If pricing was essentially the same between the Grand Floridian and Poly? which you choose to stay at and why?
Personally I would go with the Poly (unless it was Christmas). I like the choices for every day dining (and I can walk to GF for a signature experience). I love the Oasis Pool at Poly and walking to the TTC.
Curious…why would your answer be different if it was Christmas?
GF is beautiful at Christas! It has full size gingerbread house in the lobby and a towering tree! Poly does not have the same feel.
If price is identical, I’d go GF. While I really like the Poly, the GF felt a little more special for some reason. We were at the GF in December though so that Xmas feel might be part of my answer. The GF is only 1 monorail hop to the MK and you can take the boat back and it’s first stop so it’s a little quicker to/from the MK. Poly is better for Epcot access of course. The GF does have a grand/posh feel (like the band in the main area) that is fun to experience and you feel just a little more pampered than at the Poly…
