    We can't decide where to stay. My DH and I are going to DW in July with our 1 & 8 yr olds. We stayed at BC loved the pool but DH is not a fan of Epcot. We also love GF (monorail access)but afraid it doesn't seem kid friendly. What do you suggest?

    Have you considered a stay at Disney's Polynesian?  It, too, is a monorail resort with quick and convenient travel to the Magic Kingdom.  The volcano pool is, perhaps, more suited to the playful nature of young children than the pool at the Grand Floridian.  Your kids might also enjoy the character breakfast at 'Ohana with Lilo and Stitch.  If not, then they might enjoy the coconut races and other kids activities that take place during dinner.

    In all honesty, there are also great character meal opportunities and other recreational activities for kids available at the Grand Floridian as well.  You know best which theming will most appeal to your children though.  If you opt for a stay at the Polynesian you may be pleasantly surprised to find that the room rates will be slightly less than those at the Grand Floridian--more money to "play" with!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
