Earning My Ears
- Jun 18, 2014
What about a split stay? Start at YC and then end your trip at BWV? We did a split stay once "on accident" due to a smorgasbord of issues but I would totally recommend this. Then you can save some money but also get a taste of what you really want.Please indulge the whining that is about to commence, I'm feeling sorry for myself.
The hotel we stay in is one of the more important parts of any trip we take anywhere, in my opinion. We've been saving and saving to realize my dream of staying at Boardwalk with a boardwalk/water view, we already booked and did the down payment. I had to pay for a few dental procedures, we are paying for Micky's mom to come stay with us for a bit (plane tickets and all) and our vacations savings has gone down some.
So figuring in a 5-10% increase over what we booked at (guessing on what the 2020 rate will actually be), I'm starting to feel as if it's just going to be too much money. I don't want to go on vacation and be cash poor when we get home! And I don't want to feel guilty about spending so much money.
So now we are looking at Yacht Club garden view and it's almost $2000 cheaper for the same amount of time!!! Obviously we don't know the price yet for next year, but most definitely going to be way more affordable than Boardwalk Water View.
The Yacht Club is a great hotel (we've stayed at both Yacht/Beach before) and the rooms are renovated, I know it will be great, it's just I had my heart set on BW.
I know first world problems and all that...
Disney is getting so ridiculously expensive that even saving for 3 years isn't getting us what we want anymore. And there is a lot of talk of no AP discounts next year due to Star Wars and of course I purchased an AP for the first time for next trip.
It's cheaper to go to the Caribbean for a week at this point.
Okay, got that out of my system. It will all work out in the end!!!
