Hi! You DISers helped me plan an AMAZING 20th anniversary trip at New Year's 2008, so I was thrilled to find that there's a UO subforum! I am a true blue Polynesian-resort girl, but my daughter really wants to go to HP World at UO and my husband likes to try new things, so... reluctantly, I have agreed that we can go to the darkside. I'm hoping y'all can point me in the right direction as far as where to stay. I love two things about the Poly: 1) The atmosphere -- relaxed, tropical, special 2) The proximity to WDW -- walking distance to TTC, boat trans, view across lagoon, view of fireworks at night Which of the on-site hotels at UO do you think most closely replicate those experiences? I'm going to suggest that we split the stay -- 2-3 days at UO, 2-3 days at WDW. Is that workable? A huge pain? Easier if we rent a car? We plan to go for our 25th wedding anniversary -- New Year's 2013 -- so I definitely want to be able to see some fireworks!
