    We are planning a trip to Disney World for April 2010. Our two boys-, will be 16 and 11 at the time of our trip. We will stay at a Walt Disney World Resort but want to stay at the best one for their age group--price is not an issue. Any recommendations?

    Hello Gregory!  Nice to hear from another fellow Connecticut resident!  Wow- if price is not an issue, you have many choices.  I think it would come down to what type of amenities and theming your boys would enjoy.  When I first read your question, three resorts popped into mind. 

    The first is the Beach Club.  If your boys like water parks, there is no better pool area on site.  In addition, the location is fabulous.  It's located on the Boardwalk and a short walking distance to many dining places they may enjoy, including the ESPN Club.  You are also a short distance from two theme parks - Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

    The next resort I thought of was the Contemporary.  It's conveniently located on the monorail loop is the only resort where the monorail actually stops inside the resort.  It's conveniently located to the Magic Kingdom and the Epcot monorail is one stop away.

    Of course when I think about the Contemporary, I also tend to think about the Polynesian which is also located on the monorail loop.  What your boys may love about this resort is the volcano pool where the water slide is actually inside a volcano!

    You may want to take some time and look through the links I posted above.  And of course you aren't limited to those resorts...there are many others you can research in the resort section of 

    I hope this helps...if you need further help narrowing it down, just let us know!  Diane  :)
