    I am trying to decide between a deluxe or moderate resort for my 40th bday trip next year. I have stayed at value and moderate, but never a deluxe. It will be myself and my husband and three kids (ages 15,13, and 2).

    Hi, Erin! 
    Welcome! I'm excited to be answering your question; I spent part of my 40th birthday at Walt Disney World® Resort (in conjunction with a Disney Cruise Line vacation). I can't think of a better way to ring in your big day.

    If your budget allows, I recommend staying at one of our deluxe level resort hotels. We stayed at Disney's Beach Club Resort for my 40th - it's one of my favorites. Here are a few reasons I believe you will love it too. 

    •Space for a family of five: I also have three children (my oldest is 14) so having space for as all to sleep comfortably is essential. And with queen sized beds, it's not an issue for my daughters to have to share. 

    • Stormalong Bay, best pool area on property! Your little one will love playing in the sand pool while your older children enjoy the thrill of the Flying Jib Waterslide or the lazy river. Your entire family will enjoy hours of splashtastic fun. 

    • Location, location, location! Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts are located in the heart of Walt Disney World® Resort. Not only will you have access to the fun, food and free entertainment nearby at Disney's BoardWalk Resort, but Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios are within walking distance. 

    • Theming that appeals to everyone. With its casual, beachy theme, you'll feel relaxed as soon as you check-in. 

    These are just some of the reasons I suggest splurging at Disney's Beach Club Resort. I would love to hear from you again, Erin, so I may help you customize your 40th birthday celebration and give you more tips on how I celebrated my big day. I can also help you identify any Special Offers that may include discounts on that perfect room. 

    Let's make this the most magical birthday yet!
