We stayed at Boardwalk in 2011 and the kids (7&9) loved the pool and resort. This time we are staying at the Beach Club in April because of the pool. Kids are older and want more to do. Plus, I'm closer to Beaches and Cream!

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

We stayed at the Beach Club last August, and we're hooked!!!!

My kids are total water rats, and they could live at StormAlong Bay!!! We all loved it.

And the resort is gorgeous, peaceful and luxurious.

My vote is for the Beach Club!

I have stayed at both and thought both were lovely resorts. I have been to the BC multiple times and the BWI once. I will be returning to both this year. I think that you should look at the pics of the resorts and decide which theme/pool/etc appeals more to your family. Maybe have your teens look and they can vote? Or the whole family can vote? Either way you will be in a great resort.

Thanks for all of the great advice. I have to say we are now leaning toward the beach club after reading all of the posts. We are really hoping to get a room with 2 queens and a daybed which was part of the reason we were originally leaning toward the BWI. Kids don't want to sleep in the same bed. How available are these types of rooms at BC? Also, do both places have somewhere to get a quick bite to eat in the morning? We don't need a big breakfast everyday, but need somewhere to get some juice, coffee, & muffins/bagels...stuff like that.

A daybed would have to be requested as not all rooms come with one. Keep in mind that it is just a request and is not guaranteed. Parties of 5 are given preference for those rooms, but even then it's not a guarantee as it may not be available. If that happens, a roll away would be provided. As far as quick service, there is the Marketplace located at the back of the BC gift shop that has grab-n-go items for a quick breakfast.
