    Should we stay at Beach Club Resort or Animal Kingdom? My boyfriend and his two boys (8 and 7) will be going for 7 days in September 2011.

    Hi Charlene! The two resorts you are considering are Disney Deluxe Resorts offering the amenities and conveniences one would expect from such accommodations. The primary differences among them are theming and location. Arrayed around Crescent Lake, Disney's Beach Club Resort is located between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. This resort has an elaborate swimming complex considered by many as the absolute best in all of Walt Disney World Resort. Disney's Beach Club Resort is whimsically embellished with beach scenes. Should you choose to stay at Disney's Beach Club Resort, be sure to stop by Beaches and Cream Soda Shop and order the Kitchen Sink Sundae. Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is an extraordinarily themed resort located near Disney's Animal Kingdom. This resort replicates the grand safari lodges of Africa and overlooks an open game reserve. All rooms have balconies though views vary. Last summer my family stayed in a Deluxe Savannah View Room on the fifth-floor of the main Lodge. We absolutely loved watching exotic animals from our balcony and many of the resort's viewing areas. This resort is a family favorite of ours. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance. Regardless of which resort your choose, your family will surely enjoy an amazingly memorable stay at the Walt Disney World Resort!

People describe my love for Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Cruise Line as intoxicating and contagious! My family fell in love with the Disney Magic aboard our first Disney cruise with Captain Mickey in 2006. I personally love to spread pixie dust, as I truly enjoy sharing my Disney experience with everyone! Learn More About Ritzy
