If you could choose any resort....

Say money is not an object .... . If you could stay at ANY WDW Resort, which would you choose? Based on adults only. Please do not consider children in the answer. You would be going to both MK and Epcot

Actually ,we were going to do poly this coming trip but decided not too since we will be there during the christmas season and feel wilderness lodge gives us more of the holiday feel. I also feel poly is run down and we will be waiting for them to do some remodeling before staying there.

We would never stay at GF for a whole week. just not our thing. Maybe if we went for one "romantic" night (maybe big anniversary number) and stayed elsewhere for the remainder of the trip

It would be Boardwalk for me and my wife. Love that it's walking distance to Epcot.

If I could choose any for me it would be Poly! . I just love going over there to 'Ohana and believe I would love staying there too!

I love Poly! It's got such an awesome atmosphere. We had breakfast there this morning- ate my first Tonga Toast! Yummy!!!- and it was so hard to leave for our drive home!

I also have to say I think Boardwalk would be amazing for adults. We were going to stay there for our November trip but decided to take the kiddos, so we're staying elsewhere to save $. Maybe when we go for marathon weekend in January.

The trip is for the marathon, disneyrunnerchick! We decided on BWI . That and the contemporary are the only deluxe I never stayed at. I think BWI is perfect for an adult / marathon trip. I love hearing everyone's opinions though .

Either Poly or Beach Club for us. Love the nice relaxed atmosphere of the Poly. Love the easy access to Epcot's World Showcase from BC.

That was pretty much our situation this trip...not so much "money no object", but it is such a short trip we are able to splurge a bit.

We will be staying at the yacht club. I really wanted it to be one of the Epcot area resorts since it is walking distance to 2 parks + the restuarants/entertainment of the Boardwalk area... Since we are only adults we won't be spending enough time at MK to make the monorails a "must"
