    I am having a hard time choosing between the Polynesian and the Grand Floridian. Which one would you choose for a 6 year old?

    Hi Chad! 

    This is a tough decision! If you ask my boys, they would say Disney's Polynesian Village, probably because of the pool and the slide as well as the breakfast at 'Ohana, which features Stitch.  If you ask my daughter, she would say Disney's Grand Floridian because Cinderella makes an appearance in the lobby as well as the restaurant 1900 Park Fare, which features Cinderella's stepmother and her evil step sisters. They both offer the monorail transportation as well which is a nice feature! I would recommend that you check out the pages for Disney's Polynesian Village and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and see which one would be more appealing to your little one. I can guarantee that you can't go wrong with either one. 

    Did you know?:  Staying at a Disney Resort comes with lots of benefits. One of my favorites are the Extra Magic Hours where Guests can enjoy the parks before they open to the general public and after they close to the general public. Additionally, Disney Resort Guests can make their FastPass+ selections up to 60 days before check-in when you have a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation!  Be sure to download your My Disney Experience App for your smart phone!

     Happy Planning!
