Okay, my annual trip to WDW is planned. Oct 9-23/05 (Yes! 2 weeks this time :cool1: )

I have booked the 1st week at Silver Lake Resort- thank you, hockeymom
and the second week is for the Sheraton Vistana again (went last year it was great!)

From Oct 11-Oct 15 a friend of mine and 1 of her sons is going to join me for 4 days. Money is not a concern for her and wants to stay at one of the hotels with THE EASIEST transportation back from the parks. I suggested that she stay at Wilderness Lodge because of the boat back from the MK. She thinks she'd rather be on the monorail hotels. I had thought of the Contempory but I've read alot of bad stuff about the rooms (very dated and black mold in the bathrooms)
I have stayed at the Poly but that was many years ago, and my recent impression of it was that again it seemed very dated, don't know what the rooms are like.
My question to all of you is of those deluxe monorail places which do you think a mom and her 7 yr (hyper) son would like and why?

and is conceigre worth the price difference? (remember it's not really a money issue)

I think that the easiest transportation back from parks may be at the BW or BC area as you can walk or take boat from Epcot and MGM. It really depends on which park she plans on spending the most time in. While the MK resorts do have the monorail it is a long bus ride to Epcot or MGM and DTD requires a transfer at the dreaded TTC.

I would choose the Poly. My kids loved that volcano pool. I think the GF would be a bit to much for a hyper 7 yr old and for some reason I just don't like the Contemporary.

Looks like our days of great RFC meals are over :guilty:

Happy planning Wendy.

Yeah, I would also recommend an Epcot resort.

Gosh, are the decisions harder to make when money is no object??? ;) :)

If your friend wants a monorail hotel, and her DS is a MK fan, I'd go for the Poly. I'm sure he'd love the pool!! :) I've never tried their concierge, so I can't really comment on that, but what the heck, if she's paying, you might as well try it out! :)

If the MK isn't her DS's favourite park, I'd suggest an Epcot resort. It's so nice to have Epcot and MGM within easy walking distance. Lots of restaurants close by too! :)
