    Hello.My husband and I are trying to plan a 4 day disney vacation for our teenagers next year around the 4th of July. when we travel, their ages will be 18(son), 17(son), and 13 (daughter).Can anyone give us any kind of suggestions on good resorts to stay


    Choosing a Walt Disney World resort is one of the hardest parts of planning a vacation! It is so hard to settle on just one!

    In the value resort category, my recommendation is Pop Century. All of the Disney resorts are great, but we enjoy Pop Century's theme and layout. It also does not share buses with other value resorts as the All Star resorts sometimes do.  The pools at Pop Century are fun too.The main pool is even shaped like a flower!

    If you're thinking of a moderate resort, my favorite resort in this category is Port Orleans French Quarter. Our family really prefers the smaller size of this resort. After a long park day, its nice to know that everything you need is just a short walk away at your resort. One great addition to this resort is the queen-size beds that are now at the resort. Plus, don't forget to sample some of the beignets at Port Orleans French Quarter!

    And, last, the Wilderness Lodge is my favorite of all of the Disney Resorts. The Pacific Northwest theme, complete with totem poles and multi-story fireplace is magnificent. It feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of the parks. Its location is top-notch too - it is just a short boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom. The boat right might be a lifesaver during the busier holiday time too!

    Hope this helps!
