Working on my next vacation for September 2019. Going with just my DS6. My DS10 got to go alone with me when he was 7, and DS6 will be about a month shy of his 7th birthday. Been talking to MVT about discounts. I’ll spare you all the details about why I was looking at such a large range, but I’m trying to decide between Wilderness Lodge and Pop. Obviously, one is a Deluxe and one is a Value, so I get that. The reason I’m hesitating is location. I read in the Unofficial Guide that some people have complained about the length of rides from WL to DHS or EP. I stayed at the Polynesian in 2012 and don’t remember those rides being that long. Meanwhile, Pop is pretty centrally located.
I agree that WL will be nicer and I’m worried that Pop’s theming will be somewhat lost on my son, but the biggest concern is the relative isolation of WL from all parks except MK.
Can someone who has stayed there recently shed some light on any issues they may have had with the length of the rides (not necessarily the wait times for buses).
