Sorry, I know a variation of these comparison questions have been asked before, but I didn't find a recent one that compared these two in particular from someone familiar with both. I have two kids who will be ages 5 and 2 at the time of the trip. I currently have a week at Waterside confirmed but a week with a mildly better check-in date (just by one day) just showed up at Island Links today, and I'm debating whether it would be worthwhile to pay the fee and do an re-exchange. While I consider whether the slightly better check-in date is worth the extra fee, I'm also wondering whether one resort or the other is a better place for 3 adults and 2 kids (5 and 2) all visiting HH for the first time. Both resorts seem to have comparably nice/fun pool areas, and we plan to hang out by the pool often. And both seem to be located a comparable distance away from the nearest beach, about a 10 minute walk, right? Is one beach better than the other? Based on what I recall reading, I think folks would give the edge to Waterside for convenience to restaurants and shops, right?
