    Hi! Love you guys! In Disney end of aug for split stay with my 3 yo son and husband. Staying at contemporary atrium club for 5 nights but then switching to Boardwalk inn, still unsure. Is stormalong good for him? He loved AK. Should we go back there?

    Hi Samantha!

    You will love both of these Walt Disney World Resort hotels!  Staying in the tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is pure nostalgia to me.  My kids get so excited when we stay there, especially to see the monorail pass through from just outside our room.  

    Disney's Boardwalk Inn is quickly rising to the top of my favorites list.  The location is fantastic, being walking distance or a ferry boat ride away from Epcot and Hollywood Studios and also the fun entertainment when the sun goes down along the Boardwalk.  Rent a surrey bike and take a loop around the Epcot Resort Area.

    Stormalong Bay is for Guests staying at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club, so you wouldn't be able to access it as a Guest of the Boardwalk Inn, but there is a fantastic pool at your resort.  The Luna Park Pool offers a really fun slide themed to the iconic wooden roller coaster.  There is also a kiddie splash pool and some fun spraying elephants.  

    The Boardwalk Inn also offers Movies Under the Stars and a nightly campfire with complimentary marshmallows to roast. 

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is another favorite of mine.  Walking into the lobby give me a feeling of joy.  It's so beautiful!  As you know, the pool is fantastic with the zero entry point and smaller slide as well as the amazing animal viewing.  

    If you're still unsure of your pick, take a look at some videos on YouTube of the Boardwalk Inn.  You'll find some very in depth video tours and review.

    Have a magical day!
