    Everything has started looking the same. My family and I would like to visit during Thanksgiving week; where is the best place to stay with a teen and a preteen?

    Hi Carletta,

    I also have a teen and preteen and they have loved every single Walt Disney World hotel that we've stayed in so I think whichever you choose your children will like it. As you're only a month away from Thanksgiving, which is an incredibly popular time to visit WDW, I suggest you check which resorts have availability using the online booking form on as you may not have many resorts to choose from. You can also see lots of information on each resort, including photos, on the website too.

    If there are several available a few things to consider are the higher the category of resort means you generally get more amenities, they obviously do cost more though. For example room and bed sizes normally increase and value resorts don't have sit down restaurants or slides in the pools. Location may also be a factor in your decision, if you can afford it I would recommend one of the Boardwalk Resorts such as the Beach Club as it has easy access to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios which will probably be your childrens favourite parks.
    I hope you find some availability and have a great trip,
