Re: Can't decide where to stay-Poly or Value?
I'm no Disney expert, but I'd say its relevant to your finances and how much time you'll spend at your resort. That, and the fact that the Value resorts have double beds... so if you're used to sleeping in a larger bed that can have an impact.
No doubt the Polynesian is better if you can afford it. The grounds will be better, the rooms larger, the restaurants and transportation MUCH better. Just remember that you can eat at any restaurant at any resort, so you could still have breakfast with Stitch if you stay elsewhere... and if budget is tight then staying at a Moderate or Value resort could easily save you enough to pay for all meals (and a few extras for your family.)
We'd love to stay at a Deluxe resort, but the above is why we're staying at a Moderate resort instead - the money saved for us means more souvenirs, dining, and the like.
Either way you're sure to have a great time!
