    We have a family of 9, 7 kids ages infant to 12. We have been told that Bay Tower Villas would be the best for us as it is on the Monorail system. What do you think?

    Welcome to the Mom's Panel, Luke! That's a great question!  As a mom of four children which includes a set of twins, I personally choose a Walt Disney World Resort that offers spacious accommodations and is centrally located to the parks.  I am a member of the Disney Vacation Club and Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is my "home resort." For me, it doesn't get any better than being able to walk to Magic Kingdom from your resort!  It is very convenient to be able to travel to Epcot and the other Magic Kingdom Resorts utilizing the monorail. I have found it to be challenging with multiple "little ones" to travel on the Disney buses exclusively. On the buses, you are required to collapse strollers which can be quite difficult when you are also holding sleeping toddlers. On the monorail, you are not required to fold your stroller. Bay Lake Tower offers exciting recreational activities, amenities, and dining options. We have always stayed in a 2 Bedroom Villa which would also accommodate your family size. We love having a full kitchen, washer/dryer set-up, and three bathrooms. As a guest staying at Bay Lake Tower, you are also allowed to take advantage of the recreational activities at Disney's Contemporary Resort. We found the Bay Cove Pool to be a very intimate, relaxed setting which allows you to easily keep watch over young children. I definitely think Bay Lake Tower would be a great choice for your family of nine!  I hope this helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions regarding Bay Lake Tower or your Walt Disney World Vacation!  Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Luke!
    Happy Planning,
