10th anniversary trip with kids

We've decided to spend next thanksgiving time in the world and celebrate our 10th with 3 kids in tow: ages 8, 6, and 2 at the time. Too hard to coordinate babysitters for any long getaway so we will take a great trip with the kids. Want to rent points and can't decide where to stay. We've stayed at AKL, WL and Poly before.

I have no opinions as to where to stay except we are doing the same, we are celebrating our 10th anniversary with 2 kids in tow (2 and 5). Not really romantic, but it will be worth it to spend the time with the kids and see how happy they are going to be.

Good luck!

I can only speak to our experience but we celebrated our 10 year anniversary in 2012 at WL Club Level. Best trip ever!!! We brought our kiddos, and one night they went to the Cubs Den and we enjoyed a date night at Artist Point.

We celebrated our 20th at POFQ. Conveniently DD was born on our 9th wedding anniversary so now and forever more it is a "family celebration day"!

We've never stayed deluxe but if we could I'd go AKL or Poly!

We are celebrating our 15th anniversary at OKW in a 2 bedroom villa with our three boys (13, 10 and 6) and my MIL and FIL - now THAT is romance.

It really depends on your budget I guess. As long as I have a big enough (and comfortable enough) bed I'm good to go.

If you are looking to stay somewhere new, how about the VGF? I'm not sure how hard/easy it will be to rent points since it's new, but from pics I've seen, I think the villas are beautiful and look amazing. If renting points doesn't work out, the GF is beautiful and would make for a very nice anniversary trip, IMO. The grounds are beautiful, it's on the monorail and is convenient to MK, is convenient to the CR and Poly for a variety of dining options, and the rooms are large and spacious. With that said, I'm sure you'll have a great trip no matter which resort you choose. Good luck deciding and happy planning .

We're also taking the kids with us on our 10 yr anniversary trip. We're staying BC, club level. Not romantic, but it's our crazy life.

Based on where you've already stayed and the ages of your kids, I'd choose either BLT or BWV. I think it's fun to try new places.

If you plan on spending most of your time at MK, walking from BLT is amazing!

Being in the EP resort area is great with BWV and the performers on the BW are fun to watch.

The BCV's are great as well, but I'm not sure how much time you would spend at the pool that time of year (so I'd probably stick with BWV). You could try the BCV on a summer trip sometime.

Have a great trip!
