We absolutely love to go to the Poly and sit on the terrace next to the pool in the evenings. We get quick service, a Dole whip, and then we move over to Trader Sam's patio and drink until after the fireworks. We take the boat back to wherever we're staying (WL or CR, usually). It's so much fun! We love to mono hop on our down days. We just ride the mono and get off at every stop. Explore the grounds and shops, grab some quick service, desserts and/or drinks, and then move on to the next stop. We've never seen the value resorts and my kids would really like to see AoA, so next week we'll be touring a few resorts whose decor we've been wanting to see. The resorts are half the fun!
