    Trying to decide between YC/BC and GF for stay in July. Can you give a recommendation? We are a family of 4 - DH, DD (16) and DD(12). Thank you

    Hi Deborah!

    Oh boy, you sure have a tough decision to make deciding between two fabulous Walt Disney World Resorts! Disney's Yacht & Beach Club and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa each offer amazing perks. Let me tell you what I love about each of them.

    Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is known for its elegance and of course, location! With just a monorail ride or a ferry boat sailing away from Magic Kingdom Park, you're immersed in the magic just by staying at this beautiful Resort. You'll find two pools, which will surely be enticing after some park time in July. The Grand Floridian is home to three amazing Table-Service restaurants as well as a convenient Quick-Service restaurant and pool bar.

    Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resort is also in a much desired location being walking distance or a ferry boat ride away from Disney's Epcot International Gateway entrance or Disney's Hollywood Studios. My kids especially love the pool, Stormalong Bay, which is like a mini-water park. My son will shoot down the slide over and over again! This resort is also home to one of my favorite restaurants, Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. The grilled cheese is so delicious that I asked for the recipe from the chef to make it at home. My husband and I split one of the enormous sundaes. Another perk is being able to walk over to Disney's Boardwalk, home to evening entertainment, fantastic dining and fun activities.

    You can't go wrong with either of these resorts. Which will you choose?

    Have a magical day!
