[QUOTE=PeterMac;961231]Honestly I don’t think you can go wrong either way. I had no transportation issues when I stayed at WL, and I loved the resort. On the other hand, I think it’s hard to beat the convenience of a monorail resort. I guess it comes down to how you evaluate the price difference – for myself, I would stay at WL.[/QUOTE]
I’ve already posted that WL and Contemporary are my personal favorites and we’ve stayed at WL more times than Contemporary, mostly because of price.
In a couple weeks we’ll be staying at the Contemporary (my birthday) but in the garden wing instead of the tower, just to cut the cost down to size. Recently, AP rates were released and I could have stayed in the tower for about the same money as I was originally spending for the wing, but I still decided to go with the wing and save $200 for three days and keep my fingers crossed that when I check in, the CM will have mercy on me and upgrade us to the tower because after all, it is my birthday.
If not, I’ll be just as happy overlooking the pool from the second floor instead of the MK from the 11th.
And tangentially, given a choice of AKL or WL, I choose WL because it’s on Bay Lake and has a marina and I just love taking out a Sea Raycer and tearing it up in front of the MK on a crowded Saturday afternoon.
