Beach Club or Yacht Club in August???

We will be traveling for 8-9 nights in August and staying in a standard room.
It will be me, DH, and our 3 girls - ages 10, 8, and 4 (who will be in a stroller)

I know these resorts share the same great pool! But we are split as to where to stay in August.

DH says YC. A full balcony is very important to him as a way to have some alone time at the end of a long day. I know a full balcony is a possibility at BC, but with also wanting a day bed I am not sure how easily both requests would be granted.

I say BC because of the closer proximity to Epcot. I do worry about the "hustle bustle" some say about the BC in the lobby. I think we would welcome the quiet more on this vacation. We have only stayed at POP and I can't imagine it is anything equivalent to the chaos that exists in the POP food court at busy times. However, we do have kids who like to be kids and don't want to feel too "loud" for YC either.

Otherwise, I don't think we have a clear preference as to theme, specific location, etc. Are the standard rooms more preferable in one over the other?
I think BC is closer to refillable mug station (don't think that really matters).

I guess what I am wondering is how much further of a walk is it to Epcot from YC? Is it considerable or just a minute or 2? Can some of the walk between resorts be done inside the resort instead of in the August heat?

Or... how much would we miss a full balcony. For those of you who like the alone time, is it just too hot in August (even in the evenings) to utilize that balcony anyway.

Anything else I should consider before making the choice? Tell me why you choose one over the other. We are completely on the fence right now

Thank you so much for your help.
