    High been reading your site and have found it very useful and informative. I will be coming to Disney world on November the 6th and staying at the wilderness lodge with my wife adult daughter and her partner. I’ve read lots about what is good to do when booking and am thinking of using a concierge to make it more special am I doing the right thing spending xtra money on one. Regards Carl Beedle

      Carl, the concierge options do not remotely add value commensurate with the cost, in my opinion, especially on a first visit where you will not be in the hotel much..

    Very helpful site! Looking at taking my 5 year old daughter in April 2015 for her first trip (will be for her birthday.) She loves princesses and is a “girly girl”. Would the Contemporary be better since it’s so close to MK, or the Grand Floridian since it’s more lavish (girly girl) or the Polynesian (since that’s your number one, but I’m worried about construction)? We would build in a few “days off” into our trip where we would not be going into any parks, but would be able to just hang out at the hotel. Thanks!

      Kelley, Poly construction should be done be then–but one of the reasons it’s my top recommendation is its convenience to Epcot–which does not have a lot for a 5 year old. Among the three, GF will likely be the best choice for her, for the reason you note!
