    We've only stayed onsite once and that was at the Poly. I have always wanted to stay there and we got a good AP rate It was a nice experience, but would I pay the money to do it again ............ sadly no

    I might be tempted to try the GF at some stage though it seems much more relaxed and peaceful

    We normally stay off site in a house or condo. I much prefer the flexibility of being able to stay at home and eat Get up in the morning and sit by the pool eating breakfast. Not being stuck on one room.

    I just find it a lot more relaxing









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Our first two times were in a villa on Sunridge Woods in Davenport, then the first two times with the children we stayed at All Star Movies, then last year we stayed at Port Orleans Riverside. Next year we will be staying at our DVC resort in the Animal Kingdom Villas and then going back to POR for a few days.

    We loved ASMo especially when the kids were younger and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, but POR last year was gorgeous, I loved the resort, it was so peaceful and I loved being able to get the boat to DTD in the evening.

    I wouldn't stay off site again as I love being in the middle of it all too much

    We stayed offsite once, for about 10minutes at travelodge main gate east the very first time at disney. It was smelly and icky. We'd only got there about 10pm but I called all star movies which was the only hotel name I knew at disney and they said they had room! so we called a taxi and left. It was brilliant to check into all stars because after main gate east it was like a 7star hotel

    Let's see which ones we've stayed at...

    all star movies
    all star music
    pop century
    Coronado springs
    port orleans riverside
    po french quarter
    Wilderness lodge
    polynesian
    Grand Floridian
    Contemporary
    Animal Kingdom Lodge
    Yacht Club
    Swan/dolphin
    Wyndham palace (buena vista palace)

    I feel like I'm missing a couple but anyway. I think they all have something special going for them. There isn't a single one I wouldnt go back to, including the value resorts.

    I guess my favourites well the Wilderness lodge is such a missed treasure. It's cheaper than the mk monorail resorts but is so peaceful and nicely themed. It has a great christmas theme, two restaurants and a boat across to MK. Unlike some of the others, it doesn't have outside buildings like motel types, it's all in one which is better IMHO.

    AKL is a similar design and although further out, the whole african theme really works great. I'll always remember being there height of summer, the music piped through the resort and even at the bus stop. Really has a special feeling all to itself.

    Contemporary is a bit hustle/bustle but it's SO great for mk! to be able to forget the busses/boats and just walk to and from the MK is great.

    In short, I like em all

    Should add though, I'd like to try a villa one day for the extra space and relaxation

    Wilderness Lodge was our first experience of staying on-site and we loved it. Then went to Caribbean Beach which was also great, Coronado Springs was the next one and the dining situation put me off that and finally we found the Beach Club. I love this hotel, so close to Epcot, one of my favourite parks, easy walking to Disney Studios, great pools, great food, just love everything about it.

    I agree with you there Debbie, I was very disappointed with the Yacht club, especially for all that money
