    I am hoping we can stay at the Poly again this September!!!!! We didn't want to spend as much on vacation this year so I was actually contemplating a split stay at POFQ for 4 days and then Poly for 4 days. We will see, 8 days at the Poly would be better! :dance3:

    We started out trying to save money on our WDW vacation this year too, and got an amazing deal for POR, but it just didn't feel right to us. After a little discussion and pleading on my part (not too much pleading though, more like just planting a seed:rolleyes1) DH and I switched back to the Poly.
    Now all is right with the world:hippie:

    Well you certainly have a dilemma! We have stayed at both and I can give you some things to think about.

    The WL is a relaxed laid back atmosphere with rocking chairs rustic decor with
    beautiful flora but whispering canyon gets really loud In The lobby. It is possible to get glimpses of wishes in certain areas. Artist pointe is a signature restaurant with some really awesome mussels. The buses make it difficult to just jaunt back to the resort for a nap or a swim.

    The poly is über relaxing laid back atmosphere.. Rooms are extra large, the pool is absolutely gorgeous! You can be back at the resort from MK or Epcot in about 20 minutes there or back. Sitting by the pool sipping a Lapu Lapu as the sun sets is something that is heavenly! Waking up early nursing a fresh cup of coffee from the 24 hr captain cooks while walking along the totally vacant beach as the sun rises! Hearing the faint sounds of the cast members at MK getting fired up for the day.. Priceless! Sitting on the beach watching the castle change colors.. Fabulous! Did I mention WISHES from the beach? It's a head on view. The reflections on bay lake as the fireworks dance in the night sky cannot be discounted! The smell as you walk leisurely walk through the tropical rainforest lobby.

    Not being biased or anything..:rolleyes1

    Though I've read through them before, I just reread all the initial posts on the thread. :lovestruc I am excited about all the resort activities - we never seem to make time for these, but I'm determined to this trip.
    I cannot wait!

    Thanks for starting the new thread Rob! I am so excited. Ticker says 2 months, 4 weeks now! Getting down in the days, I don't know what on earth I'm going to do with myself AFTER the trip!! Cry maybe. Cry and whine. Yup, that sounds about right. LOL
