We would spend two weeks at BLT. But then again that is exactly what we do twice a year. So i'm good.

The next resort I'd REALLY like to stay at is either Poly or the Treehouse villas. We are a family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids) so I think the Treehouse villas will work better for us, financially, if we were able to rent points or something....so I guess if "money was no object', it would be Poly!

If money were no object, I would pick AKL, maybe Poly for a few nights.

Or, I'd choose Coronado Springs and spend the savings on tours!

I've always wanted to stay at the Yacht or Beach Club. Grand Floridian would be next in line of preference.

Fort Wilderness Cabins or the Treehouse Villas. Fort Wilderness won out on this trip because of the boat to MK. I didn't really worry about the room cost when booking, but I love the home away from home and the private BBQ grill that both offer.

can't help but think that if I got a windfall where I would stay and where I would eat (I figure if I stayed on-site the dining plan would make alot of sense)
Curious to hear your answers and it doesn't have to be the most expensive place (it can) but where you would honestly stay if you had every available option.

The Castle suite for a night or a suite at the Poly for the whole trip (do they even have those?). Club level specifically at the Poly but only in a suite.

This sounds silly but I'm staying exactly where I want to. We're doing a split stay between the THV and AKV SV.

I stayed at the Poly the first time I went to Disney a million years ago when I was in fifth grade and there were only three in park hotels on the monorail. I've always wanted to stay there again but it's WAY out of our value/mod budget, at least right now. I hope to in the future. My husband and I have talked about going for a few days alone and doing that - but I would never have the heart to go to WDW without my DD5, especially when at this age she's still so in love with it. Honestly though, I think if it came down to it I would stay at the BWI - I haven't stayed there before and love the proximity to Epcot and the WS, which is my favorite part of Disney.
It always makes me sad to delete my ticker

I'd buy a house in Golden Oak!

If I couldn't afford that, I'd stay Club level TP View at the Contemporary or any suite at YC/BC.
