Although I’m a long time lurker, I have only just recently registered so that I can actually post stuff. This is such a great site!
I’m seeking some advice from those of you who have stayed at both the Poly and the CR in a tower room. My DH, DD (who will be a couple of weeks shy of 3 years old), and I will be making a trip to the World the week after Thanksgiving, and are wondering where we should stay. We made a trip at the same time last year and stayed at the GF in the main building, which was absolutely heaven on earth. We would just stay at the same hotel this time, but my husband and I would really like to experience all of the hotels at least once. We also want to be at a monorail resort because, as many of you know, it really does help make things a lot easier when you’re traveling with a toddler!
What I am most concerned about is the quality of the rooms. Hubby and I save all year to go on a great vacation, and we really like to be pampered and stay in gorgeous rooms (I think that, for me, this stems from the fact that I am one of 11 kids, and the best my wonderful parents, bless their hearts, could ever afford was a Motel 6 – and hey, I’m not complaining, we were lucky to get to go anywhere with that many kids in the family!!). What do you all think of the quality of the rooms at both the CR and the Poly? Will we be disappointed in either since we stayed most recently at the GF? Before our daughter was born, we stayed at Port Orleans (didn’t like it) and Dixie Landings (both Alligator Bayou and Magnolia Bend, and loved both of them – did I get those names right?), before they were merged into one resort.
So what do you think – Poly or CR tower room (I don’t think my daughter would do well with all the walking required to stay in a garden room)? If you think the Poly is the right choice, what building would you recommend we request? Although we loved staying in the main building at the GF, we probably would not want to do concierge again because we really didn’t use the services or the lounge at all, except for breakfast. We really only cared that we were in the main building because it made it easier to get our daughter to the monorail.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
