Thank you for the review, Amanda.

I'm curious to hear from TPI readers who've stayed at the various "monorail" resorts which one they think provides the best value (views, comfort, service, room sizes, etc.) for the money. Anyone?

We always stay at Sheraton Resorts in Orlando but I did enjoy reading this and wanted to say thanks….

I've never stayed there, but most Disney World message boards consistantly rave that the Polynesian provides the best "value" among the 3 monorail resorts, assuming spending over $200/night for a hotel room is valuable to anyone other than the hotellier.

Amanda, great read. We have stayed in a two bedroom villa at BLT and really enjoyed the convenience of its location. I, too, am a DVC member, with 5 different home resorts. BLT is one. BLT eliminated one of my negative comments by recently adding a check-in desk in the actual lobby. My only other negative comment involved the "theme-feel" of the resort. At first check-in, it kinda felt like an upscale Hyatt or Hilton. But after one takes the time to really walk around and look at the furnishings, the design and the actual theme of the resort, it becomes kinda cool. We have stayed at Aulani, AK villas and Wilderness Lodge and you are immediately hit with the theme as soon as you enter the lobby. I guess that spoiled us, thus requiring us to slow down and really look at the details at BLT. With all said, BLT is a keeper and should be experienced by everyone.
