Vacation Club Resort
Make sure you check the daily events schedule which will highlight things that you can sign up for or really you just show up at the right time and have some fun with the Disney cast members that lead the festivities, like the hula hoops! go
The theme parks are a lot better when you can drink alcohol and not have to drive your car. That is why we like to stay on the Disney properties, like the Boardwalk Inn resort or maybe Caribbean Beach. It really doesn't matter which one you get, although there is a different level of amenities between the value resorts, mid-level, and deluxe resorts. They're all a lot of fun and each one has shuttles to the parks. It takes about ten minutes to go from the Caribbean Beach Resort parking lot to the Epcot entrance area, because it is not directly connected to Epcot. If you pick a hotel like the Boardwalk Inn resort, then you can walk within five minutes directly to the entrance of the Theme Park. We like doing all the rides and spent plenty of time inside the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and the Epcot showcase. It was the hotel experience that really surprises the most and we were very happy.
