Help me choose!

I got a great rate over Labor Day weekend for 3 nights. Either $212 a night at Poly OR $198 a night at BC. Now I can't decide where to stay!

A little background on us: we are AP's and go the parks often, so aren't as concerned about hitting the parks commando style. We will probably go into a park or 2 but likely not all day and mostly want to enjoy the resort, and do a character meal at one of the resorts depending on where we end up staying. We have a DD who is 5 and a DS who will be 3.
We have stayed at BC before for 1 night only, renting DVC points, but have never stayed at Poly.

Part of me thinks BC would be better, since I know the kids would love Stormalong Bay, and we can walk into Epcot so easily. BUT on the other hand I feel like we could Never afford to stay at the Poly otherwise. Should we jump on this chance to stay there? Poly will be having so much construction done at the time, so no fun pool for us to use that is super convenient and who knows what the beach will look like at that time. So I am not sure how enjoyable it would be for the kids.

Help me please! What would you choose?

The great deal comes from everyone jumping ship from the poly bc the construction is so massive even taking the main pool out at times! I'd call poly and ask what will be impacted at that time!

I would absolutely choose Beach Club. From what I understand, the Poly won't have much to offer at that time. We are a couple hours away and take resort-only trips every now and then. I wouldn't want to hang out in a construction site, and you want to enjoy the resort...

Plus, the BC rate is cheaper!
