The deluxe resorts are nice, but they’re SOOOO much more expensive than the value resorts, and even the moderates. They’re really only special event hotels for me. I’m just as happy at Pop Century. (Or Caribbean Beach – you guys have to get over your Caribbean Beach hate!) Although, one of our favorite things to do is explore around some of the other resorts in our down time.
Thanks, and keep up the great “work” with the podcast!
An emphatic yes! We travel to WDW every 3-5 years from a geographically cold U.S. climate (Think snow in May – Brrrr!). For us, it is always the Poly or the Beach Club. We enjoy these hotels as much as we enjoy the parks. For us, the hotel is everything and these completely immerse us in a WDW Bubble. We love the locations, over-the-top pools, proximity to the parks, enhanced service, and stellar restaurants and lounges. There is scant better than watching fireworks while strolling along Crescent Lake or the Seven Seas Lagoon, or congratulating ourselves for conquering the early morning rope drops with an afternoon cocktail poolside. We are obsessed with all Signature Dining at WDW, and these two resorts place us in a prime position to feast at some of the best. Although you frequently promote the moderates (particularly Port Orleans – French Quarter, which from your accounts sounds enticing), I am reluctant to try them. Never leave something good to find something better, because once you realize you had the best, it is almost impossible to find better!
Keep up the clever and original podcasting. You are all the best!
I enjoyed the conversation today about Deluxe Resorts. I’ve stayed at a value resort and at a deluxe resort and can definitely say that the deluxe resorts have superior accommodations and themes. The value resorts rooms seem to be simply a slightly nicer average hotel room, Additionally, I’d add that the Deluxe Resorts tend to be far closer to the parks than the value resorts. My opinion is if you have the means for a deluxe resort, you’ll enjoy the stay.
