[QUOTE=Dana;1127089]I have stayed at Wilderness. You are going to love it. I love the boat ride over to the Magic Kingdom. Advantages? No advantages to staying at the deluxe, just more amenities. Congrats to you for upgrading! You only live once - enjoy your stay.[/QUOTE]
How about LOCATION!
All of the deluxe resorts are the closest resorts to parks. You can walk to Epcot and DHS from any of the 5 hotels on Crescent Lake. You can walk to the MK from the Contemporary. The monorail resorts have the monorail instead of buses to MK and Epcot, and it’s usually quicker than a bus.
Also, none of the deluxe resorts have exterior room entry and they all have balconies instead of a catwalk in front of your room. Don’t forget that they still haven’t put queen beds into all of the mods and none of the values have queens. Queens are standard at the deluxes. Better dining options as well.
[QUOTE=Pam&Rich;1127093] You can also boat hop between the WL and GF, CR, Poly and FW.[/QUOTE]
Well, you can boat hop between the Contemporary, WL and FW. You can take a direct boat to the MK’s port. But if you want to get to the Poly or the GF, you have to take the WL launch to the MK port and change for the Poly/GF launch.
