    Hi Moms! We are planning a trip to WDW the end of November with our 4 year old son. Which resort would you recommend? The Polynesian or Disney's Beach Club resort? Thanks!

    Hello Amy!  What a wonderful problem to have!  Both are great resorts and have lots to offer.  I would probably make my decision based on location.  If you think you will be spending most of your time at Magic Kingdom, I would definitely go with the Polynesian.  You can't beat the convenience of the monorail access to Magic Kingdom.  You can also take the monorail to Epcot (requires transferring monorails at Transportation and Ticket Center).

    The Beach Club on the other hand is within walking distance or a quick boat ride to Hollywood Studios and World Showcase at Epcot.  And if swimming is important to your son, you can't beat the pool area at the Beach's literally a small water park in itself.  (Although the Poly has an awesome volcano water slide.)

    Personally, I'm a Magic Kingdom girl and if it were up to me, I would go with the Poly.  I found the monorail resorts to be especially convenient when my children were younger.

    Good luck with your decision!  Diane  :)
