    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Erica!

    First and foremost, congratulations on 10 magical “ears”! My husband and I recently traveled to Walt Disney World Resort with our children to celebrate our 10 yEAR anniversary! Part of our stay was at Disney’s Beach Club Resort. We are definitely big Epcot fans and being able to walk there was a huge highlight of our trip on our date night when we sent the kids to the Sandcastle Club! The boat transportation to Disney’s Hollywood Studios is also quite nice, but it can be faster to walk. You won’t find any pool area quite like Stormalong Bay at this Disney Resort hotel, it is a great place to relax, grab a bite to eat and catch some rays! With the entertainment options of Disney’s Boardwalk just a few steps away, you really can’t go wrong! We loved our stay here!

    That being said, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside holds a special place in my heart because it was the first Disney Resort hotel we stayed at 10 yEARS ago, on our honeymoon! I really do love the laid-back atmosphere and beautiful grounds. There are also some great recreation activities such as horse-drawn carriage rides, a fishing hole, and a marina. 

    If you are looking to splurge on a Deluxe Disney Resort hotel, then you can’t beat the placement of Disney’s Beach Club Resort! However, if you would like to stay at a beautiful Disney Moderate Resort hotel, either Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside or French Quarter are just as beautiful.

    I hope I have given you some insight! Happy planning and please come and visit us again soon,
