Oh no...another WWYD...Poly or WL????

Yes my DISfriends another WWYD question...

Here's the breakdown~

4 of us, myself, DD8, DD6, & DD5

November 13-16th, 2012

So far, Pop Century for November 13th, and we are doing MVMCP on November 15th

It has to be Club level (snack room for my )

The girls want Polynesian, and we are currently booked there GV CL

I stayed WL CL and LOVED IT!!! I am thinking of changing (shocker for those who know me) It's not a big $$ savings...I just want the trip perfect..

WL is one building and enclosed (in case it's a bit chilly), and the CL there is AWESOME!

The girls have never stayed at either...I doubt I will change since the girls really are pulling for Poly, but I am curious of other's input..

Thanks !!!!

BTW, I vote WL. If I was taking my kids by myself, I would rather be at a resort where everything is all under one roof.

I voted for Poly GV CL . We've stayed WL CL and Poly GV (not CL) and although we love the WL and loved CL there, the Poly is our absolute favorite resort. We are trying Poly CL in July 2013 and I couldn't be more excited to combine CL with our favorite resort. The Poly is just so relaxing with the tropical atmosphere, walking around at night under the lit tiki torches, a view of the castle from just about anywhere on the grounds (with a view from the CL lounge that I hear is amazing), and the beach for relaxing in a hammock . With all of that said, both the WL and Poly are great resorts and we do love the WL, but the Poly will always be our favorite .

Too funny! I just voted for Poly CL, but for the same reason you voted for WL - that she's taking the kids by herself! (Although my vote was related to transportation.)

I voted Poly GV CL. I think it all comes down to which theme and location you prefer.

My biggest transportation issue was the post MVMCP transportation....both the Poly and WL boats are awesome...but we can monorail it to Epcot when we go there too from Poly

I like them both..but I really think WL screams Christmas, and it's easier to navigate...oh boy, I'm even more confused

Speaking as a male -- really, 3 girls want Poly and you are thinking of WL? Are you NUTS?

I know who is in charge - the girls!
