    We will be traveling with our 3 children and my in-laws next May. We would like to stay in a villa or suite. My in-laws will get their own room. Where is the best place to stay?

    Hi Donna!

    This is a great question!

    My favorite Disney Deluxe Villa is the Villas at Wilderness Lodge followed closely by the Beach Club Villas.  Another guest favorite is the Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas in Kidani Village. 

    If you have young children, you should consider staying at the Villas at Wilderness Lodge as that will provide you easy access with the Magic Kingdom via boat service.  It also has a great theme and a wonderful family restaurant:  Whispering Canyon Cafe.

    The Beach Club is especially nice if you think you will be spending a lot of time in Epcot as it is only a 5 minute from the Beach Club to the International Gateway entrance of Epcot between the France and United Kingdom Pavilions.  It also has boat service to Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    The Animal Kingdom Lodge is a fabulous place to stay, but it has a rather remote location.  If you have a car then this is not an issue, but if you have to rely on Disney transportation just keep in mind that it will take slightly longer to get to and from your hotel.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
