So I just got a call from the VP of my company. They’re really grateful that I’ve taken on a bunch of extra work as of late and are giving me a one time bonus that I was not expecting at all. (I want to mention how grateful I am for my company and for this - I know this is a special privilege I have at a time when so many others are even struggling to find work. The bonus is substantial enough that I can set aside a bit for saving, a bit for charity, and still do a splurge for me.)
It looks like I can upgrade my 10/10-10/14 Pop reservation to either Contemporary Lake View, Poly Studio, or GF Garden View for about the same amount each. It’s just going to be me and my two kids - 4 and 1. We’re spending two days at MK and one at AK. My initial reaction was Contemporary because we can walk, but I’ve never stayed at GF (and there’s a chance its walkway is open by the time we go) and haven’t stayed at the Poly in 30 years. Given the kids’ ages and the current situation, what would you do? Or would you just stay at Pop and use the dollars for some other Disney splurge (though don’t know what really is available these days!)?
