    Is shuttle service for the deluxe resorts better than the value resorts? Thinking about staying at the POLY this time and wondering if it is worth the extra $$$$ since not all parks are on the monorail.

    Julia this is a common question we get from guests.  The deluxe resorts are more costly to stay at but it is primarily due to their close proximity to the parks and added amenities.  The monorail resorts obviously are very near to the Magic Kingdom while the Yacht and Beach Club resorts as well as the Boardwalk resort are close to EPCOT.  All resorts use the same bus system to get around.  The value resorts comprise of the most rooms on site and therefore they will see the most bus traffic since it is the only way to get to the parks.  For this reason many feel the buses do not run as often or as efficiently but it is merely because of the numbers.

    The Polynesian is a great resort with a wonderful pool facility and being right on the water you will have many recreational opportunities at your finger tips.  You can reach the Magic Kingdom via monorail or water ferry and also reach EPCOT using the monorail.  If you plan on spending any sort of time at your resort you will enjoy the deluxe choices!
