    Visiting WDW 7/27-8/5/12 with our 5yo & 7yo's 1st visit! Will stay at V @ WL for 1st 7 nights. Suggestions for last 2 nights please! and PH vs Basic tickets? Will ME transport our baggage from VWL to 2nd resort?

    Hi Marlyne - I have a 5 year old and a 7 year old, and I think that's a great age for a first trip to Walt Disney World!  Personally, I prefer to have the park hopper option on my tickets, because it offers a lot more flexibility in your trip.  However, with a 9-day trip, you can probably get away without the park hopper option if you have a good plan.

    For your second resort, I'd recommend Disney's Beach Club, which is my family's favorite resort.  It has a fabulous pool, and is located within walking distance to Epcot.  Bell services will transport your bags for you - just keep in mind that you won't have access to them right away.

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
