    We have stayed at all the value resorts and love them but as my kids grow we really like our resort amenities too. Last year we stayed at poly and LOVED it. Trying to decide if we should try something new DS 9 & 13 we did not like CBR (too big)????

    Hi, Danelle!

    I totally understand why your family loves Disney's Polynesian Resort! It's one of my favorites, too! You will find similar amenities among Disney's Deluxe Resorts. The differences are in the specific theming (the overall "feel" and style), location and dining options. If you really enjoyed your stay at the Polynesian last year, I would encourage you to stick with that choice for your upcoming vacation.

    That being said, if you are interested in experiencing another resort, I would suggest either Animal Kingdom Lodge or Yacht Club. My family are big fans of Animal Kingdom Lodge because of the uniqueness of this resort - the authentic architecture, incredible African wildlife savanna viewing, and the wonderful table-service restaurants. Also, can enjoy either the Uzima Pool at Jambo House or Samawati Springs Pool next door at Kidani Village. Yacht Club is also a great resort choice for its proximity to Epcot (just a short walk to the International Gateway entrance) and to all the restaurants and entertainment available on the nearby boardwalk, as well as for the Stormalong Bay swimming complex. 

    Another thing to consider is your vacation itinerary. You'll want to base your choice of resort on its location and proximity to the theme parks you'll be visiting most often during your stay. You really can't go wrong with any of Disney's Deluxe Resorts! I would suggest checking out the photos and descriptions of the Deluxe Resorts on the Walt Disney World website to get a better idea of which one would be the best fit for your family's interests and vacation style.

    Wishing you a magical vacation, Danelle! Please let me know if I can answer any other questions as you plan your trip.
