    I'm booking a 4-night trip in May, and I can't decide between the Boardwalk Inn and the Yacht Club. They both look so nice.

    Pertinent facts:

    -- We would be staying Club Level
    -- It's a short trip, so access to SAB isn't much of a draw
    -- We have stayed at CR in the past and LOVE it. I'd stay there again but it's too pricey right now.
    -- We've also stayed at Poly and liked it, but not as much as CR
    -- My kids will be 7, 4 and 20 months. We will have a stroller.
    -- We like the idea of walking to Epcot and are getting hoppers so we can pop in there most days if we want to eat in the WS.

    Any insight from those who have stayed both places?

    If you're doing club level and don't care about the pool, then it sounds like BWI would be best for you. I've heard great things about their CL (haven't stayed at it though). Personally, the YC appeals to me more, but we won't be doing CL there because I can see that it's a little more pared down than the awesome CL at the WL (which is our only other CL experience).

    I would stay at BWI. Personally with kids your age I would find the SAB to be too much. I prefer the Boardwalk pool as I can see every inch of the pool from one location so I can watch my children without having to run all over the place. When ours were 7 & 4 I could sit on the edge of the pool and watch our 4 year old swim while also watching our 7 year old go up the stars to the slide and come down.

    Your walk will also be a little shorter to EPCOT from BWI.

    Facing the same hard decision. Just my DH and I for a quick trip in March. Love to have a great view of the water. Input greatly appreciated! :)
