Honeymoon Help - Grand Floridian or Wilderness Lodge

My fiance are trying to decide on the best play to stay during our honeymoon. We just returned from a trip that we paid for ourselves in April - and we stayed at the French Quarter. This time is different considering money isn't an issue AND it's our honeymoon. Honestly, we were so pleased with FQ that we wouldn't even mind going back there, but you're supposed to go all out for your honeymoon, right?

We knew we wanted a Magic Kingdom resort; so after a good amount of research we narrowed it down to The Grand Floridian and Wilderness Lodge. I can honestly go either way at this point.

That being said, I've always wanted to stay at GF for as long as I've been going to WDW, but have never had an opportunity. Which is kind of the way I see this - an opportunity that we may never get again, totally unfettered.

Where we stay doesn't really phase her, she's just happy to be there, but she's leaning more toward Wilderness Lodge.

My big concerns are as follows

1). Is Grand Floridian just a really nice hotel or does it manage to retain that certain Disney Magic that I KNOW Wilderness Lodge would have. Because honestly, lavishness wouldn't matter one way or another if it didn't feel like we were at Disney.

2). I've read rumblings that Grand Floridian can be kind of stuffy as opposed to other resorts. Not Yacht Club stuffy, but still pretty up-tight. Is that true?

3). The Wilderness Lodge seems like a top-tier Moderate (which is totally fine), so what, other than theme and obvious Disney Magic, would we get for it over the GF?

What do you think, DISers? Lets have some super awesome insight!
