    Our family will be staying at either the Polynesian or the Boardwalk but we can not agree on which one? If you have stayed at the Polynesian and Boardwalk which would you recommend? We have no small children. I'll appreciate any input.

    Hi Karen!

    What a tough decision!  The Polynesian is one of my favorite Walt Disney World resorts, but the Boardwalk is equally as beautiful and fun. 

    Here are a couple of things to consider:

    Location:  Polynesian has monorail access to the Magic Kingdom.  This is our favorite park, so this is key for us.  The Boardwalk is walking distance or a ferry boat to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.  

    Extra activities:  The Boardwalk has lots of nightlife entertainment with street performers, shopping and delicious dining.  The surrey bike rentals are a great way to get around and have a little extra fun at your resort.  You can walk to the Yacht and Beach Club to check out those resorts as well.  The Polynesian has watercraft rentals that are a blast to take around the Seven Seas Lagoon.  You can also take a monorail over to the Contemporary and Grand Floridian.  You can hop a ferry boat to check out the Chip n Dale's Campfire Sing-a-long at Fort Wilderness.  

    Theme:  Which theme appeals to you the most?  Tropical paradise with views of the Magic Kingdom at the Polynesian or the Coney Island style charm of the Boardwalk?

    You won't be disappointed with either resort.

    Have a magical day!
