Factors to consider:

     1.  Proximity to the parks: Some resorts are closer to specific parks. For instance, Disney's Beach Club Resort is a               short walk to Epcot, while the Contemporary is close to the Magic Kingdom.

     2.  Transportation: Consider the available transportation options. The monorail services the Polynesian, Grand                    Floridian, and Contemporary, making these convenient for Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Some resorts also offer   

          boat or Skyliner service.

     3.  Amenities: Pools, dining options, and recreational activities can vary between resorts.

     4.  Budget: Prices can vary considerably between Value and Deluxe resorts.

     5.  Theme and Atmosphere: Each resort has a unique theme, and choosing one that resonates with your interests

           can enhance your experience.

     6.  It's recommended to do thorough research, check guest reviews, and possibly consult with a travel agent

           familiar with WDW to find the best fit for your trip.
