Hello MW Family! I'm helping a friend book her vacation to Disney World and she asked me a question that I'm just simply having trouble answering! Animal Kingdom Lodge or the Polynesian Resort? Hard right? Which one would you choose?

Go twice as long and do a split stay. Sorry I'm no help. Poly! - jacdanfan  10971.5 #3 5:19AM
I love that answer!!! - disneyworldsbiggestfan  63.7 #92 10:31AM
Good answer! :) - codiejoeCM  184.0 #48 4:17PM
Poly, because of the monorail service and Captain Cooks! Don't get me wrong, I love AKL (& Boma), but it's so far away from everything! I prefer to visit. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1259.6 #4 7:45PM
Good point!! Ill remember that when I book my next vaca too. Closer is better! I hate driving once I'm there. Haha. - codiejoeCM  184.0 #48 4:19PM
Ill agree with this. The bus ride back to the AKL resort from anywhere seemed to take forever. - EXP626  24.7 #151 4:32PM
BTW codiejoe, I'm loving the new puppy pic! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1259.6 #4 7:25PM
Thank you! :) Hope all is well with you! - codiejoeCM  184.0 #48 8:46PM
VERY tough, but if I had the choice, I think I would say Poly. I have never been to either, so I don't have a reason other than it looks amazingly beautiful to me! - ncjal  279.4 #29 5:11PM
Poly. I love the atmosphere there. - ally  509.0 #17 8:07PM
Agree☝ - brittandkell  481.4 #424 8:00PM
Since we have stayed at AKL, Polynesian for a new experience. - Lelundrial  615.0 #323 8:22PM
Traveling with small kids where they will want to tale mid day breaks then poly. But AK is nicer. - Westcoast  152.5 #2647 8:30PM
A few nights at each! - Andrea84  711.0 #10 8:39PM
If she wouldn't mind the travel time , AKL is much nicer !!!!! - skcanfield  550.9 #14 3:33AM
The polynesian is way better - klperry07  11.9 #227 3:43AM
Both!! Haha, so funny you asked this question!! We are doing DL next year, but in 2015, we are planning 2-3 days at Poly then switching to AKL for 3-4 days!! - mrsincredible  1112.6 #6 3:48AM
Or vice versa! - mrsincredible  1112.6 #6 3:54AM
That sounds awesome! I should try that double stay thing one year. - codiejoeCM  184.0 #48 4:19PM
If they are traveling with children animal kingdom would be best. The bus comes quickly at animal kingdom so being far is not an issue. If it just them stay at the other. - 5disneylovers  1144.4 #5 4:07AM
Animal kingdom just because I would love to stay there and I love animals..... :) - Scothran  92.2 #76 5:32AM
Animal Kingdom Lodge all the way great place - carlstuckey  39.7 #118 7:24AM
My husband and I were just talking about staying at these 2! We are still undecided. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #584 8:12AM
Aminal Kingdom!!! We are here now staying in a DVC Villa This resort was named Best resort in the world last year It been great so far!!! - Fantasmicfan1  1449.2 #110 9:43AM
I agree my favorite resort - yessy  224.9 #39 12:42PM
Lucky! Haha. I've visited the DVC side one year with my friend and her parents. Amazing rooms and views! So beautiful. I hope you have a good stay! - codiejoeCM  184.0 #48 8:47PM
I have never stayed ay either but my choice would be The Poly. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #18 12:53PM
The poly it's much closer to everything. - Pooh147856  337.7 #23 12:56PM
I say Poly!!!! - DizneyGirl  893.8 #7 12:57PM
I would say Poly too! πŸ˜€ - disneycm  690.1 #11 1:23PM
Never been to neither, both look awesome but what i've seen about the resorts through pics, etc, i'd probably choose the polynesian - bubbaschoice  57.8 #98 2:06PM
Animal kingdom for sure. It is a unique experience and a very quite relaxing resort. It has a nice pool as well. And you get to see live animals, how special is that! Let us know what you decide. - SSpringsdvc  5.2 #17395 2:22PM
Polly - poohbear6382  37.5 #122 2:23PM
AKL Jambo House. Loved it!!! Only pool that's open 24 hrs a day :-) - Maleficent69  124.7 #64 4:07PM
Thank you everyone for your comments! I've missed you all!! - codiejoeCM  184.0 #48 4:16PM
