    The suites at deluxe properties are always really expensive. I've found that we're better off getting a 2 bedroom DVC villa over a 2 bedroom suite when staying at the resorts that have both DVC and non-DVC rooms. The only thing is with DVC you can't get club level/lounge and with the suites you do have access even if they're on a different floor.

    Maybe because it was right after Thanksgiving when you went. I know September is the cheapest month to go.

    We did club level at Boardwalk. They have a few larger rooms (deluxe ones) that sleep 6. Those were a good deal with the discount.

    I don't know.. but seriously I was just furiously googling ready to call Disney and throw an absolute fit lol. Do certain resorts get excluded from free dining like they do with passholder discounts?

    I know POFQ usually gets excluded. Some others that I cannot recall also.

    The 2 bedroom that I was talking about was club level. I can say with confidence that I will never be staying in that room lol.
    The Contemporary was excluded from all RO discounts during our week. They had one atrium level available, but I think that one was a 1 bedroom and also priced too high.
    I was mad about paying for a bunk bed that I didn't need, I'll never book a suite at Disney for the 2 of us.lol

    What kills me about Poly, is the theme park view standard rooms are more expensive than club level rooms. That just seems odd. Not including TPV club level.. that one's about $200 more I think.

    We stayed club level 3 times in a row over 2 years at Boardwalk. We joked that we were hoping for having spent so much they would upgrade us to the 2 bdrm suite. Ha!! We did get upgraded to a 2 bdrm at OKW once from a studio. That was a nice upgrade. :)

    I've never done the deluxe rooms at Boardwalk but I did a deluxe room at Beach Club in February 2015. I didn't love it. Yes the room was larger and we had a huge balcony but club level access was basically useless because we were on the 2nd floor and in a part of the building that was only 4 stories high. Club level at BC is on the 5th floor, so it was basically a maze to just get a cup of coffee in the morning. I paid well over $600 a night with a discount (general discount because I didn't have an AP back then). It wasn't my favorite trip.
    It sounds like your experience at BWI was better.

    I am gonna do TPV at Contemporary someday with just the wife. I don't think I could do a week there. Not really my thing. We are Poly in the summer and WL in the winter and FQ for weekend trips.

    Nice! I can't believe how expensive the 2 bedroom suite at BWI was. I had no idea.
    Eventually we will stay at BWI.. I know that T will love the pool..hopefully when Star Wars Land opens. Probably not club level though.

    I've stayed in RPC at GF years ago.. but not since motherhood, and don't see ever paying those prices again.lol. We only went to Disney for 3 nights or so back then.

    BW was way better than what you describe Beach Club. There are 2 floors of club. We were always on the floor with the dining area Not a maze at all. It was one long hallway. I would recommend it.

    You must have a kid who sleeps better than mine. If I don't have a separate room to put him in neither of us would ever get any sleep.

    I did peak in it when they were cleaning it once. Very nice, but only if spending $50,000 was like spending $50.

    Yes, they're like $200 more per night than regular TPV. I think they're over $900. Not positive though. I know in December they were over $1000.- and they sold out.
    I haven't stayed at the Contemporary since I was in high school. I originally had it booked for our November trip, before I changed the dates, but the more I thought about it, the more I wanted the convenience of GF to Poly's dining options. I really do want to do a stay there soon. But, I'm with you I also only want a few days only.
