Booked BC but now thinking I should have done Poly.
 
It priced out for the 5 of us (me, dh, dd-15, ds13 and ds11) to be about 500 less for the BC. We have stayed at both before and loved them both for many reasons. Now I am wondering if I should have just gone with Poly. I booked for the fd but now dh is thinking we should go down Friday to Friday and just buy our own meals for two days.

Which one would you pick?:confused3

That's a hard choice!! I love both resorts. With Poly you get a larger room, and a beautiful resort, on monorail.
With BC the kids will like SAB better. I find the volcano pool at poly nice, but too small. Also BC is walking distance to 2 parks. Epcot is in your back yard, many dining options around World Showcase, and Boardwalk.

Good luck choosing! No bad choices here.

I would choose BC :)

This is exactly why we are doing a split stay in July! We LOVE BC, but we've also always wanted to stay at Poly....so we are going to do both. I know with FD, doing a split stay is a little more complicated since there is the issue of having to purchase tickets.

$500 is a big difference....I'd stay at BC if I were you. But if the $500 isn't an issue, then stay Poly.

Looking at your kids ages, I bet they would prefer the pool at BC over Poly.

I'm talking out of both sides of my mouth, aren't I? With good reason...since both resorts are A++++++!

Coming home to the tiki torches after a long day at the parks at the polynesian cant be beat. And monorail access from poly to all the parks is good enough for me.
My family and i arent much into swimming but when we do, love staring at the castle. Id enjoy bc but the whole time id feel like im missing out on the poly.

Id do the poly.

For $500, I'd keep the reservation at BC and go have a great meal at Ohana one night. We love both, but with the difference, I'd enjoy many strolls over to Epcot.:)

We love them both, so we tend to split. But I would go with whichever appeals to you more for this trip. You can't really go wrong either way -- they are both great!:goodvibes

We've stayed at both and while we did like the BC, the Poly would be our choice. The BC is great for being within walking distance to both Epcot and DHS, but the tropical surroundings, larger rooms, the beach, and good CS at the Poly would win out for us.

$500 is alot of money and at BC, you have easy access to both HS and epcot, plus you don't have to deal with the monorails, which can have issues sometimes.

Sounds like an awesome time to me. :thumbsup2

We think the BC is a better resort than the Poly so my vote would be BC even if it wasn't cheaper. We didn't like the separate buildings and the rooms that were badly in need of a refurbishment at the Poly. Your kids are the perfect age for the BC, too.

We prefer BC over Poly so that would be a no brainer for our family. Add into that $500 and you would have sealed the deal! Both resorts have their perks but I would stay at the Beach club if it were us and had no preference. $500 could be the down payment on your next stay (think bounce back :) )

I wouldnt change. I'd stick with the BC! :thumbsup2

Ok, I have never stayed at BC but I am dying to, so here's my two cents. I think with the ages of your kids, they will really enjoy the pool area at BC and also being so close to epcot and DHS. We are staying at poly for our upcoming trip, and while I do love it, we chose it mainly because I have 4 little kids-oldest is 8- and being on the monorail is key. We are planning another trip for feb '14, and leaving the 2 littlest ones at home, and we are finally going to try BC. It is a tough choice though. But I don't think you can go wrong either way!g
