    Hello Margaret We also have all boys in our family. Can you tell me what Disney World hotel that your boys like the most?

    Hiya Elaine,

    Welcome to planDisney. I love hearing from fellow boy households. You will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort at the most magical time of the year. From the trees to the lights to the snow on Main Street U.S.A, even the Grinch shares in the holiday cheer. If you have not already, be sure to get your tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. This special ticket event occurs at Magic Kingdom on select evenings. Party-goers not only get extra hours to enjoy the attractions, special holiday entertainment, delicious holiday treats & interactions with Disney characters in their winter best. 

    We have been very fortunate over the years to stay at most Walt Disney World Resorts. The great thing is you cannot go wrong with any Walt Disney World hotel as they all offer the same perks including the ability to charge to your resort room from the theme parks and select Disney Springs shops, use of the Resort Transportation system and Early Theme Park Entry to name a few. 

    Even though there is something great about each resort, our favorite is Disney's Beach Club Resort. Located on Crescent Lake, my boys will quickly tell you that the best resort pool can be found here at Stormalong Bay. They love the climbing the mast of the shipwreck and jetting down the giant water slide and I love the relaxing lazy river and whirlpool spas. There is a large sandy area perfect for toddler play and sand castle building & plenty of lounge chairs. Lafferty Place Arcade is a few steps away for high score challenges and the scrumptious Beaches & Cream Soda Shop is nearby for afternoon sundae cravings.

    The resort shares Crescent Lake with a number of resorts including its sister resort, Disney's Yacht Club and Disney's Boardwalk. It is a short walk to EPCOT and while a little farther, there is a walking path to Disney's Hollywood Studios. However, if you want to save your steps for the theme parks, you can catch a boat to both Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. The resort is also a small walk or a short boat ride to Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort which is across from Fantasia Gardens & Fairways Miniature Golf. We often enjoy Stormalong Bay and then walk over for a round of miniature golf in the afternoon. On select evenings you can enjoy movies on the beach and can catch a portion of EPCOT Harmonious from select spots along the lake. 

    I am confident you all will love Disney's Beach Club Resort as much as we do. I hope you will stop back and see me if you have any further planning questions. 

    Hope to see ya real soon!
