Have to disagree as well. It depends on which resorts you are comparing I guess but I'll take the Universal Hotels over several of the Disney Deluxes any day.

Even club level or the suites we have stayed in.. have in no way compared to any of our stays at any Deluxe Disney resort.
Seriously ?!?!?! The Universal hotels far surpass most of the Disney deluxes and the moderates aren't even close to being in the same league

This is why that poster hasn't been back to this thread to back that statement up!

But I suppose anything better would be considered a luxury hotel, such as a Four Seasons or Fairmont. I shudder to think what the price tag on THAT would be!
I understand what you are saying. Our resort of choice is CSR. I feel that it is "almost" the equivlent of the WDW Deluxe resorts at a much better price. It has a fitness center which is important to me and a few other Deluxe type Mods. Last WDW trip we stayed for 14 nights there. For me the only really big thing the Deluxe resorts offer is location. I would really like to stay at an Epcot resort, but the same stay was going to be about $3500 more at BC or BW. I don't really feel like I would have enjoyed the resorts much more than CSR, so the question was did I want to pay $3500 for the location? I like that location so much I actually thought long and hard about it. But in the end couldn't justify $3500 to be able to walk to Epcot.

When I go to Disney I enjoy the proximity of the Epcot hotels to the park or the ease of transportation of the GF or Poly but I agree the hotel is not really a "deluxe" in the traditional sense. You are paying a premium for location, ease and additional theming. I am ok with the discounted rates (rack is just too high) and those only as as long as the room quality, cleanliness, and upkeep is kept to a certain standard.

We are considering extending our trip in June and given that I'm impatiently waiting on AP rates to come out and we have never tried Universal it is really tempted to give it a go this year. I sure would like one of those Universal PINs but if the rooms are that much better AND you get a special ticket perhaps I need to go checkout the GP offer at Universal. Thanks for the heads-up!
