    Money is No Object

    Ok this might be a repeat of the "if you could live at one resort" but it's not.

    If money were no object, which resort would you stay at? For how long would you stay? and where would you choose to dine?

    I think I would do 6 weeks (lol) with 2 weeks each at AKL, Wilderness Lodge Villas (even though I've only been to the Lodge and not the DVC part) and Polynesian.

    I would eat at Victoria and Albert's at least 2 times, California Grill several times, Chef Mickey's several times. Having looked at other Menus..I would also add Narcoosee's, Shula's, and Boatwrights just for fun.

    I would stay at all of the Deluxe resorts for one week each (including Swan and Dolphin) so that would make it 10 weeks if I counted right.

    I would do 10 days at the Polynesian
    Le Cellier, Spirit of Aloha, CRT, San Angel, Crystal palace, Chef Mickey's, Fulton's, and most other DTD restaurants.

    10 days at Dolphin
    Basically the same restaurants- too many food items we do not eat and will not eat.

    10 days at Grand AKL,
    same restaurants


    10 days at Grand Floridian

    I would be ready to come home, or go to another point on the map

    Disney rocks, Walt was a genius.

    I would do:
    1 week at the Polynesian
    1 week at the Grand Floridian
    1 week at Wilderness Lodge
    1 week Contemporary
    1 week at Animal Kingdom Lodge
    1 week at the Boardwalk

    Dining would include Victoria and Alberts, Tutto Italia, Teppan Edo, Boma, Flying Fish, Cali Grill, Blue Zoo, Citrico's, Narcoossee's, Il Mulino, Yachtsman Steakhouse and Trails End (hey, I have to get back to reality at some point)
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    I think I would just do a week at each resort. That would give me plenty of time to see what every resort has to offer.

    I would eat at all of the resort restaurants, whether the menu appealed to me or not, just to get a taste of everything!

    I'm with you Spodie. I'd want to stay at each resort and eat at every dining place in WDW!!!!

    So far we've stayed in a different resort each trip, and we're trying to eat at different places each visit too.

    This is a tough one for me.

    I would take several vacations in a year. Flying every time with a personal driver to take my family and me anywhere we wanted to go. I would probably start off at the value resorts, visiting each one for about a week. Then the next year I would visit all of the moderates. Then the two years I would stay at the deluxe resorts. Somewhere in there, I would go on a cruise. And maybe the next year staying at DVC places.

    As far as dining, I don't know. I think we would make a sechedule and try to eat at every place at least once within 4 years or so. I know Le Cellier and Artist Point would be places we would probably go every time.

    If money were no object and therefore neither were time away from work, I think I'd stay at each resort, for 3 day each, in the order that they were built. As for dining, I would make ADRs for each table service restaurant both in the parks and at the resorts. I figure 3 meals a day multiplied by 3 days at each and every resort is a lot of meals.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    I never have time to do the "extra" stuff like spa treatments, boat rentals etc., so I'd do all of them. I would like to stay at all the MK and EPCOT resorts for a week or so each and ask for the most exquisite suite in each with the best view. I would do all the tours and cruises and I'd hire one of the guides like I saw on the Travel Channel show.

    Wanna dream?? How about offering a insane amount of money (millions I would assume)to LIVE for a year in Cinderella Castle or at least above the Firehouse on Main Street.

    I would also stay at least a week in each deluxe and DVC resort. I just don't get tired of being there. I could just aimlessly wander around.
