    My husband and I are planing our first trip to Disney World for 2012- our 40th anniversary and his retirement- we like the wild/thrill rides and are especially interested in Epcot - which resort hotel would you recommend - at moderate price?


    If you and your husband enjoy thrill rides, my guess is that you'll also like Disney Hollywood Studios' Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, too, in addition to Epcot.

    With this in mind, I'd recommend that you consider the Swan or Dolphin hotels that are run by Sheraton and Westin. Although they are not considered Disney resort hotels and a room there doesn't qualify you for the dining plan or resort package delivery, their location between Hollywood Studios and the back gate to Epcot make them very attractive, along with their price.

    These hotels offer a deluxe feel, the location of a deluxe and the proximity to all of the dining of a deluxe but at a fraction of the price of a deluxe. PLUS: you have the entertainment of the Boardwalk that provides the perfect backdrop for your anniversary. (And did I mention that you might want to check out a couples massage at their Mandara Spa?) So, before you consider one of the Disney Moderate hotels that only provide bus transportation to the parks and limited dining choices, I'd check into the Swan & Dolphin.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
