Should i change resorts? Input please! Por/WL/poly

With new discounts
POR $2400
WL $2800 (original $ of my POR reservation w/o discount)
Poly $3200

2nd trip
Stayed at POR before and loved it. Two adults, two kids dd8, ds5

My gut says POR or WL, we can afford poly, but I'm pretty frugal. Plus I'm not sure kids will notice or care...

All sound like great options! Maybe try WL to try something new.

If not for the construction, I'd say go for the Poly. We've never stayed at POR but, WL is our favorite!

When are you going? We are booked at Poly but the more I research, the more concerned I am about getting the full experience with the current construction so I'm looking to switch elsewhere. POR and WL are both on our list with WL having a slight edge!

We just got back from a week at the Poly on Sunday. It was fantastic. We stayed in Rarotonga and didn't notice the construction at all. Being on the monorail was so convienent. It was our first trip to the Poly and we now have a new favorite resort.

I would go with WL! It is beautiful, convenient to the MK and has no construction PLUS you save $400.00!!

We've stayed at Poly 4 times but if I had a choice between the resorts above I would choose WL for something different. From the pictures I've seen, you can't go wrong with the WL and you still have a boat to and from MK which is great!!

We've stayed at both the Poly and WL and the Poly would be my first choice, followed by the WL. We've never stayed at POR, but for just $400 more, I would choose WL without hesitation. Good luck.
