    Having a difficult time deciding between AKL, Grand Floridian, and the Polynesian! Help?

    Hi Rachel!

    I absolutely love all of the resorts at Walt Disney World (WDW)! i can help you decide which resort is best for you for your upcoming trip.

    I love the Polynesian because it's close to the Magic Kingdom and it's the only WDW resort that has monorail service to both Magic Kingdom and Epcot. The food at Polynesian is great, especially 'Ohana. You can even get a Dole Whip at this resort. The best place to view the fireworks in all of WDW is on the beach of The Polynesian. The pool is also the best!

    The Grand Floridian is luxurious and it feels decadent. You can eat at Narcoosee's and even see the Electrical Water Pageant from the balcony. Victoria & Albert's is a five-star restaurant and arguably the best restaurant throughout all of WDW. This wonderful restaurant is right there in the resort. You can also enjoy tea at the Garden Tea Room. This resort is also home to Senses, an amazing spa.  

    Animal Kingdom Lodge is a bit further away from the parks, but has a great atmosphere. Saana and Boma are great with exotic flavors. If you get a room with a view of the savannah, you won't want to leave! You can actually see animals out your window.
