    I am planning a trip for the summer of 2021 and would like to know what the best hotel to stay at for an 8 and 12 year old...both boys

    Hi, Sara! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, from one boy mom to another! Let's help you find the perfect place for your family to call "home" at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Life is never dull when you're raising boys, is it? My 9-year-old son seems to be in constant motion, and he never, ever met a sport he didn't like. He loves cars and boats, he could splash away in the pool all day long, and his appetite has grown almost as much as he has!

    With all that in mind, I think the perfect Resort hotel for you and your boys may be Disney's Beach Club Resort. It's in an ideal location, just steps away from Epcot and one of my little guy's favorite attractions - Test Track. Plus, a short boat ride is all it takes to get to a galaxy far, far away at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    If your boys like sports, they'll love the ESPN Club, which is a stone's throw away at Disney's BoardWalk. And of course, Disney's Beach Club Resort is home to Stormalong Bay, the most splash-tacular pool in all of Walt Disney World. Get this - the slide starts inside a giant shipwreck and travels all the way across the walkway before splashing down into the pool. I promise they'll love it!

    When it comes to feeding those growing boys, you'll find an almost endless selection at Cape May Cafe, a bountiful buffet serving breakfast and dinner. Plus, your guys can try to conquer the massive Kitchen Sink Sundae at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop - if they dare!

    There's even more family fun at Disney's Beach Club Resort, like boat rentals, volleyball, and an arcade, while the Fantasia Gardens & Fairways Miniature Golf Course is also close by. With all it has to offer, I really think you and your boys will have a blast at the beach!

    I hope this helps you plan a fun-filled vacation for your family, Sara. Please come back and see us if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
