    Hi WDW moms! I have a question about where we should stay. Coming in Oct for 4 nights, 5day hopper tickets. DH,me,DS13,DS11,DD7. Trying to decide between Beach Club/Poly/Cont. What would you pick if you had my family makeup. Thanks


    These are the questions I like best so I hope I can help you with choosing the best resort for your family. I, too, have three kids, two of which are around the same ages as two of yours, and we are staying at the Beach Club on an upcoming visit. The theming is very family friendly and the pool is one of the coolest on property. Stormalong Bay is the ultimate place for fun in the sun with lazy river, zero entry pool, and water slide that plunges from a "shipwreck"! So, if you plan to spend any time at the resort pool, I would highly recommend the Beach Club. There are also quite a few restaurants to choose from at this resort alone including Cape May Cafe, Yachtsman Steakhouse, and Beaches and Cream Soda Shop.

    The Polynesian is also a fabulous resort with excellent theming. Its location is prime since it is on the monorail line. I see that you are going in October and based on some of your other questions that you plan on going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. So, this could be the spot for you since it is so close and trip back to your resort a quick one after a fun-filled spooktacular night! Some of the rooms at the Polynesian are larger than others which can be a huge factor if you have a family of 5. We stayed in the Tokelau building which does have these spacious rooms. You can request this building, however requests cannot be guaranteed and are based on availability.

    I hope you find the perfect resort for your family, but know that no matter where you stay, the magic awaits!
