Yes, I have. DH and DS quite like it there. And we all love the proximity to Epcot.

I know there are different viewpoints here and that everyone has their own favourite resorts...but we really love StormAlong Bay. We found it was great to head out early and then back to SAB for an afternoon swim before heading out again for the evening.

For me, the only thing wrong with the BCV is that most of the rooms don't really have a good view.

Beach Club is one resort I've always wanted to stay at. Ever since my first visit to WDW it's really appealed to me. Out of our price range though I'm afraid

I've always wanted to stay here too. The pricing is expensive but I think if I ever go back I have to give myself at least a couple of days at BC, it looks so pretty.

Congrats on another trip to plan.

DVC rental. And I'm renting off a Dis Friend; which was one reason why I was happy to go back here.

I haven't started looking at flights yet. Still need to work out my departure date and arrival home date before I can do that.

I'm the other way around, I'll let the sale prices determine which days I'll fly in and out.

That's what I am trying to get my head around!! I think I have to move our holiday around by a week to fit in with DD's dancing competitions, which means I will have fixed travel dates. I am used to the flexibility of letting cheaper fares determine when we travel.

I'm envious for two reasons

1) I'm restricted to traveling in and around school holidays when sales are rare to non-existent.
2) I admire the patience of you and everyone else on here to sit and wait for the sales to be released. When it comes to buying most things in my life I'm really good at resisting temptation and either saying 'No' or waiting for a special. But when it comes to travel, it's like I have this crazy alter-ego living inside of me who just can't wait to start booking things.

Same here. If money wasn't an issue, the Beach Club would be my top choice. Mainly because I'd love to be able to walk into the World Showcase for dinner each night.

I'm waiting for the sales. But we are kinda stuck with the dates because of the wedding. We at taking the kids out of school for two weeks, which makes me want to cry - thinking of the fees we still have to pay!!! This is an unexpected, budget trip so we are saving money wherever we can.

Ditto ditto. In my dream, we could stay in a Two-bedroom at BCV with a Disney dining plan and then go into EPCOT to dine at a different restaurant each night. Oh yes, and in that dream, I could travel in October again so that we could swim at Stormalong Bay instead of being limited to going in the December/January school holidays (as we'd want to be away from NZ for over two weeks). However, sadly though, I fairly positive that it will always remain a dream and not reality.....
