    That's good to know. Thank you. Every time we go I try to learn how to make it better for next time. Our last trip was a 2 bedroom at Boardwalk Villas which I'm repeating for our next trip the week Pandora opens, but I do miss club level rooms when they're convenient and I can actually use the lounge. We don't eat much there but it's nice to have coffee always ready as well as other beverages and the occasional quick bite.

    The Contemporary doesn't really appeal to me. Not my style. I like Contemporary styles but that one seems cold.

    Yes, the lounge was awesome when our youngest was a toddler. We figured we saved a lot of money just by being able to get as much milk as we needed. ;)

    The pool is boring. That's what bugs me the most about it. I think it would be perfect for a 2-3 night pre cruise winter trip, when it's too cold to swim.

    The only club level stay I would do now is Animal Kingdom Lodge. Only because of the food offerings and the guaranteed Arusha view. But AKL would also be a very short stay only when we do it...and even with that I still go back and forth. It just seems so far away!

    Yes, it is, but the never ending chocolate croissants for breakfast were amazing! :hungry:

    I had TPV Atrium Club level booked for 2 weeks last Spring but then for some reason I came to my senses and paid off my car instead. I'm still kind of sad about it.

    Never stayed there for that reason. We have eaten there and it is really pretty.

    I think you made the right choice!! The Contemporary isn't going anywhere!

    It's the only deluxe that I never even consider. I know some people adore it but I just can't get past how far it is from everything else. I'm hooked on either the Epcot area or a monorail resort. The only exception really is that I like Wilderness Lodge at Christmas when there's no construction.

    I downgraded from TPV at GF to Lagoon View about a month before our trip.. was trying to reign in the spending.. I worried and regretted it up until arrival.. LUCKILY, we could still see MK!! Best decision I made!'

    @MySmallWorldof4 here's Poly right now for July.

    Their price points are so strange to me. Why would anyone choose GV club level over Standard TPV?
    Or maybe that's just my own weirdness...lol

    Because some people think they can turn club level into a bargain by packing 5 people in the room and then getting 90% of their food from the lounge.

    I'm new here but I've come across enough of your posts to know that you'll understand what I mean when I say that sometimes I have a hard time stopping myself from trying to cram as much fun as possible into my son's early years.

    I definitely understand that!! We do still have to be reasonable though.. or at least I try to be. I really lucked out with my GF room, I like to think of it as good karma for making the financially wise decision.lol
