We have 3 young daughters as well, and we have been 3 times with the Grandparents. We always stay at the Poly and get connecting rooms. The girls have a lot more room, and can go between rooms as they please. For us, convienience is the key; on the monorail, easy access to MK or Epcot, and you can walk to the TTC. We always request one of the longhouses closest to the TTC: Tahiti, Rapa Nui, or Tokelau(currently being refurbished). It's just a short walk from there, and you can use the express monorail to MK, or get on the EP monorail. There's also a parking lot on that end that's a lot closer to get to. As far as construction, Tokelau will be finished soon, then they will be moving to the other end of the resort to work, if the schedule is correct. That's just my opinion; we love the Poly!

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Thanks. We stayed at the poly this year and loved it!! That is part of why I am having a hard time wondering if we should try somewhere new or not as that is the only onsite stay we have done?! But it was amazing. The girls loved seeing the castle from the pool so I know they would love tpv at CR but just not sure if I can give up the poly and our middle dd wants to try akl but i am worried about how far it is from mk and epcot where we will spend time mostly.

Our girls will be 6, 5 and 18 months at trip time.

We have considered others; before we had kids, my wife and I stayed at WL and loved it. But for the convenience to everything, you can't beat the Poly. Before our last trip we told them about WL, but they would have none of it. They wanted their Polynesian!
I love having all girls; I can't imagine having 3 boys-especially at Disney! We have twins who will turn 10 next month, and a 7 year-old. The first time we went, the twins were 4 and our youngest was only 2. I would tell anyone, the younger your children, the better you will love the Poly. When you need that midday break, it makes it so much easier. Hope you have fun wherever you decide to stay.

Have a great trip! you are leaving soon!!

I definitely agree about having all girls!!! it is the best!! Magic Kingdom is definitely catered to girls I think!! we have only stayed at the poly and I am worried I am missing out on other resorts but we loved it there and our girls want to go back there too! we are taking the grandparents next year and hope they love it as much as we do!!

Have a great time!

This is why you should try the CR/GF. You can get rid of the what if? bug in your head. They are both nice resorts and you will still be at WDW so it's not like your trip will be ruined if you end up realizing you like the Poly more...

I did want to try GF or cR however when I showed my kids they werent too impressed and picked poly again. They (and me too) were not too impressed with the rooms at GF or the splash pad. I thought being new it would be bigger. One thing keeping me from CR is not having a zero entry pool as we will have an 18 month with us.
