[QUOTE=llama;1013545]The thing is…every resort at WDW has such a huge flow of guests that you are bound to get mixed reviews and things will take some wear and tear.
We recently stayed at OKW - our favourite resort - and although everything was sparkling clean - it’s beginning to show it’s age too. I think that can be said of all the older WDW resorts, POR included. The Poly gets mixed reviews too. I wouldn’t let it worry you too much.[/QUOTE]
I always take the reviews with an grain of salt because some people are just too picky and some just like to complain, but I have never noticed so many bad reviews amongst a lot of different boards. That is what started to worry me. I am not picky.
Usually, we don’t even have mousekeeping in every day, because we pick up after ourselves. But I do want it clean and not too much wear and tear to make it feel run down. I look through “magic” goggles in WDW and can look past a lot, just not dirt. One of my kids will have to sleep on the trundle bed at POR and I want the floor clean when they are going to be that close to it.
We can afford to stay at the Poly but, like anyone else, I like to save where I can. POR never felt like you were “settling” for a moderate. Since we were planning so many other things this time, MNSSHP, Petty Driving School for DH, Cirque du Soleil, I figured that POR would save a few bucks.
With all of the raves about the Poly, now I think I want to try it, even if POR is perfect. I like the transportation conveniences and a larger room. You have all given me much food for thought.
