Looking to take my first trip to WDW next year πŸ˜ƒ! What resort is great for a first timer?

Candace, you seem familiar!!! You are a WDW virgin? - Rob512  756.3 #223 9:08AM
Yes I am, Rob! - Candace  1737.8 #81 9:10AM
My family loves the Value resorts. - purplelooney  10.7 #231 9:13AM
Pop Century is super fun - mcarthy6  426.5 #474 9:51AM
Casa de Uppity. - ManBearPig  417.0 #490 11:42AM
Hahaha - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #42 11:55AM
Is that expensive and chic? 😁 - Candace  1737.8 #81 12:45PM
Very chic from what I've heard. Plus I'm sure he'll give u full run of the fridge and wet bar!!! - ManBearPig  417.0 #490 1:15PM
I'm a sucker for a wet bar! πŸ˜‚ - Candace  1737.8 #81 1:22PM
yeah Im not a fancy disney resort though - UppityEmpress  786.9 #6 7:24PM
Yes I am, Rob! - Candace  1737.8 #81 9:10AM
We could only ever stay in value resorts. But we love them!!! Pop century is our favorite! But art of anamation is opening soon and I look forward to staying there - Schramke  503.7 #13 9:24AM
On a budget? Pop Century. Moderate, caribbean beach. - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #18 9:26AM
I've stayed at value and moderate, but I think the value resorts are more fun!! I'm a kid at heart and they're very kid friendly :) And budget friendly too! - jallysajones  7.5 #292 9:31AM
I agree with jallysajones. We have stayed at several moderates, but I enjoyed Pop Century so much more. - TinkWannaBe  60.7 #93 10:30AM
Candace! When are you going??? - LBChica  2306.0 #54 9:47AM
Either March or April. πŸ˜„ - Candace  1737.8 #81 12:38PM
Yay! Have fun! We'll be taking the kids in October 😊 - LBChica  2306.0 #54 6:20PM
I agree with jallysajones. We have stayed at several moderates, but I enjoyed Pop Century so much more. - TinkWannaBe  60.7 #93 10:30AM
Welcome! I would first decide what your budget for a room is then start researching the Disney website. The Value resorts (where I usually stay) are really nice but on the smaller side. That's ok for me because I'm only in the room to shower & sleep. The moderate resorts have bigger rooms and more amenities. The deluxe resorts are full-throttle. Lol! Check Disney.com & order the planning DVD. That's a huge help in planning. I also check out Allears.net and laughing place.com. Also, you can call the Disney reservation line & talk to a planner to help you out. Hope this helps! - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #17 10:30AM
Another great website I love is wdwinfo.com. Or if you have an iPhone they have a free app wdwmagic. - Schramke  503.7 #13 10:33AM
When are you going? We go during a value time and stay in a moderate. Value resorts don't heat the pools and that's a huge part of our visit so if you go when it's cool out the pool won't be much fun. Also, how many meals will you eat at your resort? Values, Moderates and Deluxe all offer different types of dining. - DizneyGirl  721.9 #7 10:51AM
This first timer (back in 09) stayed at Port Orleans Riverside and loved it and stayed again a few weeks ago. Here is a good site about the place http://www.portorleans.org/ - veronica619  517.7 #372 10:53AM
I usually stay at Port Orleans Riverside and it's very relaxing and quiet. I've stayed at the All Stars and it's much more noisy and kid friendly, I think. But the rooms are smaller. Really, you can't go wrong at any of the Disney Hotels. You might look at the new Animation Resort that should be open then. - ally  509.2 #12 11:39AM
Hahaha - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #42 11:55AM
We love POR! - Ariel42  262.9 #27 12:16PM
Either March or April. πŸ˜„ - Candace  1737.8 #81 12:38PM
My family loves the Carribean beach resort it is really fun and beautiful! - sweetiepie  22.0 #153 12:43PM
Thanks everybody for your input. It's just the hubby and I going in either March or April. I've already looked into several resorts I just wanted input from MWers, especially ones who've been to WDW multiple times. 😊😘 - Candace  1737.8 #81 12:44PM

If you are talking about buses, Sports is actually first. - C-Ticket  39.7 #113 12:47PM
Animal kingdom lodge or beach club if u are a DVC member or the price doesn't matter to you. If you have a tight budget stay at a value resort I've never stayed at one but they look ok. The animal kingdom lodge has animals outside you balcony if u get a savannah view. The beach club is really close to epcot and has a nice pool. I also like the boardwalk and the bay lake tower or contemporary look cool - nodell111  166.4 #51 12:51PM
No DVC membership. - Candace  1737.8 #81 1:05PM
The free DDP deal runs thru march, with blackouts. Check disneyworld.disney.go.com for availability. We usually stay in values, an Pop Century is my fav of those. But you have to pay to upgrade to regular DDP. For just a little more, we like to splurge on a moderate with regular DDP included. I've stayed at Coronado Springs, which has a very fun pool. I'm staying at Caribbean beach on Thursday. For deluxes, I would love to stay at animal kingdom lodge, which has a free night vision thing at night, watching the savanna with nightvision goggles. I love Polynesian, with its fun decor, and it's right on the monorail. ~my two cents :) - C-Ticket  39.7 #113 12:56PM
Thanks for the info! A lot of the resorts have so much to offer. - Candace  1737.8 #81 1:06PM
I think you are going to be surprised at the enormity of it all. - ally  509.2 #12 1:49PM
I think you're right, ally. πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ - Candace  1737.8 #81 2:13PM

A value resort may be a good resort to start it would save u some money my favorite value resort is pop century very nice and fun but if u go on the Disney website u can c all the hotels and things it's almost like ur there hope j have a great first trip - Disneylover5678  15.4 #186 5:15PM
I don't think you can go wrong with any of the Disney resorts.  When I hear people complain about a particular resort, it's usually for very superficial stuff.  My all time favorite is the Polynesian and the Wilderness Lodge runs a close second.  If either of those are in the running, I'd be happy to expand upon why I like them so much! - bellatoris  28.0 #133 6:20PM
We love Wilderness lodge also! - Ariel42  262.9 #27 7:31PM
Yay! Have fun! We'll be taking the kids in October 😊 - LBChica  2306.0 #54 6:20PM

I honestly wouldn't care where if I could go back! 😁 okay, maybe a little. 😷😜 - bluefairy  643.3 #282 12:01AM
We love the Wilderness Lodge also. We are DVC members and have stayed at a few of the hotels and lodges. - Sandy  245.8 #1327 12:20AM
We all love Pop Century! - PixieDust76  93.4 #74 11:34AM
The boardwalk is amazing - jcg158  6.1 #355 3:20PM

I would say Poly or BLT!!! With a Castle view =) *+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #42 4:05PM
Hi Candace! Every time I plan a trip, it's Polynesian. And then I have to cancel. Argh. - Butterlina  1525.4 #98 6:45PM
That's too bad.πŸ˜” The Polynesian's one of the places I'm considering staying out. - Candace  1737.8 #81 7:25PM
We love to hang out at the Poly. However, we haven't stayed there yet due to the cost. Maybe next time. If you can afford it, go for it! It's right on the monorail and so convenient! - ally  509.2 #12 8:20PM
