Hello MW family! Well, I've been bitten by the Disney bug again, and I've decided that when the reimbursement gets here from my insurance company, I'm booking a trip to Disney, even if it's last minute! I've had such a horrible year since I got back from Disney in February, and I need some serious cheering up! My granddaughter has been asking me almost every day when can we go back to Cinderella Castle, so I've made the decision to go sooner rather than later! I'm going to try to stay at a deluxe, as this is the only time I think we'll ever be able to afford it. I'm thinking about Animal Kingdom Lodge, but I might switch to The Contemporary if I can get a room for the dates I want. Any opinions out there? My travel party will be myself, 19 yr old daughter, and 3 yr old granddaughter. =)

If you're going to go deluxe my little opinion is go. Fr the monorail u will not regret it. Poly is my fav. Akl does look magestic tho but I really loved how convinient a monorail is. Even tho my fam and I stay at moderates we drive to the poly and take the mono!! - Polynesiangirl  98.4 #71 3:24PM
Totally agree! Love the Poly. - Pooh147856  336.5 #23 4:07PM
Sorry that you have been having a really hard time, but yay for Disney planning, those are both wonderful resorts but have you thought about the boardwalk , or beach club both are beautiful and relaxing and have awesome pool areas especially for little ones, plus so much to do at boardwalk if you just want to take a break and hang at the resort , magicians , and games and great food , but if you are set on AKL or contemporary I would pick contemporary , it's really pretty and the monorail is right there plus the little water parade at night is cute and you can watch fireworks from there , either way you can't go wrong:) - tracsant  1460.6 #2 3:32PM
I honestly never thought about the Boardwalk area. I thonk we'll be going around the middle of November. I haven't been to Disney for the Christmas decorations since I was very young. I feel the parks are more magical that time of year. Thanks for the helpful hints. =) - eeyorefan107l  280.2 #28 3:40PM
That's a beautiful time to go , all the resorts looks amazing - tracsant  1460.6 #2 3:47PM
We love AKL. The atmosphere, the animals, the pool. For us the little extra time traveling from hotel to park is worth it. - Pixarprincess  544.4 #366 4:30PM
Sorry for your year and YAY for WDW plans! - ally  509.0 #17 4:33PM
Yea it's would be tough to explain to the kids no Disney. Sorry. How the settlement comes quickly. - 5disneylovers  1143.5 #5 4:36PM
You and me both! I want to be able to book for free dining. We do a lot of character meals, so free dining is the way to go. If I can't get free dining, I'll probably just book us at POFQ. We loved it there in Feb. =) - eeyorefan107l  280.2 #28 4:59PM
Sorry for the rough year and hope the rest of it goes much better for you. You may be able to rent DVC points to get a cheaper deal on a deluxe and then have more money for other things while there. Just an idea, although you are interested in the free dining so idk. - kayxobelle  230.9 #36 7:50PM
