My favorite adult only vacation resort is BWI. I like the location and the close proximity to Epcot. Between the World Showcase and the 5 Epcot resorts, there is a large variety of dining and evening entertainment. I'm especially fond of the bluezoo lounge at the Dolphin.

We liked WL for our 10th, for our 20th we did CSR. If I had to choose for our next one it would be Beach Club, Boardwalk, WL or POFQ. In that order.

We've yet to sneak off without kids, but I would love to go & stay at POFQ! It is such a beautiful resort & the New Orleans vibe is super romantic to me. The boats to DD & the smaller size of this resort are also a big bonus!

No matter where you stay, you'll have a fabulous trip! Happy planning!

My choice would be the Poly. The tropical atmosphere is beautiful, the beach is great for relaxing in a hammock watching the fireworks, and it's romantic walking around at night under the lit tiki torches. The Poly is also convenient to a variety of TS options for romantic dinners.

If you want Deluxe, my personal preference would be Poly.

Moderate, definitely POFQ.

You probably do not want a value for a romantic vacation!

If Food and Wine is still going on I'd recommend an EPCOT resort or the Poly for convenience. My husband and I did an adults only trip last October and stayed at the Contemporary, theme park view. We loved it, always love the CR, but it was still ridiculously hot, heat index was 105 most days and the crowds were ridiculous. We actually never even hopped it was so packed. November is a great time but busy. If late November and you want to do the Christmas Party, I'd recommend either Wilderness Lodge or a monorail resort. We also love the EPCOT resorts though, so I'd go one of those routes.

I also would say POFQ. It is a smaller resort, and just romantic to walk around. Also fun for the boat ride to DTD as well as a possible horse & carriage ride. I also like the Moderate price! I also enjoy being away from the crowds.

My second choice would be any of the Epcot resorts. Especially if you are there during the Food & Wine festival(being November-if early in month). Just the convince to two great parks, as well as the Boardwalk. My DH and I have had lots of romantic hours strolling around the lake, riding a Surrey built for two, or just enjoying the area while we sat on a bench and people watched. There is more good spots to eat then you could possibly hope for, and enough to keep you busy is you never want to hop on a bus.

Thanks for all of the good ideas. It will be a short trip. November 15-18. Not sure if I can swing a deluxe resort but should be able to do a moderate.

If just my husband and I were going, we would stay at an EPCOT resort. We are big fans of strolling around the World showcase, having a nice dinner in some country so that location is good for us.

You should do the math and think about getting an annual pass for one person in your party. Depending on the numberof days you stay, it might not cost much more than if you bought a park hopper for those days.

Then, the pass can save you 35% on your room!

The beautiful part is, you don't have to have the pass to book the room, you just have to show it at check in. So when you are booking, you can see if it will save you money before you commit.

So, don't actually buy the pass until you see if it will help you. Who knows, it may inspire you to make another trip within the year!
