Heart says Polynesian, head says Beach Club!

My husband and I are currently planning a romantic getaway without the kids in September of this year. It is the first time we take a trip without them. (DS6, DS3). It breaks my heart not to bring them but a little Mommy and Daddy time alone will be good for everyone, plus, it is for our 10th anniversary.

We chose to go in September because of low crowds and low prices and MNSSHP. Since we wanted to stay at a deluxe resort for the first time, the prices are at their lowest in Sept.

So here comes the dilemma, we always wanted to stay at the Polynesian. We love the tropical theme and the idea of having breakfast at Kona cafe most mornings. I love the idea of romantic evenings, sitting on the beach, watching the fireworks and the convenience of being on the monorail. I have to say that the Volcano pool is not that attractive to me with its small size and the fact that it always seems packed but hey, I can live with that!

We also looked into staying at the Beach club or Yatch club since we got married in Maine New England and it seemed a fitting theme for our anniversary trip. PLus being close to the boardwalk and Epcot is attractive, as well as having a water park at our doorstep. However it seems less romantic to me and the resort food option are less appealing to me than at the Polynesian. My husband does like working out at the gym and Beach club wins a point for that over the Poly that seems to have none.

It is not only the amenities that pulls us toward whichever resort. I checked prices and Poly is almost $800 more expensive than BC. We got a free dining pin but looked into using the room only discount offer instead. It comes out cheeper for us to use the room only discount since we can get our park hopper tickets using points with "Aeroplan". If we did the free dining we would have to take a 5 day park and room package. The room only discount offers 30% on YC or BC stays and only 20% at the Polynesian.

So the smart thing to do would be to save the money and stay at the BC or YC but my heart seems to ache when I think of not going to the Polynesian.
Any advise on what I should do?
