    Trying to decide where to stay for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We have narrowed our choices to The Beach Club, Wilderness Lodge or French Quarter and we can't decide. Please help-- I am losing sleep over this!

    Hey there, Karen. ChEARs on the huge milestone wedding anniversary!

    You have certainly made this a really difficult decision. I love all of these resorts, but for very different reasons. I'll tell you why I like each one, and you can see if it helps you narrow your choices.

    I'll start with Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. I could really just stop at beignets and move on. I love them. But the resort is smaller and more intimate, with the romantic feel of the New Orleans architecture. You can enjoy a walk through the cobblestone streets or enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride in the evening. The only draw back here for me is the rooms are a bit smaller than the other two resorts on your list. But, again, beignets. A girl has to have her priorities.

    Disney's Wilderness Lodge to me is like getting a bonus vacation within a vacation. The rustic, outdoorsy feel of this great lodge is like vacationing in the Pacific Northwest, right there in your Florida vacation. I love the landscaping here, and the warm, woodsy comfort. 

    You can't get much more vacation feel than at Disney's Beach Club Resort. This has the most fun pool of the three - with a 3-acre water park. The casual elegant vibe, with the bright, light decor, really feels like you are stepping into a beach resort. I also love the proximity here to night time entertainment and to Epcot.

    You can't really go wrong with any of these great resorts. Think of what you want your 25th anniversary trip to feel like, and you'll be led in the right direction.
