    My husband and I will be traveling to WDW with our 6 year old son, our 16 y/d son and his 16 y/o friend. I'm debating between the 1 bedroom villa at bay hill tower or the 1 bedroom villa at animal kingdom, jambo. Which would be better for all?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Wendy!

    You are choosing two beautiful hotels, Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House, and I'm not sure you can go wrong. Both of these hotels are amazing resorts! My favorite things about Bay Lake Tower are its beautiful contemporary design and its convenient location. Since it is just a short walk to Magic Kingdom and a monorail ride away from Epcot and several other Walt Disney World Resort hotels, you will really be able to enjoy your time at the theme parks and minimize your transportation times. The unique theming and atmosphere at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House is so much fun, particularly for your younger son. My husband and I stayed here last Spring and we absolutely loved watching the animals right from our room! Your family can even enjoy the campfire at night and look for animals with night vision goggles!

    So if your family plans on spending a good amount of time at your hotel, I think Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Jambo House would be a great choice to give your family lots of fun things to explore. If you are planning on spending most of your time in the theme parks, then Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is a great choice as you will love the excellent transportation!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
