Happy weekend KOOK, CHRISTINE, MISS, JENNYJINK, DETTIGG and rest of RCers!

I am worried about sjs314... CT big snow zone and no posting. Hope she didn't lose power again.
MAGIC Linda your so sweet to think of me I just told Janet we got 22" now they upped it to 24" looks like 30 around here. I have managed to shovel about 4 feet but Bella still will not go inside or out for me almost 36 hours so I am very worried about her. I can only shovel a little before my COPD gives me hell. Hopeing the complex comes soon to dig me out but I doubt it streets not even plowed yet

And I like that too many choices...I'm not insanely obsessed or anything...just too many choices. Got it!

Thanks!
I AM obsessed Glad to have you join us!! WL aren't bigger than BC from what I've read. There is a Deluxe room (sleeps 6) but that's big bucks and at best only gives 5% discounts...if that...I did a trip with DH in a wheelchair, and it was so nice to walk to Epcot or the boat to DHS you can roll right on Now we are a family of 7 so we get 2 rooms Between all of us...we can help answer questions on just about any resort!!!

So I may be a bit of a resort changer. I have my August trip booked, at YC. Then decided to come in 2 days earlier and booked the BB offer for those 2 days at FQ. Now decided to surprise daughter and booked the 2 nights for GF. It's her dream resort. I'm looking forward to it too. I think we will just stay around the resort, with mornings in MK and just soak it all up. We have another 12 days at YC so will have lots of park time.

A few BW BC questions

Just curious. For anyone who had stayed at the Boardwalk and BC which did you prefer and why?

Also, how small is the daybed at BW? In the description it's listed as a junior bed which is part of why we booked BC.

And do all the rooms at BW have full balconies? I read somewhere here that they do, but the description on Disney's site says "some" rooms have balconies.

TIA!

I've stayed in the villas at both. As silly as it sounds the main reason I prefer BCV is it is much easier to use the refillable mugs and grab something quick to eat in the morning.

See now from reading descriptions of where you can get food and refills I was thinking the opposite. And that is funny you would pick over that. Everyone has their thing I guess. This will be our first trip using the mugs so we'll see how much I like them.

Have you considered yacht club ?? Most have balconies there..me I like the decor more at bwi..but I like the pool at bc better. The daybed is probably like poly/gf twin size. My 2 boys actually shared at gf 10 and 2 at the time I think

At BWI they have the daybed where the back pulls down and makes a twin sized bed (like at the monorail resorts). At BC/YC I have gotten rooms with no daybed, the pull down daybed, and daybed that is basically a couch that you can sleep on if you pull off the back cushions and is much smaller then the other kind.

I agree with GG that snacks/mug refills are much easier at BC.

Don't know much about the balconies at BWI but I remember being on the Boardwalk and looking up. The rooms over the Boardwalk Bakery have standing room only balconies.

As pas said, YC will get you a full balcony.

Hi All, glad everyone survived the shovel out.

So just off phone with BFF (our daughters are BFF's too) she owns at AKL and is going 2/24-3/1 we are booked 2/25 pop then 2/25-3/5 YC CL
Of course kids already asking if they can go to parks together and swim together. So this is making me consider split AKL/YC

Has anyone done this split?

Just not into early morning having to go out on the Boardwalk .... feel like I have to be totally presentable for the world but for some reason if I just have to run downstairs to the gift shop area I don't feel I have to be as pulled together. Crazy .... right?

Just thought I would pop in before starting my homework and say hello. Since my online class was down on Friday, I have to do school work today.

Let's start the week off with a little change...

to our newest Resort Changers! I hope everyone affected by Nemo is doing alright.

I got way behind DISing this weekend, but managed to find time to make a change. I am still holding on to FWC, just a little less since I added AKL CL and an extra night up front. I would have done this in reverse with CL at the end, but the military 40% off is blacked out after 3/25. So the first 3 nights are AKL CL (40%) and the final 5 are FWC (20% - my lowest discount ever, but better than nothing). And, I discovered that FWC guests can use Sturdy Branches at WL, so I'm a happy camper!

In my best Ahnold voice - I'll be back...
