WL would be my choice but I know that at 6'1" my 16 yr old DS won't fit on the bunk bed completely. Your boys may be shorter and the BB may be ok for them.

You mentioned WL....
We have always booked and then later applied a discount. You could get a woods or even courtyard view for under $300/night, including 12.5% tax (based on current rates).

I love WL cuz it gives you the feel of being a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of WDW the minute you walk into the majestic lobby. DS(17) "refuses " to stay anywhere else. It is a pretty relaxing place which is very important to us.

Check out the WL thread, look at pics, decide what is important to you and Enjoy your planning!

Rent dvc points. A five night stay the week before thanksgiving is 82 points so that is 984$ for that week. You can go to the dvc rent and trade board for more information.

This is what we're doing in October, except for the free dining! SO excited! Hoping for a room discount though...
