We absolutely love both. The thing that gives the Poly the edge for us, is the room size and the closeness to the TTC to grab the express monorail to Epcot. Aside from that, we would probably prefer WL. We really enjoy that everything is in one building at WL, and it is beautiful. I will say that a ground floor courtyard view might be a little loud, but maybe not so much in November when the mornings might be a little cooler. The one time we had a courtyard instead of a woods view, we were on the 3rd floor right outside the seating area where people take their CS outside to enjoy and the path down to the boat, and it got pretty loud outside our window in the mornings.

I have been excited about trying WL in December of this year. I've narrowed it down to Contemporary or WL, with WL edging out the CR.

Keep the info flowing Poly and WL fans!!
If you were underwhelmed by the poly I don't know if disney has anything to offer you that you will be impressed with.

I disagree. We stayed at the Poly a number of years ago and it did not appeal to us. A few years ago we gave it another try and again, we did not like it at all.
The CMs were indifferent, the rooms are dark and gloomy, the Volcano pool is too small for the resort's size, the monorail is always crowded with people coming and going for the meals.
On the other hand, we love other WDW resorts, especially, CSR, BWV, BC, and AKV.

Wow. Well that's good now I don't feel so bad about not being able to afford the stay there.

Thank you. That is exactly what my husband keeps saying. It would be nice to see them after they are freshly done. I am thinking maybe stick with the Poly this time while I have the 35% off since the Poly does not offer that much of a discount very often. Seems when they offer room discounts they knock Poly's down to 20% sometimes. .....Then while we are out there, check out Wilderness Lodge for our next stay.

Thanks again everyone for you imput
