POLY, CR or BC??

We just returned from our first onsite stay and it was only two nights and way too short!!! So I am planning our week long stay for next February!!! We stayed Poly and loved it for convenience and the resort is beautiful! I have always wanted to stay CR but not sure my 3 DDs will like it....the other one I am tempted to try is Beach club...what are transporation options like there? we will be at MK for two if not three days, so I am still leaning towards monorail resort.

When will deals for February be released? I think we booked in October this year for room only but am hoping for free dining or s/p/d again as we want dining plan this time and need fix where this time we already had tickets

I would probably stick with the Poly if I am travelling with 3 daughters. If your girls are older (i.e. 8 and up) then they may love the pool at the BC but I find that with younger kids I worry about them at the BC because the pool is sooooo big that if they wander off I start to panic. The Poly and CR are nice and contained. The CR may just be a bit boring in terms of theming. If walking to the MK is a priority and your kids can overlook the theming then the CR is great. I just think that the Poly offers everything (theming, location and a nice pool)

I love the Poly and would probably pick it out of your choices. We have stayed at the CR twice and are not big fans. I can't comment on Beach Club as we've not stayed there ( although I will be staying in the villas in June on my girls trip)

All three resorts are wonderful! When DD was younger we stayed at either Poly or CR and loved them for different reasons but we probably prefer Poly over Cont just because of theming and you can just walk over to TTC to catch monorail for Epcot. I would suggest going to Cont to shop! Now that DD is older we tried the BC and loved it. It is brighter than the Poly, loved the slide, and loved the closeness to Epcot which is were we usually spend our evenings. Just my opinions but remember you can't go wrong with any of them, have a great time!

I prefer the Poly over the CR because of the theming, pool where you can see the castle, and the ability to walk to the TTC to get to Epcot.

YC/BC is a great resort -- we stayed there several times when my DD was little -- she loved the pools there. Some people don't like the pool since it's big and you can't see the whole thing from one lounge chair -- that didn't bother us since we were in there with her having fun. There is also a large, shallow sandy play area -- great for little ones. BC would let you walk/boat to Epcot and DHS, but you have to take the bus to the MK. So it might depend on how many days you plan to be at Epcot + HS.

They are all great choices, really, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
