OK, not for nothin', but DS3's vote is clearly for the Poly (since he will be able to SEE the castle)
Which looks like 3 solid Poly votes, 2 undecided and 1 vote for BC.

For DS11, SAB might be a better pool. But the Poly pool is awesome, and IMO, better for your other 3 kids. Also, with a family that big and the ages of yours, I think the monorail access to MK and the walking distance to the TTC is worth it's weight. They are both great resorts! I would do Poly now when you can really appreciate its location and BC later when the kids are older (LOL I keep saying that, and my kids now 17 and 15 refuse to switch to BC!)

They like the icons/POP theming DS11 is the only one who will do the slide, so he's fine waiting...

update....HRH Poly, DH Poly...time to "change the reservation" as DS3 would say

That's my thought too...BC is not going anywhere. And we are still sporting the double stroller The volcano pool is close to the beach right? So they can play in the sand too (a big plus of SAB right???)

I'm not getting too excited because I know you just a little too well.

The beach borders the zero entry side of the pool.

Just another reason I like being single. No one to cramp my Disney style. My DS is already brainwashed to love Disney, so the longer we stay the better he likes it (especially when Poly CL is involved!).

Look at post 473 one page back on this thread. It is a great shot of the zero-entry end of the pool, a small walkway between pool and beach, and then the beach with its rows of lounge chairs. From this shot, you really can't tell how big the beach is, but it is quite substantial. So the Poly has this one beach plus two others off to either side, that are also very big. Can you imagine the view of Wishes nightly from this spot? MK resorts guests are also treated to the wonderful EWP nightly. It starts at the Poly at 9PM.

Honestly, don't miss an opportunity to try this resort!

Ok, we are both having the same dilemma---BC or Poly?!?!

BUT, do I see that you've changed your ticker to Poly???

At least one of us has made a decision!

True....but I already heard back from the IPO. I asked to special order a birthday cake for our arrival day (DD 6th birthday). And it's all taken care of, when I tried to ask BC IPO for assistance with the same they gave me the cake hotline. So I am already feeling good about my choice

We have watched Wishes from the dock before when we did an O'Hana's dinner. It was amazing! My DH takes us to the Poly every trip and we stroll the grounds, we love the vibe. I took him overnight for our anniversary (his first actual stay) then I booked a GF Honeymoon room as a surprise the following day. We had BF at O'Hanas and hopped the monorail only to discover they overbooked the GF King room...I have YET to hear the end of moving him from his beloved Poly This will TOTALLY redeem me. The kids have never stayed there!

Dani is still waffling between POR and Pop. Over on the POR thread it seems everyone is trying to get an upgrade so I'm starting to really feel uneasy about booking there.

But you're not budging on Poly

I totally get what you're saying about threads though, when a thread is a "happy place" it makes you want the resort that much more...Pop is a happy place. THIS is a happy place (GF too but the construction, it's out for this trip~and you know DH is happy about that )

POR looks nice, and the pool has the cool slide BUT for us, POP seems easier to get around, and is a FUN atmosphere

Nothing to feel uneasy about...it's just the old "wanting something for nothing" and "entitlement" society we live in....because some have been given upgrades many more will try as well...obviously anyone would try to get Poly for the price of POR, makes sense! Oh wait...I had that.....

I love Pop. and you're right, it is all about the vibe. I'm not feeling the vibe there. This thread is such a happy place as well. I've never waggled when I booked the Poly.

There's been trips I couldn't afford more than Pop. I've always jUst been happy with what I can afford. Maybe next year but I'm really doubting it for this trip.
