Well, I have never done that, but I think it would be really nice to have a split stay of Poly and Boardwalk...though, I might choose Beach Club over Boardwalk only because I have stayed at Boardwalk before, and I've stayed at YC before--so BC is the only one in the Epcot area I haven't tried out yet.

We did BLT/BCV last week.....i think reversing the order would have been better. As far as accommodations, it was like going from the Ritz Carlton to the Courtyard Marriot. But it was nice having the proximity to each area for half the stay.

I have stayed at CR, BLT, Poly, FW, BC, and BCV. My favorite split was BCV/BLT. I own DVC and enjoy having the extra space. When doing a split stay, I like at least 3 nights at each resort. Happy planning!

We have never done a split stay and have never stayed at BC, BWI, or YC. As far as the MK resorts go, we love the Poly! I would pick Poly and BC.

Best of both worlds and we love splitting between MK resort and Epcot resort.

We start out at the MK resort -- we love Poly and CR and would choose either one. Right now I'm going to be booking a March trip and think I'll go with Poly. That way, I'll plan a dinner at Ohana and we'll do the Spirit of Aloha one night too. We'll plan most time in MK and one day at AK. Other meals at CR and GF.

We like doing the relaxing part last, so we choose BC for that. We love the quiet walks to Epcot, dinners in the countries, relaxing at the BC pool, surrey bike ride around the water, walk to mini golf. To us, that's the best way to end our trip.

We do this most every trip. Not fans of buses we stay at BLT 1/2 and BCV 1/2-sometimes BWV. Concentrate on MK while at BLT, EPCOT/DHS while at BCV. Its great.

My dream split stay would be Poly / BC. Poly is our favorite resort, but we LOVE LOVE LOVE the BC location. So why not have both!! Hey, that's an idea for our next trip. Thanks!

That's exactly what I was thinking the other day! We love the Poly and to be honest, I'm actually "scared" to stay elsewhere again, afraid that I'll regret not staying at the Poly, but I also love the idea of staying at a resort where you can walk to EPCOT, since we spend the majority of our time there.
