    I'm thinking about taking my 11,13 year olds in late July and don't know where to stay- we'd like to be a little close to the parks but not on monorail and would like a fun pool/beach area to come back to when we get too hot. We'll be going to MK, AK, and Epcot. Any thoughts??? do not need a budget hotel- would like a nice hotel - $200 range or so. Thanks

    I'm a huge fan of Coronado Springs. It's the newest of the "moderate" resorts..$179/night range. They have one of the coolest pools on property with a huge maya temple waterfall and a waterslide that has a jaguar that "spits" on you when you go down. Also, unlike the other moderate resorts, it has a full room service menu, and a much better food court that has alot more than the standard hamburger/hotdog menu. It also has a health club, and a spa.

    My kids loved the pool at the CBR and the buses were great, we didn't wait long at all. It was a great experience. Go to Disneyworld.com and take a virtual tour of the resort and others.
