    We’re thinking between a preferred view room at Ya the Club vs standard at Wilderness Lodge. Which one would you suggest? How important is it to stay at a Disney Hotel?

    Hi there, Afeefa! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  

    Three chEARs for narrowing your Walt Disney World Resort hotel choice to two incredible Resort hotels! You can’t go wrong with either; it’s all about preferences and I can’t wait to discuss your choices with you! Growing up, my family and I stayed off property, and I didn’t know what staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel would be like. I can tell you from experience, it’s so magical! The benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel are incredible! You get early access to making FastPass+ selections, Extra Magic Hours, complimentary MagicBands, and much more! Best of all, you are truly immersed in the magic. Nowadays, my family and I find it hard to stay anywhere other than at Walt Disney World Resort hotels!

    I’ve had the pleasure of staying at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort with a preferred view, and it was phenomenal. From our room, we could see the stunning views of Disney’s Boardwalk and we loved sipping coffee on our balcony and admiring it every morning. My favorite Park is EPCOT, and Disney’s Yacht Club Resort is just a walk away from the Park! You can also use the Walt Disney World Water Transportation to EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios! We ate two delicious meals at Ale & Compass Restaurant and both times I left promising myself I’d be back soon. My favorite part about Disney’s Yacht Club Resort? It was swimming at Stormalong Bay, with a sand-bottomed pool, lazy river, and its impressive waterslide! I absolutely loved staying at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and I dream about coming back all the time!

    If Magic Kingdom Theme Park is your favorite, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Resort is a great place to stay! It has such an impressive lobby, with a rustic feel that is warm and inviting. My kiddos loved running around and spotting all the totem poles as I lounged on a rocking chair and watching them explore. We enjoyed a meal at Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White and absolutely loved the interaction with characters! Although characters are subject to change, while we were there, we enjoyed meeting Grumpy; he made us laugh until we were in the happiest tears! Walt Disney World Resort Water Transportation is available to take you from the Resort hotel to Magic Kingdom Theme Park! There are jogging trails, and a personal favorite, Campfire Activities for the family to enjoy! 

    Afeefa, whichever Resort hotel you choose, it’s truly a winning situation!

    I hope you have the most enchanting trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Afeefa!
