    Congratulations on your fifth Walt Disney World vacation, Diana! I have stayed at DIsney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and DIsney's Wilderness Lodge in the past. To be perfectly honest, my absolute favorite place to stay is Disney's Beach Club Resort for the theming, central location, and Stormalong Bay, the best pool on property in my opinion. From Disney's Beach Club Resort, you can literally walk into Epcot via the International Gateway and easily travel to Disney's Hollywood Studios via the Friendship Ferry. Another benefit to staying in the Epcot Resort Area is having so many dining locations to choose from! During our stays at DIsney's Beach Club Resort, we can spend an entire day enjoying Stormalong Bay, poolside activities, roasting marshmallows over the campfire, and watching Movies Under the Stars at night. My family loves to eat burgers and delicious ice cream treats at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop located at DIsney's Beach Club Resort. When staying at Beach Club Resort, we also enjoy visiting Disney's Boardwalk to watch the street performers at night, rent a surrey bike, and play midway games. I often choose our resort based on the time of year that we are visiting. If visiting during the fall and winter, I prefer Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge or Disney's Wilderness Lodge. If traveling during the warmer months, I personally prefer Disney's Beach Club Resort. Stormalong Bay, a sand bottomed pool,  is like a water park in that it has the amazing Shipwreck slide, a lazy river with inner tubes available to rent, plus much more. I definitely think your children will love it! I hope this information helps in making your decision. Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Diana!
    Happy Planning,
