    Hi Erin, thanks for your answer to my question re: my 3yr old son, and 2 teen nieces and staying in a villa vs a st. room. I appreciate your insight and advice. How about the Wilderness Lodge Villas? Are those a good option and covenient?

    Hi Jennifer,

    The Wilderness Lodge is my home Disney Vacation Club resort. I've stayed there many times and absolutely love the decor. The WL villas are a good option and are often less expensive than Bay Lake Tower. The WL is a 10 minute boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom. This is very pleasant and a nice way to ease into your day. It is, however, very slightly less convenient than hopping on the monorail. As I said, the decor is fabulous and the pool there is great (better, in my opinion, than the pool at Bay Lake). I also adore both the table service restaurants at the WL. They're both among my favorites at WDW.

    I'm quite glad you wrote back because I did want to clarify something. Bay Lake Tower and Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani have two bathrooms in a 1BR villa. The Beach Club, Boardwalk, and Wilderness Lodge only have one bathroom in the 1BR villa. All villa resorts have two or three bathrooms in a 2BR villa.

    Frankly, with your particular traveling situation, you'd likely be most comfortable in a 2BR villa, but I know that this is a huge step up in price.

    I'm happy to answer more questions. Please let me know what I can do to help.
