If you split stay... MK area & Boardwalk area

Looking at options and just curious....

If you split your stay between a MK area resort: GF, Poly, CR, BLT, WL
and
a Epcot DHS resort: BC, BWI, YC,

which two would you choose?

BLT and BWV - now would do BCV but already own at BWV and it is just easier for me.

besides for visiting both DHS and Epcot - BWV is walking distance to both - the boat is fun but not faster.

now for just Epcot - BCV can't be beat.

If we had to choose we would choose WL (our favorite resort) for our MK resort and BC for the Epcot resort. But you really can't go wrong all Disney resorts are fabulous!

Enjoy your trip

We are addicted to the monorail/Epcot area split stay! If I were choosing my two favorites, I'd say Poly and BC. Poly has great theming and history, great dining options, and the monorail direct to MK and direct to Epcot (from TTC) makes it the most convenient resort on the monorail for us. BC is a long-time favorite resort overall, for theming, atmosphere and room decor. And it's hard to pass up a stay at BC if we plan on using the pool - SAB is wonderful and by far our favorite pool on property.

But it does depend on the circumstances and specific plans for a particular trip. In October, we're choosing BC because it's our favorite and then CR because it's just one night of the split and we're going to MNSSHP that night. In January, we're staying at Poly because it's our favorite, and then BWI because we LOVE CL there, really enjoy the waterfront view, won't be using the pool as much, and have stayed at YC/BC six times already over the past three years. (Although nothing is set in stone - still thinking of changing that to a Poly/BC split!)

I would choose Bay Lake, and Beach Club. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the MK or Epcot resorts.

We would do the same but only for a 10-12 night trip.... No splits liked in our group but if a must.... 5 and 5 or 6 and 6..... BC and WL ,. Why, cause we've stayed at both and WL is right got the price and theming over the overpriced monorail resorts and the BC is closest to EPCOT's back door!

My favorite split is the MK/Boardwalk area split! Best of both worlds!

Love the Poly/BWI split, and the WL/BWI split the best.

would depend on the season for me

if winter or Christmas WL/YC if summer Poly/YC or BC I love BC but last time we stayed there we didn't get a full balcony so I'm kinda leaning towards YC for a guaranteed balcony
