    Help. I can't decide where to stay. Daughters are 7, 4 & 11 mos. Husband wants a villa but I think the extra money for a villa won't be needed. We are considering a villa, Art of Animation fam suite or a garden room at the Polynesian. Any suggestion

    Hey Sabrina! Although I think all of your resort choices are great, I would personally choose Disney's Polynesian Resort. You just can't beat the location of this tropical paradise, except for maybe getting a Villa at Disney's Bay Lake Tower Resort.  I think you may find; however, that a villa will still come out more expensive than a garden view room at the Polynesian Resort. This resort location will be ideal for your family, especially with your "little one." You will be able to travel to and from Epcot and the Magic Kingdom via Disney's Monorail transportation, which is very convenient for those midday breaks/naps. Another plus to traveling to the parks via monorail is the fact that you will not have to close your stroller. I have traveled on the buses many times with small toddlers and it can be quite challenging to hold the collapsed stroller and a sleeping toddler. The rooms are also very spacious at the Polynesian Resort and accommodate up to five guests very comfortably. All rooms come equipped with a coffee maker and mini-refrigerator. The Nanea Volcano Pool, featuring a 40-foot high volcano with a waterfall and 142- foot tubular waterslide, also has a zero-degree entry area perfect for those "little nemos." Nearby is a children's wet-play area!  One of our favorite nighttime activities at the Polynesian Resort is to grab a seat on the beach overlooking the Seven Seas Lagoon and enjoy watching the Electrical Water Pageant and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular from the Magic Kingdom!  This makes for a Magical Evening! I hope this information helps in making your decision!  Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you!  Best wishes for a Magical Walt Disney World Vacation!
    Happy Planning,
    Jodie
