    Hi Amanda,

    Thanks so much for writing.  Walt Disney World has so many incredible resorts, and all are a wonderful spot to call "home" while on vacation.  You don't mention whether what category of lodging you are interested in from a budget perspective, so it's a bit tough to narrow down your choices.  Feel free to write back with more specific details, and I'd be glad to provide more information.  That being said, here are my "top" picks in each category.  In the Value Category, I am in awe of the Nemo Family Suites and standard rooms at the brand new Art of Animation Resort.  I had an opportunity to tour them along with some Moms Panel Pals last weekend and was amazed.  In the moderate category, I love the Pirate-themed rooms at Caribbean Beach Resort and the Royal Rooms at Port Orleans.  I'm also a HUGE fan of the cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort if you are looking for a lot of privacy and very spacious accommodations (with a full kitchen and living room area).  In the deluxe category, I love the Beach Club in the Epcot Resort Area.  The pool, Stormalong Bay, is my absolute favorite on property, and the resort has an incredible location, within walking distance of both Epcot and Hollywood Studios.  Wherever you decide to stay, have a wonderful, magical trip!
