    Hello, We are planning a trip in early May 2013. I am having a hard time trying to figure out what hotel to stay at. We want to stay in the park. I have a 8yr old and 18yr old both boys. Trying to find a place they will both enjoy.

    Hi Beth,

    My twelve-year-old son has always loved Disney's Wilderness Lodge.   It is incredibly close to the Magic Kingdom and just happens to be one of the most affordable deluxe resorts in all of Walt Disney World.  It has beautiful theming.  You will think you have been transported to one of the national parks of the great American northwest.  This would be the resort that I would recommend for any family traveling with boys.  Of course, girls like it too.  It just happens to be my favorite resort in all the world!  If you'd like to read more about it, just go to and search "hidden gem Wilderness Lodge."  My review of this magical resort will appear at the top of the resulting page.

    Best of luck choosing a Disney resort!  If you need any more information or advice, don't hesitate to ask.
