First of all, I would like to make one thing quite clear. . . . I never explain anything.

I never wanted to have kids, even as a little girl. So when my husband and I got married we were very much in agreement in the kids department. My mother laments her lack of grandchildren almost every time I see her, but she's got my younger brother and I'm sure he'll end up with a litter at some point.

That being said, we go to Disneyland for my birthday EVERY year, just the husband and I. So much fun! Seriously, I'm not sure I had that much fun there when I was a kiddo myself. Sometimes I wish there were adults only days at Disney. I can dream right??

We're actually going on a month long vacation to celebrate my 30th in 2014 and the final week is all WDW. I've never been so I am uber excited! Any random "must do" things that I should know about?

We love the BW. I know it is not the most quiet of all resorts, but, you can spend more time strolling together hand in hand since you can walk to Epcot and DHS. The less time we spend on a bus is my idea of a good time. lol There are not a lot of children at this resort either.

Also......

Just wanted to share this DINKlife article with all of you. LOL

A recent study published in the Journal of Economic Psychology found that the average woman’s perfect day involves a lot of sleep, and almost no time spent with children.

Bricket,

We like AKL, and BW. I thought both had a romantic feel. At AKL you can dine at Jiko, great for an anniversary! And yea, we also noticed that BW doesn't seem to have as many children as the other deluxe resorts. During our stay at BW, we'd always go to the quite pool....seemed to be mostly adults w/a few teens. But no one was splashing around or making noise. It was great!

When we go out for an anniversary trip, we're looking to stay at the Poly. Never stayed there before, but that's been on our list for awhile.

We do the quiet pool sometimes. Last month we did it only b/c the music was so darn loud at the clown pool! I don't remember it being that loud in the past. There weren't that many kids, so that would not have been a problem.

Well I just love the AKL. I've stayed there more than any other WDW resort. But even if you're not staying there, I would definitely go and dine at one if the restaurants. Plan to arrive early and check out the animals from the various viewing areas. The bar at Sanaa has a nice area on the same level as the animals.

Another adult thing I like to do is pick up a margarita in Epcot for strolling around the world. Be sure to check out the Moderate and Deluxe resorts for dining and other entertainment and don't forget to make ADRs if you want to eat in the sit down restaurants.

Thank you everyone for your replies. I'm so pleased to see so many of you mentioning BW because that's where I truly want to stay.

Unfortunately, my husband is not an animal lover...not even a little bit. He doesn't like the park and he doesn't like the resort. He's appalled by it.

I don't get it either because he's a huge teddy bear. Everyone who meets him, adores him and when they find out how much of a non-animal loving person he is, they're baffled.

So BW Villa perhaps?

I would like to try a 1 bedroom b/c of the wash/dryer and I like that if one of us wakes up before the other, we can just shut the bedroom door and go about our business and not worry about the noise.

We book one bedrooms exclusively. At WDW we always have, but now even in CA we have given up on studios. It's just too luxurious to have your own jacuzzi tub and kitchen. Even though we mostly eat out, there's nothing like sleeping in and making bacon and eggs for breakfast MY way.

Oh how I love Dinklife.com. So justifies my thoughts when I feel pressured to go the baby making route.

Maddhatir... is that delightfully bearded man in your signature your husband? My hubby is also uber bearded. Gotta love a man w/ a beard.

LOL. I get more spoiled with each trip. LOL. I went from value resorts to BWV and can't look back, now I might be giving up on the studios. LOL.
