Help Me Decide!

Here's the delimma. Ok, we are currently booked at the Poly. We love the Poly and have stayed there for the past 3 years , but I kind of want to try a new resort, my husband doesn't care either way but he does seem to be leaning more towards the Poly. The other resort I am considering is the YC. We spend most of our time in EPCOT so I think this will be a huge plus.

Now here's where it gets tricky. We are currently booked on a free dining BB offer. It's my understanding that certain resorts only have so many rooms reserved for BB offers and/or free dining. Do you think we would even be able to switch to YC, if that's what we decided, and maintain the free dining BB offer?

So, for those of you who have stayed at the Poly and the YC, if you were deciding between the Poly and the YC, which one would you pick and why?

We've stayed at the Poly (which is our favorite resort), and although we haven't stayed at the YC, that is on our list of resorts to try. With that said, I think giving YC a try is a good idea, especially since you spend so much time at Epcot as you can't beat being within walking distance to Epcot (and DHS). As far as changing resorts and keeping FD, that depends on whether or not there is a room available at the YC under the FD BB offer. If you decide to call about changing resorts and a CRO CM is not able to check availability and make the change, ask to speak with someone in Guest Services and they will be able to help you. If the YC is available under your BB offer, it shouldn't be a problem for Guest Services to make the change. Good luck.

That is something to think about. We didn't go to Captain Cooks a whole lot but it was nice having it right there nearby for when we did, we always stay in Fiji.

That's what I'm thinking. While we do spend quite a bit of time in MK, the majority of our time is in EPCOT.

Thank you for the replies!! Ok, I think first things first. I need to call Guest Services to see the YC even has a room available with the BB offer I have.

Keep the comments coming!

Between the two, we chose Poly. We choose based on theme and YC just doesn't do it for us.

Ok, we ended up staying with Poly but hopefully we'll find time to visit BC/YC to see if that's where we would like to stay in the future. We are definitely visiting the other monorail resorts this time, it's been 20 years since I've been in those!!!

I think that you made the right decision. I have stayed at the YC (I also spend a lot of time at Epcot) but I still prefer the Poly

While I think the YC is beautiful, the Poly has the relaxing feel, romance, and you can see the castle.

It's a tough call for my family, but it sounds like you really like the Poly so I think you're making the right decision sticking with it. Visiting the YC/BC is a great idea... Check out Beaches and Cream (they have amazing sundaes there).
