If you could choose ANY Disney resort ...
If you could choose any Disney resort (excluding club level), which resort and why.
I am trying to be realistic with pricing should I be able to upgrade our existing ressie.
Traveling with DH, DD 10 DS 7.

We stayed at the BCR and absolutely loved it. Next we'd like to try AK , Poly and WL.

For us, it's the Poly. We love the large rooms, the tropical atmosphere, the pool, the beach, Captain Cooks, and being on the monorail. We have had great stays at all of the resorts we've stayed at, but the Poly is our favorite :goodvibes.

We picked the Beach Club. I really love the idea of being so close to Epcot and DHS, as we think we will spend a lot of time in those parks. My kids really love swimming, and my husband and I love hot tubs, so Stormalong Bay was a big draw. The lack of hot tubs is what made us decide to wait on trying out the Poly this year.

If money were no issue I would choose the Polynesian. I love the feel of it, the beach, the pool, watching the electrical parade, and that it is on the monorail.

If money is an issue I would pick Pop Century. I didn't want to try a value but once I did we had a blast and found a lot of pluses to it.

For me, I've always wanted to try GF, so this August I've added 2 nights at GF before our YC stay.
We haven't stayed at YC yet either, but have stayed at BC, Poly, AKL, & WL.
So after Aug. we will have stayed at all the deluxe that really interest me. CR & BWI- not so much. But I may stay at those at some point, just to see.

Epcot is my favorite park, and I love that BWV is within walking distance of both Epcot and HS. I also just love the atmosphere of the Boardwalk area.

AKL. The theme is outrageous and
I found it to be the most relaxing of the hotels which we have stayed. I love that it seems to create two different vacations in one. The parks are handy, but you can feel like you are a million miles away.

Have stayed at every deluxe and would choose in order:
1. Grand Floridian
2. Beach Club
3. Contemporary
4. Wilderness Lodge
5. AKL
6 .Poly

We are CR people! Actually, we stayed at BLT in a 1 bedroom last week and loved it. I never would have thought I'd be such a CR fan. It doesn't have the ambiance of WL or the beautiful grounds like Poly, but it just works for my family. We like being in one building instead of separate like at Poly or GF.

Isn't it great that WDW has a choice of resorts so everyone can find something to their liking!

kapoof 03-06-2013 06:23 AM

i think it would be cr because we haven't stayed there yet and with the new fl i would want to be very close to the mk.

staceymarie 03-06-2013 07:17 AM

We love CR. The monorail is a big plus and it all being in the same building and not so spread out. BIG rooms and love a balcony. Good view from every room in the tower.
2nd is Poly. If wasn't such a haul to get around the resort--it would probably have been my favorite for the fireworks on the beach and that great bar out by the pool.
3rd is WL. Love the decor and atmosphere.

Deluxe is usually what I go for because of the balconies. I need a balcony on vacation. Love the proximity to MK also.

I guess Grand Floridian would be my pick. The look of that place has always been very appealing to me. I sometimes think I was born a century later than I should have been. But that said, I think every place has its pluses and have enjoyed our time at every place at which we have ever stayed. In other words, whatever your decision, it will be a good one!

I would stay in the Poly. Given the cost per night, it will never happen tho. :(
