Where to stay other than Wyndham Bonnet Creek

We've stayed at WBC a few times and loved it, but I think that I would like to try somewhere new for the second week of our vacation. We MAY go to Legoland for a day, but we will mostly be hanging out at the resort. So I'm looking for good pools and fun kid activities. Kids are 10 ānd 12.


Suggestions?

the Marriotts - vacation club and Hilton Grand vacation club -are very nice.

they are closer to Seaworld than Disney - so a different area as well.

We have also stayed at Sheraton Vistana and enjoyed it. I prefer the room decor and layout there over WBC. The resort is very large and more rambling than Bonnet Creek. Lots of activities and pools.

We have also stayed at Marriott Harbour Lake, which also has a ton of activities and is awesome. My concern for you would be your kids may be a bit old for that resort.

Another vote for Sheraton Vistana Resort! We really enjoyed it.
