We need a vacation. :laugh:
I’ve been comparing prices all afternoon, trying to come up with the best possible deal.
Now, the question is what to book. GF is the most expensive of the options, of course, but it’s the least expensive monorail resort for the time we plan to go (March 12-16). We’ve already stayed there and love it, so we know it’s a good choice. We’ve stayed in the Epcot area before, and the convenience is great. Boardwalk/Beach Club/Yacht Club are the next most expensive choices. We’ll have to choose from those eventually, but I’m looking at price range and location at the moment. Then there’s the Wilderness Lodge. It’s in the Magic Kingdom area, which is handy, but not on the monorail loop… never stayed there, but I have dined at Artist Point, and the resort is beautiful. However, it did take a while to catch the water launch from MK. Less expensive is AKL. We would not get a savannah view. I’m not crazy about this option because of the location, but I can’t deny that it’s the best price. Saratoga is also available for even less than AKL, but it’s also in a not-so-convenient location, and we have been spoiled by the monorail.
We plan to go back for my birthday (Thanksgiving) to use up the other six days on our 10-day no expiration pass (:laugh: I compared all of them, and this, of course, is our best deal), and I’d like to stay at a Deluxe then. We’ll be there longer and have more time to enjoy the resort, so I’d like to get on the monorail loop.
Would you choose a not-so-convenient resort now and a monorail resort later? Or go ahead and get the convenient resort and take advantage of off-season rates?
Or would you suggest a moderate? We’ve never stayed at a moderate before. My dad and sister are deluxe snobs, but I wouldn’t mind downgrading if I can go to WDW.
Don’t freak… I am not booking a vacation without my parents’ permission. I’m just trying to extablish my side and know what information to put out there which is where you MBers come in.
Thanks bunches, and so sorry for the long thread!
