    Wilderness worth extra $ over Moderates/Value?

    I've discussed this before, but I got mixed results.
    I currently hold a 3 day reservation for the Wilderness Lodge at the AAA rate of 15% off during value summer season next July. ($260) a night then 15% off that.

    Anyhow, I was wondering if in your opinion it is worth paying the extra $ for Wilderness Lodge over the Moderates / Values? We are probably going to go to Disney World only once or twice in a long while. I would like to make the trip extra special for my wife. I'm half tempted to go all out and go for the Polynesian. However, any other deluxe hotel is over $100 more per night than the Wilderness Lodge.

    So, would you make the step up to the Poly?
    or Would you think the Wilderness isn't worth the extra price over Port Orleans or even over Pop Century? Or should I stay with the Wilderness?

    The prices will probably be further discounted as the deals for next summer are released. Fairygodmother travel agency is nice enough to take care of changing our rate if we need to .

    One thing nice about the Poly is that it has it's own monorail stop, so you don't have to depend on the bus service to get to the Magic Kingdom or EPCOT. Anytime you can avoid the buses at WDW, it's a good thing.

    Definately worth the extra $'s. The boat ride from MK to the hotel at night is the best de-stresser in the world.
