    We will be having a magical gathering in November with three generations. The oldest being 70 and the youngest being 7. Can you recommend a delux resort for the vast age range?


    Without hesitation I recommend either the Beach Club or the Boardwalk for your group. I mention both resorts because they are both located in the same area, and in fact are just a short walk around the water away from one another.  If I were choosing for my family I would select the Beach Club.  The pool there (Stormalong Bay) is the most amazing on Disney property and is almost like a water park in and of itself. 

    I choose these properties because of their relaxed, 'comfortable elegance' atmosphere, and their incredibly convenient location.  Both are a short 5 minute walk to Epcot's International Gateway, and a 10-15 minute walk to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  If you prefer, you may take a boat to either of these parks also.  You also have easy access to the dining and entertainment options along the Boardwalk which are a lot of fun.  And the World Showcase restaurants in Epcot are some of the best on Disney property, so it's great to have them so close by.

    Ultimately though, I can say that I really do love something different about all of the deluxe resorts, and I'd be very happy to stay in any of them.  Each has unique themeing and charm, and they will all be filled with hidden treasures for your family to explore together.

    I hope you find one that suits your families' needs, and that you all have a great vacation together!
