Monorail resorts & renting points

Have been to WDW several times, but currently planning first onsite stay and it's also the 1st Disney trip for our kids (DD6, DS3, D?4mos at time of trip). We're considering monorail resorts mostly since we want to head back for midday naps and rest. (We are not commando-paced people anyway. 10+ continuous hours in a park was not our style even before kids.) We know they are pricier and have been saving money with that in mind; we think of it as paying for convenience, which we are willing to do when the kids are little.

I LOVE the theming of Poly, the option to watch Wishes from the beach, and its amazing location. Have been leaning mostly to Poly and my heart is probably there, to be honest. I'm second guessing having us all in one room though. Especially since the baby will likely awaken during the night and disturb the other two kids.

Looked into renting points at BLT for a 1BR. We would put the older two in the bedroom, so that DH and baby and I could have access to the kitchen, balcony, etc without waking the other two. Would also be really nice to have the kitchen for prepping some of our own meals. There's nothing exciting to me about the decor, but I can get over that. We would need to do standard view, too, so no castle views for us.

And...I feel nervous about renting DVC. Should I? Does it go smoothly? As I understand, there's no ME or dining plan when you rent - is that accurate?

I know WL is another option. I don't dig the theming... That's just me. I would love it for a different type of vacation, but it doesn't have the right feel to me for a warm weather location.

Sorry such a long post!! Would love any advice you have to offer.
