Destination Disney -- Hotels and Resorts
Last week we got some fantastic input on Disney on a Budget. If you didn't check in throughout the week, you should go back and see what you missed.
This week's topic is hotels and resorts. Some of the topics you might choose to cover:
Where do you stay? Why do you choose to stay there? Are there any non-Disney owned properties that you would recommend? If you've stayed in several properties, I would love to read a run-down of each of them.
As always, you can link up to past reviews you have written if they contain some detailed information about where you stayed, or you could create a new post with links back to those posts and identify each hotel to which you are linking.
On our trip, we stayed at the Disney Beach Resort and Hotel. It was nice. The room I stayed in was fairly spacious with a nice bathroom vanity area. I can see how a family of four could get ready and not trip all over each other. There was also lots of storage--drawers--which is great if you are staying somewhere more than a couple days. I posted some pictures of the property HERE.
We also toured the All Star Music resort. It was very bright and clean. As one of the budget hotels on property, it certainly has a different feel, but for a third of the price, I'd say it was worth it! They have one bedroom suites there, which are small, but do offer a little more privacy when traveling with family, which we always appreciate. The picture is taken from the front door. On the left by the door was a small table. The sofa and the big chair are pull-out beds. There are two bathrooms--one straight back and one off the bedroom, which is around the corner to the left. There is also a very small kitchenette with a sink, microwave, and a small fridge and some counter and shelf space.
Now it's your turn.
Either link up to your own blog or leave a comment sharing info about properties you'd recommend (or perhaps that you'd recommend that we avoid).
Next week is Disney for Adults. Tell me about your favorite activities when you travel sans kids (or perhaps you bring the kids, but you use childcare--tell me about that too). Since next week is Memorial Day, and it might be a slow weekend online, I'm going to post it on Thursday to give everyone more time to jump in.
