    We are booked at Beach Club the week after Thanksgiving. Debating if I should switch to Contemp. Garden wing for around the same price. We will be at MK 2 days, Epcot 2 days, HS and AK for 1 day. I would love advice on which resort to choose.

    Hi Abby,

    Basically, the answer to your question comes down to one factor; would you prefer to be close to the Magic Kingdom or to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios?  Because you'll be visiting Epcot for two days and Disney's Hollywood Studios for one day, I'd opt for Disney's Beach Club Resort.  I loved staying there last March.  Our room was only a five minute walk from the International Gateway entrance of Epcot so we could pop over to World Showcase quickly for dinner whenever we wanted.  It's a charming, well-themed resort with arguably the best pool (Stormalong Bay) on property.  If you want to be in the middle of the magic, this resort is an excellent choice!

    If you prefer to stay within walking distance of the Magic Kingdom instead, then Disney's Contemporary Resort is a better choice.  This resort is a Disney classic and the garden wing rooms are very spacious.

    Let us know if you need any more information to make your decision.  We'd be happy to help!

    Best wishes for a truly magical vacation,
