    HI: We will be coming with my husband, 11 year old son, daughter and her two kids (5 and 3). Do you recommend a 2 bedroom villa or 2 Boardwalk Villa Studios? We love to swim and spend time at resort?

    Hi, Nancy!

    It sounds like you've got a great family vacation in the making! I just love visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with multiple generations of the family because there is something magical for everyone!

    While I think having a separate deluxe studio for each family for privacy is great, I'm going to recommend a two-bedroom villa for you, especially since you mentioned loving to spend time in your Resort. You can request adjoining studios, but it's never a guarantee. My family absolutely loves having the full kitchen and living room so we can all gather there. We also like to cook at least one meal a day in our villa, so we take turns cooking and cleaning up and the rest of the family can hang out in the living room, but we're all still together! The other fantastic benefit of the two-bedroom villa is that you'll have the convenience of a washer and dryer right there in your room! This will help you pack less and with three kiddos, you'll have more room to bring home souvenirs in those suitcases! I love coming home with suitcases full of clean clothes instead of everything dirty.

    I stayed at the Boardwalk Inn a couple months ago and had the most amazing time! The pool at the Boardwalk is just fantastic! It reminds me of Coney Island in New York where I lived for a couple years when I was a kid. I think your family will really enjoy the slide! There is also all kinds of entertainment that happens sporadically around the Boardwalk area and it's really fun to just hang out and see what surprises come about!

    I hope this helps you make your decision and I encourage you to come back with any other questions you think of!

    Wishing you Pixie Dusted vacation planning!
