Mom And Son Giraffe

    I am a member of the Disney Vaction Club (DVC) and I don't know were to stay!! I have to satay in a DVC resort but there are so many!! Can you please give me some ideas of which one to stay in??

    I'm a DVC member too. We LOVE the access it gives us to large living spaces at WDW!

    I personally have stayed in DVC accommodations at Wilderness Lodge (my home resort), Beach Club, Animal Kingdom Lodge and Saratoga Springs. Additionally I have stayed in a regular room at the Boardwalk and have toured Old Key West. Let me give you a little run-down on my experiences.

    Wilderness Lodge: In my opinion, the best themeing on property. Good location near the Magic Kingdom. Great on-site restaurants. Cozy lounging in the Iron Spike room.

    Animal Kingdom Lodge: Big bathroom! Nice flat screen TVs. Our savannah-view room had giraffes outside every morning (how cool is that!). Only drawback is that it is a fair distance from the parks other than the Animal Kingdom.

    Beach Club: The best pool at WDW by far! Good restaurants. Easy commute to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. This is where my family always begs to stay. Seriously, I can't think of any reason not to stay here if you can. The pool and the location make this an ideal spot.

    Boardwalk: Similarly great location (across the water from the Beach Club), but with a slightly less great pool. Still a good choice.

    Old Key West: Former Moms Panelist Laura swears by this resort. It has the biggest rooms at WDW.

    Saratoga Springs: My room here was very nice, but I wasn't thrilled with the location. The resort is very spread out and I don't enjoy being able to see non-Disney hotels off in the distance. On the plus side, the health club and spa services here are the best. Nice for being pampered. Also good if you're a golfer.

    My top choice is the Beach Club. Then Wilderness, Animal Kingdom, and Boardwalk are all closely tied for second.  Hope this gives you something to think about.
