For active families that love to swim and play in the pool, the Disney Beach Club resort pool is awesome! We have enjoyed a few of the theme park hotels, they do provide the most enjoyment. Trust me it is highly rated, and has the best pool area at Disney World.
Definitely nobody can go wrong with booking one of the Epcot area resorts. I think the Yacht Club Is Fantastic, because you're in the middle of it all. Make sure you walk over to the Disney Swan Resort, they have some great cafes and bars that are open to the public. That's why this area so good, you can walk around and do things at all five of the resorts that are here close to Epcot.
The Beach Club is the number one resort at Disney as far as I'm concerned for fun. Make sure you go on Stormalong Bay Pool Slide as many times as you can. One thing we always have to be concerned about is when to visit, because we like that the park lines to be kind of low.
I noticed there's a couple of websites that have a pretty good crowd calendar application, which attempts to correctly predict how big or how little the crowd would be on your vacation. That's a good Trip Planning tool, so you can make a good decision on when you want to visit Disney World Orlando.
Save cash by eating out and about. We went on a city tour. Good for sure was Ponderosa Steakhouse and Dexter's of Thornton Park for Dining.
