    Hi Jodie! Thanks for answering my other question! My family is having trouble deciding on a hotel. What are your thoughts and opinions about the Contemporary, GF, and Beach Club. Thanks so much!

    Welcome back Marlee! Thanks for the question! I think you have narrowed your choice down to three great Disney Deluxe Resorts! Honestly, Disney's Beach Club Resort is my favorite Resort on property! Because you are visiting WDW during the summer, this would be my top pick for you due to the amazing Stormalong Bay. Stormalong Bay is a sand bottomed pool that offers three acres of waterpark fun and features the tallest slide on property, "Shipwreck." The Beach Club Resort offers great theming, close proximity to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios with accessibility via walking or the Friendship Ferry (water taxi), and great dining options. My children love roasting marshmallows by the evening campfire, watching "Movies Under the Stars," and visiting Disney's Boardwalk, which is a short walk from the Beach Club.Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are both on the monorail line for easy traveling to the Magic Kingdom, Epcot and the other monorail resorts.The Contemporary Resort is the only Resort on property that you can walk to the Magic Kingdom from and that the monorail passes right through the main concourse! The Contemporary Resort is situated on the beautiful Seven Seas Lagoon and offers modern theming and an excitement that is always in the air at this iconic Disney Resort! The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, which offers Victorian-style theming, is distinguished as the flagship hotel of the Walt Disney World Resort.You can expect world-class dining, beautiful accommodations and turn-down service at this location. I would base your decision on your vacation plans. If you plan to spend the majority of your time at Magic Kingdom, then I would suggest one of the Magic Kingdom Resorts.If you are planning to spend more time at Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios and consider the pool an important factor, then I would recommend the Beach Club Resort. Please let me know if you have any other questions, Marlee!  
    Happy Planning,
