    You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas.

    6. Young kids-Fort Wilderness....lots for them to do there, petting farm, pony rides, campfire singalongs and outdoor movies
    7. Preteens-Boardwalk, they would enjoy the outside area/entertainment of the Boardwalk

    Funny, we agreed on most things. I haven't stayed at Fort Wilderness or Caribbean Beach, so I don't know much about those. I think those are the only resorts we haven't even visited. Oh, and All Stars.

    I just read yours now and realized that, I didn't want to look at anyones answers before I answered the questioned because I figure it would just confuse me I would end up putting down all the resorts for all the questions It's a great thread

    Re: Top Resort Choice

    So here is a list of things that I would like to know your top resort choice for:
    1. Value- for a true value room Pop Century- like Wilderness as a Deluxe option
    2. Theme- Wilderness Lodge
    3. Romance- Port Orleans Riverside or Wilderness Lodge
    4. Pool- anything with a slide!
    5. Bringing a baby- Contemporary or other monorail line
    6. Young kids- Pop Century
    7. Preteens- Fort Wilderness
    8. Teens- Depends on their interest. Mine like the parks so it doesn't matter- grab a bus and GO
    9. Food Court- Wilderness Lodge for deluxe- Port Orleans French Quarter is small and easy to navigate but Riverside has that cool mill!
    10. All close food options- I would say the Boardwalk area has a lot of choices
