What's a good option for 2 adults, 3 kids (one is a baby) -- for SPACE?

Is there a good option other than staying off property?

I'd love to stay on the monorail just for ease, but that seems like a pipe dream. We really do need more than one "living space" because of the baby. Are there any options on the monorail aside from the DVC at Contemporary (drawing a blank on the name right now!).. should we look into renting points from a member possibly?

Well the grand Floridian is building villas right now if you could wait for them. The poly is one my favorites and that is just a beautiful resort. The contemporary i think is a great place as well and they do have Bay Lake tower which is the DVC hotel that is more luxurious then some of the others. It's all about the amenities you think you need.

disney lover at heart

The Family Suites, either at AofA or All Star Music (probably the cheaper option) would be a great fit. Separate bedroom, two bathrooms, small kitchenette, two TV's, etc.

To get your own space you'd need either a 1 bedroom DVC villa at BLT,to be on monorail or WLV which us still in MK area and a boat ride to MK. There's also the cabins at FW. You could try David's for point rentals.

Then there's the Value resort family suites, but not on monorail. I think OKW and SSR are the cheapest DVC resorts.
