    either the poly or akl for a short stay probably 3-4 night i guess, but saying that all the mod/deluxes look awesome to me

    where do you find the best place to book?

    I tend to book either through a US travel agent that I know or fortunately by using our DVC points.
    It may be worth looking at package holidays Mick. Some of their prices are quite reasonable IMHO seeing as all air fares etc. are included.

    I wasnt WOW'd by the poly. I think although it's nice, it's overrated by many. Each to their own though!

    AKL is really special. I think its charms are lost on some people ;) but I've enjoyed it every time.

    We meant to do that last trip but didn't get round to it. I fancy staying at the Yacht & Beach Club but it's outside our price range at the moment. :sigh;

    Same here. We went there for dinner at Ohana`s with our friends earlier this year and it kinda feels very dark and gloomy to me, but as you say Keith, each to their own.

    i know the hotel isn't all that to look at I'm told, but the surrounding areas like the beach which i think im being drawn to looks awesome

    but saying that i like the look of virtually all the mods and deluxes

    To be honest, I prefer the grand floridian there and the wilderness lodge has a nice quiet beach too. The poly has hammocks and you can watch the water parade/fireworks, but you can do that from the others too and the poly seems to get more crowded.

    The main building theming is nice, I liked the 24hr little food court place but other than that, not my fave.

    I always say to folks, go try and visit the resorts and I see this look... like, "yeah right THATS what we'll do on our holiday, visit hotels" :lol: but it's so worth it it really is!

    Poly, contemporary, Grand floridian, do the monorail tour for those :D

    AKL just go and have a meal at boma. Worth it and spend some time looking around.

    We put off staying at the Polynesian for a long time because we used to travel frequently to Hawaii on business and were afraid that we might be spoiled. Once we stayed there however, we were impressed by the light and airiness of the rooms. HOWEVER, if I had to choose between AKL and the Polynesian I think I would have to choose AKL. There is just something about it as we walk into the lobby that seems to say "I'm Home".
