We are planning to go to Disney and was wondering which of these resorts would you pick and why: Thanks

Can we get more info for these resorts thanks
AKL- My kids like to sleep in would they be bothered by the construction noise.
CSR i know this one isn't a deluxe.

My kids ages are 2 yrs and 4yrs. They like to wake up around 10- 11am have breakfast then we usually hang out around the resort and go to the parks around 2pm.

We really enjoy the location of the Epcot resorts.

For me it would depend on where I am spending most of my time. If it was me I would probably choose the BC. Being able to walk right into EPCOT and take a boat to DHS is always nice. The resort has an exceptional pool, the character breakfast at Cape May is our favorite, and Beaches n' Cream is right there also.

As the PP stated it all depends on where you will be spending most of your time. The Epcot resorts have a lot more to do and the pool at the YC & BC is fabulous. Happy Planning.

We love CSR. Although it is a very large and spread out resort, we love the landscaping, the Dig Site Pool and the Quiet Pools, and the food court. Although a lot of people feel it is not "Disney enough", we like the peacefulness and quietness of the resort after a long day at the parks.

Either BC or CR, the less time commuting to the parks the better
and they both have character dining
as you can prob tell i have kids ;)

Fort Wilderness Cabins because it seems like it will be nice to relax out on the deck, maybe cook out etc... We plan on having more resort time next trip.

After our experience at CSR, I wouldn't recommend it. The resort as a whole was beautiful, but our room was rather lackluster. We managed to get a room in the coveted Cabanas 9A. When we first entered the room there were food wrappers on the floor and it was overall quite dirty. We didn't like the lay out of the room - there was not enough room for the furniture they have in there plus the pack-n-play for our 1yo, our luggage, and our strollers (folded). The Pepper Market was awful. The food was not good and they were absolutely horrible when trying accomodate my son's food allergies. Due to our experiences there alone, we will never stay at CSR again.
We have stayed at YC and found it to be ok - it just wasn't our thing. However, we did walk over to BC and found that we really liked the decor and atmosphere there.
If you are going to spend alot of time at your resort (compared to our family, it seems like you will - our kids wake early and we typically have some cereal in our room then head out to the parks early) I would agree with the other posters and pick a place with a lot to do. The Epcot resorts are indeed a good choice.
We loved being able to walk to Epcot and even walked there and then to the front to ride the monorail to MK as the monorail is my 3yo's favorite ride!

Since you would have young kids I would recommend the Contemporary because it's the closest Resort to the Magic Kingdom. They are also the only Resort with a walkway to and from the Magic Kingdom and should you choose to take the Monorail back, the Contemporary is the very next stop.

Your children will want to spend much of their time at the MK (although they will love AK and maybe like Epcot). Therefore, I'd go for the location and convenience of the Contemporary. To be able to see the castle from the CR and walk to the park will be heavenly.:wizard:
