I am with you. Nothing against the GF because they did a great job on the resort and I have been over to that resort many times to walk around when staying at the Polynesian including a time I asked to see a room so I don’t think I have to have slept there to have an opinion on the resort and it was just a little to formal and frilly for me.
Someone else asked about the Polynesian and Contemporary and this is what I wrote.
I love the Polynesian but the Contemporary has always been of interest to me ever since I first when through it on the monorail. I will give you my opinion as if I were considering each one but I am not an expert of the Contemporary resort so hopefully someone who has stayed there can help also.
They both have the largest standard rooms on property and in many cases they are almost 100 sq-ft larger than other deluxe resort standard rooms. They have both just gone through having their rooms redesigned completely. They are also both on the monorail. Now the Contemporary has unique access to the MK by walking. Taking the monorail is the longest trip out of any of the monorail resorts since it has the most stops before the MK. The Polynesian is two stops away from the MK and also has a boat to the MK directly. The Polynesian also has unique access by walking to the Transportation and Ticket Center that you can get on the ferry to the MK (incase you want to roll a stroller or have a wheelchair) but it also means you can walk to the TTC and get right on the monorail to Epcot giving the Polynesian the quickest access to Epcot outside of the Epcot resorts themselves. My times trip from room to park was 13 minutes. The Contemporary you would have to board the resort monorail, go to the TTC, get off and switch over to the Epcot monorail.
Both resorts have rooms with views of the MK (and you pay for that) but some say the view from the Contemporary is better being so close). I actually prefer the view from the Polynesian but that is just me. Both have great food options but that is not much of a factor to me because I find it easy to get on the monorail and go to the GF and Contemporary to eat even when staying at the Polynesian. They share a bus so all you do is cut down on one stop at the Polynesian. The Contemporary will have a lower price so that may be a factor.
I think the beach area and pool is much better at the Polynesian but maybe not a big factor in February.
Hopefully that gives you a little to think about.

With MGM being your target for the Star Wars stuff I would maybe go with the Polynesian for one small reason. Many times I enjoy taking the bus to MGM and than going from MGM to Epcot to get on the monorail home. It is a fun loop to do. Also it would sort of make sense to stay at a Boardwalk Epcot resort area but although it is closer to MGM, getting to the park is actually longer. The boat over to MGM takes almost twice the time that riding the bus from the Polynesian takes to get to MGM. While the boat is fun it became very annoying to me after a few days of not only waiting for the boat but how slow the boat goes. I guess I am just spoiled by the monorail and getting from the TTC to Epcot in 8 minutes.
Good luck with the choice and out of the selections you posted I think you will like any of them.
