    We're planning a February trip and cannot decide where to stay. We have stayed at Caribbean Beach, but thought we might try a deluxe resort this time with the sale prices. My sons like quick service dining. Which is better? BC or Poly?

    Hi Carol - that is a difficult decision because they are both wonderful resorts.

    If your sons will want to spend a lot of time at the resort swimming, you can't beat the pool at the Beach Club - Stormalong Bay.  It's so much fun - you may even want to spend the whole day there.  In addition, if your family enjoys the World Showcase at Epcot, the Beach Club is super-convenient, as you just have to walk about 5 minutes to get there.

    However, I find the Polynesian to have the better theme, restaurants, and convenience to the other parks.  Its proximity to the Ticket and Transportation Center make it easy to get to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot (via monorail) and Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios (via bus).

    Good luck deciding!  You can't go wrong either way!
