    My family has the option to stay at the Comtemporary in the tower section with a theme park view. Or the Beach Club at the club level in a std. gdn view. We are torn on which one would be the best choice for my family of four. My kids are 14yr and 11yr.

    Hi there, Lesa!

    It sounds like you have some great options for your upcoming stay at the Walt Disney World Resort.  In my opinion, you simply can't go wrong with either resort.  First off, ask yourselves which location is preferable for your trip.  Disney's Contemporary Resort is located in the Magic Kingdom Area with monorail access to Epcot Theme Park, Magic Kingdom, and the Transportation and Ticket Center.  In addition, you are also able to walk to the Magic Kingdom, if you so choose.  For the other theme parks, you would utilize Disney bus transportation.  If you love a room with a view, that Theme Park View room may be the right choice for you.  On the other hand, any Club Level stay is extra special.  Concierge Level guests are afforded use of an exclusive lounge with refreshments during their stay.  If you don't mind a standard view room, these other trade-offs might appeal to you.  Stormalong Bay pool area is like having a miniature water park for guests of Disney's Beach Club Resort.  Additionally, you can walk or take a boat to Epcot Theme Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  I suggest you ask which resort features appeal most to your family.  Both are fabulous resorts with equally great features.  Feel free to write back to me if you should have any other questions.  I am happy to help.  

    I wish you a truly magical vacation!
