Our dates would be something like Sat-Wednesday at Grand Floridian, and Wednesday-Saturday at the Swan and Dolphin.

Here is the cost breakdown:

GF Garden View Spring Room Offer 4/13-4/17 $1,953

Swan 4/17-4/20- AAA rate + 1 night free starwood points= $476

Total- $2,249 for 7 nights or $347 per night

Another option would be 4/13-4/14 at the Swan and 4/14-4/20 at the boardwalk villas for $1,984. Total $283 per night

Finally, we could stay all 7 nights at the Swan for $1,428 or $204 (that includes the resort fee)
I just looked at the Disney website, and for non-discounted rooms at GF and Poly, the Poly is less expensive than GF, though both are quite expensive. For the Poly to be more expensive than GF, the only way would be some kind of unevenly-applied discount, and you'd have to be getting a much bigger discount percentage on GF than on Poly. I'd check out the Poly again, making sure to select a standard (garden) view room.

But having said that, I'd stick with one place for the week. I've had to do split stays in the past, and I've always hated having to switch resorts mid-week. A lot of time is wasted in the process of moving. The Swan probably wouldn't be a bad place to be for a week.
