P.S. Remember I have pics on my signature link! Mostly resort photos of my fave resort POLY of course!

Besides POLY it would be fun to see if any of you have a second hotel choice! I guess WL, because all in one resort.
I LOVE the BC!!! You can't beat the walk to Epcot. And we love the Boardwalk at night too. Next trip will be a hard decision that's for sure.

Only 4 more hours of work, then I can run some last minute errands, finish packing the bags and hopefully get to bed at a decent hour. We leave at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow for the airport!!!

I will try to do my part and give some updates while we're there. I'm not sure if I can post pictures though as we are not taking our laptop - only the Galaxy Tab, but MIL may be bringing hers.

Happy travels to everyone else headed to the Poly this week - see you around the pool!!

Have a safe trip guys! I'll be checking in 4 days from today. Just 3 more sleeps in my own bed.

Just need to get through tonight and tomorrow at work and then it will really feel real.

Let us know how your request goes. Did you do online check-in? If so, did you re-check to see if they put anything in there yet under your reservation?

My kids save dad all things Jasmine (pins, stickers, etc) and they think it's cute...I know otherwise...

We stayed at WL in May and thought it was just ok. It's hard to pick a 2nd favorite.

We liked the Beach Club's location but didn't like the limited food offerings or how the pool is so spread out. I think as the kids go off on their own and I'm not eye-balling them in the pool every second, this will be the place to go. The kids are awesome swimmers but I'm still a mom!

I loved Riverside! I haven't been back in years but that's only because I've lucked out on being able to stay at the Poly I would love to try all the moderate resorts.

I LOVED AKL BUT hated how far it was from the parks. AKL as a resort is fabulous and if that were on a monorail - whoa....it would be awesome.

I thought WL was fine and different and I'd stay there again if I had to but I prefer too many of the other resorts.

And I definitely did not like All Star Movies. And after that experience I will never stay in a value resort again.

YIPPEE!!!! Have a 'backscratcher' for me! My kids still talk about the backscratchers... (I gave them the bamboo piece, not the drink!)

I guess it helped at WL that we were upgraded for free and the trip itself ran smooth! The kids were younger and it was our first deuxe stay. We've never stayed value because of the discount codes. Moderate wise we've only stayed at CSR which was fine-except so spread out, we did enjoy the pool area. I disliked the Swan & Dolphin, worst stay thus far! I did split stay, not by choice and hated the crowds & conference feel of the hotel and its also not ran by Disney & you can tell, we went to gift shop there a lot for Disney vibe! Favorite is POLY and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
