    We are bringing our 3.5 yr old and 5 month old for five days and can't decide whether to stay at the tree houses at Saratoga Springs or two adjoining rooms at the Polynesian. Is the extra space at the tree house worth the 15 min ride from Saratoga?

    Hi Catherine! If you are planning on relying solely on Disney transportation during your stay, I would personally vote for the Polynesian. I have stayed with my family of 5 - (a 12 year old, a 10 year old and a 2 year old currently, along with my husband) at the Polynesian and the Grand Floridian for 3 nights each. We were fine both times with the space. If you plan on really hanging out in your room, or need a separate secluded space for naps, then the Treehouses might work better for you, but if you are just planning on sleeping or having a little quiet time during the day, I think the Polynesian will be fine. You'll have the added convenience of monorail, boat and bus access and a close pool, food options and shops to explore.

    Good luck with your decision and have a wonderful vacation!
