    With the answer of Erin in the back of my mind that 4 hotels in 2 weeks is too much, I changed it to 3, 5 nights YC, 4 nights AKL and 6 nights WLD, is this a good idea for 2 adults? (Yacht for walking to parks, AKL for the animals and WLD for the beauty)

    OK, I just have to say how bizarrely cool/weird it is that my little opinion has impacted someone in the Netherlands (I had to Google where you are).

    We Moms Panelists were total strangers six months ago and now we email each other daily about Disney ideas/tips and now also about our lives and our homes. On many Disney topics (need for car rental, certain restaurants) we have drastically different opinions. That's why it's good there are 12 of us :-) But we all feel Walt Disney World is a magical place that can help families of every size and configuration relax, have fun, connect and reconnect in a miraculously clean, safe, warm and friendly environment. I know that my family wouldn't be who we are without Disney World. We are a better version of ourselves when we are on a Disney vacation.

    Each and every one of us on the Panel feels privileged to be able to help other people have the best possible experience enjoying time with their own families. So, thank you for your trust and attention. We are lucky indeed to be here on the Panel.

    As far as your hotel situation, I think your plan is pretty great! You're going to be getting a real taste of the deluxe life at WDW. I love your rationale about why you chose each resort. It all makes perfect sense to me. The only possible thing missing would be a hotel on the monorail line. (If you were here, I bet you'd tell me that's what you canceled, right?) But you can get a good sense of this by scheduling some shopping time at the GF or a lovely dinner at the California Grill at the Contemporary.

    Since you have such wonderful accommodations planned, make sure you take advantage of them. Walk from the Yacht Club to the Studios, view the animals at the AKL, bike from the WL to Fort Wilderness (the last time we did this we saw a family of live deer grazing), rent a boat at the WL and explore the shores of Bay Lake.

    I'm sure you will have a truly memorable and magical holiday. And again, thank you for listening.
