    Thinking about Disney in Nov. Have stayed at POR and loved it . Wondering if the Deluxe AKL is worth it, or should we stick with what we know and love.

    Hi Christine - I've stayed at both resorts.  Personally, I think that if you can afford to stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge, you would love it!  It's beautiful, has a great lounge, two amazing restaurants, a beautiful pool, and of course, the savanna views!  I'm not sure if you are traveling with children, but my children absolutely loved seeing the animals right outside our room.

    However, if you already love Port Orleans Riverside, it's definitely less expensive, so sticking with that is a great option also!  It comes down to whether you are looking for a change and if you are willing to spend the extra money.
