    Hi Siobhan!

    If you plan to spend plenty of time in the Magic Kingdom (and I would considering the ages of your daughters), then I would book a one bedroom villa at either Bay Lake Tower or Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  You could be at the Magic Kingdom in less than ten minutes if you are staying at either of these resorts.  Bay Lake Tower offers some rooms with a theme park view.  These are amazing because you can watch the fireworks over Cinderella Castle from your very own balcony at night.  The music is even piped in through your television!  However, these rooms are likely to be more expensive than the villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  The Lodge happens to be my favorite resort on the planet!  It is beautifully themed after the national park service lodges of a century ago.  They have an awesome pool, wonderful restaurants, a geyser that erupts on the hour, and an awe-inspiring lobby.  This resort is not to be missed!  It is also only a four-minute bus ride from the Magic Kingdom.  Definitely check out the prices at this resort too!

    Either of these resorts would be a good option for your family.  I suggest you book a reservation at the one that is available at the best price.

    Best wishes to you as you plan your magical Disney adventure!  Let us know if you have any additional questions.
