We've been thinking about taking a trip in August with 2 adults, 2 kids. We want to stay at either the Poly, YC, BC, BWI or Contemporary. I've been crunching the numbers and weighing the pros and cons of going earlier in the month and getting the discount vs going later and hoping for free dining. I think we'll come out ahead financially by going the second week of August. Looks like we'd save more than the $100 per night it would cost us for the dining plan. Has anyone else done the math for this? Also, we've been the last week of August before and we're prepared for the heat and humidity but it wasn't very crowded. I'd love to hear opinions from those of you that have traveled at both times. I've also considered the Dolphin because of the great prices but I'm not sure about the travel time to the parks. Especially MK since we'll be there and Epcot the most. We stayed at AKL last time and although we loved the resort, we did not like the time spent traveling and waiting for buses. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!!!
