if money was no object...where would you stay

We just got back from 5 nights at the World and we all can't wait to go back! We stayed off-site but had a nice clean hotel and great affordable buffet breakfast most mornings (except character breakfast morning at animal kingdom) and we payed alot for cabs (shuttle was there but not super convenient) and we paid ALOT for food because we had no dining plan.
can't help but think that if I got a windfall where I would stay and where I would eat (I figure if I stayed on-site the dining plan would make alot of sense)
Curious to hear your answers and it doesn't have to be the most expensive place (it can) but where you would honestly stay if you had every available option.

I would do a split stay at Wilderness Lodge Club Level and Port Orleans Riverside Royal Room. Or I might be swayed by Poly CLub Level Theme Park View.

Presidential suite at the CR! With the Platinum Plan. Awesome view of the MK, largest balcony on site and walking distance to MK. Along with all meals and recreation included.

Loved the RR! We got upgraded to an amazing location with a gorgeous view. I don't know how I'll stay at POR again unless we're in the same room!

We are doing a split stay on both the Wilderness and RR... Which one was your favorite? How do they compare? I'm going for Christmas! Can't wait!!

I have a soft spot for WL, only stayed once on my honeymoon. I had wanted to stay ever since i saw it being built on my trip in 1989. Went to dinner at Artist Point our last trip and got teary eyed walking through the resort. On our HM, We were in a woods view room on the MK side, 6th floor. Barely could see the castle through all the trees. Lovely resort, hope we can afford to go back.

I stayed there when I was a kid... it was AMAZING and something I'll always remember. We had a code and had to swipe our keys I think.


I'd choose CR concierge with MK view.

I really like pop century because it is so whimsical. Same with All-stars. I know they aren't as posh, but...

This thread really is a "to each his own" type opinion and far be it from me to berate anyone.
