I would definitely choose the Poly. Because, I'm a Poly fanboy, and because I truly believe that it's the best resort on property. I just posted a long explanation as to why in this thread.

I'm not sure of the square footage of the rooms at the YC but at the Poly the rooms are mostly 415 square feet and in some buildings 476 square feet. The breakdown as to which rooms are in which buildings can be found in post #3 of the Poly Info Thread.

I'm sure that whichever you choose, you'll have a great trip. The YC is beautiful in its own way. I just prefer the Polynesian.

We've stayed at both and the Polynesian is our favorite.

The rooms are huge,
The grounds are relaxing
You'll be close to MK
the Electric Light Parade in the water is fun for the kids.

we liked the Yacht but my kids who were about 13 and 15 thought the Polynesian was more kid friendly.

Given that you are a family of 5 and will spend the bulk of your time at MK, Poly is the no brainer. I absolutely love the BC/YC too, but the value of that guaranteed (larger) daybed and room plus a 5 min monorail ride to the MK cannot be overstated.

Have fun!
