    Planning a trip for 5 to Disney in June.Stayed at the Poly 08 & loved it but want to try something different.Our 6 yr old son would love AK villas (loves animals) but our girls (12, 15) would prefer Bay Lake Towers.Great pool is a must as is food varie

    Hello Amy!  I have stayed at both resorts and love them both!  However, you mentioned that a great pool is a must.  Between the two resorts, Bay Lake Towers has the better pool area in my opinion.  Your last sentence about food was cut off but as you know you'll have a kitchen (or kitchenette if you go with the studio) so you'll be able to easily store food and you have full access to all the restaurants at the Contemporary resort.  I do think you will find the location of Bay Lake Towers more convenient as well. 

    I'm not sure how many nights you plan on staying but you could also make everyone happy by staying a few nights at each resort.  Diane
