    We´re going to WDW next January, but we haven't decided which hotel to stay at. We have a five year old girl. I thought about YC because of the location, but the price is similar to Poli and GF. Could you help me  choose?

    Hi Andrea!  This is a wonderful kind of problem because all the resorts you have mentioned are absolutely wonderful and you couldn't go wrong at any of them!

    I would look through the information for all three and basically decide on the theme your family would enjoy more.  They will have similar amenities as all are considered deluxe locations.  The Yacht Club resort is within walking distance to EPCOT and a walk or boat ride to the Hollywood Studios.  The Polynesian and Grand Floridian are on the monorail that connects you to the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT with ease.

    The Grand Floridian is the most elaborate themeing of all three and the Polynesian is the most relaxed.  The Yacht Club is elegant but family friendly and a bit more quiet then some of the other resorts.  The pool at this resort is considered by many to be the best on property but since you are coming in January you might not be concerned about swimming as much as doing other things.

    Please check the disney website, www.disneyworld.com to see more comparisons before making your decision.  I am confident that with whatever decision you make you will find lots of magic during your vacation!
