[QUOTE=hanwill;1919094692]Good for you. As a non DVC person, is this a pain? I’ve always wondered if this adds to your stress, or if it happens often/not often… Have a great trip.[/QUOTE]
Well, it adds as much stress at you want to add. We already had rooms at BLT (we own there) so it’s not like we would have been sleeping in the bushes. We like doing split resort stays to cut down using disney transportation. That’s why staying at BWV would have been ok. But we really like BCV. It’s just seems such a calming place. At our age, having great spots to sit and rest and enjoy are a plus. Our days of disney parks from opening to close are over. Well, maybe we could handle one long day, but that’s about it. On our travel day (we usually get a 7 am ish flight) by the time we get to get to disney (about noon), Dh is ready for a nap.
I think if anything adds stress, it’s the fast pass thing. It was bad enough thinking where do we want to eat 6 months in advance, now it’s where do we want to lock in three rides a day two months ahead. Hearing people staying up to midnight to get passes for mine train or some Princess thing. Yes, it’s nice to have a ride already locked in as you walk into the park, but I sure wish they had done maybe get 1 or 2 advance FP+ and then you could get FP the old way.
