    Coming to WDW Oct/Nov with DH, DD5, DS1 and was all set for POFQ. Now have the opportunity to stay on the monorail line Yea :) Which of the 3 resorts would be the best choice for our small children? Pool, playground, food, etc. Txs for all suggestions

    Hi, Diana!  You really can't go wrong with any of the three monorail resorts.  They all have different charms and features, and each of them has a great area for kids to swim and activities for children at various times.

    If I had to choose one for my family, it would be the Polynesian Resort.  I love having the beach to watch the nightly Electric Water Pageant, and the volcano pool is a favorite for all three of my girls.  We also like to grab a DoleWhip from Captain Cook's and watch the Wishes fireworks from the Magic Kingdom from the Polynesian Beach.  There is an arcade, and throughout the day and evening, you can usually find some kind of children's activities either in the Great Ceremonial House or by the pool.

    As for restaurants, we really enjoy Kona Cafe, where you can get the famous Tonga Toast.  You will also find 'Ohana at the Polynesian, where you can enjoy a character breakfast, currently featuring Lilo and Stitch; or you can have a family style dinner, where they usually have an activity for the children.

    The Spirit of Aloha dinner show also takes place at the Polynesian Resort.  My kids still talk about the amazing dancers at the show!

    If your children are over the age of three and potty trained, you can treat them to an evening at the Neverland Club at the resort while you enjoy an evening with your husband.  The Neverland Club offers all sorts of activities and games for children in the evenings.  Reservations are required for this childcare option.

    Again, you can't really go wrong with any of the resorts, but my personal favorite is the Polynesian.  You feel transported to a tropical paradise, and it's a great way to spend a vacation!
