Howdy Melanie! Oh my goodness!! This is such a hard decision!! Your vacation sounds absolutely magical!!
During each part of your stay, which theme or water park do you plan to spend the majority of your time? Though it is very easy to get around Walt Disney World thanks to the fantastic transportation options, you might enjoy being close to the theme park or area where you will be spending the bulk of your time.
I checked with my resident "expert" on the subject (my 7 year old girl). Her recommendations for you and your daughter are:
If you will spend the majority of your time at Magic Kingdom, she suggests either Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort or The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Grand Floridian is beyond beautiful and you will love the amenities available in the villas. Bay Lake Tower always appeals to me because you can walk to Magic Kingdom from your resort.
If you will spend the majority of your time at Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios, she suggests Disney's Beach Club Resort. Beach Club is the favorite resort of my 4 year old son. If the weather will allow for spending time pool side, you will not want to miss spending time at Stormalong Bay. It's a 3-acre water wonderland that is loved by children of all ages.
My daughter's favorite resort is Animal Kingdom Lodge. She loves being able to look out and see animals from virtually anywhere in the resort. The only transportation to and from Animal Kingdom Lodge is by bus if you do not have access to your own personal vehicle. Regardless, the resort is beautiful and you truly feel as if you are in the middle of your own private African safari when you are there.
So many choices! The Disney Vacation Club Resorts are all amazing and I know you will love the resort(s) you select. Please let me know if you need any further information as you make your decision. Enjoy every magical moment of your vacation!!!!!
