Hi everyone! Im a lurker and this is my first post. Im hoping to get some advice on where to stay. My fiance and I are going to spend a few days at Disney this summer (late June/early July). We went last summer and stayed at the Grand Floridian-Concierge. It was an amazing trip (especially since he proposed at MGM! ) but we decided to try a new resort this time. Considerations: 1) The main parks well be visiting are the Animal Kingdom and Epcot. Any additional time will be spent at our tried-and-true Magic Kingdom and MGM (Hollywood Studios now, I guess cant quit get used to that). 2) Being close is kind of important. I hate the buses, so being a monorail ride or a boat ride away from a park would be nice. 3) The place has to be kind of nice. Im worried about being disappointed as the two other times Ive stayed have both been at the Grand Floridian. I have definitely ruled out the Contemporary (I ate at their rooftop place once and wasnt feeling the building). Id consider a resort in the Moderate category, maybe. Ive thought of the Polynesian and the Animal Kingdom Lodge. I love that the Polynesian is on the monorail line, but Im from Hawaii and the tropical theme doesnt excite me as much as some of the other properties. I love the theme of the Animal Kingdom Lodge, but am worried about being so far away from everything except the Animal Kingdom. Im open to other properties as well! Were a young couple in our 20s. Pools arent important. I was also wondering if I should consider concierge again. We never really used any of the concierge's offerings on our last trip (didn't eat the free food or make reservations through them). Nightly turndown service was nice, but I don't really think that's worth the price. I did see that concierge guests at the Animal Kingdom Lodge could book a special safari, though. Looking forward to any suggestions you all might have.
