Need opinions

Ok Disers I need some opinions. We are 38 days from a trip and 132 from the other (both to WDW) and all I can think about is where to stay next May. Right now we are torn between AKL Club level, BLT castle view, and YC with SAB. There are 4 of us including DDs that will be 14 and 9. Please give me your take on these. Thanks bunches

I would do BLT castle view, mainly because I have always wanted to stay there.

I would do YC. May is a great time to swim and be outside at the pool. You can't beat Stormalong Bay and it is PERFECT for the ages of your kids. Plus you'll be in walking distance of Epcot, a boat ride from the Studios, and you'll have all the night life and excitement of the Boardwalk! AKL is a lovely resort but for us it just gets lonely and too remote after a couple of days. We like action and things to do and see. Your kids are almost the same age as mine so I'm guessing they like to keep busy. AKL is better if you really just want to relax and watch the animals. My kids don't like to sit longer than 5 minutes so it doesn't work for them. As for BLT I wasn't really impressed with it. The best part of course is being so close to MK, but the resort itself leaves a lot to be desired.

I think I'd go with YC for SAB. It's my goal to one day stay at every Disney resort so anything I pass on for one trip could be something I do on another.

Personally don't care for AKL at all, Y&B.... Only if i planned on a lot of EPCOT time...

BLT, again, if my main aim ( which for us is the most visited park during a stay ) was the MK would be my resort of choice... Not to keen on the villas, garden wing at the CR. suits us fine..
