    my question was that my mom and I do not know which disney hotel to stay at. we are considering around value to deluxe resorts. to help your answer i am a active teen, and want to have fun at the resort as well. thx 4 your time.

    Hi Chowder!

    In my opinion, the best Disney Value Resort is Pop Century.  It has the best food court on property and the best bus service.  It only has one bus stop area and it doesn't share buses with any other resorts; however, that might change when the new Disney's Art of Animation Resort opens, because the two are located very close to each other.  Most teenagers enjoy the theming, but the pool is basically a pool without a water slide or anything.

    The best Disney Moderate Resort is Port Orleans Riverside.  It has a great pool, with a relatively long water slide.  My two boys (ages 12 and 7) love the resort.  There are also bicycles and boats for renting as well as a horse drawn carriage ride.  The resort also offers boat service to Downtown Disney, which is fun and relaxing, especially at night.

    All of the Disney Deluxe Resorts are great places to stay!  My personal favorite is Disney's Wilderness Lodge, followed closely by Disney's Beach Club and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.  If you think you will be spending a lot of time in the Epcot and Hollywood Studios, then definitely go with the Beach Club.  It's in a great location and it has the best pool at Walt Disney World. 

    Good luck with your decision and write back with more questions!
