

    AKL is my favorite but I'd stay at BC again too.

    Sweet. I always get the two confused. Maybe on the next trip I can convince him to stay at the Beach Club then.
