We've stayed at Animal Kingdom, the Polynesian, and Coronado Springs and have attended special events in the Grand Floridian and a few other Disney properties. After our recent 5 day stay in July 2014, Disney's Beach Club Villas are by far our favorite place to stay.
Our room was a 2 room suite with a pullout couch and a king size bed. It included a full kitchen along with a bathroom configured for privacy in the shower, bathtub, and toilet simultaneously. The bathroom has an odd arrangement of doors, but it definitely simplifies the getting ready process if privacy is necessary. The room also had a balcony overlooking the smaller of the two pools.
The larger pool is pretty amazing. It's basically a small water park in and of itself. It includes a massive slide along with a whirlpool and lazy river. Swimming against the current in the lazy river is a great way to get some exercise.
The villas are situated in the Epcot area so if you plan to spend most of your time at Epcot, it's a fairly short walk or bus ride away. And though I didn't get to use it, it appeared to be a great place to stay if you're a runner. I did some running at the Coronado Springs which included a lot of guest dodging. The villas appeared to have more space and less traffic on the attached walking path.
