    We are trying to narrow down our best options for accomodations. We are a family of four, 2 boys 5 and 8. We are interested in a location that has the main attractions close by, our boys are excited about the indoor water park, and bunk beds! Help!

    Hey Celia!  Thanks for visiting the Mom's Panel!  Your boys are the perfect age for experiencing all the magic of Disney!  Disney's Wilderness Lodge is a Disney Deluxe Resort themed after the Great American Northwest National Park Lodges. Disney's Wilderness Lodge is one of my favorite DIsney Resorts and has such a relaxing atmosphere, an exciting pool with water slide, Fire Rock Geyser, and easy access to Chip 'n Dale's Campfire Sing-a-long. This beautiful resort is located in the Magic Kingdom area where guests can easily travel to Magic Kingdom via the motor launch or motor cruiser (water taxis.) There are also guest rooms that offer bunk beds at this resort. Follow this link to view photos and recreational activities available at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. Disney's Beach Club Resort is my favorite Disney Resort for its New England style-theming, close proximity to Epcot and DIsney's Hollywood Studios, and Stormalong Bay, the best pool on property in my opinion. Stormalong Bay is a beachside water park that offers up three acres of aquatic fun for the whole family. Your boys will love the sand bottomed pool, lazy river, and "Shipwreck," the tallest water slide on property. My kids also love roasting marshmallows over the campfire on the beach at night followed by a Movie Under the Stars. Follow this link to view the official website for Disney's Beach Club Resort.  I hope these suggestions help. Please feel free to write back with any additional questions that you may have.  Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Celia!
    Happy Planning,
