    We are coming to Disney in May. We are traveling with 3 college age children. Should we stay at Disney's Polynesian Resort or Disney's Beach Club? We like the Polynesian because it is on the monorail, Beach Club only has boat access to parks.

    Hi there Jill from New Jersey!

    Believe it or not, your Moms Panel response is coming to you today from another Jill from New Jersey!  Nice to meet you.

    While Disney's Polynesian Resort is a tropical paradise conveniently located a quick monorail ride from the Magic Kingdom, I would recommend you take your three college age children over to stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort instead.  Not only is this a lovely beach-themed resort, but it is within walking distance to two of the Disney theme parks.  As the mother of a tween and a teacher of teenagers, I can say with confidence that your kids are going to love having easy access to the thrill rides in Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  The Boardwalk is also nearby for evening entertainment.  I think your family is going to love staying in this area of Walt Disney World.

    Have a magical vacation!
