    hi..headed to wdw for 3/4 nights in nov. with such great deals should we do beach club hotel, bc villas or bw villas. 2 adults and an 8 yr boy. we will be doing the full dining deluxe plan & epcot & disney studios.loved wilderness view of lake/pool

    Hi Amy!

    I really prefer the Beach Club over the Boardwalk.  Both have great locations on Crescent Lake, and you can easily walk to one from the other.  However, the Beach Club is slightly closer to Epcot and the Beach Club has a better layout than the Boardwalk (in my opinion); the Boardwalk is just too spread out and it can be a long walk to your room if you're out on the edges.  Also, the pool at the Beach Club is absolutely amazing!  Stormalong Bay is a sand bottom pool divided into three sections and has an awesome water slide that most 8 year old would love; there's also a smaller one for younger guests.  Stormalong Bay is easily the best pool at Walt Disney World; it's like a mini-water park!

    I really can't advise you between a normal room at the Beach Club and a villa.  It really depends on whether you want more room, of if you want to cook.  I've stayed in a 1 bedroom villa at the Beach Club many times and have always enjoyed it.  Sometimes my family just wants the extra room or we want the ability to cook a few meals in the room. 

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
