Best Deluxe to try for one night
 
We have a trip planned in August. Looks like we will be able to add 1 day at the beginning before heading to POP. We have stayed at the most of the values and a couple of the moderates. Normally we use the room only to sleep so we have never felt the need to upgrade at Disney.
This time we want to try a Deluxe just to see if it would be worth considering in the future. I thought about Animal Kingdom since I think my wife and daughter would enjoy seeing the animals. I would appreciate any and all other suggestions though.

The Poly!!!! We just returned from a 4 night stay and I have to say it was our BEST Disney hotel experience EVER! Very calm and relaxing

I would also recommend the AKL. We spent 1night there at the beginning if a trip a few years ago we totally enjoyed our time there.

Whichever you choose, i suggest taking as much time as possible to enjoy the resort. They really are experiences all on their own

Hope you have a wonderful time!!

We're actually staying at AKL for one night on our next trip in July! My wife and I both agree that it's our least favorite of all of the deluxes, but we're both excited to try out dinner and Jiko this time around.

I think AKL is a great pic. It's a lovely resort, has great restaurants, and animal viewing is fun. Only problem is you won't want to leave. ;)

Another vote for AKL. :thumbsup2

My choice would be the Poly, although AKL is great as well. The Poly is great as the tropical atmosphere is relaxing, the beach is great for watching the fireworks, and it's nice walking around at night under the lit tiki torches. With that said, AKL is quiet (IMO) since it's kind of out away from everything and would be nice for a relaxing resort day. Good luck deciding, but I don't think you can go wrong with any of the deluxes.

My choice would be Poly or Boardwalk Inn

poly or boardwalk would be great choices for their location IF you were going to go to the parks.

if I were staying only 1 night at a deluxe resort, I wouldn't go to the parks at all. so AK would be a great choice.

(now if it were adults only, I would say Boardwalk, so much to do there for adults.)

My vote is for Poly!

Have dinner at O'hana, watch the fireworks and water pageant from the beach (or room) and a great pool to swim in!!!

Easy access to MK and Epcot too!

WL. I think it's a great choice for your first dip into the deluxe pool. Lol. Boat ride to MK is awesome. You feel a million mies away, then you turn the corner and there's the Castle.

I agreed with all of this.

Second choice would be CR theme park view :)

I've always wanted to stay at the Poly (hopefully next year!) but I'd be afraid after the one night, I wouldn't want to leave and end up tying myself to the nearest palm tree at checkout time! :eek: But that would be my vote! With AKL my second choice :)

Singinglizzie 05-30-2013 10:27 PM

AKL will be easier on your wallet, so it might be a good first deluxe experience. Having stayed at both AKL and Poly, it would be a tough choice between the two but... if you don't plan on using the monorail, then AKL all the way!! it really is a lovely resort.

smidgy 05-30-2013 11:52 PM

again, if it is only one night, what dif. does it make how close it is to a park? why spend the money for the resort if you are going to spend the time at a park?

choose a resort you will spend the whole evening at. itmight be poly, with dinner at ohanas and wishes and the water pagaet fro mthe beach (or GF).

or if you choose one of the epcot resorts, you can watch parts of illuminations from the bridge between BC and BW, and you can watch the movies from the beach. there are many restaurants to eat at. beach club has stormalong bay, which you swim at until midnight the dayof check out.

but, with only one night, I wouldn't waste it at a park.
