"Beautiful"
I have never stayed here. However, I have spoken with people who have - and they had kids. They found the place to be very well run. The area is beautiful. You will have an unobstructed view. A friend of mine lived here when it was army housing - the view is just magnificent. The place is now run by the park service and they take it very seriously. There is lots to do near-by and transportation is very convenient. At least check it out as an option.

"Not the nicest neighborhood"
We stayed here over Christmas 2007, in a pool view room. The rooms are like small apartments - very spacious. Everything is run down, but efficient. The pool is beautiful - they had it all lit up for the holidays. Second floor rooms have nice balconies. There is a free breakfast which is very good - includes toast, bagles, and make your own waffles. It was hearty and really a nice touch. The staff here is very nice, too. Parking is very secure. I would stay here again - although I wish it was updated and in a little bit safer neighborhood.

EPCOT - Disney
Epcot Center Drive,
Lake Buena Vista,
Florida 32830
"Good food, good fun"
Epcot offers something for everyone. It has two sides - a science-based side and a world geography based side. The world geography is made up of many different pavilions - for sponsoring countries around the globe. Each country represented has contributed to their pavilion and many of the workers are from the host country. You can travel from Norway to Mexico! There are also many great restaurants in the World Showcase.
The science section has some fun rides. Don't miss Spaceship Earth, Innoventions, Test Track, and Universe of Energy (among others!).
Your kids will learn a lot and have fun! But, be prepared to walk. Epcot is massive. Plan on at least two days there. Bring or rent the stroller!

"Great for skaters and non-skaters"
This is a cool place to hang out whether you skate or not. There are almost always skaters practicing on the ramps - at all hours of the day. They are usually nice young people who will answer questions and give each other pointers. Whether you skate or not, it is fun to hang out and watch everyone and pick up some tips. If you plan on skating - WEAR A HELMET. Besides the safety issue, Pacifica police routinely swing by and hand out costly tickets to the unhelmeted skaters.

"Very fun"
This is a very fun place. For a few dollars, you can take the kids around back and feed animals. The store will give you carrots to feed - and you can visit chickens, sheep, goats; etc. You can also walk through the fields and see the crops growing. Finally, they have a little store where you can buy fresh produce, eggs, and other products - which were all fresh and very tasty.
