    Hi Ladies! We just found out that we will have a short block of time in August and we were contemplating a trip to WDW with our 5 kids. I have never been and have no idea where to begin. Any suggestions? Where is the best place for a lg. fam to stay?

    Hello, Christina,

    Walt Disney World offers a variety of resorts that vary to reflect different budgets and guests' needs:

    Value Resorts:  Disney fun and budget friendly  
    Moderate Resorts:  More amenities, but the rooms can still be budget-friendly
    Deluxe Resorts:  Lots of luxury and suites can accommodate larger families
    Deluxe Villas:  While these can be more costly, there are 2 bedroom units that sleep up to 9 guests. The rooms are much like apartments with all the amenities.

    Unless you'd like to book a suite or a Deluxe Villa room, you will probably need to book two connecting rooms. I'd begin by looking at the different resorts to see which rates and styles would best fit your family's needs.  Once you narrow your choices, we'd be happy to help with more questions about the resorts and share the pros and cons of them if you send more questions our way. 

    You may also want to look at the Special Offers since there is one for stays in the latter part of August.

    Thank you for the question and please let us help again as you begin to narrow down your choices.  We all know how overwhelming selecting a resort can be.
