    Planning our next visit with our 4 year old and 1 year old. Trying to decide between Wilderness Lodge, Beach or Yacht Club. Also is club level worth the extra money? Thanks!

    Hi, Georgette!  The big advantages to the Yacht and Beach Club resorts is the amazing pool area and the close proximity to EPCOT.  You can easily walk through EPCOT's International gateway and into the theme park from either the Yacht or Beach Club with only about a five minute walk, and if you plan on spending any amount of time there, it's really convenient.

    The pool area is shared between both resorts, and is the most popular at Walt Disney World.  Stormalong Bay features sand bottom pools, a great water slide, fantastic wading pool, and is just a really terrific area.  Kids love it!

    Wilderness Lodge is also a wonderful resort, but I think with kids that age, I'd probably choose the Yacht or Beach Club.

    As far as club level goes, I think it depends on how much time you want to spend at your resort.  There are light refreshments put out at the various meal times throughout the day - not enough to make a full meal, but certainly nice for a quick snack.  If you plan to be at the resort a good amount of time, you may want to consider the Club Level.
