Thanks to all that answered my previous post. We decided we are going to go to WDW from Aug 14-17th. We are going to re-new our seasonals. We do not go enough to justify the annual pass cost. We will just work around the black-out dates vs school schedule. I am in S Florida and my ds starts school on Aug 18th. So this will be a nice ending to his summer vacation.
We have narrowed down the resort choice to either the Polynesian, gardenview room or the Yacht Club. The Beach Club was not available for those dates. Our agent at Magical Journeys found us a AAA rate at Polynesian. We made the reservation at the Poly so we wouldnt lose the rate if that is definitely where we are staying. We have until 7/2/08 to decide.The difference in price between the Poly and Yacht Club is $150.
So here is what I read and have been told:
Yacht Club has incredible pool and I alot more hot tubs then the Poly
Yacht Club has a daybed that is very narrow.
Poly has a couch that flips open to a twin bed (a plus in case the grandparents join us on the 2nd night).
Poly rooms are bigger.
Poly has good restaurants/food
Yacht Club food is “okay”
Poly has monorail access…major plus if it is as hot as we expect it. Easy to go to the hotel for a swim and then back to the park.
So what are your opinions on the two hotels? Which would you pick and why? Any other pros/cons I should know before picking?
Here are a couple of more questions:
Can you rent those little speed boats from Poly? Yacht Club?
How is the pool at Poly? Nice enough to spend a few hours at ?
Food at both…your opinion…
Best building location to request at Poly? We like to be near the restaurants, and transportation center. We also like to be in a short walking distance to the pool.
Best Building location for Yacht Club?
Cant wait to see your answers…THANKS!
