Our family (DH, 6 yo DS and myself) will be taking our 1st trip to WDW the first week of May. I've got reservations, at a great price, for a 1 BR suite at the new Residence Inn LBV, on Palm Pkwy. for the 5 nts. we'll be there. HOWEVER, the more I think about it, the more I think we should stay onsite for at least the 1st 2 nts., when we'll be at MK (Day1) and MGM/EPCOT (Day 2). We are NOT early risers and the idea of dealing with driving to the parks, then waiting for a parking lot tram to TTC, then yet another leg of transportation to get to MK seems a bit much. We're also are not a "as long as it's clean, we'll take it" kind of family. We really do like spacious, attractive hotel rooms. And, of course, we're on a budget!!! From what I've read recently, CBR seems like a good bet for moderates...rooms a bit larger and attractively furnished. Late last night, I was checking out reviews on it from MousePlanet and the feedback was awful!!! 5 hour waits to check in, noisy "paperthin" walls, etc. What's the deal? Has CBR improved dramatically in the past year? This trip is important to us and the "wrong" hotel could really put a damper on it, so I want to do as much research as I can. (And, BTW, thanks for the great photos SeaSpray!!!) Now, if by some unbelievable stroke of luck--or sprinkling of pixie dust--I was able to get an affordable rate at the POLY, my only question there is: what's with the vegetation/mildew smell debate? I have fairly strong allergies to molds/mildews, so this is a crucial question for me. Sorry this is so long, but, you know, sometimes first-timers DO want to try to get it "right" the first time! TIA!!! Karla B.
