agreed. Or Beach Club villa. LOVE. Can't beat the location. I love being steps away from Epcot and just a few steps more from DHS.

I'd have them look over the monorail resorts and pick the one that has the vibe they favor. Of course, theme park view if they can swing it.

For us it is hands down Boardwalk or Beach/Yacht Club- the location cannot be beat- we spend the majority of our vacation at EPCOT/DHS anyway and the nighttime entertainment at Boardwalk is fantastic

I've always wanted to stay at animal kingdom lodge. I've heard you see the animals from the room....maybe even from a balcony in the room

Remember Poly is under construction for DVC, so for your friend, it might not be the best choice. I think a BW garden room, Grand Floridian, AKL savannah view. All are great choices. It's kind of a personal choice

My dream is to stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Club level and great view, of course. I've never been, but it just looks so beautiful! Someday...

TO me it isn't so much about the hotel because we really don't spend a lot of time there. We only take vacation once a year (a big one anyway) and I would rather stay longer at a moderate than shorter at a deluxe.
Me too! Even if I were super rich, I couldn't justify the money to stay deluxe. I would much rather stay longer! POR is my fav!

If it isn't an object, the Contemporary resort. To me, that's "Walt's Resort."

We are staying at BC Garden view this time but as a dream vacation, I would probably pick split stay 6 nights BC CL Lagoon View and 6 nights Poly CL TPV.

We used to stay at CR TPV when Iwas young. It was awesome (though I was scared of fireworks at the time). But we would always visit GF and Poly during our trip and I always said to myself "when I am older I want to stay at poly". It's always been a dream.

We were toying with going there this year since the price was not far off from the BC, but husband wants to do an epcot resort and I've notice that Poly seems run down lately. Might wait until after they refurb.
