Posting this here, as well as the resort board since it's budget related! Okay, I feel like I might as well join the resort changers just for posting this! Okay, here's the deal. A while back I "forced"(dh doesn't talk Disney much, even though he likes it and all) dh to tell me which resort he would like to stay at if given a choice. He finally said he guessed it would be CR. I was asking because I was planning a possible birthday trip later! Okay, fast forward a few months..I got the year long PIN code.. 20% off values/30%off mods/40% off deluxes. I immediately called and was told that only tower~theme park view was available. Okay..so I asked the price..$5100 for 2 adults and 3 kids(including 7day hoppers and the regular DDP based on 4 adults(two kids are over 9yrs.) and 1 child. Okay, well that sounded pretty darn good compared to prices I had seen in the past! Of course dh says it's only a good deal if you are willing to pay that much! Fast forward again..dh and I are having a conversation..something like me saying..well that would only save about $1,000. He says something back like..well $1,000 must not seem like much to you anymore or something, but it seems like alot to me! Then, he says he can't see why we don't just stay at Windsor Hills like usual, and that since I had "built up" onsite so much that he hoped I would end up seeing it probably wasn't all it was made out to be!! Okay...soo...the facts are..I know that obviously money is the only reason why he cares where we stay. He does have a bit of a hard time letting go of money. BUT, he does REALLY enjoy our Disney vacations!! Really!! It is just hard for him to rationalize spending that money and then in a week it's over! So..I called and checked last night and found out that our cheapest onsite option will actually be about the same(after running numbers for food and all) as staying offsite at the condo I was quoted $3135 at POR with the QS plan/7day base tickets. Also, IF (not betting on it though) FD was offered(and we switched from the current PIN offer) the trip would be only around $2,500(cheaper than condo). AsMu f.s. with QS is about $600 more. Also, I'm not into trying for connecting rooms at a value for fear of not getting them. So, POR is our best value. We would have our own car, so transporation wouldn't be a biggie. I actually had POR booked last year and stressed about it possibly being too crowded in our room and changed to offsite! I just don't know how painful it will be too take that MK view wallpaper off of my computer! Dh does not get involved with booking, etc., he tells me to just do what I think is best..which makes things VERY difficult! So, all things considered......what would you do????? Edited to say..I guess I left out an option of still trying to get a wing room(none available) at CR/dropping the hoppers/ and going to QS dining That would obviously make a big difference as well.
