The recent renovations of Polynesian Village Resort and The Contemporary Resort have both been pleasant surprises as a result of WDW’s ongoing preparations for its 50th Anniversary Celebration. Both renovations are purposely recalling some of their original 1970s mid-century designs mixed with 21st century modern touches and a little bit of Disney IP folded in. I would argue that Polynesian Village Resort is now the best theme park resort hotel in the world. The Contemporary Resort is in the middle of its renovations but the changes completed so far have been significant and overall very positive. I personally prefer UOR resorts, but with the direction WDW is going with its hotel renovations, that may change.
So, just to butt some heads a little bit, which is better - WDW’s resort hotels or UOR’s hotels?
