For Marathon Weekend I am traveling soley with my sister, who has only been to WDW as an adult twice, and I think has only ever been three times in her whole life.
Her experience with onsite hotels has been, to date, restricted to Pop Century. A really fantastic value resort which I personally love. But I’m looking to plus the hell out of this trip.
At the present time we are booked two nights at POR, and then we move over to AKL-J for two more nights in a 1BR standard (pool) view. I have been stalking the site like you can’t even imagine trying to get us in a standard GDT room, but it seems like everyone and their sisters are traveling that weekend and all that has been left are king rooms and suited. And really at this point those appear to be sold out as well.
I keep finding offers for the following resorts/views. Are any of them worth the (significant) price increase to plus this out for her (ahem, yes, strictly for her, not at all for me). Note that the increase would be my treat (as is the DVC portion of the stay). It will just about double the current hotel cost, but business has been booming and in many ways I feel we deserve it.
- Beach Club Standard View Deluxe Studio
- Poly Standard View (hotel side)
- Riviera Standard View Deluxe Studio
Or should I just leave well enough alone and enjoy (my first) stay at POR, woods view?
