    YOU WILL. Kidani Village was our first deluxe too (rented points), and we are totally spoiled now :joyfull:. But it's ok, it'll be worth it! Hope you have the best time!

    We have progressed from Value to Mod to Deluxe and I will tell you it is very hard to go back.
    In March 2016 we stayed off property at DLR at a Sheraton
    We have stayed at the Grand Californian for the previous 5 stays.
    You should have heard the whining, complaining, moaning, crying, etc.
    And that was just from me!!!!!!

    Thanks!! I do believe i'll be renting lots of points in my future :happy:

    We have stayed at both moderates and values, our trip this past summer we decided to stay at a value again. Well, I don't think I'll be staying at one again. It was a very nice trip but going back to a value was an eye opener. I also had moments of whining and moaning. :)

    Finally got a chance to comment. So excited for you! Your trip sounds like so much fun. We loved AKL. It is such a beautiful resort. Can't wait to read your thoughts.

    I never gave my poor wallet a chance. First time I took my wife (then girlfriend), we stayed at Yacht Club, Club Level. I created a Disney snob monster. Just seeing the long lines at the All Star bus stop at MK on a crowded night is enough to prompt her to tell me that she would rather save up for as long as it took to stay at a Deluxe before having to deal with that.

    I love the snobby Disney monster I have created, but it comes at a price. Damn $13 Orange Mango Fire Margaritas at La Cava!!!!:greedy::arghh::D

    I have created an entire family of snobby Travel monsters.
    It no longer is contained to Disney resorts and now applies to every overnight stay
    We grab a park and fly and it has to be a "good" (read: expensive) hotel.

    We are all mad scientists!!! I just look at my wife and tell her, (in my Darth Sidius voie) "Good, Good, let the snob flow through you!"

    Your trip sounds awesome. I have promised my boyfriend that our next trip will be a more relaxed one. I have a really hard time relaxing when I'm not in Disney so this will be a tough promise to keep... I just need to convince him to go on a longer trip next time so we can get the best of both worlds!

    I can't wait to hear more about your trip! Happy planning!

    I totally understand what your saying. When I first brought up the idea to J I was really hoping to spent two days at the parks because who can go to Disney and not go to MK! Unfortunately J had a request of no MK!! :eek: We did throw around the idea of going to Epcot for F&W also, but in the end all the talk of relaxing and soaking in all other things at Disney really got us excited about just visiting AK and taking it easy. Now I'm all excited again tonight!!:joyfull:

    WHAT?! Magic Kingdom IS Disney to me! I guess everyone has their own Disney style though and I'm glad you both will be able to enjoy this trip and the more relaxed approach to WDW. I hope to learn from you and do the same someday.

    MK can be crazy busy
    We have been shifting our time from MK to Epcot/DHS/AK as the girls grew from grade school to high school to now university age.
    I can see why you want a relaxing, soaking it all in , only AK trip.

    LOL.. I know!! It is so hard imagining taking a trip to Disney and not walking down Main Street. Hopefully I won't have a breakdown while I'm there from not going to MK.

    I'm still a little in shock of how excited I am for a short, one park trip. Maybe it's the diet I'm on and I'm excited about all the new food options were going to try. :D

    I have never done a short / 1 park trip to WDW. ( as you know I did TDR as a short trip but never the World)
    It has always been 7 to 8 days of Disney and sometimes Uni/SeaWorld where we must go to all 4 theme parks at least once.
    I am looking forward to reading your report, hearing about all the great non park stuff you will do and to know your thoughts/reflections when it is all done.

    Normally I would say get a rental car cause AKL is in the middle of nowhere... but with all the drinking you have planned the bus might be the best option.
