    Hello moms and dads!! I am planning my next trip to WDW. Its just me and my wife. We want great dining, and ease of commuting, just an amazing atmosphere. I am torn between the convinence of the Polynesian, and the AKL. Which do you think is better for us?

    Hi there, Summer!

    Bearing in mind that this is my opinion, I will throw a couple of ideas your way.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom is definitely atmospheric! The decor is outstanding, and of course, you're immersed in a safari-like atmosphere. If you choose to upgrade, you'll have unparalleled views of animals roaming the grounds.

    Disney's Polynesian Resort is equally as gorgeous, and creates a paradise with tropical landscaping. authentic architecture, and the spirit of Disney history, being such a long-time Resort.

    There's world-class dining at each Resort - both 'Ohana at the Polynesian and Boma at Animal Kingdom are favorites.

    But one thing you said really stood out, and that might be the tipping point: "convenience." If, as you say, "ease of commuting" is important, then I would strongly recommend the Polynesian, based solely on that criterion - all things being equal. With Magic Kingdom and Epcot a quick monorail trip away - and being on the monorail line - you'll find easy access to all of the Parks and other destinations in the World.

    Again, you can't go wrong either way, but if proximity is your goal, then the answer would have to be the Polynesian.

    Have a great stay!

    See you later, celebrator,
