    I am looking for a hotel with lots of character that a younger child can enjoy with enough space for the grandparents to relax in the room with us. The value inns have fun themes, but the rooms seem really small. Any ideas?

    Hi Stephanie,

    If you are looking for extra space, and wonderfully-themed accommodations, I suggest you consider staying at one of the Disney Vacation Club (DVC) properties.  You don't need to be a DVC owner to stay at the properties, and you can rent a one or two bedroom villa that can accommodate your entire party.  Each property has its own unique charm and appeal and they are located throughout Disney World.  The Boardwalk and Beach Club Villas, for example, are located near both Epcot and Hollywood Studios (you can actually walk from these properties to either park).  Both are on the Boardwalk, which offers amazing entertainment and dining options.  The Villas at Wilderness Lodge are located near the Magic Kingdom, and are themed after some of the most beautiful National Parks.  (There's even a mini old-faithful).  Old Key West and Saratoga Springs are in the Downtown Disney area, and Animal Kingdom Villas is near (can you guess?) Animal Kingdom.  All of the Villas are very luxurious, and the one and two-bedrooms offer jacuzzi-style tubs, private balconies or patios and full kitchens.  We are DVC owners, and our kids love the themed pools and huge villas.  They use the tubs as their own personal indoor swimming pools!  Click  HERE for an overview of all of the DVC properties.

    Have a wonderful trip!
