I’m at the 43-day mark from my February trip, so I’m 12 days away from no more changes to my resort stay (I don’t like to make changes after the email has been sent).
I’ve made so many changes on this one… It’s kind of ridiculous at this point. Just me, solo adult.
Currently: Kidani Standard View Studio
Pros: I LOVE Animal Kingdom and would love to just be able to explore the Lodges and grounds on down-time.
Cons: The food situation. Only having Sanaa - and the gluten-free options there being limited - is tough. (I’m pretty sure pool bars can’t do gluten-free foods/)
Possible other locations in order from lowest to highest prices: (yes, SSR is right in there price-wise, but I can stay at a golf condo complex at pretty much any beach, and the horse theme doesn’t do it for me) - these are all do-able financially:
Caribbean Beach King (with this one I could add on Memory Maker)
Pros: CBR has a special place in my heart; King room almost guarantees a corner; could walk over to Riviera for more food options
Cons: Skyliner - yes, this is a con for me as I prefer to enter Epcot by the main entrance. I’ve done IG before when I had breakfast at Garden Grill and was staying at Pop and it just felt weird to me all day not having gone in the main entrance.
CSR Gran Destino Tower Room (I’d probably add on Memory Maker here too)
Pros: the rooms and the tower look gorgeous; I’ve heard great things about Three Bridges and staying there would make it easier
Cons: no Food Court (or grab and go only if it is operating, which is not super allergy-friendly); I feel like I’ve bounced to here on this reservation more than any and feel like my TA (who has the patience of Job) will just roll her eyes
Yacht Club Garden/Woods or Water View
Pros: Never stayed there before and I do like the Nautical Theme
Cons: I’m not a pool person so the “mystique” of SAB is lost on me; my “thing” about IG not feeling like I’m really in Epcot; not sure about QS options here
Riviera Standard View Studio (this one is a bit of a stretch but could be done)
Pros: resort looks beautiful; multiple food options
Cons: price-wise a bit of a stretch; see above for Skyliner/not feeling like IG is the real Epcot entrance
At one point recently, I was booked at CCV, but I am only slightly more into that theme than the horse/golf course theme at SSR - Geyser Point or not.
SOOOOOOOOO confused!! I’ll be happy when I hit the 30 day mark and the request has been emailed!!
