    Beach Club or Polynesian in mid October?

    Hi Craig! Although this appears to be an easy question to answer it really is not.  Both resorts are fabulous and for most guests it comes down to location. If you have younger children you might want to choose the Polynesian since it is a mere monorail ride to that magnificent park.  If your children are older and your park interest includes several days in EPCOT and Hollywood Studios the Beach Club is the perfect choice.

    The amenities will be similar at both resorts.  The Beach Club pool, Stormalong Bay, is rated by many to be the best on property and in mid October it is usually still warm enough to enjoy a pool every day so that is a consideration.  The Polynesian has rooms that provide a castle view which is very magical and the Beach Club will offer great night time looks of the Boardwalk area.

    Again, both are great and I would make my choice simply on the location.
