I’m 99% sure I’m booking a 4-night Disney Wonder cruise for Feb Break with one night before at WDW. (Other option is to do 5 nights at WDW like last year…but this girl who loves the sea wants ship time!!) Because my plan for the day prior to the cruise (my flight gets in around 9:30am) is to drop my stuff at the resort and head to Epcot for Festival of the Arts and Illuminations (gotta get those viewings in!!) - and because I feel like splurging on my resort, I guess an Epcot Area resort would be best.
At the moment (I’ll be putting the reservations on hold with my TA on Friday), Boardwalk Inn is the least expensive with the Gift of Magic discount, then Beach Club Villas in a Studio with the discount, then Beach Club without the discount, then Yacht Club with the discount. (I know Passholder rates are not out yet…and I also know those aren’t always cheaper).
Thoughts between those 3? I’ve got a breakfast ADR at Cape May Cafe for cruise embarkation day, so Beach Club makes the most sense in that respect…but I know they are all walkable. (Ditto if I go with an early Garden Grill ADR.) As I said, Boardwalk is the least expensive…but there is just something about it that doesn’t overly wow me. (Not to mention that hideous clown…though I’m not a pool girl, so I’d only fear having a room that overlooked that thing - not what I want to see first thing in the morning.)
Also, at the moment, there is the Contemporary Tower Theme Park View with the discount that is not a huge amount more than Beach Club or Yacht Club. If my plan is Epcot, is it worth staying at the Contemporary? Or am I better off with one of the first 3 I mentioned?
Thoughts? I’d really like to not drive my TA nuts with changes this time. Haha!
