    What are the best options at WDW resorts to get a private balcony/patio? We are a fam of 4, kids are 4 and 3. Going 1st week of Dec, 2012. We stayed at Pop Century before, it was great, but we are willing to spend more $ for balcony/patio.

    Hi Charlotte!

    Early December is a wonderful time to visit Walt Disney World. The holiday decor will be up and special holiday events will have begun around the parks & resorts... Pure Magic!

    A private balcony or patio is certainly a lovely perk to enjoy. With the ages of your little ones, perhaps you're dreaming of quiet relaxation in the evenings when the munchkins have tuckered out for the day? Beginning at the Deluxe Resort level, there are many choices that include a private balcony or patio.

    At the more affordable end of the Deluxe Resorts' pricing, Disney's Wilderness Lodge & Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge offer serene, peaceful surroundings. You may also consider the 'Savannah View' room type at Animal Kingdom Lodge and enjoy watching giraffes stroll past. Both of these resorts also have a 'Bunk Bed Room' option which is a fun additional perk for the little ones!

    When it comes to the best patio, a few of my favorite Deluxe resorts come to mind. For ground floor rooms with a patio, you cannot beat the feel of Disney's Polynesian Resort or the Garden Wing of the Contemporary Resort. You also have the luxury of the monorail whizzing right past your resort's main lobby at either of these locations. If the kids are water babies, consider Disney's Beach Club Resort. Here you're able to walk in to Epcot, take a short boat ride to Hollywood Studios and enjoy your own water park on site.

    Take a look at the amenities and pricing of these fantastic resorts via the links provided above. I hope one of them is just what you're dreaming of to make your next Walt Disney World vacation everything you're dreaming of!

    Please feel free to contact me again if you'd like any further assistance in choosing the perfect Deluxe resort for your family. Wishing you a Magical vacation Charlotte!
