    Hey Chris, thanks for another Top 5. I can so identify with loving being able to walk in the back door of Epcot and yet usually being on a Caribbean Beach budget. We love the Beach and we love the other moderates and yet when we stay in one of the Lake Crescent Resorts it is a whole different ballgame. The good news is that I am going to win the big lottery soon so we will just alternate between the Yacht Club, the Beach Club and the Boardwalk. Well, maybe the Grand Floridian once in awhile too.
    We are looking forward to the Skyliner.
    We are really looking forward to getting back there. Made fast pass reservations the other day. Only a little while longer. Thanks again for the vicarious thrills.

    Chris -- always interesting. We were in WDW in September (delayed due to the hurricane). Port Orleans - French Quarter was handy. Food has gone up everywhere. But the Halloween Party actually was cheaper this year than in 2016, when I paid for my daughter & son-in-law because the cost had gone up. September was cheaper than waiting for later so your experience may be different. And with the dance parties, castle shows, etc. there was more to the event than before (you already mentioned extra characters).
    By the way, the Yacht Club is not what it used to be. Bath tubs are now rare -- only showers, which means it is hard to deal with kids in the rooms. The carpet is gone. Dogs are now permitted in the rooms and when we were there last walking down the hall led to hearing dogs barking, We won't be there again (sad since it was nicer before).
    We were early enough in September to miss the Skyliner. But since we have been 25 times over the last 14 years, we will be able to catch the new transportation soon.

    So sad to hear about the state of the Yacht Club. Used to be one of our favorites. Weve switched to the Dolphin for now.

    Have to say, spent last summer's big 50th birthday trip at The Yacht Club with 27 people. We all loved it. Was my 5th time there. I had no issues at all. I wasn't crazy about the wood floor look, but it's probably a much cleaner thing than having a carpet in every room. The kids are teenagers so the tub thing didn't bother me. And I guess we didn't run into too many dogs. I saw two, but they were pretty quiet at that moment. Timing is everything I guess.
    But it's till my favorite and we can't wait to go back.
