    Planning our second trip to Disney for spring 2011. Our kids will be 5 & 7. What's better - Beach Club Villas or Boardwalk? Love the look of Boardwalk lobby and activities. But Stormalong Bay looks fun too-are my kids too little to enjoy it?

    My vote would be for the Beach Club Villas, Kim.  At five and seven, I don't think your children are too young to enjoy Stormalong Bay.  A few years ago we stayed there when my kids were 2, 8, 10, and 13 and I can tell you firsthand that each and every one of them had fun splashing and swimming in the pool.  My husband and I stayed in the shallow end where my two youngest enjoyed playing with water toys and chasing after the ducks who saw fit to swim right alongside us.  The sandy bottom provided hours of entertainment as my kids attempted to build sandcastles and pour sandy water from one container to the next.  Honestly, we spent two full days playing in the pool.

    The Boardwalk Inn is a lovely choice, too, but the pool isn't nearly as impressive as Stormalong Bay.  If you do decide to stay at the Beach Club you could always walk over the the Boardwalk to enjoy nighttime entertainment or dine in one of the many restaurants there.  Good luck with your decision!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
