We are heading to WDW for our our first trip in November. It will be myself, my husband, my 12 year old son, and my 10 year daughter. I have spent hours on the room finder….hours!….trying to decide between the Poly and the BC. I have also looked at similar threads on this same topic, but of course, no situation is exactly the same as ours. We will only be staying for 4 days, so splitting between the two resorts is not really an option we want to consider.
Poly advantages for us:
- Transportation to MK (will probably spend 2 days there)
- Pool View rooms with full balconies (Samoa building)
BC advantages for us:
- The pool!
- Better food options as my children aren’t’ really into polynesian food
We will be spending limited time at HS and Epcot, so the location to these parks is not a significant factor. I would consider BC immediately, except we really look forward to a full balcony and pool view, and there appear to be limited rooms of this sort at BC. And the room finder showed SO MANY views of a tar and gravel roof when I chose full balcony as an option. Or a “sort of” pool view beyond the tar and gravel roof. I would be really sad if that’s what we ended up with for our first trip to WDW.
Can anybody help? I seem to be emotionally attached to the BC for some reason, but can anybody recommend a room with a full balcony without the awful view? Where we live we have access to beautiful lake views often, so we would prefer the novelty of a pool view over a lagoon/lake view.
Thank you so much in advance for reading my rambling email.
