    Hi, our boys are 7 and 2. We never stayed in Disney resort before. I was initially thinking Pop Century as the kids might like the surroundings but knowing the doors actually open to the outside, I am in look out for another option.Any Suggestions.

    Hi Dhruv,

    I certainly understand your concern regarding hotel room doors that open to the outside.  I much prefer to stay at resorts where guest rooms open into a covered interior hallway.  Have you looked at possibly staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge or Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  These are deluxe Disney resorts but their prices are lower than the other deluxe resorts on Disney property.  You may even want to consider working with a savvy travel agent to see if he or she could find you a good deal on rooms at these beautifully themed resorts.  Another option is to look at prices for rooms at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts.  These are not owned and operated by Disney, but they are comfortable, conveniently located, and frequently run discounted room rates.

    Good luck planning your exciting Disney vacation.  Your boys are going to LOVE Walt Disney World!  Let us know if there are any other questions with which we can help you.
