    I plan on visiting in Nov. with DH, 3 kids, 11, 6, & 2, my brother, sister in law, and her husband. Would it be better to stay in one place together (thinking Wilderness Lodge Villas) or get 3 separate rooms at Pop? Can't decide, thanks for the help!

    Hi, Jennifer!  I personally love the Disney Vacation Club Villas, and if given the choice, I'd always choose a villa.  I've stayed in the villas with extended family many times, and I will say that it definitely helps if everyone gets along!

    Your family could get a two bedroom villa, which would give you one bedroom with a king sized bed; a bedroom with two queen sized beds; and a sleep sofa.  That gives you plenty of storage space, but more than that, you'll have a full kitchen, which can be a big savings on snacks, drinks, and other food items; plus, you'll have a stackable washer and dryer.  With three children, I can't tell you how often that comes in handy!  When you throw into the mix the cost the airlines are charging for baggage, you can pack less with the knowledge you can wash clothes during your trip and not have to pay for extra bags.

    The villa gives you two bathrooms, one with a jacuzzi tub.  This is the only drawback I can possibly see with going with the villa.  In the Pop Century resort, with three rooms, you'll have three bathrooms.  For this number of people, that is a nice feature, but I like the villa.

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
