    Hi, We are trying to decide between two resorts for our next stay at WDW. The Ft. Wilderness or Beach Club Resort. What would you choose and why?…………Thanks

    Hi Andrea!

    What a great question! I completely understand your dilemma as both of these resorts are beautiful and incredible places to stay. 

    Based on my family's dynamic and how much time we spend at the pool, I would probably choose Disney's Beach Club Resort. Stormalong Bay is a splashtastic, 3-acre water area my kids (and the whole family) adore. We also love being just across the way from Disney's BoardWalk and just a short walk away from the International Gateway entrance to Epcot.  If pool-time isn't as important to your family we prefer the rooms and theme at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. It is also fantastic to be only a short boat ride away from Magic Kingdom Park.

    You really can't go wrong with either of these wonderful Disney resorts. I hope I have made your choice a little easier and please let me know if there is anything else I may assist you with.

    Happy planning,
