    In your opinion what is the best deluxe hotel/villa hotel for a family of four (two teens)? We dont want to stay @ GF, and price isnta factor. We luv BL/Contemp 4 location/dining, BCR 4 location/pool/atmosphere,Poly 4 atmosphere/location, AKL 4 theme. !!


    Sounds like you already have some great thoughts! I've stayed at The Contemporary and Beach Club Resort. I just covet a night at Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Polynesian!

    But here's my thoughts...

    If you guys are planning on spending time at the resort (swimming, activities, etc.) then your resort is a big decision. You need to factor in the best pool (BCR!) or other activities (there's fishing at the Poly). If you're like me and want to pound the parks all day long, then I'd go for location! location! location! (ie. a monorail resort!)

    If you haven't been to one of the resorts before then, that is your answer! I love staying at a place that I've never been before. That's an adventure in itself.

    If *I* were you I'd go to Animal Kingdom Lodge because I've never been and it's SO breathtaking when you walk in and then when you see zebras and giraffes outside your window? Well, like I said, I covet a night there!

    And like I always say, it hardly matters what you choose because everything is magical at Disney World! :)
