Need help choosing next resort

We are DVC members, and like many of you, have spent more vacations at DW than I care to admit! We also get into a rut of staying at same resorts over and over. Our home resorts are AKL and BLT. We have multiple stays at BC, FWL, and BW. 30 days out to our next trip in late May (staying in FWL) and planning the next trip for early 2019. We want to do something different, which resort are we missing out on?

SS Treehouses, maybe?

I wish those had been around when I was a kid. I bet most kids would love staying in one of those.

The larger room sizes in OKW might make a stay there a choice for you. I hear good things about their restaurant too.

I agree with above posters. We have stayed at OKW a couple of times and enjoyed it. We enjoy Olivia's too and have gotten seated without an ADR.

I bet the Tree Houses would be lovely and a nice, relaxing place to be when not in the parks.

I would add Poly to the list. We loved staying in the studio villa when they first opened. I love the island feel of the grounds and having the monorail access is a plus. We also love Kona breakfast!

Happy's fun to explore the different options. Maybe visit a couple of these resorts on your next trip to see what appeals to you most.
