Let me hear your suggestions!
Why wouldn't you just stay at BWI for the week?

Got major pixie dust last year and spent 6 days at the Poly in a TPV room. Best view EVER. I will miss that place

Love the GF. The views, the lobby, the atmosphere! Just beautiful! Stayed there years ago. Can't wait for GF DVC so we can stay again! Have a great time!

I can tell you what I just did we have YC booked for August, and just decided to come in 2 days early, so booked GF for 2 nights.

We also love Poly, but I wanted to try someplace new, in the MK area, since our other stay is in Epcot area We've stayed at both WL & Poly, loved both. CR just doesn't appeal to us.

GF, always. By far the nicest stay I've ever had. Totally worth the money if you have it.

Poly. I've been dying to go swimming in the volcano pool. That's literally the only reason right now.

For any other reason though? GF. I liked what I saw when I was there last Spring even if I wasn't staying there.

Contemporary MK view is my dream...

I don't know if I will ever be financially able to stay there! It would need to involve a major discount...

Absolutely that would be my choice. Since the rest of your stay is in the Epcot area, it would be convenient to stay in the MK area for those couple of days. It may help you consolidate transportation time and issues.
