    We will be staying at POP on our trip in April but I would love to visit some of the other resorts. I will be making ADRs for Boma and Ohana so we will definitely see AKL and the Polynesian. Which other resorts should be on our must see list?

    Hi Julie,

    Love this question as one of my favorite things to do is resort hop. I love checking out all the different resorts and their themes, shops and restaraunts. Animal Kingdom Lodge and Polynesian are two great choices. Some of the other ones that immediately come to mind are:
    •  The Grand Floridian. The breathtaking Victorian resort features a grand lobby inviting you to sit and enjoy the piano music. The resort features a number of Disney's most popular restaraunts and is located on Seven Seas Lagoon.
    • Wilderness Lodge is tucked back into the wooded area on Bay Lake. The resort is feels like you have been swept away to a rustic log cabin from the minute you step into the towering lobby. Take some time to sit and enjoy the stone fireplace and the brook that runs from inside the resort, all the way out to the pool and the nearby geyser.
    • Boardwalk Resort located back behind the World Showcase exit from Epcot. This entire Epcot resort area is home to a number of beautiful resorts (easily our family's favorite area to stay in), all surrounding Crescent Lake. These resorts offer the convenient access to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios either by boat or a walking path. This entire resort area offers numerous things to see and do and is a great place to spend an evening or two. The Boardwalk is designed around the excitment of the Atlantic City boardwalk. There are wicker chairs all along the balcony to sit and enjoy the sights, and a stroll will take you to three clubs, three restaraunts, a bakery,  sweet shop, general store, gift shop, merchandise carts and arcade. In the evenings you can find free strolling entertainers like magicians and jugglers. If you find time, be sure to walk over to the adjacent Beach Club for a look at the Stormalong Bay pool area and an ice cream treat at Beaches and Cream.

    Hope you enjoy your "resort tour" and have an amazing trip!
