I haven't been able to take a long vacation from work in too long! but if I could, I'd choose a longer stay, especially if pools weren't important. Our best vacations, to me, are the ones where we can stay the longest, relax, and enjoy all that Disney World has to offer. One of the best vacations we had we stayed at ASMo for 10 nights in Oct. We didn't go to parks everyday all day, we took off mornings, afternoons and evenings to visit other resorts, play mini golf, go to DD. For example, breakfast at Boma, then bike ride at WL. lunch and afternoon swim at ASMo and MK in the evening. We stayed at WL for 10 nights over Christmas, that trip was fantastic, but it was so cold we never used the pool and I had to force myself into the hot tub. The following Christmas we were going for 10 days again and I choose POR to save some $, loved it! They were all great vacations! Enjoy your planning!
Thank you for all the info!! I also will be there in December and that's another reason the pool isn't make or break. It may be too cold to swim anywhere
I love the idea of trying different things there too like mini golf. Is that on the Disney property?
