I can't get excited about any of the Monorail Hotels. The Contemporary doesn't do a thing for me. The Grand Floridian while beautiful just seems a little too stuffy. (We do enjoy visiting in the late afternoons and listening to the band and the piano player tho.). I've read many comments about the Poly being people's chance to visit a "Hawaiian" style hotel. We're from California and are fortunate enough to go to Maui yearly, so why do a substitute Hawaii when you can do the real one?
We've been coming to WDW for years. So far we've stayed at:
Beach Club, Beach Club Villas, Caribbean Beach, Port Orleans (both Riverside and French Quarter), Pop, All Star Sports, Saratoga Springs, Old Key West, Coronado Springs, & Wilderness Lodge Villas.
But the way to do it is to rent DVC points. We are staying in a Boardwalk Studio Villa in May for about $200 cheaper than a stay at POFQ, our go to resort.likely any of the deluxe or villas. We just are not resort people. To us its just a bed to flop in. Maybe as we start going more for short trips, resort time will mean more, but right now were open to close people, so why pay for a room i wont be in.
I'll third that. I'm sure the camp grounds are better than I'm imagining, but I just can't think of spending all day walking around and spending my evenings camping. More power to those who like it though!I'd second that. This is probably one resort I wouldn't stay at even if I had the money.
