I've been mulling this over and over and over. I'm going to start bleeding out of my ears soon. We are going to WDW in January. I can't decide between POR or the Poly. We have never stayed at a deluxe, but always wanted too. I have the money for either. But we always weigh what's worth it, and what's not when we spend it. Our kids will be 16, 12 and 5 at time of travel. Can anyone talk me in to or out of one? It's another 2,000 for us to stay at Poly. Things I hate about moderates......when I get up early (5am) to get ready I wake everyone else. I hate having the vanity area only covered by a curtain. Another thing, we are driving our own car. It would be nice to jump on a monorail instead of drive/park/tram.....every.single. day. Other than that.......moderates are completely suitable to me. I don't mind the smallness of the rooms too much. And POR has great pools, and entertainment for the kids. I'm hoping if we do stay at POR that I can get Magnolia Bend. Alligator Bayou is kinda busy to me. NMS. We stayed at POFQ last time (liked it just fine with the exceptions posted above). And before that, the values......hate those. I think Alligator Bayou reminds me a bit of them I guess. Thank you for your input.
