If we can’t stay at the Polynesian, where should we stay?
Background: We’re trying to rent DVC points for a stay at the Poly next November, but so far the DVC rental store hasn’t come through with any availability yet (sob!), and I’m getting worried we’re going to get shut out from other options if we wait too long.
This year we stayed at the YC and really loved it; the year before we stayed at the GF and liked that too. I’d want to stay somewhere new, probably — I’m intrigued by WL and AKL, especially since y’all seem to rave about both. But I’m also open to BLT, if only for the super easy access to MK, especially after the fireworks (HEA is my favorite thing at Disney, hands down).
Talk to me about the transportation from WL — Is it a pain to get to? Also, is the walk to the monorail annoying if we were to rent DVC in Bay Lake Tower? How bad is the pool, really, at the CR? Our priorities are ease of access (my travel buddy has somewhat limited energy and mobility), nice atmosphere, fun theming, and I do like a good pool. I was spoiled by YC this year…
We are obsessed with the tiki drinks at Trader Sam’s, so I think we’ll want to go there at least twice, which makes me think BLT might be the right choice… What say you, wise Disney friends??
