    Wondering what is the best resort for the Disney Dopey Challenge. I'd like to be close to Epcot with two separate sleeping areas. I want to be able to get ready on race mornings without waking my children. We'd prefer not to go over moderate resort pricing

    Hi, Rachel! 

    Congratulations on your decision to participate in the 2015 Dopey Challenge! 
    Though there isn't a resort that will meet all your criteria; close to Epcot, two sleeping areas, moderate resort pricing- I do have some great suggestions to consider. 

    Resort recommendations meeting space criteria:
    Disney's Art of Animation Resort- With spacious family suites available, this value level resort offers a reasonable price for the space you receive, not to mention your children will love the theming. This is not the closest option getting to/from Epcot via race transportation, but it's very manageable.

    Disney's Beach Club Villas- This resort is a deluxe level accommodation offering a one-bedroom villa that not only meets your need for space, but also your desire to be close to Epcot. This is my favorite Walt Disney World resort hotel--I love the proximity to Epcot, amazing resort amenities and abundance of great pre/post race dining options.

    Resort recommendations meeting moderate level pricing:
    Disney's Coronado Springs Resort- This moderate level resort offers your quickest route to Epcot based on location and race-morning traffic patterns. Additionally, Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is the only moderate level resort that offers suites and a Business Class option- giving you the advantage of a moderate with club level service.

    I hope this information is helpful, Rachel! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any additional questions you may have. 

    Happy Training!
