I've been going over this in my head a millions times and I'm at a complete loss on where to stay! We (DBF and I) are currently booked with a bounceback offer at POR in a King Bed room for aug 26-sept 1st. This trip is for my birthday and he keeps telling me to book where I want to stay. I REALLY want to stay deluxe but the only 2 we can manage are WL and AKL. I love both resorts (and POR), but to upgrade to deluxe would be an extra $300 minimum (AKL savannah is out, too expensive. Looking at WL woods view or AKL pool view.) As far as parks go, we are taking it easy since its August and we have already had 2 commando-esque trips this year. We are doing the Wild Africa Trek and are most likely spending quite a bit more time at DAK than we usually do as a result. No dining plan, paying OOP (We're AP holders). My major concern is spending that extra money just on the hotel. We generally are Moderate/Value people, but we've stayed deluxe before and have loved it. I'm just having trouble justifying the extra cost just because I want to stay there. Thoughts? Any and all opinions are welcome! TIA!
