    My family, consisting of 3 families - 6 adults and 3 children (5,7,9) are thinking about coming to DW in Sept. We are trying to decide between WL and CR. We like the idea of being on the monorail for 2 of the parks. Which resort would you suggest?

    Hi, Tabitha!  This is a tough question, but I think as much as I love Wilderness Lodge, I really like the convenience of the monorail resorts, so my vote would be for the Contemporary Resort.  You can't beat the convenience of monorail travel between the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT (and you can walk to the Magic Kingdom in just a few short minutes from the Contemporary).

    If theming plays a part in your decision, Wilderness Lodge is such a departure from what you might expect to find in Florida!  You really feel as though you are transported to the Pacific Northwest, with the rustic lodge and the incredible landscaping.  This really is an incredible place.

    If convenience is the biggest influence, then definitely choose the Contemporary.  For a vacation in a vacation, Wilderness Lodge would be my choice.

    Wherever you chose, I hope the vacation is magical!
