    i'm going to disney world for 11 days we are a family of 5, 2 adults and 3 boys 14, 10, 9 and I have enough starwood points to get me 6 nights free at the Dolphin and Swan.My question is where should I stay the next 5 days i've stayed at bc and poly before

    Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    Since you have a family of five with slightly older boys, I recommend that you stay in an accommodation with a little more space.  You will likely really appreciate some extra room!  Your family could book a family suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, or at Disney's All-Star Music Resort; however, I am not sure if the themes at each of those would appeal to your boys.

    I think that a great idea for your family would be to stay at The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort.  These sleep up to six guests, with a separate bedroom which has bunk beds and a double bed.  Your boys could sleep in there, and the two adults to stay in the Murphy bed in the living room, which folds down from the wall.  My family has spent many really fun vacations at the Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort.  There are so many recreation options here - from horseback riding to biking to swimming to archery, and so much more.  We really enjoy the charcoal grill at each cabin - we have at least a couple of nights grilling out and eating on our porch each time we stay here.  We find that on our vacations at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, we spend a lot of time hanging out at the resort relaxing as a family.

    I hope that this gives you some ideas for your resort, Nancy!  Have a great time planning your vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
