You can't go wrong either way. Both are beautiful, both have good food, both are close to Disney (one by boat one by monorail), lots of exploring can be done, and lots of activities at both. Our next trip we're staying at the Poly, but our last 2 trips have been at WL. We love both, it's a win win situation.

It really is a "Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow".

I have stayed at both.

WL twice, Poly more then that.

The first time I stayed at the WL, it was just me & my sister met me as did my cousin (She lived in FL) with her kids. It was just for a night or two so it wasn't that bad.

I enjoyed the boat ride to/from the MK.

The next time I stayed there I took my dh (then boyfriend) & I decided I hated the buses. We did have a rental car so we used that here & there. I still liked the boat to the MK.

The rooms were fine, the resort was fine but it just wasn't for me.

I missed the Poly & the views of the MK plus the monorail. Some people hate the rooms saying they are too old/dark/drap (they are remodeling now) but I really can't say I give the rooms a second thought.

For me, once I cross that threshold into the lobby, check in & then walk out of the GCH & hear the pool water rushing, hear the boat horn blowing, hear the train from the MK, hear the howl from the HM and then I see it...I see the castle...ahhhhh...I know that is where I want to be.

But that is me. You may not like it.
