So the cabins at CCV. Have any of you stayed in one? Is there any noise from the boat horn? Anything I should be aware of (the good and the bad)if I plan a stay there?

JC and Jax, thank you for the information about cash reservations. I called and got a couple of quotes today.

And goodness but those cabins are expensive!

No problem! Are you planning another trip or adding on to your already booked trip?

And I'm not sure I want to know what a CCV cabin goes for!

It's over $10,000 plus tax for five nights in February. , indeed!

My sister and her husband are planning to go to Florida in February to visit the keys and go to Disney World. I'll have an active annual pass at that time, as well as a Southwest companion pass, so I am planning to go with them. We were hoping to get a two bedroom at BRV or CCV, but there are none available for cash right now. A cabin would also work, but I just don't know if I can bring myself to pay over $11,000. I mean, I could use that and another $9,000 to buy a decent sized resale contract.

Oh, and I am using my 2019 points for a January trip (two bedroom at BLT with friends) and a November/December trip (studio or one bedroom at BLT with my daughter, who will be almost three).

So right now I have trips planned in January, February, and November/December. Happy days!

The February trip will be somewhere around the 5th through the 10th. I'll get it posted on the meetup thread when I get everything settled. Aren't you going at around that time?

I'm afraid it's one of those "a week in a studio or a night in a cabin" deals. I haven't done the math but think it's in the ballpark.

And you're going to do it someday. You know you want to....

Wow! I don't think I'd be able to justify that price for a cabin at CCV. Maybe in some other exotic location with a private beach or something, but that $11,000 is too much for a 5 night Disney trip, IMO. A cabin is only two bedrooms, right?! That's too much $ split between too little people. Just get a couple studios or rooms for that trip!

But that's amazing you are planning to be there in January and then again in February! We'll be there Feb. 2-10, so maybe we can meet up. We'll have friends there part of the time, but still not sure if they will be there on the front or back end of our dates. I haven't added my trips to the meet-up thread yet.

Ugh, I really don't think I could bring myself to, but never say never. Maybe when the kids have outgrown Disney trips and we suddenly find ourselves swimming in points!

Yes, occupancy guidelines do allow this. Prepare to be cramped.

I got to see one on a brief tour in May. IIRC a cabin is pretty much a Grand Villa (3BR) plus a huge porch and a great view.

And if you're staying at an Epcot resort, you should always, always have park hopping or an AP. There are so many reasons why you might want to pop into (or through!) Epcot.
We have considered this as well. You also have to remember EPCOT usually closes before MK. So you cant return by monorail after EPCOT closes.

The cabins are one bedroom with a queen and a bunk in one room. NO privacy for adults lol. There is a Murphy bed in the LR that allows sleeping for 6. My opinion is 6 would be a crowd in a cabin. BUT all our offspring are too old to go with us so we are a little space selfish
