    Cathy thanks for responding. I am unsure about which deluxe resort to choose for that age of kids 7, 4, 1. The AKL (worried about transportation reviews) looks amazing , but so do others like POLY or Beach Club. Which deluxe resort would you recommend

    Hi, Jennifer!

    I think you are absolutely right to be looking into either Polynesian or the Beach Club.  Between the two, I would lean toward the Polynesian.  With younger kids, you will probably be spending a majority of your time at the Magic Kingdom which is just a quick monorail ride away from this tropical resort.  

    From the Polynesian, you can also take a lovely stroll through your resort to the Transportation and Ticket Center where you can catch a monorail that goes directly to Epcot.  Very convenient!  Bus transportation is available to Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney, and water parks.

    Other features of the Polynesian that I think you will enjoy include a great beach with views of Cinderella Castle (perfect for viewing fireworks) and a wonderful swimming pool with zero-depth entry.  We also like the food court area, Captain Cooks. We enjoy getting our breakfast from there and sitting pool side in the mornings. 

    We usually get a garden view room, and request a building near the Great Ceremonial House (the main building.)  When our kids were little, we also requested a first floor room so we didn't have to worry about elevators with strollers, back packs, and diaper bags to carry!

    I hope this resort is what you are looking for!  If not, or if you have any other questions, let me know

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
