2 adults 3 children & a baby, where to stay?

I am currently trying to plan our 2nd disney trip. Our first trip was in April 2011 with our 3 children and we stayed at POP. Disney magic happened on that trip apparently and we now have a #4!

So, from our previous experience, Pop was really cramped for us. We spent like no time at the resort though, never even swam at the pools, because we planned a park each day for 5 days and had the DlxDP. It was busy. This time I would like to extend our stay and take things slooooooower. We also rented a car last time, but will not be renting this time, so relying soley on disney transport. I didnt really like how far away Pop was from everything and after being at a park all day, I was SO jealous and dreaming of the monorail resorts.

We'd like to go in August or September, depending on what deals come out for the rest of the year. I may tentatively book something now, we do have a PIN for the dates of 8/11-9/27 up to 35% off resort only. Might be the best deal we get.

Our children will be ages 13,9,4 and 1. My 1st thought was to stay at a monorail resort for convenience, having small children and a stroller in tow. I like the Poly or CR. I am in sticker shock though, going from value to dlx is quite the difference! Im also worried about room size. The rooms look like the same set-up as the Pop value rooms but maybe more sq footage. The AoA rooms look really nice, but the price is almost as much as dlx and again, no monorail. Ive also looked at BC/YC. No monorail there, but closer to Epcot & HS. Ive tried pricing out WL but for some reason it wont let me. We exceed the max persons I guess? Then there's POR which is DIRT cheap (why is it so cheap?) but would be cramped again. Ive also debated splitting our stay 1/2 POR and 1/2 DLX so we could afford a longer/cheaper stay. Looking at 7 nights, would love to make it 8 or 9.

So what would you suggest? Do we need a villa? Isnt that even more than a dlx standard room resort? Or should we go for POR or even maybe ASM or AoA? Im so confused. And if we go deluxe, which one? Poly, CR or BC/YC? I dont see too much talk about the CR? Do people not like it?

Sorry this is long!!! I appreciate all your help
