    Hi, Doug. I am planning a vacation for May 2014. I have narrowed my resort choices to the three Epcot resorts. I have a DS almost 15 at time of trip and DD 11 at time of trip and a husband who leaves it up to me. Which would you recommend?


    The good news is that any of the three are going to be a great choice. They are all fun settings, and the location is ideal for a family like yours with teens (and tweens) that will want to do more with their afternoons and evenings than younger kids.

    While I love the BoardWalk Inn, I would send you across the lake to either the Beach or Yacht Club. The layout of the BoardWalk can make for long walks from your room to the lobby and BoardWalk area. Also, the pool at the Yacht/Beach has so many features that your kids are sure to find it more fun, and with more to do.

    Of the two, I would lean towards the Beach Club, if only for the slightly closer proximity to Epcot and the more relaxed decor. They Yacht Club is a personal favorite, especially when traveling solo or with an adult-only party, but the Beach Club is a bit more approachable to kids. But in a pinch, either would do. So see if there are any slight deals on the Yacht over the Beach that might save you a few dollars.

    By the way, I LOVE this question! I am glad to chat about it more, if you want!

    Have a magical vacation!
