We went to Disney for the first time last May and stayed off-site for the first 4 days, then at the Beach Club for 3 nights. We are going again in October and are doing the same thing, only in reverse (3 nights on Disney property, then 4 nights off-site). This time we want to stay at one of the hotels on the monorail - Contemporary, Polynesian or Grand Floridian (sorry, I am too new to use all the abbreviations without making a fool of myself, so bear with me. lol) We have 2 kids, ds will be 7 1/2 when we go in October, and dd will be just over 2. What I REALLY wanted was a Tower, theme park view room at the Contemporary, but it's unavailable for the dates we want. I could change the dates, but I am counting on the discount I can get from my uncle who is a cast member, and only the Garden Wing rooms are available for that. So.. Which would you recommend? If I keep my original dates (Oct 18-21) we can stay at the Poly or the Grand Floridian. If I change my dates we can stay at either of those or the Contemporary in the Garden Wing. Are they all equally kid friendly? Equally "nice"? Is there any reason that the contemporary would be worth changing the dates for, even though we'd be in the Garden Wing? Which is easiest w/ kids with regard to access to the monorail, etc? We'll plan our MK days for the days when we are on-property, and we'll probably do MNSSHP as well. Thanks for any advice!
