Will you be sleeping in and having coffee on the balcony? Walking the sandy beach at night during Wishes? Using the pool and hot tub during the day? Will you be spending a lot of time at the MK, so that having the monorail right there will be a big plus? If you're not going to take advantage of what the resort has to offer, I don't know if it's worth the extra money.
Personally, I would be looking for some kind of discount before I would book the Poly or any deluxe at the rack rate. I know myself well enough to know that I would spend the entire 3 days rethinking whether it was worth an extra $200 every night. And if it bothered me that much, it would take away from enjoying my trip.
That being said, if you're the type who can let it go easily once the decision is made, the I prefer the Poly over CSR. But CSR gets my vote for best moderate.
I agree with this 100%. Thats $200/night we're talkin about. Not sure about you, but we're in the parks all day so we dont get to spend much time at the resort. CSR gets my vote.
