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  12150.4 #6 5:19AM
I love that answer!!! - disneyworldsbiggestfan  72.0 #88 10:31AM
Good answer! :) - codiejoeCM  184.0 #49 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  1450.4 #3 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 #49 4:19PM
Ill agree with this. The bus ride back to the AKL resort from anywhere seemed to take forever. - EXP626  24.7 #154 4:32PM
BTW codiejoe, I'm loving the new puppy pic! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1450.4 #3 7:25PM
Thank you! :) Hope all is well with you! - codiejoeCM  184.0 #49 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  294.4 #28 5:11PM
Poly. I love the atmosphere there. - ally  509.0 #18 8:07PM
Agree☝ - brittandkell  519.7 #422 8:00PM
Since we have stayed at AKL, Polynesian for a new experience. - Lelundrial  711.1 #282 8:22PM
Traveling with small kids where they will want to tale mid day breaks then poly. But AK is nicer. - Westcoast  174.8 #2366 8:30PM
A few nights at each! - Andrea84  720.8 #10 8:39PM
If she wouldn't mind the travel time , AKL is much nicer !!!!! - skcanfield  585.2 #13 3:33AM
The polynesian is way better - klperry07  11.9 #231 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  1317.7 #4 3:48AM
Or vice versa! - mrsincredible  1317.7 #4 3:54AM
That sounds awesome! I should try that double stay thing one year. - codiejoeCM  184.0 #49 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  1160.6 #6 4:07AM
Animal kingdom just because I would love to stay there and I love animals..... :) - Scothran  101.6 #71 5:32AM
Animal Kingdom Lodge all the way great place - carlstuckey  40.1 #121 7:24AM
My husband and I were just talking about staying at these 2! We are still undecided. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #622 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  3667.0 #43 9:43AM
I agree my favorite resort - yessy  233.5 #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 #49 8:47PM
I have never stayed ay either but my choice would be The Poly. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #20 12:53PM
The poly it's much closer to everything. - Pooh147856  381.8 #23 12:56PM
I say Poly!!!! - DizneyGirl  967.7 #8 12:57PM
I would say Poly too! 😀 - disneycm  711.9 #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 #100 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 #18418 2:22PM
Polly - poohbear6382  37.5 #126 2:23PM
AKL Jambo House. Loved it!!! Only pool that's open 24 hrs a day :-) - Maleficent69  128.2 #63 4:07PM
Thank you everyone for your comments! I've missed you all!! - codiejoeCM  184.0 #49 4:16PM

Easily manage the social side of MouseWait for Disneyland and Disney World with our new mousetopia app for iOS. Post to the DL or WDW side, use your Stickers, and utilize our new MouseWait Messenger. Optimized for iOS 8 and the iPhone 6! See what's new here


MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105850 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6437.7 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127491 10:15AM
That just means it's time to start planning! 😀 - AngiMouse  104.9 #3566 1:02PM
Ours is blank too with no plans anytime soon. That's why I come to ☺️☺️☺️ - DisneyMom13  311.8 #874 7:30PM
