Thanks for taking the initiative! We have stayed at Poly before and would love to go back, but I would also like to try Contemporary with a theme park view. Unless it was Christmas time, then I would want Wilderness Lodge. Who am I kidding, I'll go anywhere as long as I end up at Disney

I have always had 2 that are my dream resorts, Poly and BC. We're lucky enough with this being an alone trip that we're staying at Beach Club this time, so I'll be able to strike that off the list!


ETA: Feel free to come up with the question of the day if I don't post one! I don't mind at all! Some days are tough for me to find time to get one here, and anything that helps our thread to pick up the pace makes me happy. I love chatting Disney and it gets me excited for August!

That is a great plan!

For my family it's probably Contemporary and I'm hoping we can do that in January. Maybe Beach Club for another summer trip? But my ultimate goal is GF too! Except that I just want to go for an adults only trip with my husband for that one!

Yeah, I may do that tomorrow. I called to get the AAA rates (since you can't get those on the website) and I thought maybe the CM would tell me if I had a pin, but I didn't specifically ask. Maybe they can't tell you unless you ask .

Actually his favorite part of Disney is the food so we're doing the DxDP to appease him. Raglan Road at DTD is another favorite of his. (However, they're kind of similar, but the food at Rose & Crown is much more traditional pup fare while Raglan Road is more creative and upscale I think.) Nine Dragons always seems quiet or San Angel? I asked him and he just shook his head. He goes with the flow as much as possible!

Thanks! He chose Via Napoli and San Angel. I took him to the TRex Café in Kansas City to test his reaction (that place is LOUD!) and he did okay, but I know he'd do better in a less rowdy environment.

My dream resort has been any one of the Boardwalk/Epcot area resort since I first walked over there 15 years ago on our honeymoon. Finally this August we're staying at YC!!! Not complaining though, we stayed at VWL and CR on past trips and POFQ on our honeymoon and loved them all.

I want to stay at Poly...looks so pretty.

I would also like the Beach Club since the boys would love the pool. And Animal Kingdom Lodge with a savanah view. But those 2 will never happen. DH refuses to stay anywhere other than Contemporary or Poly since those were the only places he ever stayed at as a child. oh well, at least my Poly dreams will come true at some point.

Since this is our first trip I don't have anything for comparison, but I would love to stay at the Poly! My dh is Hawaiian, so I thought it would be a bit tongue in cheek to book a stay there!! Really though I would love the chance to stay in any deluxe.

I've never stayed at any of them! My family always stayed off property when I was little even with my mom's CM (Disney Store) discount!! My DH and I are taking our kids for the first time and staying at POP, but would LOVE to stay at as many different resorts as I can in the future if I can swallow the price differences!!!

We handle the price difference by spending one night at a more expensive moderate or deluxe and the rest of our stay at a less expensive resort like a value. We love sampling resorts and try to stay at multiple resorts in each trip!

Same here! I would LOVE to stay at BC but I also love not spending my 2-3x my mortgage for a week stay.

I always wondered if moving resorts complicates things. Like, do you have to get up early just to move your bags?
