    Congratulations!

    We celebrated our honeymoon at Port Orleans French Quarter and loved it! Smaller, intimate, romantic...

    I would have loved to do Grand Floridian though!

    Thank you! this is exactly what I wanted to hear. Im looking at more and more pictures... and your right.. it does look outdated. I saw a few "Deluxe" rooms with a better look sadly.

    Now Im back to square one. Not a bad thing, I have alot of you to thank! I realllly dont want to mess this up. You only do this once!

    MK view room at BLT is a very good idea. I think that would be a awesome way to start each day and end every night looking at the castle.
    Budget:
    I would like to keep the budget for the room at around $3,000 for 6 days. Give or take depending how nice the room is.

    Where do I find info about this? This sounds really cool. The WL was my first choice, but it just seems too expensive for a savana view...


    Thank you guys so much.

    My DH and I stayed at CSR for our Disneymoon in April. It was awesome. We weren't in our room very long (well, one late morning because DH got sick from Yachtman's Steakhouse), so we really didn't miss any amenities. We came "home" to our king bed and just crashed. We were up and in the parks before we could really take in anything. :lmao:

    My dream resort is either Boardwalk or Poly. One day... when the kid is grown up... :goodvibes

    This! My husband and I honeymooned in a Beach Blub 1 bedroom villa and it was heavenly! :lovestruc

    Loved being able to walk to a bunch of great restaurants on the Boardwalk (Flying Fish ftw!), walking to Epcot, boat to Hollywood Studios, and Stormalong Bay! Hubby and I spent HOURS holding hand while floating on the sand bottom lazy river!

    Many people rent there DVC points. They can be rented from dis-board users on these forums or though companies like David's Rentals. Here is their link:

    I am not recommending them as I have never used them but I have heard many positive reviews. Usually points rent for between $10-$12 dollars per point.

    We didn't go to Disney for our honeymoon, but if we did, I'd love to stay savannah view at AKL. If you could swing a one bedroom there- OMG that would be heaven! :love: DH and I just stayed at a studio in the Jambo house in Oct and it was so romantic!

    I think that the room has a really romantic, exotic feel (more so than the Poly or WL), and seeing animals on your balcony was just amazing! We had mimosas and breakfast out on our balcony and it was just incredible to watch the zebras!

    If your wife is an animal lover, I don't think you could go wrong with AKL.

    Ahhh...so exciting! Congratulations! We honeymooned at Disney 8 years ago for our hm. It was my DH first Disney trip ever. We've been there 6 more times since. :rotfl2:

    We stayed at All-Star Sports because we wanted to stay longer so we had to go for a cheaper hotel. I hope every moment of your honeymoon is magical!

    Anywhere on Property is a thousand times better than off because you can use the extra magic hours and their transportation system.

    When staying at AKL, I love sitting in their huge rocking chairs around the fire.

    Great choice! If you want the resort thread, click on the picture in my signature. If you have questions, feel free to zip over to the DVC section of the DIS and ask away.

    At SSR, you can request a specific area. We like the Congress Park (CP) area, which is located closest to DTD (can walk there and balcony views face the waterfront). However, CP is a bit of a walk to the Springs section, which has the lobby, main pool, and restaurants. If you have questions about it, it is frequently asked on the DVC boards.

    Congrats, BTW! :thumbsup2
