Poly vs. WL

Ok, not to throw a wrench in this conversation, but a travel agent friend of mine highly recommended the Polynesian...however, it would be a basic room. Between WLV and Poly garden view room (not suite), which would you choose??? The price would be exactly the same. Just wondering which would suit our family. Thanks so much for all your responses!

I've never stayed at the Poly, but personally I'd stick with the WLV to have separate sleeping space because I don't sleep well in a room with my kids. But if that isn't an issue for you, and if you don't plan on spending much time in the room anyway, then the Poly might work for you.

We stayed at the Polynesian in a theme park view room for our first trip. We had our two nieces with us (and our four yr old son) and the room was great for the five of us. Plus it was nice seeing the castle from our patio (we were on the third floor of Tahiti - it was Moorea when we booked it). Easy to catch the monorail to Epcot (just a quick walk to the Ticket and Transportation Center from the Polynesian) or take the monorail or a boat to the MK (and we could take the larger ferry from the TTC as well).

When you say the VWL (Villas at Wilderness Lodge) villa - one bedroom I'm guessing - is the same as the Polynesian garden view, are you sure? Unless you are purchasing a reservation from a DVC member (called "renting DVC points"). A studio would not be separate rooms. The living area is the sleeping area.

Both the Cubs Den at WL and the Neverland Club at the Polynesian are very good kids' clubs.

The Poly is our favorite resort and although we do love the WL, if having a kitchen and washer/dryer isn't a necessity, I would go with the Poly. We love the Poly for many reasons, with a few of them being the beach for watching the fireworks with a short walk back to your room afterwards, the volcano pool that backs up to the beach with a distant view of the castle, Captain Cooks for quick CS meals/snacks, being on the monorail and just 2 stops from the MK, and being just a 5-7 minute walk from the TTC to catch the Epcot monorail. Good luck.
