    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
