We plan on going in October so not sure how cold it will be and if that should be considered when choosing between these hotels (pools etc). Any help is appreciated.
EPCOT resorts are within walking distance to both EPCOT & DHS. CONTEMPORARY RESORT is within walking distance to the MK. Even as close together as AKL is to AK, can't walk between them. Ditto with GF and MK. Wise to consider walking to the parks when you can. Beats the speed of getting there on the Disney boats and buses. ESPECIALLY the bus, biggest gripe factor found on all the resort threads.
