We are staying at BLT in a 2bd with a lake view for 6 nights, we are going to extend our stay one extra day (Friday). I was thinking of trying GF outer building park view, but the pool at BC is very enticing. We are a family of 5, so deluxe preferably. I am looking for recommendations for a resort. We have previously stayed at Contemporary Tower View and Port Orleans Riverside. Our kids are 16, 13, and 5.
Will you have the option to go to the parks on your extra day? If so, I would pick a deluxe near your favorite park. BC is a good option because it is close to Epcot & HS (and they do have a good pool to hang out at if you are going to stay at the pool). For near MK I would choose Wilderness Lodge (they have the boats and it is beautiful!) and then I love animal so I always try to convince my family to stay at AKL with a safari view (but haven't experienced it yet because I keep out voted for other hotel choices)
