I'm planning a short trip for later this year with two other girlfriends. If it were up to me, I'd pick a deluxe resort in the Epcot circle for our stay since I think we'll be interested in having access to the IG, but neither of them wants to pay deluxe prices. So now, I'm primarily looking at Swan or POFQ. I know that prices will be the ultimate deciding factor, but right now, they're fairly even: my friend can get a teacher discount at the Swan, and I'm assuming some sort of discount or package will be out for later this year since we're not traveling during peak season. My only requirement is that the rooms have queen beds. As long as free dining doesn't come out (which if it does, we'll stay at POFQ), it's OK that we can't get the dining plan if we stay at Swan. Theming is not important to us--as long as the rooms are nice and comfortable and not ugly or gaudy, we're good. We'll also have a car, so no ME isn't an issue. We also won't have any kids with us on this trip--my friends primarily are interested in swimming, sunning and eating (I'm primarily interested in going on all of the thrill rides I've never gone on with my chicken kids... ) Has anyone felt let down at a stay at the Swan? Or does it feel just as "special" as any of the other Epcot circle resorts? Would you choose it over POFQ?
