    Hi! We've narrowed things down to picking two out of: three studios at Poly, three studios at Beach Club and a grand villa at Old Key West. We're a family of six adults planning our seventh WDW trip. We've stayed at BCV and OKW before. Thanks!

    Hi there, Abigail!

    I'm just going to throw this right out there - I am absolutely in love with the Grand Villas. I love to vacation with friends and family. It always reminds me of vacations growing up with my dad's big family. Being all together in the same space makes it perfect for late night laughter and quiet morning coffee with friends. 

    I am also partial to Disney's Old Key West Resort. I love the location, and I find the rooms there so comfortable and very "Florida" feeling. It's nice to get a difference from my house in New Jersey.

    The studios are a great option for privacy, and you just can't find a better pool anywhere than at Disney's Beach Club Villas. Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows are just beautiful - tropical paradise perfection. I think, however, gaining the full kitchen and laundry facilities in the grand villa really adds to the vacation. We like to keep a couple of bottles of wine or soda in the fridge, and some snacks in the cupboard. It's also nice to have a place to make a quick breakfast. We can stumble in and out and make some toast or a cup of tea while everyone else is getting ready. I also always bring a deck of cards or a game with me, and when we're winding down from a long day at the parks, my friends like to sit and play a few hands of cards and chat! And having that washer and dryer means packing less. I love that.

    You've lined up three excellent choices. I hope you decide on the one that suits your plans perfectly.
