So, We were having an interesting conversation at work in which a co-worker asked why we like to stay at the GF for only 6 or 7 nights when we could stay at POR for 11 or 12 nights at about the same cost? It got me thinking why people choose to make the resort decisions they do. So, here is my answer: My wife and I like the GF for a few reasons. One, we LOVE the magic Kingdom and our second favorite is Epcot. If we totally skip AK and spend half a day at MGM (holleywood) we are ok, but will go to the MK 6 or 7 times. Two, our favorite thing to do is to sit on the balcony at night, watch the castle change colors, and listen to the music from MK. I guess that is why. I wish I could do those things from another non-deluxe resort...but Disney is smart there and will never let that happen.
