    Hey folks

    Hope you don't mind but I thought I'd get your opinions on this...

    We're staying in WDW for 17 nights in April/May this year. We've got 14 nights at POFQ and 2 at AKL - however, due to a mix up between the two of us planning, we've not currently got somewhere for the last night. We thought it might be fun to try a different hotel..as it's our last night. We're balancing our thoughts on cost, location, ease of not moving, variety, etc. Oh btw, we're two adult female friends...no kids - and we don't fly home til the evening of the last day, so have a full day then too. So, if you could chose your last night would you go for:

    1) AKL - as we're already there
    2) Wilderness Lodge - looked lovely
    3) Coronado Springs
    4) Caribbean Beach Resort - because it appealed
    5) All Stars Movies - cheaper and different
    6) Pop - which we've stayed at before and had lots of fun
    or
    7) PO Riverside

    All opinions gratefully received!
    Thanks :)

    I would choose to stay at AKL. Who wants the hassle of moving all your stuff again. Stay there and enjoy your last couple of days!:)

    If you are looking for a total change of pace, I'd stay at the Caribbean Beach Resort. The theming is tropical/beach. The resort is really lovely. Each village has their own quiet pool and beach, complete with hammocks and beach chairs. The food court has a nice selection of foods to choose from.

    It would be a total change from Port Orleans and Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    Here's my ordering...
    1)Wilderness Lodge - it really is amazing!
    2)AKL - Avoid the moving hassle and it is beautiful
    3)CBR - Lush and beautiful, nicely themed (we prefer Aruba and Jamaica)
    4)CSR - Great pool!
    5)POP - Our absolute favorite value stay

    We haven't stayed at POR, so we can't comment, but we're not really crazy about the All Stars.

    Enjoy your stay regardless of where you end up:thumbsup2

    It's a long way to come from the UK so we kinda go big style when we travel to WDW. Most brits go for 2 weeks. Must admit I'm SOOOOOOO excited!

    Thanks for all the feedback everyone :)

    We LOVE the CBR. The place is lovely to walk around and the food court is nice. But, it is no AKL. 2 nights at AKL isn't that much, and if you have time to sit, have a drink & try Jiko, that might make your last night special.

    I'd either stay at AKL or go to CBR. Have fun... 17 days... how fabulous!!!:goodvibes

    I would stay at AKL....

    I really think you need a good 3 nights somewhere to get the real
    "feel" of the place....
    Have a great trip
