  1. I have a recommendation for a video! I have heard about people renting DVC points. Can you make a video on this and walk us through the process to see if it is worth it or not.

  2. Caribbean beach is not the worst hotel Disney has! The worst is factually the budget/value hotels unless you can’t afford the moderate hotels! I’ve watched other ranking videos that say Carribean beach is one is the best hotels! Now what this video points out is true with the resort being spread out, but so is the grand Floridian. Even though you may have to walk to the skyliner, at least this resort has access to them; so getting a room close to them may be desired. I would say it could be better, but there is no resort with a great option of getting around as the buses get packed and take time to get around regardless of the resort. Even delux resorts only have bus access and a couple with monorail access.

  3. If Disney wants to make more money I have a plan and that is add the Disney Cruise food and recipes to the Disney Resorts than they can make up their budgets and people who can’t go on the Disney Cruise can still experience Disney Cruise food it’ll make it more magical that’s what I would do if I was the owner or manager of DisneyWorld.

  4. The theming, food, monorail access & what you can do at Polynesian makes it one of my top two.

    We stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge for 14 days in mid January to the end of January in 2024. We requested a partial savannah view, & maybe because it was the slow season, we got a full savannah view. The food is amazing. Even the quick service is pretty good.

  5. The Boardwalk location is the best in my opinion, you got a 10 minute walk to Hollywood and Epcot, and it is a great setting. If you have DVC points GO TO THE RIVIERA, it is the best choice you'll ever make!

  6. A number of comments asking about price. We are looking at going to WDW in September 2024 and this is the cheapest room in each hotel for two adults. Price per night:
    Fort Wilderness Campground – RV Spot – $109

    All-Star Sports Resort – $116
    All-Star Music Resort – $116
    Pop Century Resort – $161
    All-Star Movies Resort – $165
    Art of Animation Resort – $183
    Coronado Springs Resort – $221
    Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter – $235
    Port Orleans Resort – Riverside – $239
    Caribbean Beach Resort – $250
    Saratoga Springs Resort – $313
    Animal Kingdom Lodge – $335
    Wilderness Lodge – $360
    Fort Wilderness Campground – Cabins – $367
    Contemporary Resort – $395
    Beach Club Resort – $403
    Yacht Club Resort – $410
    BoardWalk Inn – $438
    Old Key West – $440
    Riviera Resort – $518
    Grand Floridian Resort & Spa – $551
    Polynesian Village Resort – $572

  7. We stayed at AKL on our last two trips, and I don't see how it can be ranked so high. Yes the savannah view is a one of a kind experience. Everyone should stay here once. But the transportation is a NIGHTMARE. I can't stress that enough. AKL is the main reason I refuse to ever ride on a Disney bus again. Also, the food is overrated. Sanaa is the most overrated restaurant on property and the only place we have ever been at WDW where the food was actually inedible. Boma is ok for breakfast. Jiko is solid but we prefer the filet at BOG and other restaurants. The quick service option is really the best dining perk at AKL.

  8. We LOVED our stay at the Caribbean Beach Resort. Been to Port Orleans and Art of Animation since and felt like CBR was more enjoyable. My biggest gripe is Disney took out the two northern villages for the atrocious Riviera resort that looks NOTHING like the French Riviera and costs more to visit than an actual trip to the Mediterranean. This channel has lost a little bit of credibility… By the way, Coronado Springs is mixed with the Wilderness Lodge chapter, if anyone was wondering.

  9. My sister once stayed at one of the all star resorts and when she came back we had bed bugs. So for that reason alone the all star resorts are at the bottom of my list and the most expensive.

  10. We stayed at All Star Movies and loved it. In two weeks we never waited more than 5 minutes for a bus. My 6 year old loved it so much he refused to leave on the first day when we wanted to go to magic kingdom. I didn’t want to stay in a more expensive hotel, we were going to the parks when it opens and leave when they closed so a more expensive hotel would have been a waste. Great video. Take care.

  11. My favorite Disneyworld hotel has always been Shades of Green! I know it isn't an available option for everyone but the rooms are so much cheaper and larger than most Disney properties. Nice and quiet too! The entitled kids and parents that let their kids run wild ruins a lot of the others for me. Especially at the lowest price point and highest price points!

  12. Great video! Honestly don't think animal kingdom lodge is that great. The pool was very underwhelming and the savanna views are over rated with a huge price tag. Dining is very good though.

  13. If you haven’t been to the all star resorts, I can tell u will certainty they are the worst, even considering their price. The food is literally a mall food court, everything looks like designers just throw up, and the bus rides to the parks are over 30 minutes.

  14. The Caribbean Beach resort is fantastic. Our family has loved staying here for several years. (And we're picky!) Really doesn't feel much more spread out than the other moderates, and we really enjoy the food there. Also, it has the nicest cast members who just generally seem to enjoy working there.

  15. Growing up as a Florida resident, we used to go to the Disney all star hotels probably about every other month for 5+ years as a kid. They used to be the same price as a best Western or a nice room at a Holiday Inn for a residence but nowadays I would just stay off property.

  16. Ok I'm confused…Say you are staying in Boardwalk…why couldn't you take the Skyliner to Epcot then the Monorail to Magic Kingdom? I mean it has been a while since I have been to Disney but I thought the monorail had two tracks and trains went both ways? Am I wrong? Have they changed that? Is there something I am missing here? Is DFB trying to get you to a park from a resort via only one mode of transport?

  17. Hey so I have gastroproesis so I'm on feeding tube. My kids really want to do a few character dining. I don't want to pay 60 per day and I can't eat. Do you know if disney will accommodate? It's ok if they don't maybe I'll just stay behind while they do breakfast.
