    looking for the best place to stay with my boyfriend. It will be our 5 year anniversary and he’s never been to disney!

    Hiya Amanda,

    Welcome to planDisney. I am honored to have the chance to help you plan your boyfriend's first visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Every trip to Disney World is memorable but there is something even more magical about the first time you walk through the Magic Kingdom turnstiles, cross under the tunnel, step on to Main Street U.S.A and spot Cinderella Castle. It will be the perfect way to celebrate your anniversary!

    Every great vacation starts with the perfect hotel and luckily there are plenty to pick from in the Walt Disney World Resorts Collection. Our family has been fortunate to stay at most of them over the years, and while we definitely have our favorites, we have found each resort unique and perfect in its own way. The biggest factor you need to start with is whether cost plays a role in your choice. The resorts are grouped into categories: Value, Moderate, Deluxe, Deluxe Villas and Campground. If you love nature or enjoy a great campsite or cabin, you will love Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground. Guests can choose from adorable cabins that sleep up to 6 all the way to a campsite where you can pitch a tent. If you are looking for a more economical stay, or figure you will only be using your room to sleep and get ready for theme park activities, you may want to look at a value or moderate selection. Our favorite Value Resort is Disney's Pop Century Resort (love the theme here and the option to use the Disney Skyliner) and our favorite moderate is Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. We find the resort so romantic and peaceful!

    Our favorite resort however, falls in the Deluxe category and is Disney's Beach Club Resort. Located on Crescent Lake, it is walking distance to EPCOT and a short boat ride from Disney's Hollywood Studios. Stormalong Bay is home to a collection of pools, saunas, a great water slide and lazy river. The resort shares a walking path with a number of other Disney resorts including Disney's Boardwalk Resort. We love strolling over to the boardwalk in the evenings and enjoying a host of entertainment options including Jellyrolls, a dueling piano bar for Guests 21 and over. We find this entire are lively, fun and even romantic. I think it is the perfect place to celebrate your anniversary. 

    I hope this helps you make the perfect choice for your stay. Be sure to ask for your Happy Anniversary buttons. It is a great way to share your celebration with the Cast Members and maybe even get a little pixie dust sprinkled on your trip. If you need any further planning assistance, I hope you will stop back and see me

    With pixie dust,
