I have been doing endless agonizing over our upcoming trip. I am one that hates putting all of my eggs in one basket-especially when things come up to ruin your very carefully planned trip, like horrible weather or a very sick child. I don't want to deplete my vacation fund on one trip because what if I really "need" to get away again (don't want to do the credit card thing), so I've been crunching numbers for days-I know there are those who can relate and those who don't have to crunch numbers and can splurge away. This is particularly for those of us who crunch- my overall best value on property was .... WL woods view Some might say the moderates in terms of amenities, but I was considering many factors and a "jaw-dropping "WOW" factor upon arrival" was one of the criteria. WL definitely has that. I chose WL because of: Theming You do feel in the middle of the disney magic, without being overun with foot traffic it does have a quiet pool (unlike AKL) deluxe amenities activities in and around the lodge-too numerous to list short walk or surry bike ride or boat ride to FW-free petting zoo and pony ride for $3, free campfire/movies EWP overall ambience smallness of resort (not too much walking) con could be: transportation, BUT the boat to MK,FW, and CR (for Chef Mickey's) are very nice and the bus to AK only stops at the GF (on the way) It is the first bus stop at AK and you get dropped off and picked up first. rooms- small, 4 max,could have more of a deluxe decor, but it does fit the theming very well. I picked woods view because it the cheapest (did lots of numbers crunching like I said) room at any deluxe without having to look at a parking lot or roof (yuck). I consider view to be very important when you have a balcony.We actually saw fireworks from the MK from our room and we were only on the second floor. For parents with little ones who want a nice vacation with lots to do, but don't have a lot of money to spend, WL woods view is my personal pick!
