Disney Survivor Game - Deluxe Resorts

Since Boma won the first survivor game I thought we'd try resorts this time. I had a feeling Boma was going to win that one, so we'll try to put some drama into this one:

Animal Kingdom Lodge 5
Polynesian Resort 5
Wilderness Lodge 5
Contemporary Resort 5
Grand Floridian 5
Yacht & Beach Club 5
Boardwalk Resort 5

Let me know if you think it's unfair to put Yacht & Beach Club together and I'll seperate them.

Never stayed at any of these, but the one that appeals the least would be Wilderness Lodge (feel free to discard my vote if not having stayed at them discounts me).

Never stayed in them but I've looked round most of them. The one that appealed the least to me was the Grand Floridian (although I haven't seen the Yacht and Beach Club or Boardwalk in person).

Sorry GF.

Hi,

In case you haven't noticed, this is my day off. Based on my almost missing an 'Ohana ADR because it was too dark to see, I'll need to ding the Polynesian Resort:

Solly, Poly.

I've gotta dock GF, too. There's something wrong with paying THAT much money and still getting pretty much the same room you're getting at the Yacht and Beach or Boardwalk resorts. Plus -- they haven't even switched to good bedding. They still have basically the same comforters they've had for years that never get washed (as I learned working in housekeeping at a hotel). At least with the duvet comforters at places like Contemporary and Coronado Springs the outer covering gets washed.

Never stayed at the contemporary, but it does not excite me in the least.

The Grand Floridian is BORING and the counter staff was not very helpful to us this past summer when we were trying to get a spa certificate for a friend.

Wow, I'm surprised about the early beating that GF is taking. I think it's beautiful and well-maintained. We had a good experience there, too.

Haha, it's just not my style and I think that's true for a lot of people. It's a gorgeous resort but I would much rather stay about 40 other places.

Animal Kingdom Lodge 3
Polynesian Resort 5
Wilderness Lodge 4
Contemporary Resort 4
Grand Floridian 0 !!
Yacht & Beach Club 5
Boardwalk Resort 4

Sorry Boardwalk! Just so all of you know I'd happily stay in any of you!

Agh! Not my beloved Contemporary too! Have mercy, People! (and I could wile away the day, drinking tea at the GF happily. Isn't it neat to get to know one another here?)

I love it, but I'll take a point from Yacht & Beach Club. I like the themeing at the other hotels much better. Y&B is a bit too standard.

I agree with my wife - the location on AKL kind of sucks. However, Boma is there, so I'm not knocking the point. I'm taking it from Wilderness Lodge because, well, I didn't really want to take it from any place else right now.

Sorry everyone. I tried to copy and paste the list and it did not work. I made a big mess out of it. I hope deleting my attempt fixes the thread.
Since the GF has already been knocked off I have to go with the Contemporary.

This poll seems to touch our emotions far more than the last one, Brad. I am happy to see I'm not the only one. Maybe after we finish this one, you should try another dining one? See if that one incites this type of response. I for one had never dined at any of the last poll's restaurants (I know, I know.)

Well the last one was almost a foretold conclusion. I shouldn't have put Boma in there as everyone loves Boma. I can understand the sentiments on the Contemporary. It doesn't hold as much Magic on the surface, but staying in the tower with the great views and being able to walk to the Magic Kingdom is wonderful. Plus, the rooms there are the nicest I've stayed at in any WDW hotel.

I'll try to pick a more provocative set of restaurants the next time we do dining. Wink

I think the Contemporary means so much to me because it was the original, and the concept (being able to take out rooms and update them modularly, even if it never actually worked) is so cool. And I suppose that working there and meeting DH there probably has something to do with it. I know the Poly is original too, but it just doesn't have the sway over me that the Contemporary has.

I've never been to Boma (commence your gasps of shock.)

Sorry - back to voting, Everyone!
