    I am planning a trip to Disney 9/13-9/19 with DH and DD 2 1/2. This will be DD 2nd trip to Disney. Stayed in BCV last time and loved it. Cant decide between BCV again or to try a new resort, possibly WL Villas. Worried about transportation. Any suggestions


    I like trying out a new resort every time I visit. So for me, the move to trying out another resort is a good one. But you cite concerns about transportation. It's true, there are certain drop offs in transportation services. You get the 'upgrade' of being able to boat to the Magic Kingdom. But you lose the ease of being able to walk to Epcot and boat to Hollywood Studios. You also lose the nearby BoardWalk as an easily accessible entertainment venue.

    Bottom Line:
    If you plan on going to the Magic Kingdom for the majority of your days (which many parents of a 2 1/2 year old might do), then try out the Wilderness Lodge. You certainly won't be disappointed, and even if you decide afterward that you preferred the Beach Club over it, you can always go there on your THIRD trip!

    But if you plan on only a day or two at the Magic Kingdom, then either stay at the Beach Club Villas, or perhaps consider trying the BoardWalk Villas for a slight change of venue, but with all the same transportation benefits (but not the great pool).

    Have a magical vacation!
