My DH and I enjoy the lobby at the Poly, they usually have entertainment on the second level, it's a laid back environment. Nice to get a tropical drink and enjoy!

We usually stay at the Boardwalk. Most times lucky enough to get a room with a balcony overlooking the boardwalk itself. After a dinner at one of the restaurants (usually ESPN so we can watch the local team) just sitting and watching the action below is entertainment enough. Usually with a couple of cold ones. We also enjoy Jellyrolls.

When we go to WDW we usually like to hang around the boarwalk or walk around Downtown Disney marketplace. Both places are great to wind down with after a busy day at the parks.

Marketplace is a good one for a late-night stroll. I also like the lounge in the Contemporary overlooking Bay Lake. Can't remember the current name at the moment.

The Boardwalk has my vote! I love watching the performers on the Boardwalk and the people in the surreys trying to get up that hill that goes over the bridge. After I'm done on the Boardwalk, I usually wind down with a walk around the courtyard before turning in. It's surprisingly quiet there even though the Boardwalk is just a few yards away.

Just being in WDW at night is enough for me! AKL story telling, Market Place, resort hopping for the sheer hell of it and most of all. Getting into bed and knowing when I wake up tomorrow I can do it all over again :D

But on a completely different note..i drove by the new Waldorf Estoria thats being build in the Bonnet Creek area yesterday...and Ill tell you want...that looks pretty sweet! Just what I need Disney to do...build another hotel that I cant afford to stay at : )

Now that Pleasure Island is gone, and even though I've only been there once...Jellyrolls is a great place to visit. I had such a good time when I went there with my friends. We sat right in the front and the guys saw me getting really into an Elton John song and they picked me to get on stage and sing a solo (mind you I am a horribile singer) haha
I know this is probably your first flight...and it's mine too...ha, ha

Resort hopping would be up there for me, but my favorite is just hanging out in the lobby of WL in one of those comfortable leather chairs, listening to the WL loop play in the background.

I like the Boardwalk at night. I've never tried Jelly Rolls and the one time I went into Atlantic Dance it was dead. But there is nice ambiance just hanging out on the Boardwalk or having dinner at an outside table.
No one's gloomy or complaining while the flatware's entertaining.
