GF 5/5 We love the gracious atmosphere, beautiful lobby, amazing dining choices, large, comfortable rooms and the feeling of being right in the midst of the magic with the monorail and boat service to MK and great views of the fireworks and the ERP I could write pages on the times GF CMs have gone above and beyond for us whether we were staying RPC TPV CL or in a garden view room at 35% off or not even at the GF, but just dining there. On the subject of dining, whether you're getting QS at Gasparilla's, the character buffet at 1900 Park Fare or signature dining at Narcoosee's, nothing can beat the GF for food. We especially love the lobster salad at Gasparilla's and the scallops at Narcoosee's . For us, the GF is our dream come true. When we were a young couple, we visited WDW and saw he brand new GF. We said,"That's where we'll stay when we bring our child to WDW for the first time." And it was. AKL 5/5 How can you not love a resort where you can look out from your balcony and see a giraffe? AKL gets theming exactly right with its African lobby and grounds. Just walking around the resort and stopping to sit by the firepit is a great experience. We love Boma and Jiko where we celebrated DH's 50th birthday. If you stay CL, the Sunrise Safari is well worth it. WL 4/5 We've only stayed here once because our son has an ASD and super sensitivity to loud noises, so the din from theWhispering Canyon Cafe and the boat launch to MK were too much for him. If the noise were not an issue, there's a lot to like about the WL with its amazing landscaping---what other resort has a geyser--and great pool. Rooms are not spectacular, but they are certainly comfortable enough. We didn't dine here, so I can't speak to the dining options. CSR 3/5 This is the only moderate we've stayed at, so I may be a little spoiled. We liked the grounds and our son loved the feature pool. The rooms were fine. CMs were all very nice. What we didn't like was how spread out everything was and that the theming just made us feel like we were at a Hilton in Phoenix. Also, we found the food court pricey and felt that there was better value at the QS at GF. Poly 2/5 The first we stayed at the Poly, we loved it. We were in a lagoon view room in Samoa and it was great---total Disney magic. On our second stay, we ran the gamut from surly cast members, bad food, a volcano pool so dirty that we emerged from it covered in dead bugs and a crowded and noisy lobby. The only thing I liked was the monorail. Our next stop is BCV this summer.
