    I am planning a girls weekend and was wondering which deluxe resort you would recommend. We are planning on staying 4 days and want to be close to Epcot and Downtown Disney. Thanks!

    Hi, Lisa!

    A "Girls Weekend" at Walt Disney World is so much fun!  It is the perfect place with dining, shopping, and of course the super fun theme parks.

    I suggest you stay at the Beach Club.  This Deluxe Resort is just a 5  minute walk to Epcot.  At the Beach Club, you will have access to Stormalong Bay, the most amazing swimming pool.  Rest under a palm tree, go for a swim, or relax in the hot tub. 

    The Yacht and Beach Club Resorts have some nice lounges for an evening drink.  When my BFF's and I are in WDW for the weekend, it is tradition to stop by Martha's Vineyard, a small and quiet lounge where we can enjoy each other's company and get a beverage.  To kick it up, walk around the Boardwalk to JellyRolls for  an adult-only club with dueling pianos, a really fun way to spend the night!

    To get to Downtown Disney, simply hop on a bus at your resort.  Buses run to and from Downtown Disney late into the night if you want to head there for dinner, a movie, or just dessert!

    No Girls Weekend is complete without shopping.  When at Downtown Disney, stop by TrenD for some great fashions and my favorite:  Purses!   They have a nice selection of Disney Dooney & Bourke bags and Harveys for Disney Couture Collection Seatbelt bags. 

    If you need some tips for planning your Girls Weekend (dining, itinerary, etc.) let me know!  I have planned a few of these weekends with my gals, and we always have such a blast.  Enjoy!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
