hotel choice Carousel + GCH or PP

So I may be having to change my hotel reservation and I'm starting to wonder about my choices, I originally planned to stay at the Carousel Inn for a few nights then move to GCH for the rest of the trip, but for the same cost I can stay at PP the entire trip. Besides the difference in walking times to get to the parks, are there any advantages/disadvantages to changing hotels? Maybe someone whose stayed at all my choices could weigh in?

I would definately go to PP for the whole time. I stayed at the Carousel one night last May and really thought it was sub par.

If entering the parks early is important to you, PP will allow early entry/magic morning hour every day of your trip.

I'd rather stay onsite for the entire trip so I'd choose PP, but I do love the Grand!

Staying onsite gets you in for EMH every day.

If it's the same price I would do it for sure.

I'm with everyone else is just stay at PP the whole time. I really liked the rooms and thought they were pretty large for a standard hotel if that helps at all

Also the nice thin staying on property... You can ship all your purchases back to your hotel and pick them up the following morning. If you can stay at the GCH DO IT! My absolute favorite!! Good luck!!

I would do PPH for early entry. With the crazy crowds lately, I wouldn't stay off site, I would want EE.

We prefer GC, but realize it is more $. We like the atmosphere much more than others you mentioned.
