Comparing the WDW Monorail Hotels

My family has been to Disney 18 times so far… and can’t wait for the next return trip.  We’ve stayed at a lot of the Disney hotels, and visited/ eaten/ done site visits at even more. But we keep returning to the monorail hotels as our preferred spot to stay. Why?  Location, location, location.

We LOVE Magic Kingdom. For us, no day at Disney is complete unless we’re at Magic Kingdom (MK) for at least a little bit. Sure, we pop over to Epcot,  Hollywood Studios, or Animal Kingdom to hit the key rides, catch a parade, watch Fantasmic!, etc., but we usually head over to MK either before or after. For us, it’s “home.”

So, in order to stay close to “home,” we stay at a monorail hotel.  There are 3 – and they are all deluxe hotels.  And they are all equally fabulous in their own ways. And each of my family members seems to have a different favourite (although DD11 changes her mind constantly which one she loves most).

My hubby’s favourite is Contemporary – it’s within 7 minute walking distance of MK (and the first monorail stop home).  A huge plus at the end of the night! (With terrific shopping too. And let’s not forget Chef Mickey’s!)

My DD5’s favourite is Polynesian – she loves the volcano waterslide in the dark. (Course, having easy access to both Epcot and MK monorails is awfully cool too.)

My favourite is the Grand Floridian – I LOVE the Victorian feel, the clean white and pastel environment, and the terrific ambiance. (And the canyon themed waterslide and pool is the prettiest there is.)

Check out the specifics – which hotel do you prefer?
