    We are coming for 6 days with a 2 and 5 year old. We are trying to decide between the Polynesian and Beach Club Resorts. Polynesian more convenient for getting around but Beach Club Resort especially the pool area seems to be more fun... Recommendations?

    Hi Marcie,

    Believe it or not, in some ways the Beach Club is more convenient than the Polynesian. While the Poly has easy access to the Magic Kingdom, the BC has easy access to two theme parks: Epcot and Hollywood Studios. 

    When my kids were small, we often stayed at the BC. Our plan was to spend the morning at the MK. We'd return to the hotel mid afternoon for naps and swim time in the AMAZING Beach Club pool (the best at WDW). We would always plan our evening meal at Epcot or on the Boardwalk. There are dozens of fabulous options there and as an added bonus, you can be back in your room 10 minutes after dinner, just by taking a quick stroll. 

    I've stayed at both the Beach Club and the Poly. You really can't go wrong with either one, but my personal preference is the Beach Club.
