Stayed at POR on "adults only" trip. Alligator Bayou is rustic and quiet. Took boat to DTD at night.

Have you checked the Swan/Dolphin rates?

I picked CBR because I like it best of your options, but I would probably stay offsite.

And be aware IMHO CSR while loved in here has the worst service on property. And I gave them 3 shots. LOL

OOOHHH...can't believe I didn't think about this as I'm always checking rates at S&D...they take AAA discount. They are right there with BCV and BWV (who, by the way, are ALL booked up for the time OP is trying to go...might be a single night open, but that's it...for DVC only OKW and SSR is open the entire time OP is looking). OP should def look at S&D...I'm going to go check it out now...curious.

AAA rate at the Swan for 6/22-6/27 is $169/night plus taxes and fees for a total of $1035.63 for the stay. No availability at the Dolphin.

Another vote for Swan/Dolphin. Deluxe resorts at moderate prices, especially with one of their many available discounts. You can't beat the location of the Epcot resorts. Lots of great dining and bar options for an adults only trip.

Having stayed at both, I agree.

You do get EMHs and can walk or boat to both Epcot and DHS. You can't get the dining plan, or Magical Express.

Yes, I did. We did stay in a Pirate Room, so we were in an "island" that was further out, but they also had regular rooms there too. If we had used the internal shuttle, our stop was the second from the main house, but we would have to stopped at all but one of the other stops to get there. I didn't like being so far out.

I voted for POR because it has more of a romantic feel, but we also love Pop and have even stayed there during a anniversary adult only trip. We just love the nostalgia. So I would say it just really depends on your tastes and what you want from the trip. If you want to enjoy peace and quiet without kids, Pop may not be for you. Even though we stayed at Pop, I booked us a carriage ride at POR and it was very romantic. Not too bad on the wallet either.

I voted POR only because when I was thinking about staying at CSR I did a lot of research on that resort and found out that they have those motion sensors on the air conditioners and once nobody is moving around the room (like when you are sleeping) the a/c cuts off ALL NIGHT LONG.

Some ppl have said that every 2 days you can call maintenance and have them come to your room and do some kind of bypass on your a/c to make it stay on without motion but who wants to mess with that crap every 2 days.
