    TOTALLY ME TOO!
    (our flights for May went down $80. I was so excited and asked my husband to call and rebook to get the credit. His response? "NO." - What! - His logic "I am not getting an $80 credit for flights which will cause you to want to book another $5000 Disney Vacation in just a few months just so you can use the $80 airline credit." Not a bad point. :p)

    Hi Nicki! :wave2:

    I voted CBR -
    Why? I have been reading your dining reports forever - and I know you and Todd are not HUGE lovers of the Values - (Yes they can be a ton of fun) - but for you guys I think spending a little extra for a Mod would be a wise investment. A little extra space a some amenities would increase the quality of a short stay. :)

    None! Seriously. I'd either rent points or stay at Bonnet Creek.

    If you are going to go park commando, go with the cheapest option. All of the Disney resorts provide clean, comfortable rooms, transportation, and EMH. Save the cash this time to enjoy more things at the parks.

    What are your plans while there?
    Stay at the resort a lot & enjoy it?
    Park early in the morning & stay all day?

    If you won't be in the room much, go with the cheapest room.

    I checked Riverside -- the one time I stayed at POP, I had some of the worst nights sleep in my life (well, when I wasn't sick or sick with worry over something). Lot of noise from outside, and super thin walls with loud neighbors. We absolutely trudged through the parks during the day. For us, anyway, doing commando touring requires a good nights sleep. I know not everyone has that experience, but it was definitely ours, and enough to know it's not for us.

    Though I would choose POFQ over Riverside. That way, if they're sharing buses, you are always the first pickup and dropoff. Less likelihood of boarding a bus with no seats. I always felt so bad for the people at the last bus stop at Riverside.

    $79 for a mod? That must have been a long time ago. I haven't stayed in a mod for about 10 years and I thought $105 was good then.
