We are coming to WDW for the first time in mid October with our 6 yr old. Would you recommend the Boardwalk or the Beach Club to stay? Any suggestions on standard room locations? And are the pools heated at the resorts?

When bringing backpacks into the park, can we carry this with us on the rides and if not where do we leave them without renting a locker?
