    Re: Can't decide where to stay-Poly or Value?

    I am going to put our deposit down tomorrow for our trip! We are gonna stay at the All Stars Movie resort for 6 nights!

    I'm excited. This trip is very well deserved!!

    Now, to decide on some ADRS. I am thinking Crystal Palace for either breakfast or lunch, Ohana for breakfast, the Luao dinner show, and either Cinderella Royal Table or the Princess Dining in Epcot (sorry I cant spell that right now)

    Any good recommendations for quick service in the Magic Kingdom and Epcot? Those are the two main parks we are going to visit. I dont want to overload either one of us, cause I want to try to enjoy a lot more of these two parks, since I know and can appreciate a lot more thanks to all the podcasts Ive listened too.

    Congrats on getting the trip reserved. I know you will have fun.

    In regards to quick service in MK and Epcot: In EPCOT I recommend Sunshine Seasons in the Land pavilion. They have a variety of choices and great food. In MK I hear that Columbia Harbour House and Peco's Bills are the best. I haven't eaten too much Quick Service in MK in a while but always hear Lou and others rave about Peco's Bills.

    Have a great time continuing to plan. I am jealous. I just got back from a short weekend trip a month ago but ready to go again.
    See ya,

    I agree with Yensid23's choices. My bf loves Sunshine Seasons in Epcot, we like the ones mentioned for MK, but we also like Cosmic Ray's.

    I have to quote myself!! haha

    I have been looking all weekend over the menus and reviews on allears.net and other sites, and OH MY GOSH...I am going to have to make a list tomorrow and look at prices for all these different places and figure out which ones will make our dining plan worth it and which ones are the best to try! WOW though, this is why we always ate burgers and chicken nuggets before...haha

    Now I am thinking I may have to add in a day at Hollywood Studios, because of all the Disney Junior characters, and they have a character meal with Leo and June from Little Einsteins!! My Kayla is going to be in absolute heaven on this trip! And they just announced Phineas and Ferb will be greeting around the Studios!! (If Perry would come out I myself would flip out! )

    Re: Can't decide where to stay-Poly or Value?

    yeah, I would go with the value resort and save some money. Then you can use some of that large amount of money you saved to do something really special like a character dinner, special tour or event like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or Pirates League. I think that could be even more memorable that sleeping in a nicer room. I also agree that Pop Century is the way to go especially considering transportation. It will be nice not having to stop at other resorts to pick other people up. Either way, I hope you both have a magical trip!

    Thanks so much! Looking forward to it. Counting down...

    No BBB, maybe pirates league...not sure yet. i may we have some character meals planned using our DDP, my dd4 is too young for the tours yet...although i would love to go back and do them!!

    we are staying at ASMov...so hopefully the buses wont be too bad with stopping at the other AS resorts!

    Wow that is a HUGE variation! In overall experience Polynesian is infinitely better! But as far as costs go the Values are great! I agree with everything said above. It's all about your finances and how much time you will be spending at the resort.

    What will you CELEBRATE!

    Re: Can't decide where to stay-Poly or Value?

    Poly is awesome for all the reasons you mentioned but it is expensive. Do you buy souvenirs? Keepsakes? You might want to stay in value and spend a night eating and experiencing the Polynesian.
    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.
