First of all, thank you to all for your helpful replies! However, I'm just as indecisive now as I was before, now just with more options to be indecisive about! I've absolutely ruled out AKL (as stated previously), GF (I just can't see myself enjoying myself there for some reason), YC and Boardwalk Inn. Allow me to rationalize each of my short list choices, then all of you experts can again weigh in: Poly While this still remains my top choice, the threat of GCH, DVC, and pool closure would just be too disruptive for our enjoyment. Even if our longhouse wasn't affected, the GCH being torn up and/or the pool being unusable would be a real downer. Obviously, I will confirm the dates as they firm up, but with my luck, it just seems likely that something won't be as magical as I want. I know, on all other fronts, it meets my criteria, but my as much as my heart wants to say "yes" to the Poly, my head is telling me "no." Wilderness Lodge On paper, WL seems like a good next logical choice for us. It's close to MK, has more than one transportation option. However, the restaurants there don't seem too appealing (also no character dining), and the theming in the rooms makes my eyes sad. It also seems a little less "deluxe" than the others. Since we will be spending a fair amount of time at our resort and in our room (both for naptime and our "down" days that we have planned), having a visually appealing room is pretty important to me. So yeah, I've pretty much talked myself out of that option. Contemporary Transportation-wise, this seems the next best option to the Poly. I'm trading off the convenience to the TTC for the short walk to MK, which is a good trade. I LOVE the decor of the rooms, but I've read the rest of the resort feels a bit "sterile," and having a bit of theming is important to me. However, I do like the fact that there are some good dining options onsite (I know Chef Mickey's isn't "good" per se, but it is a character meal), and we can easily hop on the Monorail for dining visits to GF and Poly. My main hesitation here is the pool. It just looks "blah," and we plan on visiting the pool likely once daily. What are everyone's thoughts on the CR pool? Either way, CR is on the shortlist. Although Garden Wing is a definite "no." Beach Club So, while not a MK resort, we are planning on 2 days at Epcot and 1 day at HS. This seems like it could be pretty convenient for those 3 days, leaving only our 2 MK days as "bus" days. Obviously, the pool there is amazing, and it's close to the fun stuff at Boardwalk, which is a big plus for my husband who gets really bored while the toddler and I are napping. I do have a number of questions about BC, however. How "easily walkable" is HS from BC? Or is the boat a better option? Multiple choices are so important to me How far is it to walk to the Boardwalk area? In additional to Cape May Cafe, I can find another character meal over at Swan, but I'm assuming that the DxDP isn't accepted there. Is this correct? What is everyone's experience with the Sandcastle Club at BC? I have read that the counter service restaurants at YC/BC get insanely busy. Is there overflow seating? I don't like carrying around trays of food in a futile effort to find a place to seat. Is it possible to get the Monorail to MK from BC without passing through Epcot? We're not doing park hoppers. Or is the bus really our only option (we are not renting a car)? So, I think that's it for now. Looks like a toss up between CR and BC. Thanks again, everyone!
