    Planning first visit to WDW: Me (56yo), Sis(54), DD(18) & BF (20),DD12 w/BFF (12). Where to stay that affords privacy for old sisters, couple and yet FUN pool & ameneties, w/proximity to Epcot. Elegant, yet fun for youngersters. Lots to think about

    Hi Nancy!  Before I even read that you wanted to be in close proximity to EPCOT I had immediately thought of the Yacht or Beach Club resorts!  Both are beautiful locations with the Beach Club having a slightly more casual family feel to it with a busier lobby.  The Yacht Club is just a few minutes further away but has an elegant but comfortable atmosphere.  There is also a wonderful quiet pool at the far end of the resort that is not highly used and is like a hidden gem!

    The main pool is the largest pool on property and called Stormalong Bay.  It is considered by many to be the best pool at any of the resorts and includes many different areas and a huge slide for the kids. The sandy bottom is a big hit for all ages and there are pool games and activities going on through-out the day if you have interest in that kind of activity.

    You can compare the resort amenities by clicking HERE.  They are wonderfully located just minutes from the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT making these resorts especially convenient.  Hollywood Studios is either a mile walk along the pathway or a 15 minutes water taxi ride making this second park also very close!
