    Hello! We are taking our daughter to WDW for the 1st time for her birthday in December. We are debating on 3 different resorts: The Boardwalk, The Polynesian & The Beach Club. Besides pools which is most kid activity friendly?


    I honestly don't think you could go wrong with any of them. Here's why:

    Both the Boardwalk Inn and Beach Club offer the fun and lights of the Boardwalk. Magicians stroll the large walkways under the twinkle of the lights and among the carnival-like games. You can rent a surrey bike, watch a movie on the beach, or catch the fireworks from Epcot once night falls. If I had to choose between the two, I'd probably go with Beach Club simply because its closer to Epcot, its pools offer more and Cape May Cafe features a Character Breakfast with Minnie and the gang.

    The Polynesian has many underated activities that are memorable for children, not to mention they're FREE: lei-making lessons, hula lessons, and a fire-lighting ceremony on the grounds in the evening. Although the Beach Club offers a boat to Disney's Hollywood Studios, the Poly sports the monorail as well as a ferry and its Character Breakfast with Lilo, Stitch, and Mickey is a favorite even though it is not a buffet like Cape May.

    If you're going during warmer months, I'd choose Beach Club because of...well...the pool. Otherwise, go with the Polynesian.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
