    Hi Jodi,

    I think your plan to stay at the Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is an excellent plan!  Disney's Wilderness Lodge is the most affordable of the deluxe resorts in the Magic Kingdom area of Walt Disney World.  You will not believe the amount of space your party will enjoy in a 2 bedroom villa there, and it is so convenient to have a full kitchen and private laundry facilities at your disposal.  Between that villa and an additional deluxe studio, your family will feel like they are living in the lap of luxury.  Be prepared to be awestruck by this magical, rustic resort.  It is my favorite in the whole world!  I wish I could be there when you first lay your eyes on the stunning, cavernous lobby.  You are in for a real treat.

    The other advantage to staying at this resort is its proximity to the Magic Kingdom.  With children ages 3-10, you'll no doubt want to spend time in the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Wilderness Lodge (and its neighboring villas) are just a four-minute complimentary bus ride to this spectacular theme park.  Be sure to take the boat back to your resort at the end of your day.  That boat ride across Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon is pure magic!

    When you check-in, be sure to look over the schedule for kids' activities.  My personal favorites are the Disney movies on the beach and the rubber duck races at Silver Creek Springs Pool.  I'm sure there will be something each of your children will enjoy. 

    Let me know if you have any additional questions about this resort or any aspect of your upcoming vacation.  I'd be happy to help.

    Best wishes for a family vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust!
