Mobile Is paying more for a resort worth it

You may of seen my posts but since changing flights pofq is not available for our stay.

Next options available are looking like beach club or wl. (Ssr was but now gone)

But it would cost us around an extra 2.5k (including adding on 3 more nights)

Is this really worth it or is it money better spent on another trip. I know its down to preference but just intrigued.

Our kids will be 3 and 6 so downtime and resort would be important but would pofq be as good (if we can hold off and it becomes available)

Want to keep so dont want to change in between if I can help it.

So in a nutshell are these resorts really worth the extra

Its the million dollar (or 2.5k) question and is all down to personal taste, personal opinion and the value you put on the additional perks/ features at these hotels.

WL so so close to MK, but not on monorail loop. Lovely resort.
Beach club so so close to Epcot, Hollywood studios, the boardwalk and skyliner station.
Both deluxe rooms.
Balcony which you wont get at POFQ.

It should give you a rough feel to each resort.
