CR and Poly are the only ones where a daybed is guaranteed as all rooms have them. Most rooms at the GF have a daybed, but there are some that do not. We are a family of 4 and on our December 2010 trip, we were assigned a dormer room that did not have a daybed. We were able to change rooms and get a daybed, but there is a chance of not getting a daybed if one is not available.

If you are strictly going with distances to all 4 parks, OKW and SSR and POR and POFQ are the most centrally located to all 4 parks.

Transportation is something I never factor in when considering a resort. There is no resort with perfect transportation to all 4 parks, due to the size of WDW.

So much to think about!!

It seems that CR is a front-runner. This was my thinking too. I'm also looking verly closely at WL, so I'm not relying on the unreliable monorail.

We stayed at Poly last December, and while it was nice, the monorail was down 3 of the 9 days, and transport those 3 days was such a headache! From what I've learned on the DISboards, when the monorail is working, it's the best, but it's a fickle means of transportation.

YC is a close 3rd. I've been kind of saving the EPCOT resorts for when the kids are older and our trips are more EP based. Right now, because it's only a 5 day trip (because of the 4 night Disney Cruise we're trying this year!) the parks will be pretty evenly distributed, which is making this decision so difficult!! MK might edge out the other parks as far as frequency of visit. Which points to CR or WL.

I hadn't even considered SSR, but, it looks really, really nice! And, since I'm bussing to 3 of the 4 parks at WL, and 2 of the 4 (or 3 of the 4 if the monorail is down) at CR, maybe just have a nice bus ride to 4 of 4? It's so hard to decide!!!!!!!

Any flaws in my logic? Am I missing something? Thanks for the help, keep it coming!!
