Family of 6-my options
I was originally looking at a 5 night budget trip with myself, DH, DD8, DD6, DS3, DD 9 mos. The "budget trip" where we were all going to squeeze into POR is now turning into 6 nights at the Poly.
The cheapest option for a family of 5 plus an infant is POR. I'm not even worried about the sleeping arrangements, I'm more worried about the lack of space for all of our luggage and double stroller. Otherwise, the price is right, and the pool is fine.
So then I started looking into ASMu Suites. We would have more room, but then the kids wouldn't have a pool slide (we always stay at BC, but I don't think SAB will be feasible this trip, as we have an infant, plus it's just my husband and I...we aren't bringing a parent to help this time.) We also have never stayed value so I'm worried we will be disappointed.
Then I just happened to price out the Poly, and although that would take our "budget trip" to a whole other level, I now can't change my mind and want to stay here. We'd have plenty more space than at POR, we could take the monorail to Epcot and MK, as to not have to fold up a double stroller to get to all 4 parks, and we've been wanting to stay at the Poly for a while (but were going to wait until a big 2014 summer trip.) The pool would also be perfect for DH and I to be able to watch our older 2, while caring for our younger 2.
Will it really be that terrible in POR? Yeah, right? Will I be that disappointed in a value?
Will it even be hot enough to swim the second week of November, or should we stick with BC because it's a little cheaper than Poly?
I do not want to rent DVC points.
Lastly, we always have help on our trips from one of our mothers, and this time we will have 4 kids and no help...any insight?
