    We have a large family (11) are deciding between club level suites at the Grand Floridian or a 3-bedroom grand villa at the GF. Would the grand villa have access to club level services?

    Hi Mary! Oh my goodness. Your vacation sounds practically perfect in every way!

    This is such a hard decision. The great news is that both choices are wonderful!

    If Club Level Access is your top priority, suites at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will be a perfect fit for you as you will not have Club Level Access in the 3-Bedroom Grand Villa. If you are trying to stay together as a family, the 3-Bedroom Grand Villa is perfect as it sleeps up to 12 Guests.

    As Disney Vacation Club Members since 1997, I am partial to the Villas but we have stayed Club Level at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa several times and the experience has always been awe-inspiring.

    When deciding, it might help to think about how much you might use the amenities in the Grand Villa. Will the washer and dryer or full kitchen be used during your vacation or are the Club Level Amenities a better fit for your family? So many wonderful choices!

    This is such a hard decision. I think I would write both options on strips of paper, place the strips in a Mickey Ear hat and draw the winner. 

    I'm so excited for you as I know whatever decision you make, you are going to have a magical vacation. My family traveled as a large group a few years ago and the trip was one of my most memorable and magical vacations.

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you need any other information as you make your decision.

    Have a magical day!
